The Denver Post published a nice piece by John Wenzel about Colin Cantwell last week, going over his contributions to Star Wars: A New Hope and other accomplishments. You can check it out on their official website: “He kept his Star Wars legacy a secret in Boulder for decades. At 85, the sci-fi pioneer is ready to step out.“
I participated in this story, based on my experience in helping Mr. Cantwell bring his memorabilia to auction with Julien’s Auctions back in 2015:
