This is the fifth of sixteen volumes compiled by William Henry Holmes in 1931 or 1932 to document his life and work. According to the text, his field notes from the period have largely been destroyed. The volume is divided into five sections. | The first section covers 1879 with the establishment of the U.S. Geological Survey and Holmes' personal travel to Europe to visit museums. Section two covers 1880 and Holmes' work as a geologist on the Hayden Survey. Contains dated descriptions of route traveled and work completed, including collecting fossils and sketching. There is a biography, correspondence, and publication of geologist Clarence Edward Dutton. Describes mapping of Colorado and the closing of "the Hayden Survey of the Territories." The third section covers a trip in 1884 to Mexico. Section four relates to travel in the Rocky Mountains with Langley and Powell, primarily images. Section five describes the work on the Chicago Exposition and his acceptance of a position with the Chicago Field Museum. Throughout the volume Holmes has inserted original watercolors and drawings, transcriptions and original correspondence, memorabilia including his passport, menus.

William Henry Holmes (1846-1933) was an anthropologist, archaeologist, artist, and geologist, who spent much of his career affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution. He studied art under Theodore Kauffman, and went on to work as a scientific illustrator with Smithsonian staff. In 1872, he was appointed artist-topographer to the United States survey of the territories under Ferdinand V. Hayden, and in 1874 was appointed assistant geologist. He went on to work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE), until returning to the Smithsonian Institution, United States National Museum (USNM). Holmes eventually became head curator of the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Anthropology and Director of the National Gallery of Art.
