He's a big deal now in history circles but I remember when the Top Secret Writer was just a lowly professor of history. Not distinguished at all.
I met Paul Andrew Hutton at the El Dorado Hotel, Santa Fe, New Mexico, back in 1996. Ed Mell, myself, and our two sons, Carson and Tommy, were in town for the Maynard Dixon Art Show and someone (I can't remember who) said, "You've got to meet this college professor. I think you might hit if off. He is a fan of the Razz Revue." Well, that did it. That this crazy guy would even know WHAT the Razz Revue was blew my mind. And so we met in the dining room of the brand new El Dorado Hotel, off of the plaza, and I wasn't disappointed.
