It's easy to say that someone knew a person after that person was dead 2 years. Then add an incident 30 years before that and then who's going to check. Especially if was as far back in 1928. We would need datse on the marathon and when HH was there to clear this up.
If you're going to tell a story, wouldn't it better to have Houdini as your compettion or Bjorn the farmer? IMHO
As for research, when your book comes out next month, HOUDINI - The Key, I KNOW it will be researched. I'm glad I have mine ordered so I don't miss out like many others did on your first limited edition Houdini set.
