Why

Simple intuitive design. Ability of the site to address those who knew him or remember the subject, John Lindsay, as well as well as to entice by the content and by the visual desin those who had never heard of him before encountering this site. Small site offering a great deal of interesting content without being didactic or having the actual site design get in your way.  Color palette maximizes the largely black and white content.
