Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Summary
The French mycologist Roger Heim was a pioneer in hallucinogenic mushroom research and ethnomycology. He travelled in Mexico with R. Gordon Wasson where they collected samples of psychoactive mushrooms being used in healing ceremonies. Heim helped Wasson on the 1957 article in Life Magazine about psychoactive mushrooms and Maria Sabina, by contributing watercolor images of Psilocybes. He held the position of Director of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, later becoming associated with Sandoz Pharmaceutical, travelling and collecting mushroom specimen for them.
