An Interview with Eleanor
My mother, Eleanor Abbott, lived from August 1, 1919 - October 28, 1999. On August 3, 1999 (two days after her 80th birthday) we sat down together to talk a little about her life and some of her memories. I learned a few things! The recording of our 23-minute conversation is below.
Our family portrait (circa 1957). My parents, John & Eleanor Abbott, and their four sons. My brothers and I in order of age: John, Jr. (2nd row, far right); Arnold (2nd row, 2nd from right); Dennis (2nd row, far left); yours truly, Bruce (1st row with hand on Eleanor's shoulder).
If you perform or record my music please give it proper credit and inform me of the performance or recording. Any video and/or audio links as well as copies of concert programs will also be much appreciated!
