A SUNDAY WITH GEORGE McWHORTER
www.ERBzine.com/mag45/4549.html
After the 2013 Louisville Dum-Dum
www.ERBzine.com/mag45/4540.html
For us, the highlight of the 2013 Louisville Burroughs Convention was
the Sunday we spent with the greatest of all ERB fans: George McWhorter.
He has soloed at his church for 40 years
- and we were thrilled to finally have the chance to hear him perform. 
Despite his 80 years, George's voice is still rich and powerful and fully captivates his audience.
Later we dined and drove around the city, and ended our visit at his apartment.

THE BURROUGHS BIBLIOPHILES AND BULLETIN LEGACY
Over the years George devoted a tremendous amount of time and personal resources to the publishing of a new series of quarterly Burroughs Bulletins as well as the monthly newsletter: The Gridley Wave. George gave ERBzine permission to release electronic versions of all his Gridley Waves and to reprint all these zines back to Issue No. 1. George's Burroughs Bulletin was a gorgeous slick magazine with each issue devoted to an ERB title. 

After reaching the end of Burroughs titles the BB Board of Directors decided that perhaps the daunting task of publishing these magazines and newsletters on such a regular basis should be turned over to a younger man. The job was taken over by Henry Franke. 

Leaving this labour of love that he had invested so many thousands of dollars and man-hours over decades was very difficult, but he prided himself in the quality and regularity of these hundreds of publications which had brought countless ERB devotees to the fold.
