Bailey, Vernon, 1864-1942


This item is comprised of field notes from Bailey's 1906 trip to Wyoming and New Mexico to study wolf extermination. The notebook primarily contains specimen lists of plants and animals, listed by their scientific names. Place of collection or observation of specimens is indicated by nearby place names beginning near Rock Springs, Wyoming and ending near Silver City, New Mexico.
