Right now, only(!) eight have been uploaded, but Strom assures us that more will be forthcoming. I've seen some of these photographs in person, and I'm really excited that Patrice has taken the time to bring them online. For now, here are some awesome pictures of Howard's youth in greater clarity than has ever been seen on the internet:

That is amazing. I was only just lamenting (to myself, of course, because no one in my house listens to me when I go on about this) the fact that there was no one place to find high resolution scans of Howard. Then this shows up.ReplyDelete
