David Crockett Graham - Diary C, December 5, 1933-July 6, 1934

About the Project

David Crockett Graham kept careful and diligent notes of his field work in China. Diary C, as he labeled it, picks back up where Diary B left off, from 5 December 1933 to 6 July 1934. Naturalist, educator and missionary in China's Szechuan region, Graham collected specimens for the United States National Museum. Many of these notes are focused on packing specimens for shipment to the Smithsonian, but include his notes about the death of one of his aborigine collectors, the activities of other aborigine collectors, and a brief trip to Kiating (currently Leshan). Join us and other digital volunteers in transcribing this typescript of his diary. The handwritten version can be seen here.
