General Note:
Per Suzanne Schmidt Goldstein: Pacific Black Marlin found on the beach at Balboa, Canal Zone July, 1937. This fish washed up emaciated from illness and was still 965 lbs. It was almost dead. It was not caught. The boy peeking out and holding up pectoral fin is Theodore Schmidt and not John Schmidt. I do not believe that is Marie Schmidt.
