Note found with specimen: "Dear Dr. Schultz, Enclosed is a partly burned tooth of the shark which attached Louis Goran, Bermuda 1960 or 1961. It was removed from the jaw by Stan Waterman who over cooked the decayed mess, + given to me. Maybe it will add to the file on this case. Did you even receive the documentation which I sent last fall on 5 more cases? Sincerely R.F. McAllister SOFAR."
One of the teeth is attached to another note: " Tooth was charred + fell out of jaw when Waterman cleaned jaw- tooth arrived at Cornell broken. No mention made as to whether it came from upper or lower jaw- Perry G." The note also states the ID as "Carcharheinus obrcurus. ID by S. Springer". The note also states "from Carlton Ray + Mr. Waterman." Back of note: "tooth, from 9ft shark which attached Louis Goran, of Bermuda, coral beach, for details see case 714 shark attach file."
