I think, the correct date is September 18, 1957 - not August

Meeting between Elvis and Police Captain Robert F. Glisson, director of safety for city schools, took place at Graceland on Wednesday, September 18, 1957 were they working out final details for Elvis' s appearance on WKNO-TV's "Safety Hit Parade" on September 20, 1957

Well done Jupiter & cadillac-elvis, with a nod to TonyS for persistence !

It seems he did appear on television on the 20th September, 1957:

Wonder if any recording was made of this broadcast, or any photos taken...

I can't take partial credit for that one.
I was too far off.
Never have seen that photo before.
I was going for times he was out and about, but I was off.

Well, you nailed it down to Memphis when others were going all over the shop, so you deserve a credit!
