5th Archbold Expedition to New Guinea : Field Catalog April 11 to December 17, 1956 / Russell F. Peterson

Field catalog kept by Russell Peterson between April 11 and December 17, 1956 while participating in the 5th Archbold Expedition to New Guinea. As zoologist, Peterson collected not only mammals but also herpetological, ichthyological, ornithological specimens and ectoparasites. Information includes field number, name, sex, date, elevation of locality, measurements, and notes. Also includes some clarifying notes about site locations. Primary localities are the Normanby, Fergusson, Misima, Sudest, Rossel, Woodlark, and Kiriwina Islands and Milne Bay. The material includes both the numbered field catalog as well as summarized listings of specimens arranged by location and type. Additionally, a duplicated checklist of previously collected mammals and collectors in the region is included and appears to have been updated by Peterson with his findings. Specimen numbers cataloged are 13611 to 14993.
