Walter Granger (1872-1941)

American Museum of Natural History curator in the vertebrate paleontology group during its early 20th century heyday. Granger frequently collaborated with fellow AMNH mammal paleontologists W. Gregory, W. Matthew, and G. Simpson, and carried out much of this period's best post-Cope and Marsh research on Paleocene and Eocene mammals from the Western Interior. He participated in many of the major AMNH field campaigns during this period, including the famous Mongolia expeditions of the 1920s that resulted in many key dinosaur discoveries. However, most of that material was described by others such as Gilmore and Osborn.
