Prof. Lawrence Bruner, Lincoln, Neb. My Dear Sir: On Jan. 29, 1963, you wrote me at Atchison, Kans., of two of your students who had gone to Central America on a collecting trip, to be gone about two years. You also gave me their address. I wrote to them at once, but received no reply. I am still interested in their expedition, and should be glad to have a few lines from you relative to it. Are they still abroad? With what kind of success have they met? Would it be possible to put me in a way to correspond with them in regard to a bird-student’s trip to that country? I shall be greatly obliged if you will take time to reply. My “Birds of the Rockies” has been reduced to $1.50 postpaid, so that,
if the University has not yet secured a volume, you might feel like doing so now. The publishers are A. C. McClurg & Co., Chicago. I mention this only because you spoke of it in your letter to me. Last summer I had a delightful trip into Ontario, where I had a chance to study many of the migrants in their breeding haunts. My observations are being now published in “Our Animal Friends,” Madison Ave. & 26th St., New York City. I shall be interested in any of your work that you may see fit to call to my notice, as I have known you for many years by reputation. Very cordially yours, Leander S Keyser
