My family knew Morgan Berry in the 1950s when my father (Ed Johnson) was zoo director at Woodland Park Zoo. I have a picture of me (age two) holding Mr. Berry's hand while a load of neighborhood kids gathered around a baby elephant that he had brought to our house in the back of his car. I am currently working on publishing a book on the history of Woodland Park Zoo and we'd like to include the picture posted on CircusNoSpin on Monday,June 4, 2012 of Morgan Berry putting a baby elephant in a car. It would be used along with my family picture in the book. Please contact me to discuss if we can have permission to use this photo. Thank you.
