A couple of decades ago I met a Founding Father of Rubik's-Cube Culture in the USA. A few days later I posted my notes on the visit to the "Cube-Lovers" list on USENET. Lest we forget, slightly edited, those notes:

So what has happened in the 20+ years since that memorable visit? I haven't heard from Bela --- but given the flood of cheap imported cubes which hit the market in the early 1980's, I fear that the odds are not good that he made enough money to pay back his second mortgage ... nor to reimburse his family members for their work. Too bad; Mr. Szalai was a kind and thoughtful gentleman. (See ^zhurnal RubikCubism1 (16 March 2001))
