By Richard Rathbun, 

Amstant Secretary of the SmUhsonian InetUution^ 
in charge of the U. 8. NaHonal Mueeum, 


The Congress of the Umted States in the act of August 10, 1846, 
founding the Smithsonian Institution recognized that an opportunity 
was afforded, in carrying out the lai^e-minded design of Smithson, to 
provide for the custody of the museum of the Nation. To this new 
establishment was therefore intrusted the care of the national collec- 
tions, a course that time has fuUy justified. 

In the beginning the cost of maintaining the museum side of the 
Institution's work was wholly paid from the Smithsonian income; 
then for a time the Government bore a share, and during the past 37 
years Congress has voted the entire funds for the expenses of the 
Museum, thus furthering one of the primary means "for the increase 
and diffusion of knowledge among men" without encroaching upon 
the resources of the Institution. 

The museum idea was inherent in the establishment of the Smith- 
sonian Institution, which in its turn was based upon a 10 years' 
discussion in Congress and the advice of the most distinguished 
scientific man, educators, and intellectual leaders of the Nation of 70 
years ago. It is interesting to note how broad and comprehensive 
were the views which actuated our lawmakers in determining the 
scope of the Museum, a fact especially remarkable when it is recalled 
that at that date no museum of considerable size existed in the United 
States, and the museums of England and of the continent of Europe 
were still to a large extent without a developed plan, although con- 
taining many rich collections. 

The Congress which passed the act of foundation entmierated as 
within the scope of the Museum "all objects of art and of foreign 
and curious research and all objects of natural history, plants, and 
geological and mineralogical specimens bdonging to the United 



States/' thus stamping the Museum at the very outset as one of the 
widest range and at the same time as the Museum of the United 
States. It was also fully appreciated that additions would be neces* 
sary to the collections then in existence, and provision was made for 
their increase by the exchange of duplicate specimens, by donations, 
and by other means. 

If the wisdom of Congress in so fully providing for a museiun in 
the Smithsonian law challenges attention, the interpretation put upon 
this law by the Board of Regents within less than six months from 
the passage of the act can not but command admiration. In the 
early part of September, 1846, the Regents took steps toward formulat- 
ing a plan of operations. The report of the committee appointed 
for this purpose, submitted in December and January following, 
shows a thorough consideration of the subject in both the spirit and 
letter of the law. It woidd seem not out of place to cite here the 
first pronouncement of the board with reference to the character of 
the Museum: 

''In obedience to the requirements of the charter,^ which leaves 
little discretion in regard to the extent of accommodations to be pro- 
vided, your committee recommend that there be included in the 
building a museimi of liberal size, fitted up to receive the collections 
destined for the Institution. * ♦ ♦ 

**As important as the cabinets of natural history by the charter 
required to be included in the Museum, your conunittee regard its 
ethnological portion, including all collections that may supply items 
in the physical history of our species, and illustrate the manners, 
customs, religions, and progressive advance of the various nations 
of the world; as, for "example, collections of skuUs, skeletons, por- 
traits, dresses, implements, weapons, idols, antiquities, of the various 
races of man. * ♦ * In this connexion, your committee recom- 
mend the passage of resolutions asking the cooperation of certain 
public functionaries, and of the public generally, in furtherance of 
the above objects. 

"Your committee are further of opinion that in the Museum, if 
the funds of the Institution permit, might judiciously be included 
various series of models illustrating the progress of some of the most 
useful inventions; such, for example, as the steam engine from its 
earliest and rudest form to its present most improved state; but this 
they propose only so far as it may not encroach on ground already 
covered by the numerous models in the Patent Office. 

''Specimens of staple materials, of their gradual manufacture, and 
of the finished product of manufactures and the arts may also, your

^he use of the word "charter'' in this connection was not correct. 


committee thinki be usefully introduced. This would supply oppor- 
tunity to examine samples of the best, manufactured articles our 
country affords, and to judge her gradual progress in arts and manu- 
factures. * * * 

"The gallery of art, your committee think, should include both 
paintings and sculpture, as well as engravings and architectural 
designs; and it is desirable to have in connexion with it one or more 
studios in which young artists might copy without interruption, 
being admitted imder such r^ulations as the board may prescribe. 
Your committee also think that, as the collection of paintings and 
sculpture will probably accumulate slowly, the room destined for a 
gallery of art might properly and usefully meanwhile be occupied 
during the sessions of Congress as an exhibition room for the works 
of artists generally; and the extent and general usefulness of such an 
exhibition might probably be increased if an arrangement could be 
effected with the Academy of Design, the Arts Union, the Artists' 
Fund Society, and other associations of similar character, so as to 
concentrate at the metropolis for a certain portion of each winter the 
best results of talent in the jGne arts." 

The important points in the foregoing report are (1) that it was 
the opinion of the Eegents that a museiun was requisite under the 
law, Congress having left no discretion in the matter; (2) that eth- 
nology and anthropology, though not specially named, were yet as 
important subjects as natural history; (3) that the history of the 
progress of useful inventions and the collection of the raw materials 
and products of the manufactures and arts should also be provided 
for; (4) for the gallery of art the committee had models in existence, 
and they proposed, pending the gathermg of art collections, which 
would of necessity be slow, to provide for loan exhibitions by cooper- 
ating with art academies and societies. 

In the resolutions which were adopted upon the presentation of 
the report, a museiun was mentioned as ''one of the principal modes 
of executing the act and trust." ^ The work was to go forward as the 
funds permitted, and, as is well known, the maintenance of the 
Museum and the library waa long ago assumed by Congress, the 
Institution taking upon itself only so much of the necessary respon- 
sibility for the administration of these and subsequent additions to 

' Resolved, That it is the intention of the act of Congress establishing the Insti- 
tation, and in accordance with the design of Mr. Smithson, as expressed in his will, 
that one of the principal modes of executing the act and the trust is the accumulation 
of collectiona of spedmens and objects of natural history and of elegant art, and the 
gradual formation of a library of valuable works pertaining to all departments of 
human knowledge, to the end that a copious storehouse of materials of science, litera- 
ture, and art may be provided which shall excite and difihise the love of learning 
among men, and shall assist the original investigations and efforts of those who may 
devote themselves to the pursuit of any branch of knowledge. 


its activities as would weld them into a compact whole, which together 
form a miique and notable, agency for the increase and diffusion of 
knowledge, for the direction of research, for cooperation with depart- 
ments of the Government and with universities and scientific societies 
in America, and likewise afford a definite correspondent to all scientific 
institutions and men abroad who seek interchange of views or knowl* 
edge with men of science in the United States. 

Since that early day the only material change in the scope of the 
Government Museum has been the addition of a department of 
American history, intended to illustrate by an appropriate assemblage 
of objects the Uves of distinguished personages, important events, 
and the domestic life of the country from the colonial period to the 
present time. 

The development of the Museum has been greatest in those subjects 
which the conditions of the past 60 years have made most fruitful — 
the natural history, geology, ethnology, and archeology of the United 
States, supplemented by many collectionia from other countries. 
The opportunities for acquisition in these directions have been 
mainly brought about through the activities of the scientific and 
economic surveys of the Government, many of which are the direct 
outgrowths of earlier explorations, stimulated or directed by the 
Smithsonian Institution. The Centennial Exhibition of 1876 afforded 
the first opportimity for estabUshing a department of the industrial 
arts on a creditable basis, and of this the fullest advantage was taken, 
though only a part of the collections then obtained could be accom- 
modated in the space available. The department or gallery of the 
fine arts had made fittle progress, though not from lack of desire or 
appreciation, until within the past seven years, during which its 
interests have been markedly advanced. 

With the completion of the new large granite structure on the Mall, 
the Museimi has come virtually into possession of a group of three 
buildings, in which there is opportunity for a proper systematic 
arrangement of its vast and varied collections as well as a compre- 
hensive public installation, and under these favorable conditions it 
may be considered to have entered upon an era of renewed pros- 
perity and usefulness. 

While it is the primary duty of a museum to preserve the objects 
confided to its care, as it is that of a library to preserve its books and 
manuscripts, yet the importance of public collections rests not upon 
the mere basis of custodianship, nor upon the number of specimens 
assembled and their money value, but upon the use to which they are 
put. Judged by this standard, the National Museum may claim to 
have reached a high state of efficiency. From an educational point 

view it is of great value to those persons who are so fortunate as to 
^e in Washington or who are able to visit the Nation's Capital* 


In its well-designed cases, in which every detail of structure, appoints 
ment, and color is considered, a selection of representative objects is 
placed on view to the public, all being carefully labeled individually 
and in groups. The child as well as the adult has been provided for, 
and the kinde^arten pupil and the hig^-school scholar can be seen 
here, supplementing their classroom games or studies. Undor 
authority from Congress, the small colleges and hi^er grades of 
schools and academies throu^bout the land, especially in places 
where musemns do not exist, are also being aided in their educational 
work by sets of duplicate specimens, selected and labeled to meet the 
needs of both teadiers and pupils. 

Nor has the elementary or even the higher education been by any 
means the sole gainer from the work of the Museum. To advance 
knowledge, to gradually extend the boundaries of learning, has been 
one of the great tasks to which the Museum, in consonance with the 
spirit of the Institution, has set itself from the first. Its staff, though 
chiefly engaged in the duties incident to the care, classification, and 
labeling of collections in order that they may be accessible to the 
public and to students, has yet in these operations made important 
discoveries in every department of the Museum's activities, which 
have in turn been conmiunicated to other scholars through its numer- 
ous publications. But the collections have not been held for the 
study of the staff nor for the scientific advancement of those belong- 
ing to the establishment. Most freely have they been put at the 
disposal of investigators connected with other institutions, and, in 
fact, without the help of many such the record of scientific progress 
based upon theloaaterial in the Museum would have been greatly 
curtailed. When it is possible to so arrange, the investigator comes 
to Washington; otherwise such collections as he needs are sent to 
him, whether he resides in this country or abroad. In this manner 
practically every prominent specialist throughout the world interested 
in the subjects here well represented has had some use of the col- 
lections, and thereby the National Museum has come to be recog- 
nized as a conspicuous factor in the advancement of knowledge 
wherever civilization has a foothold. 

Most important among the operations of the past year was the work 
upon the exhibition collections of natural history, in the arrangement 
of which sufficient progress was made to justify the opening of all 
the public haUs in the new building, as described below. Much was 
also accomplished in the direction of rehabilitating certain branches 
of the department of the arts and industries, to which for a long time 
it has been impossible to give proper recognition, owing to the over- 
crowded condition of the Museum space preceding the occupation of 
the new building.

wherever civilization has a foothold. 

Most important among the operations of the past year was the work 
upon the exhibition collections of natural history, in the arrangement 
of which sufficient progress was made to justify the opening of all 
the public halls in the new buildiog, as described below. Much was 
also accomplished in the direction of rehabilitating certain branches 
of the department of the arts and industries, to which for a long time 
it has been impossible to give proper recognition, owing to the over- 
crowded condition of the Museum space preceding the occupation of 
the new building. 


Of the 468,000 square feet, or approximately lOJ acres, of floor 
space furnished by the new building, some 220,000 square feet, or 
fully 5 acres, are of the nature of exhibition space. Included in the 
latter figures are the main floor and galleries of the south pavilion 
and rotunda, and the large central hall and several of its communi- 
cating rooms in the ground story, which, though occasionally and in 
part used for temporary exhibitions, have not as yet been perma- 
nently assigned to any purpose. The entire area of the wings and 
ranges in the first and second stories, however, has been defimtely 
allotted to the display of natural history subjects and before the close 
of last year the installations had been sufficiently advanced to permit 
of its being wholly opened to the public. The total extent of this 
area is 185,294 square feet, of which 7,264 feet have for several years 
been provisionally occupied by the paintings of the National Gallery 
of Art in default of proper lighting in either of the other buildings. 

As described in a previous report, the new building consists of three 
great wings extending east, west and north from a practically square 
pavilion and connected near their outer ends by two L-shaped ranges, 
one on each side, so placed as to complete the enclosure of two large 
courts and give to the building a rectangular and synunetrical outline 
in plan. The two exhibition floors are above a basement or ground 
story and are surmounted by a third story and attic, the latter not 
discernible from the outside. The wings are approximately 116 feet 
wide in the inside, and the ranges 54 feet 2 inches. The east and west 
wings are 216 feet long, but the north wing measures only 205 feet, 
while each of the ranges has a total length of 316 feet 10 inches. The 
heights are 20 feet in the first story and 19 feet 6 inches in the second 

On account of their grealr width, it was necessary to introduce a 
large skylight over the middle of each wing in order to obtain illumi- 
nation for the central part of the main floor, which required the pierc- 
ing of the second as well as the succeeding stories, with a correspond- 
ing diminution in their areas. . In the ranges, however, the floors are 
unbroken and alike in both stories. The main entrance is on the 
south side of the building, where the pavilion and rotunda serve as a 
great lobby communicating directly with all the wings. From this 
point, as also from the north side, which contains a secondary public 
entrance, circulation is continuous and unobstructed aroimd the 
entire building, with a median thoroughfare through the north wing. 


The skylighted section of each wing is of the nature of a great hall, 
54 feet 8 inches high to the under side of the ceiling light, about 167 
feet 6 inches long and 50 feet wide. Its boundaries in the first story 
are marked by a row of large rectangular piers on each side and a 
crossrow at the outer end, enclosing steel column supports for the 
inner edges of the floor above and for the waUs of the light well, 
whose only piercings are certain balcony openings in the second 
story. The interspaces between the piers in the lateral rows, except 
the extreme one at each end, have been fiUed in with screen walls to 
further mark the line of demarcation and supply additional wall 
space for the purposes of installation. The side aisles furnish elon- 
gate halls, about 33 feet wide, reaching to the space at the outer end 
of the wing, which may be regarded as a fourth hall, measuring about 
116 feet by 48 feet, except in the north wing, where its size is less 
and where a screen wall cuts it across. Only where the screen walls 
occur, however, is there any effect of actual division between the 
sections of the wing, whose great dimensions of length, width and 
height are in evidence from practically every point of view. In the 
second story of the wings the floor space is the equivalent of the aisles 
and outer hall of the main story, with approximately the same 
dimensions for each. 

From the south pavilion there are three large openings into each 
of the wings on the first floor, one leading to the central hall, the 
others to the aisles. On the second floor there are only two such 
entrances, one on each side, though an intermediate balcony opening 
furnishes a general view overlooking the main hall. From the north 
entrance of the building inmiediate access is had to only the north 
wing, from which the others can be reached only by traversing that 
wing or the ranges at the sides. 

The provisions for the lighting of the exhibition halls are ample, as, 
in addition to the skylights, the outer walls are pierced with excep- 
tionally large windows, whose width is 1 1 feet 6 inches as against a 
width of 7 feet for the intervening piers, and whose height is only 4 
feet to 5 feet 6 inches leas than that of the stories. It is also of 
interest to note that the length dimension of the building is based 
on a constant unit of 18^ feet, which is the distance between the cen- 
ters of successive piers, and is only disregarded in meeting architec- 
tural requirements at the comers of the building and at the juncture 
of walls. This arrangement lends itself to imiformity in the instal- 
lation of exhibits, which the size of the unit adopted permits to be 
carried out on a scale and in a manner commensurate with the large 
size of the halls. 

The plan of three Mringa particularly adapts the building to the 
three departments representing the organization of the natural his- 
tory collections, each of which is allotted an entire wing for its exbibi- 


tion series, the overflow from each extending a greater or less distance 
into the adjacent ranges. The department of anthropology, which is 
centrally located with respect to the other two departments, occupies 
the north wing, the northern section of both ranges in the first story, 
and the entire east range in the second story, with an aggregate of 
65,941 square feet of floor space, besides the 7,264 square feet used 
for the National Gallery of Art. The department of geology is 
assigned the east wing and the eastern section of the east range in 
the first story, with 47,691 square feet of floor space; while the 
department of biology has possession of the west wing, the western 
section of the west range in the first story, and the entire west range 
in the second story, with an aggregate of 64,398 square feet of space. 

The magnitude of the task of installing the large area thus defined, 
of selecting, preparing, arranging, and labeling the great number and 
variety of specimens required, preceded by the planning and construc- 
tion of the necessary cases, can be realized only by the few who have 
had experience in such matters. By expediting the work, by follow- 
ing along the lines of least resistance in order that the public might be 
denied access to the several parts of the building for as short a time as 
possible, the halls have been opened up in rapid succession, the last 
of them before the close of the past year. While to the casual visitor 
the installations may in the main seem altogether presentable, some 
of them are, in fact, still very incomplete, awaiting material which has 
been planned for and which to a greater or less extent is in course of 
preparation. In other cases the arrangements have been more or 
less provisional, demanding an extended revision in the matter of 
details which is steadily progressing, and the work of labeling re- 
mains largely to be done. It is to be understood, of course, that how- 
ever thoroughly the above provisions may be carried out, the collec- 
tions will be subject to changes and improvement during all time in 
order that the public may be kept in touch with the advancement 
of knowledge in natural history, and, through the introduction of 
better methods of illustration, may be led to a clearer understanding 
of the lessons which the exhibits are designed to convey. 

On April 23, 1913, during the semicentennial celebration of the 
National Academy of Sciences, the arrangement of the mammal hall 
in the west wing having been effected, the south or main entrance of 
the building was first regularly opened to the public, which now has 
access to the great structure on both the north and south sides. 


Of the several divisions administered by the department of anthro- 
pology, four have been established in the new building as constituting 
together one of the great branches of natural history as now generally 
recognized by museums. They are physical anthropology, ethnology. 


and archeology, which latter is here subdivided into Old World and 
American. Physical anthropology is not at present represented in 
the public halls, though an important exhibition of a technical char- 
acter for the inspection of experts and students has been arranged in 
connection with the laboratory, as described farther on. Each of the 
other subjects, however, has been extensively illustrated on a popular 
basis of installation, though none the less instructive and important 
for the professional. 

Ethnology. — ^This division occupies the entire area assigned to the 
department of anthropology in the first story, amounting in the 
aggregate to 35,474 square feet of floor apace and comprising the fol- 
lowing, namely: The fuU length of the northern sections of both 
ranges, each measuring 185 feet 6 inches long by 54 feet 2 inches wide; 
and all parts of the north wing outside of the enclosure for the paint- 
ings of the National Gallery of Art, including two side halls 187 feet 
long by 33 feet wide, beeides a considerable amount of space at the 
ends of the wing. 

The arrangement of the ethnological collections is geographical, 
the material belonging to each area being displayed as an assemblage 
or by classes of objects. The exhibits find their key in family lay- 
figure groups placed centrally in the halls, which typify the physical 
characteristics, the social organization, the manners and custonas, and 
the arts and industries of selected human types. The design oi the 
exhibition is to illustrate systematically the comparative differences 
in material culture and advancement of modem groups of mankind, 
thus giving an impression of the effects of environment and racial 
tendencies on the arts and industries of peoples. By means of the 
groups, and of individual figures, models of villages, paintings, trans- 
parencies, etc., the appearance of different peoples and the larger 
scope of their life is also shown. Wherever the collections are suffi- 
ciently large and full they are displayed in separate cases in accord- 
ance with a systematic arrangement, as costumes, textile art, house- 
hold utensils, tools, weapons, transportation, artistic works, etc. A 
synopsis of an implement or product of an art belonging to a great 
area is also sometimes given, noting as examples the adz, the club, the 
spear and tapa cloth, which have a wide distribution. Another 
synoptical series showing the stages of development of implements 
and utensils has been prepared and awaits installation. 

Of this exceedingly interesting and varied exhibition, which will 
before long be described in detail, only a brief summary can be given 
here. In the east range, beginning at the eastern end, are repre- 
sented all the great regions of Africa, the Andaman and Nicobar 
Islands, Papua, Micronesia, Polynesia, the East Indies and the Phil- 
ippines, the figures comprising costumed manikins of Africans, 
Veddahs, Papuans and Malays, and family groups of Negritos,

IgorotS; Filipinos and Samoans. On the east side of the north wing, 
in continuation from the range, are the exhibits from India, Ceylon, 
Siam, Tibet, Mongolia, Turkestan, China, Japan, and the northwest 
coast of America, including a number of single figures and groups of 
Japanese, Ainos and Eskimo, and a series of paintings and enlarged 






photographs placed above the cases on the wall. At the so^th end 
of the wing, adjoining the pavilion, are installed the totem posts and 
other carvings, paintings, baskets and textiles from the north Pacific 
region, besides Eskimo manikins, woodwork, armor, etc. The 
Eskimo exhibit is continued into the southern end of the westaraiide 



of the wing, and is followed by those of the Indians of northwestern 
Canada, the woodland States, the eastern and southern States, the 
northern and southern plains, and the Rocky Mountains, with figure 
groups of the TlinUt of Alaska, the Tinne of Canada, the Eaowa, the 




% ^ jp' * 




Navaho weaver and Navaho silversmith, the Zufd potter, the Cocopa 
and the Viiginia Indians. The ^all cases contain a number of single 
figures, while selections from the Geoi^e Catlin collection of Indian 
paintings are arranged above the cases, and transparencies of both 
Eskimo and Indian subjects are displayed in the windows. 


The west range is devoted to the Indians of Calif omia, Oregon and 
Washington, the Pueblo region, the southwest border States, Mexico, 
Central America, and South America, of which last area a majority 
of the grand ethnological divisions are represented. The family 
groups are of the Sioux, the Hupa of California, the ZuQi, the Hopi, 
the Hopi snake dance, the Maya-Quich6, and the Patagonian. Two 
large models of typical Hopi-Pueblo villages occupy bases in the center 
of the hall, and interspersed among the exhibite here and elsewhere 
are numerous small cases of the Kensington type, containing groups 
of specimens of special interest, village group models, etc. 

At the northern end of the north \ring is an important exhibition 
of basketry. In four cases flanking the entrance to the art gallery 
are arranged many examples of these most interesting and pleasing 
objects of Indian skill and art, constituting a synopsis of the bas- 
ketry work of the four regions of the world; while in the adjoining 
alcove, between the stairs and elevators, is a larger collection com- 
posed exclusively of American baskets, and containing type speci- 
mens for all of North America. 

OH World arcJieology. — ^Embracing in its scope the antiquities of 
Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, and the proximate islands, this 
division possesses but a very inadequate representation of the mat- 
ters which pertain to it. The Government has conducted no explo- 
rations that would contribute to its resources, and the Museum itself 
has had few opportimities for directing material its way. Neverthe- 
less, it has succeeded in assembling a varied and, in many respects, 
a most important collection, from which it has been possible to select 
for exhibition a very considerable series of specimens both interest- 
ing and instructive for the public. The space occupied is the elon- 
gate hall on the west side of the light well in the second story of 
the north wing, measuring about 187 feet 8 inches long by 31 feet 
wide, and the entire outer end of the wing, furnishing an aggregate 
of about 7,926 square feet of floor area. 

The classification is in two great sections, the first embracing the 
culture of the so-called ''historic nations," especially those settled 
around the Mediterranean basin (Assyro-Babylonian, Egyptian, Syro- 
Palestinian and Oreco-Roman), from which our own civilization is 
lai^ely derived; the second, the diversified cultures of various peo- 
ples, imperfectly or not at all represented in contemporary written 
records. To the latter belongs the large body of artifacts and osse- 
ous remains of man and of animals coeval with him in the very early 
stages of his development, generally referred to as the prehistoric or 
stone age. 

The installations are as follows : The alcove at the northern end of 
the wing is mainly occupied by antiquities of Assyria and E^gypt. 
In the center is a large mosaic taken from the floor of a Roman 


temple at Carthage of two millenniums ago and representing a lion 
attacking a wild ass. On either side are fax^similes of the Rosetta 
Stone, and varions Assyro-Babylonian and Palestinian monuments, 
while mounted on a screen is a large relief map of Palestine with two 
Palestine inscriptions, surrounded by a series of geographical and 
ethnographical photogravures. Three floor cases contain the more 
valuable Eg3rptian antiquities — a mummy, an original Greco- 
Egyptian painting, a facsimile of the Book of the Dead, inscribed 
papyri, potteries, stone implements, etc., while wall cases at either 
end of the alcove hold several well-preserved E^gyptian mummy 
cases or coffins. The available wall space is used for reliefs in plas- 
ter illustrating phases of Egyptian and Assyrian history and my- 
thology. In the passage adjoining the alcove are replicas of two 
colossal composite figures, the willed human-headed lion and bull, 
which once guarded the entrance to an Assyrian temple or palace, 
with a series of Egyptian and Assyro-Babylonian statues between 
them, the series bdng flanked at either end by casts of colossal 
statues from Syria-Hadad and Panamnu. The oth^whe unoccu- 
pied wall space on both sides of the passage is covered with reliefs. 

In the large western hall a continuous wall case on the east side 
contains in succession, beginning at the north, Egyptian antiquities, 
such as statues and busts of divinities and kings; a stone sphinx and 
various funerary paraphernalia; Assyro-Babylonian sculptures and 
utensils; Bibliccd coins and gems; a collection of Bibles and musical 
instruments of the Bible; Italian potteries; and reduced casts of 
upwards of 70 pieces of statuary and bas-reliefs iUustrating Greco- 
Roman sculpture and mythology. Ranged on bases at the south 
end of the hall are casts of large sculpture (the Laoooon, Hermes 
of Andros, etc.), a model of the Parthenon, and a cast of a capital 
from the Temple of Castor in Rome. A selection of Hittite and 
Greek bas-reliefs is displayed on the wall space above the long case. 

The floor space in this hall is occupied by two rows of cases, one 
extending through the middle, the other being on the window side. 
Interspaced between the 9 principal cases of the central row are small 
upright cases containing small cdlections of Italian bronzes, glass^ 
ware, terra^cotta, mosaics and tiles, and potteries and tiles from 
Turlrastan. In the main Berks are installed successively the finer 
and older figured Greek potteries, ranging in date from the 7th to 
the 4th century B. C. ; Greek potteries and Etruscan bronzes ; terras 
cotta figurines and bronzes; bronzes found in various parts of Europe 
but mostly of Roman origin; a collection of stone and bone imple- 
ments, bronxes and potteries from Troy, and a similar collection from 
Armenia' extensive series of Egyptian neolithic stone implements, 
and a few stone implements and other objects from Palestine, attrib- 
ilted to the paleoUthic age; a large series of atone implements and

primitive sf atee of development, and the exhibits in the Museum are 
classified and arranged with the view of conveying all that can be 
brought out by objective material respecting this subject. 

The hall on the east side of the north wing is devoted to the coim- 
tries south of the United States. Beginning at the north are casts 
and originals of ancient Mexican sculptures, utensils, implements, 
and other objects of stone and clay, followed by corresponding 
exhibits from Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa 
Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, 
Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, and the Ouianas. Several 
models of ancient Mexican buildings occupy a part of the central 
floor space, while casts of relief sculptures and glyphio inscriptions 
from Mexico and Central America are displayed on the walls. A 
number of overflow exhibits of minor antiquities belonging to Middle 
and South America have been provisionally installed in the east range. 

Very special interest attaches to the above exhibits as they repre- 
sent the highest achievements in various branches of culture attained 
by any of the American aborigines. The buildings, especially of the 
Maya race, shown in the models are works of astonishing elaboration 
of plan, mechanical perfection of construction, and beauty of embel- 
Ushment, and the reliefs and glyphic inscriptions confirm the view 
that these peoples were advanced to the very threshold of civilization — 
a stage of progress corresponding with that of the most advanced 
nations of the Old World only a few millenniums ago. It is seen that 
the Aztecs of middle Mexico, the Zapotecs of southern Me'xico, and the 
Incas of South America, while in some respects inferior in advance- 
ment to the Mayas of Yucatan and Ouatemala, were also pressing 
hard up against the lower frontiers of the civilized state. The ancient 
peoples of northern Mexico, of the Isthmian region, and of northern 
South America were less advanced, while the great body of tribes of 
eastern and southern South America, ancient as well as modem, had 
not risen above the state of primitive savagery. 

The east range, with the exception of a small space allotted to the 
British possessions, is wholly given up to the archeology of the United 
States. Forty-five large upright cases, distributed in three series 
through the entire length of the range, contain representative exhibits 
for the several States, beginning with Arizona and New Mexico and 
ending with New England. On account of the very large body of 
material from New Mexico, Arizona, and California, a number of 
cases are devoted to each of these States, while in some instances 
single cases acconmiodate the entire representation from two or more 
States, as Vermont, New Hampshire, Idaho, Montana, Mississippi, 
and Texas. Accompanying the above, in table cases, are illustrations 
of special features of exploration and the resultant collections, such 
as the contents of certain village sites, mounds, cemeteries, pueblos, 


cavems; and cliff-dwellings, telling the story of the life and culture 
of the local tribes. Of particular popular interest are models of 
ancient pueblos, cliff-houses and villages, and also, though yet in an 
incomplete state, lay figures, colored to life, showing the practice of 
various industries, especially those concerned in the arts of stone 
working and metallurgy of the ancient peoples. Another series of 
table cases extending through the middle of the range, with a few 
at the sides, hold synoptic collections of relics illustrating each class 
of utensils and implements, as mortars, pestles, stone axes, copper 
implements, etc., conveying to the visitor a dear conception of the 
full range of form, the geographical distribution, and the material 
employed, and, with the aid of labels, the varied uses of the objects. 
Associated with these are numeroiis exhibits elucidating the indus- 
tries of the aborigines, especially the quarrying of flint, obsidian, 
soapstone, and mica; the mining of copper, iron ore, ttu'quois, and 
paint; and the working of stone, metal, day, bone, and shell, these 
beiz^ the most important features of aboriginal industrial life — the 
dynamic agencies of incipient civilization. 

