President Lyndon B. Johnson cpeaking at ceremonies dedicating the 
Museum of History and Technology. 


Museum of History and Technology 

On October 25, 1963, the General Services Administration advised 
the contractor that all remaining areas and systems of the Museum of 
History and Technology not previously accepted ^Yere, with certain 
exceptions, accepted effective August 30, 1963. 

On January 22, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson dedicated the 
building at ceremonies attended by Ambassadors, Ministers, Members 
of the Supreme Court, Members of the Senate, Members of the House 
of Representatives, other high ranking officials and important donors 
and other friends of the Smithsonian Institution. 

After introductory remarks by Leonard Carmichael, Secretary of 
the Smithsonian Institution, the audience was addressed, in the 
order of events, by Chancellor of the Smithsonian Institution Earl 
Warren, Chief Justice of the United States; by Senator Clinton P. 
Anderson, United States Senator from New Mexico, Regent of the 
Smithsonian Institution and Chairman of the Joint Congressional 
Committee on Construction of a Building for a Museum of History

and Technology for the Smithsonian Institution; and by tlie Pres- 
ident of the United States. Music was provided by the United States 
Marine Band, Lieutenant Colonel Albert Sclioepper. Director, 

After the ceremonies the guests viewed the exhibits in ten halls 
installed for the opening. 

The building was opened to the public at 9 :00 a.m., January 23. 

On the first Sunday after the opening more than 57,000 persons 
visited the building, causing traffic jams of substantial size. By June 
30, 1964, a total of 2,510,672 persons had visited the building. 

The opening of the building and its initial exhibits has focused the 
attention of historians, museum professionals, scholars, writers and 
many others on the scholarly competence of the curators and upon the 
importance of the Smithsonian collections in recording and interpret- 
ing history and traditions. Interviews have been taped, and the build- 
ing and its exhibits have been filmed for world-wide distribution by 
the USIA and the Voice of America. Unprecedented requests have 
been received from universities for joint programs in American 
studies, and the history of science and technology. Architects and 
museum directors from all sections of the United States and the world 
have visited the Museum to inspect the building, to examine the pro- 
grams and collections, and to obtain advice on the establishment, con- 
struction, and improvement of museums. 

Museum of Natural History 

The contract for construction of the west wing of the natural history 
building, including the last stage of renovation of the original build- 
ing, was signed in August 1963 and excavation for the wing was 
begun in November. The foundations were laid and the superstruc- 
ture erected at a rapid rate, and by the end of the fiscal year most 
of the granite facing was in place. MeauAvhile, renovation of the 
original building was commenced. 

Funds Allotted 

From the funds appropriated by the Congress to carry on the opera- 
tions of the Smithsonian Institution and its bureaus during the fiscal 
year 1964, the sum of $5,587,000 was obligated by the United States 
National Museum for the preservation, increase, and study of the 
national collections of anthropological, zoological, botanical, and geo- 
logical materials, as well as materials illustrative of engineering, 
technology, industry, graphic arts, and history. (This amount in- 
cludes sums expended for the program of exhibits modernization.)

A signilicant milestone in the history of the exhibits program at the 
Smithsonian Institution Avas passed when exhibition halls on the first 
and second floors of the jNIuseum of History and Technology were 
presented to the public on January 23, 1964. Totaling more than 
75,000 square feet of instructive displays, these areas include the fol- 
lowing halls or portions thereof : 

Flag Hall 

First Ladies 

Everyday Life in the American Past 

American Costume 

Farm Machinery 

Light Machinery 




Heavy Machinery (part) 

Also placed on display were the Greenough statue of George AVash- 
ington, flanked by eight cases of outstanding national treasures; a 
centrally located Foucault pendulum; and a preview of future ex- 


liibits, in which are presented examples of displays to be placed in 
halls to be opened in the future. The halls and exhibits on vie^v 
at the opening had required less than eight months to install, and the 
building was opened to the public in less than five months after its 
substantial completion by the contractor. This achievement was the 
result of nearly eight years of advanced planning and design of ex- 
hibition halls, followed by the production of innumerable individual 
displays, some of which had been temporarily exhibited in the Arts 
and Industries building prior to being moved to the new museum. It 
could not have been accomplished without the cooperation of many 
individuals on the curatorial staff, in the office of exhibits and the 
buildings management division, and in the employ of private con- 
tractors — including subject matter specialists who planned and tech- 
nically supervised development of the displays ; specialists in exhibits 
design, production, and installation; as well as model makers, plastics 
technicians, painters, electricians, and laborers. Among those in charge 
of this operation, and presently engaged in the task of installing the re- 
maining halls of the museum are assistant director John C. Ewers, who 
coordinates the varied exhibits activities of this museum with the able 
assistance of John IS^. Edy in planning the physical movement of 
materials: Benjamin W. Lawless, who supervises the design, produc- 
tion, and installation of exhibits, aided by Eobert "Widder in design, 
Bela S. Bory and William Clark in production, Eobert Klinger in 
the model shop, Stanley Santoroski in supervision of installation, and 
Carroll Lusk as lighting specialist; George Weiner, who edits the 
curators' drafts of exhibits scripts, with the assistance of Constance 
INIinkin and Edna Wright. The timely assistance of buildings man- 
ager Andrew F. Michaels and his staff', of John E. Cudd, liaison 
architect, and of George Watson, skilled specialist in the renovation 
and installation of period interiors, contributed substantially to the 
success of this program. 

Since the opening of the new museum the installation of additional 
halls has progressed. The hall of historic Americans was opened 
to the public in June, and five other halls will be installed and opened 
during the four months following June 30, 1964. 

John E. Anglim, exhibits chief, continued in charge of the planning 
and preparation of all exhibits, and, Avith the assistance of Gilbert 
Wright, directly supervised the operation of the exhibits laboratory in 
the Museum of Natural History. Julius Tretick supervised the pro- 
duction and installation of exhibits in that museum. Substantial por- 
tions of the halls dealing with cultures of Asia and Africa and with 
comparative osteology were opened to the public in June, and ]n-ogress 
was made on five other halls in that JNIuseum. 


Director T. Dale Stewart continued to serve as chairman of the 
committee coordinating the exhibits modernization program in natural 
history, and assistant director Kichard S. Cowan coordinated the work 
of curators and exhibits personnel in the development of natural his- 
tory exhibits. To the advancement of this work substantial contribu- 
tions were made by John H. Morrissey, project review chief, archi- 
tectural branch of the Public Buildings Service, General Services Ad- 
ministration, and by Joseph F. Cromwell, Jr., Mrs. Gertrude Hein, 
and Albert Brigeda, design architects of that agency. 


Colorful new exhibits of objects from the Near East, Japan, Korea, 
China, and North and West Africa were first placed on public view 
when the west portion of the hall of cultures of Africa and Asia 
was informally opened in late June. Among the exhibits interpreting 
the traditional cultures of the Asian peoples are a life-size group 
portraying an episode from a Chinese opera, Avith accompanying push- 
button sound recording, a display of objects illustrating the evolution 
of farming in Japan, and a unit on the daily and religious life in Tibet. 
The Republic of Korea has loaned one of its national art treasures, 
a cast-iron figure of Buddha from the Koryo dynasty ( A.D. 935-1392) , 
which is presented in a temple setting with a paneled screen of red silk 
brocade. North and West African cultures present many striking- 
works of art from peoples whose accomplishments have had a profound 
influence upon modem art in Europe and America. One of the most 
dramatic displays is a diorama portraying the smelting of iron ore in 
primitive furnaces and the fashioning of iron tools by tribesmen from 
the Mandara Mountain region of northern Cameroon. This group 
was created by exhibits specialists John Weaver, Robert Caffrey, and 
Peter De Anna. The exhibits in this hall were planned and specified by 
associate curators of ethnology Gordon D. Gibson and Eugene I. Knez. 
The hall design was the work of exhibits designer Dorothy Guthrie 
and the graphic design of individual units was the work of exhibits 
designer Lucius Lomax. 

The completely renovated life-size group portraying Indian quarry- 
ing operations and making of stone artifacts at the Piney Branch site 
within the present boundaries of the District of Columbia some 500 
3'ears ago was opened to the public in the hall of Nortli American 
archeology, and another group illustrating Indian copper mining in 
present Michigan was nearing completion at year's end. Contract 
construction in the new hall of Old World archeology was virtually 
completed at year's end. This hall was designed by exhibits designer 


RoUand O. Hower under the scientific supervision of associate curator 
Gus Van Beek. 

The contractor's work in the new hall of physical anthropology also 
was nearing completion at the end of June. About half of the exhibit 
units for this hall have been designed by exhibits designer Joseph 
Shannon, who also served as architectural designer for the hall. The 
contents of the exhibits have been specified by T. Dale Stewart, di- 
rector of the Museum of Natural History and Lawrence Angel, 
curator-in-charge of the division of physical anthropology. 

During the spring of 1964, Dr. Knez supervised the installation of 
41 outstanding examples of Chinese, Buddhist, and Hindu stone sculp- 
ture, bronze and otlier items from China, India, Cambodia, and Java. 
Dr. Van Beek worked with the Department of State and the Smith- 
sonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service on arrangements for 
loan of the Dead Sea Scrolls and associated materials from the govern- 
ment of Jordan. In May, during his overseas detail, he conferred with 
officials of the Jordanian government, the U.S. Embassy, and the 
Palestine Archaeological Museum, and selected specimens and photo- 
graphs for use in the exhibition, which is scheduled to be opened in the 
Museum of Natural History in March 1965. Thereafter it will circu- 
late for six months among other museums in the United States by the 
Traveling Exhibition Service. 


At the end of June the exhibits in the east half of the hall of 
osteology, comprising the sections on mamnuils and birds, were in- 
formally opened to the public. The skeletons in this exhibition 
range in size from one of the gray whale to those of small birds. 
Skeletal materials are supplemented by graphic portrayals of the ap- 
pearance in the flesh of the particular examples displayed. One in- 
teresting display compares the skeleton of man with those of other 
primates. Another points out the bony structures, differences in which 
serve as the bases for scientific classification of birds. The sections of 
this hall devoted to reptiles, amphibians, and fishes are in process of 
preparation and installation. Planning of the exhibits in this hall 
has been coordinated by curator David H. Johnson, with the cooper- 
ation of the staff members of all the vertebrate divisions of tliis de- 
partment. Hall design was by Anthony DiStefano and Rolland O. 
Hower, and graphic design by exhibits designer Morris M. Pearson. 

On February 19, 1964, a temporary exhibition entitled "Return to 
the Sea" was opened on the mezzanine of the liall of life in the sea. 
This display, a joint effort of the Inleragency Committee on Ocean- 
ography of the Government and the Smithsonian Institution, has as 


its theme the renewal of interest in oceanography and the marine en- 
vironment. Associate curator Charles Cntress and Mr. Kjell Sandved 
spent approximately two months in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dillon Beach, 
Calif., and at Friday Harbor, Wash., obtaining- photographs and well- 
presen'ed specimens of animals of which models will be made for 
display in additional permanent exhibits in this hall. 

Preparation of models and the securing of specimens for the hall 
of cold-blooded vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, and reptiles) was con- 
tinued during the year, and the installation of groups in this hall was 
begun. Curator Leonard P. Schultz who is coordinating the planning 
of exhibits for this hall, and Alfred Strohlein spent several days in the 
vicinity of Seattle, Wasli., during October collecting red salmon and 
background materials for the group on salmon spawning. Exhibits 
designer Barbara Craig prepared the architectural layout for this hall, 
and graphic design is by Joseph Shannon. 

Staff members of the department cooperated with the department of 
paleobiology, the Oceanographic Sorting Center, the National Zoologi- 
cal Park, and the Canal Zone Biological Area in preparing a special 
exhibition for presentation in the foyer of the Natural History Mu- 
seum at the time of the 16th International Congress of Zoology, held 
in Washington, August 20-27, 1963. These displays illustrated facets 
of the history of zoological research at the Smithsonian Institution, 
the research programs currently in progress, and international co- 
operation in the study of animal life. 


Planning for the hall of plant life has continued at an accelerated 
rate since January 1964, at which time was established a planning com- 
mittee consisting of Assistant Director Kichard S. Cowan, chairman, 
and curators M. E. Hale, Jr., David Lellinger, T. E. Soderstrom, 
Stanwyn G. Shetler, Dan Nicolson, and Kichard H. Eyde. This 
group met regularly Avith exhibits designer Rolland O. Hower to 
develop specific plans for the exhibits. Study sites from which to 
obtain data for construction of some of the habitat groups were 
selected in the eastern United States, and preparation of botanical 
models for use in tlie exhibits in this hall is in progress. 


The fourth and last of the remarkable series of mural paintings in 
the hall of the age of mammals in North America, representing land 
life during epochs of Tertiary time, was completed by artist Jay H. 
Matternes. This mural depicts a Pliocene mammalian assemblage. 


Associate curator Clayton E. Kay initiated preliminary planning 
of displays in the hall to be devoted to life of the Pleistocene, the geo- 
logic epoch immediately preceding the present, in consultations with 
members of the exihibit staff. Much of the time of the laboratory 
staff has been devoted to repairing and remounting skeletons of the 
various larger Pleistocene mammals that were previously exhibited, 
and in restoring new skeletal remains for presentation in this hall. 

Temporary exhibits, dealing with current research programs of staff 
members, were prepared by the invertebrate paleontology staff' and 
U.S. Geological Survey paleontologists for the Intenational Zoologi- 
cal Congress in the summer of 1963, and were sent to New York City 
for display at the national meetings of the Geological Society of 
America and he Paleontological Society in November. 

Mineral Sciences 

Planning and design of the new physical geology and meteorite ex- 
hibits was completed in preparation for the start of construction, which 
is to provide additional space for the gem exhibits. The physical 
geology exhibit will interpret the nature and properties of materials 
composing the earth; the distribution of these materials throughout 
the globe; the processes by which they are formed, altered, trans- 
ported, and distorted; and the nature and development of the land- 
scape. The new hall has been planned by curator George S. Switzer 
and associate curators Paul E. Desautels and Edward P. Henderson. 
The hall layout has been prepared by exhibits designer Dorothy 

Science and Technology 

Four halls of tlie Department of Science and Technology in the 
east portion of the first floor were open when the interior of the 
Museum of History and Technology first was revealed to the public. 

By means of a few choice full-scale vehicles and an extended series 
of accurately and precisely executed scale models the railroad hall 
interprets the history of street railways as well as railroads. The 
giant 280-ton Pacific-type steam locomotive No. 1401, largest and one 
of tlie most impressive three-dimensional specimens in the museum, 
stands near the row of east windows through wliich it may be viewed 
from outside the buikling at night as well as by daylight. It contrasts 
8hur))ly with the boiler from the little "Stourbridge Eion" brought 
fi'oni Euglimd in 1S21) to become the first steam lo('om<)ti\e to run on 
an American railroad built for conunercial use, and with the l)onne(- 
stacked, wood-Inirning locomotive "Pioneer'' built in 1851 by Seth 



Wilmarth for the Cumberland Valley Railroad in Pennsylvania. A 
cut-away scale model of a diesel-electric locomotive shows a type that 
has supplanted the steam locomotive on American railroads in recent 
years. A full-scale cable car used in Seattle, Wash., in the late 19th 
century stands on a section of narrow-gauge track in an elevated posi- 
tion so visitors can see the underground construction required for its 
operation. Basic developments in street cars, locomotives, and rail- 
road cars are illustrated by nearly 80 models, most of them built to the 

Brick-paved railroad hall has picture window (right) facing 12th Street. 

same scale, which faithfully portray notable mechanical advances and 
the contributions of famous designers. Also displayed are an out- 
standing collection of rail samples, and examples of railway safety 
devices. The hall was planned by associate curator John H. White, 
Jr., in collaboration with exhibits designers James Mahoney, Virginia 
Mahoney, and Deborah Bretzfelder. 

The adjacent vehicle hall traces the development of various types 
of road vehicles in the United States from the 18th century to the 
present day. Among the outstanding horse-drawn vehicles on dis- 
play are two variations of the famous stage coach built by the Abbot, 
Downing Company of Concord, N.H., and widely used in the East and 


West beyond the lines of the early railroads; the finely constructed 
Lawrence family coach built by Thomas Goddard of Boston in 1851 ; 
and a city omnibus built by E. M. Miller of Quincy, 111. The auto- 
mobiles illustrate the rapid evolution of automobile design and manu- 
facture from the 1890's. Along- ^Yith the pioneer Balzer and Haynes 
motor wagons, appear the famous Winton mile-a-minute racer of 1902, 
the Winton in which Dr. H. J^elson Jackson drove the first transcon- 
tinental motor trip in 1903, and a sturdy Mack Bulldog truck. Mu- 
seum specialist Donald Berkebile planned the exhibits in this hall 
with assistance in layout from exhibits designer Eiddick Vann. 

The hall of tools illustrates the history and development of machine 
tools. Introductory exhibits display hand tools with which men per- 
formed laboriously tasks later accomplished with much greater speed 
and precision by machine. A short sound film in color describes the 
five basic machining operations — planing, milling, drilling and boring, 
turning, and grinding. A full-scale reproduction of Thomas Blanch- 
ard's gunstock lathe of 1822 introduces a series of historic special- 
purpose machines which, in their capacity for producing large num- 
bers of interchangeable parts, played important roles in contributing 
to increased American productivity and to a higher standard of living. 
The attainment of greater precision in measurement, important to the 
development of machine tools, is brought out in a series of exhibits 
tracing the history of measurement from the Roman cubit to modern 
times. An outstanding feature of this hall is a reconstructed full- 
size machine shop of about 1855 equipped with some of the oldest 
machine tools in the collection. Six machines, restored to operat- 
ing condition, are placed in the surroundings in which they would 
have been used. They are operated by a docent at designated times 
to demonstrate their functions to museum visitors. Silvio A. Bedini, 
curator of civil engineering, and his predecessor, Eugene S. Ferguson, 
selected the machines and planned the case exhibits in this hall with 
the cooperation of exhibits designers Bright Springman, Harrv Hart, 
and John Clendening. William Henson installed the machines and 
placed them in operating condition. 

A major portion of the hall of light machineiy illustrates the 
evolution of timekeeping. The introductoiy exhibit, through a re- 
volving globe bearing small sundials on its surface, demonstrates the 
basic importance of the daily cycle of the earth's rotation as the 
foundation of man's timekeeping systems. The exhibits illustrate the 
gradual development of timekeeping from early sundials, sandglasses, 
and waterclocks to the most precise modern electronic clocks. His- 
toric examples of European and American-made clocks and watches 
and a inunbcr of (Milarged osca])cni(Mit models are included. In the 

Demonstrations are con- 
ducted in pre-1855 ma- 
chine shop in hall of tools. 



center of the hall is a reconstruction of a Renaissance clock tower, the 
four sides of which will display a sun dial, and civil, astronomical, and 
automaton dials actuated by an American tower clock of 1786. Both 
the sun dial and civil-time dials have been installed, the former by 
museum specialist Dorothy Briggs and the latter by its maker, 
Thwaites and Reed of London, England. Nearby is a reconstructed 
chronometer-maker's shop of 1830, complete with the tools used by 
its proprietor in manufacturing these precise instruments. The ex- 
hibits in other sections of this hall show^ machines derived from the 
skills developed by clock and instrument makers. One series traces

the development of the phonograph from Thonuis Edison's original 
invention and the work of Alexander Graham Bell's Yolta Laboratory 
through the more recent talking machines. Exliibits on the evolution 
of the tyi)ewriter include early original machines and i)atent models. 
Still other displays interpret the iiistory of locks from early times to 
the present, showing how new materials and more subtle engineering 
concepts led to the perfection of moi-e secure locking devices. Ex- 
hibits in this hall were i)lanned by associate curator Edwin A. Hattison 
in cooperation with hall designer Bright Springnian and exhibits 
designer Barbara Bowes. 

EXinBITS 19 

At the close of the year installation of exhibits in the hall of civil 
engineering, adjoining the railroad hall, were nearing completion and 
plans were made for an early July opening. An interpretation of 
the story of bridge and tunnel building through the ages shows 
how the use of new materials enabled bridge builders to construct 
longer spans and illustrates through scale models many of the classic 
bridges of history. The tunnels section features a series of cutaway 
scale models that illustrates the development of methods in both soft- 
ground and hard-rock tunneling and depicts men constructing some 
of the major tunnels in which new drilling methods and mechanisms 
were employed. Associate curator Robert M. Vogel prepared the 
technical specifications for this hall and the exhibits layout and design 
are the work of exhibits designers John Brown and Harry Hart. 

Considerable progress also was made in the installation of exhibits 
in the hall of heavy machinery. Those at the west end of this hall, 
opened to the public in January, interpret the early development of 
the steam engine, and include a reconstruction of an early Watt rota- 
tive engine. The series on refrigeration and the diesel engine are to 
be opened in conjunction Avith the adjoining civil engineering hall in 
July 1964:. 

All free-standing exhibition cases have been installed in the Ameri- 
can merchant marine hall, and a considerable number of the scale 
models of historic types of vessels from the museum's outstanding 
watercraft collection have been placed in them by exhibits specialist 
James A. Knowles, Jr., under the supervision of curator of transporta- 
tion Howard I. Chapelle. 

A temporary exhibition of communications satellites, being installed 
in the northeast portion of the hall of electricity, will be available to 
the public in July. An item in this exhibit is the back-up satellite for 
Telstar I — presented to the museum on July 10, 1963, the first anniver- 
sary of its launching. Contract installation of cases for permanent 
exhibits in the southwest portion of this hall, which Avill interpret 
current electricity, neared completion at year's end. These exhibits 
have been planned by associate curator of electricity Bernard S. Finn. 
Exhibits designer Nadya Kayaloff has nearly completed the display 

In the halls of pharmacy, medicine, and dentistry at the extreme 
west end of the first floor, installation of an 1890 period drugstore, 
of period interiors depicting a portion of a room in the Massachusetts 
General Hospital, and a midwestern dentist's office are nearing com- 
pletion. The Old AVorld apothecary shop formerly on view in the 
Arts and Industries building is to be installed in the new hall of 
pharmacy. Two new exhibits destined for exhibition in the new 
museum were placed on temporary display in the Arts and Industries 


building: A diorama depicting Dr. Philip S. Physick excising a 
large paratoid gland tumor in the circular room of the Pennsylvania 
Hospital in 1805, long before the discovery of anesthesia; and an 
enlarged model of the human ear, donated by the Lambert Institute 
of Otology of New York City. Curator of medical sciences Sami K. 
Hamarneh, assisted by Dr. Alfred E. Henderson, consultant, are 
completing exhibit plans for the medical science exhibits in coopera- 
tion with exhibits designer, John Clendening. 

The Foucault pendulum, prepared by the California Institute of 
Technology and exhibited in the central rotunda of the new museum, 
has fascinated visitors since the opening of the building. The division 
of physical sciences, which is in charge of this exhibit, has been making 
careful studies of its operation and of the problem of interpreting it 
to the public. A large graphic explanation planned by curator Walter 
F. Cannon, is being produced by the exhibits laboratory. Develop- 
ment of exliibits for the hall of physical sciences progressed with the 
completion of a layout plan for the mathematics section and the pro- 
duction of all but two units in the section of astronomy. 

Arts and Manufactures 

The farm machinery hall, on view when the new building opened in 
January, shows through displays of original objects and accurate scale 
models how the invention and use of labor-saving machines played a 
major role in the rapid expansion of American agriculture since the 
early 19th century. The earlier hand-wielded and horse-drawn 
implements are contrasted with later self-propelled machines which 
performed the same basic tasks of plowing, planting, cultivating, and 
harvesting food crops. The horse-drawn combine in the center of this 
hall represents an early peak in mechanization. This machine, the 
first built by Benjamin Holt at Stockton, Calif., in 1886, performed 
all the harvesting and threshing tasks while moving through the wheat 
fields of a western bonanza farm. A feature display in the series on 
the development of the plow is Thomas Jefferson's plan for a more 
efficient moldboard which any farmer of his time could make with his 
own tools and fit to his plow. John Deere's "steel" plow is shown, as 
are scale models of the McCormick and Hussey reapers of the 1880's. 

On view in another section of the hall is the first portable steam 
engine made by J. I. Case, which produced about 8 horsepower for 
driving threshers and sawmills by belt. The exhibits in this liall were 
planned by associate curator Edward C. Kendall in coo])erati()n with 
exhibits designer Kiddick "\''ann. The hnnian lignres wliich hel]) to 
establish scale and add interest to the miniature models of ivaj)ers were 
executed by exhibits technician Susan Wallace. 


Installation of exhibits in the new hall of graphic arts was begun 
in spring of 196J: in anticipation of a fall opening of this hall, which 
will explain the processes and present outstanding examples of works 
created and produced by hand and by photomechanical processes. 
These exhibits have been planned by curator Jacob Kainen and asso- 
ciate curator Fuller O. Griffith in cooperation with exhibits designer 
Nadya Kayaloif . Temporary exhibits of prints and photographs will 
continue to be displayed in the Arts and Industries and the Smith- 
sonian buildings until completion of the graphic arts salon in the new 
museum. Nine special exhibits in graphic arts and seven featuring 
the work of outstanding contemporary photographers were shown 
during the year :

Installation of exhibits in the hall of glass was begun in spring of 
1964 in preparation for opening the hall the following fall. Develop- 
ment of this hall is under the technical direction of curator Paul V. 
Gardner and assistant curator J. Jefferson Miller II of the division of 
ceramics and glass. The hall Avas designed by Dorothy Guthrie, and 
the graphics design is being completed by exhibits designer Barbara 

The Ninth International Exhibition of Ceramic Art, sponsored by 
the Kiln Club of Washington, was held in the Natural History Mu- 
seum September 8 through October 11, 1963. On view were 550 pieces 
of pottery, the work of ceramic artists from 39 foreign countries and 
the United States. Five pieces, including two award winners from 
the exhibition, were given to the division of ceramics and o-lass. 



Among the displays in the previe^v of future exhibits in the tem- 
porary exhibits gallery on the first floor of the new museum is an 
early American handloom, built by a pioneer settler of western Penn- 
sylvania about 1800, which is used for weekly demonstrations of 
weaving by associate curator of textiles Rita Adrosko. 

A reproduction of the figure-8 stellerator developed by Dr. Lyman 
Spitzer of Princeton University was placed on exhibition in the 
Constitution Avenue window area on the first floor of the new museum. 
Symbolic of the research involving the generation of temperatures in 
excess of 100 million degrees centigrade, the stellerator provides an 
interesting contrast with the 19th-century farm machines which may 
be seen through the display window in the adjoining hall of farm

Civil History 

Three halls dealing with civil history were on public view when the 
new museum opened in January, and a fourth was formally opened 
to the public in June. 

The hall of everyday life in the American past, comprising the 
largest exhibition gallery in the museum, displays the material evi- 
dences of domestic life in America before 1900. The furnishings, 
utensils, decorative arts and other objects illustrating aspects of the 
cultural life of the country are presented in a series of cases, period 
rooms, and platform groupings progressing chronologically from an 
initial series of displays devoted to the European backgrounds of early 
settlement groups to the interior of a confectioner's shop in George- 
town, D.C., at the turn of the 20th century. Among the outstanding- 
exhibits in the first series are a reproduction of a room from an 18th- 
century Spanish New Mexican adobe home and objects of religious art 
from the Franciscan missions of the Southwest. The English colonies 
of the eastern seaboard are represented by displays ranging from arti- 
facts obtained archeologically to fine furniture, pewter, and silver. 
Period rooms in this portion of the hall include a chamber from a 
17th-century Massachusetts house and mid-18th-century parlors from 
Virginia and Massachusetts. An entire log house from Mill Creek 
Hundred, Del., dating from about 1740, shows both the exterior and 
interior construction and the furnishings of this house. Exhibits in 
the 19tli-century section of this hall portray the contrasts and transi- 
tions from a handicraft to an industrial society through such objects 
as Federal-period silver and furniture, rural pottery, folk arts, and 
industrially-made decorations. Exhibits of children's games and toys 
are especially appealing to visitors of all ages. The starkly simple 
furnisliings of the Shaker sect appear in a display of furniture from 
the collection of Dr. J. J. G. McCue. This hall was planned and 
installed under the direction of curator C. Malcolm Watkins, assisted 
by associate curators Roclris Roth and John N. Pearce. It was de- 
signed by exhibits chief John E. Angiim, with the assistance of 
exhibits designer Deborah Bretzf elder. Period rooms and the log 
house were executed by George H. Watson and his stall' of restoration 
specialists with the professional assistance of Mrs. E. Boyd, curator 
of Spanish colonial art. Museum of New Mexico, and architects Eobert 
L. Raley of Newark, Del., and Robert E. Plettenberg of Santa Fe, 
N. Mex. 

The new First Ladies hall provides a more appealing medium for 
continuing the tradition of exhibiting the dresses worn by the wife or 
official hostess of each president of the United States. These dresses 
show the chano-es in American costume from tlie 18th-centurv stvle 


Hall of American costume contains examples of four centuries of dress, 
with particular emphasis on styles of the 18th and 19th centuries. 

worn by Martha Washington to the sunple lines and elegant fabrics 
of more recent First Ladies. Three dresses were presented to the pub- 
lic for the first time: the handsome Empire gown worn by Mrs. James 
Madison, on loan from the William Rockliill Nelson Gallery in Kansas 
City, Mo. ; the garnet velvet gown worn by Rose Cleveland, sister of 
President Cleveland and hostess for the first two years of his first 
administration ; and a black silk dress of Mrs. Grover Cleveland. The 
dresses are displayed upon mannequins in a series of eight room set- 
tings, each appropriately finished and furnished to indicate the periods 
and environments in which the dresses were worn. Two rooms repro- 
duce those in the house at 100 High Street in Philadelphia, where 
President and Mrs. Washington lived before the White House was 
built, and display furniture and fixtures owned and used by them. 
The other room settings combine architectural details from the White 
House, including four original White House mantels and the 1902 
paneling from the East Room, with furniture and accessories used 
both in the White House and in Presidential family homes. Espe- 
cially interesting are the set of gold furniture purchased for use in 
the Blue Room of the White House in 1859 and used until the admin- 
istration of Frtmklin D. Roosevelt, and the elaborate gold piano used 
in the East Room from Theodore RooscAelt's administration to that of 
Franklin D. Roosevelt. Small cases in this hall contain personal be- 



longings of the First Ladies and colorful Presidential cliina. A dio- 
rama portrays tlie Oval Drawing Room in tlie White House as it 
looked in 1814 after it was redecorated by Dolley Madison and Ben- 
jamin Latrobe. This hall was developed by associate curator Mar- 
garet Brown Klapthor in cooperation with exhibits chief Benjamin 
W. Lawless. 

The new hall of American costume adequately presents for the first 
time the museum's rich and extensive collection of men's, w^omen's 
and children's clothing of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. It in- 
cludes accessories of dress such as shoes, hats, handkerchiefs, parasols, 
and gloves and such decorative accessories as fans, embroidered and 
beaded purses, and many fine examples of period jewelry. Many of 
the clothing items are exhibited on mannequins which portray the hair 

Empire style of dress, 1800-1830, displayed in hall of American cos- 



dress appropriate to the costumes, and some are shown in groupings in 
partial room settings. Eare articles of everyday wear and early 
underclothing are included. Among the outstanding materials pre- 
sented in this graphic review of four centuries of American dress are 
18th-century wraps, a freedom suit given to a young man who had 
completed his apprenticeship to a cabinetmaker, an 18th-century 
wedding gown of blue silk, children's clothing of the period 1800 to 
1830, a woman's exercise suit of the mid-19th century illustrating dress 
reform of the period, a dressmaker's salon of the 1880's, and several 
knee-leng-th "flapper" dresses of the decade of the 1920*s. Illustrations 
of various types of clothing selected from paintings and engravings 
dealing with the history of costume supplement the original specimens 
on display. The entire hall has been one of great interest for histori- 
ans, artists, and students of American style and taste. The exhibits 
were planned and installed under the direction of associate curator 
Anne W. Murray. Hall design was by exhibits designer Robert M. 
Widder; graphics design by exhibits designers Judith Borgogni, 
Virginia Mahoney, and Deborah Bretzfelder. 

The hall of historic Americans, opened to the public on June 30, is 
unlike other museum presentations in the United States. A portion 
of the hall is devoted to a capsule history of American political cam- 
paign techniques, tracing their development from the era of genteel 
"parlor politics" to the modern political use of the mass media of com- 
munications. A dramatic political parade illustrates the development 
of Presidential campaigning between 1840 and 1930. Papier-mache 
marchers carry authentic political banners, pennants, and torclilights, 
and wear campaign clothing and badges. In association with the 
parade are exhibited a log cabin such as might have been erected as a 
Whig party headquarters during the "Log Cabin and Hard Cider" 
campaign of 1840, a front porch similar to those used by candidates 
during the McKinley and Plardink ears, and a rear platfoi'm of a 
railroad observation car representing the "whistle stop" period of 
campaigning. An adjoining area, illustrating the important relation- 
ship between politics and the press, radio, and television, includes 
microphones used by Franklin D. Roosevelt in delivering liis historic 
radio fireside chats and by Dwight D. Eisenhower during the 1952 
campaign. Other exhibitions in this hall interpret tlie contributions 
to American histor^^ of certain major institutions and groups of 
people. Personal memorabilia suggest the roles of Congress and the 
Supreme Court, scholars, and "men of enterprise." A former TTnited 
States Senate subway car is exhibited, while one of Robert C. God- 
dard's early experimental rockets indicates (he impact of scientific 
scholarship upon American life. The intluence of "Americans 
abroad" is suggested by an exhibition of gifts received by eminent 



Flapper styles, 1920-1930, exhibited in the hall of American costume. 


Americans from foreign leaclers, including a Sicilian cart given to 
General George C. Marshall in gratitude for American aid to Italy 
during the years after World War II. Several exhibits display 
memorabilia of distinguished families and individuals — the Wash- 
ington and Adams families, Ulysses S. Grant, and Abraham Lincoln. 
In one of these a newly sculptured figure of Abraham Lincoln, bear- 
ing the business suit which he wore on the day of his assassination, 
stands in a setting which closely resembles that shown in several 
Mathew Brady photographs of the President. Planning and instal- 
lation of the exhibits in this hall were under the direction of curator 
Wilcomb S. Washburn, assisted by associate curator Keith E. Melder 
and assistant curator Herbert R. Collins in association with exhibits 
designer Robert Widder. 

At the west end of the west corridor on the second floor of the new 
museum the heroic statue of George Washington by Horatio Green- 
ough was in place on opening day, flanked by eight cases containing 
some of the great national treasures in the musemii's collections, to be 
displayed later in the series of halls interpreting the growth of the 
United States in the area adjoining the statue. These historic objects 
include George Washington's uniform, the portable writing desk of 
Thomas Jefferson, Joseph Henry's electromagnet, the model of the 
cotton gin built by Eli Whitney, Isaac Singer's first patent model of the 
vertical-needle sewing machine, the field compass used by William 
Clark, Lewis Evans' General Map of the Middle British Colonies in 
America^ and George Catlin's brushes and palette, and his oil painting 
of his Indian hero, Four Bears, second chief of the Mandans. 

Marked progress was made in the preparation of the hall of philately 
and postal history, scheduled for opening in September 1964. During 
March a Stickney rotary printing press of 1914, a Stickney coiling 
machine of 1920, and related stamp production equipment were trans- 
ported to the museum and moved into position in the stamp production 
alcove of this hall by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Frames 
and panels illustrating the postal history of the District of Columbia 
and a special exhibition of the Emma Batchelor airmail collection were 
installed. The series of exhibits on the history of the world's posts were 
produced, cases for models of vehicles used to transport the mails and 
for postage meter and canceling machines were delivered to the hall, 
and the refinishing of the pull-out frames which will exhibit by country 
the systematic national postage stamp collection was completed. This 
hall has been planned by curator Carl H. Scheele with the assistance 
of museum technician Francis E. Welch in collaboration with' exhibits 
designer John Clendening. 

From June 5 through July 5, 1903, an exhibition of stamps of the 
world, issued in support of the Freedom from Hunger Campaign, was 


displayed in the rotunda of the Arts and Industries building with the 
cooperation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United 
Nations and the Crown Agents. Postmaster General J. Edward Day 
addressed the visitors who attended the opening of this exhibition. 
A comprehensive exhibition of the postage stamps of Israel was held 
during November and December 1963. 

Associate curator of numismatics Elvira Clain-Stefanelli, as a per- 
manent delegate of the United States to the International Federation 
of Medal Editors, prepared a special display of contemporary medals 
produced in the United States during the past five years for the inter- 
national medal exhibit arranged by that federation in The Hague, 
Netherlands. With the assistance of the Medallic Art Company and 
the United States Mint she also prepared a display of contemporary 
United States medals for the hall of monetary history and medallic art. 
A temporary display illustrating the history of the traveler's check, 
including James C. Fargo's announcement of 1891 initiating the issu- 
ance of traveler's checks by the American Express Company, was 
installed in February. On March 27 a special exhibition of original 
mint models and designs for the John F. Kennedy half dollar was 
placed on display through the good offices of the Director of the Mint, 
Miss Eva Adams, and the Superintendent of the Philadelphia Mint, 
Mr. Michael H. Sura. In April a large display of the currencies of the 
Austrian Empire was installed, employing material recently received 
from the Mortimer and Anna Neinken collection. 

