DO we know Bix wasn't a prolific letter writer? We don't, not really. Just think, Glenda, just because Evans & Evans contains all the known letters written by Bix, doesn't mean they were anywhere near the total amount of letters Bix sent home. Albert raised a telling question, regarding the absence of much talk about his work, in Bix's letters. Surely he did talk about his music, (Carnegie Hall, anyone?) perhaps he sent letters home, primarily speaking of his music, and over time, they were thrown away, or lost, only the more personal letters being carefully preserved, as to the family, they were more valuable. Okay, maybe he wasn't *prolific,* but it's very likely there were quite a few more letters sent home, than what we have. Family members early on, might have even lent "researchers" letters, in which Bix was talking about his work, thinking the letters would be returned, when they weren't. That's one reason the family began to close themselves off from "researchers," why Phil Evans had to win their trust, because things were being borrowed, and not returned, or even lifted from their homes. Sure, it's only speculation about the letters, but it's fairly plausible. Think of all the people who lent Bridgett Berman photographs, movies, and other material for her Bix documentary, and never saw that material again.
