The following information comes from a short introductory piece David Burt wrote to his memoir, entitled David Burt: Across The Years, and posted on the internet, here:

Across the years my life has led me through an odyssey of unforgettable happenings. I navigated a large infantry landing craft on five Mediterranean invasions. I played tennis with Katharine Hepburn, competed in the U.S. Tennis National Open, won men’s tournaments in New England, France, and Switzerland, was a college classmate of Jack Kennedy, worked a night shift for the FBI, played Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor on an accordion, wrote advertising to promote national magazines, hammered and braised metal sculpture for solo exhibitions in Manhattan, New England, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Dublin, Ireland, and carried on a conversation (admittedly a brief one) with Albert Einstein.
