Returned from Sacramento

Returned from Sacramento, where I had spent Friday afternoon at the California State Library. I was able to finish off some research odds and ends. I completed my scan of the Santa Monica Evening Outlook and the Bakersfield Californian, and found about a half-dozen articles and reviews in each. Some good material . . . . I also took a quick look (again) at the Hollywood Citizen News and Los Angeles Examiner - I had to double check some things, as well as the Fullerton Daily Tribune. The Fullerton paper may yield some material, but I just didn't have time to go through it properly. Should I return to the library some time, I may scout that newspaper.

And lastly, I took a look at phone books (on microfilm) from Los Angeles from 1928 and 1940. I wasn't able to find a white pages listing for Louise Brooks in the 1928 white pages, but I was able to find a listing for Eddie Sutherland! The 1940 yellow pages yielded a listing for the Brooks-O'Shea dance studio. If anybody has the inclination to do so, it might be good idea to check the New York City phone books for the various periods that Louise Brooks lived there. It would be neat to find out exactly where she lived.
