Hi folks! This week I’m happy to report that I’ve scanned ten Willis S. Jones field notebooks. Only five more in the box!


And not a moment too soon, because the binding on some of these notebooks is in rough shape. The most fragile so far is from 1914 and looks about ready to fall apart:




Once this box is done, there are additional boxes of field notebooks to scan! I don’t know how many! Aficionados of well water levels during the early 1900s in Chino and Riverside, rejoice!

Update: Turns out this was my tenth blog entry. Coincidence? I think… yeah, probably.
