Marion's registered mount designs and Roger Vaughan's Marion Date Code

I was saddened last month to learn of the death of Roger Vaughan (1948-2015), whose extensive collection of Victorian and Edwardian photographs enabled him to create a very helpful array of online material. I had been unaware of his career as a geologist until I saw an obituary in The Geological Curator (July 2015, vol. 10, no 3, pp. 143 & 144).A security issue is…See More

Robert
