I write about history, but was remiss and I should know better.  Therefore, I am apologizing to Princeton Professor Martha Sandweiss for not mentioning her and her book, Passing Strange.  She was the first person to explore this relationship, which Clarence King‘s other biographers avoided.  Professor Sandweiss is the one who did the massive research to try and learn about something that is barely covered.

I will have to walk around the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, the next time I am there.  I attended PS7 near where Ada King lived on Hudson Avenue.  Now Jacques Torres has his flagship store down there.  Who would have known? 🙂

I digress though.  This is for Professor Sandweiss, not me.  I’ve been selfish enough for one week.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
