PICTURES - I HOPE:
1970 - A black and white made in Columbia, S.C. - showing he was in excellent physical condition. Please NOTE his stance - this is very important. NOTE: Also that the hair is grey in this poor quality picture. (I believe he may have been jumping in that area under another name.
For what it's worth, Jo, I was jumping at various DZs in the Carolinas during that time period, and I can tell you that he would have really stood out as a "really old guy" at that point--from either photo. Most of the active skydivers were in their 20s, and the typical "old guy" was in their 30s. The POPS eligible jumpers (Parachutists Over Phorty Society) were few and far between ... and tended to be well known by everyone. They were a novelty, if you will, and most had great stories. If he was jumping in that area, at that time, someone's likely to remember him.
Also these are rather large files so if you are on a slow internet connection it may seem the computer froze when it's really downloading the file.
Try this; Right click your mouse on the file name and in the box that pops up left click on "save target as" another file box will pop up (make a note of the file name and which directory it's being saved to) and click ok.
You should then see a box that lets you know the file is actually downloading. If you are on a slow connection, like a modem, and not high speed cable, go make a pot of coffee and clean the bathroom, when you come back it will be done.
If you are on a cable just give it more time. Also at the library there many be some type of blocking software in place.
