There are a number of slides of “Bernard” Paul. I’ve seen his name written as Bernard, yet in searching Edna Ruth Paul, she had a brother name Berland, and I wonder if this is the same person. Or did she have a friend, partner, husband name Bernard? Berland did marry in 1943 (Maud Davona Paul). Bernard doesn’t wear a wedding ring in the photos. Maybe he was just visiting new york and vacationing together in Florida? Berlin died December 28, 2003 in Illinois. He had worked for the Peavey Company in Illinois, which makes musical instruments and amps.
The only photo I can find of Berland Paul online is the following, and I don’t think they look anything alike. I don’t think they are the same person, but maybe I am missing something… a lot.
