USNM Curators Annual Reports: Department of Mollusks, 1895-1896
About the Project
A donation does not have to be big to be valuable. Curator and noted naturalist William Healey Dall (1845-1927) starts off his 1895-1896 annual report of the Department of Mollusks activities to the Director of the United States National Museum with a description of several small donations of shells received and what they meant to the steadily growing Museum's collections. Join in with other volunteers transcribing this project and see what else the department staff accomplished. If you've worked some other Department of Mollusks projects, you will probably recognize some of the names and some of the specimens!
