The Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation is proud to support a broad spectrum of
initiatives that contribute to the inspiration and excellence of America's
educated citizenry. One example is our grant to the Museum of the Rockies and
famed paleontologist Jack Horner. Professor Horner recently discovered what is
believed to be the three oldest Tyrannosaurus Rex fossils ever found, and the
most complete juvenile Tyrannosaur ever found.
Estimated to be some two million years older than previously identified
specimens, the oldest of the three 67 million year-old Tyrannosaurus rex
specimens -- named B-Rex, after Bob Harmon, one of Horner's team members who
located the fossil -- was discovered in a remote area of Montana known as Hell
Creek. B-Rex was one of eight T-rex found by Horner and his team during the
second and third seasons of a five-year dig.
The project was funded substantially by the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation and
the Discovery Channel.
