dc.description.abstract Daily observations and specimen notes from Bryan's 10 month-stint with the Whitney South Sea expedition on behalf of the Bishop Museum in 1924. Bryan's notes mention various islands visited, including the Cook Islands, American Samoa and Fiji. His foreword states that this typescript contains some spelling errors due to typist unfamiliarity with proper scientific and geographic nomenclature. Edwin H. Bryan was an American naturalist who was affiliated with the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Hawaii, for most of his life. The Museum focuses on the cultures and natural history of Hawaii and surrounding Pacific islands, and had Bryan join the Whitney Expedition as its representative. He was informed to not focus on collecting birds but rather on plant, insect and anthropological specimens. Bryan kept meticulous diaries during his visits to over fifty islands. His original journals are housed in the Bishop Museum archives, and a transcription of his field notes was published in 2007 as Bishop Museum technical report 37. en_US
