Thanks for the tip about Confidence Men--I'll look for it at the SF Public Library. I always enjoyed Margalit Fox's obituaries in the NY Times and likewise her very interesting book about the decipherment of Linear B. Until I saw Fox's book I had believed Michael Ventris was solely responsible but guess what, and guess why. (Small world note: Alice Kober attended Hunter High School and Hunter College in Manhattan; not too many years later, I attended Hunter College Elementary School https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunter_College_Elementary_School where the late Ron Brown was one of my classmates.)
