Betza says he invented Cassandra in 1970s and Parton lived to 1974. I doubt they met though Betza mentions trips to Europe and chess tournaments he played at Japan.

Another intiguing game from Betza--looks very playable. I predict that it
will be playable with unusual material balance. Say the game is Colorbound
Clobberers vs. Fabulous FIDEs. At the Queen stage, the Clobberers can
threaten a Queen, but the FIDE's can only threaten a Cardinal--but the
FIDEs have gotten to threaten stronger pieces along the way. Similarly,
the FIDEs vs the Amazon Army should work. At any rate I don't think it
will greatly increase problems with unusual material balance.

Of course, this is only a prophecy . . .
