I always though Ray Eames, of the design team Charles and Ray Eames, was Charles’s brother. No, Ray was his WIFE. The things you learn.
(I found this out at the US Postal Service site, because stamps with Eames designs are coming out.)
(Also, if people would use the proper convention for couples’ names and keep the husband’s name closest to his last name [because his name never changed, while the wife’s did], I would not have made this egregious error. I’m just saying.)
Yes, Ray-Bernice and Charles were good traditional heterosexuals.
I just ASSUMED Ray was a man, and we all ASSUMING things makes…
a confusing blog post.
So it was a male/female marriage? Not an alternative marriage?
Ok, this was a bad post…
Ray, who I always thought was a MAN, is actually Ray-Bernice, the WIFE of Charles Eames. The design team was husband-and-wife, not brothers.
I’ll try to find a quote for tomorrow. Sigh.
So wait…Ray changed his name?
