[NAFEX] Seeking Kuchta

I received a Hardy Kiwi variety named "Kuchta" from NCGR - Corvallis, and 
would like some history and more information about it.

Does anyone know how I can contact David Kuchta about this?  Apparently he 
had a nursery called Kiwis "R" Us  and has contributed several articles to 
Pomona in the past about Bees and their relationship to Kiwis.  So I'm 
assuming he selected this variety for some good reason and submitted it to 
the NCGR.

Thanks in advance for any leads anyone can provide
