The plans for a Guild teaching slide set sounds very good. The course I am
teaching (with Robert Golder of the Marine Biological Laboratory) is
scheduled for the spring '98 semester, so I have plenty of time to
accumulate slides. Bob and I will be putting many slides of our own work
into the presentation, and we will be happy to donate them afterward.
Neither of us will be at the Annual Meeting in Santa Cruz, but please let
us know what transpires.
