This work, which includes information about Arizona’s State Amphibian (Hyla eximia, the Arizona treefrog or Mountain treefrog), is part of the important Smithsonian series, Bulletin of the United States National Museum. The Libraries holds a comprehensive collection of Smithsonian publications stretching back to the first publication of the Institution in 1848. This item, Bulletin no.160, was written by noted Smithsonian scientist, Remington Kellogg, who would go on to serve as Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and later Assistant Secretary of the Institution. The Arizona treefrog was first described scientifically by the Smithsonian's then Assistant Secretary, Spencer Baird, in 1854. Baird would later go on to be the Institution's Second Secretary.
