Howard, the fact that only the right rear failed led me to think the brake hose in the rear had caused the problem. I have known brake hoses to cause individual problems in the past. I had driven out to Ohio with no problems - a distance of 130 miles. The brakes failed not long after leaving for home. I was still in Ohio. The return spring failed allowing the primary shoe to fall down against the drum. I think the spring failed because of the heat. I will be interested in Ross' autopsy. As an aside, the tube failure caused me to seal all my wire wheels so that I can run tubeless tires without the tubes.