Associate curator of musical instruments Cynthia Adams Hoover 
organized a recital in July 1963, given by Mr. and Mrs. Efrim Frucht- 
man of the University of Arizona, who played music for viola da 
gamba and harpsichord, using the museum's restored harpsichord 
made in 1745 by Johannes Daniel Dulcken of Antwerp. In May 1964, 
Miss Sylvia Kemiey, associate professor of music at Bryn Mawr Col- 
lege, presented a lecture-recital, "Paintings, Chronicles, and Stylistic 
Criteria as Guides to the Performance of 15th Century Music." 

Armed Forces History 

The Star-Spangled Banner, the original flag which, during the 
attack of the British fleet on September 13-14, 1814, flew over Fort 
McHenry at Baltimore, Md. and inspired Francis Scott Key to write 
the words of our National Anthem, was installed in the Museum of 
History and Technology when the new building was opened to the 
public in January. Although this most important museum object 
relating to the liistory of the United States had been exhibited in the 
Arts and Industries building ever since it was presented to the Smith- 
sonian Institution in 1912, it is now for the first time displayed at full 


length, undraped, and in a place of honor befitting its importance as 
a national symbol. 

The visitor entering the museum from the mall gains an inspiring 
view of the Star-Spangled Banner hanging on the north wall of the 
3-story central rotunda in an alcove specially lighted to present the 
flag most ejffectively. The flag is displayed over a supporting fabric 
that is large enough to indicate its original dimensions of 30 by 42 
feet and that completely covers the specially designed metal grid 
which holds the flag and its supporting fabric in a vertical position. 
The flag hangs in an atmosphere of filtered air carefully controlled for 
the proper temperature and humidity. The only other exhibit in the 
spacious hall is a small case, to the right of the flag containing a litho- 
graph of the bombardment of Fort McHenry, a British 13-inch bomb 
of the type fired at that time, and a rare early edition of "The Star- 
Spangled Banner." The flag was prepared for exhibition and in- 
stalled under the direction of Edgar M. Howell, curator of military 
history, with the assistance of Grace Rogers Cooper, curator of textiles. 
Miss Doris Bowman, Mrs. Lois Vann, and Miss Maurine Collins of 
the division of textiles assisted in preparing the backing for the flag 
prior to its installation. The setting for the flag was designed by 
Walker Cain of the finn of Steinmann, Cain and ^-Vliite, architects 
for the new musuem. The cased exhibit was designed by Robert 

Development of exhibits for the armed forces history halls has 
occupied the entire professional staff of the department. Installation 
of free-standing cases and other elements in the halls devoted to 
chronological history of the armed forces, to firearms and ordnance, 
and to the display of the Revolutionary War gondola Philadel2yhia was 
inaugurated in the spring of 1964 preparatory to the opening of the 
major portion of this extensive series of exhibits next spring. The 
displays for the chronological series have been designed by exhibits 
designers Fred C. Craig and John W. Brown. 

During the year rigged models of the Union gunboat Garondelet^ the 
Confederate ironclads Virginia and Albemarle^ as well as half models 
of the Kearsarge^ Brooklyn^ San Jacinto^ and Housatonic were lent to 
tlie Department of the Navy for Civil War exhibits at the Truxtun- 
Decatur Museum and the Naval Exhibit Center. German and Jap- 
anese naval uniforms and side arms of World War II were lent for 
an exhibition on the Normandy and Okinawa landings, held at the 
Truxtun-Decatur Musemn. A model of Robert Fulton's Steam Bat- 
tery (1814) was lent to the Peabody Institute of Baltimore for its 
exhibit on Baltimore during the War of 1812, held in conjunction with 
the annual meeting of the Compan}'' of Military Collectors and 


During the Fiscal Year 1964

Mrs. Frank A. Lewis ; two fine kunzites from Brazil, weighing 296.78 
and 336.16 carats, from Robert C. Nelson, Jr. ; four diamonds of rare 
blue and green colors, from Van Cleef and Arpels, Inc. ; and a collec- 
tion of spheres of jade, petrified wood, and other gem materials, from 
Albert R. Cutter. Gems acquired by purchase from the Chamberlain 
fund for the Isaac Lea collection included a 22.35-carat golden 
sapphire and a 24.15-carat cat's eye diopside. 

Five very exceptional gems, all from Brazil, were added to the col- 
lection by exchange: A golden-green beryl weighing 1,363 carats, a 
914:-carat green beryl, a greenish-colored topaz weighing 1,469 carats, 
a 1,362-carat amethyst, and a heart-shaped kunzite weighing 880 
carats. Received from an anonymous donor was the Portuguese dia- 
mond, a very fine step-cut stone weighing 127.01 carats. The Portu- 
guese diamond is the largest cut diamond from Brazil and the 13th 
largest in the world. In the 1920's it was recut to its present shape 
from a 150-carat cushion-shaped stone. Details of its early history 
are unknown, but it is said that it was once owned by the royal family 
of Portugal. 

Twenty-eight meteorites not previously represented in the collec- 
tion were accessioned during the year, out of a total of 83, making this 
the best year in some time. The most important single addition was 
the collection of the late Arthur R. Allen of Trinidad, Colo., con- 
taining 45 meteorites and 636 grams of tektites. Specimens of partic- 
ular interest were the 14 fine oriented individuals of the Pasamonte, 
New Mexico fall (totaling 1.3 kg.) and a Canyon Diablo specimen 
containing a large diamond inclusion. Seven stony meteorites that 
had not been previously known were included: Alamosa, Colo. (1.8 
kg.) ; Blackwell, Okla. (2.4 kg.) ; Georgetown, Colo. (0.68 kgs.) ; 
Mosquero, N. Mex. (1.6 kg.) ; Thatcher, Colo. (2 g.) ; Tobe, Colo. (5.4 
kg.) ; and Mosca, Colo. (6.1 kg.). Outstanding among the donations 
received during the year was a specimen of the widely publicized 
Bogou iron, which was presented by President Maurice Yameogo of 
the Republic of Upper Volta. 


Science and Technology 

In the division of physical sciences an outstanding accession was 
the gift from Vassar College of the large telescope built in 1863, by 
Henry Fitz, one of America's famous telescope makers, and used by 
Maria ISIitchell at Vassar. Preston Bassett lent an 8-sided revolving- 
mirror used by Albert Michelson in his famous determination of the 
velocity of light in 1924. A Collins helium cryostat, from Loyola 
University of 'New Orleans and Arthur D. Little, Inc., and an earlier 
Collins cryogenic expansion machme, from Samuel C. Collins, are 
basic artifacts in the recent development of commercially available 
low-temperature apparatus. 

In the section of chemistry, outstanding accessions relating to the 
element fluorine were a replica of the platinum apparatus for elec- 
trolysis and distillation used by Henry Moissan in his epochal isola- 
tion of fluorine (1886), and a commerical fluorine cell made by the 
Harshaw Company in 1942-43 and given to us by the company. The 
Moissan apparatus was fabricated through the courtesy of the Baker 
Platinum Division of Engelhard Industries, Inc. 

The collection of adding and calculating machines in the section of 
mathematics was notably enriched by the gift of Y6 specimens from 
the Victor Comptometer Corportion. The gift includes several fa- 
mous historical machines, such as the Schilt adding machine of 1851, 
the oldest European key-driven machine; a Bollee direct-multiplica- 
tion machine, one of only three such machines made by Louis Bollee 
betAveen 1888 and 1892; and the famous Scheutz difference engine of 
1853, the first complete difference engine ever built. A replica of 
Charles Babbage's difference engine was donated by the International 
Business Machines Corporation. 

Among the most outstanding accessions in the section of light ma- 
chinery and horology was a pocket watch made by Henry and James F. 
Pitkin of East Hartford^ Conn., in about 1838. This specimen is an 
example of the first American attempt at watchmaking by machines. 
Other significant acquisitions by this section were a splendid example 
of a French skeleton clock of the late 18th century and a combination 
lock patented in 1841 by Dr. Solomon Andrews, an American inventor. 

The section of tools acquired the J. R. Brown linear dividing ma- 
chine of 1859 from the Brown and Sharpe Company, which was a 
milestone in the history of measurement in American manufacturing. 
A fully operative reproduction of the gun-stocking lathe developed 
by Thomas Blanchard in 1820-22 was also received. This pioneer 
machine, the original of which is in ( lie Springfield Armory in Spring- 
field, Mass., represents tlie beginning of American mass production 
by machine tools. A rare 19th-century Holtzapff'el ornamental turn- 



Magneto-electric generator made in 
1832 or 1833, representing first use of 
a commutator, invented by A. M. Am- 
pere, for production of direct current. 
Cam on the vertical shaft caused con- 
tact to be made on the crossed strips of 
copper first in one direction, then in the 


iiig lathe was acquired ^Yitll a veiy comprehensive collection of acces- 
sories. Edward Johansson, Royal Swedish Consul at Detroit, donated 
a set of Johansson gauge blocks for the hall. The adoption of the 
system of gauges, invented in the late 19th century by his father, 
C. E. Johansson, revolutionized mass production by making it possible 
to achieve universal interchangeability of machine parts. This par- 
ticular set was the first to be produced in stainless steel and was made 
especially to be given to the inventor, on his 71st birthday in 1933. 
The presentation was made in a formal ceremony in the hall of tools 
on March 13 by the Eoyal Swedish Ambassador, His Excellency 
Hubert de Besch. 

Among the outstanding models received by the division of trans- 
portation, were a Pacific Coast lumber steamer, a 4-masted barkentine, 
and the schooner Fly of 1812. A model of the new class of fast 
freight steamers, the American Challenger, 1962 record holder for 
the North Atlantic crossing by a freighter, was received from the 
United States Lines as a gift. 

The oldest scale model of an American-built ship, His Majesty's 
44-gun ship America, built at Portsmouth, N.H., in 1746-47, was 
received as a 3-year loan from the trustees of the Portsmouth Athe- 
naeum, Portsmouth, IST.H., on a special agreement. The model will be 
repaired and exhibited by the marine section and, after a year, trans- 
ferred to the division of naval history for a 2-year exhibition period. 

Three early railway signals (1880-1905) were donated by Thomas 
T. Taber to the section of land transportation. The vehicle collection 
was enriched by several important additions. The Mack Bulldog- 
truck (1930) is the first commercial motor vehicle to be added to the 
collection and was donated by Victor Ottilio & Sons. A fine Rock- 
away (1860) was the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Carl F. Flemer, Jr. A 
Hack Passenger Wagon (1880), more commonly called a mud wagon, 
was also added to the carriage collection. 

The largest object accessioned in the division of electricity was an 
85-ton alternating-current generator from the Adams station at 
Niagara Falls, donated jointly by Niagara-Mohawk Power Corp. 
and Westinghouse Electric Corp. It is this alternator that inaugu- 
rated in 1895 the modern era of central stations distributing electrical 
power over large areas. A somewhat smaller, but very important, 
magneto generator was received from the University of Virginia. It 
was made by Hippolyte Pixii in 1832 or 1833, and represents the first 
use of a commutator for the production of direct current. Only two 
other machines like this are known to exist in the world. A third 
generator, by Charles Wheatstone, was obtained on indefinite loan 
from King's College, Univei'sity of Jjondon. It is one of the first 


examples of a self-excited dynamo, a principle that was discovered 
coincidentally by Wlieatstone in England and Werner Siemens in 
Germany in 1866. Excellent replicas of four alternating current 
motors representing the pioneer work of Galileo Ferraris in 1885 were 
given to the museum by the Associazione Elettrotecnica ed Elettronica 
Italiana and Istituto Elettrotecnico ISTazionale Galileo Ferraris of 

Among the major accessions during the past year in the division 
of medical sciences were a collection of tools and research apparatus 
used in a late 19th-century microbiology and biochemistry laboratory, 
donated by the University of Michigan, and the 1953 hydraulic tur- 
bine contra-angle handpiece with accessories and test model for dental 
drilling, from the National Bureau of Standards. Also acquired were 
the office material, dental instruments, and personal memorabilia of 
Dr. Charles E. Kells as a gift from his daughter, Mrs. J. O. Pierson, 
through the School of Medicine of Tulane University. To the phar- 
maceutical collection, an ancient Egyptian mortar and pestle, weights, 
and amulets were added. 

Arts and Manufactures 

Mr. Ralph E. Becker presented to the division of textiles a compre- 
hensive collection of silk Jacquard-woven pictures. These interesting- 
examples of an unusual weaving art date from 1867 through the 1930's. 
The wide variety of subjects include pictures of Columbus sighting- 
America, Betsy Ross stitching the flag, and facsimiles of the signa- 
tures of the Declaration of Independence. An excellent collection of 
American needlework was presented by Dr. Margaret R. Sandels. One 
of the embroidered pictures. The Sea Beast^ of Mrs. Theodore Roose- 
velt, Jr., a noted needlewoman, was given by Mr. and Mrs. Sidney 
de la Rue. A colorful 18th-century floral border by the distinguished 
French designer, Philippe de Lasalle, was added to the brocade 

Mrs. Clara W. Berwick supplemented her previous gifts to the divi- 
sion of ceramics and glass by 74 pieces of rare early American glass 
and 22 European and Oriental ivories. Robert H. McCauley pre- 
sented 65 pieces of Liverpool-type transfer-printed earthenware, in- 
cluding a number of rare pitchers decorated with American themes. 
Mr. McCauley is the author of the definitive book, Liverpool Trans- 
fer Designs on Anglo-American Pottery. Mr. AVilliam A. Suther- 
land continued to add to the division's collection of 18th-century 
English porcelains. This year she gave 28 fine examples of the produc- 
tion of 10 important factories, including a splendid Derby pitcher and 



a rare Lowestoft coffee pot. Dr. Hans Syz presented by transfer 53 
pieces of 18tli-centiiry European porcelain. This collection, one of the 
finest in America, is especially notable for examples of the important 
German factories, such as Meissen, Berlin, Hohst, Frankenthal, Lud- 
wigsburg^ and of the extremely rare Viennese porcelain of the DuPa- 
quier period. 

Liverpool pitcher, ca. 1805, with full-length transfer print of Thomas 
Jefferson. From Robert H. McCauley collection. 

The most important accession received in the division of graphic 
arts was a bequest of 243 Currier & Ives lithographs of sporting and 
western subjects from the Adele S. Colgate Estate. This gift greatly 
enhances the standing of the Museum's collection of Currier & Ives 
prints. The important gift of Mr. Erich Colin of 20 drawings and 
etchmgs by the German expressionist artists, Paul Kleinschmidt and 
I.yudwig Meidner, records a part of what was probably the strongest 
group contribution to printmaking in this century. The Society of 
Washington Printniakers donated, through its President, Mr. Prentiss 
Taylor, the intaglio print, Imi/f/r /II, by Lois Fine; the woodcut TJie 
Valley, by Isabella Walker ; and the lithograph, A^ova Scotia, by Louis 

The section of pholograpliy acquired a number of historically note- 
worthy specimens of photographs and equipment. Lucien G. Bull of 
Paris presented a large group of material related to the early history 


of high-speed photography, consisting of original negatives, prints and 
an electromechanical timing device. Ansco, Binghampton, N.Y., pre- 
sented a model of a photographic wagon of the type used by Mathew 
Brady during the Civil War. Nikon, Inc., presented a "Nikonos" 35 
mm. underwater camera, with watertight lens and body, for use under 
water without a protective housing. The New York Daily Mirror 
donated a lightweight Zeiss Ikon, Ernemann plate camera, originally 
purchased in the 1930's by William Randolph Hearst to replace the 
bulkier cameras used by his newspapers, and another specially designed 
camera intended to take pictures from a concealed position. 

The division of manufactures and heavy industries continued to 
collect for the various halls planned for the Museum of History and 
Technology. New York University presented to the section of nuclear 
energy the first subcritical reactor to be installed in a teaching institu- 
tion. It was improvised from two tons of fuel lent by the U.S. Atomic 
Energy Commission and installed in a pickle barrel, and it enabled the 
university to secure at a cost of $1,500 a teaching research facility 
which might otherwise have been unattainable. 

Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company presented a model of an 
electric weld pipe mill for the hall of iron and steel. A malleable-iron 
air furnace was given by Erie Malleable Iron Co. ; and some Roman 
nails from the Inchtuthil excavation in Scotland came from Colvilles, 
Ltd., of Glasgow. 

The section of petroleum received further gifts as a result of the 
excellent work of the American Petroleum Institute's subcommittee. 
Among these were : An animated model of a modern sea-going drilling- 
installation from Kerr-McGee Oil Industries, Inc.; three models of 
drilling rigs from the Lee C. Moore Corp. ; and an interesting survey 
model of the Velma field from Skelly Oil Co. 

The division of agriculture and forest products has been princi- 
pally concerned with obtaining materials for the hall of forest prod- 
ucts. The Forest Products Laboratory, Department of Agriculture, 
Madison, Wis., gave a swellograph — a device that measures swelling- 
changes in wood which has a finished surface. Larus and Brother 
Co., Inc., reproduced a tobacco hogshead like those used 125 to 150 
years ago. Permali, Inc., contributed samples of machined parts 
for electrical equipment and Fibron Products, Buffalo, N.Y., gave 17 
handsome j)ieces of compressed wood products. To the agricultural 
collection has been added catalogs of agTicultural implement com- 
panies around 1880 belonging to Sylvanus D. Locke, the inventor of 
the famous wire binder. Mr. Gordon Dentry donated a 4:-tined wooden 
fork used by his grandfather and possibly his great-grandfather in 
Baltimore County, Md. 


Civil History 

Several items with Presidential associations received in the divi- 
sion of political history include a pair of leather chaps worn by 
President Theodore Roosevelt in the Dakota Territory, the gift 
of Mr. and Mrs. Kermit Roosevelt; a meerschaum pipe used by 
President Ulysses S. Grant in the White House, from the estate 
of George W. Crouch; one of the microphones used by President 
Franklin D. Roosevelt during his "fireside chats" to the American 
people in the 1930's and 1940's, the gift of the Columbia Broadcasting- 
System and WTOP-Radio, Washington, D.C. ; a pen used on Jan. 23, 
1964, by President Lyndon B. Johnson to sign the bill establishing the 
John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the gift of Sena-

collection are two dresses worn by Mrs. Grover Cleveland as First 
Lady and an evening cape which had belonged to her, gifts of Mr. 
and Mrs. Richard F. Cleveland. One of the new dresses, of black 
satin and iridescent taffeta, now represents Mrs. Cleveland in the ex- 
hibit in the First Ladies hall. 

