I am wondering what other relics are preserved at Olcott.
I am sure Olcott himself if he were to resurrect today, IMHO, he would be

Anyone out there with any knowledge. If someone wants to provide tip
offs/info and also retain their anonymity (their livelyhood may be at risk),
can send me e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
