Re: Fabric Structures

Never had it - Never will.  Along with one of the finest minds and deepest
understandings of structural mechanics I have ever had the privilege to
know, is an equally deep willed refusal to join the computer age.

If you want to speak to Dr. Botwin, you will have to call.  You might try to
e-mail the Cal-Poly office of the Architectural Engineering Department, they
have a web-site, but I don't know it right off hand,  and ask Kay if she
will print-out your request and drop it in his box, but god help you if he
thinks you're trying to sneak in some computer based communication. :-)

P.S. Please give him my regards
