    What a jolly, elegant couple! They must have been stars of cultural New York for a time. . . . I love her costume--simply beautiful! I see she was the official expedition photographer on his exploring trip to Central Asia, in 1921. I see from the Wikipedia on him that he divorced her in 1930. Remarried in 1935. -- Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
