Sonia's 85th Birthday

I'm just amazed at the things epegana has collected and is auctioning at the ebayeum.

SONIA GREENE LOVECRAFT'S 85TH BIRTHDAY Color snapshot of Sonia Greene - once H. P. Lovecraft's wife - at her 85th birthday. Verso of snapshot in Sonia's hand reads "Dr. Lucia Liverette, and me applauding". Sonia spent her last years in a rest home in Sunland, California.

I just wanted to thank you for posting all these great Lovecraftian tidbits. I was lucky to have found your blog- quite by accident!

I'm in Cleveland, not far from where Sonia once resided. (Sadly, the apartment building was demolished in the 1960's.)

But one cool thing I'll pass along- that old place, 1912 East 86th St., is only a mere 20 blocks or so from the old Glenville neighborhood, which is where two Jewish high school kids- Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman in 1930.

Lovecraft also wrote a pretty decent poem (a satire on Clevelander Hart Crane's work) about the neighborhood, Euclid Ave.
He loved his short stay here, which is something to be proud of.

Thanks again for you useful site!
