A small collection of letters, receipts, photographs, and notes removed from Brigger's book collection form this manuscript
Albert Leon Brigger (1892-1981) was born in Ohio, and lived most of his life in California, residing in Yucaipa. He was a
Research Associate at California Academy of Sciences and collaborated on diatom research with G. Dallas Hanna and York Mandra
of Cal Academy and Robert Holmes of UCSB. During his lifetime, he published 23 articles that included 48 new species descriptions.
In 1977, Brigger gave his collection of over 26,000 slides of marine and fossil diatoms to Cal Academy. He gave his book collection
of more than 300 titles to Robert Holmes who in turn donated it to the Cheadle Center at University of California, Santa Barbara.
