Donald S. Erdman - Persian Gulf Notes and Lists

About the Project

In 1948, the Arabian American Oil Company invited Donald Erdman of the United States National Museum to survey fishes, marine life and freshwater life in the Persian Gulf and part of the Red Sea. As part of the survey, Erdman collected almost 5,000 specimens for the museum. A report was due along with presentation remarks. These materials are his, what seems to be, unpublished address and report along with other notes.

Join us in transcribing these manuscripts and see how Erdman prepared to summarize the survey and his collecting activities which he had documented in his journal.
