Correspondence of Betty Lussier

Scope and Content

Betty Lussier, for many years the wife of Ricardo Sicré, writes from New York, Spain, France and Switzerland (where her sons attended school). Her letters give news of family, and mutual acquaintances including Ava Gardner and Alistair Reid. Letters are variously addressed to Graves, Beryl Graves, or both.


Correspondence is arranged into approximate chronological order; however most of the correspondence is undated, rendering the order unreliable.
