Oscar, Look me up when you get here. It would be great to see you and Lynn again. Chuck, I have met Blaine a time or two, but it has been a while.
Well, I do not know too much about the rebel yell connection, but I am glad you started this thread. I never heard of his technical book on distilling, so I looked it up and bought it off of amazon. I love old books on distilling, this looks like a good one.
I'd be interesting if someone could listen to that oral history interview and discover if/how Nancy Farnsley connects Rebel Yell and H.F. Willkie.
