In 1934, Swedish on June 18, 2016 at 1:02 pm


Inger Stevens was born on 18 October 1934 in Stockholm, Sweden. Her maiden name was Stensland and she had two younger brothers, Ola and Peter. When she was six years old, her mother Lisbet divorced her father Per … Before WWII, Per Stensland emigrated to the United States on an academic fellowship … He remarried and brought his children to Kansas, there Inger spent her youth living in a town called Manhattan. One day she’d make it to the “real” Manhattan, but first she ran away from home to Kansas City, at age 15. She joined a burlesque show and danced on the chorus line under the stage name “Kay Palmer”, before her father caught her and brought her home. popMATTERS.
