Yes DC, I am looking for a cut-off of "about" 61 for this calendar. But include any 60s dates, maybe I'll do it again next year and the matching calendar will be later

This one of those things about TC that has always been cool - ask for knowledge you ye shall receive.

Anyone got a good source for one-off printing? The best I have found is Staples. About $20 for color, plastic coil bound, local pickup which is about the same as a photo calendar from Snapfish or Shutterfly (but they won't let you customize the year). I found some places with lower prices but they jack you on shipping and some places give a better price but minimum order is 10 or 100. If you are pricing, I think it comes out to 28 pages (14 pieces of paper) for January 1961-January 1962.

Anyone know when Barney West passed away? What his middle name was? I was looking for his birth date and have a few clues. He was 52 years old in 1971 (per a magazine article) which would make him born about 1919. Find-A-Grave shows a Barney Leroy West born 4/23/1918 and died 4/30/1986 in Maine. He had lived in Sausalito CA but was in the Merchant Marines and traveled extensively, he could have originally been from Maine. I wonder if that's him?

MDM,

No info found on Barney West. The list is looking good. Can you put a hard return space between each month to make it a little easier to review for new listings?
