Tan leather notebook, 4.5 X 7.25 inches, with a lot of rubbing wear to the covers and spine. Binding still holding firm. The student, Earl McCoy (Class of 1912), has written his name legibly at the top of the front cover. The embossed title on the front cover is Field Book 361. Inside the front cover is the notebook publisher's information-Keuffel and Esser Co., a seller of drawing materials and surveying equipment. A reference table for excavations and embankments is also included below the publisher information. The student's notes are neatly printed on more than 80 pages, followed by about 25 blank pages and then a few more pages of notes. The publisher has included ten pages of Keith's Railroad Curve Tables at the end of the book. Inside the rear cover is another printed table: Distances from Center of Roadway for Cross-Sectioning. The student's notes include surveys of the Ohio State University campus, noting buildings, streets and other landmarks at times. Between pages 63 and 64 a folded final examination for the 1909 fall semester is laid in. A rare and interesting look, from a surveying student's perspective, at parts of the Ohio State University campus as it existed more than one hundred years ago.
