Description One of five neatly-written journals recording the travels over the South Pacific and California. Contains illustrations of islands and animal life, maps, and other interesting details. "California and Other Places," begins 22 September 1929 and continues through 19 August 1933. As the journal begins, Quayle is herding sheep for his father in Pine Canyon, Fremont County, Idaho. He and his second wife, Mary Emma, are about to move to California. He is "returning to science and education" at Stanford University. In Book 3 we learn of the birth of his daughter, Colleen on 15 June 1931 (p. 17), that he had jumped ship on the 2nd voyage of the France (p. 66), he had a paper printed (p. 119), two species of plants named for him (p. 206); and his second divorce became final (p. 126). He made field trips and expresses his interest in outdoor work as opposed to laboratory research. He moves to the Los Angeles area doing work with UCLA and Scripps at San Diego. Some of his poetry is included in this volume
