===1933 to 1938=== "After the restless summer of 1933, I joined the large firm of Fenner, Beane and Ungerleider....Alph Beane was my second cousin." (''F.D.R.'', p 114) This statement startled me so much I spent some time researching this Beane family. Apparently Curtis is a second cousin due to both him and Alpheus Beane descending from Josiah Bean (1793-1841) and his wife Olive Sanborn (1789-1867). This connection still needs a bit more firming up. "I would quit the [Stock Exchange] Floor occasionally to go on long trips about the country visiting the various offices of Fenner, Beane & Ungerleider, with Alph Beane from New York, and Charlie Fenner from New Orleans. Our firm then had over fifty offices. We would leave New York City, stop at Washington, and then head south, visiting many places....Cousin Alph and Charlie were find traveling companions. The later was especially understanding about the constant emotional strain I was under, in trying to be loyal to FDR and his group, and yet aware and critical of much of his experimental political policies, at the time." (''F.D.R.'', p 121) Curtis appears frequently in newspapers around this time — several being brief mentions mostly in relation to an article on Anna or the Roosevelt family, or mentioning some occasional trip or visit he made with his children, especially after the divorce came through. In Jul 1934 he is being called "Curtis Dall of Chicago", and Time Magazine on 21 Jan 1935 reports that the seat held by him was being transferred to Alpheus Beane. But by 1936 he is again "Curtis Dall of New York". Several times it's mentioned that he is visiting Governor Herring of Iowa. There is the barest mention that Curtis is suing ''Time Magazine'' for libel in 1935 or '36 but with no details, but then in 1937 we get the details.
