               JENSEN, JAMES A. James A. Jensen is a US paleontologist from Brigham Young University who discovered
                       Supersaurus (1972) and Ultrasauros (1979). He named Cathetosaurus (1988), Dystylosaurus (1985),
                       the family Torvosauridae (1985), and Torvosaurus (with P.M. Galton, 1979).

19.  http://www.nmnh.si.edu/naa/guide/_k.htm   This refers to an intense visit dad made to Mr. Kozak on the second expedition to Argentina, after which he wrote a report for the LDS church who had given him to assignment of evaluating this collection to see whether he thought the LDS church should purchase it or not.  I believe he recommended purchasing it but the administration thought otherwise.

    Kozak was trained as a mechanical engineer and artist in Czechoslovakia. In 1923, he immigrated to Brazil, where he found work as an engineer. Painting and sculpting, however, increasingly became his occupation, particularly during the 1940s and 1950s, and he found his subjects among the Indians of Brazil. He also became a still photographer, film maker, and a collector of Indian artifacts. The collection includes a watercolor showing body painting, probably that of the Xingú. James A. Jensen, of the Earth Science Museum at Brigham Young University, acquired it and made slides of other paintings by Kozak and his artifactual collection. Much of the material is now in the Glenbow Institute of Calgary. The lot includes material relating to the Boboro, Carajá, Heta (Xeta), Gaviao (Hawk), Kuben-Kran Ken (Kaiapo), Savante, Timbira, Urubú (Ka-apor), Waauri, Waura, and Xingú. Also included is a poster of the Nez Perce Chief Joseph donated by Jensen but unrelated to Kozak's art.

           This is the salient extract from Brian Curtice’s email to the list:

        While trapped under the evil of finals I have been thus far a  passive bystander over the debate of the fossils. I would like to say that James A. Jensen ("Dinosaur Jim") had a working relationship with most "rockhounds" in Utah and Colorado (2 prime Jurassic {is there a better time period?) havens).  Jim was able to collect an extraordinary amount of material (very much wonderful indeed, especially for sauropod fans out there!) by having a pretty simple plan. When fossils were discovered he would reward the finder with a cast of a beautiful _Allosaurus_ skull.  To these folks the casts were far superior to the real bone (lighter, more durable, prettier when painted), which endeared them to Jim's heart. Granted this strategy will clearly not work with everyone, but as far as many of the western institutions go that kind of give and take relationship still exists. Jim went on to name at least 4 of his dinosaurs after their discoverers, further ingratiating himself with the amateur and commercial community. But the world has clearly changed since those happier years, for now academic paleo folks have to go through an unbelievable amount of hassle just to obtain a permit to collect.  It is unknowably frustrating to have a perfect locality but can't touch it with more than a pocket knife blade until the necessary gears of beaurocracy grind forward. In that time many things can happen to the bones.
