The DNR geology blog wrote about their collection of geologist notebooks that were put online recently. There is also a more graphical story about the notebooks
If you are into mines, this really is a treasure trove of information.
Of course I went after the Middle Fork information and found some gems. Here a geologist visited Camp 15 and didn't like what he found. Camp 15 was a North Bend Timber Company logging railroad camp about 1 mile past the Mailbox trailhead. There's no trace of it left there now. These old notebooks must have been transcribed because I'm sure this font was not available in 1936! That's probably a good thing because the ones that are hand written are often unreadable.
