Happy Birthday, Peggy Lee, Actress and Award-Winning Jazz-Pop Singer


Peggy Lee was born Norma Deloris Egstrom on May 26, 1920, in Jamestown, North Dakota. At age 14, she started performing with a local band, The Doc Haines Orchestra, and singing with them for radio stations. While the program director at WDAY in Fargo was fond of Egstrom's voice, he liked her name less. He decided she looked “like a Peggy,” and renamed her Peggy Lee.
