On the nature of their relationship & creative partnership...
ELAINE SEWELL JONES (Herman Miller public relations, and Eames family friend)
"Well I think they never talked about it as a subject very much that I know of, but there was no doubt about the fact that Charles was always very careful to state that it was a partnership between him and Ray."
". . . you have two persons who are symbiotic working
together, agreeing and disagreeing, trusting each other,
because they had to agree and they had to disagree a lot.
And that was a perfect working relationship."
