Thanks, Tom, for a well researched and written article. I enjoyed it immensely. Somewhere around here I have one of his Circle of Fisherman patches picked up in the late 60s. I was in his shop maybe 6 or 7 times and never heard Ann say "boo". Of course, even if she wanted to, she would have to get a crowbar to force some of her words between Jack's. Thanks again.
