Yes ...my guess was Cal tech's new seismographs....but what about ...shoot couldn't think of anything else.

Bellis said...

Jean's right, I think. It's Charles Richter, who did his seismic measurements in a house near Annandale Golf Course that Caltech sold off a few years ago. There's a great story about his housekeeper.

I think Jean's right, also. But mmmm, maybe a massive mimeograph plant.

Man, you guys gave all the good answers.

Charlie Richter was always showing off his seismographs. It became a real problem. He'd show them to young girls in malls, he'd show them in church on Sundays. It became a real problem.

But alas, Hiker is right. It's wrapper Herbert P. Sloan. He was known as the King of Wrap.

It was either Richter or Sloan. I'm always late.
