The Inquiry Arising From
the Norsigian Negatives

                Events do not generally take place randomly.  If you step back you can see the logic which connects events and for our Inquiry that is exactly what we did, as you will see.  
                    Rick Norsigian purchased a box of old glass negatives and other photographic paraphernalia.  He puzzled over who might have taken the images and then lit on Ansel Adams as a strong possibility.  But he was coming into the middle of a longer story, which he ignored, focuses on the potential for profit if this box of old materials could have been produced by a famous man whose work was highly valued and praised.
