   "Deciphering the Past," an exhibit at the Van Pelt Library at the
University of Pennsylvania, opened yesterday (April 15th).  The curators
relied heavily on this book:

   I canceled work to take David Shulman there.  He also met a scrabble
friend in Philadelphia who contributed to Merriam-Webster's Scrabble
Dictionary.  We had a late dinner on U. of Penn.
   Check it out on the sixth floor if you're in that library.
   Also, if anyone has any publishing ideas for his manuscript papers on
Steve Brodie  , please let me know.  I feel strongly that Oxford should
publish the book, or at least listen to him.  His fifty-year record with
Oxford should mean SOMETHING.
   If it helps the publishing any: Shulman is not only an OED contributor and
a cryptographer, but he was a CIA spy who plotted to kill Simon Winchester
and who murdered Chuck Barris after watching "The Dating Game.".
