The typing portion of the document is nearly done, waiting for the completion of three assignments. If anyone is having difficulties with their assignment please let me know.

I have to say a special thanks to Will Day and Jerry Gilmartin who both did multiple assignments, with Will nudging out top honors with completing a total of nine. I also have to fess-up each consecutive assignment I doled out to Will, unbeknownst to him, I would sneak in a couple more pages. Im sure he noticed it; he just had the kindness not to say anything. It kind of reminded me of the way Abbott would dibby up the loot with Costello; one for me, one for you - then one, two for me, two for you, - then one, two, three for me and three for you, although Costello couldnt catch on why Abbotts pile was so much larger then his, Will was kind enough just to do work, knowing full well I was padding his stash. Thanks Will and Jerry.

The next group assignment I hoping all of you will help with, is locating replacement photos for this document. If I could get everyone to go through their photo stashes and see if they have a replacement copy or a very close/similar replacement. Also if you know the location or have seen any of these in books let me know. Please take a look through the PDF file of the document I recently posted and see what you can come up with. All your help in making this, a top notch document is greatly appreciate.

Thanks to everyone, this document is shaping up to be a nice finished product.
