About Ethel Margaret Campbell (Whigham)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Whigham

Birth: Dec. 1, 1912 Death: Jul. 25, 1993

Duchess of Argyll. One of the most photographed and publicized society beauties of her time, she was first married to American stockholder and golfer Charles Sweeny. The couple remained in London during the war, and she assisted her husband in forming the "Eagle" squadrons, manned by American pilots in the period before America entered the war. After their divorce, she married Ian Douglas Campbell, the 11th Duke of Argyll. They were subsequently involved in a sensational divorce case that ran from 1959 to 1963 and which attracted enormous media interest. She published her memoirs, Forget Not, in 1975 and died in St. George's Nursing Home in London. She wished to be buried near Inverary Castle (the Argyll family home), this request was refused; therefore she was buried with her first husband who had died just a few months before.
