Roll Tape!

I now understand. The previously discussed audio recording of my father’s description of his professional life is being paid for by the L.S.B. Leakey Foundation (‘LSBLF’) but the actual work is to be performed by the Bancroft Library of the University of California at Berkeley, which has the necessary equipment and experienced personnel.

During a discussion about my father yesterday morning with a friendly LSBLF board member, I stressed the urgency of trying to undertake this task—which I now believe has a chance of succeeding given the [temporary] improvement in my dad’s mood and energy. At dinner last night, my mother told me that she had been contacted by the LSBLF staff person charged with overseeing the recording, late that afternoon.

My turn.
