Abstract:

Papers pertaining to his research consist of correspondence, notes, and illustrations focusing on Noble's interest in experimental behavior, particularly of caecilians (primitive amphibians), jewel fish, herring gulls, laughing gulls, frogs, and snakes. His papers include a manuscript by Cora S. Winkin about skin molts of a lizard, Ameiva Chrysolaema. Also, letters of inquiry from the public and other individuals focusing on birds, snakes, and turtles.

Noble's correspondence with colleagues concerns research projects, exchange of scientific information, specimens, and publications, identification and loan of specimens, research, and manuscripts for published articles. Correspondents include Thomas Barbour, S.C. Bishop, Alan Boyden, W. Douglas Burden, Charles E. Burt, Arthur Loveridge, Byron Marshall, Eugene Odum, Arthur I. Ortenburger, Alexander Ruthven, Karl P. Schmidt, Homer Smith, and Konrad Lorenz. Also, correspondence with Paul Kammerer and Thomas Hunt Morgan regarding Kammerer's controversial theories and experiments on neo-Lamarckian inheritance of acquired characteristics; and a small amount of correspondence regarding Niko Tinbergen and the Hyuck Preserve in northern New York State. Other subjects extensively discussed in Noble's correspondence files include collecting and collections of herpetological specimens, exhibitions at the Museum, worldwide expeditions and field trips to collect specimens, and expositions and fairs; and correspondence with foundations and institutes, laboratories, field stations, museums, and pharmaceutical companies concerned with experimental biological products, teaching films, scholarly and popular publications, societies, and universities. Also, correspondence with the Museum's executive offices concerning administrative affairs, and formation of the Museum's Dept. of Experimental Biology (later known as Animal Behavior); and.

Correspondence with animal dealers regarding purchase of specimens.
