#ThrowbackThursday: Dr. George E. Lindsay was director of The Nat from 1956 to 1963. Donning glasses and a pith helmet, he’s featured here with former Curator of Botany Reid Moran standing next to a huge cactus in Baja California. Dr. Lindsay developed his fascination with cacti as a child and spent the rest of his life studying, collecting, and describing cactus species. He took his first trip into Baja California at 16, and made many more collecting trips throughout his lifetime. Lindsay combined his research with work as an administrator at three museums—the San Diego Natural History Museum, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Desert Botanical Garden. we have many books in our library donated by Lindsay with his distinctive red and white bookplate inside the cover. If you collect books and were to design your own bookplate, what iconic image would you feature? .

#ThrowbackThursday: Our scientists out in the field know what it is like to have to deal with transportation issues from time to time, sometimes in remote areas. As this photo from 1933 shows, sometimes you have to apply a bit of muscle to get extricated from an unfortunate situation! This photo is from a trip Laurence Huey and four others were on in the White Mountains of Arizona in June 1933. #TBT #balboapark #thenat
