enjoying hot beers in mexico
this is dr. thompson (l) and lloyd findley(r) in a shot from may of 1974. both of these men played an all to short but important role in my early life at the university of arizona. dr. thompson was a professor of biology and marine sciences and lloyd was a phd student and his assistant. dr. thompson finished his career in tucson and was considered the world expert in the gulf of california fauna. lloyd became the curator of the monterey bay aquarium in monterey, california for a while, then i lost track of him. we had good times drinking hot beers and collecting fish and doing a lot of research all through the gulf area.
