These directories mostly contain material that I don't want to
be indexed by webcrawlers.

#### I found this interesting

When I asked Google for a picture of Kronrod, I got various wrong
Kronrods and some non-Krodrods. I lifted this one from
Brudno's translation of the short biography by Landis and Yaglom , published by the Department of Scientific Computing and
Computational Mathematics at Stanford.
