Scope and Contents

Papers concern career of Lehmann (b. 1913), biologist and wildlife manager for the King Ranch in South Texas from 1945 to 1972. A noted authority on bobwhite quail, Attwater's prairie chicken, and sheep of the Rio Grande plain of Texas, Lehmann dealt with wildlife ecology, habitat management, hunter regulation, and predator control. Papers include correspondence, professional research reports, biological surveys, field notes, scientific publications, drawings and maps, journals, and books, as well as Lehmann's own notes, studies, reports, and publications, particularly material related to his books Forgotten Legions: Sheep in the Rio Grande Plain of Texas, and Bobwhites in the Rio Grande Plain of Texas.
