Re: Books etc on female paleontologists?

Someday you can tell your little daughter that I got my interest in 
dinosaurs at age 5.  A book on same was the first thing I ever took out 
of the library all by myself.  She might be interested to know someday 
that E. D. Cope's little daughter, Julia, was trained in things 
paleontological by her father thoughout her childhood.  His letters to 
her make that clear.  My guess is that he intended her to assist him as 
an adult.  Best wishes for 1995.  Jane Davidson
