    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    No, the 500+ NOS backglasses he owns in his back room.
    This does not consider blackline artwork, lithographs, or drawings that are contained in his archives.
    He is is one of several people who have stocked shelves like Steve Engel in the old days.
    Duncan Brown is another person who I am unsure what the disposition is of some of his more rare items, just like Mike Pacak.
    There are more objects of historical documentation importance than just paper.

    Hey, I'm working as fast as I can...

    I have BURIED Jay @ ipdb with scans of things that there are obvious places for on their website, and a good bit of stuff they are going to have to create new places for on their website. Jay is working as fast as he can...

    The ultimate long-term disposition of my portion of the Kordek archives is probably The Museum of Play at The Strong. I know this irks some people because they aren't known pinball collectors ("one of us"), but better there than at any one of the failed collector-run pinball museums of the past, or buried in Sam Harvey's house, or Pacak's leaky warehouse, or still in Kordek's mouse-infested garage, or wherever. The Strong has actual archivists, actual archival storage techniques, etc.

    I know they're bummed that I've only sent them a little stuff so far (mostly the utterly non-pinball non-Williams related stuff that Steve had hoarded over the years) but I think it's absolutely critical that I be the one to triage and organize it first. I'm in the unique position of actually being able to recognize almost everything for what it actually is, and its level of significance, and the ability to contact the actual people involved for further details or clarification or if I don't know what something is I can find someone who does.

    I have 3 tall, wide lateral files for the paper and they're overflowing. I'm still going through all that. I have other non-paper items here, plus a big cache of non-paper stuff stashed at Raw Thrills since Eugene has more spare space than we do here at work, and he's generously allowed us to use a little corner of it. It is my intent to complete this project before I die and someone ELSE has to make sense of MY hoard... I think I can do it.
