    Greetings all,
    Came across this two-part article today, and found it a most interesting read.  I've run across Draeger's name many times over the years, but shamefully knew very little about the man.  This article fills in lots of blanks - hope others enjoy (and would love to hear any more tidbits from anyone who knows more...)
