CyPix: in a canoe

Where would you like to be on a warm summer day in August? Slipping quietly along the edge of a lake with birds singing overhead and fish moving in and out of the shadow of your canoe?

As the author of Muskrat Populations, which was awarded the Iowa State University Press award for faculty publications, Paul Errington may well have spent many an afternoon in a canoe, doing field research on this semi-aquatic rodent. Errington, Professor of Zoology at Iowa State University, came to the university to establish and lead the first Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit in the United States. See what more the University Archives holds on Errington (RS 13/25/51) and the Iowa Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit (RS 9/10/4).
