Mineral enthusiasts will be familiar with the names of The Zweibels, and Cal Graeber. Apparently, Fred Keidel (deceased) was a collector by avocation, who was employed as an egineer by DuPont, and who donated a number of fine minature specimens to the Univerisity for display, as mentioned in this edition of the Univeristy of Delaware Messanger.
