    Notes 
    • Aline Barnsdall inherited a very large fortune from her father.  She traveled with her father throughout Europe, where she studied theatre.  She supported many radical causes and was watched by the FBI for 24 years.  Emma Goldman, a radical anarchist, was one of her friends.  She was a feminist (a single mother in an age when that was most unacceptable) and a devotee and producer of experimental theatre.  She was in Chicago in 1913, where a pioneering, avante garde theatre troop shared a building with Frank Lloyd Wright.  She subsequently brought Frank Lloyd Wright, Rudolph Schindler, and Richard Neutra to California to work on the avante garde theatre colony she envisioned and so is considered the mother of modern American architecture.
          Her father died in 1917, leaving his estate to be divided between Aline and her half-sister Frances, who bought out Aline's interest in the Barnsdall Oil Company for $3 million dollars.
          Roy George, a writer and author, agreed to be listed on the birth certificate as the father of Barnsdall's baby girl.  Her daughter, also named Louise Aline Barnsdall, and generally referred to as "Sugartop" was born in Seattle on August 19, 1917.  For his part, Mr. George received a ranch.
