"Youth is a circumstance you can't do anything about. The trick is to grow up without getting old." - Frank Lloyd Wright
Robert Sweeney had a close relationship with BBP, who shared some letters that no one else (other than possibly Kathryn Smith) has ever seen.
BBP became a public person late in life. When I first met him, he was incredibly shy, skittish, and would never consider speaking in public. Then, suddenly, he overcame whatever trepidations he had, and became one of the principal voices of Taliesin, especially in Olga's latter days, as she went blind and deaf.
Considering how completely BBP was devoted to the program, I have no trouble believing that he would keep any negative material from going public, perhaps, though not probably, to the extent of destroying evidence.
