I have been, as many of you expected, inundated with requests for
catalogs, and we're all scrambling now to respond to everyone as quickly
as possible. Please bear with me. I'm currently reformatting the
catalog into an ascii file in rich text format to send out as an
attachment. Please let me know if your browser has any limitations or
if you require another version (Word 7.0, Wordperfect 6.0).
Many thanks to Mike Jensen for drawing my attention to the 1928
Barrymore Tempest, and to the fact that it is not based on Shakespeare,

Thanks again to you all for your encouragement and for helping me to

academic past, has the potential to grow and contribute substantially to
the discipline which governs my heart.
