The official website dedicated to biographical research on Eva Peron presents photos, articles, memoirs by her friends and Argentine citizens.
The New York Times obituary notes that Eva died on July 27, 1952.
For years, I held on to the uncorrected proofs of the book Life and Death of Eva Peron which was published in 1979. (see photograph at left). I don’t remember how I acquired the uncorrected proofs, probably at one of the many book sales I go to and comb through piles of oddities from reviewers, publishers and disappointed readers. Recently I donated the book to the friends of the local library, so they can use it in a forthcoming book sale. And so the book will make the circuit of used book stores and sales, much like Eva’s corpse has traveled.
I wonder if anyone born after 1995 knows who Evita was? The broadway musical Evita! might help her live on, similar to the way Jesus Christ Superstar helps Jesus.
