Hi Robert,

I was able to find pictures of Howard B. Sharp in two other books for class 43-A. One is in CAVU at Goodfellow. See page 53. The other is in Mister at Coleman. See page 41.

Click "Back to View Items" above. Then choose the action "Browse by Class Number" and select "43-A" from the list. That will bring up all the books on class 43-A. Then you can click on the CAVU and Mister books.
