I just returned home and see that you found the link to sign up for the list.  I have been on it so long that I can't remember how I signed up the first time.  In fact, when I moved in 2008 I had a problem getting back on the list, but finally was able to contact someone at the University to change my email address. 

There was a lot of interesting things that happened to Ezra Pound during his life, so there were many who tried to discredit him and attempt to turn the public against him.  Eustace Mullins, one of Pounds proteges passed away a few months ago, and faced a similar fate with the powers that be. 

I hope you and your friends enjoy discussing EP's life and work on this List.

Dear Michael, 
Thank you for the important tips, 
and dear Reka Mihalka, 
I also appreciate you as you have sent a personal mail to me. 

I will forward them to the younger scholars anxious to be among the list. 

Yours best,