Physical aTithropoloffy. — ^Physical anthropology deals, in a com- 
parative way, with the physical man, or man considered from the 
natural history standpoint, and endeavors to trace the processes and 
laws of his evolution and variation. In conjunction with other 
sciences it seeks a solid f oimdation for safeguarding the present wel- 
fare of the race and regulating its future devdopment, and it also 
constitutes in part the physical basis for the science of psychology. 
The materials which have been assembled by the division represent 
normal man in his many differentiations, and embody extensive 
skdetal, brain, and other series to serve as a basis for research and 
comparison. As a result mainly of recent activities, the coUections 
have been so built up as to comprise the largest and most compre- 
hensive body of subject matter of physical anthropology in America. 
The arrangements in the laboratory are such as to facilitate the 
examination of material and the study of methods by specialists and 
students, and in two of the rooms a systematic exhibition series has 
been installed. Some of the more important subjects illustrated in 
the latter are the evolution of the human skdeton, the skull of pri- 
mates compared with that of man, geologically ancient man and his 
forerunners, neolithic crania, the anatomical connection of present 
with early man and preceding forms, the devdopment of the human 
skdeton, variations in the human skdeton, and senility and miscel- 
laneous features. These exhibits are supplemented by numerous 
busts of pure-blood types of American Indians, portraits of promi- 
nent anthropologLsts, and a lai^e series of modem and early anthro- 
pometric instruments. 



The exhibition collectioiis of biology, at present restricted to 
zoology, comprehend a greater number of subdivisions than those of 
anthropology or geology. The principal of these are a general and 
comprehensive representation of the various groups of animals, in 
each of which groups the specimens are arranged f aunally ; a system- 
atic series; a series illustrating comparative anatomy and the osteology 
of vertebrates; a series of domesticated animals; and a faunal series 
for the District of Columbia. Of a supplementary nature are a num- 
ber of special exhibits illustrating interesting phases in zoology and 
noteworthy features of the collection. 

The collections of the first subdivision occupy nearly two-thirds of 
the entire area allotted to the department, including the west wing 
and western section of the west range in the first story, and somewhat 
more than one-half of the same wing in the second story, with an 
aggregate of about 41,058 square feet of floor space. The other 
subjects are all provided for in the second story, where some 6,633 
square feet are assigned to comparative anatomy and osteology; 
8,459 square feet, to the systematic collection; 2,640 square feet, to 
the domestic animals; 1,724 square feet, to the faunal collection of 
the District of Columbia; and 3,884 square feet, to the special exhibits. 

Oeneral aeries. — This series has been planned and arranged to 
illustrate for each group of animals or, in the case of the lower animals, 
for assemblages of groups, the geographical distribution of forms or 
types, which, under the restrictions as to space, can in the main only 
be carried out to the extent of showing the more important or more 
characteristic forms of each region. With regard to North America, 
however, the resources of the Museum permit and the general inter- 
ests demand a more complete and detailed representation. Six 
primaiy regions have been recognized for the land animals, namely, 
the nearctic, or North America; the neotropical, or Central and 
South America; the palearctic, or northern and central Afiia, all of 
Europe, and Africa north of the Desert of Sahara; the Ethiopian, 
or Africa south of the Sahara; the oriental, or India and the Malay 
Archipelago; and the Australasian, including Australia, New Guinea, 
and New Zealand. 

The great majority of the specixnens exhibited are mounted singly, 
but in the case of some of the more important and remarkable forms 
groups have been prepared, accompanied by accessories, to illustrate 
features of the habits and environment of the species. In all the 
preparations and especially those of recent years, it haa been the 
endeavor to produce only work of the highest standard, combining 
scientific accuracy in reproducing form and pose with artistic skill 
in the manner of presentation. As a result, the collection contains 


many examples of the taxidennist's art not surpassed elsewhere, and 
some which are probably imequaled. There remains to be replaced 
or made over, however, a certain amoimt of old material which has 
been retained on display in order that the several series may not 
present too many gaps. 

Manvmdls. — TTie manunals occupy the entire first story of the west 
wing except a small section in the north aisle, or a floor space of 
22,112 square feet. The great skylighted area contains the North 
American fauna, and also a limited number of forms from Central 
and South America. Most conspicuous among the features of this 
hall are 8 large groups representing the American bison, moose, 
musk ox, pronghom, barren-ground caribou, woodland caribou. 
Rocky Mountain sheep, and Rocky Moimtain goat. In cases against 
the walls, mounted singly, are d^erent species of bears, seals, and 
ungulates. In the eastern part of the hall, that nearest the rotimda, 
are shown many of the smaller carnivores, such as wolves, foxes, cats, 
and skunks; small mustelids, such as the weasels and minks; an 
exceptionally fine specimen of the Alaskan sea otter; a family of 
badgers at their burrow; a number of the remarkable Texan arma- 
dillo among characteristic desert vegetation; a large walrus from 
Bering Sea; and sea lions and fur seeds from CaUfomia and Alaska. 
In the western part of the hall are the rodents, or rabbits, squirrels, 
mice, etc.; the insectivores, such as the shrews and moles; the bats; a 
group of prairie dogs near their burrow in company with a burrowing 
owl; and a group of opossums at the root of a tree, under which their 
rude nest is shown. Two wall and two small table cases at the 
extreme end of this area contain the mammals of Central and South 
America, a very incomplete series. 

The palearctic faima, which has been assigned the eastern part of 
the north aisle to a distance of about 74 feet from the pavilion wall, 
begins with a group of Spitzbergen polar bears, followed successively 
by a fine specimen of the Mongolian tiger; many representatives of 
the ungulates, such as the roebuck, the true elk or European moose, 
the European bison, the chamois of the Alps, the rare and remarkable 
Chinese antelope called the takin, and various wild sheep; and 
numerous examples of the smaller carnivores, insectivores, and 
rodents. Among the rodents is a series of various species of rats so 
mounted as to clearly present the differences between the several 
forms of these animals which have lately attracted so much attention 
as carriers of the germs of bubonic plague. 

The oriental series occupies a position and area in the south aisle 
corresponding with those of the palearctic fauna in the north aisle. 
It is adjoined by the Australasian series, limited to a single bay of 18^ 
feet, and this in turn is followed by the Ethiopian or African series, 
which is continued into and fills the entire outer end of the wing. 


with an aggregate of about 7,760 square feet of space. Most 
prominent in the oriental series are three groups of monkeys mounted 
in sections of tree tops of the forests of Borneo, the work of able 
tajddermists by whom they aJso were collected, which guarantees 
their truthfulness to nature. The largest group is of the orang-utan, 
one of the most manlike of the great apes. The others are of the 
long-armed gibbon, also usually referred to the anthropoid apes, and 
the proboscis monkey, remarkable for its protruding nose. Bdong- 
ing likewise to this fauna are other oriental monkeys; several 
ungulates, such as the tapir, antelope, and deer; a selected series of 
lilalayan squirrels; a number of carnivores, including a fine example 
of the Indian tiger; a model of the Ganges dolphin, a large dugong or 
sea cow, fruit bats, flying lemurs, the Indian pangolin, and charax> 
teristic oriental rodents, including the large Malayan flying squirrels. 
The region of Australasia is represented by numerous species of 
kangaroo, the wombats, Hie marsupial wolf, the two echidnas, the 
remarkable duckbill, and a specimen of the dingo or AustraUan dog. 
The African mammals installed in the south aisle comprise wild 
hogs, monkeys, including the anthropoid gorilla and chimpanzee, 
lemurs, hyenas, jackals, and various large cats, the singular aardvark 
or African anteater, and examples of the African pangolin or manis 
and of insectivores. The most striking part of the African exhibi- 
tion, however, is in the wide hall at the outer end of the wing, which 
contains 5 groups of large and characteristic forms, the latest pro- 
ductions of the taxidermist's art, illustrating to a marked degree 
how effectively the very presence of great animals in their natural 
habitat can be represented in permanent museum preparations. The 
first of these groups consists of a family of lions, a male, two females 
and two cubs, coming down to a water hole dug by zebras in a dry 
river bed. Large as is the case containing this exhibit, it is greatly 
exceeded by the other four, each of which measures 17 feet by 12 feet 
and requires for the sides the largest size of plate glass manufactured. 
Next to the Uon group comes that of the kongoni or Cooke's 
hartebeest, comprising six individuals mounted in different attitudes 
in the midst of characteristic surroundings, the earth and plants for 
this purpose having been brought from the haunts of the species in 
Africa. Third in the series is a superb presentation of the white 
rhinoceros, male, female and calf, with accessories also from Africa, 
which is followed by groups of the water buffalo and Grevy's zebra, 
the latter including two oryx antelopes, which are often associated 
with the zebra in nature. The lion, buffalo, zebra and antelope 
groups were prepared by Mr. G. B. Turner, chief taxidermist of the 
Museum; and those of the hartebeests and rhinoceri by Mr. James 
L. Clark, of New York. The specimens used were selected from the 


collection made in 1909 and 1910 by the &nith8oniiui African Expedi- 
tion under the direction of Col. Theodore Roosevelt. 

In wall cases partly surrounding the above exhibits is shown a great 
variety of selected types of African antelopes, besides representatives 
of other groups, including a young African elephant and a fine speci- 
men of the nearly extinct Burchell's zebra. The following are dis- 
played separately, namely, a group of horse-tail monkeys from 
Kilimanjaro, represented as playing among the foliage of a large tree; 
a very large giraffe, too tall to be inclosed in glass; and a well- 
preserved example of the recently discovered and very rare okapi, a 
near relative of the giraffe and an inhabitant of the impenetrable 
forests of the Belgian Congo. 

Birds. — ^The exhibition of birds begins in the north aisle of the 
west wing on the main floor, of which it occupies a length of about 
92 feet, and is continued thence into and throughout the western 
section of the west range a distance of 131 feet 4 inches, covering a 
total floor area of 9,652 square feet. The wing contains the pale- 
arctic, the oriental, and the African faunas. In the first mentioned 
are such familiar European forms as the stork, lammeigeier, bus- 
tard, nightingale, true robin, true oriole, capercailzie, black grouse, 
true partridge, and quail. A pair of English song thrushes with 
their nest full of young constitutes a dainty piece of group-^makiag, 
and conspicuous in the series is a beautiful display of the various 
Asiatic pheasants. Among the oriental birds are the grotesque 
Indian '' adjutant," the wild peacock, the wild jimgle fowl, from which 
our domestic breeds are supposed to have been derived, various hom- 
bills, which are among the most characteristic of oriental birds, and 
two showy groups, one of the rhinoceros bird, the odier of the argus 
pheasant. In tiie African series, which is as remarkable as the 
oriental, are seen the diminutive love birds, the whydah finches 
with their long, flowing tail feathers, the weaver birds, gorgeous 
roUers, many parrots, the plantain eaters, the emerald cuckoos, the 
sunbirds, a goatsucker with two remarkable appendages, wild 
Guinea fowl, the crowned crane, the saddle-billed stork, and the 
sacred ibis. A bird rarely seen in museums, the large whale**headed 
stork, which inhabits solely the country of the Upper Nile, is repre- 
sented by two exceptionally fine specimens. 

Entering the west range, one comes first upon the Atistralasian 
series, which contains a great variety of splendidly colored birds. 
Especially notable is a fine display of birds of paradise and of parrots. 
Among other forms shown are the giant kingfisher, known as the 
''laughing-jackass," the brush turkey, which places its eggs in 
mounds of soil and decaying vegetation to be hatched without further 
attention from the parents, the wonderful ''crowned" pigeons from 
New Guinea, the black swan, the cassowary, the emu, the kiwis of 


New Zealaad, and several species of penguins. The kea, or sheep- 
eating parrots of New Zealand, and the lyre birds of Australia are 
represented in two groups; and installed in a case by themselves are 
the smaller passerine birds of Australia, New Zealand, and HawaiL 
Next follows the neotropical or Central and South American f aima, 
with a large assemblage of parrots, including the goigeous macaws, 
and of toucans, with their huge vari-colored bills. Other typical 
forms are the quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala, with its 
graceful, resplendent tail; the curassow and ocellated turkey, among 
game birds; the humming birds, of which there is a rich assortment; 
the black-necked swan and other water and shore birds, the curious 
hoactzin, the condor, the rhea or South American ostrich, the tinamou, 
and the penguin. 

The last of the avian famias, the nearctic or North American, is 
allotted a much larger area than any of the others, aggregating 4,225 
square feet, to permit of a fuller representation of the birds belong- 
ing to thb country, and, therefore, of most direct interest to our own 
people, and especially to students and amateurs, the plan being to 
show as many of the species as possible, and to illustrate marked 
differences when such occur in the appearance of the male, female, 
and young of the same species. An enimieration of the species 
^ exhibited would be out of place here, but included among the rarer 
forms and more striking features are the great auk and Labrador 
duck, both of which are extinct; and the following mounted in groups, 
namely, the passenger pigeon, of which only a single living specimen, 
preserved in the Cincinnati Zoological Garden, is known; the Caro- 
lina parrakeet which is nearing extinction, two hawks fighting over 
a ruffed grouse, the American flamingoes and their nests, Mexican 
japanaa among water lilies, the butcher birds and their ''larder," 
the prairie chicken and sage hen, and the ruffed or dusky grouse. 

BeptHes, bairiiehians and JUhee. — ^These groups occupy jointly a 
space in the large hall at the outer end of the west wing in the second 
story, measuring about 85 feet long by 46 feet 6 inches wide. The 
fishes are installed in large wall eases on two sides of the hall and in a 
few table cases, while the reptiles and batrachians are at present 
wholly provided for in table cases. The most interesting part of 
the exhibition of reptiles and batrachians is in the form of casts 
made from fresh specimens and painted in excellent imitation of the 
natural colors. The species so represented are mainly North Ameri- 
can, with a few exotic ones, such as are occasionally brought here 
alive and kept in captivity. Among tropical forms axe the big 
pythons and boas, the common cobra and the king cobra, the latter 
two being considered the most deadly of all snakes. The exhibit 
of foreign species is being rounded out by means of alcoholic speci- 
mens, which are in course of preparation for the purpose. The 


fishes are shown in the same way as the reptiles, the collection of 
casts representing a wide range of forms. Most of the casts are 
placed against wall surfaces in the backs of cases, but the flounders 
are displayed on a sandy bottom in table cases. A special feature 
consists of a series of enlarged models of deep-sea fishes of extraor- 
dinary appearance, such as the grotesque pelican fish with its 
enormous mouth, the viper fish with its protruding fangs, the angler 
with its light-emitting bulb, and the luminous fish, conspicuous in 
having niunerous phosphorescent spots along the body. The only 
group so far introduced is one of the so-called walking fishes which 
are represented as skipping about by means of their pectoral fins 
on the mud flat of a mangrove swamp. 

Invertebrates. — ^The fauna! display of marine and other inverte- 
brates has been assigned the south hall in the second story of the 
west wing, which measures 169 feet 7 inches long by 31 feet 6 inches 
wide. As the exhibit is being built up wholly anew and will con- 
tain a large number of specimens prepared in a manner not previously 
attempted, the work upon the collection has, of necessity, advanced 
much more slowly than in any of the other sections. It is still in a 
very incomplete state, but by the introduction of certain temporary 
installations the hall has been made sufficiently presentable to warrant 
its being kept open to visitors. As regards marine invertebrates, 
the scheme contemplates the illustration of a number of distinct 
littoral f atmal regions, and of the deep sea, by characteristic forms 
belonging to the various groups of animals which inhabit them, 
to be supplemented by group assemblages in which relationships 
and environment can be more definitely demonstrated. The littoral 
faunas with which most progress has been made are three in number, 
namely, from the Arctic Ocean to Cape CSod, from Gape Ood to Cape 
Hatteras, and the Floridian. 

Vertebrate osteology and eomparatm wnatomy. — The collections 
illustrating these subjects occupy the entire length of the north side 
of the west wing in the second story, an area 216 feet long by 31 feet 
2 inches wide. The osteological series is, in its purpose, most nearly 
akin to, and may, in fact, be regarded as a part of, the systematic 
collection in the adjoining range. It represents only selected exam- 
ples of supergeneric types with no attempt at showing specific differ- 
ences, and, notwithstanding the difficulty of exhibiting skeletons 
in a manner attractive to the public, it is felt that the installation 
has been made especially effective and instructive. 

In the passageway between the wing and the range are the mounted 
skeletons of a horse and a man, labeled to bring out the homologies 
of the bones in these very dissimilar species. In the middle of the 
adjacent space is a series of skeletons of the primates, showing the 
differences and similarities in the bony structiure of the various groups 


from the most generalized types to the orang, chimpanzee, gorilla, 
and man. At the western end of the hall are skeletons of carnivores, 
pinnipeds and small whales, followed by those of other mammal 
groups, noteworthy among which are the Asiatic and African ele- 
phants, the giraffe and the American bison. Provision has been 
made for suspending the skeletons of whales of medium size from the 
ceiling, but for the skeletons of large species accommodations must 
be foimd elsewhere. After the mammals come the birds, reptiles, 
batrachians and fishes, completing the systematic series. Notable 
among these are the sli^letons of snakes, beautiful in their curvatiure 
and repetition of uniform detail, and tiie cartilaginous skeletons of 
certain fishes, which require to be displayed in a preserving fluid. 
Next, in a single case, is illustrated the comparative skeletal anatomy 
of the vertebrate classes by means of the articulated and disarticu- 
lated skeletons of a fish, a tailed amphibian, a frog, a lizard, a turtie, 
a bird, a monotreme and a mammal. At the eastern end of the haU 
are several cases of anatomical representations in the form of prepar- 
ations from the animal body itself and of finely executed models. 
The collection ends with an illustration of the chemical constituents 
of animal bodies. 

Syaiematie series. — ^Beginning at its juncture with the west wing, 
this series extends through the western section of the west range 
and some 90 feet into the northern section. It does not, however, 
occupy the entire width of the range, as the space between the line 
of piers and the court walls is used for special topics. The total 
floor area devoted to the subject is about 8,460 square feet. 

This collection is designed to present a general review or synopsis 
of the animal kingdom, arranged in systematic sequence from the 
lower to the higher groups. The family ia the lowest subdivision 
recognized, one species being used for each, except where great 
variety of form exists within the family, when some of the more 
divergent types are added. With the vertebrates, except some of 
tiie lowest forms, the representation is restricted to external form 
and characters, the internal parts being elucidated by the anatomical 
collection above described. With the invertebrates, however, the 
complete structure, so far as it is brought out in any part of the 
exhibition, is illustrated in this series. A wide diversity of method 
for the representation of forms has been called for. Preparations 
of the animals themselves have been utilized to the fullest extent 
possible and compose the great bulk of the collection. For the 
minute forms and for such larger ones as are still among the desid- 
erata of the Musemn, recourse has been had to models and drawings. 
For some of the largest vertebrates of which it is impracticable to 
display full-grown specimens, young individuals or pictures have 
been substituted. The whales have presented the greatest diffi- 


culties and the few species so far included in the series are illustrated 
by means of casts and models. 

Domestic animals. — ^A full demonstratbn of all the races of ani- 
mals that have been produced by domestication would require a 
very much greater extent of floor space than could be spared for 
that subject, and such a display, moreover, is not within the purpose 
of the Museum exhibition. In an area of about 2,640 square feet 
adjoining the systematic series, however, an attempt is being made 
to illustrate some of the more remarkable results of man's inter- 
ference with the natural evolution of animals, though even within 
the limitation fixed the series is still very incomplete. The collection 
includes a number of skeletons designed to show that the modifica- 
tions following domestication are not solely confined to external 
characters, and specimens of the wild stock where such is known 
have been or will be introduced. 

Among birds the domestic fowl is most prominently represented, 
many breeds, though not nearly all that are recognized by fanciers, 
being exhibited. Though prepared several years ago and requiring 
to be amplified, the collection as it is furnishes a good idea of the 
range of variation that has been produced, and includes many 
specimens that were awarded premiums at important shows. It is 
partly installed in a group arrangement with surroimdings in imitsr 
tion of a barnyard, and partly as individual specimens on shelves. 
The turkey and peafowl are also represented, as are many breeds 
of the common pigeon, the latter being centered about a dovecot. 
Of mammals comparatively few fonns are at present shown, among 
these being the horse, dog, sheep, goat, two forms of Asiatic cattle, 
namely, the yak and the zebu or Indian ox, and three representatives 
of the camel family, the llama, the alpaca and the Arabian camel. 

Fauna of the District of Columbia. — ^The local f aimal exhibit, the 
last of the regular biological series, still only in process of formation, 
is allotted 1,724 square feet of floor space at the eastern end of the 
northern section of the west range, where it adjoins the north wing. 
It is plaimed to make this collection of particular interest to the 
local students of biology and an important aid to the teaching of 
zoology in the District schools. Every species of animal living in 
the District of Columbia is intended to be represented by at least a 
single specimen, and also such former habitants, as the game birds, 
which have been driven £rom the region through the agency of man. 
The groups in which more or less progress has already been made are 
the mammals, birds, reptiles and batrachians, fishes and mollusks. 

Special exhUnts. — For the special zoological features provision has 
been made in the space intervening between the row of large rectan- 
gular piers and the court walls in the second story of the west range. 
Measuring about 17| feet wide, this space is divided by the piers into 


successive bays each about 18^ feet across, furnishing appropriate 
dimensions for these several exhibits. As little material had been 
prepared for them before the occupation of the building, they will 
remain in a formative stage for some time yet, though in several 
subjects the installations are sufficiently advanced to be opened to 
the public. These are as follows: The eggs and nests of birds, animal 
arcUtecture, phases of evolution, mimicry, albinism, melanism, the 
cotton boll weevil, and the distribution of the Rocky Mountain 
grasshopper. Another special exhibition already fuUy installed 
consists of the beautiful collection of corals secured by the United 
States Exploring Expedition around the World from 1838 to 1842, 
imder conmiand of Lieut, (afterwards Sear Admiral) Charles Wilkes, 
U. S. Navy, comprising a large share of the type specimens described 
by James D. Dana in his classic work on the subject. 


The exhibition collections of the department of geology are classi- 
fied and arranged imder four general heads, namely, systematic 
geology, mineralogy, applied geology and paleontology. 

Systematic geology. — Systematic or physical and chemical geology 
occupies the eastern section of the east range in the first story to a 
distance of 131 feet 4 inches from the adjoining wing, with a floor 
area of approximately 6,769 square feet. First in order come the 
rock or petrological exhibits, i;istaUed in 1 wall and 5 upright floor 
cases. They begin with a series of the more common elements found 
in either a free or combined state in the rocks forming any essential 
feature of the earth's crust; are followed by a series of the ordinary 
rock-forming minerals representing the combinations of these ele- 
ments, and these, in turn, by a series illustrating all the common 
rock types in the form of hand specimens about 3^ by 4j^ inches in 
lateral dimensions. Supplementing these introductory collections 
are several series showing the changes which rock masses have imder- 
gone through chemical and dynamic agencies, such as crushing, 
faulting, and the various phases of metamorphism. They are con- 
tained in 7 upright floor cases of double-imit size, and are classified 
as follows: Rock weathering, glacial phenomena, concretions, faults 
and other structural forms, calcareous and siliceous sinter, cave 
phenomena and other illustrations of cold water deposition, vol- 
canoes and volcanic phenom'ena, deep-sea dredgix^ and minor 
geological phenomena. 

Constituting an especially interesting feature of the hall are the 
meteorites, which, while properly classed as rocks, are kept apart as 
illustrating world-making materials. The collection fills 1 large and 
2 small cases, and an especially lai^e example is mounted on a separate 
base. It numbers 713 specimens, representing 321 falls, and ranks 

32377*'— NAT MU8 1913 3 


third among museum collections in this coimtry, being exceeded only 
by those in the Field Museum of Natural History and the American 
Museum of Natural History, while abroad it is surpassed only by the 
collections in the British Museum and the museiun of natural history 
at Vienna. Also installed in this hall is the Shepard collection of 
meteorites, comprising 464 specimens, representing 237 falls, which 
has been on deposit in the Museum for some years. 

Writing upon the subject. Dr. George P. Merrill has remarked that 
the interest in this collection is partly geological and partly astronomi- 
cal. It is now generally understood that whatever theory one may 
accept regardkig world formation, for the materials of which the world 
is formed one must look to outside sources — ^that is, to space. While 
astronomy and the spectroscope have shown a close similarity, if not 
identity, in kinds of materials throughout the universe, the meteorites 
after dl give the only really tangible clue to the stony nature of 
celestial bodies. Their study with particular reference to their 
efficiency as world-making material is, therefore, peculiarly instruc- 
tive, and it is greatly to be deplored that their rarity and the fascina- 
tion attached to them by reason of their source has caused them to 
be sought by those who are mere collectors, and has so forced their 
prices as almost to prohibit their use in scientific research. 

Mineralogy, — ^The collections of mineralogy and applied geology 
occupy jointly the entire second story of the east wing. Mineralogy, 
however, is confined to the hall on the south side of the light well, 
measuring 169 feet 7 inches long by 31 feet 6 inches wide and furnish- 
ing 5,342 square feet of floor space. The installation comprehends 
three series of exhibits. The first is a systematic one, in which an 
attempt ]a made to show all the known mineral species, which are 
arranged according to the classification of E. S. Dana, in his " System 
of Mineralogy," in 14 American cases along the north side of the hall. 
The second consists of specimens of the same nature, less systemati- 
cally arranged, but notable for their beauty and exceptional size, 
which latter prevents their incorporation in the systematic series. 
It is mainly displayed in 9 upright floor cases on the south side of the 
hall, and conspicuous among its features are illustrations of the 
occurrence in nature of siKca and carbonate of lime. A group of 
Brazilian amethysts, a large beryl from Ackworth, N. H., ^d a 
copper bowlder from Ontonagon, Mich., are moimted on bases, \ and 
contained in a small case is an exhibit of such nongaseous elements 
as occur imcombined in nature. 

The third series in the mineral hall consists of the gems and precious 
stones composing what is known as the Isaac Lea Collection, whicl^ 
ranks second among the public collections of its kind in this coxmtry. 
It had its beginning in an exhibit of precious stones made by th^ 
National Museum at the Cincinnati and New Orleans expositions int. 


■ * 

1884-S5y was added to by the purchase of the Leidy collection of gems 
in 1894, and was later very materially increased through the acquisi- 
tion, by bequest, of the important collection of Dr. Isaac Lea, of 
Philadelphia. Since then its growth has been fairly rapid and sys- 
tematic, owing largely to the generous cooperation of the late Rev. Dr. 
L. T. Chamberlain, son-in-law of Dr. Lea and an honorary associate 
of the Museum. The collection is installed in a series of flat-top 
cases, of new and exceptionally pleasing pattern, which extends 
through the center of the hall. It bears the same relation to the 
systematic collection of minerals as does the collection of building 
and ornamental stones to that of systematic geology, and has naturally 
proved to be one of the most popular of all the exhibits. An effort 
has been made to represent all the more common gems and precious 
stones with special reference to those occurring in North America. 
The specimens are largely in cut and polished form, ready for use. In 
extending the exhibit it is planned, so far as possible, to show the 
unworked material side by side with the cut, in order that the public 
may become acquainted with the appearance of the different varieties 
in their natural state. It is also intended to give special attention to 
the possible utilization for ornamental purposes of certain stones 
which are in themselves of little commercial value, and this has 
already been done to good advantage in a series of cabochons cut 
from fossil wood. Among the more imique and striking specimens 
in the collection are a large, rich green, brilliant cut tourmaline 
weighing 57^ carats, from Paris, Me. ; sapphires and rubies from the 
now abandoned Jenks corundum mine in North Carolina; a 15-carat 
cut emerald from Portland, Conn.; and a series of cut hiddenites 
from Alexander Coimty, N. C. 

As introductory to and grading into the province of economic geol- 
ogy, there is installed at the outer end of the hall a selected series of 
the rocks and minerals from the diamond mines of South Africa, the 
gift of Mr. Gardner F. Williams, and another of gold nuggets and 
crystals, each displayed in a single case. The large copper bowlder 
above referred to is also placed here. 

Applied geology. — ^The space devoted to economic or applied geology 
is the north hall and outer end of the east wing in the second story, 
amounting to 10,585 square feet. The classification is here also in 
three series, first, the metallic ores, such as those of gold, silver, copper, 
etc.; second, the nonmetallic minerals; and, third, the building and 
ornamental stones. The metallic and nonmetallic exhibits are con- 
tained in 5 double and 10 single-unit upright floor cases and 15 
American cases. They are planned to show, as far as possible, typical 
material with reference to both geological and geographical distribu- 
tion, and, as at present installed, they are believed to be second to none 
in the country in completeness and systematic arrangement. 


