American Museum Expedition of Cretaceous Dinosaur Beds in Alberta (1910-1915)
- Existence: 1910 - 1915
The American Museum Expedition of Cretaceous Dinosaur Beds in Alberta (1910-1915) was led by Barnum Brown to explore the Cretaceous beds of Alberta, Canada, along the Red Deer River and Edmonton formation. Brown collected fossil specimens, new or little known at the time, including crested and horned dinosaurs. This was one of three major Vertebrate Paleontology expeditions in North America carried out by the American Museum of Natural History at the turn of the 20th century.
Brown first traveled to Canada in 1909 to explore the area and determined that the badlands could be worked with a large, flat-bottomed boat. Since 1902, Brown and his team had been excavating in the Cretaceous and Laramie Cretaceous of Montana. These expeditions overlapped in 1910.
