The Beal-Maltbie Collection is at the Florida Museum of Natural History,
University of Florida, Gainesville. I personally packed it up and brought
it to Gator Country. Rollins College divested itself of the collection
because it needed the space for other programs. None of it is on exhibit
for various reasons. It is fully computer-cataloged. Rest assured, it is
being well-cared for in the research collection. Contact the curator, Dr.
Fred G. Thompson at email@example.com, if you have any further questions.
