Closing in on Doris Duke

December 10, 2015 Joey Castro, 1965 (Doris Duke Photograph Collection, David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University)

By Sallie Bingham

I am in the final stages, finally—the final stages, after three and a half years. My editor has completed her work on my biography of Doris Duke and I am now adding essential final touches, hoping for publication next April.

by Sallie Bingham

Now that we are entering—my editor at Farrar Straus and I—the final stages of preparing my biography for publication some time next year, we are beginning to look at photographs from Doris’ archive at the Rubenstein Library at Duke University. I am astonished by the power of images to evoke, even these informal black-and-white snapshots. Here is Doris in Italy in 1944 with a group of young GI’s. She is wearing her regulation working outfit as a reporter for the Associated Press, a tan raincoat, belted, headscarf and dark slack.
