Bailey - California, Colorado, Kansas, October 1891 - November 1891

About the Project

When you go on a walk, what do you notice? While waiting for a stagecoach in Colfax, California, naturalist Vernon Bailey walked the hills and noticed an unusual absence of chipmunks. He stopped to talk with some local men about it. Working for the United States Biological Survey, Bailey's keen eyes gathered details on more than just mammals. Plants and even rocks are noted in his field journal. Please help us transcribe his notes from the fall of 1891.
