A note from Richard Guy

Last week, we received a note from long-time attendee Richard Guy. Richard was the long-time maintainer of the West Coast Number Theory problem sets (which eventually turned into his classic book: Unsolved Problems in Number Theory):

Please pass this to all the participants in the West Coast Number Theory Conference. I am sorry that the passage of years has rendered it infeasible to come and join you. Happy memories going back 50 years. The Lehmers, the Robinsons, the Todds, John Selfridge and John Brillhart.
I hope that John B. is still flourishing and will be able to join you. And Gerry Myerson, who took over the problems section from me many years ago. Best to all! Richard.
