Successes: Information “The person on the top right is Mr. P. B. Shekar, former collections specialist at the Bombay Natural History Society and a regular camp member of many expeditions by Dr. Ripley in India. Mr. Shekar would have many a splendid tale to speak of about the Ripley expeditions and someone from the Smithsonian should probably get in touch with him at the BNHS and record the stories.” - Flickr user, email@example.com

Brenda Anderson's post is about my family and Rockcreek is correct about her being an art student. She was an illustrator for a science magazine. please let me know what information, if any that you would like about the Sabin, Goodwin family.” - Linda Goodwin Eisenstadt Flickr user, linstadt
