I met Lao at Swananoa once (summer of 1986) and asked her if Russell had heard of Keely or did Russell have any Keely books in his library. She said she was sure there were no Keely books but felt sure Russell had heard of Keely. In all my reading of WR's works I've not yet seen any clear indication he knew of Keely. Dale Pond
