Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of the "Cerro Ballena" website as it existed on December 17, 2019. Cerro Ballena is a unique paleontological site located in the Atacama Region of Chile. In 2010, paleontologists discovered a rich fossil site containing dozens of whale skeletons, along with the remains of other extinct marine mammals and other marine vertebrates. In 2011, paleontologists from Chile and the United States conducted rapid documentation and digitization of this site. This website provides information about the site and the project which was led by Nicholas D. Pyenson, Research Geologist in the National Museum of Natural History, Department of Paleobiology. The Digitization Program Office within the Smithsonian Institution, Office of the Chief Information Officer, provided three-dimensional digitization support for the project. This accession also includes server files for the website. Materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
These papers document Emlong's work as a collector of marine mammal fossils, his association with NMNH, and his personal life. Included is correspondence between Emlong and NMNH paleontologists A. Remington Kellogg and Clayton E. Ray documenting his early interest in fossil collecting and the development and sale of his collection; field notes and collecting records; photographs and slides of Emlong, his family, and his art work; manuscripts, mostly fictional, written by Emlong; tapes and sheet music of songs written and performed by Emlong; biographical information, newspaper clippings, and obituaries; high school papers; oversize oil paintings by Emlong; and a copy of the NMNH accession record for the Emlong collection.
Historical Note:
Douglas Ralph Emlong (1942-1980) was an amateur collector of marine mammal fossils. He amassed a large collection of fossils from the vicinity of his home on the Oregon coast and later sold them to the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in 1971. The collection included fifteen new species of marine mammals and two previously unknown families. He continued to collect for NMNH until his death, and for many years his work was supported by the Smithsonian Research Foundation. Emlong was also an amateur artist and lyricist.
