Exclusive access to a rare treasure
Thanks to the generosity of Eileen Slocum's family, we have been given exclusive access to Eileen's vast archives, including photographs and her personal diaries, which chronicle her life and her world unlike anything else known to exist. These are truly treasures -- of great historical importance -- and we are blessed to have the cooperation of Eileen's family. Pictured is a volume of Eileen's diary from 1953. We are just starting through this large volume, which includes clippings and telegrams, but I can tell you that based on a perusal -- in-depth study to follow -- this is awesome. And I don't often use that word.
