Papers of paleontologist and zoologist Charles Lewis Camp.
Charles Camp was born in Jamestown, North Dakota on March 12, 1893 to Theodosia Baird Camp and Edgar Whittlesey Camp, a prominent attorney. Several years later, the Camp family moved to Southern California and Charles Camp attended Throop Polytechnic Institute in Pasadena, California. He earned his A.B. in 1915 at the University of California, Berkeley and his Ph.D. in 1923 from Columbia University. His doctoral work was interrupted from 1917 to 1919 by active service with the United States Army in France. Camp joined the University of California, Berkeley faculty as a zoologist in 1922. He transferred to the Paleontology Department in 1930, and he directed the museum of Paleontology from 1930 until 1949. Camp retired from teaching in 1960.
