He brought to life the stories and personalities of people who, until that point, had been merely names on pages. I recorded our conversation. About an hour in, I forgot to push record on the tape after I flipped it over and so I'm missing about an hour of the conversation. Doh! But I have these great stories, a tape of a lot of them and lots of written notes.

Anyways, about halfway through the conversation, he pauses and says "Well, I can tell you this if you'll keep it to yourself." And I agree, because of course I want to know. And he tells me. And it puts to rest one of my brick walls. I know now. I breathed a sign of relief after that.
