We received the following email from a fellow surfer. I am doing a report on the history and how to play the game pool. Can you help me with history and any links to find out the history? Thank you, Mark.
George Fels seems to be a giant pool of billiard knowlege.  Here is his reply.

Anybody interested in real billiard history, should be refered to Mike Shamos and the Billiard Archive in Pittsburgh. Don't forget Victor Stein's Billiard Encyclopedia. And one CERTAINLY ought to visit the Thurston Museum at Clare, in Liverpool, if that's at all convenient.
