CatRemarks:
Cataloguer discovered two (2) notecards in Drawers 268 & 269 dated 12 April 2000, stating that Phalanges, 7 Vertebrae, Distal Humerus, Proximal Humerus, and Partial Pectoral Girdle were all On Loan to PAST (Prehistoric Animal Structures). Since that time, PAST appears to have become a new organization called "Palaios", which later dissolved and once more became a new company, now called "PALCOPREP Inc." located in Drumheller, Alberta.
