Eugene, Oregon

Start topics here about Dune that are not bloody likely to be screwed with by me.

Eugene, Oregon

Does anyone live near here? I'm planning a trip to Eugene shortly to raid the Lurton Blassingame papers at the University library there. I have no date yet, but it shouldn't be too long now. According to the archives there is a ton of correspondence between Blassingame and FH. Here's the archive list:

Anyone live nearby want to assist?

It's amazing to me that places preserve stuff like this... it just seems so odd to me. Cool, but odd.
I deleted some of your posts because they were derailing the topic and not focusing on the issues asked, and instead going after the authors or their material. That's why. ~ BM

No, what's odd is the people who don't do it.

I used to know someone who lived in Eugene, but that was a long time ago.
