Hartley: riding white rhino

Author: Carr Hartley
Year: 1949
Description: William D. (Bill) Snyder came to Africa as part of the Gatti expedition to the Mountains of the Moon, 1947-1948. Snyder left the team in March 1948 and found another job as sound technican with Arch Oboler.<br>Snyder and Oboler visited the compound of Carr Hartley in Rumuruti, Kenya in the summer of 1948. Afterwards Hartley gave some pictures to Snyder.<br>Hartley went to Sudan to capture specimens of the white rhino in that country, which were later delivered to Antwerp and Hanover Zoos. It is likely that this occurred in 1949, and the photos must date from around that time.<br>The scans of the photos were provided by Wino Paas of Holland in 2012.
