Dinosaur Hunting in Western Canada

Dinosaur Hunting in Western Canada

A Canadian expedition specifically organized to collect dinosaur fossils was conducted in 1898 and again in 1901 by Lawrence M. Lambe of the GSC. In 1901 he published the first detailed account of Alberta dinosaurs. This was good by the standards of the time, but did not reveal fully the richness of the Alberta deposits. This was first done by an American paleontologist, Barnum Brown, of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
