Expedition to the Bridger Basin of Wyoming (1922)



  • Existence: 1922


Preparator George Olsen with Mr. Paul C. Miller of Chicago University made a short expedition (five months) to the Bridger basin of Wyoming. They secrured a small but valuable collection of mostly fossil mammals from the Middle Eocene Bridger formations, including a partial skeleton of the rare Tillotherium, skeletons of creodonts and other interesting specimens, supplementing the collections obtained from an earlier expedition to the Bridger Eocene by Walter Granger in 1903-1906. The work was funded by Childs Frick.
