Brookie and I worked in the huts at around the same time, 1949-53. By the time I started work at Madison, he had already moved on to the Construction Crew, so we never did actually work together, despite overlapping in time. The result is that I don’t have any good stories about him or about his various (and nefarious) deeds around the mountains. But I would like to add that whenever we met up, I always found him a congenial companion, ready to share a beer or a story or a hike. I never played either chess or cribbage with him, skied with him only once (at Cranmore on an icy day when I found the slope unmanageable but he sailed down it slick as a smelt), and I enjoyed his company whenever we happened to meet up.
Many years later, in fact about ten years ago, I met his granddaughter Dominique when she was working over here in Oxford, and again I enjoyed reminiscing with her about the huts, the hills, and her grandfather. I found her tribute to him very moving.
I know I am late with my comment, but it’s not always easy to keep up. Greetings and cheers to all–Larry Eldredge
