Is your name on the list?

Similar to Six Degrees from Kevin Bacon, this is a fun, super non-scientific, and work in progress Six Degrees from Stump the Librarian. (My Bacon number is 3 as I was in USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage with Nicholas Cage, who was in The Cotton Club with Damien Leake, who was in He Said, She Said with Kevin Bacon).

If you, or someone you love, are an amputee or you’ve read, watched, or learned about a fictional or mythical amputee that has been meaningful to you, please email me at asamryfhpl@gmail.com with “Wiki” in the subject heading. Include one name, category (human, animal or fictional), and type of limb loss) and I will add the name to this list.
