Here is some more about my family: my father's first cousin, Ruby Lazarus...
He was also mentioned in Ed Reid's 1969 book, "The Grim Reapers."
He died in 1991.
I have an audiotape that was transposed for me from three very old records. It was made by a sound specialist who works at Lincoln Center. The records were created by my father for his parents during a stopover in St. Louis as he headed to the Aleutian Islands during WWII. In one of the recordings my father mentions Ruby, who was with him in St. Louis as he also waited to be shipped out.
