Bailey - Nevada, etc., May - July 1898

About the Project

In the spring of 1898, naturalist Vernon Bailey was again on horseback observing the area biodiversity and collecting specimens as part of the United States Biological Survey, working to put together a comprehensive picture of flora and fauna across the North American continent. Bailey includes in his notes daily activities, travel details and the people he encountered along the way. The field book ends before the expedition did, Bailey handing off field journaling responsibilities to his colleague Dr. C. Hart Merriam. Please help us transcribe Bailey's 1898 field notes and make his observations more accessible to researchers today.
