Anna George De Mille’s Private Recollections of Her Father

In an article for the St. Louis Dispatch, Anna George De Mille shared some of her private recollections of her father.  Among the memories she shared was the following:

“Nobody could quiet me but father, nobody could soothe my imaginary fears like him…He used to take me in his study and show me pictures of birds.  I don’t know what kind of birds they were–they seemed to be doves, red and blue doves.  I suppose it was their bright colors that attracted me.  I was too young to speak, but it seems to me if I could find the books they were in I could turn to the very page.”

The full article can be found in Series Three of the Henry George and Anna George De Mille Family Collection.
