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.
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, a branch of paleontology that deals with the origin and growth and structure of fossil animals and plants as living organisms .
