As he appears in the text:

“Anaïs Nin met Hugh Guiler, a young banker and aspiring writer, when she was seventeen. After a few years of courtship and to the dismay of Hugh’s parents, they married in 1923. Disinherited, Hugh set aside his creative life and financed their lives with his job in banking. In the ’40s, however, he reinvented himself as Ian Hugo, making experimental films starring Anaïs and scored by the Barrons.”
