    Reisner had a tomb with iron door prepared in 1940 for Mr. Blanchard's antiquities. The role of Mr. Blanchard is not mentioned, but he is perhaps the antiquities dealer of the same name who was based in Cairo. This is perhaps the same Mr. Blanchard who is mentioned in H. Lyman Story's diary, Jan.-Feb. 1915. Identity confirmed with additiona detail in 2020: Fredrik Hagen and Kim Ryholt, The Antiquities Trade in Egypt 1880–1930. The H.O. Lange Papers (Copenhagen: Specialtrykkeriet Viborg, 2016), esp. pp. 68-70, 160-61, 205-206.
