      I have a whole scrap book I believe was Elisa and Don Blanding. I'll try to dig it up and scan the pages. One 8x10 black and white pic is don sitting down in the middle of the the crowd of hollywood elite. posing for a pic. I believe at a Library in southern California.  I pick this scrapbook up at roseville auction in California a few years back.

      Armine von Tempsky was there with him at one time and it is she that introduced him to Charmian London when she visited the Ball's in LA.

      I've received my first batch of material from the Huntington.  There's nothing exciting in it except some letters between DB and Elisa London Shepard, who managed Jack London's property in Glen Ellen CA.  It does tell me that Don himself knew her prior to going there for a few weeks on his way to Carmel with Scotty on their road trip.  I recall some past speculation that it was Armine that knew Elisa and it was she that got them to go there.  Apparently not.  Much of the material is dated which is a bit unusual for DB but nice for putting it into a time line.  My next batch will be the letters/communications from/to his agent.  Those might be more interesting.  tj
