About this Item

Octavo. original boards, cloth spine. Illustrated with photographs. The Castles fed the country's growing interest in the new and exotic dances, giving exhibitions for society and organizing dance schools. Vernon became a pilot and flight instructor during World War I. He was killed in a training school airplane accident. For a period thereafter Irene continued dancing, made a number of films, founded a shelter for homeless animals, remarried, had three children, lived the life of a socialite, was an accomplished rider, helped run a wholesale millinery company, taught adolescent dance classes, wrote a fashion column for the Chicago Herald and Examiner and when she died in 1969 had outlived her fourth husband. Irene was buried next to Vernon in New York's Woodlawn Cemetery. [DAB. NAWM]. Bookseller Inventory # 1911
