Earl L. Packard Papers, 1913-1980

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of materials generated and collected by Earl L. Packard and includes notes, reference materials, maps, correspondence, and a student paper. The handwritten and typed notes reflect paleontological field work by Packard and others in the Mitchell, Suplee, and Beavercreek areas of Oregon. Research notations can also be found on hand-drawn and mass-produced maps, some of which document work at summer field camps in Dayville and Beavercreek, Oregon; the maps date from 1915 through the late 1940s. Primarily consisting of studies on the fossil remains of ammonites, mollusca, and pelecypods, the reference materials also include articles on ancient Mesoamerican culture and Alaskan geology; primarily, these materials date from the 1930s, 1960s, and 1970s. The student paper, Fossiliferous Cretaceous Areas on the Northern Flank of the Ochoco Range, Oregon State, was written by Jules DuBar in 1950; it documents research from one of the college summer field camps coordinated by Packard.