The collection of building and ornamental stones owes its concep- 
tion to Dr. George W. Hawes, curator of geology in the Museum dur- 
ing the last year and a half of his life, who imdertook, ia connection 
with the work of the Tenth Census, a systematic study of the building 
stone resources of the United States, the results of which were pub- 
lished in one of the reports of that Census. Since then every effort 
has been made to keep the collection up to date, and it is believed now 
to fairly represent all of the kinds of building and ornamental stones 
obtainable in the country, and also the more important materials of 
the same nature which are imported from abroad. It comprises at 
present 2,548 specimens, mostly in the form of 4-inch cubes, which 
are installed in 18 floor upright cases specially designed for the pur- 
pose. In addition to these there are 13 rectangular bases or pedestals, 
with stone panels and tops, for the exhibition of certain materials of 
which it was desirable to have larger samples than could be incor- 
porated in the regular systematic series. In connection with the 
building up of this collection as complete records as possible have been 
kept of the tests made upon the varieties of stone represented by the 
samples, and of the weathering and other qualities of building stones 
in general, making the collection of extreme usefulness in respect to 
all industries with which it may have relations. 

Paleontology. — ^The paleontological collections have entire posses- 
sion of the main story in the east wing, in which paleobotany occupies 
the north aisle, 151 feet long by 31 feet 8 inches wide, with 4,782 square 
feet of floor space; the fossil invertebrates, the southern side of the 
wing to a distance of about 198 feet from the pavilion and a width of 
31 feet 11 inches, with 6,320 square feet of floor space; and the fossil 
vertebrates, the large skylighted area and most of the outer end of 
the wing, with 13,893 square feet of floor space. 

The exhibition in paleobotany comprises a stratigraphical series of 
specimens illustrating all the important plant-bearing horizons, and a 
number of special features. The Carboniferous material, derived from 
the Lacoe bequest, is especially notable for the number, large size and 
splendid preservation of the specimens. The Mesozoic and Cenozoio 
plants are less well represented, but this condition will be remedied 
with the progress of the work of the Geological Survey in the western 
coal fields. The interest of the public in these natural wonders has 
led to the introduction of a case of petrified wood from the fossil forest 
of Arizona, the Yellowstone National Park and other localities, and 
many of the specimens have been polished to bring out their rich 
coloring. A number of large tree trunks and other exhibits have been 
arranged between the cases; the south wall has been partly utilized 
for enlarged drawings and specimens, and a large, very primitive 
Devonian tree, and an exceptionally large and fine example of a Car- 
boniferous Lepidodendron have been mounted against the west wall. 


The exhibition in invertebrate paleontology begins with a large 
mount showing a Cambrian sea beach, with numerous ripple marks 
and animal tracks crossing the sandstone. Large slabs illustrating 
the various types of near-shore sedimentation with their contained 
fossil remains, and colonies of Cretaceous, Devonian, and Mississippian 
crinoids, further represent the occurrence of ancient Ufe; while the 
superposition of various rock formations is shown by means of a 
geolo^cal colunm of the strata found in New Hampshire. A case of 
specimens from the Middle Cambrian deposits near Field, British 
Columbia, serves to demonstrate both the significance of a fossil 
fauna and the perfection of preservation sometimes obtaining 
among fossil forms. Next are illustrated the general methods of 
fossilization and the usual conditions of preservation of fossils, 
followed by a number of cases devoted to the evolution of all the 
important groups of fossil invertebrates. The very rare medusae, 
the crinoids and the insects are especially well represented in this 
series, though in no group is the material scanty. For the student 
of geology a stratigraphic series of the common and characteristic 
fossils of the various geological horizons of North America, accom- 
panied by hand specimens of the characteristic rocks of each forma- 
tion, occupies an adapted form of American case which extends 
uninterruptedly along the north wall. Mounted directly above 
this exhibit is a continuous geological section across the American 
continent on a scale of 2 miles to the inch, and measuring 90 feet 
long. Lack of space has prevented the introduction of collections 
illustrating geographical distribution in any detail, the only exception 
in this regard being the I. H. Harris collection from the widely-known 
Cincinnati region, which is displayed in 2 cases. 

On account of their great variation in size, it has not been feasible 
to arrange the exhibits in vertebrate paleontology as systematically 
as in the two other sections of the division. Li a general way, 
however, the western half of the large hall has been mainly allotted 
to the larger mammals, and the eastern part to the reptiles and birds. 
Occupying the center of the floor, inmiediately after entering from 
the rotunda, is the restored skeleton of an immense whale-like 
creature, popularly known as the zeuglodon (BasHosaurua), which 
inhabited the seas of the southern coastal plain of the United States 
in early Tertiary times. While numerous fragments of the bones 
of this animal have been found, the specimen on exhibition is the 
most perfect one known. To the right and left, respectively, of the 
zeuglodon, are quite complete skeletons of the American mastodon 
(Mammut americanum) from the peat bogs of Michigan, and the 
giant deer (Alee gigarUea), commonly termed the Irish elk, from 
the Pleistocene clays of Ireland. Series of smaller specimens are 
arranged in cases and framed moimtings along the walls, among them 


being iUustrations of the evolution of the horse and many forms of 
fishes. In the center of the eastern part of the skylighted hall 
is the large, miique, three-homed dinosaur (Triceratops prorsus), 
of which the skull alone measures 6 feet long. Mounted upright 
against the adjacent walls are two other exceptionally fine specimens 
of dinosaurs, besides an example of the duck-billed reptilci Trachodon 
annectena, over 26 feet long, and a skeleton of the carnivorous reptile, 
CeraioaauTua nasicomiSf of almost equal size. Another exhibit of 
special interest consists of the skeleton of the large armoured dinosaur 
Stegoaaurua atenopa, accompanied by a full-sized model representing 
this reptile as it appeared in life. In the eastern part of the wing 
are exhibited the extinct birds, of which the toothed Heaperomia 
from the chalk deposits of Kansas and the giant moa are especially 




The appropriations for the maintenance and operations of the 
National Museum for the year covered by this report, namely, from 
July 1, 1912, to June 30, 1913, inclusive, contained in the sundry 
civil act approved August 24, 1912, were as follows: 

Preeervation of collections |300, 000 

Pumiture and fixtuzes 50, 000 

Heating and lighting 60, 000 

Building repairs 10,000 

Purchase of books 2, 000 

Postage ' 500 

Printing and binding 34, 000 

Total 446,500 

The sundry civil act approved June 23, 1913, makes the following 
provisions for the year ending June 30, 1914: 

Preservation of collections $300, 000 

Furniture and fixtures 60, 000 

Heating and lighting 50, 000 

Building repairs 10, 000 

Purchase of books 2,000 

Postage 500 

Printing and binding 37,500 

Total 450,000 


The most important repair work of the year consisted in further 
remedying certain defects in the roofs of the new buildings to which 
attention was called in the last report. The remainder of the inse- 
cure copper cresting, amounting to about 736 running feet, was 
ref astened in what is regarded as a thoroughly satisfactory manner, 
and some 1,524 lineal feet of the damaged copper gutters were 
replaced with the best quality of tin, which it is confidently expected 
will be lasting. The repairs to the older Museum building were 
mostly in the interior. The ceilings in this structiu-e consist mainly 
of wooden lathing attached to the under side of the roofs and filled 
in with plaster which has gradually disintegrated and from time to 
time has fallen in such quantities as to menace the collections. A 
covering of thin sheet steel has proved the best and most economical 



remedy for this condition, and during last year the ceilings over all 
or parts of four halls were so treated. Some of the walls were also 
pointed up and painted, and the renovatioQ of the toilet rooms, 
begun the previous year, was completed. In the Smithsonian build- 
ing the many large windows in the main or exhibition story, which 
have received but slight attention for many years, were found to be 
so dilapidated as to necessitate the entire renewal of 45 of the sashes 
and the extensive overhauling of the others. Tlie roofs required 
some repairs, and the west basement of the building, formerly occu- 
pied by the alcoholic collections, was partly renovated, though its 
floors, which are badly rotted, have still to be replaced. 

The power plant was operated satisfactorily and with comparatively 
few repairs. As in the previous year, it was closed down during two 
months of the sunotmer, July and August, for overhauling, the work 
being done by Museum employees and such electric current as was 
required being purchased from the local power company at greatly 
reduced rates. The consumption of coal amounted to 2,660 tons, 
and steam was generated for heating purposes from October 1, 1912, 
to May 17, 1913. Improvements made in the distributing pipes to 
the older buildings are expected to result in a much more economical 
service. It is also interesting to note that in the production of ice 
by the plant introduced for that purpose three years ago a saving 
has already been effected which exceeds the ori^al cost of the 
plant. Among new mechanical features added were a central air 
compressor plant for more economically furnishing power for certain 
minor purposes, and three thermostats for automatically regulating 
the temperature in the auditorium. The installation of devices for 
automatically opening and closing the doors on the north passenger 
elevators was begun , though not completed, before the close of the 

Electric-lighting fixtures were added in places not heretofore 
permanently provided with them as follows: A circular Frink 
mirror reflector, carrying 56 40-watt timgsten lamps, above the eye 
of the ceiling dome of the rotunda; a series of 24 suspended fixtures 
in the second gallery of the south pavilion; and a system of low con- 
cealed lamps in the upper gallery of the pavilion, with reflectors 
arranged to throw the light upward against the waUs and ceilings. 
Before the end of the year a contract had been concluded for fur- 
nishing 8 bronze electric-light standards to be placed at the comers 
of the pier balconies at the height of the first gallery for the general 
illmnination of the rotunda; and the work of replacing the drinking- 
water faucets in the public halls with sanitary bubbling foimtains 
had been commenced. 

The furniture acquired during the year comprised 192 exhibition 
cases, 256 storage cases and pieces of laboratory furniture, 271 pieces 


of office and misceUaneoiis furniture, 1,585 unit specimen drawers 
of wood, 500 insect drawers, and 1,061 miscellaneous specimen 
drawers. An inventory of all furniture at the close of the year shows 
that there were on hand at that time 3,414 exhibition cases, 6,616 
storage cases and pieces of laboratory furniture, 3,270 pieces of office 
and miscellaneous furniture, 37,660 unit specimen drawers of wood, 
4,712 unit specimen drawers of steel, 7,839 insect drawers, and 
16^024 miscellaneous specimen drawers and boxes of various sizes. 


The total number of accessions received during the year was 
1,378, embracing as permanent acquisitions approximately 302,132 
specimens and objects, apportioned among the several branches of 
the Museum as follows: Anthropology, 26,999; zoology, 113,509; 
botany, 140,015; geology, 5,569; paleontology, 14,716; textiles and 
vegetable products, 1,312; National Oallery of Art, 12 paintingB. 
Of the specimens assigned to anthropology over 20,000 were postage 
stamps belonging in the division of history; and of zoological speci- 
mens over 97,000 were insects, moUusks, and other invertebrates. 
The loans received for exhibition comprised several hundred objects, 
principally historical and ethnological, but including 18 paintings 
and 2 pieces of sculpture for the National Gallery of Art. 


Eihnology. — ^The additions to the division of ethnology were com- 
prised in 64 accessions, more than one-half of which were donations, 
and while none of these was extensive, several were especially 
valuable and the more important related to coimtries other than 
North America. A noteworthy collection made in the Philippine 
Islands by the late Maj. Gen. Frederick D. Grant, U. S. Army, consist- 
ing of swords, spears, bows and arrows, and other articles, several of 
which are of types new to the Museum, was presented by Mrs. Grant; 
and an interesting series of Filipino weapons and other objects, 
assembled by the late Maj. H. G. Lyon, U. S. Army, waa contributed 
by Mrs. Lyon. A number of articles illustrating the culture of the 
Central Sakai, a prindtive tribe of the Batang Padang District of 
Perak, Federated Malay States, including bark cloth, bamboo arrows, 
personal ornaments, etc., were received as a gift from the Federated 
Malay States Museimis at Kuala Lumpur. A Japanese lady's court 
dress, a Chinese lady's dress, and a Norwegian peasant's bridal dress, 
together with the manikins for their display and the ornaments 
appropriate to be worn with the costxmies, were donated by Miss 
Clementina Fumiss, of New York; and a collection of India shawls 
and scarfs in needlework and print, Chinese and Japanese arms and 


annoFi lacquers, fans, etc., was presented by Miss Isabel C. Freeman 
and Mrs. B. H. Buckingham, of Washington. A sacred fire-drill of 
wood, used in the Idzumo shrine of the great Idzumo Temple of Japan, 
was receiyed from Baron Senge of the Temple through Mr. N. Tsuda, 
directorial assistant of the Imperial Museimx of Tokyo. A series of 
specimens from the Guayaki Indians of Paraguay was contributed 
by Mr. Frederick C. Mayntzhusen, of Yaguarazapa, Paraguay; and a 
number of interesting weapons from East Africa were received from 
Dr. W. L. Abbott, through Miss Gertrude Abbott, of Philadelphia. 
For four Aleutian baskets of a type which is becoming rare the diytsion 
was indebted to Mrs. L. C. Fletcher, of Washington. 

The most important collection purchased was one representing the 
industries, now rapidly disappearing, of the CShippewa Indians of 
Minnesota, which had been assembled by Miss Frances Densmore. 
It comprises examples of looms and textile materials for making 
belts and bags, of tools and materials for working in bark and rushes, 
with specimens of the finished work, and of tools and tanned skins 
used in leather work, besides rattles and other ceremonial para- 
phernalia, an old birch-bark record, and a series of articles illustrating 
the maple sugar industry. Among other purchases were costumes, 
basketry, pottery, agricultural implements, and games of the Mohave 
Indians of Arizona; two women's buckskin dresses, profusely orna- 
mented, together with a nimiber of tools and other articles from the 
tribes of northern California; and nimierous objects, including rare 
examples of sacred bundles, obtained through the help of members of 
the Bureau of American Ethnology. Especially valuable was a large 
series of objects, consisting of costumes, pouches, necklaces and other 
personal ornaments, clubs, flutes, and baskets, collected by Mr. John 
Ogilvie among the Indians in the interior of Dutch Guiana, South 
America, where white men have rarely penetrated, and showing 
no trace of extraneous influence. 

The more noteworthy loans for exhibition comprised basketry, 
beadwork, etc., principally of the North American Indians, from 
Mrs. L. C. Fletcher; old scrapes of beautiful weave, woven bags, and 
Mexican ecclesiastical objects, crosses, reliquaries, amulets, paintings, 
etc., from Maj. Harry S. Bryan, of Mexico City; ancient oriental 
weapons, including sabers, sdmiters, swords, yataghans, daggers, 
pistols, and guns, from Mr. George Kennan; and an interesting addi- 
tion to the collection of Mrs. Julian James, consisting of numerous 
oriental and other weapons and fabrics, fans, brocades, satins, bas- 
ketry, ornaments, photographs, musical instruments, and lacquer and 
tortoise-shell work, which had in part been assembled by Theodorus 
Bailey Myers, of New York, and lieut. Commander T. B. M. Mason, 
U. S. Navy, and Mrs. Mason. Mrs. Julian James also presented a 
nimiber of fine India shawls. 



Excellent progress was made toward completing the installation of 
the exhibition series. Cases were constructed for and await the final 
preparation of lay figures for three new family groups and the re- 
modeling of five old groups. Among special features added were a 
Filipino family group and two costumed figures representing a 
Chinese and a Japanese lady. The Haida house front was removed 
from the older Museimi building, and its totem post installed at the 
southern end of the middle hall, the slabs being temporarily placed 
in storage; and models of the pueblo of Oraibi, the Zuiii Mission church 
and a Kiva at Jemez, N. Mex., were repaired. Constant attention 
was paid to the protection of specimens from insect pests, whose 
ravages have been practically held in check, and the entire collection 
of the division is reported in good condition. 

The curator of the division, Dr. Walter Hough, completed for pub- 
Ecation his report on the culture of the ancient Pueblos of the Upper 
Gila River in Arizona and New Mexico, based on the collection pro- 
cured by him on the Museum-Oates expedition of 1005. He also 
began an investigation preliminary to the preparation of a descriptive 
catalogue of the pueblo collections in the Museum, and continued his 
studies on heating and illumination and other subjects. 

Prehistoric archeology, — A large amoimt of material from the shell 
heaps of Maine, including aU the ordinary implements and utensils of 
the shoreland tribes of New England, in stone, bone, and clay, collected 
in 1896 by Frank Hamilton Cushing for the Bureau of American 
Ethnology, was transferred to the Museum during last year. Two 
important collections were received on permanent deposit from the 
Carnegie Institution of Washington. The first, made by Mr. J. D. 
McGuire, comprises, among other relics, broken and split bones of 
animals and birds, stone and bone implements, worked antlers, and 
fragments of pottery, from a cave at Cavetown, Md.; breccia con- 
taining bones and flint flakes, hammerstones, arrowheads, and frag-« 
ments of pottery from Hartman's Cave, Stroudsburg, Pa. ; and ham- 
merstones, chipped blades, arrowpoints, fragments of pottery, and 
human bones from a moimd near DownsviUe, Va. The other, ob- 
tained by Mr. Gerard Fowke, consists of material from an aboriginal 
quarry site in Carter County, Ky. 

Among the gifts received were a series of typical Carib stone axes 
and celts from Guadeloupe Island, West Indies, presented by Mr. 
Frederick T. F. Dumont, American consul at Madrid, Spain; a small 
earthenware vessel with incised decoration from a burial mound in 
FrankUn Parish, La., two large and exceptionally handsome earthen- 
ware vessels from the Bed River re^on of Arkansas, and a large pot- 
tery vessel of red ware with incised decoration from a burial site in 
Lafayette County, Ark., donated by Mr. Clarence B. Moore, of Phila- 
delphia; several stone axes and a tufa ring from a compound near 


Phoenix, Ariz., contributed by Dr. J. Walter Fewkes, of the Bureau of 
American Ethnology; and an ancient pueblo black-and-white-ware 
vase of large size from near Holbrook, Ariz., presented by Dr. Walter 
Hough. A number of stone and wooden implements from an ancient 
copper mine on an island off the coast of Chile were obtained in ex- 
change; and a collection of Mexican antiquities, including several 
statuettes of stone, a palmate sculptured stone, and a lai^e orna- 
mental vase of earthenware, was acquired by purchase. Many pre- 
historic objects, mainly from the Valley of Mexico, were lent by Maj. 
Hany S. Bryan. 

The work of the year was in continuation of the classification, 
arrangement and labeling of the collections of the division, which had 
been thoroughly overhauled following their transfer from the Smithso- 
nian building, the improvement of the tentative exhibits already in 
place, and the addition of new installations as material was made 
ready and cases were supplied. While much still remains to be done 
in the exhibition haUs, the display collections were in very satisfactory 
condition at the close of the year. 

The head curator of the department, Mr. William H. Holmes, 
continued the preparation of the comprehensive handbook of Amer- 
ican archeology, which has claimed his attention for several years 
past. Although based primarily on the resources of this division, 
the collections of various other museums are also being utilized. 

Historic archeology. — ^The scope of this division has recently been 
enlarged to include the prehistoric as well as historic archeology of 
the Old World. The most noteworthy accession was a collection 
of Egyptian antiquities, ranging in date from predynastic times to 
the twenty-sixth dynasty and including, among other objects, a 
series of interesting potteries, a fine slate palette and other articles 
of stone, presented by the Egypt Exploration Fund through Mr. S. 
W. Woodward, of Washington, a contributor to the Fimd. A large 
nmnber of Greco-Roman and Egyptian antiquities, including a rare 
glass vase, probably of Roman origin, some well-preserved bronze 
vessels, Egyptian necklaces, and bronze and stone figurines of divini- 
ties and their symbols, was received as a loan from Dr. Thomas 
Nelson Page. A rare and peculiarly carved vase of agalmatolite 
from Mongolia was contributed by Dr. Aled Hrdlidka, of the Museum 
staff, and 19 worked stone flakes from Palestine were donated by 
Mr. Herbert E. Clark, of the Jaffa Gate, Jerusalem. Among other 
acquisitions were a collection of neolithic stone implements from 
Obourg, Belgium, and several stone implements from Deir el-Bahari, 
Egypt, received from Dr. W. Rehlen, of Nflmberg, Germany; sev- 
eral casts of prehistoric stone implements from Croatia found asso- 
ciated with the skeleton of the ''Exapina man," received from Dr. 
Gorjanovid-Kramberger, of the National Museum, Zagreb, Croatia, 


Austria; and a number of stone implements from South Africa, 
presented by Mr. Albert Talken, thjrougli Mr. W. A. Haygood, 
American consul at Cape ProyincOy South Africa. Thirty-one speci- 
mens, including casts of stone implements, animal bones, etc., from 
the caverns of Taubach, Germany, were obtained in exchange from 
the Stadtisches Museum of Weimar, Germany. 

The study and installation of the collections of stone implements 
and associated relics of other classes chiefly engaged the attention of 
Dr. I. M. Casanowicz, assistant curator of the division. An inventory 
of this extensive and important section of the division was com- 
menced as a preliminary to the preparation of a card catalogue and 
of labels, and to a definite arrangement as soon as the necessary cases 
become available. In the Egyptian section of the exhibition series 
one special case, one Kensington case, and the Rosetta Stone were 
installed; and to the Biblical section were added a screen holding a 
relief map of Palestine, the Siloam and Temple inscriptions and 26 
geographical and ethnographical photogravures of Palestine. A cast 
of the heroic Head of David by Michelangelo and a model of the 
Parthenon were also placed on exhibition. 

Physical anthropology. — ^During an investigation in Asia, Dr. 
AleS Hrdlidka, curator of the division, secured 205 Mongolian and 14 
Buriat skulls, with other bones, constituting a collection the counter- 
part of which does not exist elsewhere, and which, owing to rapidly 
changing conditions, it would be very difficult to duplicate. The 
more noteworthy gifts received were as follows: Seventeen skulls 
and a skeleton from mounds in Arkansas and Louisiana, from Mr. 
Clarence B. Moore; casts of the Mauer or Heidelberg jaw, from Prof. 
Dr. Otto Schoetensack, of Heidelberg University, Germany; a numr 
ber of casts of skeletal remains of the ancient man from Exapina, 
from Prof. Dr. Gorjanovifr-Kramberger, of Zagreb, Croatia; a large 
number of photographs of Sudanese Negroes, from Dr. C. G. 
Seligmann, of London, England; and the munmiy of a Peruvian 
child showing in situ the band by which its head was being deformed, 
from Dr. Carlos Morales Macedo, of Lima, Peru. Eighteen Hindu 
and Polynesian skulls were received in exchange from the British 
Museum of Natiural History; and casts of 10 skulls, with lower jaws, 
of Siberian natives from Prof. J. Talko-Hryncewicz, of Krakow, 
Galicia. Mention may also be made of an extensive collection 
obtained by the curator on an expedition to Peru, but which did not 
reach Washington in time to be overhauled and accessioned before 
the close of the year. 

The curator was absent from Washington during a considerable 
part of the year, conducting field investigations in several distant 
countries. Work upon the collections was carried on, however, as 
opportimity permitted, and the segregation of material was continued 


having in view the presentation, in the form of exhibits, of the fol- 
lowing subjects: Human evolution and man's antiquity; the con- 
nection of present man anatomically, on a basis of certain important 
characters, with his early ancestors and even earlier forms; the nor- 
mal variation in all parts of the skeleton of present man; aboriginal 
surgery and diseases peculiar to the American aborigines; and human 
and animal brains. 

The principal studies by Dr. HrdU£ka related to early man in the 
Old World and to the origin of the American race. A report on the 
former subject is in preparation, while a preliminary paper on the 
latter appeared during the year in the Smithsonian Miscellaneous 
Collections. Unfinished investigations mentioned in the last report 
were also continued. 

Mechanical technology. — ^A valuable loan collection of military 
weapons and other articles received from Mrs. Julian James, of 
Washington, includes several brass models of field and fortification 
cannon; a number of typical Navy cutlasses, swords, and fencing 
foils; a double-barrel shotgun made by Joseph Lang, of London, 
and used by Lieut. Conmiander T. B. M. Mason, U. S. Navy; a pair 
of dueling pistols marked "F. Rynolds, N. Y."; an exceedingly rare 
C!olt's single-action, .26 caliber revolver made at Paterson, N. J.; a 
set of copper powder measures made for the Ordnance Department 
of the United States Army; and a sextant made by E. & Q. W. Blunt, 
of New York, and formerly belonging to Frederic B. N. Mason, U. S. 
Navy. By transfer from the War Department, the Museum obtained 
an interesting series of weapons and other objects, which had been 
exhibited in a museum of historical arms maintained for some years 
at the Soldiers' Home in Washington. Among the articles were a 
Harpers Ferry musket of 1810; HaU breech-loading rifles of 1837 
and 1838; United States Springfield cavalry and artillery musket- 
oons, caliber .69, of 1851, 1852, 1853 and 1855; Colt's single-action 
.45 caliber Army revolvers; a noncommissioned officer's sword; cav- 
alry and artillery drivers' saddles, and several cavalry sabers. Mr. 
J. W. Daniel, of Washington, deposited a pair of horse pistols, .64 
caliber, made by W. L. Evans, Valley Forge, 1831; and an Army 
revolver, .36 caliber, made in imitation of the Colt revolvers, and 
marked "C. S. A.," the belt buckle belonging with it bearing the 
Virginia State seal. 

The Museum is again indebted to Mr. Claude L. Woolley, of Bal- 
timore, for examples of simdiab, of which two were presented by 
him during last year. One is of bronze, horizontal, adapted to the 
latitude of Aberdeen, Scotiand, 57*^ 10' north, and is marked "My 
time is in Thy Hand"; the other is of aluminum, horizontal, calcu- 
lated for the latitude of Constantinople, Turkey, 40® 55/ north, has 
the hours designated by Arabic characters, and bears the inscription 


in Arabic, "Work while the King gives the light." A 5-cylinder 
revolving aeroplane engine, of 30 horsepower and weighing 97 pounds, 
devised by Mr. Emile Berliner, was donated by the Gyro Motor Com- 
pany, of Washington. 

Ab a temporary loan, the Museum received from the Isthmian 
Canal Conmiission a working model of the Pedro Miguel locks, and 
a papier-mach6 relief map of the Gatun dam, locks and spillway of 
the Panama Canal. They have been exhibited in the foyer in the 
ground story of the new building. 

The floor of the northeast court in the older Museimi building, 
from which the collections of graphic arts had been removed, was 
assigned to this division and is being used for the exhibition of fire- 
arms and other articles. Its acquisition for this purpose has per- 
mitted the withdrawal of certain exhibits belonging to the division 
from the west side of the building which is required for other branches 
of the arts and industries. The classified arrangement and labeling 
of the exhibition collections made good progress. The original appa- 
ratus and models relating to electricity and many of the mechanical 
arts are being segr^ated in the east hall, and the smaller aeronautical 
models and the automobiles in the southeast range, but owing to the 
limited space a clearly distinctive separation between the different 
classes can not now be carried out. An important work consisted in 
the overhauling of the extensive storage of the division, which was 
not, however, completed, and the rejection of some material foimd 
to be of no further value to the Museum. 

Ceramics. — There were two principal additions to the section of 
ceramics. One of these, a loan from Mrs. Julian James, was a collec- 
tion of some size, made by the late Theodorus Bailey Myers, a noted 
connoisseur of New York, and comprising large Delft, polychrome 
and blue plates of great beauty and value, a number of fine examples 
of Hispano-Moresque ware, objects of blue Staffordshire ware, liver- 
pool pitchers with patriotic scenes, Lowestoft, Wedgwood and 
modem porcelain, and some glass ware. Mrs. James also deposited 
four panels of old blue Delft tiles with scenes. The other, for which 
the Museum is indebted to Miss Helen E. CooUdge, of Washington, con- 
sisted of three Lowestoft plates of superb blue and two Chinese por^ 
celain cups generously presented, and of a rare cup and saucer of Spode 
ware received as a loan. Reference may also be made here to the 
large collection of porcelain assembled by the late Rear Admiral F. W. 
Dickins, U. S. Navy, and deposited by Mrs. Dickins, which, because 
of its pictorial significance, has been installed with the historical col- 
lections and is described in connection with them. 

Oraphic arts. — ^Most noteworthy among the donations of the year 
were an exhibit illustrating the Ben Day rapid shading mediums, 
comprising a Ben Day machme, printing screens, ink roller and pad, 


pressing tools, etc., and a set of zinc plates showing the method 
followed in making tjtie colored supplement of a Sunday newspaper, 
contributed by Ben Day, Inc., of New York; and two sets of pro- 
gressive proofs of colored lithographic printing, received from the 
Fuchs and Lang Manufacturing Company, of New York. An inter- 
esting series of engravings, etchings, mezzotints, maps, charts, and 
photographs was lent by Mrs. Julian James. The section of photog- 
raphy received for its exhibition collection an important series of 
astronomical photographs made at the Mount Wilson (Califomia) 
Solar Observatory under the direction of Dr. George E. Hale, and 
presented by the Carnegie Institution of Washington. 

