1) Professor Ernst Heinrich Ehlers, 1835-1925
I am looking for a published photo of Ehlers (true photo, painting,
caricature, whatever). I'd most appreciate any suggestions as to a source,
or an offer to supply the picture. Also I'm looking for extra biographical
information. I have found but not yet seen the two cites below (the first may
not be available in NZ). I have seen the entry in Hans Hansson's online
Kühn, A. 1926. Ernst Ehlers. Nachrichten der Gesellschaft der
Wissenschaften zu Göttingen. Geschäftliche Mitteilungen., 1925-26:1-9.
McIntosh, W. C. 1926. Obituary Notice of Prof. Ernst Ehlers of
Göttingen. Nature, 1926:458-459.
2) Professor Dr Hugo Hermann Schauinsland, Director Bremen Ubersee
Museum, collected in New Zealand 1896-97.
There is a small photo of Schauinsland in the translation of his visit to
Laysan, but it's a bit murky. I'm also looking for further biographical
resources on him, and suggestions for a contact person at the Ubersee
Museum. (S's name is immortalised in the name of the Hawaiian Monk Seal
Monachus schauinslandi, as well as numerous smaller critters.)
Udvardy, M. D. F. 1996. Three months on a coral island (Laysan)
[translation]. Atoll Research bulletin, 432:1-53.
These are rather obscure requests, but I have faith someone will have a
suggestion or two. Thanks.
