My apologies to those of you who own a copy of Fat Men and Fabulous Ladies. There is a mistake on pages 196-97 which needs to be corrected. I inadvertently switched the information for two women. Mary Powell was Mary Ellender Jennings, daughter of Israel Jennings and Ruth Crawford. Josiah was Ruth’s father, not Mary’s. As always I am happy to make corrections, and the new printings of the book will have the corrections.
