|Augsburger, David: Speaker||MC2011/84a,b |
The reel-to-reel tape box is labeled "Augsburger," 1/18/1979.

The speaker talks about multiple binds and double binds.
A second box [MC2011/84b] is labeled "110 ft. more of Augsburger 1-18-79" and it is the same individual. This is rather certainly two tapes by the speaker David Augsburger.
