I first met Curtis Anderson
very briefly at my first AAVSO meeting in 1959 when it was held in Chicago. I
met so many notables at that time, and I was brand new in the organiztion, that
I couldn't remember everyone exactly. i do remember that one male member was
extremely tall--6'8"--and later I was to find that this was Curtis, one of
AAVSO's most enthusiastic observers. He was walking upright at that time.
