There was an interesting posting on the Agricultural Biodiversity Weblog yesterday regarding the papers, notebooks and photographs of Prof. Jack Hawkes which got me thinking about the collecting diaries, notebooks and photographs which Erna Bennett must have compiled during her time at FAO. She must have written a large number of trip reports, some of which I know raised a few hairs on the back of her immediate superiors and elsewhere outside FAO. From earlier posts we now know the whereabouts of some of Erna’s personal correspondence. I imagine that her collecting papers and photographs and other related valuable resources must be at FAO somewhere. If anyone knows for sure then do get in touch.
