When I was writing my stuff on Cichlasoma, I needed a picture/drawing of William Swainson, the person who introduced the name Cichlasoma in 1839. So I asked my good friend Gerard Visser, curator of fishes in the Rotterdam Zoo Blijdorp, and he managed to find a drawing of Swainson in a book on shells (Swainson was a conchologist also). I present it here. But there's a funny twist to this story.......Willem Heijns Thanks for the compliment guys. ;)
Shortly after I received the drawing, Gerard sent me a letter (yes, on paper) and told me he had a confession to make, if only to clear his conscience. He had gotten the drawing from a friend who didn't know I was the one going to use it. So this friend thought he would play a trick on Gerard and altered the drawing to have Swainson look like Gerard, which in fact, turned out quite good. :) When Gerard found out, he hasted to tell me in order to prevent me publishing Swainson's portrait with beard and glasses. He was just in time......
