Scott Klemm is a retired high school history teacher. He received his BA from San Diego State and a MAT from the University of Redlands. It was while at the University of Redlands he took a class on the Ancient Near East that led to a lifelong fascination with Egypt’s history and culture. Scott’s other interests are in photographing wildlife and wildflowers. He also has a hobby of collecting antique locks and keys. This interest led him to publish in 2008 a book entitled Ancient Locks: The Evolutionary Development of the Lock and Key. The book covers Egypt as well as Greece, Rome, Ancient Israel and China.
Allan Gluck is a semi-retired real estate appraiser who became fascinated with Egyptology after a one-month trip to Egypt in December 2011.

Allan’s interest in Egyptology is coupled with an interest in photography, which he purses through photography classes at Santa Monica College. For Allan, being a RAFFMA docent helps bring alive ancient Egypt’s 6,000 years of culture that is so integral to Western thought.
