Editor’s Note:  In June, 1990, I was invited to go sailing with friends from Encyclopaedia Britannica.  Sophia Lacombe was able to join me on our Lake Michigan outing, together with Tom and Carolyn Goetz.  Tom was the Executive Editor of Encyclopaedia Britannica when the 15th Edition was published in 1974 and his job had bee to proofread all 32,000 pages.
