Paul's son recently contacted me for photos and info about his father. This prompted research into historical documents and photos and one of them is this.

The irony, a memorial issue in a newsletter ending in "croaks"....
I'm not scared of the dark, it's the things IN the dark that make me nervous. :)

Thanks for posting the F.R.O.G. link. Paul, myself, and a handful of others were the founders of the short-lived Mid-Illinois Grotto. I came across some slides of Paul in Crumps Spring Cave a few months ago, and wondered what had become of him. We went on a good number of trips together during my undergrad days at the Univ. of IL. (1967-70). I also remember that Paul gave some great parties that were well attended by cavers, members of the Simian Outing Club, and of course fellow geologists. Thanks for the memories !
