Thelma Todd's Present For Her Nephew

Occasionally you come across references to people being called "nieces" and "nephews" of Thelma Todd. Actually they were cousins, her only brother died while they were still kids.

This little book was a present from Thelma Todd to her cousin Thomas David Wilson. When she signed her name in it, she put "Auntie" in quotation marks because she was not really his aunt.

The rest of it was filled out afterwards by someone else. I would suppose most of the writing is by the mother, but one page states it is to be filled out by a doctor or nurse, so it probably was.
