Ben Oostdam story # 519
Following is a scanned copy of my 1963 draft paper entitled:

THICKNESSES AND RATES OF GROWTH OF CORALS ON TOP OF THE HISTORIC LAVAFLOW NEAR LA PEROUSE BAY, MAUI

It was a pleasant surprise to be asked for this in May, 1999, 36 years later...
Having to scan it was less pleasant, but I hope it will be of use to John Rooney (jrooney@akule.soest.hawaii.edu) of SOEST, University of Hawaii.


This reminds me of June 1962 when I stepped into office of retired Professor Bramlette at Scripps and asked him for a reprint of his 1926 paper about the bottom sediments of Pago Pago Harbor, Samoa....
(note that this also happened to be 36 years later!
NOTE added in 2009: 36 happened to be my Mother's favorite number, like in
"chew your food 36x", "I told you that 36 times", etc.
)
Professor Bramlette was honored, he said, because this was the first request he had received
and he fortunately had a pile of reprints which he had been about to discard....
