Expedition to the Cretaceous of Alberta, Canada, by Barnum Brown. The party consisted of Brown
in charge, P. C. Kaisen, Bob Reid and A. F. Johnson, assistants and C. S. Price, cook. Mr. Kaisen left New
York first, going into camp June 8th at the mouth of Sand Creek, the locality of last years damp and point
convenient to the best exposures 10 miles below Steveville. Mr. Johnson joined him on June 10th and on
June 20th Price and Reid left Tolman by canoe, reaching camp June 24th. Brown arrived in camp on July
24th. Brown on the way out stopped to investigate a reported skeleton, that proved to be mythical. He
found some Belly River exposures S and NE of Irvine, where dinosaur bones and teeth were found but not
numerous. In the overlying Bear-paw S of Irving he saw plesiosaur vertebrae and a badly weathered
mosasaur skeleton. Near Sand Creek in the past season they had located 4 good looking prospects.
The men began working on those, and they proved to be nearly complete skeletons of Deinodon,
Corythosaurus, Monoclonius and Ankylosaurus. During this work 4 other skeletons of Ornithomimus,
Kritosaurs, Monoclonius and Deinodon. These 8 skeletons can be used as exhibition specimens. The
season was unusually dry and propitious for field work. 2 other parties collected near them. William E.
Cutler with an assistant, worked for a Calgary fossil syndicate. Mr. Charles H. Sternberg and sons,
representing the Canadian government, camped down river outside our exposures, but Sternberg
disregarded the ethics of the field, invaded their territory and worked near camp for 2 weeks, taking up a
fine skull and part of the skeleton of a Ceratops. Brown found another area to explore next season near
the head of Sand Creek. They finished quarry work Sept. 25th. Then rebuilt the road to Patricia, a
station on the new C.P.R. line, where they loaded a car with 83 boxes of fossils on Sept 29th. After
nearly a weeks delay, Brown went to Bassano and then N to the head of Red Deer, 40 miles W of Olds,
where fossils had been reported. These turned out to be only fragments of Belly River age. From
there Brown went to south fork of Milk River, near the international boundary, 30 miles W of
Sweetgrass. There are good exposures on the Montana side, with numerous bones exposed. This
area Brown proposes to work during the next season. In southern Alberta Brown met with a
representative of the United Oil Company of Calgary who proposed a systematic reconnaissance of
southern Alberta, which he did. He did not attempt to collect anything, but found 2 promising areas.
One was on Milk River S. of Pakowi Lake, and the other was on Lost River and Manyberries SE of Pakowi.
A fourth Expedition to the Agate Spring Quarry, Sioux Co., NE, by Albert Thomson. This year they
secured some choice Moropus material, about 5 more or less complete skeletons, 2 skulls with jaws,
one with a premaxilla. The first to be discovered. Some of this material was obtained by tunneling,
although this was not a very safe operation. In the latter part of the season Mr. Chas. Barner and Mr. A.
C. Whitford were engaged as assistants.
