We have a couple signed copies of books about The Americas (Peru, Mexico) by Frances Toor. She was a relative of my mother. Before my parents collected Pueblo Pottery, they were gifted a piece of Peruvian antiquity from the Toors, we presume. I recall noticing the name Toor above our table at the cafe at Palm Springs Museum, in 2010. (Furniture dude; we also had a relative named Irv Olsen in that field, from LA or Beverly Hills). I don’t know if Mom was related to the Toors thru the Hayms or the Bakers/Sukoenigs.
The books live on, for now, on shelves.
The pots will outlast the books.
Much is forgotten. We should have been more like Kunta Kinte, fictional or not.
