  1. I am the daughter of Inge Hardison, who is very much alive and will celebrate her 100th birthday this coming February. As I have said before, I would like corrections to be made to this article which was sourced for an apparently recent Wikipedia article. Please contact me as soon as possible.

  2. please note, Inge Hardison is alive and well in New York City. Your story notes she ‘was” a sculptor as if she has moved on. I actually met her just last week.

    Thank you.
