Nobody has mentioned Robbo so far,
so here are two small anecdotes,
I don't remember anything specific that he taught me about geography but I do remember he advised us that if we wanted to invest in the stock market we should buy when the market falls and sell when it rose. It sounded silly at the time but I suppose he was right.
I remember catching him just after a class had finished and observing that I thought that it was odd that the west coast of Africa seemed to be the same shape as the east coast of South America. Was it significant? No he said, it was just a coincidence. This was admittedly in about 1950 before continental drift had achieved much credibility
