In April 1954, Crown Electric of Memphis Tennessee, hired a young man. The pay was $1.00 an hour. He delivered supplies to job sites and hoped to train to become an ELECTRICIAN. Crown remained his employer until mid-October that same year, when he officially became a self-employed entertainer known as Elvis Presley.
