William and Lucile Mann's South American trip, 1939
About the Project
What memories do you capture in a scrapbook? Lucile Quarry Mann compiled this scrapbook about a 1939 trip to Argentina and Brazil with her husband William Mann, then Director of the National Zoological Park. The trip's goal was collecting and exchanging live animals with zoos in South America and the scrapbook includes a variety of items to capture many different aspects of the trip: photographs, news clippings, menus, passenger lists, postcards, original artwork (by Newbery),and advertisements for theatrical events. Transcribe with other volunteers and discover the memories Lucile Mann chose to safekeep in this scrapbook.
