CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE SMITHSONIAN, UNITED STATES NATIONAL MUSEUM, AND OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, 1887-1929.

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series includes incoming correspondence documenting the administration of the Division of Mollusks by the Smithsonian Institution and United States National Museum. It also contains correspondence illustrating relations between the Division and the United States Bureau of Fisheries, the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the United States Department of Agriculture, and various other government agencies.

The correspondence with Smithsonian officials mostly concerns basic administrative matters. Letters with staff of government agencies document cooperative efforts to collect and identify specimens; William H. Dall's official duties as a paleontologist with the USGS; and the work of Charles Wardell Stiles and Brayton Howard Ransome as honorary custodians of the USNM helminthological collections.

Many of the correspondents listed here are represented by letters in Series 1.
