Linking past and present

Each malacologist is part of a network. In this case a known network which is actively maintained (friends and colleagues), and a network – probably more fluent – which is unknown to me: you who read this is among them…

Since I have become more and more interested in the network of malacologists in the past and how this was shaped, I have chosen this topic as theme for my yearly Season’s Greetings card.


Although several faces and handwritings might be familiar to you (if not see here and here for more), my guess is that many of you have little clue. But if you are familiar with some of the history of malacology, you might be able to answer the question “Who is the man whose son can be seen here twice?”… And who is that lady anyway? See here for a little explanation. You might be surprised…
