Just doing some math and it seems you and Bob Dylan are close in age. And you both went to U of Minn. Did your paths ever cross back then? Did you ever catch his act at "The Ten o'Clock Scholar"?
Mr. Dylan arrived at the University a year before I did and he left about the time I got there and went to New York to find his fortune. I gravitated to Dinkytown and McCosh's Bookstore and the Scholar, places where he hung out, and I heard stories about him from old folkies who had known him, Maury Bernstein and Jon Pankake and others, but I doubt that our paths crossed. My main path was from Dinkytown to Eddy Hall, where I worked at KUOM, and Vincent Hall, seat of the English Department, and Murphy Hall, where the office of the Ivory Tower was. His path was along Bleecker and McDougal Streets in the Village. And 4th Street, of course.
