Abstract

Gabrielson's more or less daily journal from 1 January 1957 to 31 December 1959 containing mostly meeting notes, but also many lists of birds observed and collected. Notes of every day life also include mention of additional bird sightings and collection. Gabrielson's bird lists also include notes on abundance or commonality. Many of the bird lists seem to be taken near his home. Localities encompass a wide geographic range as Gabrielson traveled often. Localities include but are not limited to Cameron Bay, Grays Bay, and Sheep Island in Nunavut,Canada, and San Antonio, Texas.
