William and Lucile Mann - Diary, 1937
About the Project
In 1937, Superintendent of the National Zoological Park (1925-1956) William Mann traveled with his wife Lucile Quarry Mann as part of the National Geographic Society-Smithsonian Institution Expedition to the Dutch East Indies. An editor, Lucile kept this typed account of their daily activities during the expedition including specimen collection efforts, interactions with people there and other observations. From time to time, she added in handwritten notes of interest, description of events and short stories.
