Ernest Irving Freese must have been a fascinating man, judging from his "autobiography", which appeared in Pencil Points in March, 1930. In 2003, I was able to locate his "lost manuscript", Geometric Transformations, which gave me an opportunity to feature selections from it in my third book, Piano-Hinged Dissections: Time to Fold! But after that, I didn't fold, but instead wrote a fourth book Ernest Irving Freese's Geometric Transformations: the Man, the Manuscript, the Magnificent Dissections!, which reproduced Freese's complete manuscript, interleaved with extensive commentary. All in all, it's been exciting!
