Hello Mitchell,

Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me just now.

When you have a chance, can you verify in your archives that Dr. Henry Heimlich was an IPA Top Ten Speaker for 1980?

I appreciate your willingness to help.

As stated here:

Heimlich's projects are diverse, some are deceptively simple, and many have been controversial. "You're not being original if all your peers agree with what you're doing," he told an Omni interviewer in 1983. Heimlich is theauthor of many scientific and popular articles, and has used television to increase his audience. "I can do more toward saving lives in three minutes ontelevision than I could do all my life in the operating room," he told Omni. Heimlich's television series for children, "Dr. Henry's Emergency Lessons for People," won an Emmy Award in 1980. Also in 1980, Heimlich published Dr. Heimlich's Home Guide to Emergency Medical Situations, and was named as one of the top ten speakers in the country by the International Platform Association. In 1984 he was honored by the Chinese ministry of health for his World War II service.
