I *thought* that would catch your attention, Steve.  I've never seen him listed as talking, before...so it should be unique.

He is such a mainstay of climbing history of the Sierra.  Not only was he one of the pioneers, he knew all of the greats of his era.

fwiw Ken, I met Glen some twenty years ago at his bookstore(Dawson's) in the Larchmont district of LA.

I knew that there was some history there, as I learned about his bookstore, from you.  Didn't know you had met him, but shouldn't surprise me.
