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.
The itinerary, compiled in 1948, documents Koelz's plant explorations in Ceylon, India, Afghanistan, and Iran from 1936 to 1941.
Walter Norman Koelz (1895-1989), zoologist and botanist, was born in Waterloo, Michigan. He received an A.B. degree from Olivet College in 1915, and his A.M. and Ph.D.
degrees from the University of Michigan in 1917 and 1920, respectively. In 1919, Koelz held the position of Curator of Fishes at the Museum of Zoology at Michigan. From 1919
to 1927, and again in 1930, Koelz worked for the United States Bureau of Fisheries. From 1935 to 1941, and from 1947 to 1949, Koelz was a plant explorer for the United States
Department of Agriculture.
