"Joe Frost is a fourth year student in the School of Pharmacy at the
University of Texas at Austin. If his future career as a pharmacist falls
apart, there is little doubt that his experiences at the non-vertebrate
paleontology lab will help him find a second career in the outdoors. He is an avid backpacker and longs to learn more about geology and any interesting fossils that he may stumble across."
Joe was sponsored by the Texas Natural Science Center budget for the Non-vertebrate Paleonology Lab.
Comment: Joe tackled a wonderful collection of Recent material, a historic shell collection made at the end of the nineteenth century by J.A. Singley and H.G. Askew. The main problem that he found was that the labels in the trays did not match the catalog details...at all! Somewhere the transcription of the old collection had gone awry. We had to go right back to the handwritten books to figure this one out. A real challenge for anyone.
