Have no idea if it's a name my husband had been familiar enough with to have retained. And as far as folks "of a certain age" go -- we're at least a decade ahead of you! ;-)

It seems to me that textbooks these days don't seem to have so many of the little historical footnotes that I remember from the texts I used back in the 1970's so I assumed that it'd only be the sort of thing someone of my age or therabouts would come across.

I can usually remember stuff like this no problemo but it seemed the more I tried, the further it got buried. My husband couldn't help.....and he's got the sort of brain that retains random trivia too. I asked martybl on the weight training board and he drew a blank too. I was beginning to think it was a figment of my imagination.

I've really got to do something about those boxes of out of date books, though.
