There's an obituary in today's New York Times (4-29-06) re: Florence L.
Mars, 83. She was a native of Philadelphia, MS who wrote a book called
"Witness in Philadelphia", which was about the 1964 murder of three civil
rights workers. This book, naturally enough, had a major impact on her
life. But even with the book aside, the obit describes a remarkable life,
one that includes a period in the 1950's when she lived in New Orleans and
photographed jazz musicians.
I'd be interested in learning more about that, or, for that matter, anything
further about Ms. Mars). Anybody got any info?
