Scope and Contents
Robert H. Rockwell, and two assistants, are seen performing several aspects of the mounting procedure in the AMNH Department of Preparation. They insert leg substructures into the loose tanned skin; cover the buffalo model with plaster; fit skin onto the plaster-covered model; insert the legs into sockets; and work the skin into the plaster. The Akeley method of mounting large animals is covered in Mounting The Indian Elephant. This is all that remains of a much longer film.
