Abstract

The work on the Jawbone Canyon area was undertaken at the suggestion of Dr. J. P. Buwalda, with the intention of working out the physical, aerial and historical relations as completely as possible. The problem was carried on by Mr. G. A. Schroter and myself as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science.

Operations began about the middle of January, 1928, and lasted until the first of June of the same year. The total time spent in the field amounted to approximately twenty-six days, since but two days of each week were available for this work.
