Another post from the old site.As you can see from the newspaper article, the expedition was not just about hunting. They also studied and photographed wildlife and captured small animals for the Los Angeles and San Diego zoos.
Enjoyed the pics greatly..... what a hunt that must have been!!! Thank you Mr Ira
Those are very cool pics! Africa is a special place for a hunter. I‘ve been 4 times and can’t wait to get back there someday!
Awesome pics,thanks so much for posting them!
Thanks Ira, great pictures and news stories.
Great history and trip pics. I wonder if Howard ever did Ford commercials ?
Ira, great pics and story; I'm sure it's an adventure to go to Africa today; can't imagine what it must have felt like to plan a trip like that back then.