As explained in the last report, the exhibition halls on the main 
floor of the Smithsonian building have been assigned to the division 
of graphic arts, exclusive of the section of photography which is 
retained in the older Museum building. The installation of the 
collections, begun in 1912, was actively continued during last year, 
but, owing to the fact that extensive improvements are about to be 
made to the main and larger hall, the final classLflcatory arrangement 
of the materials has for the most part been deferred, though not to 
the extent of preventing a generally satisfactory presentation of 
the several subjects so far as they have been worked up. In the 
west hall, where the installation has been most perfected, the exhibits 
are practically all technical, comprising the tools, materials, and 
finished work elucidating the processes of reproduction along many 
lines, as in wood and other methods of hand engraving, etching and 
lithography; photo-mechanical lithography, intaglio, and relief; 
collography, electrotyping, shading mediums, etc. The collection 
illustrative of photography, which occupies the gallery of the north- 
west court in the older Museum bidlding, has been so nearly com- 
pleted as to insure the opening of this important exhibition early 
in the current year, although many gaps still exist and some time 
will be required to finish the labeling. 

Musical instruments. — The Museum has a large and diversified 
collection of the musical instruments of both aboriginal and civilized 
peoples, which is at present exhibited under such unfavorable con- 
ditions that its true value can not be appreciated. A better installa- 
tion, however, is soon to be made, which it is hoped will lead to 
further contributions needed to fill in the many existing gaps. The 
collection has for a number of years been under the custodianship of 
Mr. E. H. Hawley, who has not only carefully attended to its preserva- 
» tion, but has made extensive studies regarding the properties, dis- 
tribution, names, etc., of the musical instruments of the world , 
which has enabled him to so classify and label the Museiun material 
as to give it a distinctive value. There were only two accessions 
during the year. One consisted of a piano made by Torp and Unger, 


of New York, between 1838 and 1840, and presented by the Rev. 
Augustus Smith, through Mr. Robert A. Smith, of Washington. 
The other was a combined bass dnmi and cymbal pedal beater, the 
gift of Mr. George William Reiser, of Baltimore. 

History. — While the exceptional record of 1912 failed to be equaled 
last year, the number and value of the accessions in the division of 
history, and especially of permanent ones, was weU above the average. 
It is most gratifying to announce the acquisition in perpetuity by the 
Nation of the flag that flew over Fort McHenry during its successful 
defense against the British fleet on September 13 and 14, 1814, and 
immortalized as ''The Star-Spangled Banner" by the inspired verses 
of Francis Scott Key. This relic of the gallant fight, whidh led to the 
brevetting as lieutenant colonel of the commanding officer, Maj. 
George Armistead, U. S. Army, was preserved by him and descended 
to his grandson, Mr. Eben Appleton, of New York City, who con- 
sented in 1907 to its exhibition by the National Museum. During 
the past year this loan was made a gift to the Museum, for which 
patriotic action the public owes to Mr. Appleton a lasting debt of 
gratitude. The flag derives an additional interest from the fact 
that it is one of the few in existence having 15 stars and 15 stripes. 
Being greatly frayed and torn, it requires the support of a canvas 
backing, but by careful attention its preservation should be insured 
for all time. It has occupied a conspicuous place in the main hall of 
history since it was first received, but is deserving of a more appro- 
priate setting than it has at present, one in which the entire width of 
the bunting can be shown. 

Another important loan that was changed to a gift during the year 
consists of a bronze cannon with its wooden carriage, brought to 
America by Lafayette and used by the aUied forces during the War 
of the American Revolution, at the close of which it was presented by 
Lafayette to Col. John Cropper of the Contiaental Army. The 
Museum has received it from Mrs. John Cropper, of Washington. 
Also dating from the same period is a dress sword and scabbard 
which was presented to Col. Return Jonathan Meigs of the Continental 
Army by act of Congress of July 26, 1777, in recognition of dis- 
tinguished service during an expedition in that year to Long Island; 
and likewise a pair of silver knee buckles worn by Maj. Oen. Richard 
Montgomery, of the Continental Army, at the time of the attack on 
Quebec, December 31, 1775, and presented shortly before his death 
to his friend Col. Meigs. Both of these relics were donated by Mr. 
Retium Jonathan Meigs, of Washington, the fourth in line of this 
name. The Washburn family of New England is represented by an 
interesting collection of memorials, including an antique pew-chair 
owned during the colonial period by Leah Fobes Washburn; a tile 
from the ruins of Evesham Abbey, Englaad, bearing the arms of the

Washburn family; a service sword and scabbard and uniform coat 
used by Maj. Gin. C. C. Washburn, U. S. Volunteers, during the 
Civil War; a small silver goblet, part of a silver service presented to 
him by the members/ of his staff; two china vases belonging to him 
while governor of Wisconsin, 1872-74, and a number of other relics, 
all of which were received as a gift from Mrs. Albert W. Kelsey, of 
Philadelphia, daughter of Gen. Washburn. 

The extensive and valued collection of Grant memorials received 
many important additions. Representing Gen. U. S. Grant are two 
carving sets, esch of seven pi^, witiiBUyer and ivoiy handles, 
one accompanied by two dozen dinner knives similarly mounted, 
presented to the General, respectively, by the people of San Francisco 
in 1871 and the workmen of the Lamson and Goodnow Manufactur- 
ing Company, of Shelbume Falls, Mass., in 1869, which were recorded 
as a gift from Maj. Gen. Frederick Dent Grant, U. S. Army, through 
Mrs. Frederick Dent Grant. From the latter were received, also as 
a gift, the following memorials of her husband: The uniform worn by 
him when a cadet at the West Point Mihtary Academy; a uniform 
coat worn during the period from 1873 to 1880, when aid on the staff 
of Gen. Philip Sheridan; his full-dress uniform worn in 191 1 and 1912 
while in command of the Eastern Division with headquarters on 
Governors Island, N. Y. ; two United States and three headquarters 
flags flown by him in the Philippine Islands from 1899 to 1902, in 
campaigns against Filipino insurgents; a Colt's revolver and several 
native daggers and swords captiured from the insurgents; a pair of 
French dueling swords with scabbards presented to Gen. Grant in 
1899 by the Spanish Secretary of Justice of Porto Rico, Dr. Herminio 
Diaz, by whom they had been owned and used; and a number of 
other articles, including an ivory-handled driving whip and a fur 
overcoat. Mrs. Grant also presented a silver knife, fork and spoon 
which had been used by her husband when a child, and a set of 
Russian enamel spoons given him in 1892 by Senator Leland Stanford. 

A white kid glove of the type worn by those who entertained 
Lafayette in Boston in 1825, and a United States Army chapeau 
given to Brevet Maj. Gen. Edward Davis Townsend, U. S. Army, 
by Lieut. Gen. Winfield Scott, U. S. Army, were received as a giift 
from Mrs. E. M. Chapman, of Washington. A piece of masonry 
from the ancient wall of Servius TuUius in Rome, Italy, presented 
to the United States Government by the National Association for 
the History of Italian Unity, Rome, to replace a memorial stone of 
the same description sent by the National Committee as a tribute to 
President Lincoln, after his assassination in 1866, but lost in transit, 
was transferred to and will be preserved in the Museum. A diploma 
of doctor of medicine, conferred by the University of Edinburgh, 
Scotland, in 1768, upon Gustavus Richard Brown of the colony of 


Maryland, a friend of Washington and one of the physicians who 
attended him in his last illness, was donated by Mrs. Mary J. Roach, 
of Washington, and other descendants of Dr. Brown. A card of 
admission to the Senate gallery at the Capitol during the impeach- 
ment trial of President Johnson in 1868 was contributed by Dr. 
Hugh M. Smith, of Washington. 

The last report recorded the acquisition by the Museum of a 
number of gold and silver medals which had belonged to Matthew 
Fontaine Maury, Commander, U. S. Navy, donated to the United 
States by several of his descendants, in connection with many manu- 
scripts and other articles deposited in the Library of Congress, as a 
memorial in his honor. It is desired to supplement the statement 
there made by a more specific reference to the fact that these valued 
tokens, the gifts of sovereigns and foreign governments, were pre- 
sented to this distinguished Naval officer in recognition of the services 
he rendered to the commerce and navigation of the world through 
his wind and current charts, his physical geography of the sea, and 
his extended researches connected therewith, which constituted a 
contribution of incalculable importance to the welfare of mankind. 
It is also necessary to correct the dates assigned to two of the medals, 
as the Himiboldt medal was presented in 1855 instead of 1865, and 
the Austrian great gold medal of science, in 1858 instead of 1868. 
Two additions were made to this collection during last year. One 
was a bronze medal of the Exhibition of the Works of Industry of 
All Nations, held in London in 1851 ; the other a gold electrotype of 
the gold medal awarded by Oscar I, King of Sweden and Norway, 
the original of which belongs to Miss Ann H. Maury, of Eichmond. 
Both of these were received through Mrs. Mary Maury Werth, the 
replica, in fact, having, by courtesy of Miss Maury, been made for 
and presented by her. 

The only pictures of historical interest permanently acquired 
during the year were the following, presented by Maj. William 
Boerum Wetmore, of Washington: An oil portrait of George Peabody, 
by Lowes Dickinson, 1869; an oil painting by N. H. Trotter, 1897, 
entitled ''Held up," showing an early railroad train stopped by a 
large herd of buffalo which are crossing the track inunediately in 
front of the engine ; an engraving of the Charter Oak, and three water- 
color paintings executed in the early part of the nineteenth century, 
two being of the U. S. Frigate ConstituHon, and one of the U. S. 
Schooner Shark. The Museum was also indebted to Maj. Wetmore 
for a varied collection of relics of the Civil War. The plaster model 
by Frank E. Elwell, from which was cast the bronze statue of Bear 
Admiral Charles H. Davis, U. S. Navy, for the Vicksburg National 
Military Park, was deposited by the War Department; and an oil 


portrait of Henry Clay, by Jean Baptiste Adolphe GiMrt, was lent 
by Mr. Watterson Stealey, of Washington. An interesting coUection 
of modem Chinese copper and brass coins, to the number of 136, 
was received as a gift from Prof. N. Gist Gee, of Soochow University, 
Soochow, China. 

Having transferred to the custody of the National Museum its 
extensive collection illustrating the various phases of the postal 
service, in which most important and valuable is the remarkable 
series of postage stamps, as described in the last report, the Poet 
Ojffice Department has continued to transmit the new issues for all 
countries as they are assembled and distributed through the medium 
of the Postal Union. During last year there were 9 accessions, 
including 21,242 separate stamps, post cards and envelopes, and with 
this cooperation the Museimi must soon attain a foremost position 
in the world as regards the subject of philately. 

Of the loans to this division the most extensive was the remarkable 
collection of nearly 500 pieces of American historical china brought 
together by the late Rear Admiral F. W. Dickins, U. S. Navy, and 
deposited by Mrs. Dickins. Containing many Liverpool pitchers and 
pieces of Staffordshire ware, it is especially noteworthy on account 
of the large nmnber of fine specimens of Presidential china, including 
examples dating from the administration of Washington to that of 
Benjamin Harrison. The series of pieces decorated with views, por- 
traits, and inscriptions relating to important events and representing 
prominent personages in the history of the United States from the 
colonial period to the middle of the nineteenth century is particularly 
large and interesting. From Mrs. Henry Wells, of Washington, were 
received a dress sword and scabbard of the period of the American 
Revolution; a letter written by Thaddeus Kosciusko when colonel 
in the Continental Army, dated May 24, 1779, to Ashbel Wells, 
Assistant Deputy Quartermaster General of the American forces; 
eight other letters of the same period written or received by Ashbel 
Wells, and two additional documents. Four early American chairs, 
two once owned by Maj. Gen. Philip Schuyler of the Continental 
Army and two by Alexander Hamilton, and two mahogany side 
tables which had belonged to the latter were obtained as a loan, 
the chairs from Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton, of New York, grandson 
of Alexander Hamilton, the tables from Mrs. Hamilton. A number 
of additions to the loan collection of the Bradford family of New 
England, deposited the previous year, were made by the Misses Long, 
of Washington, including six silver conserve spoons, a cut-glass vase, 
five pieces of antique jewelry, a purse of silver and ivory, a vinaigrette, 
and three lace veils. 

Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary, U. S. Navy (retired), added to his 
loan collection the following further testimonials awarded him in 


recognition of his achievement in reaching the North Pole, namely 
a special gold medal of honor, set with a single large diamond, from 
the Peary Arctic Club; a gold medal from the Paris Academy of 
Sports; and a gold, silver and bronze trophy from the Canadian 
Camp of New York City. The memorial gold medal, mounted on a 
bronze tablet, issued by the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission in 
memory of the heroines and heroes of the steamship Titanic lost off 
the Banks of Newfoundland, April 15, 1912, was presented by the 

To the loan collection of the National Society of the Daughters of 
the American Revolution was added an antique German wooden 
casket, decorated with a painted design and inscriptions in German 
and Latin, and bearing the date 1660, which had originally been used 
by members of the Keim family as a receptacle for jewelry, laces, and 
toilet articles. 

The division of history requires a relatively greater proportion of 
exhibition space than most other branches of the Museum as its col- 
lections are more generally of a character to interest the public. It 
has, however, many resources which are not intended to be displayed 
but are kept conveniently accessible for reference and study, among 
these being an important series of portraits, already numbering sev- 
eral thousands. To permit of the introduction of certain new sub- 
jects and the enlargement of the exhibits in others, for which mate- 
rial is available, a third hall, the north-west range in the older Museum 
building, was assigned to the division during the year. 

An important work begun was the classification of the extensive 
collection of postage stamps, stamped envelopes, and postal cards, as 
a preliminary to the selection of a series for exhibition, and the system- 
atic arrangement and filing of the others. Good progress was also 
made toward arranging the collection of medals, heretofore in stor- 
age, which includes a fairly representative series of the historical 
medals of the United States, England, and France, besides a number 
of examples from other countries. Some attention was likewise paid 
to the collection of coins which, while comprising a large number of 
pieces, is unfortunately very deficient even as regards the coinage of 
the United States. 

Period costumes. — ^The preparation of an exhibition of historical 
costumes, to which reference was made in the last report, was ac- 
tively continued during the year though no part of the collection was 
made ready for installation, owing mainly to delajrs in securing 
appropriate lay figures. Following numerous experiments, plaster 
was finally selected as best suited for representing such parts of the 
figures as will be exposed, and six manikins of this pattern were 
approaching completion at the close of the year. The collection is 
affiliated with the division of histoiy and is being restricted to coo- 


tumes that have been worn at state and other important functions, 
principally by the ladies of the White House. The subject, which 
is one that has received much attention abroad, was taken up for 
the Museum on the initiative of Mrs. Julian James, who is giving 
largely of her time to the planning and direction of the work, and to 
the gathering of the requisite materials. She is being ably assisted 
by Mrs. R. R. Hoes, and has received material aid from Mrs. Hunt 
Slater, Mrs. Christian D. Hemmick, Miss Katharine Mimmack, Miss 
Clementina Fumiss, Mrs. Henry White, Mrs. E. F. Andrews, Mrs. 
Dickinson Jewett, Miss Amaryllis Gillett, Mrs. C. Albert Hill, and 
Mrs. P. M. Rixey. 

Important permanent contributions to the collection were made 
by Miss Clementina Fumiss, of New York, and Mrs. S. E. Cumminga 
and Miss L. L. Lander, of Washington, Mrs. Cummings' donation 
consisting of 159 articles, including costumes, laces, jewelry, fans, 
purses, and other axscessories worn by ladies and gentlemen prior to 
1825. The loans, which were numerous and valuable, were i^eived 
from Mr. Edward Rutledge Pinckney and Capt. Thomas Pinckney, 
of Charleston, S. C. ; Mrs. William M. Ellis, of Shawsville, Va. ; Mra. 
Mary B. Barber, of Canton, Ohio; the Misses Forsyth, of Kingston, 
N. Y.; Mrs. George W. Fall, of Nashville, Tenn.; Miss May S. Ken- 
nedy, of Charlestown, W. Va. ; Mrs. C. C. Cooley, of Baltimore, Md. ; 
and Mrs. John Southgate Tucker, Mrs. J. Hough Cottman, Mrs. P. 
M. Rixey, and Mrs. Julian James, of Washington. 

Work of ike preparators. — The principal work carried on was in 
continuation of the preparation of exhibits for the public halls, and 
especially the modeling, casting, painting, and installation of lay 
figures for the ethnological and historical costume collections, in con- 
nection with which the services of Mr. H. W. Hendley were mainly 
utilized. Numerous figures, modeled in clay and cast in plaster, 
were also made by Mr. U. S. J. Dunbar, sculptor, partly for the 
Museum, but chiefly for the Panama-California Exposition, and Mr. 
Frank Mi6ka, sculptor, was likewise employed to prepare anthropo- 
logical exhibits for the same exposition. 

Exhibition coUecHona. — With the opening up in April, 1913, of the 
large hall devoted to prehistoric archeology, the entire exhibition 
space allotted to the department of anthropology in the new building 
became accessible to the public. While the installations are gen-< 
erally well classified and displayed, they are to a large extent still 
tentative, and subject to additions and improvement. Much also 
remains to be done to complete the labeling. 

Ezphrations. — Two trips were made during the year by the head 
curator of the department, Mr. William H. Holmes, for the purpose 
of exploring archeological localities and of obtaining data relating 
to collections which had been acquired by the Museum. The first 


was to Georgia and the Carolinas, the second to Illinois. In Georgia 
certain ancient village and stone-working sites were studied and 
interesting material was secured; while in South Carolina the collec- 
tions of the museum at Columbia were examined and a visit was 
made to a large Indian mound on the Congaree Kiyer, 12 miles below 
Columbia, where many relics of stone and earthenware were obtained 
from an ancient burial ground. In western North Carolina a number 
of the more important of the prehistoric mica mines were investi- 
gated. The old workings were found to be very numerous and exten- 
sive; some of the excavations, traces of which still remain, extended 
to a depth of a hundred feet, and the amount of mica extracted and 
carried away by the aborigines may be estimated at many himdreds 
of tons. By digging in the ancient pittings, Mr. Holmes secured speci- 
mens of the mica and of the stone implements employed by the 
natives in their mining work. In southern Illinois an examination was 
made of an ancient flint quarry where the aborigines obtained the 
material for their agricultural implements, examples of which as 
well as of the tools used in the flint-chipping work, together with a 
quantity of the refuse of manufacture, were collected for the 

Under the joint auspices of the Smithsonian Institution and the 
Panama-California Exposition authorities, at San Diego, Cal., Dr. 
AleiS Hrdli6ka, curator of the division of physical anthropology, 
conducted personally three important field investigations, relating 
respectively to geologically ancient man in the Old World, the origin 
of the American race, and the anthropology and prehistoric pathology 
of Peru. The first involved the visiting of practically every institu- 
tion in Europe where authenticated skeletal remains of ancient man 
are preserved. A large majority of these specimens were examined, 
and in several instances, especially on the island of Jersey and at 
Mauer, the localities where they had been found were studied, result- 
ing in a fund of valuable information. A comprehensive account of 
the trip appeared in the annual report of the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion for 1912. The second expedition was to Siberia and Mongolia 
during the summer months of 1912, and was equally successful, 
many important observations, supported by numerous photographs 
and specimens, having been secured. The principal result, as set forth 
in a brief report published in Volume 60 of the Smithsonian Miscel- 
laneous Collections, under the title ''Remains in eastern Asia of the 
race that peopled America," was to the effect that scattered over 
large parts of eastern Asia are remnants of native peoples, which, 
notwithstanding a considerable mixtiu*e with more recent ethnic 
elements, show many physical resemblances to the American Indian, 
indicating at least distant relationships. The Peruvian expedition, 
which continued from January until the end of April, 1913, amounted. 





,^-iact, to an extension of the field work conducted by Dr. Hrdliika 
in 1910. Its main objects were to trace the distribution of the prin- 
cipal native types in pre-Columbian timeS; and to determine, as far 
as was possible from skeletal remains, the prevalent diseases and in- 
juries and their effect, if any, on the constitution of the people. The 
work was carried along the coast for 600 miles, and two trips were 
made into the mountains. Approximately 200 ancient cemeteries 
and burial caves were explored, affording opportunity for examining 
over 4,800 crania and a great quantity of other human bones. Im- 
portant selections from these, including remarkable examples of tre- 
phining and rare pathological conditions, were forwarded to the 
Museum for further study. A somewhat detailed report of this expe- 
dition was submitted, and the preparation of a more extensive illus- 
trated account was approaching conclusion at the end of the year. 
Under the same joint auspices. Dr. K. D. Moore, aid in the division 
of physical anthropology, spent the summer of 1912 on St. Lawrence 
Island, Alaska, observing and collecting among the Eskimo. He 
was successful in obtaining numerous measurements, photographs, 
casts and skeletal remains, as well as other material, the majority 
of which it was necessary to leave on the island, to be brought down 
the following season by one of the steamers of the Revenue Service. 


From, only a few sources were the acquisitions received by this 
department during last year sufficiently diversified to relate to two 
or more divisions. Most noteworthy among the general collections 
were those contributed by Dr. W. L. Abbott, resulting from his own 
explorations in Kashmir, and those of Mr. H. C. Raven, conducted 
at Dr. Abbott's expense, in northeastern Borneo, embracing mammals, 
birds, reptiles, and batrachians. Several other expeditions, however, 
also furnished mixed collections, as described further on, the most 
important having been one to the Altai Mountains in Asia by Dr. 
Theodore Lyman. The divisions of fishes, moUusks, and marine 
invertebrates profited largely, as usual, by the scientific explorations 
of the Bureau of Fisheries, not only as to number and variety of speci- 
mens, but by the receipt of much material, including types, that had 
been studied and described by experts. 

Mammals, — The series of manmials sent from Kashmir by Dr. 
Abbott and from Borneo by Mr. Raven were both of much value, that 
from the latter region containing a specimen of the very rare and 
conspicuous squirrel, Reithrosciurus, and two specimens of the hith- 
erto ''lost" tree shrew, Tupaia miiUeri. Of exceptional importance 
was the collection of mammals, numbering 346 specimens, made by 
Mr. N. HoDister, assistant curator of the division, on the expedition of 


Dr. Theodore Lyman to the Altai Mountains. It represents 33 spe- 
cieS| of which 13 have been described as new by Mr. Hollister. Mr. 
Arthur deC. Sowerby transmitted 81 mammals from China and Mon- 
golia, including a new species; and the Bureau of Fisheries contrib- 
uted a specimen of a bottle-nosed whale taken at Beaufort, N. C, 
which proved to belong to a new species, described by Dr. Frederick 
W. True under the name Mesoplodon mirum. A valuable addition to 
the collection of anthropoid apes consisted of the skulls and skeletons 
of 23 gorillas and 19 chimpanzees, obtained by exchange. The 
Museum was also fortunate in securing the mounted skin and skeleton 
of an exceptionally fine male specimen of the okapi from the Welle 
district of the Congo. This remarkable animal, which is related to 
the giraffe and was discovered only about 12 years ago, is represented 
in but few museums. 

The tanning of lai^e and medium-sized mammal skins by contract 
progressed satisfactorily, and about 275 skins, mostly old specimens 
in danger of deterioration, were made up by the taxidermist detailed 
to the division. The labeling and cataloguing of the Rainey African 
collection were completed, and the same work with reference to the 
Merriam collection of North American mammals was well advanced. 
Over 800 large skulls and skeletons, besides a number of miscellaneous 
bones, were cleaned by the Museum force, and about 2,400 small 
skulls, by contract. All of the small skulls and skeletons are well 
arranged, as are also the large skulls of carnivores and primates. 
Cases furnished during the year made possible a temporary arrange- 
ment of the skeletons of these two orders and of the pinnipeds and 
rodents, but accommodations are still lacking for the skulls and 
skeletons of the ungulates. The alcoholic specimens are suitably 
provided for, and considerable progress has been made toward their 
systematic arrangement, that of the bats and insectivores, composing 
the most important part of the collection, being nearly completed. 

Research work in the division related mainly to Old World mam* 
mals, though the most extensive single Museum publication of the 
year was a list of the North American land mammals represented in 
the Museum, prepared by the curator, Mr. Gerrit S. Miller, jr. A 
much laiger and more important work by Mr. lifiUer was, however, 
issued by the British Museum of Natural History in London, being 
a catalogue of the mammals of western Europe, which signalized the 
conclusion of a task on which the curator had been engaged for a 
number of years, several of which were spent in Europe. Dr. S. F. 
Harmer, the Keeper of Zoology in the British Museum, explains in a 
preface that the possibility of issuing the volume grew up mainly 
from the studies which Mr. Miller had been conducting independently 
on the subject, and adds: ''As Mr. Miller is on the staff of the United 
States National Museum the special and cordial thanks of the Trus- 


tees of the British Museum are due to the authorities of the former 
institution for the facilities granted to him for carrying through the 
preparation of the Catalogue, a work which involved a furlough of 
two years and a half from his usual duties at Washington.'^ It is 
furthermore interesting to learn from the introduction that while the 
British Museum has the largest collection of European land mammals 
extant; numbering about S^OOO specimens, the National Museimi, 
with about 4,000 specimens, follows next, and that without the help 
of the latter collection a monographic study of these animals could 
not have been made. 

Mr. N. Hollister, assistant curator, was chiefly occupied in working 
up the collection of mammals from the Altai Mountains, but he also 
brought nearly to completion an annotated review of the mammals 
of the Philippine Islands. Dr. M. W. Lyon, jr., formerly of the divi- 
sion, finished a monograph of the tree shrews and began the prepa- 
ration of a review of the mammal fauna of the Borussan Islands. 

Besides members of the Biological Survey of the Department of 
Agriculture, the collections were consulted by Prof. O. P. Hay, of 
Washington; Dr. H. H. Donaldson, of the Wistar Institute, Phila- 
delphia, Pa.; Dr. J. S. Foote, of the Creighton Medical College, 
Omaha, Nebr.; and Mr. Childs Frick, of New York. Specimens were 
lent for study to Dr. Leisewitz, of Munich, Bavaria; Mr. K. Andersen, 
of the British Museum ; Mr. W. H. Osgood, of the Field Museum of 
Natural History; Dr. D. G. Elliot, of New York, and others. 

Birds. — ^Most prominent among the additions to this division was 
the magnificent series of over 5,000 bird skins from Abyssinia and 
British East Africa, collected by Dr. E. A. Mearns on the Childs Frick 
expedition, and deposited by Mr. Frick. Containing several generic 
types not previously in the Museum, this contribution splendidly 
supplements the earlier collections from East Africa, including those 
made by the Smithsonian expedition under Col. Theodore Roosevelt 
and by Dr. W. L. Abbott at Kilimanjaro, and places the Museum in 
possession of one of the best representations of the bird fauna of that 
part of the world. Mr. H. C. Raven transmitted 488 specimens from 
Borneo, and the Bureau of Fisheries 61 skins from Celebes and other 
islands of the Dutch East Indies, obtained during a recent cruise of 
the steamer AJhatross. From this bureau were also received 108 
skeletons, 137 eggs, and 2 nests from the Pxdbilof Islands, and Dr. 
L. C. Sanford, of New Haven, Conn., contributed 25 skins chiefly 
from Alaska, including the types of Loxia curvirostra percna and 
MicropdUaa whUneyi sanfordi. Several skins and eggs of rare birds 
from Samoa and Niuafu Island were presented by Mr. Mason Mitchell, 
American consul at Apia, among them being the skin and eggs of 
Megapodius pritt^rdi, which are new to the Museum; and eggs of 
two other rare species, namely, the ocellated turkey, AgriocJuiHs 


ocdlata, and the Siberian spoon-billed sandpiper, EuryriorhyTichus 
pymsf^f were likewise received as gifts, the former from Mr. C. H. 
Jones, of San Felipe, Campeche, Mexico, the latter from Mr. L. L. 
Lane, of Seattle, Wash. 

The rearrangement of the reserve series of skins was continued and 
completed for 21 j^ quarter-unit cases. Some 300 mounted birds from 
the old exhibition collection were made over into skins, and the origi- 
nal labels of several hundred mounted specimens were removed from 
the stands to which they had been glued, and filed away in numerical 
order for reference. The important work of posting the old cata- 
logues showing the distribution of specimens during the earlier years 
of the Museum and the search for type specimens were also contin- 
ued, the latter with some success, a few types being discovered. 
The Frick African collection was catalogued. The skins received 
during the year were assigned to their appropriate places in the 
reserve series, with the exception of the Frick and Abbott collec- 
tions which are being kept intact pending their study. The eggs 
were also catalogued but not systematically arranged. 

Mr. Robert Ridgway, curator of the division, completed part 6 of 
his great work on the Birds of North and Middle America, coveriii^ 
the families Picid» (woodpeckers), CapitonidsB (barbets), Rham- 
phastid» (toucans), Galbulidse (jacamars), Bucconidse (puffbirds), 
Alcedinidas (kingfishers), Todidao (todies), Momotidsa (motmots), 
Caprimulgidsd (goatsuckers), Nyctibiidae (ibijaus), Aluconidas (bam 
owls), Strigid8d (owls), and Cuculidse (cuckoos). The manuscript for 
the Psittacidsa (parrots), to be included in part 7, was also nearly 
finished. It is gratif3ang to make mention in this connection of the 
signal honor recently conferred on Mr. Ridgway, who has been an 
active member of the scientific staff of the Museum since 1874, in 
the awarding to him of the Walker grand honorary prize, given by 
the Boston Society of Natural History once in five years, in acknowl- 
edgment of his investigations in ornithology, and particularly for his 
work on the Birds of North and Middle America. This prize was 
founded by the late William Johnson Walker, a benefactor of the 
Society, and is granted in recognition of important investigations in 
natural histoiy, published and made known in the United States. 

