The Evelyn Brent Research Project
Lynn Kear, co-writer of Kay Francis: A Passionate Life and Career, is researching the life and career of actress Evelyn Brent. Lynn and her research assistant are interested in hearing from anyone who knew Evelyn or has information on any of her husbands: B.P. Fineman, Harry D. Edwards, Harry Fox, or on her friends, Dorothy Herzog and Dorothy Konrad (the last name is sometimes listed as Conrad). They are also seeking info on Harry Fox Jr., son of Harry Fox and Beatrice Curtis.
They would like to hear from friends, neighbors and co-workers of Evelyn, Harry Fox, Dorothy Konrad, and Dorothy Herzog during the time they lived in the Westwood area of L.A. circa 1955-1975, clergy and church members who attended services with Evelyn and Dorothy at the St. Paul the Apostle Church in L.A., and any fans that attended film screenings when Evelyn was present.
