I visited La Paz on 6 February 1954, and found three sperm whales in advanced stages of decomposition, on an inner, shallow beach, just east of the city of La Paz. I also received details of the mass stranding from two informants in La Paz: Mrs. Margaret Waters, stringer for the New York Times, and teacher of English; and Sr. Luis Collins, manager of Hotel Mision. Collins also gave me photos.
