PORTRAIT OF ANTONIO ZARCO AND H. MORGAN SMITH

Antonio Zarco was a Choco elder from Panama. He was on the United States Air Force Tropic Survival School staff in the Canal Zone and worked with American astronauts in part of their training. In 1970, Zarco was at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama assisting with a course on intercultural contact. From there he was brought to Washington by Wilton S. Dillon, director of the Smithsonian Office of Symposia and Seminars. Arrangements were made for him to visit former astronaut Michael Collins, the National Zoological Park, the National Geographic Society, and the National Museum of Natural History. When Zarco found the museum had no Choco artifacts, he donated items he had with him and made an additional donation after his return to Panama.
