    Hello Mr. Hill,

    You certainly seem to be the person to ask... I grew up in Oroville in the 1960's. I was 10 years old when I saw Rene Andre's unfortunate crash in 1966 and I was there in 1967 when John Lawson had his crash. I can still remember the incident vividly. I am trying to do a little research on both men and their careers. We have an Oroville group site on Facebook and there are a lot of folks who sorta, kinda remember the men and the events, but time has faded the memories. Can you direct me to any periodicals or media stories that might have covered the events and the men in more detail? I'm now 60 years old myself and I would like to get the real information out there before my time comes. It seems to me in reading a lot of what the locals remember, the truth has gotten lost. I read a short san Jose Mercury News clip about John Lawson, that's about it. I will go back to the Oroville Mercury Register newspaper microfiche to see what they reported. Regards, Mark
