I think a lot of the Women Beat s "stuff" is here, in the University of Md.'s library..

and

as I recall Lenore was very close to Lew Welsh... et al!

Lenore Kandel's obituary ran across the top of a page of the San Francisco Chronicle; the lower left quarter of the page was devoted to a Viagra advertisement. I'm not sure. Do you think we're better off now?

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Excellent article, Ed, thanks.

If this is an implied choice from the Chronicle, Kandel or viagra, I'm ever so yesterday. Thanks, Charles, I'll check out the obit.
