I'm on the hunt for something and can't think of a better resource than Mensa.
Years ago -- I don't even remember which decade -- the 40s, 50s, or 60s -- I saw a pictorial essay in Life Magazine about a guy who had a bundle of exciting and adventurous life goals and was shown in many poses during his flights, trips, and other experiences in this photo essay. Does anyone out there remember the approximate date of this Life issue or the man's name? I don't even know what to look under in the Guide Periodic Literature

And I say to her, "A fe so just, 'ts U, Josefa."
