Editorial Commentary

'In CANADIANS IN NEW YORK on page 68, Mayfair's Travel Editor, Claire Wallace, talks with various well-known Canadians who now live most of the year in New York. Where they shop, where they dine, what they like to do for relaxation – these are some of the questions answered by personalities like Gisele MacKenzie, Hume Cronyn and his British-born wife, Jessica Tandy, Melissa Hayden, Catherine Proctor and others.

                    IN FUTURE ISSUES: When Claire Wallace took off last month for Greece, Cyprus and Egypt, and Iona Monahan left for Denmark, Spain, Italy, France and England, Mayfair's secretary-in-charge-of-mileage estimated their trips would bring to approximately 32,298 the number of miles travelled by Mayfair staffers in the last eight months, proof that the magazine is living up to its “GOING PLACES!" claim. Results of the latest safaris by the Misses Monahan and Wallace will be appearing soon ...' (About Ourselves. Editorial. Mayfair Sept. 1956: 2)
