One of the September 14th E-Sylum articles pertained to K.P. Austin of Salisbury, MD, who I knew years ago when he was in his 60's and 70's. K.P. frequently patronized the Lanham, MD coin shows, which were held several times a year. I remember him not as a coin collector, but as a paper money aficionado.
He was always accompanied by a woman, who was probably his personal secretary. Her responsibility was to carry a small black volume that contained a list of K.P.'s paper money holdings. K.P. was known to be very astute about paper, with experience gained long before the currently available references were published. K.P. was considered an 'old timer' 30 years ago.
