I have the original announcement that was posted to sci.nanotech (I 
think that's where I saw it) but it will take a while to locate. I'm 
converting data formats, consolidating, and indexing.

Meanwhile, I just did a quick poke in Google. I didn't find the 
reference, but I did see a copy of a 1991 report on the suspension of 
Jerry Leaf from Cryonics magazine. Some guy named Max More appears in 
the listed Crew for Transfer Dry Ice to Liquid Nitrogen Cooling. His 
task was listed as "Strong back."
