Maybe I shouldn't post this yet, but what the hell - I want to see how it looks up there. If anyone wants to delete it go ahead, I have a copy. It's just the beginning. Most facts are in print in Cygnetures (of which I seem to have 3 copies) and will be referenced when I find out how. I also have some letters that may yield tidbits. What is Cygnetures - do I hear. Watch this space ;) I hope to get Grant Stone and Cliff Wind to check this over, and others who were there ... And naturally any Wiki-ite (what's the noun then?) can mess with it.
