STORY: Jungleland | Biblion: World's Fair

Larry Tetzlaff was the son of a contractor who remodeled businesses and homes and a stay at home mother who was formerly a school teacher. Larry’s childhood interest in reptiles flourished as he reached his teens. To share his wonder of the animal kingdom with others, he rented a building in his hometown and opened a reptilium to the public. Revenue from this allowed Larry to attend Western Michigan University. Following the publication of Larry’s scientific paper on the care of snakes, famous animal collector Frank “Bring ‘em Back Alive” Buck contacted Tetzlaff during his sophomore year and he left college to work for Buck at the historic 1939 World’s Fair in New York City.
