This page is locked, if you'd like to comment on it, please email me.  I am having a hard time finding biographical details on her mother.  Some details are repeated many times in various sources, but other details, that one would expect to find, are just missing.  If you have details on her mother, that I do not have, please let me know.

==Evelyn Ella Almond==
Evelyn Ella "Brandy" Almond was born about 1927/8 ("age 41" Aug 1969).  Robert Battle reports that Evelyn was born in the Bronx, [[New York]]. [http://books.google.com/books?id=6J8xDWDqOkEC&pg=RA2-PA184&lpg=RA2-PA184&dq=lucius+foster+almond&source=web&ots=vNtTZJ4xAR&sig=2OuCeSaHWEq9D6ImQVB2h-PBMak Here] the ''International Who's Who of Women'' calls Jodie's mother "Eileen".  An article in ''Rolling Stone'' states that Brandy was "...Born in the Bronx to a strict German family, [and] raised in Rockford, Illinois."  Jodie Foster, in that same article, speaking of her mother states: "She's an only child, and she doesn't like to be around people that much."

A site reader informs me that: "Brandy went to Roosevelt Jr High...her family had something to do with Almond Freightways...she may have gone to Rockford West High School."  Evidently this company is today called "Almond Freight Line" in Rockford, Illinois.
  
 
Sometime before 1952, she moved to the Los Angeles area, where she met Lucius Foster.  [http://www.geocities.com/jodiefosterph/us050800.html This article] states that Lucius "...already had three kids from a previous marriage.  In 1954, he met a pretty young woman named Evelyn "Brandy" Almond at a fencing club and married her impetuously during a trip to Tijuana, Mexico."  They had four children, all born in Los Angeles County, the oldest being Lucinda Courtney Foster born 26 Oct 1954, and the youngest being the actress Jodie Foster.  They divorced, both remarrying other people and then divorcing, in the Los Angeles area.  It has been stated that Brandy was a film producer, although it's also possible that she merely worked for a film producer.  These connections possibly explain how both Buddy and Jodie became child stars.
