I have known about David Weir's 1957 book 'That Fabulous Captain Waterman,' a gushing fanboy account of the life of Fairfield founder Robert Waterman, for years. It has been out of print for decades and a single copy is all that is available in Solano County Library's entire network. That single copy is, understandably, in the non-circulating Local History section of the Fairfield Civic Center branch. By the way, the library's copy is autographed and evidently belonged to longtime Fairfielder Elayne 'Babe' Serpas Smith.
