Abstract:

Also included in this series are a few letters addressed to James Hall, ca. 1840-1876; a small number of letters received by "Professor Rupert Jones" (Thomas Rupert Jones, English geologist and paleontologist); and scattered earlier letters to other individuals, most not concerning the state' geological or paleontological work.

The correspondence received by Clarke is related to his work for the State Museum as well as his general professional career as a paleontologist and geologist. The letters are from fellow scientists (including members of other state and national geological surveys), collectors and suppliers of fossils, and officers of professional organizations. Prominent correspondents include Charles E. Beecher, William B. Clark, James D. Dana, Amadeus W. Grabau, D. Dana Luther, Charles S. Prosser, Charles Schuchert, and Charles D. Walcott. Some of the subjects of this correspondence are: discussion of paleontological issues such as fossil identification and significance, stratigraphy, naming of fossils; field work activities of State Museum staff; submission of manuscripts to the State Museum for publication; transaction of professional society business; and management of professional journals.

The correspondence received by James Hall consists of a few isolated letters from other scientists, including a small number from Joseph Henry. Most letters concern Hall's collection of paleontological specimens or his work on the Paleontology of New York.

The correspondence received by Thomas Rupert Jones was written by several European scientists and generally concerns Jones specialty of fossil "microzoa." It is unknown how these items came to be among Clarke's correspondence.
