William H. Dall- Diary,1865

About the Project

Who would you recruit to help you build a trans-Pacific communication system? For Western Union's Telegraph Expedition of 1865-1867 (which explored creating a communication system between North America and Europe through Alaska and Asia), the company chose naturalist William Healey Dall to lead the expedition's science corps. Dall was later named Honorary Curator of the United States National Museum's Division of Mollusks. This diary also serves as a background for Dall's previously transcribed diary from the end of the Telegraph Expedition.

Join other volunteers in transcribing Dall's diary and read a first-hand account of an incredible science expedition!
