Hi Folks -
Some of you may remember me from some years ago and I've been in and out of
this community since then.
I've been researching Jim Symon who is mentioned in a book I am writing. I
had the pleasure of meeting him before his trip to Sumatra and David
Attenborough and also put him in better contact with many members of this
community. I also received some of the A. titanum seed he distributed
(which was a total surprise to me!)!
I was trying to find 2 back issue of Aroideana - no. 17 & 19, which feature
an article authored by Jim and information about his untimely dead. I am
having trouble finding web pages with information about how to obtain
Aroideana back issues - do such pages exist? Can anyone provide me with
this information? Or can I obtain photocopies from someone's personal
I would also be interested in other sources of biographical and/or
anecdotal information about this interesting man.
Sources of information will be appropriately acknowledged.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
