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?
