Abstract:

Journal entries recorded by Archbold as leader and pilot of the 3rd Expedition to New Guinea. Topics include the daily activities of Archbold, general activities of the expedition party members, and description of the localities and weather. Also organization and planning of movements and both scheduling and receipt of supply drops, the identification of campsites, the reconnaissance of Mt. Wilhelmina (Mount Trikora) in preparation to ascend, and descriptions of trade and ceremony with native inhabitants. Entries are sporadic and span August 11-September 30 and November 15-17, 1938 and June 11, 1939. Note that the journal Includes extremely little content regarding collecting activities. Locations specified include Lake Habbema, Mt. Wilhelmina, the Grand Valley Camp, the Scree valley camp, and Hollandia, now Jayapura. A final entry from June 1939 at Cocos Island describes observations of birdlife in that locality, which was traversed during the post-expedition transatlantic flight of the Guba II.
