BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

June Hutton

June Hutton (née June Marvel Cowan; August 11, 1919 Bloomington, Illinois – May 2, 1973 Encino, Los Angeles) was an American actress and vocalist, popular with big bands during the 1940s. She was the younger sister of vocalist Ina Ray Hutton.

Hutton’s parents were Marvel Svea Williams and Odie Daniel Cowan. June and her older sister, Ina Ray Hutton, both grew up to be entertainers and performers during the Big Band era.

Growing up in Chicago, Hutton attended Hyde Park High School, as did her older sister, Ina. While attending high school, she worked in the dress department at Marshall Fields department store. After graduating, she quit her job and pursued her singing career. In her early days, she sang at the “Astor Roof” in New York City. She was part of the Winston Trio, the Quintones, and the Sande Williams Band. She appeared with the Quintones in Hi Ya, Gentlemen, a failed musical with boxer Max Baer. In 1941, she became the female vocalist for the Stardusters, the singing group of Charlie Spivak & His Orchestra.

After Jo Stafford left The Pied Pipers in 1944, Hutton replaced her. She performed with the Pied Pipers for six years, recording several hit records including the song “Dream.” In 1950, Hutton left the Pied Pipers, going solo on Decca Records.

In 1951, Hutton married Axel Stordahl, a musical arranger for Tommy Dorsey. In 1952, she went to Capitol Records, backed by an orchestra led by her husband. She recorded three hit records at Capitol: “Say You’re Mine Again”, “No Stone Unturned”, and “For the First Time”.

Stordahl died in 1963. June married actor Kenneth Tobey in 1968. They divorced in 1972. Hutton died on May 2, 1973, at the age of 52. She is buried beside her first husband Axel Stordahl at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, in Los Angeles.
