Field notes and maps, 1933, includes Tully and upper Hamilton
This field book contains notes on the paleontological specimen and geology of the Devonian Hamilton Group (upper Hamilton) and Tully in eastern New York taken in 1933, possibly July because of an entry dated 6 July. Locations Cooper visits include New Berlin, West Brook, Pittsfield, Bear Gulch Pond, Summit Hill, and other areas. Cooper describes stratigraphy of the locations, often providing color and consistency of shale in which fossils are found. Also included are several maps that are annotated and have numeric or alpha numeric codes that Cooper uses in his field notes to refer to locations. Page numbers for these field notes are 1516-1566.
