Description:
This collection consists chiefly of photographs of landscapes and plants taken by Rock on collecting trips to China and Tibet, 1922-1929. The Rock Specimen Catalog, located in the Botany Library of the National Museum of Natural History, includes a list of plants collected, 1921-1924, and identification of plants taken, 1928-1929. Also in the Botany Department are manuscript maps prepared by Rock showing his itinerary, 1925-1927. The collection comes with an introduction written by E. H. Walker, Assistant Curator, July 1944, partially quoted below: These photographs were taken by Joseph F. Rock on his expedition to western China under the auspices of the National Geographic Society in 1923-1924 and in 1928. They were generously presented to the U. S. National Museum by the Society through the kind auspices of Dr. Rock in 1944, because of their value in supplementing the herbarium material presented to the Museum by the Society after the expeditions. Most of them are photographs of plants in their natural habitat, taken previous to the preparation of the herbarium specimens. They may not be reproduced without obtaining permission from the National Geographic Society and must be accompanied by the Society's copyright when published. Wherever the legend mentions a herbarium specimen, a corresponding reference appears on the U. S. National Herbarium sheet giving the National geographic society's negative number. These numbers are different from Dr. Rock's original negative numbers, which are not generally used.

Abstract:
William and Lucile Mann travel with the National Geographic Society-Smithsonian Institution Expedition to the Dutch East Indies in 1937. William Mann collects a birds, animals and reptiles, a list and quantity of which is recorded at the end of the diary. While traveling, they meet with local officials, visit pertinent local institutions (zoos, etc). The diary is a typed account kept by Lucile Mann, arranged by date, and provides location changes; descriptions of daily activities; explanations of collecting efforts; issues with securing, caring for, and transporting them; and observations. Some specimens were collected, others purchased from collectors or governments. Lucile includes notes of interest handwritten on the backside of the typed pages. These include short stories, word definitions, and additional descriptions of events.

Abstract:
Rafinesque's descriptive specimen list of fish, shells, turtles, mammals, insects, plants, and fungi collected during a field trip in 1818. This item includes numerous detailed drawings of specimen collected, especially fish. Rafinesque often uses the abbreviation "NG," probably indicating what he thinks is a "new genus." Most of the text is in French, but identifications use the English common name and a taxonomic name, and some specimen entries are in English. Some illustrations of specimen include measurements. Also included are many hand drawn maps with location names and some topographical information. Although the original archival description suggests Rafinesque began the trip in Philadelphia, earlier entries in this notebook find him in New York, and perhaps farther north. Locations Rafinesque visited various locations in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, New York, and the District of Columbia. Some locations in Pennsylvania include but are not limited to Gettysburg, Bedford, Chambersburg, and Todd. This book is also referred to as "Notes N. 17."

Abstract:
The scrapbook was compiled by Lucile Mann, from materials gathered relating to a trip to Argentina and Brazil (1939), for the purposes of collecting and exchanging live animals with zoos in South America. Materials in the scrapbook cover sites throughout Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) and Argentina (Buenos Aires, Córdoba, La Plata, Lake Nahuel Huapi). The scrapbook appears to be arranged chronologically, and included news clippings, menus, photographs, passenger lists, postcards, original artwork (by Newbery),and advertisements for theatrical events. Journalist William H. Shippen of Washington D.C.'s Evening Star, followed the trip and wrote a series of general interest stories relating to it, which have been included. There are also clippings from Argentinean newspapers. Most photographs with captions. Subject matter includes: farewell dinner; leisure time by the pool on the ship to South America; Buenos Aires Zoo; Córdoba Zoo; La Plata Zoo; buffalo crate; informal images of expedition members and local officials (some identified); the loading of coffee on ships at harbor; general scenes of the local sites and cities visited; and a visit to the Angostura brewery.

Abstract:
This item documents Bailey's collecting efforts in Minnesota and Ontario, Canada in 1905 and field notes kept on trips to Michigan and Minnesota during 1907. The first 5 pages are from 1905 and the remainder of the book documents Bailey's study of wolves in Minnesota and Michigan in March and April of 1907. The field book is comprised primarily of specimen lists of plants and animals identified by genus and species. Common names are sometimes included in specimen lists. Bailey indicates gender of mammals taken from the field and sometimes indicates that fetuses are present in the specimen taken. The item also includes very brief lists from a few other states including Ohio and Wisconsin.
