William E. Weiss Memorial Fund Purchase
After the completion of his magnificent publication on the birds of America, Audubon began plans for a similar publication on mammals. In order to study the large mammals, Audubon needed to travel to the far West. In 1843 he traveled up the Missouri River to Fort Union. Audubon carried this proof and presentation plate with him on the journey to show to people he met and develop interest in his publication.
