Why would SAD apply to the University of Chicago from Hawaii and/or Mercer Island? Wasn’t Frank Marshall Davis native to Chicago? Wasn’t Saul Alinsky then in his prime at UC? Was Malcolm Little by then Malcolm X? Was he there that summer?

“Why would SAD apply to the University of Chicago from Hawaii and/or Mercer Island?”

I’m not sure - it is definitely an odd choice for SAD to choose Chicago unless she had family ties there.

“Wasn’t Frank Marshall Davis native to Chicago? “

I believe FMD was born south of Wichita in Arkansas, City, Ks (close to where Madeline Payne was born), and moved to Chicago in 1935, before moving to Hawaii in 1948.

“Wasn’t Saul Alinsky then in his prime at UC?”

I’m not sure why that would matter, except that if he lived in Chicago the same time as FMD, then they would have certainly known each other.

“Was Malcolm Little by then Malcolm X? Was he there that summer?”

It looks like Malcolm X lived in either New York or Michigan during his life and stayed faithful to Betty Sanders. Is there evidence that Malcom X was in Chicago in 1959? If not, then Malcolm X could just about be eliminated as Barry’s father. Neil Abercrombie also stated that Ann was no “beach bunny”, so the odds that she would have hooked up with a married Malcolm X are extremely high.
