35mm COLOR SLIDES 1957-1984
This inventory follows the numbering system created by Glynn Isaac. Extra slides that were set aside as “reserves” have been interleaved after the relevant sections or placed at the end of the volumes. The collection was curated by various graduate students and the numbering of the volumes into which the slides were placed is arbitrary (For instance the EAR P volume is out of place). This register reflects the volume numbers, but they are not seen on the folders which are arranged in volume order.
Captions are according to text existing in volumes, except where indicated by [ ]. Missing pages indicate that slides were taken out that were not taken by Glynn (i.e. taken by others and therefore their copyright, or copied from publications for the purposes of teaching. A few teaching series have been kept for the record). Items for which copyright is unknown and/or uncertain are marked by an **.

Volume XIII Peninj Delta, west shore of Lake Natron, Tanzania
In late 1963 Louis Leakey asked Glynn Isaac to join Richard Leakey on the western shores of Lake Natron Tanzania, where Richard had been prospecting for fossils supported by the National Geographic. During the field survey organized by Glynn an Australopithecine mandible was found. Two seasons in 1964 were occupied by excavating the jaw site (KJS) and two Acheulean sites. Glynn returned in 1969 with his UC Berkeley team from Nakuru for a short visit; in 1979 a week was spent prospecting for a joint expedition with a French team led by Maurice Taieb, resulting in a short and a longer field season in 1981 and 1982 respectively.
