Just me, or could they have been brothers? Maybe REH wanted to look a little dangerous for Novalyne

The story goes, he HATED that hat, but Novalyne loved it, thought he looked dashing in it, so he had a few shots taken with it.

REH is on record as despising Capone, BTW.

He looks better than any pic i have seen of him in Cimmerian site and much smoother,cooler look than the face of Capone.

That link is from my Goodreads member page since i use it as avatar there.

Evil fraternal twin? ;)

Glad to read REH despised the murderer/gangster.

That hat is a city-boy hat. No wonder REH wasn't comfortable in it.

Thanks Duece and Patrice! :D This article is fascinating! I'd like to read the obit. How much more stuff of Robert E. Howard is out there? Great job Patrice! Please keep searching, finding, and sharing.

Richard,
here's the funeral notice (rather than obit). As far as I know, two copies have survived, Glenn Lord's and mine:

Excellent scholarship, ami. A tilt of the mead horn.


timeless
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. - Edgar Allen Poe

It's the olden lure, it's the golden lure, it's the lure of the timeless things. - Robert Service

For the myth is the foundation of life; it is the timeless schema, the pious formula into which life flows when it reproduces its traits out of the unconscious. - Thomas Mann

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. - Norman Maclean
