Thanks, Bob. My knowledge of Richard Pough was very limited. You've given a great recap of the contributions of a 20th century bird conservationist.
Perhaps something like this could become a series of short articles for The Bluebird. 20th century bird conservationists' activities and contributions could be featured in one to four articles a year.
You would be an excellent source for this--you knew several and are well-acquainted with their activities.
