  • Description

    Mr. Clifford Irving - the author of the controversial but as yet unpublished biography of recluse millionaire Howard Hughes - is now in New York.

    On Friday (28 Jan) he was interviewed by officials at the Manhattan District Attorney's office - which is checking on whether any fraud is involved in the book.

    The authenticity of the biography has been challenged by Howard Hughes in a sworn statement, and in a much-publicised telephone news conference.

    Surprise development of the week was the news that the "mystery blonde" who deposited cheques from the publishers of the biography into a Swiss bank account was the author's wife, Mrs. Edith Irving.

    She opened the account in the of "H.R. HUGHES" and it was this account which Mr. Irving's new lawyer, Mr. Nessen, was questioned about when he and Mr. Irving left the District Attorney's office.
