How can I get a list of Art's writings?
I am new here and am not familiar with how this site works. I am interested especially in finding facts about Edna Murray "The Kissing Bandit" and her relatives, and comrads in crime.
Just a post to bring this important lecture back to the fore.
I regret missing then first gathering of Oklahombres since joining the group but circumstances precluded same.
I am presently reading Dr Burton's excellent book and would certainly like to hear him speak but, once again, circumstance dictates that I be elsewhere, By then, I should be in Chama, New Mexico, engaged in some small researches there and points north in southern Colorado. I know the presentation will be most noteworthy.
We still must "gang up" on Welge and get into that Hocker collection. It should be revealing of some aspects of Papa Rennie's law practice Let me know when you'd like to go to OHS to strap him to a chair and withhold nourishment 'til he yields!
