This is like a trip down memory lane! I know we had our hands on some Kugler as early as '70 or '71. I don't know if we were getting it sent directly from Germany or from some other source. CRLoo was the earlist supplier that I can remember. I know there were times when we got a bulk order together with the University students and got straight from the factory. I think I still have a few chunks with those really old labels.
David Hopper was the first person I saw blow glass who knew what he was doing. We were just messing around until then.
I know Harvey had lots of Kugler around his shop and made pick up cups in '79. We certainly knew about fit and expansion before that and did lots of calculations to increase and decrease "LEC". Paul Manners paper was biblical material.
