Please count us in as well, Graham...with scholarship and good will.
The western USC is a wonderful, if younger namesake.  Their president
and I hail from the same small village on the eastern shore of Cyprus.
 A small world indeed, and your great efforts have made the world of
American higher education seem like a smaller...and better...world
too!

Cheers,
Harris

 Dear Mary Anne, Elizabeth, Tom, Harris, Henry, David, Darla, Dulce,
 Eric, Rebecca, Amy, President Kennedy, Michael, Georges,

 Just spent a wonderful weekend in Los Angeles seeing my daughter get
 her BA in  from the OTHER USC - the University of South California.

 During my time there I was able to spend two days with MIchael Tobias,
 the leading environmental writer in the world today, to secure his
 willingness to serve as a co editor of the first text book for the
 study of the illustration of the natural world using art hanging in
 the classrooms, the library, administrative offices and other
 appropriate areas on campus.

 He has also committed to reach out to Paul Ehrlich to serve a co
 editor.  Mr. Ehrlich is the Bing Professor of Population Studies and
 the President of the Center for Conservation Biology at Stanford
 University.  He is also the co author of their recently published book
 "Hope on Earth - A Conversation."  We are also exploring inviting
 Donald Kennedy, President of Stanford from 1980 to 1992.

 I would like to ask you all for essays for this book to be grouped in
 the following categories

 1.  Syllabus that have been written and employed.

 2.  Display parameters and use of signage.

 3.  Cataloging, framing to museum specifications, registration,
 security hangers and taking inventory

 4.  Linnaeus and his influence.

 5.  Classroom assignments, grading papers

 6.  The Arader Collection of 7000 original watercolors - the largest
 collection of natural history watercolors in the world.  It use as a
 template for the woodcuts, engravings, lithographs that were
 published.

 7.  The founders of the this area of study - Blunt, Kastner, Meyers -
 their contributions and influence.

 Please let me know if you would be willing to contribute to this book project.

 Best,

 Graham
