"To be a Naturalist is better than to be a King."

Favorite naturalist/surgeon/spy Stephen Maturin plays my favorite instrument, the cello, and naturalist William Beebe played my other favorite instrument, the banjo. Does this mean Beebe's slated to be a favorite of mine as well? Cornelia Dean reviews the Carol Grant Gould biography of Beebe, The Remarkable Life of William Beebe, Explorer and Naturalist in the New York Times.
