Karrer: As for the UCLA library, I understand it’s common practice to keep all student dissertations but living in Japan as I do a jaunt across the Pacific is out of the question.
It’s 5478 miles across the Pacific from Tokyo to LA, so if depending on how quickly you can jaunt, at 10 miles per hour, you could arrive in 547.8 hours, or app. 23 days.
Because of Sam’s status as an already published author, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has it published for a wider audience… he’ll probably “mill” it for a number of paper presentations as well, which could end up somewhere on the Internet.
