Yes, a good number of McHenry's publications are very interesting from the historical point of view. For instance, I've just downloaded and read "On the status of Australopithecus afarensis", which appeared in the journal Science vol. 207, no. 4435 (March 7, 1980). The authors listed for this are M.H. Day, Mary D. Leakey, Todd R. Olsen, R.E.F. Leakey, A. Walker, Henry M. McHenry, Robert S. Corruccini, D.C. Johanson, and T.D. White.
Actually, this is a series of short comments presenting the different views of the subject (the status of A. afarensis) these authors held (hold?),the first comment by Day, Mary Leakey & Olsen, followed by another from Richard Leakey and Alan Walker, and then another by McHenry & Corruccini, then finished with concluding comment by Johanson & White. It's only 4 pages, altogether, and a very interesting review from a historical POV.
The McHenry publications have what I call 'mining' potential.
