In camp near Salt Lake City with mountains in the background, survey leader Ferdinand V. Hayden enjoys a fresh-air meal with assistant chief James Stevenson, topographer Frank Bradley and wife Emma Woodruff Hayden. Hayden graduated from Albany Medical School with a burning desire to be a naturalist. His career began in 1853 when he spent a year in the Dakotas collecting for an Indian agent. In February 1856 he joined the Warren survey of the Dakota territory. After serving as a surgeon in the Union Army during the Civil War, the government needed specialized information about the Trans-Mississippi West and thus launched Hayden on his exploration of the territory.
