    Hi all--
    Yesterday I met someone truly fascinating to the photo world. I didn't catch his name, but he is a new regular to the lab I work for. He worked for Franke & Heidecke in the 1940's/1950's and specifically worked side by side with Mr. Heidecke. Amongst other things, he built his own medium format stereo camera that is truly a priceless item in the photo world. I am wondering if anyone here writes for any photo magazines or something similar--this is someone that NEEDS to be interviewed and this camera needs to be seen/published. If anyone here can help, please let me know. This is a history that should be recorded while it can still be done.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    It really needs someone with the right level of expertise, perhaps someone from George Eastman House or similar. Maybe Ron/PE can suggest someone.
