    I believe Al Tracy used to live in Bellvue, WA, but moved to Lexington, KY some time in the 1990s. Does anyone know why he made this move? Just curious. thx.

    heh, well I don't know the truth to that, never been up there.

    Interestingly enough, he used to have a school here in San Francisco, way back in the early days. I don't know what motivated him to move out from here, but I wandered into the San Francisco main branch of the public library a few years ago and perused the collection of old Yellowpages from the 1960s. Sure enough, I found Tracys old Yellowpages advertisements.

    I believe Mr. Tracy moved to Lexington, because then he would be close traveling distance to all the Tracy's schools.
