"Under the above title are grouped various parts of a detailed, comprehensive work which was issued under a variety of cover-titles at irregular intervals in a most confusing manner. The entire work is extremely puzzling as to arrangement and method of appearance and I can find no complete and accurate collation of the various components."--Zimmer cat., p. 505

Notes:
The paleontological collections of the United States National Museum (USNM) were located in the Department of Geology from its creation in 1880 until its dissolution in 1963. The Department of Paleobiology was created in 1963 as part of a reorganization in the National Museum of Natural History. At that time the Department of Geology was divided into two departments, with the Divisions of Invertebrate Paleontology and Paleobotany and Vertebrate Paleontology joined to form the Department of Paleobiology, while the Division of Mineralogy and Petrology became the Department of Mineral Sciences. G. Arthur Cooper became the first Chairman of the Department of Paleobiology in 1963 and served until 1967. Other Chairmen included Porter M. Kier, 1967-1972; Richard E. Grant, 1972-1977; Martin A. Buzas, 1977-1982; and Ian G. MacIntyre, 1982- .
Summary:
This record unit documents the activities of the Department of Paleobiology from its establishment in 1963 until 1984. Records prior to 1963 were mostly created by the Division of Invertebrate Paleontology and Paleobiology, Department of Geology, and extensively document the curatorial career of G. Arthur Cooper. Chairmen of the Department of Paleobiology represented in the records include Cooper, Porter M. Kier, Richard E. Grant, Martin A. Buzas, and Ian G. MacIntyre. Records document research and professional activities of curators and other staff scientists; budget planning and other administrative matters; departmental reviews; plans for the movement of collections to the east wing of the National Museum of Natural History during the 1960s and the Museum Support Center in the 1980s; cooperative relations with the Paleontology and Stratigraphy Branch, United States Geological Survey; establishment of the A. Remington Kellogg Memorial Fund; and exhibitions, including the Exhibits Modernization Program at the USNM.
Records include annual reports; budget estimates and plans of operation; research proposals and progress reports; administrative files of the Department of Paleobiology; subject files maintained by the Department of Paleobiology and the Division of Invertebrate Paleontology and Paleobotany, Department of Geology; correspondence and memoranda with Smithsonian bureaus, offices and staff; a correspondence file of Chairman Martin A. Buzas; correspondence files of the Division of Invertebrate Paleontology and Paleobotany, Department of Geology, mostly concerning the identification and acquisition of specimens; exhibition scripts; blueprints and drawings, mostly of specimen storage cases; and outgoing memoranda of Richard S. Boardman, a curator in the Department of Paleobiology, which concern his research and professional activities.

Remington Kellogg, director of the U. S. National Museum from 1948 to 1962, was a devoted naturalist from an early age, eventually acquiring his Ph.D. in vertebrate paleontology and joining the Washington, D.C.­­–based U. S. Bureau of Biological Survey in 1921, before becoming an assistant curator at the Smithsonian's U. S. National Museum (now National Museum of Natural History) in 1928. He ultimately rose to the position of museum director and served concurrently as an Assistant Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution.

One of Kellogg's correspondents was Franklin Metcalf, who worked as an assistant biologist with the Bureau of Biological Survey both before and after World War I. From 1923 to 1928 Metcalf was a professor of botany at Fukien Christian University, originally a missionary school in China that is now part of Fujian Normal University, located in Fuzhou, Fujian Province. In 1931 he received his Ph.D. in systematic botany from Cornell University, and held a fellowship at Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum before being inducted into the Air Force in 1942.

With Chinese New Year upon us, these letters from the A. Remington Kellogg Papers, written by Metcalf and his wife, Mabel, from Fuzhou during their time in China are of particular interest. The letters are on exceptionally beautiful paper, with a soft texture and clearly visible chain and laid lines from the mold used to form the sheets. Wonderfully detailed botanical images are printed, likely with wood blocks, on the writing side of each page, and each features a small vermilion seal stamp. These letters give us a fascinating look at the stationery available in 1920s China.

Kellogg and Metcalf were both colleagues and friends, as these letters demonstrate: the first, written on smaller paper, is in fact from Mabel Truss Metcalf to Kellogg's wife, Marguerite Henrich, whom Mabel addresses as "Mrs. Kellogg," and the letter is full of chatty news about their recent move to China for Metcalf's position at the university, including a reference to the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 in Japan. The second letter is from Metcalf to Kellogg (who is addressed by Metcalf in other correspondence as "Kelly") and contains holiday greetings in addition to a request for assistance in compiling a reference library of systematic botany his students.

Notes:
The Department of Mammals of the United States National Museum was created in 1880. Prior to that time, the Smithsonian held an extensive collection of mammals which had been obtained from the private collection of Spencer F. Baird, from the United States Exploring Expedition and other government explorations, and from the collections of the National Institute, which was dissolved in 1861. Upon the formation of the Department, Elliott Coues was appointed Honorary Curator of Mammals. He continued as Honorary Curator until Frederick William True became Curator in 1883. In 1897, a major reorganization of the Museum made the Department a division within the new Department of Biology; and True became Head Curator of Biology. True also remained Curator of Mammals until 1909. In 1898, Gerrit Smith Miller, Jr., was appointed Assistant Curator of Mammals and from 1908 until his retirement in 1940 served as Curator. Other staff members of the Division of Mammals have included Marcus Ward Lyon, Jr., Aid, 1898-1906, and Assistant Curator, 1906-1909; Ned Hollister, Assistant Curator, 1910-1916; A. Remington Kellogg, Assistant Curator, 1928-1941, and Curator, 1941-1948; David H. Johnson, Associate Curator, 1941-1957, and Curator, 1957-1967; Raymond Maurice Gilmore, Associate Curator, 1944-1947; Henry W. Setzer, Associate Curator, 1949-1969, and Curator, 1969- ; Charles O. Handley, Jr., Assistant Curator, 1950-1954, Associate Curator, 1954-1965,and Curator, 1965- ; and Richard W. Thorington, Jr., Associate Curator, 1969- .
Summary:
The records contain the correspondence of the Division staff and are chiefly concerned with identification, loan, and acquisition of specimens; requests for information from scientists and the public; expeditions, field trips, and collectors; research being carried out by the staff; and administration of the Division. Also included in the records are annual reports and invoices of the Division, circa 1867-1951; manuscripts of Miller and Lyon, consisting mostly of descriptions and revisions of classifications which were apparently published; and collected biographical information on and photographs of prominent naturalists and scientists, including a significant amount of material on John Muir.
