Thanks so much for your reply, Vanessa. Did Laura Mae die in California or in Iowa? I know she is buried in Iowa. She was so much younger than Fred that I had discounted them meeting in Southeast Asia. Interstingly, Fred helped run a charity during the World War II to support academics who were civilian prisoners of the Japanese in the Philippines. It seems the archives for this charitable endeavor are held in one of the libraries of the Univ of CA. I live in the UK so I have been able to do some research into Fred's work as a British civil servant in the Straits Settlements and Federated Malay States and have discovered that the main road through the Forestry Institue of Malaysia is called Foxworthy Road! Thanks again for your help.
