One of my relatives worked with Don Farrell on a project for the Smithsonian Institute in Guam in 1979. They did a species survey of birds and reptiles for the Northern Mariana Islands. Don Farrell was the boat captain for that survey. Don has written many books and articles on the history of Guam and the surrounding Mariana Islands. I think I may have to stop by to meet him in person.