Dr. C. W. Richmond, assistant curator, during such time as could 
be spared from routine work, studied the Frick collection of African 
birds with reference to their generic determination, and also inves- 
tigated and reported on a lai^e number of generic names of birds 
for the International Conmiission of Zoological Nomenclature. Mr. 
J. H. Riley, aid, assisted Mr. Ridgway in the preparation of the 
manuscript of the Birds of North and Middle America, compiling 
references and measuring specimens. Dr. E. A. Meams, U. S. Army 
(retired), associate in zoology, continued his studies of East African 


birdS; chiefly those collected by himself on the Smithsonian and 
Prick expeditions. Mr. A. C. Bent, of Taunton, Mass., spent some 
time at the Museum in examining yarious North American birds, 
more particularly the crossbills. 

Members of the staff of the Biological Survey of the Department 
of Agriculture made constant use of the collection, especially Mr. H. 
C. Oberholser, who also determined for the Museum several accessions 
that had recently been received. A large number of ornithologists 
not connected with the Government likewise visited the division, 
some of them spending several days in the examination of specimens 
and books in connection with their investigations. Among these may 
be mentioned Dr. Thomas Barbour, of the Museum of Comparative 
Zoology; Mr. F. M. Chapman, of the American Museum of Natural 
History; Mr. C. B. Cory and Prof. S. E. Meek, of the Field Museum 
of Natural History; Mr. Witmer Stone, of the Academy of Natural 
Sciences of Philadelphia; Mr. W. E. Clyde Todd, of the Carnegie 
Museum; Mr. Childs Frick, of New York; Mr. C. J. Maynard, of 
West Newton, Mass.; Dr. L. C. Sanford, of New Haven, Conn.; Mr. 
H. H. Bailey, of Newport News, Va.; Mr. Lacy I. Moffett, of Kiang- 
yin, China; and Mr. Charles T. Ramsden, of Guantanamo, Cuba. 
The collection of birds' eggs was consulted by Mr. Edward Arnold, 
of Battle Creek, Mich.; Mr. E. J. Court, of Washington; Mr. A. M. 
Ingersoll, of San Diego, Cal.; and Mr. Geo. H. Stuart, of Philadelphia, 
Pa. Dr. R. W. Shuf eldt, of Washington, examined a number of skel- 
etons. Specimens were lent for study to several museums and other 
institutions, as follows: The Academy of Natural Sciences of Phila- 
delphia, the American Museum of Natural History, the Boston Soci- 
ety of Natural History, the California Academy of Sciences, the Car- 
negie Museum, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Museum 
of Comparative Zoology, the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology of the 
University of California, and the British Museum of Natural History. 

Reptiles and hatrachians. — ^Besides the reptiles contained in the col- 
lection received from Mr. Raven, a considerable niunber of specimens 
from Borneo were presented by Mr. D. D. Streeter, who, as a tempo- 
rary collaborator of the Museimi, visited that island during the year. 
Mr. Arthur deC. Sowerby transmitted material from China; Dr. J. C. 
Thompson, U. S. Navy, from California; and Dr. J. N. Rose, from 
the West Indies. Several specimens of the recently described Neoseps 
reynoldsi from Florida were obtained by Mr. N. R. Wood, of the Mu- 
seum staff; and the tjrpe specimens of two new salamanders, de- 
scribed by Mr. C. S. Brimley, of Raleigh, N. C, as PUthodon metcalfi 
and Spderpes ruher sdiencki, were received from the latter as a gift. 

The collections of the division received the care and attention nec- 
essary to their preservation, and considerable progress was made in 
the transfer of specimens to glass-stoppered jars which are better 


adapted to their keeping than the older pattern. The head curator 
of the department; Dr. Leonhard Stejneger, who also retains charge 
of this division, continued, as time permitted, his researches on Phil- 
ippine herpetology, and completed his report on the reptiles and 
batrachians collected by the Yale Peruvian expedition of 1911* The 
division was visited for the examination of material by Dr. Thomas 
Barbour and Dr. J. S. Foote; and specimens were lent for study to 
Dr. Alex. 6. Ruthven, head curator of the Museum of the University 
of Michigan; Dr. J. C. Thompson, U. S. Navy, attached to the 
steamer AJhatross; Dr. Ciharles A. Kofoid, of the University of Cali- 
fornia; and Dr. Barbour. 

Fishes. — ^While the number of specimens received by this division 
was much below the average, the number of types acquired was 
exceptionally large, not less than 110, besides numerous paratypes, 
having been contained in a single collection from the Bureau of Fish- 
eries, which also deposited the type and paratype of Hadropterus 
seUariSf and the type and 11 other specimens of Pseudopleuronectes 
digndbilis. Leland Stanford Junior University presented the type 
specimen of Aiherinaps oregonia and paratypes of six new species of 
Japanese fishes; while Dr. David Starr Jordan donated the type of 
Onaihypops ianis from Japan, and was instrumental in obtaining the 
type of AnguiMa manaheif also from Japan, as a gift to the Musemn 
from Prof. Yoshiro Manabe. The type of Ponti/n/ua microlepis and 
three specimens of the rare Plectrypops retrospinisj new to the collec- 
tion, were contributed by Dr. Tarleton H. Bean, of the Conservation 
Commission of New York. A number of desirable specimens from 
Cape Lookout, N. C, were received from Mr. Eussell J. Coles, of 
Danville, Va., and others were acquired through exchange from the 
Field Museum of Natural History, and the Australian Museum at 

The very extensive collections of the division are reported to be 
in good condition, but their increase in recent years has more than 
taxed the energies of the few persons attached to the division, and a 
general revision is now called for and should soon be imdertaken. 
Such a work would be expected to result in a considerable reduction 
in the bulk of material, and to release a large number of specimens 
to be used for exchanges, and for distribution to schools and colleges. 

Though mainly occupied with routine work, the assistant curator of 
the division, Mr. Barton A. Bean, continued his investigation of the 
fishes of the District of Columbia and of Florida, and the aid, Mr. A. C. 
Weed, his study of the pike family (Esoddss) . Dr. Hugh M. Smith, U. S. 
Commissioner of Fisheries, and ]&&. Lewis Radcliff e, of the Bureau of 
Fisheries, made constant use of the collections in connection with their 
researches on the fishes of the Philippine Islands, as did also Mr. S. F. 
Hildebrand, of the same bureau, and Dr. S. E. Meek, of the Field 


Museum of Natural History, in conjunction with their investigation 
of the fishes of Panama. Prof. T. D. A. Cockerell, of the University 
of Colorado, was present during a short time, making a study of the 
scales of fishes, and specimens were lent to the American Museum of 
Natural History and Leland Stanford Jimior University. 

Insects. — ^Most noteworthy among the accessions to this division 
was a collection of about 15,000 forest insects, accompanied by 
examples of their work and by copious notes, which was deposited by 
the West Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station in order that it 
might be accessible for the study of certain economic problems by the 
Government. Some 3,600 insects, mostly from Great Britain and 
North America, were presented by Mr. J. R. Malloch, of Washington, 
and over 2,500 specimens were transferred by the U, S. Bureau of 
Entomology. Eighty named bees, new to the collection and includ- 
ing paratypes of 12 species, were donated by the Department of 
Entomology of the University of Nebraska ; and 218 bees of the family 
MeliponidsB, also named and including 90 cotypes, were purchased 
from Dr. H. Friese, of Schwerin, Germany. As a nucleus for the 
series of insects in the f aunal exhibit of the District of Columbia a 
collection of local beetles, numbering about 10,000 specimens, 
remarkable for its completeness and excellence of preparation, was 
acquired by purchase from Mrs. C. E. Burden, of Falls Church, Va. 

While the collections of the division have been kept in good con- 
dition as regards preservation, it has not been possible to make the 
progress desired in transferring the specimens from the old style of 
drawers to those of the lately adopted standard pattern, specially 
designed for their better protection from pests and dust, owing to 
the lack of means for employing a sufficient number of skilled prepara- 
tors to properly expedite the work. The transferring during the year 
was mainly restricted to the orders Odonata, Coleoptera, and Hymen- 

The curator of the division. Dr. L. O. Howard, collaborating with 
two of his assistants. Dr. Harrison G. Dyar and Mr. Frederick Knab, 
completed for the Carnegie Institution of Washington the monumental 
work on the mosquitoes of North and Central America and the West 
Indies, on which they have been engaged for some time. The asso- 
ciate curator, Mr. J. C. Crawford, continued his studies of the Hymen- 
optera, and described a large number of new genera and species. 
Mr. J. R. Malloch finished the preparation of an accoimt of the dip- 
terous family PhoridsB, and Mr. A. A. Girault, a monograph of the 
SigniphorinsB, a subfamily of Hymenoptera. Many smaller detached 
studies by the custodians of the various branches of the collections 
are indicated by their titles in the bibliography at the end of this 
report. Among the students who visited tibe division for the purpose 
of examining material in furtherance of their researches were Mr. M. D. 


Leonard, of Cornell University; Dr. Frank E. Lutz, of the American 
Museum of Natural History; Dr. W. T. M. Forbes, of Worcester, 
Mass. ; Mr. J. R. de la Torre Bueno, of White Plains, N. Y. ; Mr. G. P. 
Engelhardt, of the Children's Museum, Brooklyn; and Mr. H. G. 
Barber, of Roselle Park, N. J. Specimens were lent to specialists as 
follows : Hemiptera and Coleoptera to Mr. Fred Muir, of the Hawaiian 
Sugar Planters' Experiment Station, Honolulu, H. I. ; Coleoptera to 
Mr. George C. Champion, of London, England, and Mr. Robert D, 
Glasgow, of Urbana, 111.; Hemiptera to Mr. J. R. de la Torre Bueno; 
Hymenoptera to Mr. P. H. Timberlake, of the Bureau of Entomology, 
and Mr. H. L. Viereck, of Philadelphia ; Diptera to Dr. O. BiSber, of the 
Naturhistorisches Musexun, Hamburg, Germany, Mr. C. W. Johnson, 
of the Boston Society of Natural EQstory, Dr. E. P. Felt, of Albany, 
N. Y., Mr. H. E. Smith, of Wellington, Kans., and Prof. J. M. Aldrich, 
of the University of Idaho; Odonata to Dr. Philip P. Calvert, of the 
University of Pennsylvania, and Euplexoptera to Dr. Malcolm Burr, 
of Dover, England. 

MoUuska, — ^The cotypes of 12 species of Australian mollusks de- 
scribed by him were presented by Dr. J. C. Verco, of Adelaide, South 
Australia, and the type specimens of several new species of marine 
shells as weU as other specimens were received as a gift from the late 
C. W. Gripp, of San Diego, Cal., and from his estate after his death. 
Other noteworthy contributions consisted of recent and fossil shells 
from Venezuela, received from Dr. Ralph Arnold, of Los Angeles, 
Cal.; land shells from the Bahama Islands and the Dutch East 
Indies, and marine shells from Panama, received from Mr. John B. 
Henderson, of Washington; land, Aresh-water and marine shells from 
Mexico and Texas, received from Mr. Charles R. Orcutt, of San 
Diego, Cal.; and land and fresh-water shells from Lake Winnipeg 
and vicinity, received from Mrs. W. W. Hippsley, of Manitoba. 
Many fine examples of Cypraea from Honolulu were obtained from 
Mr. I. B. Hardy, of Santa Barbara, Cal., in exchange. 

The reserve collections are reported as accessible and in good 
order. A beginning has been made toward revising the arrange- 
ment of the west American coast fauna, and for several of the larger 
genera this work has been finished. The extensive additions made 
to the marine collection from South Africa by Lieut. Col. W. H. 
Turton have been mainly worked up and will result in an exception- 
ally fine representation from that region. Over 11,600 lots of speci- 
mens were registered. For the exhibition collections the synoptical 
and Acadian faunal series were completed and have been installed, 
that for the District of Columbia has been made ready, and the 
series illustrating the Virginian and Floridian regions are well imder 


The curator of the division, Dr. William H. Dall, commenced work 
on a revision of the marine moUnsks of the North Pacific coast, 
beginning with the Nuculacea and Buccinidse, while the assistant 
curator, Dr. Paid Bartsch, continued his studies of the moUusks of 
South Africa and the Philippine Islands, in which good progress was 
made. Mr. John B. Henderson spent much time at the division 
pursuing his investigations of the Antillean mollusk fauna, and the 
collections were consulted by the Hon. T. H. Aldrich, of Birmingham, 
Ala.; Miss Julia Gardner, of Johns Hopkins University; and Mr. 
L. S. Frierson, of Frierson, La. 

Marijie invertebrates. — The principal accessions received by this 
division came, as usual, from the Bureau of Fisheries, and consisted 
chiefly of material that had been worked up and reported upon by spe- 
cialists. Of schizopod crustaceans collected on the Albatross cruises of 
1899-1900 and 1904-1905 in the Pacific Ocean under the direction of 
Alexander Agassiz, and described by Dr. H. J. Hansen in the Memoirs 
of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, there were about 2,500 
specimens, representing 63 species, of which 8 were new to science 
and 2 had been made the types of new genera. Of echinoids or sea 
urchins from several Pacific explorations of the AHatrosSy described 
by Dr. Hubert Lyman Clark in the same Memoirs, there were some 
1,300 specimens, representing 62 species of which 14 were new. Of 
echinoderms other than crinoids obtained during a cruise of the 
steamer Albatross to the west coast of Mexico in 1911 xmder the 
direction of Dr. C. H. Townsend, and also described by Dr. H. L. 
Clark in a report not yet published, there were 986 specimens, repre- 
senting 104 species, of which 7- were new. Of simple ascidians 
from the collections made by the Fish Commission on the Atlantic 
coast of the United States between 1871 and 1887, described by Dr. 
W. G. Van Name in the Proceedings of the Boston Society of Natural 
History, there were about 260 specimens, representing 34 species, of 
which 8 were new. About 900 samples of plankton and 348 micro- 
scopic slides of foraminifera were also received from the Bureau of 
Fisheries. Mr. Harry K. Harring, of Washington, presented 139 
species of rotifera, of which 5 were new, mounted on microscopic 
slides, this important contribution more than doubliog the repre- 
sentation of this order of minute worms in the Museimi collection. 
From the Mus6um d'Histoire Naturelle at Paris, France, 9 species 
of shrimps of the family Atyid» new to the Museimi and including 
cotypes of 3 new species described by Prof, E. L. Bouvier, were 
obtained by exchange. 

The work of improving the condition of the reserve coUectiona of 
the division and making them more accessible for reference was satis- 
factorily continued, the alcoholic specimens of echinoids, ast^eroids, 
holothurians, alcyonarians and actinians beijiig overhauled, the nomen- 


clatiu^e revised, freeh labels attached to the outside of the jars and a 
systematic arrangement effected. At the same time the card cata- 
logue of these groups was brought down to date. The cataloguing 
of current accessions was promptly attended to, and that of severid 
large collections which had fallen in arrears was made up. A niunber 
of sets of dupKcate specimens was prepared for distribution to schools 
and colleges, and much time was spent in selecting material for the 
exhibition series. 

Miss Mary J. Rathbun, assistant curator, finished the preparation 
of a report on the stalk-eyed crustaceans of the Dutch West Indies, 
based on a collection made by Dr. J. Boeke in 1905, which is to be 
published by the Dutch Government in a series dealing with the 
resources of those islands. She also identified most of the Japanese 
crabs sent for that purpose by the University of Tokyo, and con- 
cluded the working up of the large collection of Philippine crabs of 
the families Ocypodidaa and Grapsidsd, in the same connection study- 
ing and determining all of the specimens belonging to the same fami- 
lies contained in the general Musexun collection. A report on the 
Philippine specimens is nearly ready for publication. Mr. Austin H. 
Clark, assistant curator, conducted investigations upon a niunber of 
collections of recent crinoids, mostly received from abroad, some of 
which were finished, while others are still in progress, and he also 
completed revisions of a number of f amihes and genera of crinoids. 
In cooperation with Mr. Frank Springer, he prepared a treatise on 
crinoids for a new edition of ZitteVs Paleontology, and a part of the 
section on the Holothuroidea for the same pubhcation was furnished 
by him. Dr. Harriet Richardson, collaborator, continued her studies 
on isopods and identified a ntmiber of specimens from various sources, 
including small collections obtained by the Biu^au of Fisheries 
steamer Albatross on the west coast of Mexico in 1911, and by the 
French Antarctic Expedition, the latter collection belonging to the 
Museiun of Natural History in Paris. 

The resources of this division are so great and so diversified that 
it would be quite impossible to depend upon its small staff for all of 
the research work necessary for the entire classification of the col- 
lections placed in its custody. For this reason it has long been the 
policy to seek the help of zoologists specializing in the various groups 
of marine and other aquatic invertebrates wherever they may be 
located, and it has also been the good fortime of the Museiun to 
receive such assistance freely and almost wholly without other 
obligation than a right to share in the division of the duplicate 
specimens yielded by each collection as it is studied. A full state- 
ment of this cooperative work would involve the names of most of 
the prominent experts of the world in the subjects covered by the 

32377''— NAT XX78 1913-«-« 


division. During last year these volunteer collaborators represented 
11 different States of this coimtry, besides Great Britain, France, 
Germany, and Denmark. Reports for publication were received 
from several of these, as follows: Dr. R. Koehler, of Lyon, France, 
on a large collection of ophiiu*ans chiefly from the West Indies; 
Dr. H. B. Bigelow, of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, on the 
MedussB and Siphonophorss collected by the steamer Alhatrosa in the 
northwestern Pacific Ocean in 1906; Dr. Walter Faxon, of the same 
Museum, on the crayfishes received by the Museum during the past 
15 years or since his last report upon the subject; Dr. William E. 
Ritter, of the Scripps Institution for Biological Research, at La 
Jolla, Cal., on the simple ascidians from the northeastern Pacific 
Ocean; Dr. Joseph A. Cushman, of the Boston Society of Natural 
History, the third part, covering the family LagenidsB, of his mono- 
graph of the foraminifera of the north Pacific Ocean; Dr. C. Dwight 
Marsh, of the Department of Agriculture, on the fresh-water copepods 
of Panama, based on material mainly collected by himself; and Dr. 
A. S. Pearse, of the University of Wisconsin, on a collection of 
amphipods from the Pribilof Islands, Alaska. 

The following important investigations, previously begun, were in 
progress, namely, on the starfishes of the north Pacific Ocean, by 
Dr. Walter K. Fisher, of Leland Stanford Jimior University; on 
parasitic copepods, by Dr. Charles B. Wilson, of the State Norm&l 
School at Westfield, Mass.; on the sessile Cirripedia, by Dr. H. A. 
Pilsbry, of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia; on the 
family Crangonid» of shrimps, by Dr. H. Coutidre, of the ficole 
Sup6rieure de Pharmacie, Paris, France; on the order Euphausiacea 
of crustaceans, by Dr. H. J. Hansen, of the Zoological Museum, 
Copenhagen, Denmark; on the order Mysidacea of crustaceans, by 
Dr. W. M. Tattersall, of the Manchester Museum, Manchester, Eng- 
land; on the bryozoans of the Atlantic coast of North America, by 
Dr. R. C. Osbum, of Barnard College, New York City; and on the 
rotifers of the District of Columbia, by Mr. Harry K. Harring, of the 
Bureau of Standards. Other extended researches were taken up 
during the year by Prof. Frank Smith, of the University of Illinois, 
on the oligochete annelids; by Mr. R. Southern, of Dublin, Ireland, 
on the family CirratulidsB of annelids; by Dr. J. W. Spengel, of 
Giessen, Grermany, on the genus SipunctdtLs of worms; and by Prof. 
Maynard M. Metcalf, of Oberlin College, on the collection of Salpa 
and Pyrosoma. Dr. H. B. Bigelow began the examination of the 
many samples of plankton collected in the Gulf of Maine during the 
summer of 1912 by the Bureau of Fisheries schooner Orampus. 

Acknowledgments are also due to the following persons for the 
identification of specimens sent to them from time to time belonging 
in the groups named respectively after each, namely, Dr. H. V. 


Wilson, of the Uniyersity of North Carolina, marine sponges; Dr. N. 
Annandale, of the Indian Museum at Calcutta, fresh-water sponges; 
Dr. Alice Robertson, of Wellesley College, Pacific coast bryozoans; 
Prof. C. C. Nutting, of the University of Iowa, hydroids and alcyonar 
rians; Prof. H. B. Torrey, of Reed College, Portland, Oreg., actin- 
ians; Dr. H. L. dark, of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, 
echinoderms; Prof. J. Percy Moore, of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania, annelids and leeches; Dr. E. L. Michael, of San Diego, Cal., 
chsBtognath annelids; Dr. W. R. Coe, of Yale University, nemer- 
teans; Miss A. L. Weckel, of Oak Park, lU., fresh-water amphipods; 
and Dr. A. G. Huntsman, of the University of Toronto, compound 
ascidians. The loans made to assist in investigations other than for 
the Museum comprised specimens of bryozoans, sent to Mr. H. T. 
White, of Sudbiuy, Canada; Philippine sea urchins of the family 
Cidaridffi, sent to Dr. Th. Mortensen, of the Zoological Museum, 
Copenhagen, Denmark; shrimps of the family AtyidsB, sent to Prof. 
E. L. Bouvier, of the Mus6um d'Bistoire Natwelle, Paris, France; 
crayfishes, sent to Prof. H. Oarman, of the State University of Ken- 
tucky; and specimens of the family Pontoniidao of crustaceans, 
sent to Dr. L. A. Borradaile, of Selwyn College, Cambridge, England. 

PlarUs. — ^The total number of specimens acquired by the division 
of plants was approximately 140,000, of which about 80,000 were 
comprised in the collection of grasses, forming part of the National 
Herbarium, which had long been cared for and received its main 
growth in ihe Department of Agriculture, and which during the year 
was transferred to the custody of the Museum. Other grasses to the 
number of about 12,800 were obtained by purchase. They com- 
posed the private collection of Prof. A. S. Hitchcock, containing, 
besides specimens gathered by Prof. Hitchcock and Mrs. Agnes 
Chase, a large amount of material formerly belonging to Prof. F. L. 
Scribner, and the types of over 200 species first described by him. 
Through these additions the grass collection now brought together 
in the division of plants becomes the largest and most comprehensive 
one in this country. 

Another noteworthy accession was the herbarium of Prof. E. O 
Wooton, consisting of about 10,000 specimens mostly from New 
Mexico, to which a particular value attaches because of the fact that 
much of the material, obtained in many and often remote parts of 
the State, was not gathered in duplicate, on which account the col- 
lection furnishes the only means of substantiating the records of a 
large number of species. A set of 621 specimens, of which about 
one-third are cotjrpes, from the Schomburgk collection of British 
Guiana plants, received in exchange from the British Museum of 
Natural History, forms an especially desirable acquisition, in view 
of the active botanical investigations recently conducted in Panama, 


as the National Herbarium is yery deficient in material from South 
America. Among other important additions were about 7,000 plants 
from the West Indies, collected by Dr. J. N. Rose and assistants; 
and nearly 3,000 specimens, chiefly from the same region, obtained 
in exchange from the New York Botanical Garden. 

An exceptionally notable contribution was the well-known col- 
lection of diatoms assembled by the late Prof. C. Henry Kain, of 
Philadelphia, Pa., said to be the largest and most diversified in this 
country and one of the finest in the world, which was received as a 
gift from Mrs. Kain. 

Reference should also be made to the generous gift by Miss Eleanor 
Lewis, of Yellow Springs, Ohio, of over 500 flower studies in water 
color, composing all that had been kept together of the large and 
well-known series painted by her aunt, the late Miss Adelia Gates 
during extensive travels in this country, Europe, Palestine, and the 
northern part of Africa. Additions to the collection have been 
promised by several friends of Miss Gates, among whom a considerar 
ble number of the paintings were distributed. 

The number of mounted plants added to the herbarium was approxi- 
mately 111,500, of which the greater part, consisting of the grasses 
in the two large collections, were received in that condition. The 
ntmiber of specimens moimted in regular course was about 18,000, 
including some material in arrears, leaving at the end of the year 
less than 5,000 specimens to be so prepared. Owing to the unusual 
extent of the accessions and to a considerable accumulation of mate- 
rial, the work of distributing specimens to their appropriate places in 
the herbarium involved more than the customary amoimt of labor. 
The segregating of types and of collections representing type material 
was continued with good progress, and a large number of duplicates 
were separated and prepared for distribution. 

Mr. Frederick V. Coville, curator of the division, continued his 
studies on the Vacciniaceae. Mr. W. R. Maxon, assistant curator, 
prepared two papers on tropical American ferns, identified the Panama 
specimens of several genera of the same group, and gave some time 
to the preparation of copy for the fern portion of the North American 
Flora. Mr. P. C. Standley, assistant curator, determined the species 
of certain families of plants in collections from Panama and, mainly 
in this connection, monographed several small genera of tropical 
American forms. In collaboration with Prof. E. O. Wooton, he also 
prepared a paper describing over 200 new species from New Mexico, 
consisting of excerpts from the manuscript of the flora of New Mexico 
mentioned in the last report. This manuscript was also imder revi- 
sion by Mr. Standley to adapt it for publication in the Contributions 
from the National Herbarium. Mr. £. S. Steele, in addition to his 
editorial work, pursued his study of the genus LcuAniaria. 


Dr. J. N. Rose, formerly associate curator of the division, but now 
on furlough and serving as a research associate of the Carnegie Insti- 
tution of Washington, continued, at the Museum, his investigation 
of the family Cactaceae, and in conjimction with Mr. Standley pub- 
lished a revision of the North American species of Meibomia,' section 
Nephromeria. Dr. E. L. Greene, associate in botany, reported prog- 
ress in the preparation of part 2 of '^Botanical Landmarks," and 
published numerous short papers descriptive of new species mostly 
from the western United States. Capt. John Donnell Smith, also 
associate in botany, continued his studies of previous years on the 
flora of Central America, and brought together partial results in two 
papers published during the year. 

Among parsons not connected with the Government who made 
use of the resources of the division may be mentioned Dr. N. L. 
Britton, director of the New York Botanical Garden, who is engaged 
jointly with Dr. Rose in the investigation of the Cactaceae; Dr. D.T. 
MacDougal, in charge of the department of botanical research of the 
Carnegie Institution of Washington; Prof. "William Trelease, of the 
University of Illinois, who was studying Phoradendron and the oaks 
of Mexico and Central America; and Dr. P. A. Rydbei^, of the New 
York Botanical Garden, who had in preparation a flora of the Rocky 
Mountain region and an article on the family Rosaceae for the North 
American Flora. 

The number of plants lent to other institutions and to specialists 
was larger than in any year except the previous one, the principal 
sendings having been as follows : To the Royal Botanical Garden and 
Museum, Berlin, Germany, specimens of Acanthaceae, Araceae, Euphor- 
biaceae and Orchidaceae, mainly from Panama, for determination for 
the benefit of the National Museum; and specimens of Zamia and 
Saxifragaceae for use in the preparation of matter for the ^Tflanzen- 
reich." To Prof. L. Radlkofer, of the Royal Botanical Museum, 
Munich, Germany, specimens of Sapindaceae chiefly from Panama, 
and to Dr. Georg Bitter, of Bremen, Germany, specimens of Solaniun, 
for naming in the interest of the National Museum. To the Royal 
Botanic Gardens, Kew, England, specimens of the genus Marah. To 
the University of Pennsylvania, specimens of Oerardia, Dasystoma 
and related genera, for the use of Mr. F. W. Pennell, who is preparing 
an elaborate revision of this group. To the Gray Herbarium of Har- 
vard University, specimens of several groups for study by Dr. B. L. 
Robinson, Prof. M. L. Femald, Mr. Sidney F. Blake, and Mr. F. T. 
Hubbard. To the New York Botanical Garden, specimens of Vac- 
ciniaceae and Rosaceae for use in preparing articles for the North 
American Flora, and specimens of Rocky Mountain plants for study 
by Dr. P. A. Rydbei^. To Prof. C. O. Rosendahl, of the University 


of Minnesota, specimens of the genus MiteUa, and to Mr. Marcus E. 
Jones, of Salt Lake City, Utah, specimens of Astragalus. 

Explorations. — ^The expedition of Mr. Childs Frick, of New York, to 
eastern Africa, of which Dr. E. A. Meams, U. S. Army (retired), an 
associate of the Museum, was a member, and which left London in 
January, 1912, as described in the last report, terminated in Sep- 
tember following. Starting from French Somaliland, the party pro- 
ceeded through Abyssinia to British East Africa by way of Lake 
Stef anie and Lake Rudolf, finally reaching Mombasa. Forming part 
of the extensive collections of natural history obtained was a fine 
series of about 5,000 birds, the subject of Dr. Meams' particular atten- 
tion, which Mr. Frick has generously placed in the Museum. 

