A brief history of my 1970s work with Anna Zytkow on TZOs

In 1973, much influenced by Bohdan Paczynski, Anna Zytkow and I embarked on a theoretical study of hypothetical red supergiant stars with neutron-star cores. In this short talk I will recount the history of how this project came to be, some details of how we carried it out as a Polish-American collaboration in the depths of the Cold War, and some details of our TZO models and predictions.
