Figgins and Reinheimer in the Field - c. 1913-1933

Museum Director Jesse Dade Figgins and Preparator Philip Reinheimer pose for a photo in a log cabin while out on a specimen-collecting trip in the field likely sometime in the 1920s. While expeditions today rely on computers and cameras, one of the most important tools of Figgins and Reinheimer's era is propped up against the wall near the head of the bed. 

Boyd Fletcher found yet another great image while scanning the glass plate negative collection.  Check back next week to see what he finds next.
