dc.description.abstract Catalog of mammals collected by Coultas between December 18, 1929 and February 8, 1935 while leading the Whitney South Sea Expedition. Information collected includes specimen number, identification of animal, sex, locality, date, measurement, weight, and other remarks. Specimen numbers are not entirely sequential and span from 38937 to 46554. Localities include the Solomon Islands, the Caroline Islands, New Britain, the northeast coast of New Guinea, and the Admiralty Islands in the Bismarck Archipelago. Includes list of material in alcohol. Notes on inside of front cover appear to be a guide for information to be collected or searched for. Coultas joined the Whitney South Sea Expedition in 1929 and acted as leader from 1930 to 1935. Coultas was a professional collector, who with his friend Walter Eyerdam had initially approached Robert Cushman Murphy, curator of birds at AMNH, about funding for an expedition to East Siberia. Murphy suggested the Whitney South Sea Expedition instead, with both men in the roles of collectors. Although their duties were the same, Coultas was appointed leader. en_US
