Corps loans T-Rex to Smithsonian Institution
One of the Army's two Tyrannosaurus Rex specimens, identified as the Wankel T-Rex, was discovered by Kathy and Tom Wankel in 1988, while fishing near the Nelson Creek Recreation Area at Fort Peck Reservoir, Mont. Fort Peck Reservoir is managed by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District. The Corps' Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections, in the St. Louis District—which is one of the largest single organizations in the Department of Defense dedicated to addressing heritage assets—has assisted with the loan document and curatorial issues associated with this very important paleontological treasure.
