Historical Persons

The following table is a preliminary list of  historical persons referenced in the Archive, that are well-known enough to have a Wikipedia article or an archive  to their credit. These persons are referenced  either  in  Photos, Letters, the Diaries,the Guestbooks, the book collection or the Fontaine art collection. The entire collection of  letters  spanning 1935-1975, however, has not been  indexed, so one cannot claim this index to be complete.  The table is sorted by last name, but you may click on any header to change the sort order or use the “search box” to search the text. To find out where specifically these persons are referenced please see the individual indexes to photos, guestbooks, diaries and letters or email information@fontaine.org for a thorough search in the Archive’s database.
