Smithsonian-Bredin Caribbean Expedition, 1956 - Correspondence
About the Project
How quickly could you put together a scientific expedition? Who would you involve in the effort? Here is correspondence from Dr. Waldo Schmitt and others dated between 1955 and 1956 covering the preparation and events of the expedition and some discussing a previous Bredin-funded expedition to the African Congo. Join us in transcribing this set of correspondence and help us get a better understanding of the people who were directly or indirectly involved in the expedition.
