Mammalia in interglacial deposits.

May I be permitted to ask aid from some American contributor to Science who follows the lore of glacial geology? I learn that some American glacialists are satisfied that there have been two periods of glaciation, and I would inquire whether the interglacial deposits contain, like those of Switzerland, remains of mammalia, and if so, what they are. Any reference to American evidence on these points would oblige
