I treasure this photo. Ima gave it to Lee when she was in her 90s, and began to call herself “Imogene.” Lee, who helped me with my early Ima research, loaned it to me to reproduce. I’ve used it in my two Hogg books.
“To Lee Pryor
From Imogene with love”
Ima and Lee were great friends, travelling and attending concerts and plays together. He had planned to meet her in London for a round of theater-going in the summer of 1975. Instead, he met her in the hospital, where she was awaiting surgery on her hip. She died a few days later, at age of 93.
Dr. William Lee Pryor died in Houston, July 14, 2015, at age 88.
