Ernerst Purdum - his work and manuscript
Don't know where to post this, but since this is a place to discuss photographers I thought it would be a good place to start.
I recently discovered a manuscript by Ernest Purdum along with what is left of his estate (well, more like a fat binder with pages typed and hand-written in it separated into topics like cameras, lenses, shutters etc.). From what I understand he was a big-time contributor to this forum and the Large Format Forum and from what it seems was also in the process of writing a book. I don't know if anyone would be interested in it - there's a lot of really cool information, but I have no time or energy to go though it. There are also copious notes on photographers and inventors (A-Z) and a part of a catalog of cameras (N-Z). Any ideas would be appreciated.
On the same note, does anyone know of a link to some of his actual photography? From the looks of his estate (again, what is left of it is probably a shadow of what was originally there) the man really knew his stuff and I'd love to see some of his work.
