Abstract:

Museum departmental records include 19th-century administrative and financial records; 19th and 20th-century collection records of accession, storage and exchange; curatorial correspondence; field and research notes; drawings; and about 50 photographs,1859-ca.1940, documenting the museum building, exterior, exhibitions, classrooms and laboratories. The second series contains papers (mostly 19th century) of the museum curatorial staff including zoologists, paleontologists, geologists, biologists, and students; correspondence with colleagues and research institutions worldwide; manuscripts; field and research notes; drawings; approximately 500 pictures of staff and students, and scientific illustrations; student notes of Louis Agassiz's lectures; and ephemera. The last series of papers (mostly 20th century) of curators and research associates are characterized by their emphasis on research rather than museum functions. Each individual's papers typically contains: correspondence with colleagues, field notes, manuscripts, photographs and memorabilia.
