Descriptive Entry:
These papers include correspondence, statistics, and material generated and collected by the Biological Survey in its administration of the inventory from 1928 to 1940. For similar records, see Record Unit 7146.
Historical Note:
By letter of September 26, 1923, the Chief of the Bureau of Biological Survey requested from the National Park Service yearly "information as to the number of the different kinds of big game animals in the various national parks, for use in reissuance of lists of national and state game and bird refuges." In 1937, the Biological Survey began annual inventories of big game throughout the country, compiling these statistics from estimates of the National Park Service, Forest Service, and its own field agents and cooperative units.

Date:
circa 1892-1906
Scope and Contents note:
Studio portraits of Indigenous people of Mexico and one image of a coffee plantation. The photographs were probably collected by Edward William Nelson during his field studies in Mexico with Edward Alphonso Goldman, 1892-1906.
Biographical/Historical note:
Edward William Nelson (1855-1934) was an explorer and naturalist for the United States government known for his studies in Alaska, California and Mexico. Born near Manchester, New Hampshire, Nelson grew up with an ardent interest in birds and the outdoors. With the help of Henry W. Henshaw and Smithsonian Assistant Secretary Spencer F. Baird, he gained a post as a weather observer with the Signal Corps in 1877. Nelson was stationed in St. Michael, Alaska, for the next four years, during which time he collected ethnological data and natural history collections for the Smithsonian Institution. In 1890, Nelson joined the Bureau of Biological Survey of the United States Department of Agriculture as a Special Field Agent on the Death Valley Expedition of Clinton Hart Merriam. After this Expedition disbanded in 1891, Nelson continued to work in California under orders from the Bureau and met his future expedition partner Edward Alphonso Goldman. A three month field survey in Mexico in 1892 evolved into fourteen years of research by the pair, during which they made extensive investigations of Mexican mammalogy, ornithology, and ethnology. Following these studies, Nelson moved into an administrative role in the Bureau, holding appointments as Chief Field Naturalist, 1907-1912; Assistant in Charge of Biological Investigations, 1913-1914; Assistant Chief, 1914-1916; Chief, 1916-1927; and Senior Biologist, 1927-1929.
