Subject:        past events
Did anyone attend a mock trial at Fanueil Hall in Boston last month? The
question of William S.'s identity was to have been debated: William Shakspeare
of Avon, or Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford? Stratfordians favoring plain
William were led by Phillip Cronin, a lawyer, with Louis Marder (former editor
of the Shakespeare Newsletter?) as his expert witness.  Allan van Gestel,
another lawyer, argued the Oxford case, with Charles Vere, Earl of Buford, as
his witness.  Judge Edward F. Harrington presided. Just happened to see an ad
for the event while rummaging through last month's newspaper pile and was
wondering if it was fun (and who won?).
