PostPosted: Jan 22, 2016 17:44    Post subject: Reminiscences of a very old former curator  

This is an article that was requested by the publishers of the Russian journal Mineralogical Almanac, Ludmila Cheshko and Michael Leybov, after John gave a talk on this subject in Tucson 2015 that they attended. It is, of course, a greatly abbreviated version of the talk which included far more photographs and interesting anecdotes, so if you want to hear the talk in full you can go to the Mineral Lectures Series

Mineralogical Almanac kindly allowed us to publish this here as a scoop, you can find the printed version together with many more great articles in the new issue of the Mineralogical Almanac that will be available in Tucson 2016

To see it click on the image below or in this link and you will access to the PDF with all the article

Hi,
Thank you very much. This well-documented story reminds me of my passion for collecting, even before the birth of the Mineralogical Record.
I saw all my gurus ...
Roger.
