### \thanks with multiple \authors and institutes

Is there a more principled way to achieve the following?

I'm thinking of something like \thanks[1]{...} and then \thanksref{1}

Note that I'm trying to avoid having each institute appear more than once.

\documentclass{article}

\title{Oddly named Animals}
\author{Arthur Aardvark\thanks{Institute of Aardvarks and Zebras}
\and Egbert Elephant\thanks{Institute of Elephants and Foxes}
\and Fred Fox\footnotemark[2]
\and Zoe Zebra\footnotemark[1]}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

The document...

\end{document}

Hi there!

I don't know if this is exactly what you mean, but the elsevier document class has a feature like that:
(I cut out some of the non relevant parts to make it shorter.)
\documentclass{elsart4} \usepackage{graphicx}\usepackage{amssymb}\usepackage{natbib}\usepackage{textcomp}  \begin{document}\begin{frontmatter} \title{} %----------------------------------------------------------------------% List of authors%% List each author using a separate \author{} command%% If there is more than one author address, add a label to each author% of the form \author[label]{name}.  This label should be identical to% the corresponding label provided with the \address command.%% e.g. if there are three authors from two institutions in USA and % France, you can link them to their respective addresses, using%% \author[US]{John Doe}% \author[US,FR]{Jane Doe}% \author[FR]{Jean Dupont}% \address[US]{University of Life, Somewhere, USA}% \address[FR]{Universite de la Vie, Quelque Part, France}%% N.B. Unlike the document class used for abstract submissions, it is% possible to have the author associated with more than one address,% as shown in the example above.% \author[]{} %----------------------------------------------------------------------% List of addresses%% If there is more than one address, list each using a separate % \address command using a label to link it to the respective author% as described above \address[]{} %----------------------------------------------------------------------% Title page footnotes%% If you need to add qualifying information to any of the authors, % use the \thanksref{} command within the \author command.  The % argument is the label of a corresponding \thanks[label]{text}% command which contains the footnote text%% e.g. you can acknowledge a funding authority for John Doe, using%% \author{John Doe\thanksref{ABC}}% \thanks[ABC]{This work was supported by Institute of Unphysical %    Phenomena under contract no. ABC-123}% %\thanks[]{} %----------------------------------------------------------------------% Contact Information%% Add the complete postal address, telephone number, fax number, and% email address of the corresponding author as a special footnote using% the \corauth[]{} command.  This works in a similar way to the \thanks % command.  Add the \corauthref{} command within the \author command.% The argument is the label of a corresponding \corauth[label]{text}% command which contains the contact information.  Prefix the text with% Corresponding Author:%% e.g. if the contact author is John Doe,%% \author{John Doe\corauthref{1}}% \corauth[1]{Corresponding Author: University of Life, 123 Some St.,%    Somewhere, MI 12345, USA.  Phone: (555) 555-5555 %    Fax: (555) 555-7777, Email: JDoe@uol.edu}% \corauth[]{} %---------------------------------------------------------------------- %----------------------------------------------------------------------\end{frontmatter}   Manuscript text \end{document}
