More from the Jashemski Archives ...... and a query

We are progressing through adding the Stanley A. Jashemski photos to pompeiiinpictures.
There are now just over 400 spread across pompeiiinpictures and we are only up to 1964.
Here are some of Stanley's photos of the House of Fabius Rufus from 1961 and 1964.
We hope the comparison with some from 2011 is of interest to you.
They show the house as it was excavated and as it is now reconstructed. 
We also have a picture of Wilhelmina Jashemski with some colleagues and are hoping you can help us identify one of them.

He is with Wilhelmina with Dr Carlo Giordano on the right.

Hi Bob & Jackie,

I've been in touch with Bob Curtis, who was a student of Wilhemina's for many years, to inquire if he knew the identity of these unknown folks. Here is his reply.

"Yes, I've seen that Bob and Jackie are incorporating Stanley's photographs into their collection. That's really great since it will make them accessible to a far wider audience that they would have otherwise been. I looked at the photograph of Dr. J. and Dr. Giordano, but I don't recognize the other fellow. Maybe one of the older Italian scholars will recognize him."

Sorry, I can't be of further help. I did try to copy you into the correspondence, but alas the email address I have for you is not working any longer (perhaps a casualty of your PiP server issue?)

All the best,
