Bruce Bliven Jr. “Child’s Best Seller”,
Bruce Bliven Jr. “Child’s Best Seller”, Life Magazine, December 2, 1946, I have a copy of this magazine. I finally found it in a store in Yountville, in Napa County CA that carries hundreds of Life magazines. The article is fascinating. Mr. Blevin was a friend of Browns and that familiarity is evident in the casual way he describes her personality and habits. I thought it was charming and showed MWB’s character honestly.