The hunting trip made by Dr. Theodore Lyman, of Harvard Uni- 
versity, to the region of the Altai Mountains in Asia, on which he was 
accompanied by Mr. N. HoUister of the Museum staff, met ¥dth very 
gratifying results. The party was absent from May until September, 
1912. Its course was over the Trans-Siberian Railroad to the Obi 
River, and up the latter by boat and later by tarantas and pack train 
to the frontier range between Siberia and Mongolia. CoUectii^ was 
mainly done on the Siberia side and the mammals and birds obtained, 
about 650 in number, have, through the courtesy of Dr. Lyman, been 
divided between the Museum of Comparative Zoology and the 
National Museum. 

Reference was made in the last report to the fund generously pro- 
vided by Dr. W. L. Abbott for the purpose of sending a naturalist to 
Borneo to continue the important natural history exploration of that 
island which he had personally carried on for a number of years, 
greatly to the advancement of the collections of the Museum. At 
the close of the year, Mr. H. C. Raven, who was dispatched on this 
mission, had been absent about 16 months. While no formal report 
has been received from him, it is known that he has followed along 
the lines planned by Dr. Abbott, which were to explore in as much 
detail as possible the coast rivers and islands of the northern half of 
the south and east division of Dutch Borneo, which Dr. Abbott had 
not been able to visit, paying particular attention to the mammals 
besides collecting any ethnological objects that might be of interest. 
The material which Mr. Raven has already transmitted testifies that 
his work is proceeding successfully. Dr. Abbott, who returned to 
Kashmir early in the spring of 1912, interested himself in trapping 
and studying the habits of the smaller mammals of that country, of 
which he presented the Museum with a large number of specimens, 
mostly from Baltistan, accompanied by much interesting information. 
Mr. .Ajlhur deC. Sowerby continued bis collecting work in China and 
forwarded during the year a number of mamimals and reptiles. 


In 1904 Mr. Oerrit S. Miller^ jr., and Dr. Leonhard Stejneger con- 
ducted field work in the western A]ps of Europe, with the object of 
comparing the vertical distribution of life in that region with the life 
zones of North America. Certain of the problems connected with 
this study were left undecided chiefly on account of present-day con- 
ditions believed to be of local significance only. During the spring 
of 1913, under a grant from the Smithsonian Institution, Dr. Stej- 
n^er renewed these observations in the eastern Alps, where the con- 
ditions were supposed to be more favorable. A month, beginning 
April 20, was given to this work, the time being mainly devoted to an 
investigation of the territory between the valley of the River Etsch 
or Adige, as far north and west as Schlanders in Austrian Tirol, and 
the valley of the River Brenta in Italy, especially the Val Sugana and 
the plateau of the Sette Comuni, the Etsch valley in Tirol below 
Trient, including Lake Oarda, and between Bozen and Schlanders. 
Dr. Stejneger was able to trace in some detail the limits of the lower 
and upper Austral life zones, and corroborated the previous observa- 
tions in Switzerland relative to the distribution of the coniferous 
trees. Inclement and rainy weather interfered with the work to 
some extent and frustrated frequent attempts to make extensive 
collections for the Museum. 

The three young naturalists who started into the field the previous 
year as temporary collaborators of the Museum all met with gratifjdng 
results in their collecting work. Mr. D. D. Streeter, of Brooklyn, 
N. Y., who was absent from the middle of April until into December, 
1912, passed from Sarawak into Dutch Borneo by ascending the 
Rejang River and crossing the mountains on the dividing line to the 
Kajan River. He then ascended to the head of this river and 
cr(»sed another range to the headwaters of the Mahakam River, 
which he descended to the Strait of Macassar. He secured a small 
but interesting collection of mammals, reptiles, and batrachians, 
including two rhinoceros skulls. Mr. George Mixter, of Boston, 
Mass., spent the summer of 1912 in the vicinity of Lake Baikal, 
Siberia, the main object of his trip being to obtain specimens of the 
native bear and of the seal peculiar to Lake Baikal. Besides good 
examples of both of these he also collected some small mammals, and 
specimens of sponges and crustaceans from the lake. Mr. Copley 
Amory, jr., of Cambridge, Mass., joined the Coast and Gteodetic Sur- 
vey party, under Mr. Thomas Riggs, jr., which was engaged in 
surveying on the Alaska-Canadian boimdary during the summer of 
1912. Reaching New Rampart House on July 1 1 , with a trapper and 
three dogs, he packed over the moimtains for 60 miles to the base of 
supplies on the Old Crow. After a trip north to Joe Creek, a tributary 
of the Firth, lasting two weeks, he proceeded with Mr. Riggs some 
40 miles to the southwest of Old Crow in the caribou country. 


Finally, in a canvas boat, built for the purpose, he made his way down 
to the mouth of the river, a distance of about 300 miles. Mr. Amory 
obtained about 60 mammal skins, including a series of caribou^ be- 
sides many bones of fossil mammals of much interest^ which are 
referred to elsewhere. 

Air. A. C. Bent, of Taimton, Mass., spent the months of June, July 
and August, 1912, in Newfoxmdland and Labrador for the purpose 
of gathering further material and information for the work on the 
life histories of North American birds which he has volunteered to 
contmue. He visited a wide range of territory, in which he had 
excellent opportimities for making observations, especially on the 
breeding places and habits of the birds of the region. The trip proved 
very successful, important data and a number of interesting photo- 
graphs being secured. Some specimens of birds were also collected. 

Dr. Paul Bartsch, assistant curator of moUusks, was enabled to 
make a second trip to the Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas, 
through the courtesy of Dr. Alfred O. Mayer, director of the Marine 
Biological Laboratory of the Carnegie IJostitution of Washington, and 
as a guest of that institution on board the steamer Anton Dohm. 
He was absent about three weeks, from April 20, 1913, during which 
he visited the several places where living specimens of the two races 
of the genus CerUm of land shells from the Bahama Islands were 
planted the previous year with the object of detennining the effect 
of change of environment. Notes were made on the condition of 
the specimens, and collections of various groups of marine inver- 
tebrates were obtained for the Museum. Dr. T. Wayland Vaughan, 
of the Greological Survey and custodian of madreporarian corals in 
the Museum, also spent a short time at the Carnegie laboratory on the 
Dry Tortugas, studying the growth of stony corals and incidentally 
collecting specimens of coral for the Museum. Mr. John B. Hender- 
son, a regent of the Smithsonian Listitution, conducted further explo- 
rations among the Florida Keys with his yacht Eolis during the spring 
of 1913, and from the collections made he generously contributed an 
excellent series of marine invertebrates accompanied by color notes 
on some of the more striking forms. Dr. J. W. Fewkes, of the Bureau 
of American Ethnology, during archeological explorations in the 
West Ladies, obtained for the Museum a small collection of sponges 
at Grand Cayman Island, a dependency imder Jamaica. 

Through the courtesy of Dr. J. N. Rose and Dr. N. L. Britton, Mr. 
Paul G. Russell, of the division of plants, was permitted to accompany 
a joint expedition of the Carnegie Listitution of Washington and 
the New York Botanical Garden to the West Lidies for the purpose 
of obtaining plants for the National Musetmi. The special object of 
the trip was the investigation of the cactus flora, but about 7,000 
specimens of other groups were also secured, chiefly in the Lesser 


Antilles and Santo Domingo^ besides a number of reptiles and batra- 
chians. Mr. P. C. Standley, assistant curator of plants, collected 
while on leave in Missouri about 1,000 specimens of plants, which he 
presented to the Museum. 

Collecting work in the vicinity of Washington, mainly for fishes, 
though some invertebrates were also obtained, was carried on from 
time to time by members of the staff, without expense to the Museum. 
It was maioly confined to the Potomac River and its tributaries from 
Plxunmer's Island to Mattawoman Creek, to branches of the Patuxent 
River, and to Chesapeake Bay several miles south of Chesapeake 
Beach. Those who participated in these trips were Mr. Barton A. 
Bean, Mr. William Palmer, Mr. A. C. Weed, and Mr. Ernest B. 

EoA^ibitian coUections. — ^The preparators of the department were 
chiefly occupied during the year in moimting specimens for and 
arranging the exhibition collections. The American mammals, the 
marine invertebrates, and certain osteological material, which had 
remained in the older buildings, were, with the exception of several 
whale skeletons, transferred to and mainly reiostalled in the new 
building. The most dij£cult part of this task consisted in dis- 
mantlmg and reconstructing the two large groups of American bison 
and moose. The moose group, which had been too greatly crowded, 
was much improved by the removal of two specimens, but the bison 
group was not changed. The other groups, namely, those of the 
Rocky Moimtain sheep and goats, the reindeer, antelope, and musk ox, 
though not requiring to be rebuilt^ needed extensive repairs, which 
was also true of many of the specimens mounted separately, and 
notably the large Pacific walrus, the sea elephant, the California sea 
lions, the manatee, and the dugong. The work connected with the 
mammals was mostly done by Mr. George Marshall and Mr. C. E. 
Mirguet, and that with the osteological specimens by Mr. J. W. 

The African, oriental, and palearctic mammals were overhauled and 
placed m the new cases provided for them. Owing to delay in 
securing the accessories desired for the zebraroryx group, a temporary 
installation was effected which made it possible to exhibit this beau- 
tiful example of the taxidermist's art at the formal opening of the 
mammal hall on April 22, 1913. For the same occasion the African 
buffalo group was also temporarily arranged, and the fourth lajge 
case, destined for the rhinoceros group, was filled with individual 
specimens collected by the Smithsonian African Expedition. Sub- 
sequently the buffalo group, a very effective piece of work by Mr. 
George B. Turner, chief taxidermist of the Museum, was perma- 
nently installed, and near the end of the year, Mr. J. L. Clark, of New 
York, completed the white rhinoceros group, on which he had been 


engaged for nearly two years. The latter is believed to represent the 
highest development of taxidermy either in this coimtry or abroad, 
not only in the artistic grouping, the well-balanced design, and the 
truthful modeling of the animals themselves, but also in the masterly 
treatment of the accessories. Moreover, by resorting to a new tech- 
nique in mounting the dry skin on the manikin, it is believed that a 
degree of permanency has been secured which was impossible by the 
older methods. 

A beginning was made in transferring the bird groups into new 
all-glass top or mahogany frame cases, and the opportimity thus 
afforded was utilized for repairing and otherwise improving the 
exhibits. By a change in the arrangement of the general cases in 
which the birds are displayed it has been possible to locate these 
groups to better advantage and to increase the effectiveness of the 
hall. Forty-eight birds were motmted and a number remodeled for 
the exhibition series by Mr. N. R. Wood. 

The outer end of the west wing on the second floor was opened to 
the public early in March, this having been rendered feasible by the 
rapid progress made in repairing and remoimting the several hun- 
dred plaster casts of American fishes which now occupy the wall cases 
and some of the floor cases in that space. The old standards and 
bases formerly used for them were entirely discarded, and the casts 
fastened directly on the backs of the cases, except those of the flat- 
fishes, which are placed horizontally on sandy bottoms in table cases. 
Though the amount of work involved in restoring this material, 
mainly performed by Mr. William Palmer, was very great, it is fully 
justified by the residts, and in its present condition the collection is 
as attractive as it is interesting and instructive. Under the direction 
of Dr. Paul Bartsch, considerable advancement was made with the 
installation of marine invertebrates in the south hall of the second 
floor, a large number of specimens having been prepared and colored, 
and the arrangement of the faima north of Cape Cod tentatively 

The greater part of the systematic series of animals and the faunal 
series of the IMstrict of Columbia were transferred to new cases. In 
the osteological hall three new cases were added, namely, a large 
wall case containing a comparative exhibit of the limbs of verte- 
brates; a table case containing articulated and disarticulated skele- 
tons of the various classes of vertebrates; and another of the same 
kind in which the chemical constituents of the animal body are illus- 
trated. A new and striking feature introduced among the exhibits 
consists of 19 greatly enlarged models of the heads of as many different 
kinds of bats, done in wax by Mr. E. E. Hannan and afterwards cast 
in plaster, which serve to bring out clearly the peculiar physiognomy 
of these small mammals. 



The department of geology received 168 accessions aggregating 
20,285 specimens, distributed among the several divisions and 
sections, as follows: Systematic and applied geology, 586; mineralogy 
and petrology, 4,983; invertebrate paleontology, 12,268; vertebrate 
paleontology, 647; and paleobotany, 1,801. Excellent progress was 
made in all branches of the work, including the classification and 
arrangement of the reserve collections, the improvement of the 
exhibition series, and the perfecting of the records of specimens, to 
such an extent, in fact, as to place the department in much better 
condition than at any previous time in its history. All of the col- 
lections, with the exception of certain unworked material, have been 
made readily accessible, and by means of systematic card catalogues, 
which have been mostly brought down to date, the exact location of 
any particular specimens may be quickly ascertained. 

Sygtemdtic and applied geology. — ^Among the more important 
accessions to this division were a beautiful specimen of arborescent 
copper free from gangue, and another showing the same occurrence 
on a smaller scale in the original sandstone. They came from mines 
near La Paz, Bolivia, and were received from the U. S. Geological 
Survey. Exceptionally fine examples of zinc ores showing auri- 
chalcite and smithsonite from the Tintic mining district, Utah, were 
presented by the Yankee Cionsolidated Mining Company, of Salt 
Lake City, through Mr. Victor C. Heikes. A series of radio-active 
materials and products, assembled by Dr. George F. Kunz, of New 
York City, and transmitted by him as a gift, includes specimens from 
Sir William Crookes, of London, England, and Dr. Alexander Phillips, 
of Princeton University. A number of interesting laterite specimens 
from various localities in India were obtained in exchange from the 
Geological Survey of India. The additions to the meteorite collection 
were as follows: Three nearly complete individuals of the Holbrook 
meteoric stone which fell July 19, 1912, near Aztec, Ariz., donated 
by Mr. F. C. Chekal, of Holbrook, Ariz. ; an excellent example of a 
nearly complete individual of the Holbrook meteorite, weighing 1,120 
grams, the gift of Mr. Clarence S. Bement, of Philadelphia, Pa., 
through Prof. F. W. Clarke; an example, weighing 625 grams, of the 
interesting brecciated meteoric stone which fell at St. Michel, Finland, 
July 12, 1910, acquired through exchange with the Foote Mineral 
Company, of Philadelphia, Pa.; and 18 fragments filling important 
gaps in the exhibition series, purchased from Mrs. Coonley Ward. 

The installation and labeling of the exhibition collections received 
a proportionately large amount of attention. A work well advanced 
and soon to be completed was the provision of group labels for the 
cases in the section of applied geology, intended to broadly desig- 


nate their contents, and so placed as to be conspicuous without 
jnarring the general effect. In course of preparation was another 
series of larger, supplementary labels, containing such descriptive 
scientific and industrial information as will lead to a fuller compre- 
hension of the exhibits than can be obtained from the specimens 
thexnselyes. These labels, which will be accompanied bj maps show- 
ing the important producing centeis for each of the industries repre- 
sented, will be framed against the walls, each in close juxtaposition 
with the group to which it relates. In connection with the work of 
labeling, the exhibition cases were thoroughly refurbished, the speci- 
mens remounted and many of them reidentified and numbered. 
Minor changes and additions were also made, including the installa- 
tion of a series of 14 wall panels, each 48 by 96 inches, intended 
ptunarilj for displaying large slabs of building <^d oma^ei^tal stones. 
Two new wall cases were provided for exhibits of onyx marble and 
mineral waters, and four additional pedestals or bases were added in 
the hall of systematic geology. The Shepard collection of meteorites 
was overhauled, many of the small specimens were withdrawn from 
exhibition and the remainder arranged in a small Kensington case, 
thereby giving the collection greater individuality. Readixig tables 
with reference books were placed in the various halls. 

The reserve series was entirely rearranged in drawers, by kind 
and locality, and indexed by cards. This index, now consisting of 
about 20,000 cards, furnishes a classified record of aU the material, 
with cross references, and an alphabetical list of the economically 
significant minerals so far as it has been possible to identify them 
without exhaustive chemical study. 

The head curator of the department. Dr. George P. Merrill, under a 
grant from the National Academy of Sciences, continued his researches 
on the minor constituents of meteorites, of which a prelixninary 
report was published. Further work in this direction is contem- 
plated. Dr. Merrill also investigated and published on the Cullison, 
Perryville and Holbrook meteorites, and had in progress a series of 
simple tests designed to show the relative solubility of certain types 
of building materials in water acidulated with carbonic acid. Mr. 
Chester G. Gilbert and Dr. J. E. Pogue, assistant curators, respec- 
tively, of the divisions of geology and of mineralogy and petrology, 
made a detailed study of the copper ores of the Moimt Lyell region, 
Tasmania, and undertook preliminary work looking toward an inves- 
tigation of the origin of the chromite ores and of the nature of the 
copper in the so-called cupriferous pyrrhotite type of ores. 

MiTierdLogy and petrology. — The most noteworthy acquisition of 
minerals consisted of 51 specimens received from the Geological Sur- 
vey, including excellent specimens of ferberite, wolframite, scheelite, 
Toscoelite, rutile, cassiterite, etc. Polished and impolished speci- 


mens of chrysoprase and rutile in quartz, pink tourmaline with crystals 
of lepidoUte, a specimen of manganese from Panama, and six speci- 
mens of polished agate constituted a valuable gift from Mr. A. E. 
Heighway, of New York City, to whom the Museum was also indebted 
for the loan of 3 tourmaline crystals and 4 cut pieces of gem chryso- 
prase, the latter being exceptionally fine examples. Eleven speci- 
mens of gems, including a beautiful suite of polished black opals from 
New South Wales and jade from China, were obtained by purchase. 
All of the important accessions in petrology were transmitted by the 
Greological Survey and comprised the following, namely: One him- 
dred and seventy-one specimens illustrating the geology and ore 
deposits of the Park City district, Utah, described in Professional 
Paper No. 77 of the Survey, by Mr. J. M. Boutwell; 125 specimens 
of rocks from the Northeastern and Republic mining districts of 
Washington, described in a bulletin of the Survey now in press, by 
Prof. Waldemar lindgren and Mr. Howland Bancroft; and 461 rock 
and ore specimens from the mining districts of New Mexico, described 
in Professional Paper No. 68 of the Survey, by Prof. Lindgren, Mr. 
Louis C. Graton and Mr. Charles H. Gordon. 

The reorganization of the collections in this division, following the 
same lines as in systematic and applied geology, was carried well 
toward completion. A number of very desirable additions were 
made to the exhibition series of minerals, and an extensive display of 
petrological material was installed. The work of rearranging and 
labeling the reserve series, including the cleaning of specimens, was 
sufficiently advanced to make these collections convenient of access, 
the specimens most needed for reference being provided for in and 
adjacent to the laboratories in the third story and the remainder, 
constituting the greater bulk of the material, being stored in cases 
in the attic. The segregation of the duplicate specimens was also in 
large part accomplished. The work of the year related very largely 
to the petrological collections, the minerals having previously received 
most attention. The former are of very considerable extent and in- 
clude many type sets from the Geological Survey. The labeling of 
the exhibition series as now constituted was completed, and card 
catalogues covering the same, as also the reserve series, the type 
specimens and the duplicates, have been prepared. 

The comprehensive monograph on the turquois, mentioned in the 
last report, was completed by Dr. Pogue, who also made a crystal- 
lographic study of cerussite. 

InvertebnUe pdleorUology. — Most prominent among the additions to 
the section of invertebrate paleontology were three transfers from the 
Geological Survey. The first of these comprised the type, figured 
and other important specimens, to the number of 1,952, described 
by Prof. Henry S. Williams in two monographs now in press by the 


Survey, one of which deals with the Middle Deyonian rocks, particu* 
larly of New York State, and the other and larger one with tiie early 
Devonian rocks of Msdne, from which the Museum has hitherto had 
practically no materiaL The second consisted of 300 specimens from 
the Silurian rocks of the Eastport (Maine) quadranglei including 
many types, which have been the subject of a paper by Prof. Williams 
published by the Museum, and of a larger work to be issued by the 
Survey, and which are of particular interest as the area had not 
previously been represented in the Museum, and also because of the 
relationship of the Maine Silurian faunas to those of Europe. The 
third accession, containing approximately 4,000 Qrdovidan fossils 
from the Central Basin of Tennessee, collected several years ago by 
Mr. E. O. Ulrich and Dr. R. S. Bassler, although including no type 
material is of much stratigraphic value. 

Some 800 specimens of Paleozoic fossils from the Detroit Biver and 
other series of Canada, obtained by purchase from Bev. Thomas 
Nattress, of Amherstburg, Ontario, are especially important in that 
they illustrate the life of the uppermost Silurian and lowermost 
Devonian formations of the Detroit Biver region, from which the 
Museum has hitherto received no collections. The material derives 
additional significance from the fact that it can not be duplicated. 
About 1,000 specimens of lowest Silurian fossils were collected for 
the Museum in southwestern Ohio by Dr. Bassler, and about 600 
specimens of Devonian and Lower Carboniferous mollusks from the 
Mississippi Valley were contributed by Mr. Frank Springer. ']Vo 
collections of Tertiary fossils from various localities in the Canal 
Zone, collected for the Museum by Mr. D. F. MacDonald, the geolo- 
gist of the Isthmian Canal Commission, were received during the 
year, one through that Commission, the other through the Costa 
Bica-Panama Boundary Arbitration Commission. Two fine slabs of 
fossil crinoids, presented by Mr. Thomas E. "V^UIiams, of Arvonia, 
Va., through Prof. T. Nelson Dale, are of such exceptional character 
that they were placed on exhibition. An important series of 66 
Mesozoic sponges, desired for display purposes, was obtained in ex- 
change from the Peabody Museum of Yale University. 

Much attention was paid to the improvement of the exhibition 
collections of invertebrate paleontology, which included the fol- 
lowing new installations, namely, a geological column illustrating 
the arrangement of the rock formations of New Hampshire; a selec- 
tion from the remarkably preserved fauna of the Middle Cambrian 
formations of British Columbia, collected and described by Secretary 
Walcott; a biological series of fossil sponges and graptolites; and a 
large slab of the crinoid ScyphacrimLS. A card catalogue of the 
specimens on exhibition and the manuscript for about 1,200 labels 
were prepared. The acquisitions of the year were catalogued and 


arranged; the card catalogue of all Paleozoic fossils was brought down 
to date; tixe large number of thin sections, many of which remained on 
the rough glass slides on which they were made, were transferred to 
fresh slides and properly covered and labeled; and the collection 
of Cambrian brachiopods described by Secretary Walcott in Mono- 
graph 51 of the Geological Survey was arranged and partially labeled. 
Some 50 boxes of material which had been in storage were opened 
and their contents appropriately assigned. Mr. Frank Springer 
gave generously of his time to the classification and arrangement of 
the large collection of fossil echinoderms, of which about one-third, 
filling over 300 standard drawers, had been revised by the end of the 
year. The Tertiary collections, under Dr. William H. Dall, were also 
in course of revision looking to the improvement of their installation. 

Dr. Charles D. Walcott, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 
continued his studies of the Lower and Middle Cambrian faunas of the 
Canadian Rockies, paying particular attention to the finely preserved 
material from the Burgess shale at Field, British Columbia. He 
finished and pubUshed his researches on the Upper Cambrian fauna 
of New York, and had well advanced a monograph on the trilobite 
genus DiceUocephdlus. Dr. R. S. Bassler, curator of the division 
of paleontology, conducted researches in preparation of a monograph 
on the bryozoa of the American Tertiary, which is expected to occupy 
him for at least another year. He completed an article based on a 
new exhibit of fossil crinoids and prepared the faunal and illustra- 
tion sheets for the Cincinnati Folio of the Geological Survey. Mr. 
Frank Springer, associate in paleontology, carried well toward com- 
pletion his monograph on the Orinaidea JUxibiliaf the numerous 
quarto plates for which were finished, and had nearly ready for pub- 
lication a monograph on the crinoid genus Scyphocrinus. He also 
had in preparation an article on the peculiar group of CremacrinidaB. 
Dr. WiUiam H. Dall, associate curator in charge of the Cenozoic col- 
lection, completed a study of the Oligocene deposits of Tampa, Fla., 
and had nearly finished a description of the new brackish water 
fauna of the Satilla River of Georgia, and of Alexander, Tex. He 
was also engaged in working up the Tertiary fauna of western America 
and devoted considerable attention to that of the Panama Canal 
Zone in collaboration with the geologist of the Isthmian Canal Com- 

Vertebrate paleontology. — ^Through the addition of over 400 speci- 
mens, representing many new genera and species, to the already 
important collection of rare early Tertiary (Fort Union) mammals 
from Sweet Grass County, Mont., this section is now in possession 
of a sufficient variety of material to make possible an intelligent 
study of the fauna of that geological horizon. In Pleistocene cave 
deposits near Cumberland, Md., Mr. J. W. Gidley collected over 100 


specimens; representing 22 recognizable genera and a slightly greater 
number of species, several of which are new to science. Mr. Copley 
Amory, jr., of Columbia University, while serving as a collaborator 
of the Museum, obtained some 30 fragmentary fossil mammal bones 
from the Old Crow Kiver, Yukon Territory, about 100 miles north 
of the Arctic Circle, one of which is a phalanx or toe bone of a species 
of large camel, the first evidence of the former occurrence of this 
animal north of the United States. A nearly complete skull of a* 
fossil horse, which had been described by Dr. O. P. Hay, and a tooth 
of a mastodon were received as a loan from Mr. C. P. Snyder, of 
Tofty, Alaska. A miscellaneous collection of fossil mammalian 
remains from the Miocene deposits of the shores of Chesapeake Bay 
in the vicinity of Chesapeake Beach, Md., was presented by Mr. 
William Palmer and Mr. A. C. Weed, of the Museum staff. 

By the employment of temporary help an exceptional amount of 
preparatory work was accomplished, probably more than in any pre- 
vious year. Attention was mainly directed to certain miscellaneous 
material belonging to the Marsh collection, consisting of fragmentary 
vertebrate remains still embedded in the matrix as received from 
the field a number of years ago. This material fills several hundred 
boxes and trays, of wldch the contents of 46 boxes and 150 Itajs were 
cleaned up and the bones assembled for each individual specimen 
represented. Several new and unexpected finds resulted, including 
many complete ribs of TdeoceraSj a number of skulls and jaws of the large 
creodont Merycoehosrus and of rare carnivores from the John Day and 
Miocene beds of Nebraska, and a new genus and species of dinosaur 
from the Lance forination of Wyoming which has been described by 
Mr. Gilmore under the name T%e8celo8auru8 neglectus. The last 
mentioned is represented by a nearly complete skeleton, which seems 
to have been entirely overlooked by Prof. O. C. Marsh, under whose 
direction the material was collected. Much was also done toward 
cleaning the specimens from the cave in Cumberland, Md., received 
during the year. Other work turned out by the preparators com- 
prised a free mount of the small two-homed rhinoceros, Diceralheriumj 
a relief mount of the dinosaur Stegoscuurus stenops, moimts of a large 
hind limb of BrorUosaurus and of a considerable niunber of small 
batrachians and reptiles, and remounts of a skeleton of Hesperomis 
regalis and of a cast of Pareiasaurus haini. The type specimen of 
Hoplitasaurus marBhi was cleaned, good progress was made on a free 
moimt of a skeleton of Stegdsauras, of which genus some 100 separate 
bones of other individuals were prepared for the reserve series, and 
work on a nearly complete tail of a large bipedal dinosaur, Trachodon, 
was well under way. 

Mr. Charles W. Gilmore, assistant curator of fossil reptiles, de- 
scribed the new dinosaiu: from the Lance formation of Wyoming 


above referred to, and continued work on his monograph of the 
armored dinosauis represented in the Museum collection, with special 
reference to the osteolc^y of Stegasaurus, which he expects to finish 
during the current year. Mr. James W. Oidley, assistant curator of 
f os&dl mammals, completed a preliminary investigation of the recently 
discovered cave deposits at Cumberlimd, Md., and continued his 
study of the Fort Union mammals. 

Pdleoboiany. — ^Tlie principal addition to the section of paleobotany, 
rec^ved from the Geolc^cal Survey, consisted of 271 types and 
figured specimens and about 1,500 other specimens of (>etaceous 
and Tertiary plants from the Baton-Mesa region of Colorado and 
New Mexico, which had served as the basis of a monograph by Dr. 
F. H. Enowlton, now in press by the Survey. 

The introduction of two new wall cases in the exhibition hall per- 
mitted a partial readjustment of the collections there. The reserve 
series of tiie section was rearranged and labeled, largely through the 
services of Mr. T. E. Williard, of the Geological Survey, under the 
supervision of Dr. Enowlton. The arrangement is stratigraphical 
and by locality, and is covered by a card catalogue. Dr. Knowlton, 
who is custodian of mesozoic plants, continued his studies on the 
Museum collection of fossil plants from Florissant, Colo. 

ExamiTuition of specimens. — ^The department of geology, more than 
either of the others, is called upon to examine and report on specimens 
sent to the Museum for determination from all parts of the country. 
During last year 540 separate lots were received, of which 494 lots 
consisted of rocks, ores, and minerals, forwarded mainly in the belief 
that they would be found to indicate mineral deposits of value. 
While the Museum is not equipped for conducting elaborate analyses, 
simple determinative methods are sufficiently conclusive in most 
cases, and such information as could readily be given was furnished to 
the applicants. 

