Though in spite of Frank's young age, it was clear Glen had found his first mentor - well-seasoned, good-hearted, clear-headed.and sharp as a tack.

in 1947) where he received instruction from Dr. Jung, Mrs. Jung,

a small handful of North Americans who have received such extensive
professional mentoring from Dr. Johnson.