During the year, 303 examples of costume were added to tlie Ameri- 
can costume collection. Outstanding among these additions were a 
diamond necklace given by Mr. and Mrs. Henry W. Breyer, Jr.; a 
diamond and pearl necklace donated by Mrs. Gibson L. Caldwell; a 
collection of very fine furs given by Mrs. Herbert A. May ; an 18th- 
century wedding dress given by Miss Lenora Bessey through Mrs. 
Austin H. Clark ; a pair of shoe buckles of about 1800 donated by Miss

The division of cultural history received the frame and woodwork 
of an entire house, the gift of Alexander B. C. Mulholland; built in 
Ipswich, Mass., the older portion of this house dates from the late 
17th century and the remainder from about 1750, The Honorable 
David Bruce presented 18th-century woodwork and paneling from 
two rooms from Charleston, S.C, houses. The architecture of Louis 
Sullivan is represented in one lot of ornaments from his Chicago 
Stock Exchange Building, given by Mr. and Mrs. Leon M. Despres, 
and in another lot from Sullivan's Garrick Building, given by the 
Joint Committee on Preservation of the Garrick Building Ornament 
and by llie World Book Kiicyclopedia. Mr. and IVlrs. Fielding Pope 
Meigs, Jr., presented 223 misrcllaneous pieces of fui'nihirc, nionsils, 
porti-aits, and other items, all heirlooms of the Meigs family. Other

1835, a rare and early example of its kind. 

Drum used in the funeral of President John F. Kennedy, presented by 
the Department of Defense. 


To the division of numismatics was added, an original pewter strik- 
ing of the noted Castorland token made for the officers of the French 
colony established at Carthage, N.Y., 1Y96, and a rare pattern 
half dollar of 1916, both given by Ben Douglas. Other outstanding- 
additions to the United States series were a $20 goldpiece in high 
relief and a $10 goldpiece originally owned by Henry Hering, who 
completed the design of these coins in 1907 for Augustus St. Gaudens, 
and Mr. Hering's notes concerning the history of this gold coinage 
and the interest in it of President Theodore Roosevelt; these were 
the gift of Stack's of New York. A die used by the J. J. Conway 
Co. of Colorado in the striking of a private $5 goldpiece was donated 
by Robert Bashlow. Joseph B. Stack gave tintypes of the Bechtler 
family, well-known private gold coiners from North Carolina, a da- 
guerreotype of John Little Moffat, a leading coiner in San Francisco 
during the gold rush, and the notebook of the mint engraver, J. B.

covers, many of which bear special postal markings and commemo- 
rative stamps. Charles H. Wuerz, Jr., continued to contribute 
stamps of Siam in an effort to complete that section of the National 
Postage Stamp collection. 

Armed Forces History 

A fine example of a Gatling gun was presented by the Armed 
Forces of Honduras. Mrs. George C. Marshall presented several uni- 
forms worn by General of the Army George C. Marshall during 
World War II. The division of naval history made significant addi- 
tions to the national collection of historic warship models while pro- 
jecting further units required to complete the hall of armed forces 
history. Particularly notable was a rigged model of Robert Fulton's 
Steam Battery^ the world's first steam man-o-war, which was built 
by Adam and Noah Brown in 1814 for the defense of New York. 
Plans for this 26-gmi blockship were provided by Howard I. 
Chapelle who in 1961 discovered a contemporary draught of the 
Steam Battery in the Danish Royal Archives at Copenhagen. By 
happy coincidence, the division of naval history also received an origi- 
nal Fulton draught of the armored torpedo boat Mute^ presented by 
the family of George F. Brown, descendants of her versatile builders, 
the Brown brothers of New York. The emergence of the steam navy 
was further represented with the completion of a superb model of 
the side-wheel steamer Potohatan which served with Commodore 
Perry in the opening of trade with Japan. 

Through the generosity of the U. S. Coast Guard, the division of 
naval history received a fully-equipped beach cart of the type used 
by the Life Saving Service for offshore rescue, a set of range lights 
from Alaska, and an oil painting by Hunter Wood of the topmast 
schooner Massachusetts^ first cutter commissioned by the early Reve- 
nue Marine. 

A patent model of the revolutionary K-1 firing device, the heart 
of the antenna mine employed in the North Sea mine barrage during 
World War I, Avas presented by Mrs. Ralph C. Brown, widow of its 
gifted inventor. Vivid memories of the battle of Midway were evoked 
by the bullet-torn flight jacket and combat decorations donated by 
George H. Gay, sole survivor of Torpedo Squadron 8. 

Among the more important objects acquired by the section of under- 
water exploration during the year are ship's fittings from a wreck 
site in Bermuda believed to date from the IHfiO's. These include a bar 
shot, several single blocks, two i)arrels, siiuill and iiu'diiun-sized dead- 
eyes, and a large collection of ceramic sherds some of which will yield 
nearly complete vessels when reconstructed.

The custodial and other departmental activities concerned with 
maintenance and preservation of collections are still hampered by 
construction work, but improvement over the preceding year can be 
noted in several particulars. In the division of archeology, all stor- 
age units from the third floor corridors have been moved to permanent 
quarters on the fourth floor ; the special air-conditioned textile room 
at the east end of the attic has been occupied; metal shelving for 
heavy stone objects has been installed behind the exhibits area in 
hall 21; and much useful space for storage of drawers, trays, and 
pasteboard boxes has been gained by partial flooring over the skylight 
space. Wliite paint on the walls and added lighting fixtures have 
very greatly improved working facilities in the division's attic space. 

In the division of ethnology, the movement of North American 
Indian collections into the north attic has been almost completed ; and 
the arrival of a supply of storage cases has made possible a significant 
improvement in the previously crowded conditions here. The re- 
arrangement of the African and Asian collections on the fifth floor of 
the east wing continued ; special attention was given items requiring 
protection. A temporary workshop for cleaning and restoration of 
objects needed for exhibits was set up in the attic, and a crew of col- 
lege students worked on a contract basis under technical supervision of 
Mr. Charles Olin of the Conservation Laboratory. Continuation of 
this successful enterprise is anticipated. 



111 the division of physical anthropology, a double move of the brain 
collection and the Aleutian and Kodiak Island materials, was occa- 
sioned by preparation for reno^'ation of the present quarters of the 

The repair and restoration of damaged anthropological specimens, 
includmg newly received objects and others from older collections 
continued to occupy the time of exhibits specialist A. J. Andrews; ap- 
proximately 200 archeological, ethnological, and skeletal items were 
treated in his laboratory. As in previous years, several tasks were 
done for other units in the Smithsonian Institution, and technical m- 
formatioii on preservation and conservation methods was supplied 
to individuals outside the agency. Scientific illustrator George E. 
Lewis completed 465 stipple- and 87 line-drawings, 25 maps and 
charts, 2 signs and labels, 1 color and 6 detailed pencil drawings, most 
of which will be included in archeological and ethnological manu- 
scripts intended for publication. 


The rapid growth of the collections, the necessary disruptions of 
normal routine procedures by the building construction program, and 
the anticipated move to new quarters combined to create unusually 
difficult problems in caring for the zoological collections. 

In the division of maimnals, good progress was made by museum 
aide B. T. Lovinggood in rearranging the alcoholic collections, and 
about two-thirds of this material is now properly organized; newly 
accessioned material was integrated as it was received. The card- 
index system was reorganized and brought up to date. The renova- 
tion of the west attic was completed and the skeleton collection that 
had been evacuated from that area in the previous year was returned ; 
its final arrangement cannot be made until the part of the attic area 
now occupied by other divisions is made available. 

In the division of birds, museum specialist Theodore S. Bober has 
had major responsibility for the care of the collections. With his 
assistance. Dr. George E. Watson planned for the installation of 400 
new cases in the skin and skeleton collection. Under the direction 
of the latter, summer intern David A. Bratley rearranged the entire 
library collection, rare folio volumes and field catalogs now^ being 
stored in locked cabinets. Dr. R. L. Zusi supervised arrangements 
for the installation of equipment in the alcoholic storage room and 
has developed plans for rearranging the anatomical collections. A 
geographic punch-card file of species needed for the skeleton and 
alcoliolic collections is in preparation, and lists of desiderata will be 
prepared for field parties in various parts of the world. Research 


associate Alexander Wetmore, and Dr. Lester L. Short, Jr., Jolin W. 
Aldrich, and Mrs. Koxie Laybourne of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service have generously provided identifications and information to 
the division of birds. Dr. Short assumed major responsibility for the 
care of the collection of North American birds. 

In the division of reptiles and amphibians, museum aide Dorsey 
Williams completed an inventory of the entire collection of reptiles 
and amphibians. Most of the specimens misplaced in previous years 
have been located and properly filed, recent acquisitions have all been 
cataloged, and only a limited number of specimens remain to be 

With the assistance of a temporary aide in the division of fishes, 
about 50 percent of the glass jars in the alcohol storage area were ex- 
amined and the alcohol content replaced or altered to proper level 
and strength. This project will be continued and should be accele- 
rated by the addition of another aide in the division. About 4Y new 
storage tanks were acquired, replacing about twice as many crocks. 
This project is progressing slowly; there remain 132 crocks from 
which the loss of alcohol endangers the specimens stored in them. A 
new system of cataloging collections, involving 3 x 5" cards, has been 
devised and will be operational by July 1964. 

Critical shortage of space in the existing alcohol stack in the divi- 
sion of marine invertebrates has resulted from the acquisition of large 
collections from the Antarctic and from the Atlantic coast, and from 
the return of large segments of collections which had been sent to spe- 
cialists for identification. These collections have necessitated the 
use of temporary storage in other divisions and at the Sorting Center. 
Dry collections, now stored in a number of areas in the Natural His- 
tory Museum, were almost completely reorganized for moving them 
into the west wing. The worm groups were rearranged and put in 
proper order, collections of stomatopods were expanded and reorga- 
nized, and nondecapod crustacean types were segregated and reshelved 
systematically. Museum specialist Henry B. Roberts, who bears pri- 
mary responsibility for the organization of the move of the collections, 
spent considerable time in desigiiing and planning new cataloging 
procedures. Mrs. Emily Mandelbaum, museum technician, made 
great progress in the cataloging of the polychaete collection and spent 
considerable time in rearranging general collections. Miss Maureen 
Downey, museum technician, continued her work on the echinoderm 
collection and arranged publications, manuscripts, and other docu- 
ments in preparation for the move of the division. JNIuseum techni- 
cian Roland Brown assisted in the movement of collections in the 
alcohol stacks and processed incoming collections; and museum tech- 
nician T. P. Lowe completed the organization of the coral collections 

744-993—64 5 


and of the stony hydroids. Much progress was made m examining 
the alcoholic collections for state of preservation and transferring 
specimens from the older ground-glass sealed bottles to clamp-top, 
rubber sealed jars. Summer intern James Casey worked principally 
on the divisional library, bringing the filing of separates and their 
card indexing up to date. Summer intern Richard Laub arranged 
the Tertiary fossil corals, a collection that had never been organized. 
With the addition of new quarter-unit cases in the division of mol- 
lusks, the storage facilities for the reference collection is adequate, 
and progress has been made in distributing the previously crowded 
portions of the collection in the new cases. A rearrangement of cer- 
tain families that have been sorted on a geographical basis to a sys- 
tematic one was also initiated. The helminthological collection, both 
slides and alcoholic specimens, in the care of tlie Beltsville Parasitologi- 
cal Laboratory, is in excellent condition. 


In the division of Coleoptera, with the aid of a National Science 
Foundation grant, several thousand specimens of the scarab genus 
Atsenms were mounted, labeled, and placed in museum drawers, and 
Y,000 specimens of lieotropical water beetles were prepared for critical 
study and placed in standard museum drawers. An additional 9,500 
specimens of water beetles are on hand and preparation of them is 

David R. Rentz, while serving as a summer intern, incorporated 
certain orthopterous insects, accumulated over a period of many years, 
with the main series of our determined collection. This major proj- 
ect required the sorting of 146,000 specimens and arranging them in 
their proper places under appropriate names. This part of the col- 
lection now occupies 400 drawers in 19 standard cases. 

Marked improvement in the collection of jSi'europtera, Trichoptera, 
and allied groups occurred again this year with the addition of more 
than 20,000 specimens. Among these were 291 species, 36 genera, and 
one family not previously represented in the national collection. 

This year empliasis has been placed on reorganization and rehabili- 
tation in the Hemiptera collection. Mrs. Florence A. Ruhoif has 
been instiTimental in accomplishing this task. The major heter- 
opterous families Lygaeidae, jNIiridae, Reduviidae and Coreidae, as 
well as most of tlie small families, were renrranged and labeled to 
confonn io a uniform system now in ns(\ and in (lie process numerous 
siuall lots of specimens were incorporated. Tlie rearranged part of 
the collection now occupies 779 standard drawers. Research associate 
(^arl J. Drake actively continued improvement of tlie Drake collection 


by a ]5rograin of excliange and cooperative publication with other 
workers. By this means he acquired numerous types and specimens 
of other species not previously represented in the national collection. 

Kesearch associate C. F. W. Muesebeck continued to bring improve- 
ment and growth to the collection of braconid wasps by an active 
program of research and by his cooperative work with students in 
other institutions. 

In the division of Lepidoptera the condition of the collection con- 
tinued to improve during the year. Mrs. Joan Ledbetter, museum 
aide, completed labeling and transferring to standard museum draw- 
ers the following three collections : Ernest Shoemaker collection, 4,100 
specimens; J. C. Hopfinger collection, 5,500 specimens; Graham Heid 
collection, 1,500 specimens. In addition, Mrs. Ledbetter spread and 
labeled 1,100 specimens obtained on recent expeditions. More than 
1,600 Microlepidoptera from Eapa, mostly Tortricidae, have been pre- 
pared, labeled and placed in the collection. The Neotropical Ypono- 
meutidae were rearranged and properly labeled in accordance with 
contemporary systems, and the Western Hemisphere Stenomidae were 
appreciably augmented by the identification and addition of many 
species not previously represented. 

Summer intern Jay C. Shaffer amalgamated three separate collec- 
tions of pyraloid moths totaling 11,500 specimens into a single, well- 
organized unit, making available heretofore nearly inaccessible data. 

Eestoration and rehousing of the oldest holdings of Arachnida and 
Myriapoda continued. Many old specimens have been restored by the 
use of trisodium phosphate, rebottled and relabeled. More than 
306,000 ticks were restored during the past year by museum aide 
Mrs. Sophie Lutterlough, using this procedure, and the treatment of 
the tick collection is continuing. Many old or damaged microscopic 
preparations have been disassembled and remounted. 

During the year Mrs. Mary Quigley mounted 5,079 miscellaneous 
insects and summer intern Mrs. Kathleen Rentz prepared 3,283 mis- 
cellaneous insects, all of which were incorporated in the collection. 


The major activities in caring for the permanent collections and 
the processing of new material are summarized in the following table :

There are now 59,732 types in the segregated type herbarium, in- 
cluding 41,719 phanerogams, 10,133 grasses, 3,484 ferns, and 4,396 
cryptogams. This is an increase of 430 types during the year. 


In the division of paleobotany museum teclinician James P. 
Ferrigno, mider the supervision of associate curator Francis M. 
Hueber, segregated approximately 48 percent of the primary and 
secondary type specimens from the general paleobotanical collections. 
The types are being checked for accuracy of labeling by comparing 
them with original illustrations and descriptions, and are being 
arranged alphabetically under the heading used in their original pub- 
lication. After completion of segregation, the individual groups of 
specimens will be arranged in chronological order by publication, thus 
eliminating the problems raised by changes in taxonomic classification 
of particular species, and also by changes of interpretation of geologic 
age of the specimens. 

Curatorial work in the invertebrate paleontology collections cen- 
tered on the carding of type specimens. Mucli progress was made 
in building a card file of all types as an addition to the standard cata- 
loging procedures now in use. The cards serve as a ready reference 
for specimen control and as the primary source of data for a pub- 
lished catalog, the first section of which is in the final stage of 
preparation. The conodont and Paleozoic nautiloid collections are 
carded and the manuscript preparation is undergoing final typing; 
the blastoid, cystoid, and echinoid type collections are carded and 
waiting for the recording of the crinoids prior to publication. 

Dr. P. M. Kier completed the integration of the U.S. Geological 
Survey collection of fossil echinoids with the museum collection, mak- 
ing for the first time a usable biologically arranged collection of all 
specimens available at the museum. 

The arrival of some new cases has enabled storage of part of the 
extensive stratigraphically arranged reference collections. Museum 
specialist Frederick Collier and museum technician Lorenzo Ford 
checked the geographic arrangement and jDlaced more than 250 
quarter-unit cases of drawers containing tens of thousands of speci- 
mens. These collections are now readily available for the first time 
since the move to the east wing storage area where they had been 

Dr. Richard Cifelli developed a significant advance in the prepara- 
tion and sorting of Foraminifera from general plankton collections. 
Concentrations of the calcific skeletal parts of the planktonics are 



rapidly achieved by ignition : the sample is washed with distilled water 
and dried, it is then burned at a temperature of 500° C. to remove all 
organic matter, leaving foraminiferal tests unaltered. Because the 
average plankton sample consists of a large variety of organisms 
with high protoplasm-skeletal ratios, the work of separating the 
Foraminif era from the mass with needles has been a tedious and time- 
consuming task. With this new technique, the number of samples 
handled is greatly increased over a given time. 

In vertebrate paleontology the recent acquisition of storage cases 
to completely utilize the space provided on the first floor of the east 
wing now permits better distribution and organization of the collec- 
tions and, as planned, provides for a normal increase in the collections 
for several years. Transfer to this storage area of the large residue 
of fossil fish and the smaller collections of fossil birds, formerly on 
the steel range of the old storage area, has freed the latter for the 
rapidly expanding collections of fossil marine mammals and has also 
permitted better care of the large series of titanothere skulls, formerly 
on display but now stored in temporary, inadequate racks on the 
a'round floor of the old area. 

Laboratory technician removing plankton sample after ignition in muf- 
fle furnace located in foraminiferal laboratory. Sample contains con- 
centrate of shelled organisms (mostly Foraminifera, Pteropoda, some 
Radiolaria) mixed with fine ash. 