Explorations. — ^The only geolo^cal field work carried on directly by 
the Museum consisted of the examination of a small cave in Devonian 
limestone exposed in a railroad cut near Cumberland, Md., which 
was found to contain a large number and great variety of fossil verte- 
brate remains of Pleistocene age. The locality was visited by Mr. 
J. W. Gidley in October, 1912, and again in May and June, 1913, 
without, however, completing the investigation. In the material 
brought to the Museum over 30 distinct species of mammals have 
already been distinguished, the most of which represent forms now 
extinct or living in remote regions. Among them are the jaws of a 
new species of dog and the nearly complete skuU of an extinct ante- 
lope closely related to the eland of Africa. While the specimens are 
all fragmentary, some of them are sufficiently well preserved to be 
used for exhibition purposes. 
82377®— NAT Mus 1913 6 


Dr. Charles D. Walcott, Secretary of the Institution, continued his 
geological investigations in the Canadian Bockies, and in the Mount 
Robson region of Alberta discovered a new and interesting Cambrian 
fauna. His season's work resulted in a very large and rich collection 
of Cambrian fossils. Dr. K. S. Basdler, on detail for severd weeks 
with the United States and Maryland geological surveys, obtained 
important series of fossils for the Museum in Ohio and Maryland, and 
Mr. Copley Amory, jr., serving as a collaborator of the Museum and 
at his own expense, secured interesting vertebrate remains in Alaska, 
as before described. 

Under the direction and at the expense of Mr. Frank Springer, 
associate in paleontology, Mr. Frederick Braun made prolonged trips 
through the Appalachian Valley from Virginia to Tennessee in search 
of crinoids and cystids in the Ordovician limestone. Later, in the 
region of Cape Girardeau, Mo., Mr. Braun secured from Lower De- 
vonian rocks some remarkable examples of the bulbous rooted cri- 
noid, ScypTiocrirvus, which show that the so-called Ccmuirocrimu is 
only the root of this form. Four large slabs containing specimens 
illustrating this discovery were sent to the Museum. 


Somewhat over a year ago, as explained in the last report, active 
steps were taken toward rehabilitating those branches of the depart- 
ment of the arts and industries which, established in 1880, have for 
a considerable period been in a disorganized condition owing to the 
necessity of turning over to other subjects the space they had been 
occupying, and thereby forcing their collections into storage. By the 
transfer of the natural history departments to the new building ac- 
conunodations have been secured for renewing the work in these neg- 
lected branches, which will be pressed as rapidly as the means permit. 
The present plans call for the development and illustration of the 
several subjects on a broader and more practical basis than had orig- 
inally been contemplated, so that, aside from the primary purpose 
of education, the collections will serve as distinct aids to the great 
industries of the United States in demonstrating their importance 
in the life of our people and in recording the economic changes tak- 
ing place in each of tiiem. The progress made up to the close of last 
year, as evidenced in the exhibition halls, was sufficiently great to 
very materially attract public notice. 

In extending its influence over the industrial interests of the 
country with a view to their promotion and their regulation, the 
Federal Government has established a niunber of bureaus for con- 
ducting investigations and experiments, and even for rendering direct 
assistance which is being done in many ways. With this important 


work the Museum does not come in competition. Its object in this 
connection as with the natural history branches, and as defined by 
law, is to supplement the activities of the bureaus and to cooperate 
in furthering their purposes. The Museum is the depository for the 
material things collected by these bureaus or desirable to assemble 
in their behalf and in behalf directly of the industries themselyes, 
illustrating the extent and variety of raw materials used by the lat- 
ter, their methods, their products and their history. As to ike utility 
of the Museum's part in this great field, almost daily instances can 
be cited, despite the present very incompleteness of the collections, 
and with the roimding out of its organization and the building up 
of its collections, the department cannot fail to do for this country 
what corresponding institutions have accomplished for the indus- 
tries of England, France and Germany. 

Without disturbing at present the relations of the several art- 
industrial branches which have continued to be administered under 
the Museum organization into three departments, established in 1897, 
and also without fully maturing plans for a thoroughly comprehensive 
department of the arts and industries, attention has for the moment 
been mainly directed to two subjects which are of paramount impor^ 
tance and which, next to those industries concerned with the produc- 
tion of food, occupy the foremost place among the industries of this 
coimtry, namely, textiles and mineral technology. In connection 
with the former subject, however, certain other products of animal 
and vegetable origin are likewise receiving consideration. 

Owing to the diversity of conditions imderlying the illustration of 
the different industries, a uniform policy applicable to all branches is 
quite impossible. With the textiles and certain other subjects in 
which this method can be carried out, it is proposed, as in natural 
history, to divide the collections into two main groups, an exhibition 
series and a study or reference series. As planned for the division 
of textiles, the e^ibition series, aside from a historical display, set- 
ting forth important stages in its development, will be mainly illus- 
trative of the latest processes and products of the industry, the mate- 
rials being selected and arranged and labeled to furnish an impressive 
object lesson for the public. The reference series, maintained for the 
benefit of manufacturers and technical students, will, on the other 
hand, consist of a large, comprehensive and constantly increasing col- 
lection of authentic and standardized raw and manufactured mate- 
rials, which, not requiring to be displayed, may be provided for in a 
compact arrangement, though demanding an elaborate classification, 
provisions for easy reference, and a system of labeling and cataloguing 
that will tend to its full and ready utilization. In mineral technology* 
the conditions are not dissimilar, though its field has for some time 


been partly covered by the collections of applied geology and min- 
eralogy organized as branches of the department of geology. The 
most important work to be inmiediately undertaken relates to the 
processes of mining and manufacture. 

The division of mineral technology, which had been nominally 
recognized since 1904, with Dr. Charles D. Walcott as honorary 
curator, was last year given a definite status with a paid curatorship. 
Mr. Chester G. Gilbert, previously assistant curator of systematic and 
applied geology, was appointed to this position but as the change did 
not take place imtil in June, there is essentially no progress to report 
in this connection. The extensive collections received from exhibit- 
ors at the St. Louis Exposition of 1904, consisting of various models 
and of many examples of crude and finished mining products, wiU 
first be gone over, and as much of the material as is of permanent 
value will be put in shape as rapidly as possible. Attention will also 
at once be given to the formulation of plans covering at least the more 
important features to be illustrated in the public halls, in order that 
steps may be taken without delay to acquire the necessary additional 
exhibits. The work of preparing and installing the models, some of 
which are large and compUcated, involves considerable thought and 
labor, and must, therefore, proceed somewhat slowly, but the several 
rooms will be successively opened to the public as they are placed in 
presentable condition. The exhibition as a whole promises to be 
especially notable and quite in advance of anything of the kind here- 
tofore attempted. 

The reestablishment of the division of textiles was effected some- 
what over a year earlier, or on March 1, 1912, with the appointment 
as curator of Mr. Frederick L. Lewton, who was also given charge 
of such other economic plant and animal products as are not other- 
wise specifically provided for. The last four months of the fiscal 
year 1912 were mainly occupied in unpacking and overhauling the 
collections formerly exhibited, but long in storage, a work which 
continued into the early part of last year. Much of the material was 
found to have seriously deteriorated, though the greater part remained 
in condition to be utilized, and, having been mostly assembled over 
25 years ago, it is especially valuable for its bearing on the history 
and development of the subjects represented. Notwithstanding the 
late period of the year when this work was started, a very considerable 
exhibition of a provisional nature, based entirely on these collections, 
had also been installed by the end of June, 1912. In 37 cases on the 
gallery of the south hall in the older building were arranged a series 
of the raw materials and of the successive stages of manufacture of all 
the important textile and cordage fibers, comprising silk, cotton and 
other seed hairs, flax, hemp, jute and other bast fibers, palm, grass, 
leaf and other structural fibers, wools and hairs, felt, knit goods. 


carpetS; cordage, and machine-made laces. Many samples of hand- 
some Japanese figured silks were also shown. Placed tentatively in 
the west south range were exhibits of raw silks, raffia, and pine needle 
fiber, manufactured ramie, ingrain carpets, and paper fabrics. Of 
animal products, 15 cases were filled with specimens illustrating the 
utilization and manufacture of ivory, bone, horn, tortoise-shell, 
whalebone, feathers, hair, bristles, gut, sponges, shells, and leather. 
Of the collection of foods no definite disposition had been made 
except to fumigate and further safeguard for reference the very 
valuable series of food materials of the American Indians, which were 
collected during important ethnological investigations and which it 
would now be impossible to replace. 

During last year marked progress was made in the acquisition of 
textile material, in the extension of the exhibition collections, and in 
the general work of the division. All of the producers who were 
approached, recognizing the importance of the scheme proposed in its 
bearing on this varied and extensive industry which comes into such 
intimate and personal relation with the people, gave it their unquali- 
fied approval, with such cordial assurance of support as to insure the 
realization of the Museum's plans in this direction. The exhibitions 
of the division will center in the south hall of the older building, where 
the installations of the year were mainly placed. Thence they will 
extend into the east-south range and the southeast court, and occupy 
such of the adjacent galleries as they may require. 

The total number of accessions during the year in the line of 
textiles was 33, of which the more important, all generously pre- 
sented except as otherwise noted, were as follows: A collection of silk 
fabrics, etc., from Messrs. Cheney Brothers, of South Manchester, 
Conn., consists of piece-dyed, yam-dyed, printed, jacquard, and pile 
goods, samples of raw and thrown silk, and specimens illustrating 
processes in the manufacture of spun silk yam. The series showing 
the utilization of silk wastes in the manufacture of spun silk yams 
is of special interest as this branch of the industry is but little known 
by the general public. The samples of dress silks comprise the 
finest qualities of satins, foulards, taffetas, ottomans, bengalines, 
chiffons, voiles, crdpes, etc., while the drapery silks include broch69, 
armures, satin damasks, fine reproductions of antique brocades, 
reproductions of Venetian velvets, etc. The National Silk Dyeing 
Company, of Paterson, N. J., contributed a collection of silk fabrics 
and yams which has been arranged to show the application of color 
to silk and Ulustrate skein and piece dyeing and surface and warp 
printing of silks. It includes skeins of thrown silk arranged in a 
carefully graduated series of 150 shades. The Bureau of Entomology 
of the Department of Agriculture deposited a series of silk cocoons 
and raw silk, and a few models of appliances used in rearing silk- 


worms, besides a papier-m&ch6 model of a silkworm 24 inches long, 
which may be taken apart for studying the internal anatomy. Sam- 
ples of the principal varieties of commercial raw silk were received 
from Messrs. A. P. Villa & Brothers, of New York City. 

For a large number of 3-yard samples of plain and fancy cotton 
goods, comprising percales, shirtings, organdies, challies, crdpes and 
flannels, in dress goods; and silkalines, cretonnes, drillings, scrims, 
and etamines, in drapery and upholstery materials, the Museum is 
indebted to the Pacific Mills, of Lawrence, Mass., through Messrs. 
Lawrence & Co., of Boston; and from the same source were also 
secured 89 large folio albums containing samples of American and 
foreign cotton, silk and woolen goods, covering the period between 
1878 and 1910, which will form the basis for an extensive reference 
collection arranged by periods. Specimens of velveteen and corduroy, 
illustrating the processes of manufacture, with which most persons 
are unfamiliar, were presented by the Merrimack Manufactming Co., 
of Lowell, Mass., likewise through Messrs. Lawrence & Co. A set 
of official grades of white American cotton now used in all cotton 
exchanges for grading American upland cotton, and a large collection 
of carefully identified raw plant fibers, which will be of great value 
in the preparation of microscopic mounts of authentic material, 
were received by transfer from the Bureau of Plant Lidustry of the 
Department of Agricultiu^. Samples of rough and harsh Peruvian 
and Chinese cotton imported into the United States for mixing with 
the wool in the production of flannels, underwear and hosiery, were 
contributed by the Wonalancet Co., of Nashua, N. H., and specimens 
of cotton dress linings, by Messrs. A. G. Hyde & Sons, of New York. 

The American Woolen Co., of Boston, Mass., presented a fine series 
of specimens and a set of 71 photographs illustrating the processes in 
the manufacture of worsted yam according to both the French and 
English systems, and also samples of woolen and worsted fabrics, 
the latter having been prepared in the National and Providence 
Worsted Mills, at Providence, R. L, under the direction of Mr. O. B. 
Bartlett, assistant treasurer. From Mr. Augustus E. Ingram, 
American consul at Bradford, England, was received a series of 
specimens and photographs mounted on ten large cards, illustrating 
the manufacturing processes for fine wools, colored yam-spinning, 
blending of colored tops and the finishing processes for worsted goods, 
an instructive exhibit prepared by Prof. A. M. Barker of the Brad- 
ford Technical College with the consent of the Education Committee 
of the city of Bradford. 

Examples of curtain fringes and upholstery trimmings, contributed 
by the William H. Horstmann Company, of Philadelphia, Pa., 
elucidate the great transformation in the types of household uphol- 
stery trimmings which has taken place during the last decade, in 


which the heavy silk tassels and fringes have given place to sanitary 
decorations in the form of light cotton trinmiings. The same com- 
pany also presented 5 pairs of heavy silk curtain loops, imported by 
tho founder of the firm about 40 years ago, being authentic specimens 
representing different periods of design, from the Gothic to the 
Napoleonic period. 

A series of specimens showing the manufacture of linen thread, in- 
cluding rough and dressed samples of Dutch, Flemish, Irish and 
Courtri flax, and yams and thread in hanks and on spools, was donated 
by the Linen lliread Co., of New York City; and another series 
covering the manufacture of ramie thread and yam, from the crude 
fiber to the finished inaterial, and including weaving, knitting and 
novelty threads, was received from the Superior Thread & Yam Co., 
of New York City. 

A very instructive exhibit, including both specimens and photo- 
graphs, demonstrating the manufacture of Wilton and Brussels 
rugs and carpets, from Mr. M. J. Wbittall, of Worcester, Mass., has 
attracted much attention. It contains a partly finished piece of 
Brussels and Wilton carpet, showing in place the wires by means of 
which the looped or velvet surfaces are obtained. Samples of millinery 
braids, including many beautiful patterns and illustrating the 
variety of materials from which they are now made, were contributed 
by Messrs. Isler & Guye, of New York, who also furnished a collection 
of the principal varieties of woven or body hats now imported into 
this country. 

A collection of Philippine mats, baskets, hats, fabrics and other 
useful articles, together with the raw, fibrous materials from which 
they are made, and accompanied by photographs and herbarium 
specimens of the plants used, was obtained by purchase from the 
Bureau of Education, at Manila, P. I. It contains fine examples of 
the famous Romblon and Tanay mats and Buntal or Lucban hats. 
The chief value of the collection consists in the correct botanical 
identification of the materials employed in making the various ob- 
jects, and these authentic specimens will be of much value in the 
determination of future acquisitions. 

A 600-hook, single lift, Jacquard machine, made by Crompton 
& Knowles, was presented by the Sauquoit Silk Manufacturing 
Company, of Philadelphia, Pa., and will be used to demonstrate the 
principles and operation of this important textile device. A self- 
threading shuttle of the latest model and complying with the recent 
Massachusetts sanitary shuttle law was the gift of the Draper Com- 
pany, of Hopedale, Mass., which also sent an old loom reed, such as 
was in use 60 or 70 years ago. In this the dents are mad(B of cane 
or split bamboo instead of wire as at present. Specimens of pitch- 
band reeds for use in cotton, silk, and wool looms, and of all-metal 


reeds for fine silk and ribbon looms, were received from the Knowles 
Loom Reed Works, of New Bedford, Mass.; and an unusual hand 
spinning wheel, brought from Belgium by her grandfather about 
200 years ago, was deposited by Mrs. Chas. W. McFee, of Washing- 
ton. The Arabol Manufacturing Company, of New York, contrib- 
uted a comprehensive exhibit of cloth and yarn-finishing materials, 
comprising gums, glues, starches, soaps, oils, sizes, and other stiffen- 
ing or softening compounds. 

Besides the foregoing there were several important additions to 
the collection of vegetable products other than textiles. The most 
noteworthy related to the invention and application of vulcanized 
rubber by the late Charles Goodyear, and was deposited by his 
grandson, Mr. Nelson Goodyear, of New York. The collection 
includes life-size portraits of Charles Goodyear, Charles Good- 
year, jr., and Daniel Webster, done in oils on panels of hard rubber 
by G. P. A. Healy in 1855; a book of manuscript notes and sketches 
pertaining to the application of vulcanized rubber, by Charles Good- 
year; 12 medals of gold, silver, and bronze, awarded the inventor; 
a chatelaine watch and chain, mounted in hard rubber and inlaid 
with jeweb; and other pieces of jewelry. The chatelaine, a gift of 
Charles Goodyear to his wife, is a replica of one presented by him 
to Empress Eug6nie of France. Specimens of gutta percha, rubber 
and rubber-tree products, and of cocoanuts and cocoanut products 
were contributed by the Forestry Department of the Federated 
Malay States, through Mr. Leonard Wray, Commissioner to the 
Third International Rubber and Allied Trades Exposition at New 
York; and a trunk of the Para rubber tree {Heoea hrasxliensis) , 
illustrating the herringbone method of tapping, was presented by 
the Ceylon Commissioners to the same exposition, on behalf of 
the Royal Botanic Gardens, at Peradeniya, Ceylon. A collection 
of small samples of commercial grades of crude rubber was received 
from the New York Commercial Company. 

The Treasury Department, through tJie Supervising Tea Exam- 
iner, furnished samples of the official tea standards which are used 
in testing the quality of every pound of tea imported into the United 
States. There are twelve standards for the current year, repre- 
senting all the main types of tea received from abroad. The Com 
Products Refining Company, of New York, contributed a series of 
specimens IQustrating the starches, sugars, oil, and other products 
obtained from corn. 

The curator of the division, Mr. Frederick L. Lewton, made 
several visits to the textile centers of the country for the purpose 
of gettifig in touch with the textile manufacturers and of studying 
the textile industries at first hand, as well as of soliciting material 
for the Museum, and most of the accessions of the year resulted 


from these trips. A study of the foreign and indigenous cottons, 
begun by him before his appointment to the Museum, resulted in 
the publication during the year of three papers, dealing, respectively, 
with the cottons of the Hopi Indians in Arizona and the Indians 
of Rubdzul in eastern Guatemala, and with a new genus of Hawaiian 
trees which had formerly been considered as congeneric with the 
cottons. A systematic investigation of the cottons of Africa and 
the Indian Ocean region has been commenced with the object of 
determining the number of species and varieties occurring in those 
areas and the proper identification of the types of staples coming 
on the market. An annotated glossary of textile fabrics, which it 
is hoped can be illustrated by actual specimens, has also been started, 
and descriptions of new fabrics appearing on the market and men- 
tioned in the trade papers are being recorded. 


The distribution of duplicate material to schools and colleges for 
teaching purposes comprised 48 regular sets, of which 2 were of 
rocks, 26 of ores and minerals and 20 of fossil invertebrates, and the 
same number of sets specially prepared, consisting mainly of marine 
invertebrates, insects, fishes, rocks, ores, minerals, and fossils, 
besides about 1,500 pounds of material suitable for blowpipe and 
assay analysis. The total number of specimens used for this pur- 
pose was about 7,300. Over 21,000 duplicates were also disposed of 
in exchange transactions, about 84 per cent of this number being 
plants. Two hundred and six lots of specimens were sent to special- 
ists, both at home and abroad, for study and classification, mainly 
on behalf of the Museum, but also to some extent in the interest of 
research work for other institutions. They comprised 6,437 ani- 
mals, 4,542 plants, and 2,048 rocks, minerals and fossils, a total of 
13,027 specimens, besides 742 packages of xmassorted marine inverte- 

The establishments abroad with which exchange relations were had 
during the year were as follows: The British Museum of Natural 
History, London, the Koyal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the University 
Botanic Garden, Cambridge, and Alexandra Park, Manchester, 
England; the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, and the Herbarium of

The permanent acquisitions during the year consisted of 1 1 paint- 
ings, of which 9 are in oil and 2 in pastel. Seven of these were 
additions by Mr. William T. Evans, of New York, to the collection of 
the works of contemporary American painters, of which the initial 
gift, comprising 36 examples, was made in the early part of 1907. 
With consistent faith in the future of the Gallery and encouraged 
by the public appreciation of the part he was taking in furtherance 
of this belated effort to realize one of the most important conditions 
imposed by the Smithsonian Act of 1846, Mr. Evans has generously 
continued year by year to materially augment his most desirable 
donation xmtil at the close of last year it numbered 144 paintings, in 
which 103 artists of this country, some deceased, but the great 
majority still living, were represented. For the period covered it is 
the most comprehensive and the most important collection of Ameri- 
can works that has been assembled in any of our museums. The 
contributions of Mr. Evans during last year were as follows: 

Frank De Haven. Castle Creek Canyon, South Dakota. 

Edwin Willard Deming. The Mourning Brave. 

Robert David Gauley. The Fur Muff. 

Charles Paul Gruppe. The Meadow Brook. 

Walter Shirlaw. Water Lilies. 

Otto Walter Beck. Christ before Pilate, and Suffer the Little Chil- 
dren to Come unto Me, both in pastel. 

The other 4 paintings were comprised in 2 donations and 2 be- 
quests, the former consisting of Twilight after Rain, by Norwood 
Hodge MacGilvary, presented by Mr. Frederic Fairchild Sherman, of 
New York, in memory of his wife, Eloise Lee Sherman; and The 
Wreck, by Harrington Fitzgerald, of Philadelphia, contributed by the 


artist. The first of the bequests, from the late Mrs. Elizabeth C. 
Hobson, of Washington, was a painting executed by Hamdy Bey 
in Constantinople in 1884 expressly for Mrs. Hobson, and entitled 
Tomb of '^Mahomet the Gentleman" at Broussa; the other was a por- 
trait of Col. Albert G. Brackett, U. S. Army, by G. P. A. Healy, de- 
vised to the Gallery by Mrs. Brackett, also formerly a resident of 

The Lewis collection of Washington relics, purchased by the Gov- 
ernment in 1878, contained an oil painting of General Wadtiington by 
an imdetermined artist, which was retained at the Department of the 
Interior when the Lewis collection was transferred to the National 
Museum in 1883. This portrait, more recently tinned over to the 
Smithsonian Institution, was placed in the Gallery during last year, 
as was also a marble allegorical statue entitled H Penseroso, the work 
of Joseph Mozier (1812-1870), which had previously been exhibited 
in the older building. 

Mr. Charles L. Freer annotmces important additions from the Far 
East to the rich collection of American and oriental art of which the 
people of the Nation were made the beneficiaries several years ago. 
Under the terms of the gift, this great and generous donation still 
remains in the custody of Mr. Freer, in Detroit, for further study and 
perfection, and to enable him to work out appropriate methods for 
installing its varied treasures as a basis for planning the building in 
which it will finally be housed in Washington. • 

The loans received by the Gallery, consisting mainly of oil paintings, 
were as follows: From Mrs. Abercrombie-Miller: Alpine Landscape, 
by Hillner, and Sheep, by Eugdne Verboeckhoven. From Dr. Thomas 
M. Chatard: Portrait of Henrietta Maria, by Janssens, Portrait of 
Mrs. Rous, by Sir Peter Lely, and Portrait of Mrs. Nicholas Bosley of 
Hayfields, Md., by Thomas Sully. From Rev. F. Ward Denys: 
Madonna and Child, by Perugino, and Saint Michael, by Guido Reni. 
From Hon. George Peabody Wetmore: Military Review, a water 
color, by Edouard Detaille, and Versailles, by Constant Wauters. 
From Mrs. Frances E. Musgrave: Death Preferred, by J. Van Lerius. 
From Mr. Benson B. Moore: Portrait of Rembrandt, attributed to 
himself. From Mr. J. Carroll Beckwith : The Emperor, by Mr. Beck- 
with. From Mr. and Mrs. Charles Francis Adams: Two portraits of 
Mr. Adams, by Robert Vonnoh, one full length, the other a bust. 
From Mr. Widter R. Tuckerman: Portrait of Joseph Tuckerman, 
D. D., by Gilbert Stuart. From Mrs. Henry WeUs: A copy of 
Murillo's painting The Beggars. From Mrs. Mary Peoli Maginn: 
Cupid C^ed and Love Conquers, by John J. Peoli. From Mrs. 
Florence A. Ebbs: Two pieces of marble sculpture, namely, Cordelia, 
attributed to Harriet Hosmer, and Esmeralda, by RomanelU. 


The screen inclosure in the north wing of the new building, con- 
structed for the paintings of the Gallery and fiu-nishing about 950 run- 
ning feet of interior wall surface, has been fully occupied at all timeS; 
and to some extent the outer surfaces at the ends of the inclosure 
have also been utilized. All permanent acquisitions have, as usual, 
been photographed and glazed as received, only 4 of the paintings in 
the collection, which are of too large a size to permit of this means of 
protection, being without glass at this time. 

The vacancy in the Smithsonian Advisory Conmiittee on the Na- 
tional GaUery of Art, caused by the death of Francis Davis Millet, 
its chamnan, one of the victims of the Titanic disaster in the spring of 

1912, was filled by the appointment of Mr. C. Y. Turner, director of the 
Maryland Institute Schools of Art and Design in Baltimore. There 
have been no other changes in the personnel of this committee since 
its oi^anization in 1908, and its membership is as follows: Mr. C. Y. 
Turner, Chairman, Mr. Frederick Crowninshield, Mr. Edwin H. 
Blashfield, Mr. Herbert Adams, and Mr. WiUiam H. Holmes, Secre- 
tary. The Gallery was represented at the annual convention of the 
American Federation of Arts, held in Washington on May 15 and 16, 

1913, by its curator, Mr. Holmes. 

Below is given a list of the paintings and sculpture which were on 
exhibition in connection with the Gallery at the close of last year, 
June 30, 1913. It includes both the permanent possessions of the 
Gallery and the loans, but none of the many works of art assigned to 
various oiher branches of the Museum, such as graphic arts, history, 
archeology, ethnology, textiles and ceramics.

Although the material which has been assembled in illustration of 
lace making and other textile handicraft still consists mainly of loans, 
through the continued interest of the ladies who have cooperated in 
making the exhibition successful, the collection has been allowed to 
remain practically intact, with interesting additions from year to 
year. As the importance of the collection becomes more fully 
recognized it is hoped that its permanence may be insured through the 
medium of gifts on a larger scale than heretofore. The lace exhibit 
now embraces a fairly coimected series in respect both to the develop- 
ment of the industry and the varieties of laces, and also contains 
some unportant examples which from their quality and rarity form 
striking museum pieces. In fact, though smaller and less conspicuous 
in the matter of display material, the collection ranks high among the 
museum collections of the country. The woric of the year, imder the 
direction as heretofore of Mrs. James W. Pinchot, has related mainly 
to the improvement of the systematic installation and to the more 
complete labeling of both cases and specimens. The hall occupied 
by the collection continues to be one of the most attractive in the 

The lace accessions of the year included a valuable piece of point 
d'Angleterre, presented by Mrs. William Phelps Eno, and the follow- 
ing loans, namely: From Mrs. John Jay White, 13 pieces of point 
d' Alen^n, composing a wide flounce and 2 waists ; from Mrs. James 
Maginn, of New York, 2 French caps, a Flemish ooliar, a pair of silk 
lace mitts, a handkerchief and centerpiece of Venezuelan lace, and a 
black Chantilly lace parasol; and from the Misses Long, an nnideati- 
fied lace of the eighteenth century. An uiteresting oil painting, after 
the Dutch artist Terburg, illustrating the handicraft of the seven- 
teenth century and entitled ''The Lace Maker," presented by Miss 
Julia H. Chadwick, has been iostalled in connection with this col- 

Of embroideries and fabrics other than laces the following were 
received as loans : From Miss Mary H. Williams, a Spanish red velvet 


cope of the sixteenth century, 3 pieces of brocade of the seventeenth 
century, a piece of red silk and 2 pieces of red velvet; from Miss 
Emily Tuckerman, 2 pieces of Louis XIV and 1 of Louis XVI 
embroidery; from the Rev. F. Ward Denys, a laige Persian rug said 
to have been worked after a design by Raphael; and from Mrs. 
James Magiim, a small bag ornamented with beads and 4 embroidered 
handkerchiefs from Cuba, besides several samples for crocheting 
fringe. Mrs. Maginn also deposited 18 Spanish fans of the eighteenth 
century and 1 of the period of Louis XVI; and Mrs. James Tait 
Beck, of Camden, Ala., 2 late ''Empire" fans. 

Among miscellaneous articles placed on exhibition in connection 
with the textiles were a papillon ring and a figurine of an Egyptian 
god mounted in antique gold as a necklace, from Mrs. Jolm Jay 
White; a bracelet of blue enamel and niello work on a woven gold 
band, jfrom Miss Jennie M. Griswold ; a gold bracelet which belonged 
to Mrs. Isaac Chauncy Long, from the Misses Long; and a mirror, 
called a ''trumeau," tiie upper part of which frames an oil painting, 
from Miss Emily Tuckerman. Also placed with the textiles is a 
series of 67 photographs of designs of suits of armor made by Hans 
Holbein for the great tournament of Henry ViJLl, which were received 
as a gift from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. 



