No, I don't know why I thought of this.

I think the Leakey's are an extraordinary family.
Thanks - I feel so much smarter now. Those urls are good for a lot of informational reading material, and I intend to read them.
Have a great weekend.
Pix, I saw Louis speak at the U of Arizona in 1968. He wasn't all that good a speaker, as I recall, but he did convey his excitement about the field very well.
I got four of five. Does that mean I'm some kinda archi-nerd? ;-)
Wulfgar, living where you do, I'd have been a little surprised if you hadn't gotten most of them. ;)
I knew the first three. Actually, I knew Hull as well, but had forgotten. Who hasn't heard of Schliemann?
everytime I throw my toothbrush away, I think of Leakey....
