Indexer Notes

Max Pine was an alias of Frank Moss, per 2006 interview with Frank Borth: "You can find out in reading your things he also uses the word Max Pine as a substitute for him because he didn't want them to think he was writing everything in the place..." http://cuislandora.wrlc.org/islandora/object/cuislandora%3A40849
