Barry has earned degrees in English and French from the State University of New York College at Brockport, and a Master of Arts in Writing from the Johns Hopkins University. Tinseltown, a Finalist in the 24th Annual Lambda Literary Awards, is Barry’s first novel. His novel The Celestial won the Gold Medal in the 2012 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards and was a Finalist in the 25th Annual Lambda Literary Awards. His novel Paradise at Main and Elm, and two collections of short stories—A Special Kind of Folk and Reunion—were all Finalists in the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards. When not embroiled in his own writing, Barry sips wine, nibbles on chocolate, and watches films and TV—both the classic and the cheesy. David Skanderson is an economist who works in consulting on issues related to financial institution regulation and litigation, particularly on consumer protection regulations. He has a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Rochester, and a B.A. with majors in Economics and Italian from the California State University, Sacramento. David was born and raised in Northern California. When he is not working, he can be found practicing karate and aikido, and tending the garden.

Dave and I met at a Memorial Day party. I was talking with a friend, and I saw Dave walk out onto the patio, and it was one of those Who Is THAT? moments. He noticed me, too, from across the room (well, we were outside, so I guess technically it was across the yard) and soon banter turned to flirting turned to a first date. And how well I remember that date. We went to the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York. I was driving a Ford Escort at the time, which had been hit on the driver’s side by someone changing lanes without looking, so I had to crawl over the passenger seat to get in and out of the car. So graceful! Afterward we went back to Dave’s apartment where he showed off his gourmet cooking skills. The chemistry was there from the get-go, and I think that is why we have been together so long. It is just a perfect combination. Dave is the serious one, and I am the comic relief. He enjoys cooking, and I love the challenge of bringing the kitchen back to pristine order. As important is the stuff we enjoy together: gardening, travel, languages, movies, reading, and wine. We were married last year on our 25th anniversary. And I am already thinking about what kind of cake we should have for our 50th. - Barry Brennessel

Edward Morgan Forster was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. Forster was a humanist, homosexual, lifelong bachelor. He developed a long-term loving relationship with Bob Buckingham, a married police officer (his wife's name was May), whom he met in 1930 during an evening organized by J.R. Ackerley. Buckingham was there as a friend of Harry Daley, Ackerley’s current lover and Foster’s previous. When the two met, Buckingham was 28, Forster 51. May became his friend and nursemaid. Forster included the couple in his circle, which also included the writer and arts editor of The Listener, J.R. Ackerley, the psychologist Sebastian Sprott, and, for a time, the composer Benjamin Britten. Other writers with whom Forster associated included the poet Siegfried Sassoon and the Belfast-based novelist Forrest Reid. Another of Forster’s lovers was Charles Mauron (1899-1966), a French translator of contemporary English authors. Forster died of a stroke in Coventry on June 7, 1970, at the age of 91, at the home of the Buckinghams. Maurice (1971), a homosexual love story, was published posthumously. "A happy ending was imperative," Forster writes in Maurice's Terminal Notes, even though Maurice says: "All the world's against us."
Together from 1930 to 1970: 40 years.
Edward Morgan “E.M.” Forster (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)

