Phil was wonderful man, a terrific scientist, and a great writer who contributed many superb articles to American Currents.

His name, Cochran is similiar to Corcoran ( Gerald C. ) of the Corcoran Grant NANFA is involved with.

 

Nonetheless the notice you linked us to is very interesting.  I never meet him but Rattlesnake wrangling and Horsehair worms work for me.

 

I will have to look for some of his articles on my AC DVD disk collection.  Any particular recent articles come to mind Chris?
