    A familiar face?

    It's a slow Friday afternoon, so I decided to browse through our large planning library.

    I stumbled across a book from 1959, with this face on the back. Look like anyone you know?

    Maybe I'm completely off...but seeing what forum this is in, Perhaps Perry Norton?

    The Ageless Perry

    Perry---after all these years, it was so great to meet you and your wife in person a little while back. and the beauty of that photo is that now you don't look any older.
    Must be that desert air in Tucson.

    The picture is of me but from which book or magazine was it taken? Can I get it from one of the threads here?
