Bill Newton

Halfway through production of the first Book of Days, say July or August of 1976, it occurred to me that the printer would need to be paid and so I went looking for underwriting, planning to pay back any funds borrowed through sales of the calendar. The banks would not touch the project, not without some sort of security I could not provide. Actually, I only talked to one loan officer, whose name was, appropriately, Hartless. Bill Newton, one of my few friends with a steady job, used his good credit to underwrite the first book. I was delighted, two years later, to see one of his photos selected.
