 UK NEW ORLEANS 2004

Following research at TULANE UNIVERSITY jp alessi tulane university and thanks to information supplied by Mr. RAEBURN    I could at last meet EMANUEL PAUL’s daughter, Mrs. WILHEMINA DUPATY-BEAN, who had just celebrated her 80th birthday on APRIL 6th 2004.  I’ve had official approval to publish her father’s web site. WILHEMINA and her husband kindly hosted me at their house for over 2 hours and showed me family papers and professional documents relating to the career of EMANUEL PAUL.  I send them my eternal thanks and I have promised to stay in touch with them as much as possible.  I will keep my word to them.  I took photos and a video of my meeting with WILHEMINA but she asked me not to post them on the site.
