He waited 50 years for someone to read his dissertation

Sitting at a conference lunch table, chatting. Gent opposite mentions he wrote a dissertation on an obscure long-gone New York City newspaper. Which one, I asked. "PM, he said". Hey, my father worked for PM before WW II -- I'd like to read it. So now he's looking for it. There were probably 200 people in the room spread out over 25 tables. And there we were at same table, opposite, chatting.
