    I’m doing research for a movie called Freezing People is Easy about Robert Nelson, and early pioneer in the field of cryonics. He froze the first man in 1967. After that he got in over his head and had to jump through some crazy hoops to keep his clients in a frozen state. I’m looking for an episode of the Phil Donahue show from either 1971 or 1973 that featured Robert Nelson, the president of the California Society of Cryonics and Beverly Greenberg (aka Gillian Cummings), associate of the Cryonics Society of New York. Can anyone here point me in the right direction? Thanks!
