Category:
Historic Images of the Smithsonian
Notes:
Kjell Bloch Sandved of the Office of Exhibits, National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), at the commission of Porter Kier, then Director, NMNH, prepared these photographic materials to document personnel and activities of NMNH in 1975.
For other images of Frank Greenwell, see Negatives SIA2013-03955 through SIA2013-03960.
Summary:
Francis M., "Frank," Greenwell, taxidermist, museum specialist in collections management, wearing a green lab coat is in a collections storage and work area at the National Museum of Natural History, Department of Zoology, and holds in his hand a wet vertebrate specimen (probably a bat) he has taken from an open jar. Other jars containing specimens sit on the table and on shelves behind him.
Greenwell joined the staff of the Smithsonian in 1957, and soon found himself part of the team that prepared the Fénykövi Elephant for exhibition. His work did not keep him solely in the taxidermy studio. Greenwell went on scientific expeditions all over the world-collecting everything from a tiny shrew to the skulls of twelve gray whales. Later, Greenwell found that he preferred to capture the natural world with a camera and developed his skills as a nature photographer.
