Warren Thomas was one of the most interesting men I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. He had a photographic memory. He could read a chapter in a book and a week later someone would ask him something about it and he could quote what that book said about that. So he was a virtual encyclopedia of information, especially about wild animals. He was interested in the world’s wildlife from the time he was in high school, and maybe before, I didn’t know him then, but he had read voluminous amounts of information. And he went to veterinary school not to become a veterinarian, but to become a zoo director. And that was his stated purpose. Warren was always impatient when he wanted to do something, he wanted to do it now.
