Thanks for that, Chuck. Someone has suggested to me that Babette may well have collaborated with John McCusker from New Orleans. His research into Ory's family & his early career in LaPlace was published in "Jazz Archivist" just over a year ago. It's very good news that a biography of Ory may soon be published.
