Preliminary work was carried on in 1940 for the University Museum of Philadelphia, at a buried Yuma site, near Eden, Wyoming, under the direction of Mr. Linton Satterthwaite. This work was continued in the summer of 1941 sponsored jointly by the University Museum and the Nebraska State Museum. The party in 1941 included Frank J. Dudek, and L. Robert Wolfe from the latter institution, and Dr. John T. Hack, Robert P. Howard and Edgar B. Howard representing the University Museum. Dr. Hack, of Hofstra College, carried on the geological work, the results of which appear in the following part of this report. F. J. Dudek and R. P. Howard assisted Dr. Hack in the topographic work from time to time. Mr. O. M. Finley, formerly of Eden, Wyoming, who discovered the site, and through Mr. Harold J. Cook of Agate, Nebraska, brought it to our attention, spent as much time with us as he could, without interfering with his Government duties. We wish to take this opportunity to thank him for what he did to help us in so many ways. We also wish to thank Dr. W. H. Bradley, of the U. S. Geological Survey, for his interest and suggestions when he visited the site.
