Give Barnaby A Visit

If anyone happens to go through northern California, one might stop in at the Santa Barbara Cemetery in Santa Barbara, California to give the late Barnaby Conrad a visit.

Conrad rests beneath a decidedly unelaborate grave, a ground level flat marker carrying his name with birth and death data, as well as that for his wife who remains alive.

Conrad was one of the pioneers of writing about bullfighting in English,  with books including Matador, How To Fight A Bull, Encyclopedia Of Bullfighting and The Death Of Manolete.