Place
E.M. Forster lived in various addresses in London:
- in 1879, 6 Melcombe Place, Marylebone, NW1 E.M. Forster was born into an Anglo-Irish and Welsh middle-class family here in Dorset Square, in a building that no longer exists.
- in 1904, 11 Drayton Court, Drayton Gardens, Kensington, SW10
- in 1909 5 Raymond Buildings, Gray’s Inn, Camden (see Gray’s Inn)
- from 1925 to 1930, 27 Brunswick Square, Bloomsbury, WC1N.
- in 1930, 6 Hammersmith Terrace, W6:
Hammersmith Terrace is a street of brick-built 17 houses in Hammersmith, London, all of which are Grade II listed houses (except no 7 which is Grade II) built in about 1770, and that has been home to several notable artists. 6 Hammersmith Terrace was the house of J.R. Ackerley (November 4, 1896 – June 4, 1967) from 1925 to 1933, and in this flat Forster first met Bob Buckingham.
- from 1930 to 1940, 26 Brunswick Square, Bloomsbury
- until 1961, 9 Arlington Park Mansions, Sutton Lane, Chiswick, W4:
Bedford Park, designed largely by Norman Shaw, was described by Nikolaus Pevsner as the first place "where the relaxed, informal mood of a market town or village was adopted for a complete speculatively built suburb.” Some of the most beautiful period mansion blocks in the area, such as Heathfield Court and Arlington Mansions, line the sides of Turnham Green – the site of the Battle of Turnham Green in 1642. Other suburbs of Chiswick include Grove Park (south of the A4, close to Chiswick railway station) and Strand on the Green, a fishing hamlet until the late XVIII century. In 1896, Bedford Park was advertised as being in Chiswick, though at that time much of it was in Acton.
Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
E. M. Forster was a novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early XX century British society. Forster’s humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel “Howards End”: "Only connect ...” His 1908 novel, “A Room with a View,” is his most optimistic work, while “A Passage to India” (1924) brought him his greatest success. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 13 different years. Forster was homosexual (open to his close friends, but not to the public) and a lifelong bachelor. He developed a long-term, loving relationship with Bob Buckingham, a married policeman. Forster included Buckingham and his wife May in his circle, which included J. R. Ackerley, a writer and literary editor of The Listener, the psychologist W. J. H. Sprott and, for a time, the composer Benjamin Britten. Other writers with whom Forster associated included Christopher Isherwood, the poet Siegfried Sassoon, and the Belfast-based novelist Forrest Reid.

Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
The English cricketer, Robert Wilkinson was the landlord of a house named Rooks Nest near Chesfield Park, on Weston Road, Stevenage, rented between 1883 and 1893 by the author E.M. Forster and his mother Lily. They had to leave, unwillingly, when the Poyntz Stewarts, to whom the property had passed, wished it vacated. Forster had written a piece about the house, the "Rooksnest memoir", by 1894, when he was 15; and it mentions Wilkinson as landlord. “Howards End” (1910) was his novel about his childhood home; he continued to visit the house into the later 1940s, and he retained the furniture all his life.

Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
“Maurice” (1971) by E.M. Forster was published posthumously. It is a homosexual love story which also returns to matters familiar from Forster’s first three novels, such as the suburbs of London in the home counties, the experience of attending Cambridge, and the wild landscape of Wiltshire. The novel was controversial, given that Forster’s homosexuality had not been previously known or widely acknowledged. Today’s critics continue to argue over the extent to which Forster’s sexuality and personal activities influenced his writing. “Maurice” was adapted as a film in 1987 by the Merchant-Ivory team.

Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
At King’s College, Cambridge, between 1897 and 1901, E.M. Forster became a member of a discussion society known as the Apostles (formally named the Cambridge Conversazione Society.) Many of its members went on to constitute what came to be known as the Bloomsbury Group, of which Forster was a peripheral member in the 1910s and 1920s. There is a famous recreation of Forster’s Cambridge at the beginning of “The Longest Journey.” The Schlegel sisters of “Howards End” are based to some degree on Vanessa and Virginia Stephens, later Bell and Woolf, respectively.

Palazzo Jennings Riccioli, or Guasconi, is a palace in Florence, on Corso Tintori 7, looking at Lungarno delle Grazie.
Address: Corso dei Tintori, 7, 50122 Firenze, Italy (43.76701, 11.26172)
Type: Guest Facility (open to public)
Place
On the door is a shield with the arms of Guasconi and a stone plaque that recalls that here was, until recently, the Jennings Riccioli hotel. At the beginning of the XX century, in the same place, there was the Pensione Simi, where E.M. Forster stayed while in Florence: using the same interiors, the writer modeled the "pensione Bertolini" that is the backdrop for much of his novel “A Room with a View.” In the forties of the XX century here spent a long time the writer Tommaso Landolfi.
Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
A riverside residence, the Pensione Simi, at 2 Lungarno delle Grazie, was the home in 1901 of the novelist E.M. Forster and his mother. They had originally stayed at the nearby Albergo Bonciani, which Forster had liked, but his mother insisted they move because she wanted a room with a view. The Simi had a cockney landlady, who, according to Forster, “Scatters Hs like morsels.” Forster’s letter from there in 1902 epitomises the lifestyle of the pensione resident: “Oh what a viewpoint is the English hotel or Pension! Our life is where we sleep and eat, and the glimpses of Italy that I get are only accidents.” Forster returned to the Pensione Simi in each of the next two years and spent a further six years planning “A Room with a View,” during which time he wrote another Tuscany-based novel, “Where Angels Fear to Tread,” set in San Gimignano.

