Hardly.  I just have search engines and the IRTC website (which is still extant,
though non-functional).  For the 1979 image, some time ago I saw the name J.
Turner Whitted, and wrote it down.  For the IRTC image, between Mosen's clever
idea and the horrible job he did on the child's feet, the image was hard to
forget about; I just had to look for it.
