Excerpt from North American Quaternary Canis
The research required in preparation of this paper necessitated considerable travel to museums and other localities throughout North America. I therefore am especially grateful to those organizations that aided me in this regard. The Theodore Roosevelt Me morial Fund of the American Museum of Natural History, and the National Science Foundation each made a direct grant for travel and related expenses. The Committee on Systematics and Evolutionary Biology, University of Kansas, provided travel grants in 1970 and 1971, a research assistantship in the summer of 1972, and also a traineeship for the academic year 1971-1972.
No progress could have been made in my research had it not been for the cooperation of numerous persons who generously assisted me in the examination of specimens and asso ciated materials in their care. I want to especially thank John L. Paradiso, Bird and Mammal Laboratories, United States National Museum of Natural History (now of the Office of Endangered Species, us. Fish and Wildlife Service). During the four months that my wife and I worked at the National Museum, he aided us in every 'way possible and spent a great deal of his own time to see that we were well provided for both in and out of the Museum. John and I actually have been in close communication regarding Cam's since 1965. Many of the views expressed in this paper were developed jointly with him in the course of years of pleasant study, con versation, and correspondence.
I am also grateful to the following per sons who either sent me specimens on loan or assisted me when I visited their areas: Sydney Anderson, American Museum of Nat ural History; Rollin H. Baker, The Museum.