E.M. Forster and his mother occasionally lodged at the former Kingsley Hotel, now Thistle Holborn (36-37 Bloomsbury Way, WC1A), a rather forlom looking Edwardian hotel (named after “Water Babies” author Charles Kingsley) as it was near the Working Men’s College in Great Ormond Street, where Forster taught Latin. At the Kingsley, Forster wrote parts of his early “Italian” novels, “Where Angels Fear to Tread” (1905) and “A Room with a View” (1908), which were based on his experiences travelling throughout that country with his mother in the early years of the century.

Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
Surrey was home to Forster for over 40 years. As a child he visited his aunt at West Hackhurst (a house designed by his architect father), in the village of Abinger. Later he inherited the lease and lived there with his mother until her death. In September, 1946, he was forced to leave the property when the landlord refused to renew the lease. He adored the Surrey Hills and was inspired to use Coldharbour and Holmbury St Mary as settings in “A Room with a View.” He wrote scripts for two local pageants: “Abinger Pageant” in 1934 (held in the grounds of the Old Rectory, with proceeds going to St James church), and “England’s Pleasant Land” in 1938. Both were collaborations with Sir Ralph Vaughan-Williams and the latter performed in aid of the Dorking and Leith Hill Preservation Society, in the grounds of Milton Court, Westcott, where reportedly the idyllic setting was interrupted by rain. His essay “Abinger Harvest,” published in 1936, was also written to celebrate the village. Forster declined a knighthood in 1949 but on his 90th birthday he received the Order of Merit. After failing health in old age he died of a stroke in Coventry in June 1970, aged 91.

Notable queer residents at St. Lukes Place:
• Novelist Sherwood Anderson lived at No.12 in 1923.
• Poet Marianne Moore lived at No. 14 (1918-1929); in 1925, she became editor of The Dial.
• Painters Paul Cadmus and Jared French lived at No. 5; in 1947, novelist E.M. Forster stayed with them while visiting New York.
• No. 16 was the home of Novelist Theodore Dreiser; he began writing “An American Tragedy” while living here.
• Arthur Laurents lived at No. 9 for 50 years. A year after his death, the contents of his home, furniture, set and costume designs, memorabilia and more, went up for auction. Laurents’ personal papers, including manuscripts, letters and record albums, have been given to the Library of Congress. Laurents bought the XIX-century house in about 1960 for something like $60,000. Word is that Nathan Rothschild, who owns the house next door, has bought it and plans to combine the two. The price is said to be $9 million. Proceeds from the sale of the house and Laurents’ estate went to the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation, a charitable trust that supports new plays. Tom Hatcher was Laurents’ lover until his death in 2006. Their ashes are buried by a bench in Quogue, LI, where they had a beach house.
Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
The years immediately following E.M. Forster’s mother’s death were terrible for him; not only did he suffer intense grief, he also became worried that Bob Buckingham was no longer interested in him. But by 1949 the two men were on good terms again and they visited New York together, where they were photographed by George Platt Lynes. The photographs are remarkable: Forster looks every inch the eminent writer, Buckingham looks handsome and relaxed. In one, a domestic portrait of the pair, they gaze directly at one another with great humour and warmth, Buckingham shining down on Forster. For two men not publicly "out" in any way, it is an extraordinarily revealing pose.

