Hi Mark,
By the time I got involved in the Community Craft Center in Norris, TN,
Charles was already in Afrika. However, I had the privilege when he came to
visit (twice) to watch his demonstration. He took two of my bears back with
him and gave me some small prints of his students in Nigeria. I do think that
Heddy is still alive. A close friend of his Jean Cole lives in Oak Ridge TN.
She may be listed under Jean and Tom Cole. If you would like I'll get you her
phone number, she studied with him a long time ago. Thanks for the help, I'll
check out Axner for his book.
