from the

Rudy and Bill's clandestine meeting in a Fargo parking lot
where Rudy proudly recalls the many stories embedded in his photo albums
Bill was soon rushing north across the border
toward his ERBzine office scanners with this trove of rare photos.

Gigi Barrett
At this time I was working for Fox television and the guy I ordered movies from for the studio said if
I ever got down to LA he would leave me two guest passes.
Gigi volunteered to go with me for the afternoon since we were special guests and it was free
. . . we took pictures of each other . . . ~ Rudy

Rudy's Notes:
Stan Vinson is standing by my Tarzan sculpture which I no longer have. Seated to the side is Cathy Badger who helped Pete Ogden with ERBANIA and later married Frank Brueckul, assistant editor of the original Burroughs Bulletin with Vern Coriell. I was best man at their wedding in December of 1972 in Fort Lauderdale Florida. 
Frank died in April of 1976 in Tarzana as he worked in the archives of ERB Inc. after he retired in 1972 as an astronomer.
Frank wrote many scientific articles for the Burroughs Bulletin and Gridley Wave and even wrote for the pulps in the 1930s under the name Frank Bridge.
