Subject: [Puptcrit] Query regarding Cosmo "Gus" Allegretti

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

 Dear Friends and Colleagues,
  Ms. Christine Klepper, an intern at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History asks the following:

  "The Smithsonian is interested in additional career information on puppeteer Cosmo 'Gus' Allegretti, a famed cast member of the groundbreaking children's show 'Captain Kangaroo.'
  "From our research, we are aware that Mr. Allegretti played a vital role in the art of puppetry's transition to television. However, we are uncertain about his career/whereabouts since his last film 'Author! Author!' in 1982. Would you happen to know any further information about Mr. Allegretti since his final performance?"

  If you might have any insights into this question please feel free to contact me, or Christine herself, at

Thanks for your attention!

John Bell
