- Jan 17, 2006Hi Jackie,
I'm responding to your message about the model on my Hawaiian shirts
page. You said it may be your mother in law...how interesting!
In May 2003 a woman from Sacramento donated a whole folder of items
to me from her late grandmother Jeanne Wright, who designed
Blanding's first line of Hawaiian clothing in 1953.
Included in the packet were about a dozen photos of the
designs...most of them being modeled by this woman. Also there were
some drawings (possibly by Don) and articles about the designs,
I've uploaded a better photo of the model to my website. Please look
at it and let me know if it is indeed Nancy Buck so that I can
update my notes. Link to photo:
Also, thanks for your kind comments on the 'Lost Works' book.
