John Keith RIGBY Sr (1926-2012)
paleontological bibliography
by Tomasz Wrzolek / updated in January 2017


* the list of 76 Rigby's publications has been extracted from the bibliographical database of the newsletter Fossil Cnidaria & Porifera at http://kse.wnoz.us.edu.pl/sql/index.php (72 records), supplemented by two records from the recently published volume FC&P 40 of December 2016, and by two records from the list of publications of Palaeontographica Canadiana
** the records are arranged by publication year and contain info on FC&P volume, issue and page where they were presented
*** the database mentioned above contains also abstracts of part of these papers
**** an obituary of JKR is at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=100730456; I hope one day we will have "paleontological" memory of our Colleague at the present page; let the present list be an introduction / supplement to this
