This contribution will provide a narrative account of the Kansas University paleontological expedition to the White River badlands in 1894. Led by the charismatic and inspirational teacher, Samuel Wendell Williston, the expedition included three students, Ermine Cowles Case, Elmer Samuel Riggs and Barnum Brown, each of whom would go on to become prominent vertebrate paleontologists at other institutions. This article will explore the role of fieldwork in establishing a paleontological career in late nineteenth and early twentieth century America.
