Had a quick glance and could be interested, but who is Tyler King?

It's OK; I enjoy it. Nice archival work sprinkled in, but depth of coverage varies. I get the sense Mr. King is an enthusiast first and foremost.

Seems Mr. King is a retired engineer & jazz enthusiast or something, and I enjoyed it.  It reminds me of JazzWax.  His personal recollection on Frank Morgan is most interesting.

Hey Chuck — I see in today’s article that you grew up “on a farm in central Iowa, about 15 miles from Ames”.

I knew it was ‘central’ Iowa before — but which direction from Ames?  What was the closest town?

Asking, because my father-in-law grew up in Stanhope, a tiny town 25 miles NW of Ames (and that never had a population greater than 450).  And he had lots of family in Boone (14 miles due west of Ames).

Anyway, small world!

PS:  If you knew anyone with the last name of ‘Crim’ back then — they were likely related to her dad’s family — he had ten (10!) aunts and uncles growing up, nearly all of them in the immediate area in and around Boone, Stanhope, Stratford, etc…

Straight North of Ames - Story City.

My mother-in-law went to school in Stanhope and her mother lived in Boone.

Didn't know any Crims but did know some Krumms.

My father-in-law’s mother was a schoolteacher in the area (maybe in Stanhope), and her name was Hildegard Bergstrom (before she married, and then became Hildegard Crim).  My wife isn’t 100% sure she taught in Stanhope, but we think that’s pretty likely.

Stanhope only has about 350 people in it now, so it’s super tiny! — and no longer has a school (hasn’t since sometime in the 60’s — Susan’s youngest aunt was in one of the last classes there, before they consolidated).
