The first person to thank is Cindy Davies, who kept this project going simply by asking about it. Next is Tom Hadley who provided names leading to a network of Fred Hunters friends; the third person deserving special thanks is Melissa Moyzis who did a great deal of research.
The following people also helped: Jack Hurt, L.D. Melville, Paul Taylor, Robert Livesey, Claude Hicks, Jess Harta, Arne, Clyde Peters, Jonathan Graham, Debra, Charlie Wilson, Lauren, and everyone who listened to me talk endlessly about this article.
