10/10 I made 1 guess that was right. The others I knew without having to read the names, they were so familiar. BTW Around 1974 or 75 I worked part time at Universal Pictures on Park Ave and 57th street. I was a clerk typist and one day our boss came in and told us that “Kolchak” would be occupying one of the empty offices near our big room. Mainly he told us not to bother Mr McGavin. But he was very friendly to all my fellow coworkers. He was there for 3-4 months. We had a lot of famous visitors in that office. Good times when I was in high school.
