Description
The Charles D. Holliger field notes collection consists of field notes and specimen records completed in California between 1912-1915. The work represented here coincides with Holliger's time with the MVZ and UC Berkeley, where he received his B.S., M.S., and M.D. between 1913-1916.
Background
Born in 1883 in Fayette County, Illinois, Charles D. Holliger entered the UC system in 1909. Attending UC Berkeley, he received his B.S. in 1913, M.S. in 1914, and M.D. in 1916. He also served as a clerical assistant at the MVZ from 1910-1914, where his responsibilities included photographing specimens. Overall, Holliger collected more than 600 specimens that became part of the MVZ collection, with the majority being mammals. He collected primarily within California, and was a member of the field trip that produced the monograph Life in the Yosemite by Joseph Grinnell and Tracy I. Storer.
