. . . . . . Subject: Request for photos of Tom Cave




I was very sad to hear of the death of Tom Cave earlier this week. I grew up knowing the names Leslie Peltier, Walter Scott Houston, and Tom Cave, admiring them all for their knowledge and dedication. How sad that they have all passed away.


I've been asked by Astronomy magazine (actually, their website, to write a profile of Tom Cave. Doing some research, I discovered your website and your wonderful profile of Mr. Cave. I was wondering if we might be able to use one or two of the photographs on the website. We will gladly credit your website in return.


Thank you very much for your consideration.


Best regards,
