It's night. Cool, some showers.
I'm very slow at getting these posted, but here are some photos from the small party held in honor of P. Fred Kluge. Fred is a writer and professor at Kenyon College (Ohio). His connection with Micronesia goes back to the Trust Territory days. Party was at the residence of Jim and Florence Kirby.
Fred is a journalist and novelist, but my favorite piece of his writing is the non-fiction book, EDGE OF PARADISE, about Micronesia and the movers and shakers in the days of the break-up of the old Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.
At one point, Jim brought out his copy of EDGE OF PARADISE, a first or early edition that has been badly eaten by termites. Jim hangs on to this because it is unique--on his travels through the old TTPI, he sought out all of the people mentioned in the book, and has signatures from them in it.
