Taken the last day of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Pieter & I stood on the slope & watched the ski jumps, then went to the ice rink. I knew Hans Von Nulte, the photographer, who did Public Relations for Squaw Valley USA. He just died this month in Reno. We had our photo taken with Badwater Bill from the Sparks Nugget afterwards. We had rented our resort to the Russian Ski team but the government made them stay in Squaw Valley. We were still paid anyway, so we had time to attend the Games.
