Dr. Louis Leakey, Dr. Mary Leakey and Dr. Gerhard Heberer discuss the bones of chimpanzees.

Identification of the scientists at the end was made by Dr. Alan Mann of Princeton University, and Dr. Janet Monge of University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Monge notes that Dr. Louis S.B. Leakey and Dr. Mary D. N. Leakey appear at the end, and Dr. Mann notes that the third person is Dr. Gerhard Heberer from Gottingen. There is an article Heberer wrote about the OH9 skull* and in it he describes his two meetings with the Leakeys in 1961.
