Abstract

The journal documents the field work of Edward A. Goldman in Arizona, July 9 - October 6, 1923. Entries are dated and describe travel details (destinations, time of day, accommodations, campsites, distances), visit to Field Museum of Natural History (Chicago) and meeting with colleagues, weather, terrain (altitude, life zone), specimens collected, and work with officials and local staff (including rangers). Goldman notes that part of the purpose of travel is to see some crossed wild and domestic sheep. Additional location information includes ranch names, "Indian ruins", and geological landmarks. A portion of the notebook is blank. Locations include the vicinity of Tombstone, Huachuca mountains, Grand Canyon, Arizona.
