Bailey, Vernon, 1864-1942


This item documents Bailey's collecting efforts in Minnesota and Ontario, Canada in 1905 and field notes kept on trips to Michigan and Minnesota during 1907. The first 5 pages are from 1905 and the remainder of the book documents Bailey's study of wolves in Minnesota and Michigan in March and April of 1907. The field book is comprised primarily of specimen lists of plants and animals identified by genus and species. Common names are sometimes included in specimen lists. Bailey indicates gender of mammals taken from the field and sometimes indicates that fetuses are present in the specimen taken. The item also includes very brief lists from a few other states including Ohio and Wisconsin.
