All good points. All the information I have seen is from Tillett's book. I
think the primary source, Mary Luyens who lived in London recently died. So
we may have dead end as far as gettin further information.
Litigation regarding the K Trusts is very interesting. The Trustees of the
K Trust (who I believe were members of TS) were on the other side of the
litigation and a lot of Trust money were wasted on lawyers however legit
the expenses were. That is another story.
