Van Dyke

Home of Brown= Home of Van Dyke

Van in a surname meant “of” or “from.”

The original color of this shade of brown oil paint was composed of 90% organic material (think of the contest on Dal’s where you had to use organic material to make art)— soil and peat.

The chemical description of this pigment is described in this screenshot (iron oxide being key):

The color is specifically mentioned in “Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch.”

There is a photo process of the same name, which produces a unique, “gold ochre” hue.

Are there examples of the Van Dyke photo process in TTotC? Yes, I believe so.

The answers are in the captions and photos themselves.

There are also places with that name in the Rockies. It’s not a structure. It’s a process.

Nope, not in my opinion, since the book it’s found in is mentioned in the chapter, “Important Literature.”

No, I’m not just throwing it out there. Van Dyke has been my hoB for a long time.

When you take a course, the syllabus usually has a section titled “Important Literature.” What you have to pay attention to most in the chapter in TTotC with that title is not only the book F mentions by name, but the books he implies, like all of Eric Sloane’s.

That would be required knowledge, as dictated by the “syllabus,” not specialized knowledge.

How does this knowledge, specialized or not, put someone within shooting range of the location? What would open their eyes and possibly understand something major concerning the poem and solve?

There are not many Van Dyke’s in he Rockies, if it refers to a place name.

If it refers to photo processing, then you could go straight to wear the treasure is located in the book. The secret where...

RE: Of Brown
Not saying I don't like this, I think it's very creative.
But I think if Fenn asks us to stay inside the box and we can't use "specialized" knoweldge.....

..then nothing, from what I've seen, has a better or more simplistic solve of HOB than Charlie Brown.

Wow...that just reminded me....

Charlie is my alternate choice for hoB. Especially since all those hidden Snoopys in the Viveash SB, and that VERY interesting spring bearing CB’s name in WY. I might have to look at that place one more time to be sure...

I think it was a spring. I need to check my notes.
