      I have most of the articles about their visit to the island that pertain
      to the vT's and have read most of what was written about them looking for
      the vT's.

      Mahalo for all you have done for my project.

      Jack London certainly was well known when Don Blanding was a school boy, so
      it is very likely that he read his books.

      London died in November 1916, just a month or so before DB arrived in
      Honolulu. The newspapers often mentioned London and his wife, particularly
      in regard to the lifesize bust that was commissioned to honor his memory.

      I think DB may have met Charmian long before 1935; he met Armine in 1928,
      and both DB and Charmian were in Honolulu in earlier years.

      TJ, I have a number of Honolulu Star-Bulletin or Advertiser clips about the
      Londons. Give me a few days to round them up and perhaps I can provide more
      information about any connection to DB.

      Bev, did I include the London clips when I sent you material about Armine?
