Abstract

The journal documents Vernon Orlando Bailey's collecting specimens in Minnesota and North Dakota, July 1 - September 12, 1913. Entries are dated and describe travel details usually listing destination at beginning of an entry. The journal states that Bailey went to Elk River, Minnesota, to investigate the present condition of the Saw Fly larvae which had defoliated and killed trees in 1911 and 1912. Includes details about mode of travel, destinations, lists of birds seen (common name), discussions with colleagues at local Agricultural College, terrain (altitude), vegetation (notes about farming and including life zones), specimen collecting, and conversations with local individuals relating to collecting. Locations include Devil's Lake and Bismarck.
