Geocache Description:

Early Work 1938


The later work of this artist will be easily recognized by most of you. The early work is not as widely known. Identify the artist, use the title of this cache to determine the value ABCDE, and compute the hide coordinates using the formulas below.

P = C – 2A, Q = 2B – 2D, R = 3C – B, S = 3E – 4D, T = 4A – 2C, U = D – 3C.
Any results that are: (1) Negative, flip to positive (2) Ten or more, use rightmost digit.
The cache is at: N47 41.PQR, W122 19.STU.

Checksum: (A*B*C*D*E) / (A+B+C+D+E) rounded to nearest whole number = 25


Additional Information:

This puzzle is similar to my Prime cache in that the key to solving the puzzle is knowing the physical units involved. But unlike my Prime cache this one is straightforward. There is no misdirection going on here other than the fact I have withheld the units. Knowing the units unlocks the puzzle.

Neither 1 or 5 (or their alternates) are AM.

The artist does have a connection to Jungian psychotherapy, but that connection does not play a role in solving the puzzle.

Alternate Title: 1300 on 77.25
(Latter part was correct when cache was approved but not now)

Tricky Crossword Clue for what title refers to:
Venerable opera broadcast. 14 letters.
Not "Live from the Met", not "Grand Ole Opry."
Five times a week since 1965.