The construction of covered racks with sliding doors over the 
quarter-unit cases of each third double row, now tAvo-fifths completed, 
provides adequately protected space for storage of most of the larger 
dinosaur bones, fisli slabs, and plaques. An important beginning was 
also made in similarly protecting the numerous, bulky remains of the 
larger mammals, such as the proboscideans, bison, ground sloths, and 

Mineral Sciences 

During the year both the polished and thin-section collections of 
meteorites were photographed, and the task of assembling this mate- 
rial into albums was started. Because the meteorite collection previ- 
ously had been stored in a non-air-conditioned area, protecting the 
specimens against corrosion due to humidity had always been a con- 
stant problem. The collection now is housed in a room with con- 
trolled 25 percent relative humidity and the polished specimens are 
much more stable. Some of the specimens most susceptible to cor- 
rosion have been sectioned and momited in plastic. Others which 
proved difficult to preserve are housed in cabinets in which electric 
lights are burned continuously to further reduce the humidity. 

Science and Technology 

Considerable staff time in the division of physical sciences has 
been devoted to planning the move into the reference area in the new 
museum. Details of the actual move were handled by scientific instru- 
ment repairer C. E. Dennison. Because of disruption of the old lab- 
oratory and incomplete equipment in the new one, most complex res- 
toration work has been suspended. Scientific instrument repairer 
C G. Smith restored a beautiful antique quadrant, and experimented 
on new types of lacquer for preserving indefinitely the surface of re- 
stored instruments. 

• In the division of mechanical and civil engineering the transfer 
of offices and collections permitted a much more rational scheme of 
specimen storage; special shelving has made the reference collections 
more readily accessible for the staff as well as for study by interested 
visitors. Every effort was directed also to the restoration of speci- 
mens scheduled for exhibition, particularly in the section of tools and 
of light machinery and horology. The National Air Museum facility 
at Silver Hill completed the restoration of the Pelton-Eiedlor pump- 
ing engine, and that of the large American diesel engine. 

With the movement of the collections into the new building, the 
division of electricity now has a true reference area where the objects 
are easily available. Most of the items chosen for exhibition have

been renovated. Electronic equipment repairer Roy V. LaRoche 
made considerable progress in restoring television sets to operating- 
condition, and museum technician Elliot Sivowitch completed the 
arduous task of cataloging the radio tubes from the Franklin AVingard 

In the division of medical sciences, museum technicians George 
Ford and Everett Jackson aided in the transfer of the medical, dental, 
and pharmaceutical collections and fixtures to the new museum. The 
operation was completed without a single instance of breakage or 
damage to the collections which are composed largely of fragile mate- 
rial and drug containers. In the division of transporation, three 
carriage restorations, the Bayly gig, Saltonstall buggy, and the Still- 
man landau, were completed. 

Arts and Manufactures 

The reference collections of the division of agriculture and forest 
products have been moved to tlie new museum. The entire reference 


collection lias been consolidated, and the new storage units used for 
patent models afford better accessibility and added protection. 

In the division of graphic arts, the Franklin press was dismantled, 
thoroughly cleaned, and reassembled preparatory to being placed on 
exhibition. The same procedure w^as followed with the Gordon-type 
job press, the linotype machines of 1884 and of 1920, the monotype 
caster and keyboard, and the Bruce typecasting machine. Reorgani- 
zation of the hand-process prints continued; several hundred prints 
were covered with acetate sheets and about two hundred prints were 
matted. Museum technician Elliott Hawkins examined and reor- 
ganized the illustrations file and established a new motion picture sec- 
tion. Associate curator Eugene Ostroff, continued his long-range 
program of reviewing the entire collection. Special attention was 
given to the editing and ]preservation of photographs, the entire col- 
lection having been brought together in the air-conditioned storage 
facilities of the new offices. 

Removal of the collections of manufactures and heavy industries 
from the Arts and Industries building and their rearrangement in 
the new museum was accomplished by museum technicians John C. 
Carter and Francis Gadson with a minimum of interruption to cur- 
rent work. Mr, Gadson skillfully restored and repaired items in the 
collections of this and other divisions of the department, while Mr, 
Carter maintained effective control over the material being assembled 
for five halls of greatly diverse character. 

The division of textiles collections of more than 40,000 cataloged 
items were moved to their new location in the new museum, under 
the supervision of museum technician Everett Parker. 

During this fiscal year, 205 items from the textile collections were 
successfully cleaned in the textile laboratory by Miss Maureen Collins. 
This work has been confined to the use of proved methods for cleaning 
uiidyed items of cotton and linen that are of a size that can be safely 
handled in the limited space available. Both nonionic detergent and 
a neutral soap have been used successfully with distilled water. Vari- 
ous methods of liand blocking have been perfected for finisliing these 
textiles ; a heated iron is never used. For articles of this limited size, 
the results have been excellent and the smoothed end product is far 
superior to the most carefully ironed one and with less chance of dam- 
age from the drying effects of the heated iron. The articles included 
lace, needlework, crochet, damask, and plain fabric in caps, edgings, 
handkerchiefs, bodices, sleeves, pockets, and so forth. The work of 
the textile laboratory included several items received from other

placed by fiberglass screening, which, it was found, is more pliable, 
does not ravel, and is easier to handle than the saran. For one piece 
of Valenciennes edging so badly deteriorated that the screening did 
not offer sufScient support, the lace was stitched between layers of 
crepeline and then between layers of screening. The cleaning pro- 
cedure could then be followed as usual. The lace having been cleaned, 
the screening was removed and the crepeline left for ease in future 

Civil History 

Museum technician Richard Muzzrole cleaned, renumbered, and 
recataloged the museum's large collection of whaling irons, correlating 
specimens with data published in the descriptive catalog of the col- 
lections sent from the United States to the International Fisheries 
Exhibition in London in 1885. This well- documented collection has 
thus been revived to its original usefulness after being moribund for 
80 years. Museum technician Jay Scott Odell carried on a continuing 
conservation program for th.e musical instrument collection in the new 
musical instruments laboratory, where installation of equipment has 


commenced. Expert consultants called in to advise on restoration 
included Donald Warnock of Cambridge, Mass., for plucked strings; 
Charles Fisk of Gloucester, Mass., for pipe organs ; and Robert Shel- 
don of Arlington, Va., for brass instruments. 

The division of cultural history has been participating in the experi- 
mental use of the Termatrex system of data retrieval as applied to 
museum objects. The experiment, undertaken by means of an anony- 
mous private foundation grant to the Henry Francis du Pont Winter- 
thur Museum, involved several participating institutions. It was in- 
augurated with an opening seminar at the Winterthur Museum, 
attended by curator C. Malcolm Watkins, who read a paper "Problems 
in Cataloguing Museum Objects." The goals of this experiment are 
simplified and controlled recording of the collections, efficient locating 
of objects, and a vaster capability in extracting data concerning the 

The move of the civil history collections from the Arts and Indus- 
tries building was carried out successfully and all the items in scat- 
tered and unsatisfactory storage areas were brought together in a more 
efficient, centralized area in the new museum. The details of the move 
of the First Ladies materials are typical of the care and effort that 
was put into the movement of other materials. The most difficult task 
was moving the mannequins. Special carrying cases were planned 
and executed by associate curator Margaret B. Klapthor and the ex- 
hibits staff so that the mannequins could be moved without removing 
the dresses. The ingenious cases permitted the dressed mannequin to 
be lifted from the old exhibit case directly to the carrying case where 
it Avas carefully screwed to the bottom, and braced at the waist. The 
loaded case was then rolled to the loading platform, placed on a truck, 
and brought to the new building, where it was unloaded directly into 
the exhibition case. Moving the 38 mannequins into the new hall, 
which took four people about ten days, was accomplished without any 
damage to either the dresses or the mannequins. 

Tests were conducted b}^ the division of numismatics in cooperation 
with the Bureau of Standards in order to determine metallurgical de- 
tails in connection with a platinum 50-cent piece dated 181-1, a Russian 
3-rouble piece, and two $5 gold pieces issued in 1849 by the ]\Iassachu- 
setts and California Gold Company. X-ray radiographic and diffrac- 
tion techniques were used, and the experiments were continued in the 
spectrochemical analysis soction of the Bureau of Standards. 

Through the coopei-al ion of the Naval Research Laboi-aiory, it was 
possible to conduct comparaJive analyses of an ancient (piarter-shekel 
in silver, struck during the first year (A.D. G6/G7) of the Jewish War 
against the Romans, and of a silver shekel struck during the third year 


of the war. The composition of the quarter-shekel was found to be 
silver, with 2 to 3 percent copper and approximately 1 percent arsenic, 
according to X-ray fluorescence analysis. The shekel was made in- 
stead of practically pure silver, with 1 percent copper and no other 
elements present. The interpretation of the X-ray diffraction pat- 
terns allows some conclusions concerning the manufacture of the 
pieces, the quarter-shekel apparently being worked cold, while the 
shekel planchet was subject to a long annealing process with very 
little, if any, cold work. These analyses are of significance for a better 
knowledge of ancient metallurgical and striking techniques, and are 
being expanded in our own research laboratory. 

Armed Forces History 

Extensive progress was made in the restoration, renovation, and re- 
arrangement of the collections, and repair of specimens designated for 
exhibit in the new museum was completed. Under the direction of 
museum specialist Donald E. Kloster, the military reference collec- 
tions were moved into the new building. 

The Continental gondola PhiladelpMa was installed on its perma- 
nent base, located appropriately adjacent to the halls of ordnance and 
underwater exploration. Grapeshot and other small objects were re- 
covered from the gunboat's mud-caked inner bottom during cleaning 
operations preparatory to the application of final preservatives. Ex- 
hibits specialist Howard P. Hoffman completed an exhaustive survey 
of the PhiladelpMa^ preparing detailed plans from which will be con- 
structed a rigged model representing this vessel as she appeared at 
the battle of Valcour Island. Meanwhile, periodic hygroscopic tests 
have been made to insure maintenance of satisfactory humidity condi- 
tions in the vicinity of the gainboat. 

Museum aides John L. Eawls and Harold W. Ellis continued to or- 
ganize by exhibit groups and refurbish specimens and graphic items in 
the naval collections pending their installation in the new hall of 
armed forces history. Substantial reorganization of the uniform 
storage and ship plans archives of the division of naval history was 
initiated following movement of the reference collections to new 

Separation of the underwater collections from those of the division 
of naval history was completed, and the new facilities have permit- 
ted a more efficient and readily accessible arrangement of the materials. 
Preservation of the collection is cai-ried on continuously, the new labo- 
ratory permitting a speed-up of these processes. Museum specialist 
Alan B. Albright adapted a completely successful routine for the use 


of the heavier molecular weights of polyethylene glycol in the preser- 
vation of ancient, water-soaked wood, as follows : 

After the object has been cleaned and towel-dried, the weight of the specimen 
is recorded. At this point, careful measurements of all of the important dimen- 
sions are made ; to obtain critical measurements when the specimen is of awk- 
ward shape and/or precise measurements are diflficult, several pins are inserted 
deep into the wood and the distance between them is measured. A second 
measurement, made when the preservation process is completed, will show any 
change. The wood is next submerged in 100 percent ethyl alcohol three or four 
times its volume (to prevent evaporation) and left there for at least three days, 
after which the wood is dried and reweighed, and the weight recorded. The 
above step is repeated several times, using new alcohol, until at least a 15 per- 
cent reduction in weight is obtained ; a higher percent reduction, if possible, is 
desirable. The lowest weight recorded is the base from which w^ax absorption 
is calculated. 

Next, a solution of polyethylene glycol 4000 and ethyl alcohol is prepared, in 
the ratio of 1 :1 by weight, in a container of glass so that the level of the liquid 
can easily be seen and recorded. After the solution is thoroughly mixed and 
heated to 65°C., the object is placed in it and the container is put in a 65°C. 
electric oven. Sometimes it is necessary to submerge the wood with weights ; 
if so, the weights are placed in an inconspicuous spot, for they often tend to 
discolor the wood. As the alcohol in the solution slowly evaporates, the poly- 
ethylene glycol content rises and the level of the liquid will show less and less 
change. After 20 or 30 days, all the alcohol will have evaporated and the remain- 
ing liquid should be 100 percent polyethylene glycol. At this point, several ounces 
of the solution are removed and allowed to cool in a shallow dish at room tem- 
perature; it should harden within an hour. If it does not, the wax is retested 
after a wait of several days. When it tests hard, the process is completed, but as 
a safety measure, a further wait of four or five additional days before removing 
the wood is advisable. When the object is removed from the solution, it is rinsed 
for 2 or 3 seconds in hot water, dried with a paper towel or lint-free cloth, and 
weighed. This final weight should represent an increase of at least 20 percent 
over the minimum weight recorded earlier. The sample is then placed in a dust- 
free area to cool. 

Usual precautions against damage from insects, dust, rats, and rust 
are taken on a regular schedule. 

Investigation and Research 

Some of the research projects described below have been undertaken 
with the partial support of research grants from such Federal granting 
agencies as the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval 
Research. A detailed listing of these is published in the Report of the 
Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. 


Dr. T. D. Stewart, director of the Museum of Natural History, ac- 
companied by exhibits specialist, John C. Widener, went to Mexico 
City in mid-December 1963, the former to select examples of prehistoric 
filed and inlayed human teeth, and the latter to make moulds thereof. 
Mr. Widener will make casts from the moulds for an exhibit in the 
planned hall of physical anthropology. 

Dr. Stewart, serving as a member of the Committee on Research and 
Exploration of the National Geographic Society, inspected the 
Wetherill Mesa archeological project in Mesa Verde National Park 
in late June, stopping off there on his way back from a second trip to 
Mexico City where he attended the 33rd annual meeting of the Ameri- 
can Association of Physical Anthropologists. 

At various times during the year Dr. I. E. Wallen, assistant director 
for oceanography, visited institutions in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, 
Louisiana, Texas, California, and Hawaii in connection with the 
program of the Smithsonian Oceanographic Sorting Center. Dr. 
Wallen also prepared several short papers dealing with developments 
in oceanography and the role of the Sorting Center. 

Dr. H. Adair Fehlmann, supervisor of the Smithsonian Oceano- 
graphic Sorting Center, participated in Cruise 4B of the R/V Anton 
Bruun, of the International Indian Ocean Expedition, from early 
November to mid-December. This trip gave him a useful opportunity 
to study curatorial procedures on shipboard and to determine the need 
for a trained technician to oversee the handling of biological samples 
from the time of collection to the time the specimen cargo is consigned 
for shipment to the Sorting Center. Thanks to his recommendations, 
future collections should come through more intact and with better 
records. Dr. Fehlmann also had an opportunity to observe the tech- 
niques and equipment used in handling planlvton in the Indian Ocean 
Biological Laboratory at Ernakulam, South India. 




Chairman Waldo R. Wedel completed a study of the XDrehistory and 
aboriginal ecology of north-central Colorado in continuation of his 
researches on the archeology of the Plains. He also continued his 
account of the 1961-62 archeological-paleontological site near Little- 
ton, Colo. His study of a prehistoric Wyoming bison kill assumed new 
interest in light of recently determined radiocarbon dates which moved 
back some 2,000 years the date for the outstanding series of artifacts 
collected at the site. 

Archeology. — Curator Clifford Evans and research associate Betty 
J. Meggers largely completed a major monograph on two phases in 
the prehistoric cultural develoj^ment of coastal Ecuador. Inclusion 
of 22 radio-carbon dates of shells and charcoal establishes the earlier 
phase ( Valdivia) at 5150 to 3400 years ago. 

Curator Richard B. Woodbury, who joined the division of archeology 
December 15, 1963, continued his studies of prehistoric water manage- 
ment in arid regions of the southwestern states and in Mexico. In this 
connection, he made two field trips to the Tehuacan Valley in southern 
Puebla, Mexico, to examine evidences of prehistoric irrigation and 
farming techniques. His conclusion that large scale irrigation there 
has been carried on for the past 2500 years makes this perhaps the 
longest record of irrigation in the New World. 

Associate curator Gus Van Beek, in collaboration with Drs. Glen H. 
Cole and A. Jamme, completed a preliminary report on an archeo- 
logical reconnaissance of Wadi Hadhramaut, South Arabia. Dr. Van 
Beek also spent more than a month in an archeological reconnaissance 
in Yemen at the invitation of the Yemen government. He discovered 
two new paleolithic sites and visited three pre\iously known pre- 
Islamic sites. 

Musemn specialist George Metcalf continued his studies of a large 
collection of 11th- and 14:th-century archeological artifacts from cen- 
tral Nebraska. Radiocarbon dates supplied by the Smithsonian's car- 
bon dating laboratory are adding new significance to the project. 
Collaborator C. G. Holland continued to study the prehistory of south- 
western Virginia as revealed by data and collections from 161 sites 
visited in 1963. 

Research associate Neil M. Judd completed a monograph on archeo- 
logical materials from Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. During the sum- 
mer of 1963, research associate John M. Campbell carried out an 
archeological and ecological survey of the Koyukuk River drainage 
in northern Alaska, aided by a grant from the Arctic Institute of 
America, and continued pi'eparation of a monograph on Nunamiut 
Eskimo prehistory. 



Chinese calligraphy is explained in new hall of cultures of Africa and 

Ethnology. — Curator Saul H. Riesenberg completed a monograph 
on the aborigmal political organization of Ponape, Caroline Islands. 
In collaboration with Drs. Evans and Meggers, he has underway a 
study of the megalithic structures on the Nan Madol, Ponape, the site 
of a joint ethnological-archeological field program last year. 

Associate curators Gordon Gibson and Eugene Knez were heavily 
involved throughout the year in research directed toward completion 
of the exhibit hall on the peoples of Asia and Africa. Dr. Gibson 
devoted a substantial part of this time to a search of the literature 
on Africa in an eiiort to identify accurately objects selected for exhibi- 
tion. Dr. Knez completed most of the exhibit units on Asiatic cultures 
in the hall, which opened informally at the end of the year. 

Associate curator William Crocker continued work on the Canela 
Indians in northeastern Brazil. He spent two weeks Avith the tribe 
in July 1963, and three months early in 1961. At year's end he was 
again living among the Canelas. 

Physical Anthropology. — Curator J. Lawrence Angel completed a 
manuscript on the anatomy of the hip joint; another on human skele- 
tons associated with extinct animals at the Tranquillity site in Cali- 
fornia; and assembled data for a paper on hyperostosis spongiosa to 
be included in a volume on paleopathology. He advanced his long- 
term program on the anthropology of chronic disease, involving re- 
study of students at Jefferson Medical College who had been studied 


several years ago. Another aspect of this program is on aging, 
(pathology, and mortality among prehistoric and ancient Greeks,' 
Eskimos, and U.S. Whites. With his technical assistant Donald 
Ortner, Dr. Angel worked out a special blank which will permit rapid 
coding of data for computer analysis. 

