I remember a day in 1956 when the class of 3A went on a nature ramble in the long grass with 'Missing Link'. As in this picture, he
would frequently squat down to examine and show us a biological tidbit. From behind, we would throw long stalks of wild
grass - the kind with a fuzzy end like velcro - which stuck to the back of his woolen pullover. Pretty soon, he was
striding along looking for all the world like a porcupine, while we followed in his wake with much nudging and stifled
laughter. If, in spite of his nickname, Mr. Seldon was aware of what we were up to, he never let on.
