An Ever-Expanding Web-Guide
Ever wonder where Pynchon got that name "Godolphin"? In July 2001, we received the following email from Ellen Godolphin Bernstein:
Tom Godolphin was my father-in-law. He was on the English faculty at Cornell when Pynchon was a student there. You can read a little about him in an essay by John McPhee called I think A Roomful of Hovings and Other Profiles. He was killed in an automobile accident in the early 1960s.
