Descriptive Entry:
The papers of Isaac Ginsburg chiefly document his career with the Bureau of Fisheries from 1922 to 1956. There is extensive correspondence concerning the fishes of the Gulf coast, ichthyological nomenclature, and Ginsburg's war work, as well as Bureau of Fisheries affairs. The collection also contains materials concerning Bureau investigations that were probably sent to Ginsburg in connection with his research. This material includes notes and logs of William W. Welsh and Samuel Frederick Hildebrand on their investigations in New England and the Gulf of Mexico and photographs, probably of Hildebrand's work in Central America and the southern United States.

Historical Note:
Isaac Ginsburg (1886-1975) was born in Lithuania and came to the United States as a boy. He studied ichthyology at Cornell University and after graduating, spent a short time as an aid in the Division of Fishes, United States National Museum, in 1917. In 1922, he received an appointment with the Bureau of Fisheries and worked there until his retirement in 1956.

Ginsburg's chief scientific interest was the marine fishes of the Gulf of Mexico. Though at one time he intended to prepare a large work on the shore fishes of the Gulf, necessary revisionary work on those groups took up most of his time. In addition, he worked on the problem of species and their subdivisions. Other duties at the Bureau of Fisheries included handling of the correspondence concerning marine fishes and war work in connection with the coordination of fisheries in 1943-1944.

Note:
The notes in this series are not necessarily those of Isaac Ginsburg. The only authors identified are William W. Welsh and J. V. Green. It is probable that these notes were sent to Ginsburg by the Bureau in connection with his work on Gulf coast fishes, as most of them deal with that area.