Associate curator Lucile E. Hoyme was ui England at the beginning 
of the year, studying human skeletal collections and visiting labora- 
tories of physical anthropology. Particular attention was given to a 
series of 19th-century skeletons of known name, age, and sex at St. 
Bride's Church, Fleet Street, London. In December Dr. Hoyme 
received a Ph. D. degree from Oxford University, since which time 
she has continued her studies of skeletal variation and participated 
in the training of visiting scholars. Because of her radiological skills, 
she has been able to contribute to study and identification of anthro- 
pological and other materials in and outside the Smithsonian In-

Chairman Ilorton H. Hobbs, Jr., studied the freshwater decapod 
crustaceans on the ishmd of Dominica, West Indies, as a participant 
in tlie Bredin-Arclibokl-Smithsonian biolog-ical survey of that ishmd. 
He has continued his investigations of crayfisli ; he has made substan- 
tial progress on a revision of some of the Mexican and Cuban ostra- 
cods; and he completed a manuscript on ncAv entocytherids from 

Senior scientist Fenner A. Chace, Jr., completed a study on one 
species of shrimp in the northeastern Pacific. He also largely com- 



pleted a report on the decapod crustaceans of St. Helena in the South 

Mammals. — Curator David H, Johnson, although responsible for 
the general development of exhibits in the newly opened hall of oste- 
ology, found time to study the distribution of hares and certain species 
of bats in southeastern Asia, and to continue his general survey of 
the mammals of that area. 

Direction of the field parties collecting specimens of mammals and 
their ectoparasites in Iran and southern Africa occupied much of the 
time of associate curator Henry W. Setzer ; this field program is car- 
ried on with the cooperation of the Army Medical Research and 
Development Command. Dr. Setzer joined the African party in 
September ; from late October to mid-December he directed the field 
operations in Iran. He worked in the museum collections identifying 
mammals of Egypt and the Sudan collected by a Naval Research Unit. 

Associate curator Charles O. Handley, Jr., continued his mono- 
graphic research of the bat genus Artiheus by a study trip to the Uni- 
versities of Kansas and New Mexico, and to Texas A&M University. 

In newly opened hall of osteology, differences In skeletal structures and 
postures of man and manlike apes are related to their specialized ways 
of life. 


At the First International Symposinm on Cetacean Research he pre- 
sented a paper embodying some of his research toward a monograph 
on the pigmy sperm whales. From January to March he collected 
maimnals, especially bats, in the high mountain region of Darien, 
Panama, at the boundary with Colombia. Among the many valuable 
collections were two species of bats new to Panama, as well as rare 
marsupials, shrews, and rodents. 

Research associate Robert A. Traub of the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine collected vertebrates and their ectoparasites in 
Pakistan in continuation of his studies of rickettsial infections. 

Birds. — ^The Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program, under the 
direction of curator Philip S. Humphrey, has increased greatly in 
scope since its inception in October 1962. It is chiefly concerned with 
the distribution, migrations, and ecology of central Pacific sea birds. 
Collaborative relationships have been developed with the U.S. Bureau 
of Commercial Fisheries, the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, the State 
of Hawaii Division of Fish and Game, and others. Many members 
of the field staii in this program are graduate students gathering- 
data for doctoral dissertations. 

The Rockefeller Foundation provided support for a field study en- 
abling Dr. Humphrey to work with the Belem Virus Laboratory, 
Funclagao Servigo Especial de Saiide Piiblica, and the Museu Para- 
ense "Emilio Goeldi," Belem, Brazil. This cooperative field study 
deals with the relationship of birds and arthropod-borne virus dis- 
eases. Dr. Humphrey continued his studies of plumage succession in 
birds and on the distribution, ecology, and classification of Patagonian 
and Brazilian birds. 

Associate curator George E. Watson completed his dissertation on 
the ecology and evolution of passerine birds on the islands of the 
Aegean Sea, and received from Yale University a Ph. D. degree in 
June. He was on loan to the Office of the Secretary of Defense as 
official United States observer on the Chilean- Antarctic Commission 
Expedition, 1963-64. His main purpose on the expedition was to 
gather specimens and to make photographs for use in preparing an 
identification guide to Antarctic birds. Pie visited Nelson, Robert, 
Greenwich, and Deception Islands in the South Shetland group, and 
localities on the Antarctic Peninsula and near Anvers Island. The 
last two weeks of December were spent in the forested lake region 
of Llanquihue Province, Chile, and he collected specimens farther 
south, near Punta Arenas and on Navarino Island. 

Associate curator Richard L. Zusi, who joined the staff September 3, 
1963, undertoolv research on the collections of the INIuseum of Zoology, 
University of Michigan, in November and consulted witli Dr. R. W. 
Storer concerning their joint research project on tlie myology of

grebes. From January to April, Dr. Zusi was in Dominica as a par- 
ticipant in the Breclin-Archbolcl-Smithsonian biological survey of 
that island. 

Professor D. S. Rabor of Silliman University, Philippine Islands, 
was appointed honorary research associate in September 1963. Prof. 
Rabor is continuing research on the ornithology of the Philippine 
Islands. Dr. Robert W. Ficken of the University of Maryland, also 
a new honorary research associate, is engaged in extensive field and 
laboratory research on the behavior of wood warblers. 

In continuation of his field work on the bird life of the Isthmus of 
Panama, research associate Alexander Wetmore concentrated his 
efforts during January through March in Darien Province, mainly in 
the heavy rain forest adjacent to the Colombian boundary. The re- 
sults were most successful, for specimens were obtained and observa- 
tions made on species that have been little known in the Republic, and 
several new records of South American birds not previously known 
from Panama were established. 

Research associate Herbert G. Deignan studied at the Museum from 
mid-January to late April, concentrating his efforts on the ISTAMRU 
collections of birds from Formosa and specimens collected in Viet 
Nam and Cambodia by Bernard Feinstein, former museum specialist 
in the division. 


Research associate Herbert Friedmann continued liis work on brood 
parasitism and completed a manuscript dealing with evolutionary 
trends in the avian genus Clamator. 

Reptiles and amphibians. — With the collaboration of Dr. C. J. 
Goin, work on the bulletin on Colombian frogs by curator Doris M. 
Cochran has progressed rapidly and should be completed during the 
next fiscal year. 

Fishes. — Curator Leonard P. Schultz has continued his studies of 
the frogfishes and is actively engaged in the direction of a research 
program on sharks. Mrs. Marilyn H. Malin, research assistant, is 
maintaining an up-to-date documented file of shark attacks through- 
out the world, a project partially supported by the Office of Naval 
Research. Dr. Schultz's manuscript, "The Family Sternoptychidae," 
is being published by the Sears Foundation in volume 4 of "Fishes of 
the Western North Atlantic." 

Associate curator Robert H. Gibbs, Jr., has continued his research 
on the comparative anatomy and systematics of tunas and of the family 
Scombridae, on the systematic and ecology of stomiatoid fishes, the 
systematics of the western Atlantic flying fishes, the distribution of 
surface fishes from the vicinity of the Gulf Stream, and the systematics 
of the subgenus CyprineUa of N'ofropis. During the past year. Dr. 
Gibbs participated in Cruise 3 of the International Indian Ocean 
Expedition and studied in laboratories in Europe and Asia from 
August to December. Purpose of the cruise was to sample deep-sea 
ichthyofauna of the western Indian Ocean and to relate the distribu- 
tions of species and biomass to the physiochemical and biological prop- 
erties of the water masses sampled in a north-south transect. 

Associate curator Ernest A. Lachner participated in Cruise 4B of 
the R/V Anton Bruun^ purpose of which was to evaluate the relative 
distribution and abundance of benthic organisms inhabiting the con- 
thiental shelf and upper slope of the Arabian Sea. Enroute to the 
Indian Ocean and return, Dr. Lachner examined specimens and ar- 
ranged for the loan and exchange of collections in Europe, Israel, 
India, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, and at Stanford University, 
California. While in Australia, Dr. Lachner revised his manuscripts 
on the Gobiidae and Eleotridae and also expanded his study of the 
diskfishes. In cooperation with Mr. Robert Jenkins, graduate student, 
Cornell University, Dr. Lachner has undertaken a study of the system- 
atics of the American barbeled minnows. They visited the Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute in March and prepared more than 5,000 speci- 
mens of fishes for exchange with tlie U.S. National Museum. 

Associate curator Victor G. Springer has expanded his studies on 
sharks, completing revisions of three genera. During the year, he 
visited Stanford University and the British and Paris INIuseums where 



he studied blennioid fish types and other specmiens, bringing close to 
completion a revision of the genus Entomaorodus. He has begun an 
osteological study of blennioid fishes and has accumulated data and 
material for revisions of several genera. 

Associate curator William R. Taylor continued his study of the 
families Ariidae and Aspreclinidae for the publication, "Fishes of the 
Western North Atlantic," and of the genus Noturus. He has developed 
new techniques in the preparation of specimens for osteological study 
that involve the use of solutions of the enzyme trypsin buffered with 
sodium borate. This treatment, which removes the muscle tissue, has 
proved to be effective in making both preserved and fresh specimens 
translucent — the connective tissue, cartilage, bones, viscera, and major 
nerves remaining. 

Associate curator Stanley H. Weitzman completed a study of two 
genera of Asiatic minnows, three manuscripts dealing with South 
American catfishes, and a study of the osteology and relationships 
of the characid subfamilies Lebiasininae and Erythrininae. He began 
osteological studies on the isospondylous oceanic fishes of two other 
families of fishes ( Astronesthidae and Gonostomatidae) .

Eesearch associate J. A. F. Garrick returned to Victoria University, 
Wellington, New Zealand in November and is continuing his world 
revision of carcliarhinid sharks. During May 1964 he visited Australia 
to study specimens of sharks that were not available in museums of 
Europe, America, or Africa. When completed, this critical revision 
of carcliarhinid sharks will be the first ever attempted. 

Marine Invertebrates. — Curator Donald F. Squires continued his 
investigations on southern ocean corals. Considerable progress has 
been made in this study, supported by the National Science Founda- 
tion, and facilitated by the assistance of Mr. Ian W. Keyes, senior 
paleontological technician, New Zealand Geological Survey, who 
worked as research assistant to Dr. Squires during the year. INIuch of 
the preliminary compilation of data for a study of the evolution and 


distribution of New Zealand Tertiary and modern corals lias been com- 
pleted. In joint authorship, they have finished a review of the corals 
of the New Zealand shelf. During the year, a study of the biomechan- 
ics of the scleractinian coral Manioina areolata was completed, as were 
several other studies of fossil and Kecent corals. Continued progress 
was made on the monographic studies of the deep-water corals of the 
family Micrabaciidae and on the complex group of species comprising 
the "lacerate Flahellum^'' From December to February, Dr. Squires 
was a participant on the New Zealand Oceanographic Institute cruise 
"Macquarie Gap" which made geological and biological studies in the 
area of the Campbell Plateau and the Subantarctic Islands of New 
Zealand. Visits were also made during the year to the Museum of 
Comparative Zoology and the American Museum of Natural History 
where types were examined and from which specimens of deep-water 
corals were obtained for further study. 

Associate curator Thomas E. Bowman completed an account of an 
arostrate population of the planktonic calanoid copepod Acartia lillje- 
horgii, from St. Lucia, West Indies. He described a new genus and 
sjDecies of cirolanid isopod from Madison Cave, Va., the first troglodytic 
cirolanid to be found in the United States outside of Texas ; completed 
the description of a new anthurid isopod from the Caguanes Caves of 
Cuba ; and described a new mysid crustacean, abundant in Lake Pont- 
chartrain, La. With L. J. Lancaster, he prepared a description of a 
bloom of the planktonic blue-green alga Skujaella^ from the Tonga 
Islands. Work was begun on an account of pelagic amphipods of the 
family Hyperiidae from the northeastern Pacific. 

Associate curator Charles E. Cutress, Jr., continued his studies of 
several families of anemones. During most of April and May, he 
collected marine materials in Hawaii and coastal California, for docu- 
menting future exhibits in the museum. Lie was accompanied by 
Mr. Kjell Sandved who acted as official photographer. Following 
this trip, Mr. Cutress visited the Friday Harbor Laboratory of the 
University of Washington where he engaged in studies to clarify the 
taxonomy of the swimming anemones Stoiwphia. 

Associate curator Raymond B. Manning, who had joined the staff of 
the division in June 1963, in September studied stomatopod crustacean 
specimens in the American Museum of Natural History, the Vanderbilt 
Marine Museum on Long Island, the Museum of Comparative Zoology, 
the Yale Peabody Museum, and the Academy of Natural Sciences of 
Philadelphia. In May 1964, Dr. Manning joined a research team from 
the Institute of Marine Science, University of Miami, for a 20-day 
offshore scientific cruise in the Gulf of Guinea. Following the cruise 
he spent several days collecting inshore marine invertebrates near 
Dakar, Senegal, before visiting natural history museums in Paris, 


Leiden, and London to stndy types of stomatopod crnstaceans. During 
the year, Dr. Manning finislied most of a manuscript revising tlie 
stomatopods of the western Atlantic, collaborated with L. B. Holthuis 
of the Rijksmuseum van ISTatuurlijke Historie, in Leiden, on a contri- 
bution on the stomatopods for the "Treatise of Invertebrate Paleontol- 
ogy," and completed two additional manuscripts dealing with these 

Associate curator Marian H. Pettibone carried on preliminary work 
with a large collection of polychaete worms from the Canadian Arctic, 
collected by E. H. Grainger. She continued her long-range study of 
the polychaete worms from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Chesapeake 
Bay, completed a revision of the polychaete family Pilargidae, includ- 
ing a description of three new species from Virginia, and conducted 
further work on the Paraonidae, including the preparation of descrip- 
tions of two new species from Virginia and Florida. 

Museum specialist Henry B, Roberts continued his research on 
Recent and fossil crabs. In addition to studying a new species of crab 
from the Miocene of Virginia, he completed a description of a new 
genus of Cretaceous crab, and has compiled a checklist and bibliog- 
raphy of the Pleistocene decapods of the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal 

Research associate Waldo L. Schmitt continued his studies on the 
American commensal crabs, family Pinnotheridae, and completed the 
revision and updating of a popular account of the "Crustaceans" pre- 
pared several decades ago for the original Smithsonian Scientific 
Series. As an associate editor for biology for the Antarctic Research 
Series, sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, he has been 
encouraging systematists to undertake monographic reports to be 
followed by handbooks dealing with the invertebrate marine famia of 

David L. Pawson joined the staff as associate curator of marine 
invertebrates May 20, 1964. His field of special interest is echino- 
derms, in particular the echinoids and holothuroids of the sub- 

Mollusks. — Curator Harald A. Rehder continued work on a study 
of the marine mollusks of Polynesia. Pie sorted and arranged the 
material he gathered in Tahiti last year, identified and studied speci- 
mens from Tonga and K[awaii, and initiated a bibliography of Pol}^- 
nesian marine malacology. Notable progress was made on his mono- 
graph of the Harpidae and on a study of certain species of the family 

Associate curator Joseph P. E. Morrison has continued his research 
of the brackish water mollusks of New Caledonia, studying collections 
of the family Mehimpichie in tlio Aradomy of Natural Sciences of

Philadelphia, and a collection gathered by him in 1960-61. His work 
on the brackish water moUusks of the Gulf States was continued, and 
he completed a manuscript describing new species of the families 
Hydrobiidae, Pyramiclellidae, and Mactridae, from Louisiana. 

Associate curator Joseph Rosewater spent three months as a partici- 
pant in the International Indian Ocean Expedition Auxiliary Cruise 
"A" aboard the R/V Te Vega. A large collection of mollusks was 
made from the shores of western Malaysia and Thailand and from 
the Mentawai Islands southwest of Sumatra, Indonesia. A brief visit 
Avas also made to the British Museum (Natural History) where he 
studied types of the family Littorinidae. He is continuing studies of 
Indo-Pacific mollusks, especially the families Littorinidae and Tri- 
dacnidae ; a monograph of the latter is nearly complete. A taxonomic 
study of the subfamily Periplomatinae has also been initiated.

On July 1, 1963, the division of insects was separated from the de- 
partment of zoology and became the department of entomology. The 
five divisions in the department are : Neuropteroids, Lepidoptera, Cole- 
optera, Myriapoda and Arachnida, and Hemiptera. 

Chairman J. F. Gates Clarke conducted intensive field studies of 
Microlepidoptera on the island of Rapa in French Polynesia from 
September 1 to December 15. In addition to providing a basis for 
a better understanding of Micronesian Microlepidoptera, it was hoped 
that the collections would indicate substantial relationship to these 
insects in JSTew Zealand, southern South America, and South Africa. 
The food plants of more than half of the approximately 75 species 
collected were determined, and Mrs. Clarke reared in the field 760 
specimens, of which the immature stages were preserved for study. 

Dr. Clarke continued his studies of several genera and families of 
Neotropical Microlepidoptera and preparation has continued of ma- 
terials which will be used for critical studies of Micronesian Lepi- 
doptera — a long-range project. 

Lepidoptera. — Associate curator Donald R. Davis continued his 
studies of the Western Hemisphere bagworms (Psychidae) ; his re- 
vision of the group was published. Dr. Davis has also completed 
a revision, employing statistical analyses, of the Yucca moths (Pro- 
doxidae) of the Western Hemisphere. During July and August he, 
with Dr. Duckworth, engaged in field research on the latter group. 
In preparation for revisionary studies of two insect families. Dr. 
Davis studied the collection at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, 
and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. 


Associate curator W. Donald Duckworth advanced toward his goal 
of a world monograph of the family Stenomidae with the publica- 
tion of one paper on a new Brazilian moth species and the preparation 
of three other papers. In the Neotropical area alone are more than 
1100 species of this large family whose taxonomy, evolution, and geo- 
graphic affinities interest Dr. Duckworth. In the course of his studies 
of the family with respect to these subjects, types from Vienna and 
Munich, as well as many others which are more accessible, are being 
or have been examined; field study was undertaken jointly with Dr. 
Davis to northeastern Mexico, where important distributional data 
were gathered ; and in April and May Stenomidae were studied and 
collected in the Panama Canal Zone. 

William D. Field, associate curator, continued his revision of the 
butterfly genus Vanessa and of the lycaenid genus Calycopis. In July 
he gathered significant distributional data and specimens in the moun- 
tains of New England. 

Coleoptera. — Curator O. L. Cartwright was in London at the end 
of the year to study type specimens at the British Museum (Natural 
History) in connection with his continuing research on the scarab 
beetles of the Bahamas and of Micronesia. 

