Notes

English

This field book is a diary kept by Stejneger during his trip to Nikolski (NikolÕskoye) Bering Island (Ostrov Beringa) to study fur seals in 1908 (this year is questionable). The notebook is dated 31 August to 08 September. Stejneger's notes provide a daily account of his experiences, including observations of the seals and their environment, and of the processes of the killing of seals and collecting of seal skins. Many of Stejneger's notes are reflective, and he comments on the massive killing of fur seals he witnesses.
