For the record:

Howard Salisbury changed my life. Below is an unedited copy of my second letter to him (don't know what happened to the first), before he decided to answer. In it I pour my heart out as a young man searching for self with an idealized wise and holy man in mind, whom I had learned about from Bill Jenks, my then best friend at UC Berkeley. Bill was a grad student at Berkeley, having taken an English BA from Ricks College in Idaho (now BYU Idaho). Howard had been his mentor, chairman of the Fine Arts Department with a legendary reputation for helping gifted students develop their talents.

I remember writing this in fear and trembling.
