Abstract

The most interesting, informative, and profitable course taken by the writer as an undergraduate (at Oberlin College) was a travelling field course through the northwestern states led by Dr. Lynds Jones, Professor of Ecology. In direct imitation of this, a similar course was conducted in the summer of 1955 by Iowa State Teachers College, which covered 6,600 miles, from Cedar Falls to the northwest corner of the state of Washington, through the Badlands and Black Hills, and Yellowstone, Glacier, Mt. Rainier and Olympic Parks, returning by way of the Oregon coast, Crater Lake, northeastern California, Great Salt Lake, Dinosaur Monument, and Rocky Mountain Park. It was particularly appropriate to follow much of the trail of Lewis and Clark in this sesquicentennial year of their pioneer exploration.
