Martinsville Bulletin: Going Digital: Grant will help Martinsville museum put fossil collection online. “A grant from the Bureau of Land Management will allow the Virginia Museum of Natural History to catalogue an important fossil collection, soon making it accessible to anyone with internet access. VMNH Assistant Curator of Paleontology Dr. Alex Hastings said that the museum recently received a $43,289 grant from the Bureau of Land Management. According to Hastings, the grant will be used to catalogue and photograph a collection of nearly 5,000 fossil specimens, many of them collected in Montana in the 1990s by Dr. John Happ.”
