G. Arthur Cooper - Field Notes and Maps, 1939
About the Project
Are you a fossil hunter? Then you know how important field work is. G. Arthur Cooper (1902-2000) was known for his extensive field work throughout North America while working in inverterbrate paleontology at the United States National Museum. Starting as an assistant curator in the division of stratigraphic paleontology, Cooper became known for his work with brachiopods. The Smithsonian's acid-etching laboratory was established for work with fossils under his guidance.
Please help us transcribe this field book from two weeks in the fall of 1939 containing his notes on the paleontological specimens and geology of Devonian areas of Utah and Nevada.
