F. W. True - Correspondence and notes, N - Z

About the Project

How good are your organization skills? As a researcher and curator, F. W. True needed to keep good track of his notes and correspondence, their topics and who he discussed them with was critical. He kept a file of correspondence, notes, drawings, expense documents, news clippings, and more arranged alphabetically by either correspondent or scientific name of specimen. There appears to be no specific rule which determines where a particular item is filed, and correspondence with individuals is often filed by scientific name. This collection division, N to Z, includes material on the collection and description of specimens, professional correspondence on fossil whales, and information on collecting localities with numerous references to Cretacean and whale fossils. Join us and other digital volunteers in transcribing this material for a deeper understanding of the context of True's research and collection stewardship.
