Hi All,

I've been spending some spare time compiling a list of prolific meteorite
finders (primarily extracting all finders' names from Meteoritical
Bulletins), and was wondering if anyone had a list of meteorites
found by Nininger (since his heydays predate the Bulletins)? His
influence is certainly responsible for hundreds of meteorites being
recovered from the grain belt, but I haven't been able to find a list
of meteorites he actually found himself.

Of course, any such list that I can compile will be very incomplete
since some of the most prolific finders are nameless nomads from
Northwest Africa, the dozens of Antarctic finders working as teams,
and anonymous hunters searching in Libya, Egypt, Oman and other hot
desert locations. (There are a LOT of Acfer finds!)
