dc.description.abstract The AMNH Whitney South Sea Expedition was an expedition initiated by Dr. Leonard C. Sanford and funded by Harry Payne Whitney, with the mission of systematically exploring Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia for previously undiscovered or little-known bird specimens. It was the largest ornithological expedition ever conceived. Active field research was conducted from 1920 to 1941. This bound collection of field notes represents the collecting work of both birds and mammals from 1935. It also contains some notes about insects. Coultas was a professional collector who participated in the expedition from late 1929 to 1935. He was selected to be the third leader, directing the expedition between 1930 and 1935. en_US
