Data includes number, sex, name, measurements, locality and date collected, and remarks. Also notes when material is collected by someone else, and if preserved in spirits. Locations include Thomasville, Georgia, the Adirondacks in New York, and areas of Papua New Guinea visited in the first Archbold New Guinea Expedition. Page lines are numbered, some spans are missing. Additional notes have been added in red pen, potentially by AMNH personnel. Mammals -- field numbers 1-43, 251-320, 1296-2140; Birds -- field numbers 1-16 birds. Richard Archbold was a sponsor of scientific study, mountaineer, aviator and research associate at the American Museum of Natural History from 1931. He established Archbold Expeditions (formerly Biological Expeditions) which sponsored field work, a collection and curatorial staff at the American Museum of Natural History. He also founded the Archbold Biological Station in Florida in 1941 as a center for scientific research and ecological study. One of the first to recognize the value of air transport in expeditionary work, Archbold led three of the New Guinea expeditions, the third of which culminated in the seaplane Guba II's historic transcontinental flight. en_US
