USNM Curators Annual Reports - Department of Birds: Annual and Monthly Reports 1885
About the Project
If you were asked to summarize a month or a year's worth of work what would you leave out? What would you make sure to include?
Department of Birds curator Robert Ridgway was meticulous in his monthly and annual reports to the United States National Museum's Director just as he was meticulous in his color studies and illustrations of North American birds. Join other digital volunteers working to transcribe Ridgway's 1885 reports.
