Was anyone around where he lived aware of his interest in astronomy? His interest was quite compelling.
I spoke to him only once on December 24, 1966 when I called to wish him a merry Christmas. He had an unusual phone number 14-F-121, I believe; it was a co-operative phone network owned by its users. He often complained that he had to go out on some pretty bad weather to repair some wires blown down. In those days, the users were the owners and couldn't just call up Ma Bell to do the repairs!
