Two notebooks of Frederick William True containing field notes and daily entries on seals and other wildlife on St. Paul Island, Kelaire, Lukannan [Lukanin rookery], Polovina, Tolstoi [rookery], and St. George's Island, Alaska, June 27 - August 15, 1895. Journal entries are dated, and include narrative style entries. They include observations of wildlife and surrounding environments, sometimes including periodic recordings for one day. One contains extended descriptions interactions between mother and cub seals; a sealing event; list of birds seen (with sketches); and in the back a list of stations, dates, and observations on changes in observed numbers. Includes a pasted insert with a list of birds and eggs. Half the note book is blank. The second notebook includes observations of seal populations (cows, bulls, and pups); sealing; numbers relating to sealing (killed or rejected because of size); and includes some sketches of seals. Both books have True's name on the inside cover, but place the author at different places on the same day. It is possible that one of the books belonged to Leonhard Stejneger or another participant of the expedition. Includes sketches of birds and a list of specimens.