Water beetles of the Neotropics continue as associate curator Paul J. 
Spangler's special interest. In July and August he spent seven weeks 
in Mexico and the Southwestern States collecting valuable materials 
for his studies. In the area of Mexico where the Nearctic and Neo- 
tropical faunas are contiguous and intermingled, most collections are 
useful for evaluating the effects of this overlapping; it is significant 
to note that here Dr. Spangler recorded six genera for the first time 
for Mexico and at least twenty species new to science. Previously un- 
known data with respect to the immature forms of most species col- 
lected were obtained, and many individuals of the rare semiaquatic 
beetle family Georyssidae were taken. He has also continued his 
research on the adult and immature stages of the water beetles of 
Puerto Rico and with Mr. Hugh Leech, California Academy of Sci- 
ences, he is engaged in a joint revision of the genus Hydrocliara. Dr. 
Spangler also contributed significantly to the collections by his use 
of a battery of Berlese Funnels, which permit the operator to collect 
minute insects from decaying leaves. More than 3,000 insects were 
obtained by use of this apparatus by Dr. Spangler and in the Protura 
alone, the national collections were nearly tripled during the past year. 

Myriapoda and Arachnida. — Curator Ralph E. Crabill, Jr., con- 
centrated iiiosi of liis aHciilion on a general re>'ision of (lie order 
Geo])liil(>iiH)r|>lia, bis sliidy (if llic chiloixxl fauiiae o\ New Zealand 
and Austi'alia lias i)r()gi'essed, and he is prosenlly reviewing generic 
and familial delimitations, which is possible only after thorough study 


of type species. To accomplish this end he has visited insect collections 
at Harvard University, in Munich, and in London. 

Neuropteroids. — The caddis flies (Trichoptera) continued to at- 
tract the research attention of associate curator Oliver S. Flint, Jr., 
and he published or completed several papers on Nearctic members 
of the group. Dr. Flint has begun to devote increasingly large parts 
of his research to the Neotropical Trichoptera and two papers on 
species of this region were published or completed this year. At the 
beginning of the year Dr. Flint collected and studied in the field on 
Jamaica, Dominica, St. Lucia, and Grenada; the first collections of 
Trichoptera in the Lesser Antilles resulted from this trip. From April 
through June he spent in field studies on Dominica as a participant 
in the Bredin-Archbold-Smithsonian biological survey of that island. 

Hetniptera. — Dr. Richard C. Froeschner joined the staff as asso- 
ciate curator in charge of Hemiptera on August 26, 1963.

Chairman Jason E. Swallen continued his investigations of the 
grasses of southern Brazil, and published two papers, the first on the 
Gramineae, in "Vegetation and Flora of the Sonoran Desert," by 
Forrest Shreve and Ira L. Wiggins, and the second on new species of 
Digitaria and Trichachne. In September and October he visited South 
Africa at the invitation of the National Botanic Gardens of South 
Africa for the Golden Jubilee Celebration of the Gardens. The cele- 
bration included over a month's tour of South Africa, and afforded 
an excellent opportunity for selective collecting to obtain a number of 
species new to the U.S. National Herbarium. 

Phanerogams. — Curator Lyman B. Smith continued his studies in 
the Bromeliaceae and in the flora of Brazil. In collaboration with 
The George Washington University, he supervised the completion of 
a master's thesis on the Apocynaceae of Burma by Ma Mya Bwin and a 
doctoral thesis on Ilex in North America and the Guayana Highland 
by Gabriel Edwin ; both papers were based largely on material in the 
National Herbarium. 

Associate curator Velva E. Eudd continued her work on the papilio- 
noid legumes of Mexico, bringing the manuscript of part I to comple- 
tion. Dr. Eudd also continued her research on the myrmecophilous 
acacias of Mexico and Central America and on the Leguminosae of the 
Yucatan Peninsula, and began monographic studies on the tribe 
Dalbergieae. In connection with her studies in the Leguminosae, she 

744-993—64 7 


visited the herbarium of the Institute de Biologia in Mexico City, and 
in September attended the Second Mexican Botanical Congress in 
San Luis Potosi. 

Associate curator John J. Wurdack continued his review of neo- 
tropical Melastomataceae, with special emphasis on collections from 
southern Ecuador and northern Peru. In connection with this work 
and with his studies on the flora of the Guayana Highland, Dr. 
Wurdack visited the New York Botanical Garden in June and Novem- 
ber. Eecently he undertook the preparation of the Melastomataceae 
for the "Flora de Venezuela,'' a project involving over 700 species. 

Associate curator Stanwyn G. Shetler continued his biosystematic 
and monographic studies of North American Campanulu^ with special 
emphasis on the Harebell Complex (C. rotimdifolia and related spe- 
cies). Also continuing were floristic and phytogeographic studies of 
the Alaskan flora, with emphasis on the Seward Peninsula, the south 
slope of the Brooks Range, and the Pribilof Islands. Between June 
17 and August 31 he spent six weeks collecting plants in the Brooks 
Range, Alaska. 

Dr. Wallace R. Ernst joined the staif July 29, 1963, as associate cura- 
tor of phanerogams. During the years he completed a manuscript on 
the genus Eschscholzia in the South Coast Ranges of California, and 
with Dr. H. J. Thompson of the University of California at Los An- 
geles, one on the pollination patterns and the taxonomy of the genus 
Eucnide. Dr. Ernst began a research project with Dr. A. C. Smith 
toward a flora of Fiji with studies of the Araliaceae and Guttiferae. 
In August he attended the AIBS meetings at Amherst, Mass., where 
his joint paper v/ith Dr. H. J. Thompson won an award in taxonomy. 
On April 1, Dr. Ernst left for three months to participate in the 
Bredin-Archbold-Smithsonian biological survey of Dominica, British 
West Indies. 

Associate curator Dan H. Nicolson, who joined the staff January 5, 
1964, continued twin projects begun before coming to the Smithsonian, 
a preparation of scripts for all genera of Araceae for the "Index 
Nominum Genericorum," and a revision of the genus Aglaonema 
(Araceae). In early May, with Stanwyn Shetler and David Lellin- 
ger, he made a reconnaissance visit to the Great Smoky Mountains Na- 
tional Park for the Smithsonian exliibits program. 

Research associate Jose Cuatrecasas, concentrated on the prepara- 
tion of a revision of Colombian Compositae of some 800 species. Re- 
search associate Kittie F„ Parker, continued her monographic studies 
of several genera of American Compositae. 

Grasses. — ^Associate curator Thomas R. Soderstrom participated in 
the New York Botanical Garden expedition to the Williehnina Moun- 
tains, Surinam, from June to October. Before joining the expedition 


party, he spent nine days in Trinidad collecting and studying the 
grasses of the island. With Dr. Henry Decker, Ohio Wesleyan Uni- 
versity, he published a paper on Sioallenia^ a new name for the Cali- 
fornian genus Ectosperma^ and another on ReederochJoa^ a new genus 
of dioecious grasses from Mexico. His studies of some collections of 
British Guiana grasses resulted in the description of six new species, 
to be published in the Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden. 

Eesearch associate F. A. McClure, continued his studies relating 
to the redefinition of the genera of the Bambusoideae, especially the 
bamboos of the Old World. A taxonomic paper, giving subgeneric 
status under the genus Thamnocalmnus to two species of hitherto 
uncertain taxonomic position is being prepared under joint author- 
ship with W. C. Lin of the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute. 

Ferns. — Curator C. V. Morton continued his studies of the ferns of 
tropical America, especially an account of the genus Blechnum in 
Brazil, based mostly on the large collections made by Father Raulino 
Reitz in southern Brazil. He continued his study of the photographs 
he made of fern types in European herbaria; the work of labeling the 
duplicates is being continued under a new grant from the National 
Science Foundation. Mr. Morton spent three weeks in July in libra- 
ries in London and Paris checking bibliographic information for this 
work, and five days in April at Harvard University and the New York 
Botanical Garden. Jointly with Mr. Lellinger, he prepared a treat- 
ment of the genus Asplenium in Venezuela, based largely on the exten- 
sive collections assembled from the Guayana Highlands region by the 
New York Botanical Garden and the Chicago Natural History Mu- 
seum ; this work will be published in the Memoirs of the New York 
Botanical Garden. 

Associate curator David B. Lellinger, who joined the staff August 
26, 1963, continued with liis revisions of the genera Mildella and 
Cheilo'plecton^ began a study of Pterozonmm^ and accumulated ma- 
terials for revisions of two groups of species in the genus Gheilanthes. 
He spent brief periods in research at the herbaria of Duke University, 
North Carolina State College, Michigan State University, and the 
University of Michigan. 

Cryptogams. — Curator Mason E. Hale continued monographic 
studies on the lichen genus Parmelia^ with special reference to sub- 
genus Xcvntlio}KirineUa. Elizabeth J. Denison, supported by National 
Science Foundation funds, assisted with technical problems from 
January to May 1961. Dr. Hale made a five weeks' trip to the major 
European herbaria to examine and to test chemicall}^ type specimens 
and general herbarium collections. Field studies of populations of 
Xanthoparmelia were conducted in Minnesota, New England, and the 


southern Appalachians. A large manuscript on subgenus Amphi- 
gymnia and a summary of subgenus Parmelia are now in press. 

Associate curator Harold E. Robinson conducted field exploration 
for bryophytes during three months in Dominica as a member of 
the Bredin-Archbold-Smithsonian biological survey. He continued 
floristic studies of the bryophytes of tropical America, especially 
southern Brazil and Venezuela. 

Associate curator Paul Conger continued studies on a large collec- 
tion of British, Australian, and New Zealand Antarctic diatoms, both 
plankton and sediments. He completed a manuscript on a new species 
of epibenthic marine diatom from Honolulu harbor, Hawaii. 

Associate curator Richard E. Norris, before resigning in August, 
completed two cruises on the R/V Anton Bruun in the Indian Ocean 
and made a number of collections of marine algae and plankton, 
which are now being processed at the Smithsonian Oceanographic 
Sorting Center. 

Plant Anatomy. — Curator William L. Stern was on leave from the 
Smithsonian Institution, having been transferred temporarily to the 
International Civil Service so that he could spend a year in the Philip- 
pines as a Forestry Officer with the Food and Agriculture Organiza- 
tion of the United Nations. 

Associate curator Richard H. Eyde completed a comparative ana- 
tomical investigation of the flower in Garry a^ an American genus of 
debated affinities, concluding that the closest allies are the Old World 
cornaceous genera Aucuba and Gnsel'mia. He continued research on 
the comparative anatomy of fossil and modern members and allies of 
the dogwood family, with emphasis on the genera Corokia, Mastlxia., 
and Alan gilt ?n.

A plan to divide the department of geology into t^yo departments, 
mineral sciences and paleobiology, was approved on August 20, 1963, 
and the reorganization became effective on October 15, 1963. The 
diversity of disciplines m the old geology department made the parti- 
tion logical and desirable. The purely physical subjects of mineralogy, 
petrology, and meteorites are now separated from the biological sub- 
jects of paleontology and ecology. The department of mineral sci- 
ences consists of three divisions, mineralogy, meteorites, and petrology. 

In hall of fossil mammals, fourth and last of series of murals by artist 
Jay H. Matternes depicts an assemblage of Pliocene animals. 


The department of paleobiology consists of four divisions: Inverte- 
brate paleontology, vertebrate paleontology, paleobotany, and sedi- 

Dr. G. A. Cooper, chairman of the department of paleobiology, in 
collaboration witli E. E. Grant of the U.S. Geological Survey, nearly 
completed the manuscript on the Permian brachiopods of the Glass 
Mountains, Tex. In March and April Dr. Cooper went to New Mex- 
ico with Dr. J. T. Dutro of the Geological Survey, to study local 
Devonian materials. 

Paleobotany. — Associate curator Francis M. Hueber has continued 
his investigations of the Lower Devonian flora of the Gaspe and north- 
ern New Brunswick regions of Canada. Preparations of petrifac- 
tions collected during August from one locality near Dalhousie, New 
Brunswick, have helped clarify certain anatomical details of a pro- 
fern which is being studied cooperatively with Dr. Harlan P. Banks 
of Cornell University and with Dr. Suzanne Leclercq of the Univer- 
site de Liege, Belgium. The final details have been obtained for com- 
pleting the redescription and reconstruction of Psilophyton pjunceps 
var. ornatuTn; the results of these findings demonstrate the need for 
broad taxonomic changes among the fossil Psilopsida. New re- 
ports of genera heretofore known only from European Devonian de- 
posits are being established by the continued laboratory investigation 
of the material. Excellent preparations of petrified materials have 
been made by museum technician James P. Ferrigiio. Dr. Hueber's 
studies, in collaboration with Mr. Leeds M. Carluccio and Dr. Har- 
lan P. Banks of Cornell University, of fossil plants presently referable 
to the genera Archaeopteris and CaUixylon are soon to be published. 
This investigation has pointed up the need for a revision of the genus 

Dr. Walter H. Adey, who specializes in Tertiary and Recent Marine 
algae, joined the staff as associate curator of paleobotany on June 30, 

Invertebrate Paleontology. — Curator Richard S. Boardman and 
museum specialist George T. Farmer completed their collecting of 
the bryozoan fauna of the Middle Ordovician of Oklahoma. ]\Ir. 
Farmer is using a part of the fauna for a doctoral dissertation and has 
made good progress on its preparation. 

Research assistant Dr. John Utgaard is working in cooperation with 
Dr. Boardman on a revision of the genera of the Paleozoic Bryozoa. 
Two manuscripts luwe been completed and Dr. Utgaard has made good 
progress on the Cyclostomata. 

Museum specialist Frederick (\)llier lias completed the tedious prej)- 
aration, working on his own time for a master's thesis on the rhombo- 
poroid l^ryo/oa, of some Middle Devonian strata of New York State: 


and lie has started collecting biometrical data for a taxonomic treat- 

Associate curator Porter M. Kier spent June and part of July study- 
ing the living habits of echinoids in the Florida Keys. Dr. Kier, ac- 
companied by Dr. Norman Sohl of the U.S. Geological Survey, used 
scuba diving equipment to observe species distribution relative to bot- 
tom conditions and depth. Large collections were made for com- 
parative investigations, and individuals were studied both in their 
natural environment and in aquaria. Dr. Kier continued these in- 
vestigations in the month of April, diving off Dominica as part of 
the Bredin-Archbold-Smithsonian biological survey of that island. 
Scuba and other diving techniques were employed to make collections 
and note environmental relationships of the echinoid populations. 
Museum investigations enabled Dr. Kier to complete a major manu- 
script on the evolutionary trends in Paleozoic echinoids. 

Associate curator Richard Cifelli continued his studies of the dis- 
tribution and abundance of Recent planktonic Foraminifera. These 
studies are being pursued in relationship to the circulation and general 
hydrography of the north Atlantic. In a concurrent investigation, 
in the equatorial Atlantic, Dr. Cifelli is making an analysis of sub- 
marine cores which is concerned with problems of correlation of the 
cores by Foraminifera and paleoclimatic interpretations. In a joint 
study with Dr. T. G. Gibson of the U.S. Geological Survey, Dr. Cifelli 
is conducting investigations of the stratigraphic succession of Tertiary 
planktonic Foraminifera in the coastal plains of eastern United States. 
Dr. Cifelli completed two papers now in press, one on planktonic 
Foraminifera from the western Atlantic and the other on concentra- 
tion techniques of separating shelled organisms from plankton. 

Associate curator Erie G. Kauffman has continued investigations of 
the evolution and taxonomy of Cretaceous pelecypods in North Amer- 
ica, in particular the Inoceraminae and Ostreidae. Dr. Kauffman, 
accompanied by Mr. G. R. Paulson, made a two months' collecting trip 
to the mid-continent and eastern Rocky Mountains. More than 25 
detailed stratigraphic sections were measured and an estimated 4,000 
specimens were collected ; these latter will be of great value in distribu- 
tional and evolutionary studies, as well as for determining the bio- 
stratigraphic utility of the species. Also, studies have been started on 
the Cretaceous pelecypods of the Caribbean area. Two weeks in March 
were spent with Dr. Norman F. Sohl, collecting at localities in Puerto 
Rico. A silicified fauna was collected which contains many new species 
apparently endemic to the Caribbean area. A review of the Jurassic 
and Cretaceous Ostreidae of Saudi Arabia has been started; the 
Pholadomyidae from this fauna are now under study. Dr. Kauffman 
completed four manuscripts which have been approved for publication. 


Associate curator Martin A. Buzas joined the staff June 1963. His 
research activities involve distributional studies of Eecent and late 
Tertiary smaller Foraminif era. Dr. Buzas completed manuscripts on 
the Foraminif era from a late Pleistocene clay near Waterford, Maine, 
and a distributional study of the species of Foraminifera in Long 
Island Sound. The New York study included analyses of many en- 
vironmental conditions, such as sediment particle size and chemical 
properties of the water. His most recent investigation is a canonical 
analysis of four species of Elphidium. Eight characters were meas- 
ured on series of specimens and the statistics programmed for evalua- 
tion by means of a multivariate technique which utilizes a high-speed 
electronic computer. 

Dr. Eichard H. Benson joined the staff as associate curator of in- 
vertebrate paleontology on June 30, 1964. His area of specialization 
is tlie Ostracoda of the Tertiary. 

Vertebrate Paleontology. — Curator C. L. Gazin completed his 
morphologic study of the Early Eocene condylarthran mammal Menis- 
cotliermm. This has included a detailed re^dew of nearly the entire 
skeleton, which is compared with tliose of other condylarths and 
the hyracoids. The latter were once thought to be fairly closely 
related to Meniscotheriurti^ but the resemblances are now regarded as 
primarily adaptive. A beginning was also made in study of a fauna 
from a new Paleocene horizon in the Evanston formation of south- 
western Wyoming, and of a recently prepared endocranial cast of the 
Middle Eocene Bridger primate SmUodectes. 

In connection with his condylarthran studies, Dr. Gazin visited the 
Chicago Natural History Museum in February for further evidence on 
the ecology of M eniscofherhim as interpreted from details of associ- 
ated biota, and in June again visited Princeton and Yale Universities 
and the American IMuseum to wind up details of the morphologic study, 
under funds provided by the National Science Foundation. 

Field work by the curator earlier in the year was carried on prin- 
cipally in the Middle Eocene Bridger formation of southwestern 
Wyoming. Much of the time was devoted to a careful search for 
smaller mammals in the upper part of the formation, as exposed in the 
up[)er basin of Sage Creek, but with some attention to the lower levels 
in the Grizzly Buttes and to the north of Cedar JNIountain. Occasional 
trips were made to profitable localities of earlier years in the Paleocene 
and Early Eocene of adjacent basins. Franklin L. Pearce, chief of the 
laboratory of vertebrate ])aleont()logy, assisted him during the early 
part of the field season but illness prevented his remaining throughout. 
At the close of the year Di-. Gazin and ^fr. Pearce dei)arted for field 
work in New Mexico and Wyoming. 


