Subject: [multimachine] Mr. Yeomans
I was contacted by the granddaughter of L.I. Yeomans's personal
secretary. I am very grateful that she took the time to let me know that
her mother (now 80) was pleased that Mr. Yeomans has gained some
notoriety. Her Mom remembers him well and fondly. She gave me lots of
information that I can use to correct and expand the original article I
wrote -- when I can find the time and gumption all at once.
I thought this would amuse some of you. I have no doubt that L.I.
Yeomans was a genius. He was more accomplished at age 19 than I have
managed in a lifetime. Here is a bit of information that reinforces my
opinion of him;
"... he had difficulty finding draftsmen because all the new graduates
used slide rules and he wanted someone who could do the calculations in
his head like he did."
That was passed down from mother to daughter to daughter to us.
