This chapter focuses on Arthur Henry Reginald Buller and Curtis Gates Lloyd. Buller is considered the greatest experimental mycologist in history. Lloyd was a 60-year-old millionaire and a self-taught expert in fungal identification. Bound by their mutual authority in the mycological community, common obsession with fungi, and similar lifestyles, their brief meeting in 1920 led to a lifelong friendship.
