Alma Mahler

Sir, I have been commissioned by Martin Seeker & Warburg to write a biography of Alma Mahler, wife first of Gustav Mahler, then of Walter Gropius and finally of Franz Werfel. If any of your readers have memories of this lady, or of her circle, I should be most grateful if they would communicate with me at the address below. All written records would be handled with the greatest care and returned promptly, and all personal reminiscences treated with discre tion.
