Records of North American COMMITTEE BgGm lBig Game Pic ES USEUM HORNS A PUBLICATION OF OF THE HAROLD E. ANTHONY THE BOONE AND CROCKETT CLUB NEW YORK ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY R. R. M. CARPENTER IN CARE OF AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY COLUMBUS AVENUE AND 77TH STREET NEW YORK. N. Y. June 29th, 1936 Dear Sir: The first edition of "Records of North American Big Game" with which you are no doubt familiar, was published in 1932 under the auspices of the National Museum of Heads and Horns of the New York Zoological Sooi- ety. It was the first work of its kind to be published in this country. After the publication of this book Mr. Prentiss N. Gray, who edited it, commenced gathering material for a second edition. Unfortu- nately he was killed in an untimely accident. A committee has been ap- pointed to carry on where Mr. Gray left off and to complete the gathering of material and publish a second edition. The committee desires to receive data on specimens measuring up to or better than the standards specified on the enclosed sheet. Will you not cooperate with us by advising us whether you your- self have heads, not already recorded with Mr. Gray or this committee, which meet the requirements above referred to and by sending us the names and addresses of owners of other heads which you believe will qualify. The standards of measurement that will qualify heads for in- clusion in the second edition will depend largely upon the number and size of heads registered with the committee. The work is sponsored by sportsmen in the interest of sports- men and science and is in no sense a commercial publication. If you desire further information please do not hesitate to call upon us and accept in advance our appreciation of your cooperation. Very truly yours, MJ.OU L.L4 L G, b 4C.J % AfIA .
