Today the Rochester Post Bulletin printed an article about my book progress. They highlight the challenges and opportunities I face, as a researcher and writer. Telling a historical story to make it relevant to today is my goal. I'm exploring his journals, papers and other expedition members information to create the story of Admiral Byrd's III expedition to the South Pole. It's a little known story that needs to have it's place in history.
In the actual newspaper, (not the online version), Mike Dougherty asks on my behalf, to send me stories and experiences about my father. George has many admirers, many of whom I've never met. Others have stories I've not heard.
If you knew him or know someone who had an experience, please email me with your experience at contact.leilani (AT) beingandliving.com. The moment the article came out, I received my first, heartfelt story. This is very exciting!
