Scope and Contents:
Caption "? can see what's going on. Water glass is built into this paddleboard used by the life guards at Santa Monica, California. With the plate glass fitted into the bottom of the hollow paddleboard and an eye piece fitted to the top, the old style water-box is dispensed with for viewing the ocean bottom. Operating just like a miniature gales bottom boat the Santa Monica guards use it for locating lost anchors and cables in the yacht harbor and for any work requiring a quick search of the bottom at any depth up to 30 or 40 feet if necessary. The new device is expected to be adapted in many quarters for individual sight seeing of submarine gardens. It is the invention of Captian Charles H. Watkins, Chief of the Santa Monica Lifeguard Corps. The photo shows his son demonstrating the new board" 8X26R Publishers Photo Service.

Curators' Annual Reports

Manuscripts
Date:
1881-1964
Descriptive Entry:
The administration of the United States National Museum required curators to submit regular reports on the activities of the departments, divisions, and sections. Prior to about 1900 these reports were often made monthly and semiannually as well as annually. The reports were traditionally submitted to the Director of the National Museum to be used in preparing the published Annual Report of the United States National Museum. The individual reports, however, were not reproduced in their entirety in the published Annual Report and generally contain more information than is to be found in the published version.

Reports were stored by the Office of Correspondence and Reports (later known as the Office of Correspondence and Documents), and then by the Office of the Registrar.

Includes reports submitted to the Director of the United States National Museum by curators and administrators.
