From an April 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:

From the September 30, 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:
Eloise Roessler was presented with a fourteen thousand dollar Stradivarius violin by a Countess.
From the October 13, 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:
Eloise Roessler was given the most beautiful Stradivarius violin in the world recently by Countess de Zaruba. It is valued at forty-thousand dollars. The violin has been in the Countess’ family for over two hundred years, and is in perfect condition. It was made in 1723 at the height of Stradivarius’ career. There are very few left in the world today. The violin was left to Countess Zaruba by her husband. The countess met Eloise and learned of the hours she had spent in practice, and that she was devoting her life to the playing of the violin. Therefore she knew that Eloise would appreciate it more than any other in the United States.
Eloise goes to Mills College every summer with her teacher, Eunice Boyd to study with her. Madame Boyd has taught Eloise for ten years now, and is going to take her to New York in June for concerts. Now that the violin belongs to Eloise we want to wish her all the success in the world.
