mummified snout (part of upper jaw, with skin and teeth)
Collected by Manly Hardy in the 1880's for a bounty. Paul F. Eckstorm (son-in-law of Manly Hardy, married Manly's daughter Fannie Hardy) gave this snout to Ralph S Palmer (RPS 825) in 1946. MCZ Mammalogy received this specimen from RS Palmer in May 1954. A 13 January 2000 conversation between TM McFadden (MCZ Mammalogy Curatorial Assistant) and RS Palmer stated that Manly Hardy collected this wolf snout probably no later that the 1880's. See RS Palmer card files and Dept. notes. JM Chupasko, 11 August 2011
