Thanks so much for contacting us. It's wonderful to hear from a former participant in the Program. The collection has proven a rich source of information and fascinating to catalog.

Dear Emily - I worked on the POBSP from June 1965 to July 1966, and again from December 1967 to February 1968. I was a lousy note-taker, however. Your page is a nice tribute to the Pacific Project. Thank you.

I have several hundred 35mm slides from this time, the best of them showing the personnel rather than the birds. SI is welcome to them, if interested.
