Sources of Personnel
After reading the book several times, I've attempted counting the personnel, and this is the most logical conclusion I've come to. Lex finds the ear of a worker on the floor of the Control Room near the end of the novel, but the rest of him is presumably eaten. There are two security guards on the island, one in the lobby of the Visitor Center, named Jimmy. He spots Nedry going to the garage. The other isn't named, but he is the one that reports back to Arnold when they're looking for Nedry. In the chapter "The Tour", Tim notes that there are four lab technicians. The only known maintenance personnel are Ramon and Carlos, but two "Tican workmen" go to the Safari Lodge when they find out the raptors are loose. A third nods to John Hammond when he is walking to his bungalow. That leaves five total maintenance personnel, two guards, and four lab technicians. When Grant is walking to the Land Cruisers, "Two blackmen in Safari uniforms opened the doors". These I've called Tour Guides (male). The female Tour Guide handed out pith helmets near the beginning of the tour. Finally, Maria is stated to be Hammond's Bungalows cook, and there are probably two cooks working in the Visitor Center Cafeteria.
Any thoughts? This is the closest I've gotten to naming the entire personnel, but if anyone finds any flaws or has any other thoughts, I'd like to know!
