Update: See the overhead image of this house here.
Are you a reader of Cryptomundo living in Texas? In San Antonio or nearby?
I need a bit of archival research in your area. Or maybe an on-site investigation.
I am trying to obtain some overview photographs of Tom Slick’s San Antonio home, designed by architect O’Neil Ford. We are working on a display about it at the museum, and need more complete imagery. (Do not do anything illegal nor trespass. I am looking for public records, first. Thank you!)
If you have any luck or know where I may turn, please email me at lcoleman [@] maine.rr.com (remove brackets to contact me).
Below are the two known published photographs of the house.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
