B&T Site visitor Dick Quigley
sent this photo.
Here is his note:
"This picture was taken in 1943.
The young boy on the left is Oliver Dashiell. The two girls in the
picture are his sisters, June ,standing, and Doris Renee holding
the paintbrush. During the war, the girls lived in Greenwich Village,N.Y.
I don't know if Oliver lived with them. I do know that they had
relatives down south. I didn't know Oliver but I exchangedf letters
with Doris all during the war. I was in China. I never heard them
mention their mother but their father was in the OSS. Before the
war they lived in France and in England I am sending this because
there are so many similar things in their life. Perhaps this Oliver
is the Bud Dashiell of your website?"
While I have no hard-and-fast confirmation,
the circumstantial evidence is pretty compelling that this photo
shows Bud Dashiell at about the age of 11. Thanks to Dick for submitting
it to the site!
