Not sure how comprehensive this is, but I did a search for "Elvis" between the years of 1950 and 1963 and nothing came up. I find it a little hard to believe that no newspaper published a photo of Elvis Presley in that time.

There's a lot to unpack there. Spankings were a legitimate form of punishment?

IKR... and those kids are way too old to be his... so Mrs Fremont left Mr Fremont and took their two kids with her to go live with her 15 YO new hubby.... who's dropping out of school to get a job and support the family.

Thats a bright bright future you got there. The sky is the limit!

Actually, yes they were. They were mostly applied to women, and they were a criminal punishment. I am not sure when the USA changed the laws about spanking. I have an article from a Canadian law review from back in the day that discussed removing it from our criminal statutes. It is considered corporal punishment. Even after being removed from criminal sentencing, right into the 1960s, it was considered legal for husbands to spank wives as punishment for misbehaving in the household. In North America, anyhow.
