  • 24th Annual Peccary Society Dinner

    September 22, 2016

    In November of 1936, eighty years ago, Ray Alf took a group of Webb students into the Barstow badlands in search of fossils. What was found changed the course of Webb history: the skull of a new species of fossil peccary, a find that inspired Alf to devote his life to the study of paleontology working together with Webb students.
