Since my blog post on Helen Hagan (1891-1964)—composer, pianist, and AEF entertainer—I was stunned to learn that she lies in an unmarked grave in New Haven’s Evergreen Cemetery. Please consider joining the effort to obtain a marker for her grave that will recognize her achievements, and spread the word.

Update, 3-25-16. The grave marker effort has surpassed its fund-raising goal, reaching a total of $1605. Thanks to all who so generously contributed. A dedication ceremony is envisioned for fall 2016.
