Summary

Vertebrate Paleontology Exhibit at the Conference on the Future of the Smithsonian, February 11, 1927, with Charles W. Gilmore, paleontologist and curator, sitting in front of a display panel entitled "Studies in Vertebrate Paleontology". The picture is of a "Dinosaur Quarry near Jensen, Utah." There are two renderings showing what the diplodocus dinosaur skeleton would look like, and between the pictures is a model labeled "Model in Miniature of Diplodocus" dinosaur. On either side are large dinosaur bones with the one on the left labeled a "Shoulder Blade." At the bottom center of the display is a block of sandstone showing diplodocus neck bones partly uncovered. Mineral samples and a microscope are on a table behind Gilmore. Also behind Gilmore are several panels. The top left panel is labeled "Rockweathering and Soil Formation" and the top right panel is labeled "Studies in Mineral Genesis". Below the picture on the left, another label reads "Rockweathering and Soil Formation."
