dc.description.abstract A daily journal kept by Tate between December 1, 1947 and October 27, 1948 while participating in the Archbold Expeditions-funded 1948 Cape York Expedition. It documents his daily activities, including travel to and from the location, collection and preparation work, social engagements, planning and organizing segments of the expedition and descriptions of the environs. Some mention is also made of the other participants of the expedition, including Leonard Brass and Hobart Van Deusen. Color and black and white hand-drawn maps of locations including Mt. Tozer and the area of Coen are inserted in the volume, and seven annotated black and white photographs and blank specimen tags are additionally laid into back of volume. In addition to the journal entries, the volume contains itinerary and notes arranged by specimen name. Includes a few pages that appear to have been drafted by Hobart Van Deusen. George Henry Hamilton Tate (1894-1953) was a British-born zoologist who worked as curator in the department of mammalogy at the American Museum of Natural History. He participated in a number of expeditions, including the Archbold Expeditions-funded trips to New Guinea and the Cape York Peninsula. He was the older brother of zoologist Geoffrey M. Tate. en_US
