Channel : Bibliography

The author has a semi-photographic memory and, believe it or not, has told the DuMont tale so often that he initially composed this Web site from memory without consulting his reference materials. However, many sources have been paraphrased in telling the DuMont story. Here are a few which will piece the story together for interested readers.