Place
Coventry is a city and metropolitan borough in the centre of England. It was the capital of England more than once in the XV century when the seat of Government was held in Coventry. Coventry’s heritage includes the Roman Fort at Baginton, Lady Godiva, St Mary’s Guildhall (where kings and queens were entertained) and three cathedrals. Located in the county of West Midlands, historically part of Warwickshire, Coventry is the 10th largest city in England and the 13th largest UK city overall. It is also the second largest city in the West Midlands region, after Birmingham, with a population of 337,400 in 2014.
Life
Who: Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (January 1, 1879 – June 7, 1970)
For 40 years, E.M. Forster and the policeman Bob Buckingham were in a loving relationship. Buckingham was 28, Forster 51, when the two met. They shared holidays, friends, interests, and – on many weekends – a domestic and sexual life in Forster’s Brunswick Square flat. Buckingham’s wife, May – also became E.M. Forster’s friend and nursemaid. Perhaps this is not so surprising for the writer who valued personal relationships above all else, and for whom the motto "only connect" applied as much to his private life as to his novels. Buckingham was a large, good-humoured man, with a nose flattened in the boxing ring, a wide smile and a deep, loud laugh. On the day they met, he impressed Forster with his knowledge of the Thames and told him he was reading Dostoevsky. Forster invited Buckingham to his flat, and soon the two became close, with Forster taking over Buckingham’s reading list, and Buckingham thrilled to become something of a highbrow. Soon Forster was in a position to write of Buckingham’s falling "violently in liking" with him. To his friend Sebastian Sprott, Forster wrote with rather old-maidish coyness that the "spiritual feeling" between him and Buckingham had now "extended to my physique.” During these early years of their relationship, Forster seems to have at last found happiness. In his Commonplace Book, he reported that "From 51 to 53 I have been happy, and would like to remind others that their turn can come too." This was in spite of Buckingham finding a girlfriend – May Hockey, a nurse – not long after he’d met Forster. In 1932 Buckingham announced that he was to marry May; the register-office wedding took place in August, with Forster as witness. Once Buckingham was married, Forster’s worst fears seemed to come true – Buckingham became rather unreliable about their meetings, and Forster panicked, calling his rival "domineering, sly and knowing" and wondering if he should break with his lover and go abroad to escape the situation. Buckingham, ever the voice of calm sense, wrote that the two of them simply had "to go without pleasure for a bit.” Following his final stroke in May 1970, Forster was fetched from his rooms at King’s College by the Buckinghams and put to bed at their Coventry house, where he died. For most of that morning, he held May’s hand. After his death, May wrote: "I now know that he was in love with Robert and therefore critical and jealous of me and our early years were very stormy, mostly because he had not the faintest idea of the pattern of our lives and was determined that Robert should not be engulfed in domesticity. Over the years he changed us both and he and I came to love one another, able to share the joys and sorrows that came." E.M. Forster is buried at Canley Garden Cemetery and Crematorium (Cannon Hill Rd, Coventry, West Midlands CV4 7DF).

