Vernon Bailey with E. A. Preble - May to September 1896
About the Project
Do you prefer to travel alone or with others? Naturalist Vernon Bailey, a member of the United States Biological Survey team, often traveled with others in his work to document species across North America. In the summer of 1896, he was joined by old friend C. Hart Merriam and another companion Edward A. Preble. A naturalist and conservationist, Preble would go on to publish "A Biological Investigation of the Athabaska-Mackenzie Region" in 1908, based on later expeditions with the Survey to what is now central Alberta, Canada. Join volunteeers in transcribing the field notes of these two men whose work took them to the far corners of the continent.
