      My dad is training one of the chimps on some sort of bike contraption.

      By any chance did your dad know Bob who use to do the sea lion shows. He is a good friend of mine.

      I'm sorry, dad died in 1967. I don't remember him mentioning anyone named Bob, but I was pretty young at the time. I would be grateful if you could ask Bob if he remembers any of the chimp trainers. Dad's name was Arthur Brown, and he worked at the zoo from 1948 to 1964. His friends that I remember were Tom Brun and a man named Ernie, I think.
