"Limnological Investigations of Skadar Lake (Yugoslavia)." Project Files, 1971-1977.
Initiated in 1972, "Limnological Investigations of Skadar Lake (Yugoslavia)" was a cooperative research project conducted by the Oceanography and Limnology Program
(OLP) and the Biological Institute of Titograd, Yugoslavia. The project was funded by the Smithsonian Foreign Currency Program, with Robert P. Higgins as principal American
investigator. After OLP was terminated in 1974, the project continued to be administered by Higgins and Catherine J. Kerby until January 1975. The objectives of the project
were to survey the physical, chemical, biological and geological composition of Skadar Lake and develop a capability for management of the lake and its drainage basin.
This series consists of records, maintained by Higgins and Kerby, documenting the operation of the project and includes general correspondence, 1971-1977; files on project
personnel, 1972-1975; project proposals and progress reports, 1972-1974; fiscal records, 1972-1975; trip reports, 1973-1974; photographs, mostly of project personnel, 1973;
maps; and publications concerning the project.