Golders Green Crematorium and Mausoleum was the first crematorium to be opened in London, and one of the oldest crematoria in Britain.
Address: 60 Hoop Ln, London NW11 7NH, UK (51.57687, -0.19413)
Type: Cemetery (open to public)
Phone: +44 20 8455 2374
English Heritage Building ID: 199262 (Grade II, 1993)
Place
The land for the crematorium was purchased in 1900, costing £6,000, and the crematorium was opened in 1902 by Sir Henry Thompson. The crematorium, the Philipson Family mausoleum, designed by Edwin Lutyens, the wall, along with memorials and gates, the Martin Smith Mausoleum, and Into The Silent Land statue are all Grade II listed buildings. The gardens are included in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. Golders Green Crematorium, as it is usually called, is in Hoop Lane, off Finchley Road, Golders Green, London NW11, ten minutes’ walk from Golders Green tube station. It is directly opposite the Golders Green Jewish Cemetery (Golders Green is an area with a large Jewish population.) The crematorium is secular, accepts all faiths and non-believers; clients may arrange their own type of service or remembrance event and choose whatever music they wish. A map of the Gardens of Remembrance and some information on persons cremated here is available from the office. The staff are very helpful in finding a specific location. The columbaria are now locked, although they can still be visited (if accompanied.) There is also a tea room.
Notable queer burials at Golders Green Crematorium:
• Richard Addinsell (January 13, 1904 - November 14, 1977), was a British composer, best known for film music, primarily his Warsaw Concerto, composed for the 1941 film “Dangerous Moonlight” (also known under the later title “Suicide Squadron”). Addinsell retired from public life in the 1960s, gradually becoming estranged from his close friends. He was, for many years, the companion of the fashion designer Victor Stiebel, who died in 1976.
• Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson (1862-1932), Scholar and advocate of a league of nations. He was the third of the five children of Lowes Cato Dickinson (1819-1908) and his wife, Margaret Ellen (d. 1882), daughter of William Smith Williams.
• Edith Ellis (1861-1916), psychologist. She was noted for her novels and memoirs.
• Havelock Ellis (1859-1939), psychologist. He and his wife, Edith Ellis, were psychologists and writers. He wrote the controversial "Studies in the Psychology of Sex," which was banned as obscene.
• Anna Freud (1895-1982) and Dorothy Burlingham (1891-1979), next to each other and to others in the Freud family, including Sigmund Freud.
• Kenneth Halliwell (1926-1967), British actor and writer. He was the mentor, partner, and the eventual murderer of playwright Joe Orton. Their ashes were mingled and scattered in the same garden.
• Ivor Novello (1893-1951), actor, writer and lyricist. His ashes are buried beneath a lilac tree which has a plaque enscribed "Ivor Novello March 6, 1951 “Till you are home once more”.”
• Norman O'Neill (1875-1934), British composer and conductor. His studies were facilitated by Eric Stenbock, with whom it is said he had a relationship. He married Adine Berthe Maria Ruckert (1875-1947) on July 2, 1899 in Paris, France. Adine was a celebrated pianist and music teacher in her own right. When he died in 1934 he was cremated at Golders Green Crematorium, London, as was Adine on her death in 1947. There is a plaque there in memory to both of them.
• Joe Orton (1933-1967), playwright. Orton and his lover, Kenneth Halliwell, moved at 25 Noel Road, Islington, in 1959, at a time when the area was far from fashionable. Eight years later, Halliwell killed himself after murdering Orton.
Cremated here but ashes taken elsewhere:
• Sir Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947), 1st Earl of Bewdley, K.G., P.C. was the leading Conservative politician between the two world wars and was Prime Minister for three terms (1923-4, 1924-29 and 1935-37). Ashes removed to Worcester Cathedral.
• Roger Fry (1866-1934), English artist and critic, a member of the Bloomsbury group. He had an affair with Vanessa Bell, and when she left him, he was heartbroken. Only in 1924 he found happiness with Helen Anrep, a former wife of the Russian-born mosaicist, Boris Anrep. His ashes were placed in the vault of Kings College Chapel, Cambridge, in a casket decorated by Vanessa Bell.
• In his later years Lord Ronald Gower had been a crusader for cremation, and after his death on March 9, 1916 his body was cremated at Golders Green, and his ashes were interred at Rusthall, Kent, on March 14, 1916.
• John Inman (1935-2007), actor, star of “Are You Being Served?,” location of ashes unknown.
• Joan Werner Laurie (1920–1964) was an English book and magazine editor. She met journalist and broadcaster Nancy Spain in 1950 and they became life partners. Joan and Nancy lived openly together with their sons, and later the couple provided a home to Windmill Theatre owner and rally driver Sheila van Damm. She was learning to fly when she died, with Nancy Spain and four others, when the Piper Apache aeroplane crashed near Aintree racecourse on the way to the 1964 Grand National. She was cremated with Spain at Golders Green Crematorium, London. The relationship between Werner Laurie and Spain is described in Rose Collis' biography of Nancy Spain, published in 1997.

