DONTLY CLERICAM.--MISS LYDIA STUMPF TflT MADISON 2 November 30# 194 FILE REFERENCEt Mr. Victor arkiula Herbster Wisconsin Dear Mr. Markkula: We wish to thank you for the wolf skin which arrived today In good shape. You did a fine job of skinning it out. It will be a good addition to our study of skins for eduational use. Our preliminary investigation Indioat-s that it is a timber wokf and not a brush wolf or coyote according to the bounty claim. Our dclsion Is based largely on the total length of the animal which is considerably more than the maximum for coyote. Also, omeo e evidently weighed the animal, for the bounty olaim listed a weight of 70 pounds and that Is why we believed it was not a coyote and arranged to purchase the skin. We understand you did not weigh it. For our records to go with this specimen, would you please answer the following quesitonsI 1. Where was the animal taken? Can you give us section, township and range or else a definite distance from a speified village? 2. Was animal trapped? 3. Were other wolves running with It In a pack? 4. Was it a male? We believe it ws but wigh to be positive. 8. Whrt date did you take the animal? Thank you for this Information. An envelope is enclosed for your convenience in replying. Very truly yours MANAGEYNT bIVISION W. L. 9oott, Supervisor Cooperative Game Management WE8 tI DC. Jo;n omm Leo old .1 r. Yohn me, Jr., TJ.W. E. J. VANDERWALL. DIRECTOR
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR NATIONAL PARK SERVICE CHICAGO 54, ILLINOIS December 19, 1946. Mr. Aldo Leopold, Department of Wildlife Management, University of -isconsin, 424 University Farm Place, Madison, Wisconsin. Dear Aldo: The two copies of Swift's publication arrived. I should have informed you previously. I appreciate very much the trouble you took to have the bulletins sent to me and hope it was not too much bother. Undoubtedly, there will be an opportunity for you to get in on the Mount McKinley wolf preservation scrap. The Camp Fire Club people do not change their minds easily. (I could almost drop the word "easily".) I hope it will be possible for you to get to Mount McKinley sometime, and that before the wolves are all gone. The opportunity which I enjoyed on several occasions in August 1940 for watching a number of those fine animals may not occur again. The principal sparkplugs of the Camp Fire Club's campaign tried to persuade the Boone and Crockett Club to go on the record in favor of a wolf extermination bill. From someone who was present at the annual meeting two weeks ago, I ha*heard that Gabrielson really spoke his mind (in our favor) and practically called the Camp Fire Club boys a bunch of ignoramuses. Sincerely yours, Victor H. Cahalane, Biologist.
