Beginning in the field season of 1947, and continuing for 21 years, Orr conducted archaeological, paleontological and geological field work on Santa Rosa Island. This extensive field work had its beginning before the war when Orr, piloted by Miss Bessie Owen, made a preliminary aerial survey of Santa Rosa Island for the purpose of determining the extent of the fossil elephant beds. After the war, the September 1947 Museum Leaflet reported Phil Orr's work on Santa Rosa Island was being carried on under a grant from the Vail & Vickers Company made possible through the personal interest of Mr. Ed Vail. Air transportation was provided by David Gray and George Hammond in their private planes. By the end of his first season, Orr had provided the Museum with many fossil elephant bones, encased and transported in plaster and burlap, from which a composite skeleton was eventually assembled.
