Measurements

These items are charts that record various measurements taken in the field from the collected specimens. They began as hand drawn field notes, and slowly evolved to standard, pre-printed charts. The specimen measurement charts were developed out of necessity to ensure the transfer of accurate measurements from the specimen to the clay model and subsequently to the fibreglass armature so the pelt from a particular specimen would fit perfectly on its frame.
