Local field note-book of Lester Ward
About the Project
What do a Civil War veteran, a paleontologist and a pioneer in American sociology have in common? Lester Ward (1841-1913). He was all three over the course of his life. We hope you will help us transcribe this personal journal detailing his field work while working in Virginia and the District of Columbia with the United States Geological Survey in 1892 and 1893.