The exhibition halls of the Museum are open to the public on every 
week day throughout the year, including holidays, and those in the 
new building on Sundays also. The hours are from 9 a. m. to 4.30 
p. m. on week days, and from 1.30 to 4.30 p. m. on Sundays. 

The total number of visitors admitted to the new building during 
last year was 319,806, an increase over the previous year of 37,919. 
Of this number, 261,636 represented the week-day attendance, and 
58,170 the Sunday attendance, making the daily average for the 
former 836, and for the latter 1,118. At the older Museum building 
the total attendance was 173,858, and the daily average 555, the 
corresponding figures for the Smithsonian building having been 
142,420 and 455, respectively. The Sunday average for the new 
building varied considerably at different periods, having been laigest 
during the spring, and amounting to 3,343 for the month of May. The 
maximum Sunday attendance was 5,134, on May 4. 

The week-day attendance at all of the buildings was very much 
greater in March than in any other month, as is always the case in 
years of presidential inauguration, the Museum being one of the 
principal attractions for the large crowds which gather in Wash- 
ington for that occasion. During inaugural week alone, or from 




March 3 to 8, inclusive, the number of visitors to the new building 
aggregated 31,951, a daily average of 5,325, the lai^est attendance 
on any single day having been 13,236 on March 5. The figures for 
each of the other buildings were about one-half as much. 

The following tables show, respectively, the ntimber of visitors 
during each month of the past year, and for each year beginning with 
1881, when the older Museum building was first opened to the public:

The publications issued during the year consisted of 4 volumes 
and 105 papers printed separately. The former were voltunes 42 
and 43 of the Proceedings, and Bulletins 79 and 81, entitled, re- 


spectiyelj; ''List of North American Land Mammals in the United 
States National Museumi 1911/' by Gerrit S. Miller, jr., and ''A 
Synopsis of the Rotatoria/' by Harry E. Harring. Of the s^arate 
papers 96 belonged to the series of Proceedings, composing all of 
volumes 43 and 44 and parts of volnmes 42 and 45, and 9 belonged to 
volumes 16 and 17 of the Contributions from the National Herbarium. 
They are listed in the bibliography at the end of this report. The 
regular distribution of the above publications aggregated about 
57,300 copies, while of these and former publications some 14,300 
copies were supplied in compliance with special requests. 

Many reports on material belonging to the National Museum or to 
be added to its collections are printed elsewhere than in the Museum 
series. They consist in part of papers, often monographic, issued by 
the scientific bureaus of the Government and other scientific estab- 
lishments, and in part of generally brief accoimts of discoveries 
which it is important should be published more promptly than is 
possible through Government channels. Several of the scientific 
societies offer opportunities for such urgent publication, as does also 
the Smithsonian Institution. Mainly, but not entirely, belonging to 
this class are the following papers printed in the Smithsonian Mis- 
cellaneous Collections during 1913: ''New mammals from eastern 
Panama" and "Descriptions of new mammals from Panama and 
Mexico," by E. A. Goldman; "New rodents from British East 
Africa," "New genera and races of African ungulates" and "New 
races of insectivores, bats and lemurs from British East Africa," by 
Edmund Heller; "New mammals from the highlands of Siberia,"

Li accordance with a provision of the Legislative, Executive, and 
Judicial Act approved August 23, 1912, the work of wrapping, label- 
ing, and despatching all Musexun publications, previously performed 
by the Musemn, was, on October 1, transferred to the direction of the 
Public Printer, and has since been conducted by the Superintendent 
of Documents. This change, however, has not affected the responsi- 
bility and discretion of the Museum in regard to the mailing lists, 
which, together with all special orders, are transmitted to the Super- 
intendent of Documents through its office of correspondence. Li 
addition to the publications, the editorial office also has charge of all 
miscellaneous printmg and binding, the former including a consideiv 
able variety of work, in connection with which the labels for the 
collections figure most conspicuously. 


The Musemn library is wholly technical in character and restricted 
to the class of works needed for the study and classification of the 
collections, but owing to the great diversity of the latter it is required 
to cover a wide range of subjects in the sciences and the arts and 
industries. Originating in the gift by Prof. Spencer F. Baird, the 
second Secretary of the Institution, of his scientific library, it has 
attained considerable size and importance though never approached 
the standard of completeness that would make it even fairly effective; 
and, despite the opportimity of drawiag upon several other large 
Government libraries and that of the Smithsonian Institution, the 
work of the Museum has often been seriously inconvenienced and 
delayed by the lack of books which are not to be found in Washington. 
The annual pm*chase fund has been inadequate to satisfy more than a 
very limited part of the demands. The principal resource in this 


regard has consisted of the Museum's own puUicationSi constituting 
an important asset for exchange, through which have been secured 
the publications of most of the scientific institutions of the world, and 
also those of many individuals. The library has likewise been fortu- 
nate in receiviog a large number of donations, and while some of these 
have come from friends not connected with the Museum, the most 
constant contributors have been members of its staff. Notwithstand- 
ing these several sources of acquisition, however, there are many very 
necessary books published privately from year to year which, under 
present conditions, must continue to be classed as important desid- 

Maintained solely for promoting the work of the Museimi, the 
hbrary is administered with special reference to the convenience of 
the staff, and besides the central rooms in which are kept all general 
works and those treating of two or more subjects, each division and 
each principal office is allowed to have in its inmiediate possession 
such of the publications relating wholly to its province as may be 
desired. These several branch collections, of which there are 33 at 
present, are known as sectional libraries. They are under the super- 
vision of the main Ubrary, from which the books assigned to them are 
withdrawn as by any borrower and with the same responsibilities. 

With the moving of the collections of anthropology, zoology, and 
geology, it was important that the books relating to the same subjects 
be also transferred to the new building. This has now been done, 
leaving the publications on the arts and industries and history in the 
older building, and likewise the botanical library, which is there most 
conveniently located for the division of plants. In view, moreover, 
of the more ample accommodations afforded by the new building and 
the fact that the larger proportion of the publications were uicluded 
in the transfer, it has seemed best that the library there established 
should be the central one for the receipt, recording, cataloguing and 
distribution of all books and for all other preparatory work, and this 
plan has been carried out. 

The equipment of the library space in the new building having been 
completed early in the autumn of 1912, the moving was begun about 
the middle of October, and, including the placing of the books on the 
shelves, was finished in the course of a month. While much still re- 
mained to be done in the matter of verifying and perfecting the 
arrangement, at no tune was there any serious interruption in the use 
of the library or in the continuity of its relations to the sectional 
branches. The rearrangement and cataloguing of the publications 
left in the older building were also taken up and well advanced by the 
close of the year. 

The library received 1,690 books, 2,213 pamphlets and 159 parts of 
volumes during last year, and contains at present 43,692 volumes and 


72|042 unbound papers. There were borrowed from other Govern- 
ment libraries for the use of the staff a total of 4,154 titles, which 
came mainly from the Library of Congress, and to a lesser extent 
from the Department of Agriculture, the Army Medical Museum, and 
the Geological Survey. 

The records of the library, all of which are kept in card form, com- 
prise an accession catalogue, an authors' catalogue, a periodical cata- 
logue, and a lending record. Seven hundred and eighty-two books, 
892 complete volumes of periodicals, and 2,229 pamphlets were catar 
logued during the year, and the Zurich catalogue was brought up to 
date in the matter of classification and arrangement of the cards. 
The number of volumes bound for the library was 881 . 

The new quarters and their equipment may be briefly described as 
follows : 

The space assigned to the library in the new building, located in the 
ground story of the northern section of the east range, consists of what 
was originally a single room, with northern exposure, 107 feet 7 inches 
long by 21 feet 1 inch wide, and a smaller room, facing on the east 
court, measuring 39 feet by 21 feet 4 inches. The former has been 
divided into three compartments for the book stacks, catalogue cases, 
and reading accommodations, while the latter is used for office pur- 
poses and preparatory work. All of the space is well lighted and 
ventilated, the equipment is modem and fireproof, and the facilities 
excellent in all respects. 

The three northern compartments -are separated by fireproof walls 
of macite, with large communicating openmgs. Beginning at the 
east, and with a uniform dhnension of 21 feet 1 inch between the outer 
and the corridor wall, is the stack room, 52 feet 3 inches long, followed 
by a small reading room, 18 feet 1 inch long, and a general reading 
room, also containing the catalogue files, 36 feet 4 inches long. All of 
this area is utilized to the full height of the story, this being accom- 
plished by the introduction of a mezzanine floor in the stack room and 
of galleries in the reading rooms, which are at a uniform height of 7 feet 
11 inches above the ground floor. The furnishings throughout, in- 
cluding slotted shelf uprights with adjustable shelves, card cases, 
mezzanine floor and galleries, stairs and lift, are of the Art Metal 
Construction Co.'s standard construction, and the entire work is sup- 
ported on the ground floor, being braced laterally by comparatively 
few connections with the walls. The material of the stacks, cases and 
drawers is mild cold rolled steel. 

In the stack room the general arrangement of the cases is the same 
both below and above the mezzanine floor. Single-faced stacks 
occupy practically all the wall surfaces, while the body of the room is 
traversed north and south by double-faced stacks, with interspaces 
of about 3 feet. Five of these stacks are of full height, which is 7 feet 


4 inches on the ground floor and 7 feet 6 mches on the mezzanine floor, 
while 4 alternating ones have been carried only to a height of 3 feet 
6 inches, in order that their tops may aerre the purpose of tables in 
arranging and consulting books. On the ground floor the main 
passageway, 4 feet 8 inches wide, is on the window side of the room, 
the main stacks extending thence to join those along the south wall, 
but the lower stacks are much shorter. Above the mezzanine the 
general passageway, reduced to 2 feet 9 inches in width, is on the other 
or south side of the room, the main stacks extending against the piers 
between the windows and the rails in front of them. 

The stacks have a 3-inch base and 4-inch cornice. The uprights, 
spaced for shelves 2 feet 11 inches long, are slotted at 1-inch intervals. 
Besides the fixed shelf at the base, the full height stacks are estimated 
to carry 6 adjustable shelves, and the lower ones proportionally fewer. 
On this basis, the shelf capacity of the room amounts to about 3,500 
lineal feet. The shelves axe 12 iaches wide, of No. 16 gauge steel, 
stiffened at front and back by smoothly turned f-inch rolls shaped to 
receive book supports. The exposed ends of all stacks have label 
holders, 7f by 4 inches, finished in statuary bronze. The surfaces are 
japanned and of a dark green color. The entire construction is of 
the best material adapted to the purpose and the workmanship has 
been thorough. 

In one of the alcoves is a flight of stairs and nearby it is a lift for 
canying books to the upper stoiy. The latter is operated by hand, 
is self-retaining and has a lifting capacity of 75 to 100 pounds. Meas- 
uring 17^ inches square inside and 26 inches high, it is constructed of 
brass wire mesh on the sides and back, with wood floor and wood 
frame top. The shaft is enclosed with iron wire mesh. The mezza- 
nine floor consists of steel framing covered with wired hammered 
glass, having the smooth side up and sand blasted to give good footing 
and reduce the transparency. The glass rests on angle iron which 
projects above it at the sides to the extent of | inch to form a curb, 
between which and all stacks there is an openixig 2 inches wide for 
the circulation of air. All other and larger openings, as at the windows 
and the galleries, in the other rooms, are protected by pipe railing. 

The smaller reading room, which adjoins the stack room and is 
designed for special study purposes, is mostly lined, both above and 
below the gallery, with siagle wall stacks of the pattern before de- 
scribed. The gaUery, of the same construction as the mezzanine 
floor, is 2 feet wide beyond the cases and is reached by iron stairs. 
In one comer on the lower floor is a steel manuscript case, 6 feet 
wide, 3 feet deep and 7 feet 6 inches high, divided vertically into two 
compartments, each with solid steel double doors secured by means 
of rod locks. The other furniture of this room includes a large table. 


The main rea^^ing and consulting room has also a gallery continuous 
with that in the smaller room and of the same width and floor con- 
struction; which extends along the three walls other than that occu- 
pied by the windows. The space above it is filled with wall book- 
stacks of the standard pattern and sisse. Below the gallery the stacks 
are the same on the east side, but on the south and west sides they 
are deepened to 16f inches and modified to accommodate llie cata- 
logue cases. Beginning at the top of a shdf space, 1 foot 9^ inches 
above the floor, are the series of compartments for the cards, followed 
above by another open shelf space, 2 feet 4^ inches high to the imder 
side of the gallery. The catalogue cases are, with one exception, of 
a size to receive 7 drawers in height and 5 in width adapted to the 
standard 5 by 3-inch cards. There are 8 of these cases on ihe south 
wall and 6 on the west wall, with an additional case of the same height 
but only 4 drawers wide. Their aggr^ate capacity is 618 drawers, 
all of which can be conveniently reached from the floor. The drawers 
operate on cushioned slides, and securing rods are used. They hold 
about 1,000 cards each. Extending along the bottom line of these 
cases is a continuous projecting metal shelf or rest 9 inches wide. 

Each of the two windows in the room will have, attached to the 
frame and sill, two oak shelves, divided into low compartments, for 
laying out the periodicals as received pending their assignment. 
The room also contains two large reading tables, measuring 6 by 8 
feet. The entire library space above described ia provided with a 
very complete and convenient arrangement of electric li^tiog. 

The office or preparatory room, which is separated from the library 
proper only by a corridor, contains no gallery, but is fitted up with 
standard cases, 7 feet 6 inches high, which occupy most of the wall 
space and form two stacks extending partway across the room, 
dividing it iato three sections or alcoves. The other furnishings 
consist of plain office furniture and such accessories as are needed for 
the preparation, cataloguing, etc., of the books before they are placed 
on tiie Ubraiy shelves. The aggregate length of the shelving in all 
four rooms is approximately 5,663 feet. 

The library spax^e in the older Museum building is being used with- 
out material clumge, though one of the rooms, containing 610 square 
feet, has been assigned to the sectional library of administration. It 
consists of the ground floor and two galleries of a large room adjoining 
the northwest pavilion, and an enclosed gallery extending along two 
sides of the west north range, with a total floor area of 2,814 square 
feet. The furnishings, which are partly of wood and partly of metal, 
are of old and simple patterns, but the quarters as a whole are suitable 
and convenient for their present purpose.

The aooommodations afforded by the new building were extensively 
utilized during the year for meetings, congresses and other important 
functions. The Anthropological Society of Washington held its regu- 
lar meetings, of which there were 14 during the season, in the larger 
committee room, while the auditorium was used by the Washington 
Society of the Fine Arts for two courses of 6 lectures each and one 
course of 5 lectures, the latter devoted to the great masters of music; 
by the Spanish-American Atheneum, which is organized to encourage 
the study of the hterature and history of Spain and Spanish America, 
for 5 meetings; and by the Naval War College Extension for a series 
of weekly lectures for the benefit of officers of the Navy and Army, 
which extended from the middle of January to the middle of April. 

Of three notable congresses which assembled in this country during 
September, 1912, two held brief sessions in Washington, while the 
third met only here. The former were the Eighth Jntemational 
Congress of Applied Chemistry and the Sixth International Congress 
for Testing Materials, to the members of each of which a reception 
was given, by invitation of the Regents and Secretary of the Insti- 
tution, in the exhibition haUs of the new building on the evenings of 
September 4 and 9, respectively. The Fifteenth International Con- 
gress on Hygiene and Demography met from September 23 to 27, 
inclusive, and of its 9 sections 4 were accommodated in the Museum 
building, namely : Dietetic hygiene and hygienic physiology; Hygiene 
of occupations; Mihtary, naval and tropical (colonial) hygiene; and 
Demography. Two joint sessions and 3 of the 4 plenary sessions 
were also held in the same building, the latter in the auditorium on 
the evenings of September 23, 24 and 25, at which the speakers were, 
successively. Sir Thomas OUver, of Newcastle, England; Dr. Jacques 
Bertillon, of Paris, France; and Ministerialrat Dr. Zahn, of Munich, 
Bavaria. On the evening of the 26th a reception to the delegates and 
members was given in the exhibition halls, in the name of the citizens 
of the District of Colimibia, by the District committee for the congress. 

Other important meetings were as follows: By the American Phil- 
ological Association, the Archaeological Institute of America and the 
Society of Biblical Literature and Exegesis, in joint session from De- 
cember 27 to 30, 1912; by the American Farm-Management Associ- 
ation, on January 21 and 22, 1913; by the National Academy of 
Sciences, which held its annual meeting on April 15, followed by a 
celebration of its semi-centennial anniversary, continuing 3 days 
from April 22, with a reception in the exhibition haUs on the firat 
evening; by the General Federation of Women's Clubs, on April 21 
and 22; by the International Kindergarten Union, which held its 
twentieth annual convention, accompanied by an exhibition of kinder- 


garten work by the local schools, from April 29 to May 2; and by the 
American Surgical Association which, as one of the constituent soci- 
eties of the Congress of American Physicians and Surgeons holding 
its ninth triennial session in Washington, had its meetings in the 
Museum building from May 6 to 8. The Department of Agriculture 
had the use of the auditorium for two conferences, one for the field 
men of the Office of Farm Management, from January 6 to 21 ; the 
other for the employees of the Bmreau of Animal Industry in charge 
of the federal meat inspection service throughout the country, from 
June 2 to 4. A reception in honor of the Daughters of the American 
Revolution was held, by invitation of the Regents and Secretary, on 
the evening of April 12; and another, in honor of Mr. James Wilson, 
who had just retired as Secretary of Agriculture, was given by the 
employees of the Department of Agriculture on the evening of 
March 6. 

Reference may also be made here to the ceremonies attending the 
unveiling of the tablet in honor of Samuel Pierpont Langley, late 
Secretary of the Institution, installed in the vestibule of the Smith- 
sonian building, which took place on May 6 or ''Langley Day." 
The exercises were held in the adjoining main hall, in which had been 
assembled the three successful experimental models of the Langley 
aerodrome and the engine built for the large machine. 

The Museum, in conjunction with the Institution, participated in 
two important congresses abroad. One was the Fourteenth Inter- 
national Congress of Prehistoric Anthropology and Archeology, held 
at Geneva, Switzerland, from September 9 to 15, 1912, at which Dr. 
Ale£ Hrdlidka, a curator of the Museum, was a delegate. The other 
was the Ninth International Zoological Congress, which met at 
Monaco from March 25 to 30, 1913, and at which the Museum rep- 
resentatives were Dr. Leonhard Stejneger, head curator of biology, 
Dr. Charles WardeU Stiles, of the Bureau of the Public Health, and 
Dr. Herbert H. Field, director of the Concilium Bibliographicum, 
at Ztlrich, Switzerland. 


The models and pictures illustrating the competitive designs for 
the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, by Mr. Henry Bacon and Mr. 
John Russell Pope, referred to in the last report, remained on exhi- 
bition throughout the year; and during most of the year the Museum 
was allowed to display two of the interesting models belonging to the 
Isthmian Canal Commission, one being a reUef map of the Gatun 
dam and locks, the other a working model of the Pedro Miguel lock. 


A collection of 100 Japanese paintingB of the Uldyo^ye school, 
belonging to Mr. Yojiro Kuwabara, which had been shown at the 
Japan-British Exhibition in London in 1910 and subseqneatly in 
other European cities, were placed on view from September 21 to 
November 4, 1912, and attracted much attention. A nimiber of 
articles belonging to the Eed Cross Society, mainly illustrative of 
the methods and work of foreign branches, and intended to form 
part of an exhibition by the Society when it shall have obtained a 
suitable home in Washington, were turned over temporarily to the 
custody of the Museum, and opened up to the public on December 14. 

The models of the Panama Canal were installed in the foyer on the 
ground floor of the new building, and the other exhibits in three of 
the rooms which open into it. 


The active organization of the division of mineral technology was 
taken up on June 6, 1913, by the appointment as curator on that 
date of Mr. Chester G. GUbert, who had for some time previously 
been the assistant curator of systematic and appUed geology. Fol- 
lowing the transfer of the collection of grasses from the Department 
of Agriculture, Prof. Albert S. Hitchcock, systematic agrostologist 
in that Department, was made honorary custodian of grasses in the 
Museum on October 10, 1912, and was provided with laboratory 
accommodations in the division of plants in order to facilitate his 
work and his supervision of the entire grass collection. A section of 
diatoms in the division of plants was first definitely recognized dur- 
ing the year and was placed in charge of Dr. Albert Mann, of the 
Bureau of Plant Industry, Department of Agriculture, who was des- 
ignated honorary custodian on January 8, 1913. The Museum col- 
lection of these microscopic forms, to which Dr. Mann has given 
much attention, has recently, through his active interest, been raised 
to a standard of completeness not elsewhere excelled in this country. 

Two members of the staff, Mr. L. D. Burling, assistant curator of 
paleontology, and Dr. J. E. Pogue^ assistant curator of mineralogy 
and petrology, resigned during the year, the former on March 4 to 
enter the service of the Geological Survey of Canada, the latter on 
May 17, 1913, to join the U. S. Geological Survey. Mr. R. P. Tdman 
was appointed aid in the division of graphic arts on May 21, 1913, 
after a temporary service beginning on August 23, 1912, to fill the 
position left vacant by the resignation of Mr. E. W. Huckel on 
July 31, 1912. 

Two natm^alists, not connected with the Government service, 
were designated as honorary collaborators for one year each, namely, 
Mr. Samuel Mixter, of Boston, Mass., from April 1, and Prof. Albert 
M. Reese, of the University of West Virginia, from May 1, 1913. 


Both were to engage in fidd work, contributiiig their collections to 
the Museum, the former intending to visit Alaska and if possible the 
neighboring coast of Siberia, the latter the Philippine Islands. 

The Museum lost three members of its staff by death, Dr. Lester F. 
Ward, honorary associate in paleobotany, Dr. L. T. Chamberlain, 
honorary associate in mineralogy, and Mr. Joseph Palm^, modeler. 

Dr. Lester IVank Ward was bom in JoUet, HI., June 18, 1841, and 
died in Washington, D. C, April 18, 1913. His coUegiate education 
was received at Columbian, now Qeorge Washington, University. In 
1881 he became an assistant geologist, and in 1888 a geologist, on the 
United States Geological Survey. In 1005 he left Washington to join 
the faculty of Brown Univeraily, Providence, R. I., of which he con- 
tinued a member until the time of his decease. His connection with 
the Museum dated from 1882, in ndiich year he was appointed honor- 
ary curator in charge of the collection of fossil plants, his designation 
being changed in 1893 to associate curator. His removal from Wash- 
ington and the disccmtinuance of active relations with the Museum led 
in 1005 to his receiving the honorary title of associate, in recognition 
of his long and knportant services in building up his department. 

Taking up the study of fossil plants at a time when paleobotany as 
a distinct science was hardly recognized, and when almost the only 
workers of national reputation in the subject were Newberry and 
Lesquereux, he rapidly attained distinction as a careful investigator, 
deep thinker, and patient, conscientious worker, and after the death 
of these pioneers he became the acknowledged leader in paleobotany 
in America. Besides his official reports to the Geological Survey and 
several papers issued by the Museum, Dr. Ward was the author of 
many notable contributions in that branch of scientific research, in 
which the philosophical trend of his m^itality is fully indicated, as 
well as in his better-known works on ethics and sociology. The item 
of work, however, which will cause him to be best remembered by 
those who were privileged to be associated with him at the Museum 
is the index and bibliography of fossil plants, which he conceived and 
to which he contributed so much time and conscientious labor. This 
and the library which he accumulated in connection with it form 
together the one great repository of paleobotanical information in 

Dr. Leander Trowbridge Chamberlain, bom at West Brookfield, 
Mass., September 26, 1837, and deceased May 0, 1013, received his 
collegiate education at Yale University, from which he was graduated 
in 1863. After four years in the naval service of the United States, 
Mr. Chamberlain entered the theological seminary at Andover, and, 
finishing the course in 1860, he was ordained in the Congregational 
mimstry the same year. Besides serving continuously as a pastor 
until 1800, Dr. Chamberlain was actively connected with church, 


philanthropic^ and social work in many capacities. He was also a 
founder of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, and a patron 
of, and the curator of Eocene moUusca in, the Academy of Natural 
Sciences of Philadelphia. 

Dr. Chamberlain's relations with the National Museum arose 
through his marriage in 1890 with Miss Frances Lea, daughter of Dr. 
Isaac Lea, the eminent naturalist of Philadelphia, and one of the 
Museum's most generous benefactors through two distinct contribu- 
tions following his death on December 8, 1886. One of these was 
the large and unrivalled collection of Unionidse, or fresh-water mus- 
sels, which had not only been assembled by Dr. Lea at great expendi- 
ture of time and money, but had also been the subject of profound 
research by him, resulting in elaborate and standard publications. 
The other was a collection of gems and precious stones, sufficiently 
rich and yaried to serve as a worthy foundation for an appropriate 
representation of this popular branch of mineralogy. During the 
short period of her married life, only 4 years, Mrs. Chamberlain, who 
had always taken a keen interest in the labors of her father, remained 
the patron of these collections, assisting in theur increase and in the 
increase of the library relating to them. After her death, these duties 
were assumed by Dr. Chamberlain as of the nature of a sacred trust, 
which he faithfully and generously carried out during the many years 
that followed. His aid was not promiscuous, but was spedfically 
directed toward the supplying of deficiencies and the strengthening 
of the collections where it was most needed, and it is especially inter- 
esting to note that through his contributions the Isaac Lea collection 
of UnionidsB has been kept much the foremost of this extensive group 
in the world. 

In 1897 Dr. Chamberlain became honorary custodian of the collec- 
tion of gems and precious stones in the Musexmi, and in 1905 he was 
designated honorary associate in mineralogy. Though long resident 
in New York City, his death occurred in Pasadena, Cal., and it was 
not until after the close of the fiscal year that information was re- 
ceived of the bequest in his will of a considerable sum of money, the 
interest of which is to be used for the increase and improveipent of the 
two Isaac Lea collections. 

Mr. Joseph Palmer, who was bom in Barrow, Suffolk, England, in 
1836, died in Washington on April 19, 1913. While a young man 
he worked for some years at the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, where 
he assisted Prof. B. Waterhouse Hawkins in connection with his 
celebrated restorations of extinct animals. In 1868 he came to 
this coimtry with Prof. Hawkins, who had been commissioned to 
make similar reproductions for Central Park, New York, but this 
work being soon abandoned, Mr. Palmer foimd employment at the 
Park as taxidermist and general assistant at the Musemn, and for 


a time was in charge of the zoological garden. In 1873 began his 
connection with the National Museum, in which for a considerable 
period he was the only skilled preparator on the staff. His versa- 
tility and thorough knowledge of methods made him equally pro- 
ficient in modeling, casting, taxidermy, and osteology, and the col- 
oring of reproductions, and he was especially skillful in the building 
of animal and Indian lay-figure groups. In consequence, his serv- 
ices were laigely availed of in the preparation and installation of 
exhibits for the international expositions in which the Museum 
participated, beginning with the Centennial Exhibition of 1876. 
During his later years his work was with the department of anthro-

Bailey Willis, and numbering about 
1,500 spedmensy are classified and 
described, and their technic, ethnic, 
and chronologic place Is carefully con-

the forms are found to present char- 
acteristics which should distinguish 
them from corresponding relics of the 
historic aborigines of Argentina, and 
that none should, without further 
evidence than that so far available, be 
attributed to geologica] antiquity.

on the southern oontiDBnt does not 
withstand seandiing criticism. The 
excavations, with one or two excep- 
tions, were made by untutored men, 
who took no care to ascertain the ex- 
act conditions, and in numerous in- 
stances the specimens collected re- 
mained for years unnoticed. The 
burnt days which were attributed to 
human activities are shown to have 
no necessary connection with man. 
Stone implements regarded as exceed- 
ingly primitive and ancient present 
no real claims toantiquity. As to tiia 
human skeletal remains, it appears 
that partial mineralliation of bones 
has been given undue wei^t; and 
that defective or artificially defonnad 
crania have been mistaken for nor- 
mal and ancestral forms. On the 
whole, the conclusion is Inevftable 
that thus far no specimen has been 
found which oould well be accepted 
as representing any geologically an- 
cient form of man in South America, 
or any other race than the Indian. 
The monograph ends with a complete 
bibliography of the subject.

This paper gives in brief form the 
main results of the writer's ohserva- 
tloDS on his reoent trip to Siberia and 
Mongolia. The most Important part 
of these observations xelatea to the 
finding, over extensive areas In east- 
ern Asia, of renmaats of a type of 
people who, In practically every 
respect, are identical physically with 
the Amerlcaa Indian. Bssides the 
physical, there were also noticed 
many mental and ethnologic reaem- 
blanoes between the people met with 
In this part of Asia and the American 
aborigines. The paper points, finally, 
tofhegreat field forexplontion offered 
by eastem Asia.

A brief account of the discovery of a

discovery extends the known distri- 
botion of this important group of 
quadmpeda and furnishes further 
evidence of milder climatic conditions 
in Alaska during at lesst a i>art of the 
Pleistocene, and favors the theory of 
an Asiatic-Alaskan land connection 
during that period.

Its probable migration in Pleistocene

gested that the speciee here described, 
represented by a specimen from a 
Cumberland, Maryland, cave deposit, 
found its way from some locality in 
Asia across a then existing land con- 
nection between Asia and Alaska, 
thence migrating directly to the east-