Place
The town became the summer residence of the court of Napoleon and his sister, Elisa Baciocchi. A casino was built, where gambling was part of social nightlife, as well as a large hall for dances. At the Congress of Vienna (1814), the Duchy of Lucca was assigned to Maria-Louisa of Bourbon as ruler of Parma. It continued as a popular summer resort, particularly for the English, who built a Protestant church there. The church now has been converted to the Bagni di Lucca Biblioteca (library) and holds archives and records that date back to centuries ago. In 1847 Lucca with Bagni di Lucca was ceded to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, under the domain of the Grand Duke Leopold II of Lorraine. His rule started a period of decline for the springs and casino as a destination, since he was used to a secluded life. In 1853 the casino was closed. It was reopened after 1861, when Lucca became part of the unified Kingdom of Italy. In the 1940s, during the German invasion of Italy, Bagni di Lucca, along with many other towns located in the Apennines, was occupied, as they were along the Gothic Line. Several houses and mansions in the area were used as residences for German soldiers and some residents born after 1940 in this region have German ancestry. The English cemetery is a sacred place which is located in Bagni di Lucca, about 300 meters from the Church of England, on the other side of the river Lima. In 1842 Carlo Ludovico di Borbone granted to the British colony of Bagni di Lucca the faculty to establish a Protestant cemetery. They chose a place called "al Prato Santo (the Holy Meadow)" and, although the works were finished in 1844, the first burial happened immediately after the purchase. The graveyard was in operation until 1953 and there are 137 people who rest there. In 1982, with the exhaustion of a legacy for maintenance, the holy site was purchased by the town of Bagni di Lucca. The cemetery is currently managed by the Fondazione Michel de Montaigne and Istituto Storico Lucchese and is accessible to visitors every day (except Sunday) from 10.00 to 18.00. Among the people buried here, often in tombs made by famous sculptors such as Benjamin Gibson, Joseph Norfini and Emilio Duccini, are the novelist Ouida, Henry and Elizabeth Stisted and Irish entomologist Alexander Henry Haliday.
Notable queer burials at Cimitero Inglese di Bagni di Lucca:
• Rose Elizabeth Cleveland (June 13, 1846 – November 22, 1918), was the First Lady of the United States from 1885 to 1886, during the first of her brother U.S. President Grover Cleveland’s two administrations.
• Nelly Erichsen (1862-1918) was an English illustrator and painter. From 1912 until Nov. 1918, Erichsen was living in the quiet Tuscan spa town of Bagni di Lucca with two companions - Evangeline Whipple and Rose Cleveland. Whipple was the widow of the American Episcopal Bishop Henry Whipple, known for his evangelical work among the native Indian population. Whipple and Cleveland had first met in the winter of 1889–1890, and resumed their relationship in 1901 (after the death of Henry Whipple), moving from the USA to Italy in 1910. In 1918 tragedy struck, when both Rose Cleveland and Nelly Erichsen were carried off by the 1918 flu pandemic which decimated the post-war World. Evangeline Whipple died in London in 1930, but she was laid to rest in Bagni di Lucca next to the tombs of the two friends who had preceded her.
• Ouida (1839-1908) was the pseudonym of the English novelist Maria Louise Ramé (although she preferred to be known as Marie Louise de la Ramée.)
• Edward Perry Warren (1860-1928), known as Ned Warren, was an American art collector and the author of works proposing an idealized view of homosexual relationships. He is now best known as the former owner of the Warren Cup in the British Museum. At Oxford Edward Perry Warren met archeologist John Marshall (1862–1928), a younger man he called "Puppy," with whom he formed a close and long-lasting relationship, though Marshall married in 1907. Beginning in 1888, Warren made England his primary home. He and Marshall lived together at Lewes House (with Marshall’s wife, Mary), a large residence in Lewes, East Sussex, where they became the center of a circle of like-minded men interested in art and antiquities who ate together in a dining room overlooked by Lucas Cranach’s “Adam and Eve,” now in the Courtauld Institute of Art. Ned Warren, John Marshall and Mary are all buried together in Bagni di Lucca.
• Evangeline Marrs Whipple (1860-1930), widow for the second time (she first married the wealthy businessman Michael Hodge Simpson and then bishop Henry Benjamin Whipple), visited Bagni di Lucca in 1910, lodging at Hotel Continental and then taking residence at Casa Bernardini at Bagno alla Villa. This is the house she shared with Rose Cleveland and Nelly Ericksen. Rose and Nelly died in 1918. In 1928 Evangeline wrote “A Famous Corner of Tuscany” about Bagni di Lucca. Around this time she bought Casa Burlamacchi, completing restoring the “Casa Piccola” (Little House, now Villa San Francesco), in front of the garden at the back of the “Casa Grande” (Big House.)

Victor Buono (1938–1982) was an American actor and comic and briefly a recording artist. He was most famous for playing the villain King Tut on the television series “Batman” (1966-1968) and musician Edwin Flagg in “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” (1962), the latter of which earned him Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations. Buono is quoted as saying, "I've heard or read about actors being asked the immortal question, 'Why have you never married?' They answer with the immortal excuse, 'I just haven't found the right girl.' Because I'm on the hefty side, no one's asked me yet. If they do, that's the answer I'll give. After all, if it was good enough for Monty Clift or Sal Mineo..." Buono was unusual among homosexual performers of his era by openly living together with same-sex partners, although he was not flamboyant about his lifestyle and referred to himself as a "conscientious objector" in the "morality revolution" of the 1960s. Buono was found dead at his home in Apple Valley, California, on New Year's Day 1982; he died of a sudden heart attack. He is entombed with his mother Myrtle in Greenwood Memorial Park (4300 Imperial Ave, San Diego, CA 92113), but his name is not inscribed on the crypt.
