JOURNALS AND NOTEBOOKS OF EDWARD WILLIAM NELSON, 1877-1930 AND UNDATED

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series consists of journals and notebooks documenting field work and official travel of Edward William Nelson. Especially well documented is his ethnological and natural history field work in Alaska, 1877-1881; his participation on the Corwin Expedition, 1881; and his field explorations of Mexico with Edward Alphonso Goldman, 1892-1902. The journals from his Mexico work, 1903-1906, are missing. The Alaska and Mexico journals offer a narrative of day-to-day activities and include information on specimens collected; observations on native peoples and their folklore, legends, religion, vocabulary, and other aspects of their culture; sketches of people, villages, fauna, and natural phenomena; and notes on the fauna, flora, and physiography of regions explored. There are typescript copies of the Mexico journals, 1892-1895.

Also included are journals and notebooks kept by Nelson on many official trips taken for the Bureau of Biological Survey; a journal from the Death Valley Expedition, 1890-1891; and miscellaneous notebooks and address books.

Arranged (mostly) alphabetically.

Curators' Annual Reports

Type:

Manuscripts
Date:
1881-1964
Descriptive Entry:
The administration of the United States National Museum required curators to submit regular reports on the activities of the departments, divisions, and sections. Prior to about 1900 these reports were often made monthly and semiannually as well as annually. The reports were traditionally submitted to the Director of the National Museum to be used in preparing the published Annual Report of the United States National Museum. The individual reports, however, were not reproduced in their entirety in the published Annual Report and generally contain more information than is to be found in the published version.

Reports were stored by the Office of Correspondence and Reports (later known as the Office of Correspondence and Documents), and then by the Office of the Registrar.

Includes reports submitted to the Director of the United States National Museum by curators and administrators.
