Bob,
        I have not had the opportunity to contact the Arizona Historical
Museum as the article appeared Saturday and their offices are probably
closed. I knew that this question would probably arise from my posting,
and I intend to call them Monday and find out. If anyone else knows, it
would save me the trouble of tracking it down myself.
