the inside story

Dick Wolak was finishing up his thesis in the spring of 1983, when Buckminster Fuller gave a public lecture at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Dick went, and took this program along...afterward he met Fuller, who autographed it as you see above. This was not long before Buckminster Fuller died on 1 July 1983.

Here are the much larger original images of the dedication program:

It should also be noted here that Fuller was familiar with the dome at Pole, and he visited Port Hueneme in the late 1970s (reference article, see comments).
