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."
