    I heard an interesting interview on our local public radio station today with Chris Bohialian who has written a novel based on the life of photographer Bob Campbell. The author's web site has a gallery of Campbell's photographs, and a short bio. Campbell grew up in Vermont and worked as a photographer in Greenwich Village in the '60s.

    Here's the website;

    bdial,

    Wow, what a memory rush.

    A good friend of mine was a musician in the Village
    in the 60's. Bob shot the liner photo for his
    first LP.

    I'm going to have to find out what the final disposition
    of his work is.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Why is every guy with the last name of Campbell nicknamed Soupy.

    Every guy with the last name of Smith isn't nicknamed Cough Drop.

    Most Brits called Miller are nick-named "Dusty" unless they are fast runners when they are called "Mick The":D

    Most Whites are "Chalky" especially in London police stories on TV. We are traditionalists in the U.K.

    An old high school chum with that last name had the nick name of Mark the Shark, nobody ever called him by his last name.

    Add a lower-case "L" to the end of the link and it should work (.html instead of .htm).
