Dear Paul:

Thank you for this note, and welcome.

I think that your query will not be hopeless.  We have a number of
list-members who have extensive collections, and I think that one or more
should answer you with a solution.

I know that Richard Pine has a quite extensive collection at the Durrell
Library on Corfu.  In addition, James Gifford has gathered together
abundant digital resources.  One of those gentlemen should be able to help.

I am delighted to see that you are a Stephanidophile and a biologist.
(The wonders of Gerry Durrell's legacy.)  Please keep in mind that the
International Lawrence Durrell Society will be hosting a 2016 conference
on Crete.

On Miracle Ground XIX
Rethymnon, Crete | 26-30 June 2016

Given his wartime service and post-war book, Crete seems an apt connection
with your Stephanides interest, and we would welcome Stephanides-related

Again, thanks for writing with your question -- I look forward to hearing
more about your work.
