Descriptive Entry:
These records primarily document the work of Frank M. Greenwell, Smithsonian Taxidermist 1957-1999. Greenwell retired in 1999 and had achieved the title of Chief, Taxidermy/Conservation, National Museum of Natural History, Office of Exhibits. Greenwell was also a member of the National Taxidermists Association. Materials include information on the mounting of the "Fenykovi" Elephant (displayed in the rotunda of the National Museum of Natural History); the "Hasinger" Bengal Tiger (displayed in the National Museum of Natural History); and the mounting of "Mungo" a baby elephant, by William Temple Hornaday, nineteenth century Smithsonian Taxidermist. There are additional information files regarding Smithsonian Taxidermists William Temple Hornaday and Carl Ethan Akeley. Other featured collectors and collections include Smithsonian's joint African safari with Theodore Roosevelt (1909-1910). This safari substantially increased Smithsonian's African collections. There is one box of reference photographs that mostly depict live animals in various attitudes, and natural habitats. These were used as models for the Taxidermists in creating life-like mounts and dioramas of natural scenes. In addition to the animal and landscape photos, there are also photos of people, including two of Osa and Martin Johnson. Materials include articles, brochures, correspondence, drawings, formulas, informational files, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, photographs, and sketches.
