Vertebrate paleontologists with an interest in the Tertiary faunas of Texas
and northern Mexico, please note:

In late May of this year the collection of Miocene through Pliocene fossil
vertebrates that was amassed by Walter Dalquest during his years at
Midwestern State University was transferred to the Vertebrate Paleontology
Laboratory at the University of Texas in Austin.  It will be housed here as
the Walter Dalquest Midwestern University Collection, and will be available
for study on the same terms as our other collections.

The Pleistocene collections remain at Midwestern State University, in the
care of Dr. Fred Stangl (Biology Dept).

We would very much like to hear from anyone who has MWSU Miocene or Pliocene
specimens out on loan, with a list of what you have (including catalogue
numbers), approximately when you received it, and how long you expect to
keep it (as with all V.P. loans, we realize that "how long" may be difficult
to quantify, and subject to change).  This will help us to account for
specimens that should have been in what we received, but have not been found.

To save Walt the bother of boxing them up again and sending them to us, any
loans of MWSU specimens should be returned directly to the address below,
rather than to MWSU:

        Vertebrate Paleontology Lab
        University of Texas
        J.J. Pickle Research Campus
        10100 Burnet Road

For additional information, including arranging loans or visits to the
collection, contact collection manager Melissa Winans at the above address,
