USNM Curators Annual Reports: Department of Mollusks, 1890-1891
About the Project
Sometimes, it is said, the fuller story is found between the lines. You might find that to be true in the 1890-1891 annual report submitted by the US National Museum's honorary curator of the Department of Mollusks, William Healey Dall (1845-1927.) Lines crossed out, other text inserted, and comments in the margin show up in handwriting that is different from the overall report. Do these edits tell their own story about the work of the department this particular year? Join in with other digital volunteers to transcribe Dall's report and decide for yourself!
