Anthony Wayne Rotary members will restore the Carole Lombard plaque Saturday at the childhood home of the movie actress at 704 Rockhill St., where she lived until the age of 6.

Lombard, born Jane Alice Peters on Oct. 6, 1908, in Fort Wayne, became the highest-paid actress in Hollywood in the late 1930s, earning about $500,000 a year.

Lombard was married to Clark Gable when she was killed in a plane crash in 1942.
