Robert Vaughn's Legacy

It is with great joy that I read of Bob Vaughn today. I was working there when Bob decided to print the photos of the atomic attack at the Good Hope School photo lab. When they were available for viewing, I was stunned by what they revealed (the devastation), and I was honored to be among the first to see Bob's historic photos in 35 years. Your article correctly reveals Bob's many talents, but for me, his legacy is his knowledge of West Indian history, dialects, and culture. He is such a gem and his beloved Virgin Islands are so lucky to have him.
