The field book documents the work of Charles L. Gazin in the Bridger Basin, June 11 - August 27, 1941. The notebook states it documents the "1941 Expedition to Bridger Basin," Acc. no. 159612. It contains a specimen list that details specimen number (1-120), description, collector (C.L.G., G.F.S., F.P., party), date (June 10 - August 29), and locality. Locality description varies in length, and is sometimes very detailed. Also included is a list of boxes with descriptions of contents (specimen number and description). One narrative passage describes a very detailed route to various collection sites from July 23 to August 1. The inside back cover includes a graph with numbered plots and labeled axes.
