Dave, if you do find the material and can scan it, I would love to have a copy for GNSI records. I might be able to find it in my stuff, but I might not have it, as I did not take that class.

The artist may have been Jerry Hodge, who sadly passed away a few years ago. I think I have his handouts somewhere; if I can find them, I'll scan and e-mail them to you...
