We are all products of our mentors, elders, parents, and
teachers. Czaplewski is privileged to have known Charles A. Repenning as a
mentor long ago. Like so many other graduate students in vertebrate
paleontology, Rep gave me his time often when I was a greenhorn graduate student
trying to figure out how to practice the discipline. Hopefully he would be proud
of some of the work I've done, especially the papers to which I contributed in
this volume in his honor. Thanks, Rep. I'm trying to follow your example.
Czaplewski is curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Oklahoma Museum of
Natural History, Norman, Oklahoma.
