David Crockett Graham - Diary b, July 16, 1933-December 3, 1933
About the Project
In the second half of 1933, David Crockett Graham, naturalist, educator and missionary in China continued collecting specimens for the United States National Museum. This field book is the second of five diaries covering the period of 1932 through 1935 and documents an expedition to Wen Chuan Hsien, Dong Men Wai, Sa Ping Kuang, and other locations. Graham's narrative style captures his daily activities including amounts and types of mammals, birds, reptiles and insects collected, often providing additional details such as the common name, elevation, date, and location where a specimen was collected or purchased.
Join us and other digital volunteers in transcribing this typescript of his diary. The handwritten version can be seen here.
