      Blanding Don slsmn Hon S-B r The Wolters apts

      Blanding Don with Hon S-B

      NOTES: All entries are typed exactly as they appeared. I'm curious
      where 'The Wolters' was? The indication is that his brother James AND
      his mother Ida BOTH passed away in 1926. Tom Sharp owned a sign
      company, and somewhere Blanding mentioned that he painted signs to
      make a living. Gurrey's was an art shop in Honolulu. Blanding
      designed souvenirs for them. George Mellen took over the Charles R.
      Frazier advertising agency in 1925 or 1926...he must have kept James
      on. Blanding left Hawaii in 1924...and 1926. We know that in 1926 he
      was in Los Angeles...but where was he in 1924. New York? He mentions
      NY in Paradise Loot.
