The handwritten report "Greenland Expedition of 1937" documents Robert A. Bartlett's work for the Smithsonian Institution. The report was written to Waldo Schmitt as the Curator of Marine Invertebrates. Includes information about crew, what types of specimens they were collecting and for which institutions, and equipment (loaned by Smithsonian Institution). He details the trip from New York via Nantucket to the expedition sites, discusses changes in terrain from previous years' explorations, locations where they collected, weather and sea conditions on way to chosen locations, and types of marine life observed. Locations include the vicinity of Détroit de Northumberland, Hakluyt, and Smith Sound.
