I recently received this e-mail from a reader:
"Thought you'd be interested in the story below about George Spoor's sister, Mary Louise Spoor:
By the way, great work on the Uptown History Blog. It is a tremendous contribution to the community. I check it out several times a week."
George Spoor was a co-founder of Essanay; Mary Louise was his kid sister, and an illustrator. She designed the famous film studio's Indian Head logo.
