Note: This additional webpage (Appendix A) with links has been created to accommodate documents of CPCS Initiative founder Stefan Pasti which are not associated with the mission of The CPCS Initiative (or which do not fit in any other sections).
1. "My Mother's Report Cards"--Two typewritten report cards addressed to my mother’s parents, when my mother (Hilda Hagen then) was 8 years old (in 1937).
2. "A Tribute to my Father"--from Funeral Services (1/4/96) at the National Presbyterian Church (D.C.)
3. “A List (with commentary--from me) of Phraseology Commonly Used by My Father” (4 pages; 1996)
4. "A Collection of Children’s Quotes" [5 pages; from when I visited a day care center (ages 2-5) for one month (probably in 1986]
5. "The Funny Mixed Up Story" (story by Faith McNulty; pictures by Dagmar Wilson) (18 pages; 1959) (Word list which came with the book)--This is a story which I heard read to me when I was young, and which I very much enjoyed. It's about a little boy named Albert, who goes into the woods to listen to the conversation of the bears. There are many blanks in the story-places where the word has been left out--and the book included a page of words which could be cut out and picked from. When I read this story as an adult, to little kids, I would make up my own words... and often when the kids parents heard the story, they would contribute more words.... It's like "Mad Libs", but this is a longer story, which works every time for some great laughs. Great fun.
6. “Exegesis of a prayer from the Navajo Night Chant Ceremony (and more)”--a transcription of a presentation by N. Scott Momaday [11 pages; given at some conference (?) or program, though I don’t know where or when... could have been during a (January, 1973) week long program at Rockford College (Illinois) (John A. Howard, Ph.D., presiding president) devoted to American Indian Culture ]
7. "Photo taken on White Oak Canyon Trail"--in Shenandoah National Park. I may have hiked various parts of the White Oak Canyon Trail as many as fifty times. The original photograph showed darker green in the leaves, but making the green lighter seemed to be right for making the photo into something to put up on an apartment wall. It may not be possible to replicate this photo now--the super large hemlocks which were ever present on the trail were decimated by an insect infestation, and dropped to the ground like bowling pins. I haven't seen how that ecosystem evolved, as my last visit to White Oak Canyon was in the early 1990s, when the infestation was just beginning.
