David Crockett Graham - Diary no. 8, August 1929 - March 1930

About the Project

David Crockett Graham made careful notes of his activities during his time collecting in China. In the fall of 1929 and winter of 1930, Graham's field collecting of specimens took him to Kongshien, Tseo Jia Geo, Li Chuang (currently Lizhuang), Chuan Gioh Chi, and the Chengtu (currently Chengdu) vicinity. In his Diary No. 8 of ten, he provides a narrative description of daily activities including amounts and types of mammals, birds, insects, snakes, and possibly other specimens. Graham, a naturalist, educator and missionary, also collects artifacts and makes ethnological and anthropological observations during this trip. Help us transcribe the typescript version this diary.
