Notes

First edition, first printing. The heroine of this mystery is a convalescing widow in her late sixties whose adventure takes off as she stows away from her unsympathetic family on a train bound for the New York World's Fair. Random House commissioned Phoebe Atwood Taylor (1909-1976) to write Murder at the New York World's Fair to accompany the much publicized event of the same name which took place in 1939. It is the only novel the author wrote under the pseudonym Freeman Dana (she also wrote as Alice Tilton). Scarce in dust jacket.
