Abstract:

Journal primarily deals with organization of expedition, including communication between camps, delivery of supplies, movement of the parties and the daily activities of himself, other participants and expedition workers, including collecting work. In August the entries begin to deal more specifically with species information and observations. Also includes some passages with very detailed movement logs for excursions, including the search for a campsite for Mt. Wilhelmina (Mount Trikora). Other localities cited include Hollandia (Jayapura), Bernhard Camp, Lake Habbema, the Idenburg (Taritatu) and Waruma Rivers. Details are given of a shipment of specimen cases to the Museum. Last five pages are numbered carbon copies of the "Summary of activities of inland collecting party."
