USNM Curators Annual Reports - Department of Fishes: Annual Report, 1882
About the Project
Every year, Valentine’s Day gives us an excuse to evaluate characteristics we really value in people. If you like someone who has neat handwriting, takes meticulous, detail-orientated notes, and likes long walks to the Department of Fishes, Smithsonian curator Tarleton H. Bean would have been your match in 1882. Assist us in transcribing the curators' reports, which will give researchers a thorough glimpse into the goings on in the ichthyology department in 1882.
