Dinosaur Names

     Dad had an enormous desire to find and then name new dinosaurs.  It seemed, from where I stood, that doing that was the epitome of being a paleontologist. Following is a list of  ~10 dinosaur descriptions which he did. Notice that the specie name (the second name) is that of one of his friends or someone he wished to honor. Arnie LEWIS is his long-time friend who got him the job at Harvard, Ottinger is a rock hound in southern Utah who provided dad a great deal of information about potentially good collecting sites.
