Isn't Ethelwyn Doolittle the best name??! When I write my novel, she's definitely appearing in it. It'll start by revealing the mystery behind her absence from New York that had all society buzzing with gossip, and young men (and a certain older tycoon) in mourning...

I did a little poking around, and Ethelyn Doolittle was a schoolteacher in NYC who eventually had a scholarship named after her. Her father was also friends with a man named Huntington, who is the namesake of our local library.

schoolteacher by day, undercover detective (who sometimes got too far under) by night... that tree on the left in the postcard? that's where the evidence that could have brought down people in very high places was buried...
