Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of materials documenting the research and professional activities of conservation biologist Devra G. Kleiman, 1942-2010. Kleiman received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago in 1964 and her doctorate from the University of London in 1969. In 1972, she became one of the first female scientists at the National Zoological Park (NZP) where she was hired to manage the zoo's captive breeding program. In 1982, Kleiman became Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs in the Office of Animal Programs, assuming the position permanently the following year. During a series of reorganizations, Kleiman became the Assistant Director of Zoological Research and Education in 1984; the Assistant Director of Research in 1985; and the Assistant Director of Zoological Research heading the Department of Zoological Research in 1996. In 1997, Kleiman assumed the position of Senior Scientist. After her retirement in 2001, Kleiman served as Senior Scientist Emeritus at NZP, taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland at College Park, and owned a consulting company, Zoo-Logic, LLC. During her career, Kleiman helped establish the Associacao Mico-Leao-Dourado, a Brazilian non-governmental association for the conservation of golden lion tamarins; served on many international committees, working groups, and task forces for species conservation; and was affiliated with numerous non-profit conservation organizations. Much of Kleiman's research and activities focused on the reintroduction of golden lion tamarins to the wild and the captive breeding of giant pandas. Particularly well-documented in this collection are Kleiman's research trips, especially to China; publicity related to her research; and preparations for publishing two books, "Wild Mammals in Captivity: Principles and Techniques" (1996) and "Lion Tamarins: Biology and Conservation" (2002). One folder documents a memorial fund set up after Kleiman's death. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, clippings, presentations, reports, meeting materials, images, field books, notes, postcards, greeting cards, a scrapbook, a videotape, ephemera, awards, collected artistic drawings, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the environmental education initiatives of the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Originally administered entirely by the National Zoological Park (NZP), Department of Zoological Research, the GLTCP focused on the conservation of the golden lion tamarin in its natural habitat and was responsible for the release of captive-born golden lion tamarins into the Reserva Biológica de Poço das Antas (Brazil). In 1992, overall administration of the program was transferred to the Brazilian non-governmental organization, Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado. These records were created and maintained by Lou Ann Dietz, a Senior Program Officer for the World Wildlife Fund, a major participant in the GLTCP, until 2003 and then an independent consultant. Topics in this accession include outreach and marketing; media relations; teacher training; and children's activities. Materials include correspondence; clippings and reprints; GLTCP publications, reports, and planning documents; press releases; meeting materials; course materials; scripts for films, plays, and audio recordings; children's contest entries; proposals and agreements; brochures; maps; ephemera; and related materials. Some publications had been maintained by James M. Dietz, Research Associate, National Zoological Park.

This accession consists of materials documenting the research and professional activities of conservation biologist Devra G. Kleiman, 1952-2010. Kleiman began her professional career in 1972 as the first female scientist at the National Zoological Park (NZP) where she was hired to manage the zoo's captive breeding program. In 1982, Kleiman became Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs in the Office of Animal Programs, assuming the position permanently the following year. During a series of reorganizations, Kleiman became the Assistant Director of Zoological Research and Education in 1984; the Assistant Director of Research in 1985; and the Assistant Director of Zoological Research heading the Dept. of Zoological Research in 1996. In 1997, Kleiman assumed the position of Senior Scientist. After her retirement in 2001, Kleiman served as Senior Scientist Emeritus at NZP, taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland at College Park, and owned a consulting company, Zoo-Logic, LLC. During her career, Kleiman helped establish the Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado, a Brazilian non-governmental association for the conservation of golden lion tamarins; served on many international committees, working groups, and task forces for species conservation; and was affiliated with numerous non-profit conservation organizations. Much of Kleiman's research and activities focused on the reintroduction of golden lion tamarins to the wild and the captive breeding of giant pandas. Other research projects included Delmarva fox squirrels, beach (oldfield) mice, island foxes, and, more generally, primates, canids, and other mammals. She also trained other scientists in behavioral observations, vocalization interpretations, and animal reintroduction preparations. Kleiman wrote approximately 150 manuscripts and two books, Wild Mammals in Captivity: Principles and Techniques (1996) and Lion Tamarins: Biology and Conservation (2002). Kleiman's research trips to China and Brazil are also well-documented in this accession.

Materials include correspondence, presentations, reports, planning documents, meeting materials, manuscripts, images, fieldbooks, clippings, notes, postcards, brochures, pamphlets, contracts, surveys, newsletters, videos, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of handwritten field data about groups of golden lion tamarins in the Poco das Antas Biological Reserve in Brazil. Each group was identified by a series of letters or letters and numbers. Most of the groups had been initially bred in zoos and released into the wild as part of a reintroduction effort led by the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Locals familiar with the territory were taught to record observations of the reintroduced animals and their born-wild offspring. The data sheets were compiled and maintained by James M. Dietz, Research Associate, National Zoological Park, and Professor, University of Maryland. Some materials were created under the Department of Zoological Research.

This accession consists of records created and maintained by Devra G. Kleiman documenting the administration of the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Kleiman served as Scientist, 1972-1982; Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs, 1982-1983; Assistant Director for Animal Programs, 1983-1984; Assistant Director for Zoological Research and Education, 1984-1985; Assistant Director for Research, 1985-1996; Assistant Director of Zoological Research, 1996-1997, and Senior Scientist, 1997-2001. Originally administered entirely by the National Zoological Park (NZP), Department of Zoological Research, the GLTCP focused on the conservation of the golden lion tamarin in its natural habitat and was responsible for the release of captive-born golden lion tamarins into the Reserva Biológica de Poço das Antas (Brazil). In 1992, overall administration of the program was transferred to the Brazilian non-governmental organization, Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado. Kleiman and several scientific and administrative staff continued to administer NZP's involvement in reintroduction, tracking, and conservation education. Topics documented in this accession include fund raising, conservation program administration training for zoos, personnel administration, studbook administration, policies, intellectual property, observation of released golden lion tamarins, reintroduction logistics, and involvement with international conservation organizations and committees. In addition to golden lion tamarins, records also document the conservation of black lion tamarins, golden headed lion tamarins, and black faced lion tamarins.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, grant proposals, budget materials, meeting materials, training materials, GLTCP policies, copies of permits, clippings, rights-in-data agreements, position descriptions, and related materials. Some materials were created while the unit was known as the Office of Animal Management (through 1979), the Office of Animal Programs (1979-1984), or the Department of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985). Some materials pre-date Kleiman.
