I have been unsucessful at contacting you at the email address on http://archiver.rootsweb.comhttp://archiver.rootsweb.com.My name is Carol Vaughan and I am the grandaughter of the late Maria Pomeroy Sheard (nee Hungerford) and I live in Perth, Western Australia.
I have recently met a man who is extremely interested in Egyptology and has traveled to Egypt 4 times.Whilst discussing his interest, I was prompted to remember that my Grandmother would often proudly tell me stories of her nephew Bruce Hungerford and have Bruce's record playing, telling me of his expertise on Egypt. I remember she was very fond of him and they used to correspond.I decided to search the net and have been surprised by the volume of information on his life and works and saddened to hear of his untimely death.
I am searching for what I think I remember of a book that my Grandmother, (deceased 1979) used to own.If my memory serves me correctly, the book was about Egypt and Bruce was photographed on the front cover, playing a grand piano, with pyramids in the background. It is possible that I may be remembering the cover of the record.Do you know anything about a book?If so, it would be helpful to know it’s title as I wish to chase down a copy to purchase.
Thank you. Yours truly
