Local Note:
Prints of photographs taken during the expedition are in the archives (uncatalogued). Some of the negatives, numbering (not always consecutively) from approximately 40060 to to 40300, are on file in the MNH and MHT photo labs; records show that negatives 40015-40021 were destroyed in 1951.
Although a note with the manuscript seemed to indicate that it had been microfilmed, no microfilm was located in 1969 and no related manuscripts were found.
