should have some drawings before his next application) Was accepted
only for the night school. Drawing & more drawing. He was

LB was personally driven via Jeep
by his "army buddies" to the discharge center and he
then flew directly into Chicago's Midway Airport on a Capitol
airlines Rolls-Royce propjet.
LB was transfered to Ft Monmouth,
New Jersey (Red Bank) as radio technician; thrown out because
of illegal FM radio broadcasting from his barracks to the building
blocks in an adjacent quadrangle; transferred to Ft Belvoir,
Virginia and where he commenced a very rewarding experience and
challenge called Operation
BAFOXE (basin) (DewLine
radar installations above the arctic circle in the Baffin
Islands). He travelled aboard this LSD 6 USS Lindenwald, stopped
in and later passed by Nova Scotia and sailed northward on the
atlantic ocean- as the icebergs headed southward. This Landing
Ship Drydock was rescued from a 2' ice pack, proceeded
on through additonal southbound ice floes and eventually put
down the anchor in Repulse Bay. ((Called an LSD because
the rear could be lowered below the water line to offload smaller
boats. These craft were used to ferry supplies, people and food
between the mother ship and shore.))--Photograph of L.B. on Foxe

Entered AUS via
Ft Leonardwood, Missouri
RCMP extradited LB to Illinois for induction into the
Cont. w/CBC TransCanada Network via
Outside Broadcast Trainee for the

Bloomington, Illinois radio play (written, acted & produced
by LB ) Thalia Tarrant's
U-High Senior History Class broadcast of "This Heritage
of Freedom," was aired the summer of 1950 over WJBC, Bloomington,
Illinois USA. The University High School students included Narrator
Jessica Means, Sound effects from Lou Ann Unzinger, Zelvin Mitchell,
Charles Kolar, Mike Mihalski(sp), Art Stoddard and Norm Foster.
Some technical notes:
Leroy Brush checked out from UHIGHs AV Department a (now classic)
Brush Soundmirror BK-401 Recorder and/or Player from which this
recording was encoded onto Scotch paper-backed tape (today a
historic reel-to-reel media). The 3M Co. introduces Scotch No.
100, a black oxide paper tape. Compared to the iron oxide coating
on mylar backed tape, it was not up to the High-Fidelity industry
standards then evolving in the 1950s. http://reel2reeltexas.com/vinBrush401.jpg
There is no family relationship here; however, since I was and
am a sound researcher, this was an historic connection I've always
is hearable here
