LeGrand in Takrazuka, Japan, December 20, 1945

LeGrand's niece, Susan Freeze, provided this photo, taken at Takarazuka (not Takaraza), Japan while he was serving in the Army of Occupation following World War II. (Apparently, while sailing to serve in the Pacific Front of the War, the Japanese surrendered, so LeGrand served there in the Signal Corps.) 26 years old at the time, LeGrand later reported that he was asked to sing the Messiah in the chorus at the (otherwise) all-girl Takarazuka Theater.
