That experience not only began a lifelong quest for unusual pieces, but it impelled him toward a career in international affairs. Harris has been President of Harris/Ragan Management Group, an international public policy consulting firm - with offices in Los Angeles, Washington, London, and Panama - for the past 23 years. Before joining the firm, Harris served assignments as a U.S. diplomat in Europe, Africa, and Latin America; as an Army intelligence officer, and as a university instructor. His personal collection, consisting of more than 1000 pieces in the collection made from or with ivory, is considered one of the most comprehensive such private collections in the United States., 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 4716, Addiction & Recovery, 282840, Aging, 4696, Alternative Medicine, 4601, Beauty, Grooming, & Style, 282948, Children's Health, 4613, Diets & Weight Loss, 4656, Diseases & Physical Ailments, 4645, Exercise & Fitness, 4667, Men's Health, 4682, Mental Health, 282861, Nutrition, 11119, Psychology & Counseling, 4728, Reference, 465688, Safety & First Aid, 6514340011, Sexual Health, 6511978011, Teen Health, 4672, Women's Health, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 226704, Materials & Material Science, 52184011, Concrete, 13785, Fracture Mechanics, 13771, Metallurgy, 226709, Polymers & Textiles, 52176011, Strength of Materials, 52183011, Testing, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 21, Education & Reference, 11444, Almanacs & Yearbooks, 11448, Atlases & Maps, 2572, Careers, 11626, Catalogs & Directories, 69820, College & University, 11472, Consumer Guides, 11475, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 11713, Encyclopedias, 11823, English as a Second Language, 11761, Etiquette, 11773, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 11880, Genealogy, 5267709011, Graduate School, 11902, Quotations, 5267708011, Schools & Teaching, 5267723011, Studying & Workbooks, 5267710011, Test Preparation, 11871, Trivia & Fun Facts, 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 5267707011, Writing, Research & Publishing Guides, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 226688, Biology, 13524, Cell Biology, 226689, Developmental Biology, 226690, Entomology, 13537, Marine Biology, 172406, Microbiology, 13540, Molecular Biology, 227277, Biostatistics, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 684283011, Reference, 684284011, Atlases, 684285011, Bibliographies & Indexes, 684286011, Dictionaries, 684287011, Encyclopedias, 684288011, Writing Skills, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books

Los Angeles, Calif., USA: Americas Group. Paperback. 0935047042 EXCERPTS FROM THE FASCINATION OF IVORY: "What [is] there about ivory that caused its use in a wide variety of religious, decorative, and functional articles and that impelled the development of so many natural and synthetic substitutes?" "Ivory...has always been in the pantheon of precious materials...coveted for its innate beauty, scarce supply, and special properties. [l]t has been etched into illustrations, carved into jewelry, shaped into decorative designs...sculpted into representations of other things and...used for a number of practical.. .purposes." "Coal-fueled steam energy [created]...rich entrepreneurs. To occupy themselves [they took to]...playing billiards, learning the piano, and eating elaborate meals...all requiring] an enormous amount of ivory." "...from earliest times man recognized that ivory tended to survive after so many other substances had either disintegrated or faded into obscurity." "Why would an ivory container, shaped like a knife box, be made to " house a pewter thimble?" "The real importance of understanding the use of ivory lies in protecting elephants from the extinction that has threatened them in the past." 128 pages.
