The set of loose sheets documents field collecting and research, 1915- 1963. The work may be a compilation of multiple unknown creators. Some sheets are dated and contain a variety of information, including descriptions and measurements of specimens, geological sections (e.g. near Judith Gap), sections with drawings, references to live ostrocods. There appear to be descriptions of geological characteristics of locations in Maryland (Governor Run, Calvert, Chesapeake Beach). There are multiple references to Calvert.
