Michael Ansara interview mentioned by Bob Schieffer on August 4
In discussing the death of Michael Ansara, Bob Schieffer alluded to an interview done by a then-20 year old Schieffer with Michel Ansara and his wife Barbara Eden in Dallas in 1957. Ansara and Eden were married in 1958 and Eden's then tv show was How to Marry a Millionaire. Arguably, she played a dumb blonde.
Schieffer was born in Austin in 1937.
Ansara's Broken Arrow ran 1956-1958. He was born in Syria.
I'm a patent lawyer located in central New Jersey. I have a J.D. from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. from Stanford University, where I studied graphite intercalation compounds at the Center for Materials Research. I worked at Exxon Corporate Research in areas ranging from engine deposits through coal and petroleum to fullerenes. An article that I wrote in The Trademark Reporter, 1994, 84, 379-407 on color trademarks was cited by Supreme Court in Qualitex v. Jacobson, 514 US 159 (1995) and the methodology was adopted
in the Capri case in N.D. Ill. An article that I wrote on DNA profiling was cited by the Colorado Supreme Court (Shreck case) and a Florida appellate court (Brim case). I was interviewed by NHK-TV about the Jan-Hendrik Schon affair.
