He and several other family members had at one time been employed as agents and or operators on the Los Angeles Division. After scouring through my collection, I came up with some of interest, including a few he and family had copied. It's always a lot of of fun exchanging emails and learning employment history. Sometimes they can have somequite fascinating tales to tell.
