at least 6 or 8 years ago "a base" was being manufactured
in rhode island ( i spoke to the factory, and was friends with someone who was allegedly making it )
and at least one person at K- verified it ...
i believed the kodak rep who told me that K had no plans on stopping production
of any traditional photographic paper too when i asked him on the phone about
the closing of the plants in south america ... and then 2 weeks later they announced
the end of kodak b/w paper
i guess i am just gullible ...
