Glad to hear Alice has been found. I can't wait for the article! I look forward to confirmation that Alice indeed was romantically involved with Bix, however, because the switching of names looks a bit fishy to me. I would think Bix would have been proud to show off Alice's true surname and German background if he had known it. And as for the story about Alice's bank account, it seems an odd thing to lie about to one's own family! Maybe her money came from an inheritance?? Has it been confirmed that the Alice O'Connell of Bix's letter and the Alice who was married to Rex Gavitte are the same Alice?
Anyway, thanks, Albert, and thanks to all who worked on this mystery!
