    I read something like this recently with all sorts of  info such as the friendly?? rivalry between Weems and Hughes plus lots and lots of other interesting stuff.  The attached is it, but no origin is given.  The article runs from p95 to p119.  I can't remember where I found it, possibly this forum.  In which case I appologise.  For contact go to http://americanhistory.si.edu/profile/532  .  There’s an email address for Deborah Warner.  DaveP
