Conn wrote the article below, published in the Playgirl Advisor
in 1977. It includes coverage of pioneering transman Jude Patton,
and I think him for sharing it with me.

happened to Canary Conn? I've found a reference on one blog
where the writer "had heard" she died around 1984. If you
more information, please
2013, one of my site visitors has reported:
I worked for Canary in late 1983 or early 84 as a stand-by captain
on the "Wanda", a classic 92ft wooden fantail motor yacht
in Ventura Harbor in California. She lived on the boat which was up
for repossession. My job was to move the boat to Santa Cruse Island
in the event someone tried to repossess it, and wait for her to meet
me there if she wasn't on board at the time. She later moved the boat
to Sausalito, California, Where the boat was later repossessed. She
was in good health and good spirits, for a person in her situation
(failed recording studios, and failed restaurant,) I believe the name
of the restaurant was "Canaries" on Spinnaker Drive in Ventura
California. Located on the harbor her boat was in a slip out back.
