I’ve now posted a slightly enlarged version of my Marginalised Mainstream paper on Evadne Price/ Helen Zenna Smith as a page on this blog.
After writing this paper, and doing some work on the Evadne Price Wikipedia page, I’m left with one big question:
What happened to Henry Dabelstein?
According to the Australian records, Eva Price (before she became Evadne) married Henry Dabelstein, a German-born actor, in Sydney in 1909. She came to England without him, in about 1914, and married Charles Fletcher in 1920, presenting herself as Eva Price, spinster.
Had Henry died? Or had she just decided that he was best forgotten? I wish I could find out.
