Stories of My Life. Eleanor E. Alexander.

Stories of My Life

San Francisco: Judah L. Magnes Museum, 1986. 131p., illustrated with weakly reproduced b&w family snapshots, softbound in 11x8.5 inch buff wraps decorated with an early portrait of author ("With my doll. Berlin, 1918"). Slight edgewear, cover bears a faint sticker shadow, entirely clean within, a very good copy. Eleanor married Paul Alexander; her family's heyday was in postwar Princeton. Paul was shepherded by classicist Werner Jaeger, they dined with notable scientists, frequently saw Einstein on his late-morning walks to his office (Eleanor was just learning to drive, Paul, afraid she'd run down Herr E on the route they both used, begged her not to practice between 10 and 11 am).
