    20. "Buzz" Fauntleroy sent this picture along with the following note: "I am enclosing a picture which Dr. Fred Bullard took in the summer of 1947 at the Volcano Paricutin in old Mexico. The trip was the climax of the summer field camp held at Brady, Texas. Shown in the picture, from left to right are Charles Butler, one of the smartest graduates of the Gregory School. Charley practiced geology for some six months, then retired to manage his family fortunes; Mr. Fred Ealand, now with the Humble Oil and Refining Co. in New Orleans; Mr. Jim Alphin, deceased; yours truly, Buzz Fauntleroy; Charles Jenkins, now an independently wealthy consultant in Duncan, Oklahoma; Mr. Charles Haydon, then of the music department at North Texas Agricultural College in Arlington and our interpreter for the trip; and some geologist with the USGS whose name I have long since forgotten. You will note if you look closely that those capable of growing moustaches, namely Alphin and Fauntleroy, were doing so to honor the famous "cootie garage" which always adorned our beloved Dr. Bullard's upper lip until that stage in life where he felt like he looked old enough to pass for a professor. My information would indicate that removal of the moustache occurred some two years before his final retirement."

    21. W. A. Maley sent us this picture which was taken in March 1972. It shows his brother, Vaughn C. Maley (on right), and his son, Karl A. Maley (middle) in addition to himself.
