BULLETIN 44 VOLUME I JUNE, 1935:
During the summer of 1929, the writer, accompanied by Mr. Paul O. McGrew of the University of Nebraska, discovered during the course of excavations for fossil vertebrates in northern Brown County, Nebraska, a fairly complete peccary skull referable to the genus Prosthennops. This skull, due to its several unusual characters, as well as to its fair degree of completeness, would seem to warrant a special and a rather detailed description. Consequently the specimen has been kindly turned over to me by Dr. E. H. Barbour, Director of the Nebraska State Museum, not only for the purpose of the present description, but also as a supplementary aid in an extended study of the North American fossil Tayassuidae. I wish to acknowledge here my thanks to Dr. Barbour for the opportunity of studying this skull.
