This field book is part of a collection of field notes by Robert (Bob) A. Bartlett (1875-1946). Bartlett was born in Brigus, Newfoundland. He spent much of his career at sea in the Arctic, taking part in and later leading expeditions in the region. He commanded several vessels, but eventually became captain of his own vessel, the "Effie M. Morrissey" which conducted annual expeditions from 1926 to 1946 making hydrographic studies and collecting specimens for a number of museums across the United States, including U.S. National Museum, Museum of Natural History of Philadelphia, American Museum of Natural History, National Geographic Society, among others. These notes refer to specimens collected on the Effie M. Morrissey during a summer cruise in 1943.
