the Legacy continues…………………….

Welcome to the


Memorial Library

This entire website is a totally“free gratis” venue of my 1971-2009 oceanic marine biology research & outreach science program and is hereby made available for any type of educational or personal use. Originally hosted in Yahoo Groups, the library relocated to its new home in 2013 which now provides the leading-edge technology to carry on with a worldwide legacy. 

Many of the photographs & research materials were educational tools used in my outreach science program “OCEAN TREASURES”. The program spanned 19-years (1988-2008) of displaying unique assembly/classroom presentations involving a combination of an extensive multimedia array and interactive “hands-on” items which included various specially prepared oceanic marine animals and was presented within pre-K to collegiate science curriculum throughout American, Canadian & Australian educational communities.

The memorials pay homage to a trio of gentlemen, each of whom I had the distinct honor of personally meeting during my career. Dr. Michael A. Bigg (“the Father of Killer Whale Research”), Jacques-Yves Cousteau (“the Captain”) and Stephen R. Irwin (“the Crocodile Hunter”) each in their own extraordinary way, truly enhanced the field of marine biological sciences and left their unique trademarks upon my own personal studies.
