I have been a fan of Nat Geo since I was a kid. I remember reading them monthly as a new issue arrived. I also have a signed copy - Eugenie Clark, renowned shark expert, spoke at the Buffalo Museum of Science at the former Hayes Lecture Series. My father and I were regulars. I asked her to autograph a then recent article titled "Sharks, Magnificent and Misunderstood." What kid does that? I still have it.
In fact, my father was probably tickled that I was a goober. He had to be thinking, she won't be a teen pregnancy statistic because she won't even kiss a boy until she's 30.
I have most issues from 1950 to the present and many from 1920-1950. A pretty nice collection and they look wonderful in the living room. They had been at my mother's house. I think she was thrilled to get rid of them.

|I like that they are displayed with other things that mean something to us.|
