Barnum Brown 1898

"Yesterday, about three hours before the Capac was to sail I was notified by Prof. Osborn that arrangements had been made for me to go to South America. Four of the dep. men packed up my kit and I took another with me home to pack up. Imagine getting an outfit together in three hours to go on a seven thousand mile journey, and be gone a year or more. Such is the life of a fossil man." - Barnum Brown
