  1. I am compiling information on women authors of this period who collaborated with writer husbands, as in the case of Eileen Bassing and her husband Bob. However, as with reader Eva above I can find next to nothing about her. If you do have information, would you let me know where to go about looking for it? Thanks, Maia Haines

  2. I am finishing a biography of Polly Adler who was a friend of Eileen Bassing. Bassing helped Polly draft her memoir A House is Not a Home in 1949 and I am looking for a little more information about her. May I take a look at the biographical materials you have, solely for research purposes? Many thanks, Debby Applegate
