dc.description.abstract Journal kept by Geoffrey Tate during the 4th Archbold Expedition in New Guinea. Tate acted as general zoological collector. Entries describe the local environments, people and social activities. Tate includes notes about the native assistants on their staff and the local social customs. He discusses both his own collecting activities, primarily focusing on insects and reptiles, as well as the collecting work and general organization of the entire expedition party, including Leonard Brass, Hobart Van Deusen, and Kenneth Wynn. Locations mentioned or described include Samarai, Menapi, the Maneau Range, Baiawa and caves at Dabora. Tate suffered a series of strokes during this expedition and was hospitalized. Geoffrey M. Tate, a zoologist and younger brother of American Museum of Natural History curator G. H. H. Tate, acted as business manager for Archbold Expeditions at the American Museum of Natural History. He accompanied as collector for both the 4th Archbold Expedition to New Guinea and the 1948 Cape York Expedition. en_US
