In Print and a New Home

In 1960 Texaco printed an article about the anaconda in their Spanish language magazine Noticias Texaco which was a monthly journal about employees and activities of the Texas Petroleum Company.  Although I was interviewed and gave the editor some photos of the incident, the Anaconda Story began to take on a new dimension in that publication. 

The tanned snake skin hung on my office wall in Meadville, Pennsylvania, for a number of years.  In 1999 it found a new home.  Larry Woodfork, State Geologist of West Virginia, accepted the skin and many photos for display in the headquarters of the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey at Morgantown.
