Special Publication No. 1
This publication is a compilation of Emilio Budin’s field notes made during his Chaco Expedition (1906–1907), in addition to unpublished information and documents related to his collaboration with British naturalist Oldfield Thomas.
These original notes illustrate several aspects of Argentina at that time, when roads to new territories were opened to colonization and conquest. This Special Publication shows different aspects of Emilio Budin’s personality, little known until now. It also presents detailed information on the expedition’s route, showing localities and towns, several of which were founded at the time when the expeditions were traveling along this path.
Budin worked mostly as a collector for the British Museum of Natural History in London and the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales in Buenos Aires, where he established a solid working relationship with José Yepes. Budin’s contacts included other museums in Argentina, Europe and North America. Thanks to his work, Olfield Thomas described 96 new forms of mammals including four genera, 86 of them from Argentina.
