USNM - Curators Annual Reports - Dept of Fishes: Annual Report, 1894-1895

About the Project

In the 1895 Department of Fishes’ annual report, assistant curator Barton A. Bean depicts a Fish Hall in desperate need of revamping. Bean describes the amount of light shining into the hall as a cause for specimen deterioration. Additionally, he noted the need for clerical assistance in the department. The goal for the following year, Bean writes, is to relabel the Fish Hall cases in order to “present a better appearance” at the United States National Museum. Join a group of volunpeers in transcribing the report, which accounts a rebuilding year for the department.
