Binford Message Board,

I am Mr. Robert C. Skelly (Chris/CHRISVEN), age 36 of Bakersfield, CA., U.S.A..
In 1983, I attended CLOVIS WEST HIGH SCHOOL FRESNO, CA.. While there in the 9th grade, I had an Arts & Crafts class. A person named RICK BINFORD was a classmate of mine.

I was going to ask RICK about himself, his family, & other BINFORD relatives.
I was specifically going to ask if he knew of any BINFORD relatives that have a rare congenital eye condition known as COLOBOMA...specifically iris colobomas.

I study this most interesting heriditary human genetic eye condition in which there is a lack of colored pigment (which is a failure of color fusion to complete eye development inside the optic cup(s) of both (bilateral) eyes, or one eye (unilateral)).
I distinctly remember RICK BINFORD always wearing sunglasses, and I never once saw him remove them while in class.
I think he had a brother maybe...maybe BRYAN BINFORD was his name. I saw very little of him, distally.
However, I was not able to ask RICK BINFORD about his BINFORD roots as suddenly one day he was no longer in the ARTS & CRAFTS class that I mentioned earlier.
(I was told (by classmates) that he had joined the R.O.T.C., and that was the last I saw or heard of him).

So, if anyone knows RICK and/or BRYAN BINFORD, could you get this e-mail to them...PLEASE...and make sure that they know of my Coloboma(s) webpage that I have created, which shows case examples of iris coloboma inheritance in eye photos/images. Here is my COLOBOMA study webpage address/URL:

I would most importantly like to know if there are any BINFORD FAMILY PEDIGREE INHERITANCE CHARTS that will show the inheritance of iris colobomas, or any colobomas (or other eye traits).

Please make a response to this posting if you have any relevant and related information pertaining to my questions.

Informatively and Thank You,

Mr. Robert C. Skelly (Chris/CHRISVEN), age 36
Former Classmate of RICK BINFORD @
Bakersfield, CA., U.S.A..
(661)-834-9999 to speak by telephone about BINFORDS.
