The Flexible Freddies likely refer to the Weston brand figure of the same name that Mr. Moore used in many of this photos. But, for the rest of the names, I’m left wondering if they are merely fictional characters, or real people from E. L. Moore’s past, maybe slightly disguised with made-up names. As well, I don’t know the significance - if any - of the checkmarks beside some of the names. Hopefully some or all of this will get cleared up as I read more papers.
