Hmmm, as I understood the code, either that should be ... 'last': {} ...
before the first store(), as you seem to be thinking below, or after the 
first store(),

{'middle': {'Larry': ['John Larry Smith'],
  'last':   {'Smith': ['John Larry Smith'],
  'first':  {'John' " ['John Larry Smith']}

or the same with [['John','Larry','Smith']] for each entry (do not 
remember exactly what was stored. Maybe a typo.
