    Hello everyone. I posted a picture of the old bighorn sheep diorama at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History on this site a few years ago. I was browsing the Internet Archive recently and came across these old magazine issues on microfilm. Here is the link to the page. https://archive.org/details/pub_carnegie

    Some issues contain information about natural history exhibits that may not exist at the museum anymore. I found the magazines very interesting.

    Greetings garjack94. Thanks for the link, I have xeroxes of the interesting articles and of course the whole run in my office at work. I still do not know who you are, but here is the link to the picture you posted before.


    John Phillips who was a good friend of William T. Hornaday shot one of the rams. The story can bee seen in Camp Fires in Desert and Lava pictured in a photo in the frontispiece by Phillips and the dead ram. and the story about it.


    The particular Carnegie Magazine article can be seen in Volume 8 issue four cover of issue and pages 109-110.

    I am just someone who is interested in history. The Internet Archive also has issues of the Field and American Museums' respective magazines. The Field Museum Bulletin issues from the 1930s always seemed to have a then new diorama on the cover page.
