Footnotes

  • "One Christmas when we were in Palm Beach, Florida, Bob spotted a really striking Art-Deco style brooch in the window of Lee Havens' shop on Worth Avenue. I was not with him at the time, but the friends who were also admired this eye-catching brooch. My very generous, loving husband gave it to me as a Christmas present. There was much excitement when I opened the box and saw this dazzling piece. Bob had outdone himself, I thought. He just laughed when I said that, and pointed out I'd never know what he had up his sleeve. I also wore the brooch as a pendant on a string of diamonds."

    Gift from Robert Bradford.
