J. Desmond Clark
The friendship that Bob and Laura
Brain have had with Desmond and Betty goes back half a century,
to the time when they were at the Rhodes-Livingstone Museum in Northern
Rhodesia, as it was then. For us, this has been a really rewarding
experience due to Desmond's unfailing cheerfulness, his enthusiasm
for the science he enjoyed so much, and his constant encouragement,
- qualities shared by Betty. Our lives have been enriched by these.
The photograph we sent, and which
is displayed in the photographic tributes, is of Desmond at the
Swartkrans Cave, South Africa, in July 1979, when he made a detailed
study of the stone artefacts from the early hominid layers there
and when Betty illustrated the tools.
