Description:
Sixteen-year-old Judy Garland wore these sequined shoes as Dorothy Gale in the 1939 film classic The Wizard of Oz. In the original book by L. Frank Baum, Dorothy's magic slippers are silver; for the Technicolor movie, they were changed to ruby red to show up more vividly against the yellow-brick road. One of several pairs used during filming, these size-five shoes are well-worn, suggesting they were Garland's primary pair for dance sequences.

Abstract:
This field book contains field notes on birds taken from 3 July 1958 to 14 January 1959. Notes contain lists of various birds spotted in Virginia. The majority of notes probably were taken in Falls Church. Many notes were taken "in yard", probably referring to Eike's own yard. Notes were also taken in Washington, D.C. and on 7-22-58 possibly in Virginia Beach. Other locations may be included. Notes occasionally include weather and temperature information, quantity, time spotted, and the sex of the birds.
