The Harry Freame Story
I have not brought links to all the columns up in a single post on my New England History blog. I think that it's quite a good yarn. You can follow the whole series through here.

Brilliant series Jim - thank you! Carries my earnest recommend to your other readers as a worthwhile hour spent.
That brief mention of hybrid corn being unable to produce seed for the next season triggered the collander that is my memory these days: a similar issue with rice was, I think, a flashpoint in an Indian film called Basmati Blues - otherwise forgettable except that the token European actress, Brie Larson, later ended up as the female lead in Captain Marvel.
A sidetrack, as always :)
i'm glad that you liked the series, kvd. These series pose an interesting technical challenge. I have a 500 word limit on the columns, each column needs to stand alone to some degree, but still link. I hadn't quite intended this series to be as long as it ended, but even then I was leaving material out.
I never quite know what will fall out out of your collander mind! I hadn't heard of Basmarti Blues. Reading the Wikipedia entry, it doesn't sound as bad as presented! I wouldn't mind seeing it! The hybrid corn one brings in a new possible series about that remarkable man, Don Shand. I have written about him a little, but it is a good yarn.
