I am submitting this data for new member, Carson W. McNutt III from Idaho. I used to spend annual retreats in Ketchum, not far from Sun Valley, near the final resting place of Ernest Hemingway. Indeed, a beautiful state and suitable for rest.

Apparently, Carson is a cousin to many of us on the list. Welcome to our Society.
