February 1988 Johnny Appleseed Originally published in Chapman Chatter #19. A nine page detailed article, compiled by CFA Member Gil Alford, covering known information about John Chapman from his birth to death. An old file done with dot-matrix printer and non-proportional font that had to be scanned to pdf thus creating a very large file.
