If you will permit me to speak as both an old New England "Yankee" and a (rather envious) non-member of the Hosmer family, I would certainly like to add my very sincere endorsement of Dick as both a highly-respected mentor and a first-class highly-valued friend. I have only had the great personal honor and pleasure of meeting Dick one time, and that was in Springfield, Ohio about six (perhaps seven) years ago when we got together with Al Frasca over lunch to discuss "TRAPDOOR" arms (I can only liken it to my having sat down with George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison to discuss three-phase electrical transmisasion theory). But it was a great personal experience for me and one I shall never forget. I am pretty sure that we all agree that we are all very fortunate to have a true gentleman and great friend of the caliber of Dick Hosmer among us.
