(Commission for Relief In Belgium)
Editor's Note: I've been a semi-pro historian for more than 35 years. In the late 1970s/early 1980s I spent six years of my spare time researching and writing my first history book, Stapleton International Airiport: The First Fifty Years (Pruett Publishing). It was published in 1982. The two other major historical areas that I've focused on are:
Italy Before the War:
1914 Glass Slides
3. CRB List of Delegates -- From
October 1914 until April 1917 (when America entered the war), there were only 170-185 delegates who supervised the distribution of food and clothes in German-occupied Belgium. Because there is no master list that matches names with photos, I've started such a list and hope that others can help me complete it. Click here for the Master List of Delegates. 5. Honor Bound -- An 850-page historical novel that I spent two full time years researching and writing. Click here to read the prologue and opening chapters. 2. CRB Blog -- I've created a blog that chronicles my efforts to re-immerse myself in the 1980s research I did to write Honor Bound. My intention is to create numerous historical articles and ultimately a page-turning history book that's novel-like in style. Click here for the blog. 4. CRB Contacts & Resources -- To facilitate beneficial interactions between people interested in the CRB and/or Herbert Hoover, I've created a page that includes Academic Authors, Research Institutions and Libraries, Researchers for Hire, Relatives of CRB Delegates, and Websites/Videos of Interest.

First Pages of the New Book -- As a teaser, and to give readers an idea of what this creative nonfiction book is all about, I've posted the first few pages. Click here to see them.
