"Henry Byroade was United States ambassador to Afghanistan from 1959 to 1963. He undertook a hunt to the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan in August 1959 after obtaining special permission from the Afghan government. After going as far as his vehicle could take him, he traveled for three days on horseback to get to the hunting camp in the Tuliboi Valley. He collected two young Marco Polo argalis" (Czech).
