"There's a book written about him called "Skylark: The Life, Lies & Inventions of Harry Atwood" by Howard Mansfield c.1999. I read this book years ago when it first came out and was surprised no mention of it here on the website. A very good read with some mention about Atwood's daughter, I think her name was Margaret, who was born in 1921 and was estranged from her father. Don't know if she's living or not, perhaps some of the other posters do."
