The Chicago School of Watchmaking

I am in the process of posting web editions of the Chicago School of Watchmaking Home Study Course, here:

There's a lot of material, this will take awhile, but there are two lessons available now. Enjoy...

Subject: Chicago School of Watchmaking Lesson Plans

Mr. Sexton,
I am writing in regards to current links on your website displaying entire Lesson Plans of the Chicago School of Watchmaking Home Correspondence Course. The web address is located at http://www.rdrop.com/~jsexton/watches/csw/. As the rightful copyright owner for this publication, I respectfully request that the links to these Lesson Plans be removed from your website. Many years ago, I donated a few sets of the complete course to the National  Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (NAWCC) Library and Research Center. Therefore, anyone interested in studying this course are encouraged to join the NAWCC in order to borrow the material from their lending library program. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Steve Sweazey
