Abstract: The Blue Horizontal Branch (BHB) stars are valuable tracers of the Galactic Halo. A pure sample of these stars is needed to determine the local halo density and establish the local morphology of the horizontal branch. This paper gives the provisional results of a program to provide such a sample.
