PostGene Barakat - I need information

Hi!

I am currently writing a book about my great uncle Gene Barakat. He was a male model and an agent for Ford Modelling in the 60's and I am looking to track down anyone who remembers him or know of people who do. Any information would be appreicated. Thanks so much!

Hi Sam:

As a former employee of The Ford Model Agency I can probablly help you identify some bookers during that time period. email me at speregrin@gmail.com Judy Lane, Rusty, Gail, Sue Charney, Dottie and others are around and might be folks for you to talk to.

Sam: Susan Brainard knew your uncle very well. I will send you a private message on how to contact her. She is also on my friends list on Facebook.

From Susan Brainard:

Hi Well, for the offspring of Gene Barakat, I came up with a name for him: Mike Irving, who was married for 10 years to Veronica Hamel, was Gene's best friend. I wonder what kind of book he's writing!!!

Hi Sam:
I am in contact with Dolores Hawkins and she worked with Gene Baracatt for the May 1962 issue of the French magazine, Jardin des Modes.
Dolores sent me the photos from that photo session and I have posted them into Dolores' album in the "Headsheets" "Dolores Hawkins 60s" album.
I have also posted one of the photos into the "Male Models" album.
