Sept. 10 - Dr. Richard Hulbert, Collection Manager, Vertebrate Paleontology Florida Museum of Natural History
Looking Back & Ahead: 40+ Years as a Florida Paleontologist

Dr. Richard Hulbert will retire from his position as vertebrate paleontology collections manager at the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) on September 30, 2022. In this, his last talk to TBFC as an employee of the FLMNH, Dr. Hulbert will reflect on his 41-year association with the museum and the major paleo discoveries and technological advances occurring over that period. He will also look ahead to greatly increased time in his “retirement” to conduct research on Florida fossils and discuss his plans for a comprehensive program on the Pleistocene Mammals of Florida that will include extensive collaboration with amateur and hobbyist fossil collectors across the state.

Dr. Richard has been a good friend and liaison for the amateur community in Florida. His trusted relationship with the amateur fossil hunter has probably done more to advance paleontology in Florida than any other initiative. We’ll miss Dr. Richard when he’s retired, but I can only imagine we’ll see him around. There’s lots of research Dr. Richard has had to put off because of other projects at the museum. I’m sure it won’t be long before we start hearing about his future studies on tapir, horses and other Florida mammals.
