Here’s an unusual photographic hobby:

Table-Top Photos of Grasshoppers

CREATING LIFELIKE SCENES in miniature is Dr. Lehman Wendell’s way of relaxing. The Minneapolis dentist arranges his insect “actors” with dime-store props. Their stage is the top of a tahle in the basement; lighting is supplied by two ordinary bulbs, one cm each side. Dr. Wendell snaps the scenes with a single-lens reflex camera and does his own processing.

    Dr. Lehman Wendell was one of the nation’s foremost Esperantists, and published numerous works in and about the Esperanto language. At the time of his death in 1977, he was the nation’s oldest speaker of the “international language.” I would be glad to communicate with others interested in the Esperanto-related activities of Dr. Wendell.

    I understand the main character in “Dinner for Schmucks” does this with mice.

    Tableaus, that is, not speaking Esperanto. Mice don’t speak that as far as I know.
