USNM Curators Annual Reports - Department of Birds: Annual and Monthly Reports 1891 - 1892
About the Project
"In addition to the regular routine work of the Department, which of itself is too complicated to admit ..., the following special work was accomplished during the year." With these words, curator Robert Ridgway (1850-1929) began his annual report to G. Brown Goode, Assistant Secretary in charge of the United States National Museum. Thankfully, Ridgway's monthly reports cover the work that is "too complicated." Help us transcribe Ridgway's reports to shed some more light on the activities of the Department of Birds in 1891-1892.
