Re: Eleanor Files Patch

Greetings:

I am the only person who has possession of Mrs. Patch's
authentic/original manuscript, notes, research, and work. The manuscript the college has is NOT an authorized copy of her work, and suspect as to it's provenience. Draft copies were made and then NOT distributed due to the number of errors made by the typist. The research you have is useless and not representative of her work, standards, and accomplishments.

I find it criminal to know a place of higher education would not have done a little genealogy itself and contact the executor to authenticate and acknowledge the research material as hers.

If you knew her at all, you would know she would not release any material that was not perfect.

If anyone has specific questions I can answer, I will do the best I can to locate the entry.

Regards,
Douglas Crawford
