The collection consists of the research field notes created and assembled by the Ornithology and Mammalogy Department of the
California Academy of Sciences. The field notes are arranged in folders by last name and are housed in 55 archival boxes.
Some field notes are bound while others are only copies of the originals. The collection spans from 1880-2010 with most decades
being well represented. The collection is not a comprehensive collection of staff field notes from the Ornithology and Mammalogy
department. Other field notes exist in the personal papers of some of the staff represented in this collection as well as
in the Ornithology and Mammalogy department records.
