Harvard has a "Peabody Museum" on its campus, a name which I _think_
includes the natural history museum as well as some other displays. Sombody
must have looked up "Peabody Museum" and found the one at Harvard but not
the Yale Peabody. Yet another example of the importance of unambiguous
nomenclature. -- Jeff Hecht
