Begun in 1996, there are now over 340 portraits in this collection, but there are still many Heroes who deserve to be represented and I need your help. The collection is weak (but getting better) in important German, Swiss, and French horologists. Oriental and Arabic Heroes are completely unrepresented, and I am particularly interested in anyone associated with sundials. I prefer raw scans in jpg format - I will crop and size. If you would like to contribute portraits, please send a message to Bob Terwilliger.

Thanks to:
