Modesty may compel Bob O'Hara, but I am under no such constraint.  I have found
two of his publications (1988, Homage to Clio, or, toward an historical philo-
sophy for evolutionary biology.  Systematic Biology 37:142-145; 1992, Telling
the tree: narrative representation and the study of evolutionary history.
Biology & Philosophy 7:135-160.) _exceedingly_ helpful in my studies of the
systematics and evolution of land snails.  They have helped me form a critical
perspective on much of what is circulating today under the label "evolutionary
biology."  Thanks, Bob!
