What Happened to Austin Brown?

July 07, 2016 Cliveden House

by Sallie Bingham

I always notice when it is difficult to find a photograph of a woman in our era, when cameras are everywhere. The absence of an image of Doris Duke at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, first alerted me to begin to search for her story. Her male relatives are amply presented there in oil portraits and busts, but not Doris, herself a generous supporter. I’ve noticed the same absence of an image in the case of my first cousin, Austin Caperton Brown, who died on the railroad track at Princeton, New Jersey on May 8th, 1954. Her obituary calls her death a suicide.

Radical Feminists, Angry Indians and Illegal Mexicans

June 20, 2016

by Sallie Bingham

It seems that a certain tourist from Pennsylvania was offended by what he viewed here in Northern New Mexico as people whose appearance, background, ethnicity and political opinions are unacceptable to him. He wrote a letter to the editor to our state’s two largest newspapers, denouncing these people and warning that they are injuring the tourist industry.

He blamed quite a large group, both here in Santa Fe, in the country as a whole (where Hispanics now make up the largest minority), and in the world.
