Mr. K. O. Macpherson of then Radio Station KPFA in Helena, Montana,
typed his questions for an interview with Captain A. H. McCollum.
We assume the interview was recorded for later broadcast on his radio station.
He used a piece of USS Helena stationary which is reproduced here.

What a find if we could locate those radio broadcasts.
