Don Glut, in the Supersaurus entry for Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (1997: p. 868), states that the name "Supersaurus" was first mentioned in the August 1973 issue of Reader's Digest, in an article by J. George. Unfortunately, Glut does not state the page range.Cheers,Steve--On 10 July 2016 at 18:38, Mike Taylor <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Folks,
I always thought Jim Jensen's three (or two, or one) giant sauropods
from the Dry Mesa quarry -- Supersaurus, Ultrasaurus and Dystylosaurus
-- were first informally named in Reader's Digest. And the Dutch
Wikipedia entry seems to confirm this, saying it was in 1973:
But the set of issue covers from 1973 at
doesn't show any article title that looks right.
Does anyone know what the full reference is? Better still, does anyone
have a copy of the article?
