National Museum of Natural History. Department of Paleobiology Search this
This series consists of the general subject files for the Department of Paleobiology
including incoming and outgoing correspondence, memoranda, and reports of both Smithsonian
and non-Smithsonian offices. Included in this series are advisory committee reviews of the
Department of Paleobiology for 1967 and 1982, material documenting the construction of both
the East Wing of the Natural History Building and the Museum Support Center, and
documentation of the Foreign Currency Program and the A. Remington Kellogg Memorial Fund.
In addition, members of the Department of Paleobiology traveled to Poland in 1968 to participate
in an important exchange program, and the preparations for this trip are well documented. The
activities of the Paleontology and Stratigraphy Branch of the United States Geological Survey,
which worked cooperatively with the Department of Paleobiology, are also extensively
documented here. These files are arranged alphabetically by subject, and titles are generally
derived from original folder titles. Some documents originally contained within this collection
were transferred to other series during archival processing.
