I just found something on your site that is of great interest to me.

You mention that, until the 1960's, NASA was still using whale oil for a few things. I am looking for that very type of information and was wondering if you may be able to tell me what your source was for that information.

If you are unable to point me directly to the source, any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

All I could say was that I'd probably heard it from a docent at the Mystic Seaport Museum; if I'd heard any details, I'd since forgotten them. Now I'm all curious. My one consolation: when I admitted my ignorance to Ms. Myers, she replied:

Thanks for your effort. Tell you what, if I find out, I'll let you know.
