I'm posting this for a colleague; please respond to him, not me.

Hi,

We were cleaning out some old botany labs, and found a collection of 
several hundred glass lantern slides (8x10 cm) that probably belonged to 
Charles Chamberlain, an authority on cycads.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Joseph_Chamberlain

Most of the collection appears to be a set of teaching slides for 
general botany and local flora, but some are of cycads and Weltwischia 
in the field, and I think one may be an image of Chamberlain.  Most are 
black and white, but some are color; dates range from 1910 or so to 1920's

Would you be interested in these?

Best,
Mark
