WOW! These 2 posts are from 2004 and were pretty much a dead-on prediction!

Finally read the Princeton stories and must say I really enjoyed them! You captured the flavour and tone of the "Chronicles" accurately
which made it natural to visualize the shenanigans of a young, Corey Carrier running around 1905 Princeton. The stories are well executed
imaginings of what-might-have-been with the 2nd part being my favourite of the pair. Your research and familiarity with the series delivers
the necessary, atmospheric detail and the Old Indy bookends were a perfect touch. Any more in store?
Hats off to you, Junior Jones!

Well, besides Paul, there was Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland.

Here's my take. (Some images are from Curse of the Jackal, "bon voyage" shots, deleted on DVD):

The bespectacled, Darwood Kaye:

Henry Jr.'s chubby pal, Eugene:

Billie. Paul Robeson's neighbour (who, I suspect, was probably the kid supposed to be Paul, himself.):

George (name inspired by Lucas?):

Carl (inspired by director, Carl Schultz?) who seems to be the the new owner of Henry Jr.'s Dog:
