Untitled[edit]

The author lists Mr. Smith under "Cajuns" in the specific categories. What is the evidence that Mr. Smith was "Cajun"? Was his mother of French descent?

The article states that Smith had his notebooks confiscated and that he was thrown out of Germany. On page 352 in The Last Train from Berlin he tells of having requested an exit visa and finally receiving one after Columbia agreed to send a substitute. He very much wanted to leave but had been repeatedly refused the visa until Columbia agreed to the hostage deal which, of course, they never completed.Nriesz (talk) 17:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)


Einstein Connection[edit]

an interesting quote: "Every Sunday at noon he [Einstein] listened to a news analysis broadcast by Howard K. Smith. Guests were never invited at that hour." Per the book, this quote apparently relates to some period in the last decade of Einstein's life (died April 1955). Einstein was living in Princeton, New Jersey at the time.
