Gosh, David, I don't think I can. My sister suggested that I look him up and I went to the card catalog and looked him up. The library at MTSC had about five of his books and I read them all. But that was 1954 and I don't remember much, except that he was full of funny stories and a bunch of them included wombats. I couldn't have told you the title of The Rise and Fall of Practically Everybody. Have you tried the card catalog(or whatever they use for one these days)?
