This field book is part of a collection of Waldo L. Schmitt papers. Schmitt was a carcinologist. He participated in many field trips and expeditions to observe crustaceans in the USA and around the world. Sponsored by a grant from the Office of Naval Research, Schmitt spent the summers of 1961 and 1962 with Harry Pederson photographing the coral reef fauna of the Bahamas. The field book is the second of a set of two on that summer trip. The stations of the field trip are mainly in the Clifton Bay area and Lyford Cay, Nassau, Bahamas. Dates range from July 24 to August 17, 1961.
