Dr. Buschek's hometown was Linz, Austria. He studied law at Universität Innsbruck, Austria, and lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Caracas, Venezuela, and Mexico City, Mexico, before settling down in Ciudad Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico. His favorite quote was "Did you walk the dog?" (the first words from his wife, Margo, every time she came home).

Libertas (Latin for Liberty) was the Roman goddess and embodiment of liberty. The pileus liberatis was a soft felt cap worn by liberated slaves of Troy and Asia Minor. In late Republican Rome, the pileus was symbolically given to slaves upon manumission, granting them not only their personal liberty, but also freedom as citizens with the right to vote (if male). Following the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C., Brutus and his co-conspirators used the pileus to signify the end of Caesar's dictatorship and a return to a Republican system of government. The pileus was adopted as a popular symbol of freedom during the French Revolution and was also depicted on some U.S. coins. On the Seated Liberty dollar, Liberty raises up a pileus (freedom cap) on a rod (liberty pole). Seated Liberty
