RE: Lindy Hop - Thank you Sue, Steve Barbone, Joe Hopkins, Anton Crouch,
Bill Haesler and to all of you who answered my question about the Lindy Hop.

I wonder, if the story that the dancer told a REPORTER (off the top of his
head) that the dance was called The Lindy Hop) why the first print reference
would not have been until 1931 (4 years after the Lindbergh crossing - 3
years after the incident)?

Again thank you,

Ric Giorgi
