.1.3. HA RtKIN. rI,,l/ L-.qz a ATIONAL PARKS x COMMIsaHER MIGRATORY BIRDS CONVENTION ACT HISTORIC SITES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR NATIONAL PARKS OF CANADA Personal. OTTAWA IN YOUR REPLY R TO VL....................... .......... Dear Mr. Leopold,- With reference to your letter of April 29, 1930, I handed the "Canadian Field-Naturalist" your enclosure ordering a copy of the number which con- tains the article on the Gray Partridge in the Okana- gan Valley, British Columbia. The "Naturalist" is a very important paper and contains numerous articles on Canadian game mam- mals, and migratory birds. Of course it contains much material other than mammals and birds. It is too bad that you cannot find a complete file of it for analysis along the line that you require. Per- haps you had better come and work at Ottawa for a while where several files are available. Seton quotes from it quite widely in his book "Lives." I do not know that you need the complete set of the"Canadian Field-Naturalist". It might do if you had it from 1918 to date. This can be furnished at a reasonable price by the Club. The particular items on Canadian game which might be of interest to you, and which are not listed in your letter are : Taverner's "Birds of , Western Canada", book, - for sale by National Museum of Canada, $2.00 per copy; Taverner's Birds of Eastern i 0anada", ou.t of print; Macoun and Macoun "Catalogue of Canadian Birds", out of print, often for sale at about $3.00; "Birds of Saskatchewan" by H. H. iltchell, special nuJmber of the "Canadian Field-Naturalist" a few years ago; F. Bradshaw had a paper on the "Intro- duction of the Hungarian Partridge in Western Canada"." ,!' He is now Director of the Provincial Museum, Regina, Saskatchewan, and might have a separate or copy of this paper. There is good Canadian material in Phillip's "Dmcks of the World", and, of course, "The North Ameri- can Paunas" which deal with Canada are excellent. "Number 27 Athabasca-MacKenzie District" by Preble, and the one that deals with the Hudson Bay Region are per- haps the most important. There would be a wealth of short articles as well and the summary reports of the Geological Survey would be useful, but I doubt if you could find them without coming to Ottawa and working for a while at the Library of the National Museum and the Geological Survey. Yours very truly, Hoye loyd Supervisor, Wild Life Division Aldo Leopold, Esq., 421 Chemistry Bldg., Madison, Wisconsin.
