Did Eric Sloane really have 6 wives?  Here is the record:

Fredginia LeRouge (marriage c. 1929)

Barbara (Bobbie) Lawrence (marriage c. 1934)

Gina Bertanzel (marriage c. 1953)

Lynn Terry (marriage c. 1955)

Ruth Hinrichs (marriage April 25, 1957)

Miriam (Mimi) Carman (marriage c. 1971).

I often thought that, for a man who wrote much about the benefits of being alone and who clearly painted subject matter that conveyed the loneliness of rural life, Eric Sloane sure didn’t want to be alone for long – matrimonially speaking.
