Descriptive Entry:
These records primarily document the management of animal collections at NZP from the late 1960s through the early 1980s, with a small amount of material covering the years before that date span. Included are administrative memoranda and correspondence concerning the acquisition, shipment, breeding, health, and feeding of the animals, as well as information on personnel, safety, budget, and research. Also included are annual reports, animal inventories, and keepers' reports.
Historical Note:
Prior to the early 1960s, management of the animal collections at the National Zoological Park (NZP) was primarily the responsibility of the animal keepers. In 1961, the Animal Department was created, with Waldfried T. Roth in charge as General Curator. Roth resigned in 1964, and Donald R. Dietlein was appointed Manager of the Department. The Animal Department was renamed the Department of Living Vertebrates in 1968, with Donald D. Bridgwater as Head. The Department of Living Vertebrates was abolished in 1971, and administration of the animal collection passed to Floris M. Garner, Assistant Director for Zoological Programs. Garner resigned the following year, and the Office of Animal Management (OAM) was created. Jaren G. Horsley was General Curator of OAM until 1979, when animal management was reorganized and became the Office of Animal Programs. At that time, John F. Eisenberg was appointed Assistant Director for Animal Programs. Eisenberg resigned his position in 1982.

Summary:
Prior to the early 1960s, management of the NZP animal collection was primarily the responsibility of the animal keeper force. In 1961, a professional zoologist, Waldfried T. Roth was appointed General Curator in charge of the Animal Department. Roth resigned in 1964, and Donald R. Dietlein was appointed Manager of the Animal Department. In 1968, the Department of Living Vertebrates (DLV) was created to manage the NZP animal collection. Donald D. Bridgewater was named Head of the new Department. Kerry A. Muller was given management of the Bird Division and Jaren G. Horsley was hired to direct the Reptile Division. DLV was abolished in 1971, and administration of the animal collection was given to Floris M. Garner, Assistant Director for Zoological Programs. Garner resigned the following year, and the Office of Animal Management (OAM) was created. Horsley was appointed General Curator of the new office.

Note:
Interviews conducted at both the NZP and CRC included staff members who participated in various programs to ensure species survival. Larry R. Collins received his B.A. in biology from Columbia Union College in 1965 and his M.S. in zoology from University of Maryland in 1973. He began his tenure with the NZP in 1967 as an animal keeper in the Scientific Research Division, and was appointed Supervisory Zoologist in that division in 1969. In 1972 he became Assistant Curator of the Department of Living Vertebrates at NZP, and from 1973 to 1975 he served as the Associate Curator for the Office of Animal Management. In 1975, Collins was appointed Mammal Curator at CRC.

Scott R. Derrickson completed his B.A. in biology in 1970 from Gettysburg College and his M.S. and Ph.D. in ecology and behavioral biology from University of Minnesota in 1975 and 1977, respectively. In 1977, he began work as a Research Behaviorist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and continued there until he was appointed Assistant Curator of ornithology at CRC in 1984. Later that same year, he was appointed Curator of ornithology. Since 1987, he has held that position concurrently with the position of Deputy Associate Director for Conservation and Captive Breeding.

Theodore H. Reed received his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Kansas State College in 1945. He taught veterinary pathology there before working as Assistant State Veterinarian for Oregon from 1946 to 1948. Between 1948 and 1955 Reed maintained a private veterinary practice in Idaho and Oregon. While practicing with the Rose City Veterinary Hospital in Portland, Reed was called upon to work with the Portland Zoo's animal collection which led to his career in exotic animal studies and zoo administration. Reed was appointed as a veterinarian for NZP in 1955. He became acting director of the NZP in 1956 and director in 1958. Reed retired from the directorship position in 1983.

Linwood R. Williamson received his B.S. in wildlife management from Virginia Polytechnic and State University in 1972. He came to CRC in 1978 and began working with birds, small mammals and hoofstock, as the Biotechnician in charge of the Ungulate Research Facilities.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting behavioral research performed by Department of Zoological Research staff and their associates relating to captive and wild animals. The majority of the records were created and maintained by Miles Roberts and primarily documents his research concerning tarsiers, chipmunks, shrews, kangaroo rats, red pandas, and other small mammals. Additional records were created by John Frederick Eisenberg, Gene Maliniak, Mike Davenport, David Kessler, and Lang Elliott. Materials include observation data, data analysis, notebooks, scientific papers, audiotapes, film, videotapes, photographic materials, procedures, correspondence, sketches, bibliographies, and related materials. Some materials were created by predecessor and other offices, including the Animal Department (through 1968), the Department of Living Vertebrates (1968-1971), the Scientific Research Department (through c. 1973), the Office of Animal Management (1972-1979), the Office of Zoological Research (c. 1973-1982), the Office of Animal Programs (1979-1984), and the Department of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985).
