    Hi, Clara

    I’m working on an obituary story about Dr. Pauly for our internal publication at SLU. The photo in your story is so joyful that I wanted to see if we could have permission to use in ours. If so, could I get a high res version and photo credit.

    He was before my time at SLU but I’ve heard some wonderful things about him.

    Thanks.
    Jeanette
