Looking at the picture taken on Beverton & Holt (B-H) in 1949
[1], several questions come to my mind. I find the original
picture quite amazing: The old telephone with the cable hanging
from the roof, the 3-D model maquette, papers & pencils and other
details ... an historical picture.

There are a few names printed in the history of fishery science:
Just to name a few pioneers (risking to forget many ...):

    Ricker, B-H, Shepherd, Gulland, Cushing, Rothschild,
    Pitcher-Hart, Paulik ... among others.

In FE, we've had the opportunity to find & read Pitcher & Hart,
for instance. There's a site, somewhere, where Ricker's main
work and picture are shown. However, I ve not not succeded to
find the biographies of the above pioneers any place else.
Hence, I will ask two questions:

(a). Has any one in FE known, personally, any of the pioneers ?
     - Would you like to write a poster to FISH-ECOLOGY on some
       amusing anecdote concerning them ?

(b). Could, any one, please, forward to FISH-ECOLOGY any material
     concerning their biographies ?

Thank you and cheers,


[1]. As shown in the last edition of the book 'On the Dynamics
of Exploited Fish Populations', edited by Tony Pitcher with
foreword by Daniel Pauly, ISBN 0 412 54960 3.
