Vancouver Island and the Trinity Alps

On Her Own Terms

University of California Press

This chapter studies the time when the women conducted surveys of two regions in the Pacific Northwest: the Trinity Alps in northern California and Vancouver Island in British Columbia. It notes that this occurred before they bought the land in Grizzly Island. The discussion examines each expedition separately, and takes note of the specimens that they were able to recover from these sites. It shows that these specimens not only increased the holdings of the museum, but also provided important material for Grinnell and his staff to interpret and study. The specimens found in the expedition to the Trinity Mountains formed the basis for Kellogg's 1916 publication, the “Report upon mammals and birds found in portions of Trinity, Siskiyou and Shasta counties, with description of a new Dipodomys.” The chapter ends with a note that Alexander and Kellogg returned to the Trinity Mountains one last time, in the summer of 1948.