During September and October associate curator D. H. Dunkle, 
accompanied by museum technician G. B. Sullivan, conducted field 
work in northwestern Ohio, the area around Council Bluils, Iowa, and 
the Manzano Mountains of central New Mexico. Their collections and 
stratigraphic observations will permit important additions to and 
revisions of the known paleoichthyological faunas of the Middle De- 
vonian silica shale of Ohio and several Late Paleozoic horizons of the 
mid-continent and Rocky Mountain regions. The New Mexico occur- 
rence investigated is of especial interest ; it is practically the lone source 
in North America of a varied marine assemblage of well-preserved 
fishes, invertebrates, and plants from the Permo-Carboniferous 

Aided by a study trip to Pittsburgh and Cleveland, excellent prog- 
ress was accomplished in the preparation and description for publica- 
tion of a new paleoniscoid fish from the Upper Devonian Ohio shales 
and of the fishes of the Middle Devonian silica shale. 

In September associate curator Nicholas Hotton III left Washington 
for field work in Africa. In addition to collecting in the Permo-Tri- 
assic beds of the Karroo region in South Africa, which has yielded a 
variety of mammal-like reptiles, he has been carrying on during a 
greater part of the year a detailed stratigraphic study of the Beaufort 
series with a view toward a better understanding of the distribution 
and ecology of the forms. At the end of this year he had left Africa 
for Europe to study at certain of the leading museums. 

Associate curator Clayton E. Ray, who joined the staff on December 
18, 1963, has continued his studies, carried on previously at the Univer- 
sity of Florida, of fossil and modern terrestrial vertebrates, especially 
rodents of the Antillean region. Since his arrival he has completed 
reports of a new species of capromyid rodent and an undescribed 
miniature ground sloth, both from a cave in the Dominican Republic. 
He also continued his studies, initiated in Florida, of the North Amer- 
ican Quaternary fauna, including that of a Blancan fauna from 
Florida, the first in eastern United States. 

In April, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Dr- Ray 
gave at Shorter College, Rome, Ga., a lecture on Pleistocene animals. 
At that time he visited a Pleistocene fossil locality. Near the close 
of the year, in the vicinity of Puebla, Mexico, Dr. Ray conducted a 
field investigation of Pleistocene occurrences in collaboration with an 
NSF-sponsored archeological party from the Peabody Museum in 
Cambridge, Mass. 

Dr. Remington Kellogg, research associate, continued his studies of 
the Tertiary Cetacea and completed a report on the skeleton of one of 
the larger Calvert Miocene whalebone whales. Satisfactory progress 


was made on the evaluation and identification of some of Cope's 
cetacean types which had been based on imperfectly preserved verte- 
brae. Comparative studies of several types of Miocene mysticetes are 
being pursued.

Mineral Sciences 

Department chairman George Switzer completed the annual review 
of the diamond industry and, with Roy S. Clarke, Jr., Helen "Worthing, 
and John Sinkankas, completed a manuscript on "'Fluorine in 

Associate curator Paul E. Desautels began an investigation of a suite 
of rare uranium minerals from a new locality in jNIexico, and completed 
a study of one of them, sklodowskite, a hydrous magnesium uranyl 


silicate. Mr. Desautels addressed mineral societies in Tucson, Phila- 
delphia, New York, Baltimore, Toronto, and Wasliingion, D.C. 

John S. White, Jr., museum technician, nearly completed a study of 
the rare mineral plattnerite, oxide of lead, from several new localities 
in Arizona and Mexico. 

Associate curator E. P. Henderson completed two manuscripts — one, 
a study of the liexahedrite meteorite group, and the second, a discussion 
of the legendary and probably nonexistent Port Orford, Oreg., meteor- 
ite. A study of the metallography of the Bogou, Upper Volt a, iron 
meteorite was also completed. 

During the year Mr. Henderson spent four months in the field in 
Australia with Dr. Brian Mason of The American Museum of Natural 
History, and Dr. E. O. Chalmers of The Australian Museum. Meteor- 
ite material was collected from four well-known Australian craters, 
Henbury, Boxhole, Wolf Creek, and Dalgaranga. The Dalgety Downs 
meteorite was relocated and nearly 500 pounds of material recovered, 
and many fine tektite specimens were also collected. Exchanges ar- 
ranged during the stay in Australia, and on the return trip through 
the Middle East and Europe, have added a number of fine new speci- 
mens to the collection. 

In November 1963 Mr. Henderson was awarded the degree of Doctor 
'phUosophiae honoris causa by the University of Bern for his many 
contributions to the study of meteorites. 

Roy S. Clarke, Jr., continued his studies of chemical methods of 
meteorite analysis; minor element analyses of several iron meteorites 
are in progress. Investigation of an iron oxide corrosion product of a 
metal blade from the Freer Gallery collection, conducted in cooperation 
with R. J. Gettens and E. W. FitzHugh, proved that this ancient blade 
was fabricated from meteoritic iron. A complete chemical analysis of 
the mineral phosphophyllite from Bolivia was made. 

Tektite studies, particularly relating to the Martha's Vineyard and 
Georgia tektites, are continuing. Mr. Clarke attended the Second 
International Symposium on Tektites in Pittsburgh in September, and 
participated in the organization of a fruitful meeting of tektite re- 
search workers and representatives of the scientific statf of the Corning 
Glass Works held in Corning, New York in February. Henderson 
and Clarke visited the Georgia tektite area with Mr. Thomas E. Allen 
of Atlanta in March. 

In June 1964 a grant was received from the National xVeronautics 
and Space Administration to conduct studies of constituents, composi- 
tions, and textures of meteorites, and their bearing on theoretical

location among fifth-floor curatorial offices. 


Science and Technology 

Chairman Robert P. Multhauf was principally occupied with a 
study of the history of early chemistry, which was nearly complete 
at year's end. During the year Dr. Multhauf presented a paper on 
the use of calculating- machines in scientific work, and another on 
early theories of the nature of metals. 

Physical Sciences. — Curator Walter F. Cannon devoted his re- 
search time to a continuation of his studies of English scientists of 
the early 19th century. He prepared two papers for publication 
on the characteristics of physical science in the 19th century. A paper 
on the scientific work of William Whewell was prepared at the request 
of the editor of the Notes mid Records of the Royal Society and will 
be published in that journal. 

Uta C. Merzbach, associate curator, continued her investigations 
of the history of modern algebra, and began a detailed research proj- 
ect on the mathematics of Leibniz. 

Mechanical and Civil Engineering. — Curator Silvio A. Bedini 
toured tecluiical luiiscunis and other institutions of learning in Great 
Britain and continental European countries and ]n'esented lectures 
on iTtli-cciitnry o])(ical instrument makers ;it the Astrophysical Ob- 



servatory at Arcetri and at the Institato Nazionale della Ottica of 
the University of Florence, He was invited to present a paper on 
Giovanni de'Dondi at the University of Padua in October for the 
sexcentenary of the astrarium. He has completed a book entitled 
"Mechanical Universe" on the de'Dondi astrarium in collaboration 
with Francis K. Maddison of the Museum of the History of Science 
at Oxford University. This work, which is scheduled for publication 
during the present year, is the product of his research in north Italian 
archives during his tour of museums and will present a considerable 
amount of hitherto mistudied documentary material. 

During the past year Mr. Beclini also completed three more articles 
about antique scientific instruments in the national collections, one of 
which has already been published; a comprehensive investigation of 
the invention of the orrery, including study of an unrecorded instru- 
ment recently discovered in an American collection; an article on 
the evolution of science museums for the special museum issue of 
Technology and Gultwre; and a study of early Italian science museums 
for publication in Cultura e Scuola in Rome. In addition to these, 
Mr, Bedini has completed an article on Galileo's preoccupation with 
the measurement of time, which will form part of the /Saggl, the 
memorial volume of Galilean studies to be published by the Consiglio 
Nazionale delle Ricerche in Rome; a comparative study of Galileo's 
instruments for the memorial volume of Galilean studies to be pub- 
lished by Notre Dame University; and a paper about the craftsmen

vrh.0 produced the instruments used by Galileo, Avhicli will be pre- 
sented at the Symposium Internationale di Storia, in Florence and 
Pisa in September 1964. In progress is a biography on the Delia 
Volpaia, a family of engravers, sculptors, clock-makers, engineers and 
instrument-makers Avhich flourished in Florence during the IStli and 
16th centuries and which made a considerable contribution to science, 
technology, and the arts. 

In the section of light machinery and horology, associate curator 
Edwin A. Battison completed the first draft of a translation of Jacques 
Besson's Theatrum Instruinentarwiii et M achinamm from the 16th- 
century French with the assistance of summer intern Bruce H. Wliite. 
Since this work has not been previously available in English, this 
translation will be a significant contribution to the history of technol- 
ogy. Names of American patentees appearing on subject lists for a 
period of three years of the mid-19th century were added to an alpha- 
betical card file in progress, making a total of six years now completed. 

Associate curator Robert INI. Vogel in the section of heavy machinery 
and civil engineering, during the course of a study trip to the Midwest, 
conducted research on the develoi)men( of (he nniflow steam engine in 
tlie Ignited States. In addition io inter\i(^\viiia' numerous individuals 


who were instrumental in the introduction of tlie uniflow concept into 
American engineering practice prior to World War I, Mr. Vogel made 
a thorough search of the archives of the Skinner Engine Company, 
the leading manufacturer of this type of engine. 

Transportation. — Three trips to Spain were made by curator How- 
ard I. Chapelle in connection with the reconstruction of Columbus' 
/Santa Maria by a Barcelona shipyard for the New York World's 
Fair. At the same time he was able to accomplish research on Span- 
ish shipbuilding of the 18tli and early 19th centuries, especially with 
respect to American colonial shipbuilding and Spanish influence on 
their design. Mr. Chapelle has also completed about half the antici- 
pated work on his long-range project regarding the search for speed 
under sail. 

John H. White, Jr., associate curator, has concentrated on his proj- 
ect entitled ''Eepresentative Locomotives'' ; about 200 illustrations are 
now completed and about a third of the text in first draft. 

Museum specialist Donald Berkebile has nearly completed his re- 
search on the famous Liberty Truck of World War I. 

Electricity. — Curator Bernard S. Finn continued his research into 
the history of tliermoelectricity, with a view to publishing a source 
book of the important historical documents in the field. Information 
compiled from trips to European museums last year and to American 
museums this year will be used in an article characterizing the modern 
science museum. 

Over the past two years a large-scale effort has been made to visit 
colleges and universities to find objects for the collections. Toward 
this end Dr. Finn made a week's tour through South Carolina and 
Georgia, and Mr. Sivowitch had a fruitful two days in the Philadel- 
phia area. Partly as a result of this type of direct searching, the di- 
vision has received objects over the past year from fourteen of these 
institutions. Important large collections of material have been re- 
ceived from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Columbia 

Medical Sciences. — Dr. Sami Hamarneh revised a Bibliography of 
Medicine and Pharmacy in Medieval Islam for publication in mid- 
1961. He also studied the life and literary contributions of the 9tli 
century physician-philosopher Yaqub al-Kindi. Dr. Hamarneh ^^s- 
ited the University of Wisconsin to inspect and select pharmaceutical 
objects of historical significance.

Republican presidential campaign of 1896. 

Herbert R. Collins, assistant curator, continued his research on 
political campaign objects, presidential carriages and automobiles, 
and other artifacts associated with former American Presidents. 

Cultural History. — Curator C. Malcolm Watkins worked on two 
research projects — one, to record by means of text and photographs 
a series of 19th-century houses in northern California which reflect 
different eastern sources of inspiration; the other study is to record 
in photographs and on magnetic tape the traditional pottery-making 
techniques which have been practiced in Moore County, N.C. since the 
second half of the 18th century. 

Associate curator Rodris Roth has enlarged the scope of her study 
on the revival of colonial decorative styles in the 19th century and 
slie now has in preparation a monograph on the subject. She is also 
continuing her related study of furniture exhibited at the Phila- 
delphia Centennial Exhibition of 1876. 

Associate curator John N. Pearce and archeological aide Richard J. 
Muzzrole represented the Smithsonian at a second 10-day archeo- 
logical investigation of the site on which stood the New Bremen 
Glassworks in Frederick County, Md. The excavations revealed a

complex foundation structure indicating that this was a typical Ger- 
manic glass-house of the 18th century, Mr. Pearce also is continuing 
his research on a family of cabinetmakers; and he presented several 
lectures to historic organizations. 

Associate curator Cynthia Adams Hoover completed a paper, "The 
Slide Trumpet of the 19th Century," and is now working on a study 
of the life of John T. Norton, a slide trumpet player in the United 
States during the second quarter of the 19th century. In November 
she presented a paper, "Ornamentation in the Performance of 
Renaissance Music," before the Greater Washington area of the Amer- 
ican Musicological Society meeting at the Smithsonian. She was

preserved in the hall of everyday life in the American past. 

Philately and Postal History. — Associate curator Carl Sclieele, has 
continued his project of compiling- an outline history of Colonial 
Posts in North America. He has also presented talks to various phila- 
telic groups. 

Numismatics. — Curator V. Clain-Stefanelli completed a research 
study on a mission from Peru which came to Philadelphia to obtain 
modern equipment for the Lima mint, and the striking in 1855 of 
pattern coins for Peru. He has also submitted for publication a 
paper on "A New Quarter Shekel of the First Year of the Jewish 
War." Dr. Stefanelli was invited to be an official guest of Israel 
in June-July 196o to lecture and to study recently developed exhibit 
techniques. He also visited museums and private collections in Greece, 
The Netherlands, Belgium, and England to study coins and the history 
of coining techniques. 

Mrs. E. Clain-Stefanelli, associate curator, studied ancient Greek 
coinage of Messina at the British Museum, at Oxford and Cambridge, 
and in Tlie Hague. While in Israel in 1003 as an official guest of 
the goNcrnment she lectured on various topics.

Armed Forces History 

Chairman Mendel L. Peterson continued his investigation of two 
underwater archeological sites in Bermuda. 

Military History. — Curator Edgar M. Howell and museum special- 
ist Donald M. Kloster continued work on a critical and descriptive 
catalog of United States Army uniforms in the national collections. 
Mr. Kloster also completed a short manuscript on quartermaster badges 
in the Civil War. Mr, Howell completed a descriptive catalog of the 
World War I paintings of Harvey Dunn, and continued his study 
of eyewitness art of the Indian Wars. 

During the Third Congress of the Association of Museums of Arms 
and Military History, at which he was a delegate, associate curator 
Cracldock R. Goins, Jr., examined several weapons collections in 
England, Scotland, and Denmark. From these collections he obtained 
information pertaining to the Hall and Maynard breech-loading 

Naval History. — Curator Philip K. Lundeberg continued his re- 
search on the Continental gondola PMladelpliia and the Northern 
Campaign of 1TT6. Dr. Lundeberg secured valuable data from the 
Public Records Office in London relative to British plans for the in- 
vasion of New York, and additional illustrative material was obtained, 


including a reproduction of a contemporary watercolor sketch of the 
battle of Valcour Island by a British 18th-century combat artist. Ee- 
search was also launched on the memorandum book of Samuel Nutt, 
a British seaman who kept a most informative journal while serving 
on board HMS America, 1779-1783. 

Following publication of his paper "The German Naval Critique of 
the U-Boat Campaign, 1915-1918," which was awarded the Moncado 
Prize of the American Military Institute, Dr. Lundeberg initiated a 
study of the impact of technology upon the naval strategy of World 
War I, with particular emphasis on undersea warfare. 

Dr. Lundeberg has continued work on a catalog of the growing 
national collection of models of historic United States warships ; much 
of the information currently is being utilized for completion of the 
models themselves. Extensive research was carried out in connection 
with plans for models of the frigate Constitution and the torpedo boat 
Oushing, while a check list of selected ship plans in the divisional 
archives has been completed and will be shortly available to the public. 

During the year, associate curator Melvin H. Jackson completed 
the first draft of his maritime history of the Caribbean, 1793-1800, 
based partly on archival materials in Jamaica and Curasao. Further 
research is planned in France, The Netherlands, Spain and Great 
Britain. Closely allied to these studies is his search for objects and 
documents illustrative of the history of privateering. With the co- 
operation of the curator of transportation, Howard I. Chapelle, re- 
vised plans of the schooner Prince de Neufchatel have been com- 
pleted prex)aratory to the construction of a model of that handsome 

The history of the United States Revenue Marine continued as a 
major element of Dr. Jackson's research program. A reassessment 
of the battle of Negro Head in 1814, involving the Revenue cutter 
Eagle, H. M. Sloop Dispatch and H. M. Frigate Narcissus, was pub- 
lished in the spring of 1964. Wide-ranging research was conducted 
into tlie history of the celebrated Revenue cutter Bear in preparation 
for construction of a model representing that vessel as she appeared 
between 1880 and 1900. 

In the field of naval ordnance, Dr. Jackson undertook the com- 
pletion of a manuscript by the late Colonel Carey Tucker of Maryland 
on the history of muzzle-loading ordnance in the United States. Ad- 
ditional research was carried out in connection with construction of 
models of tlie 8-inch barbette battery of tlie USS Aflanfa, the 10-inch 
turret of the USS Manic luid a Terrier missile launclier, while data 
were collecled also for graphic representation of a Ki-inch naval 

Taking-off the hull lines of Continental gondola Philadelphia, in order 
to make a lines drawing, is a step in the process of preserving this 
famous vessel and building a model of it. 

Exhibits specialist Howard P. Hoffman of tlie clivison of naval his- 
tory conducted an exhaustive survey of the Continental gondola Phila- 
delphia, preparing- detailed plans of the vessel and her armament as 
the basis for construction of a large-scale model. He also conducted 
extended research on David Bushnell's submarine Turtle, draughting 
plans for a longitudinal-section model of that early submersible. 

Alan B, Albright, museum specialist, completed a paper on the 
preservation of organic materials recovered from underwater sites; 
publication is expected during the year. 

In July and August, Chairman Peterson and museum specialist 
Albright investigated two underwater sites in Bermuda through the 
cooperation of Mr. E. B. Tucker and the Government of Bermuda. 
During the diving season of 1964, a full-scale expedition will be 
mounted to be financed by two generous supporters of the underwater 
program. This expedition will investigate thoroughly the early Span- 
ish wreck site which was given a preliminary investigation last year. 
This site, believed to date from the 1560"s contains large portions of 
tlie ship's bottom timbers. Special measuring devices designed by 
Howard P. Hoffman and James Mahoney of the museum staff, modi- 
fied and built by William Sonntag of the buildings management de- 
partment, are expected to give accurate measurements of these early 
timber remains. The resulting drawings should be of importance 
to historians of naval architecture. 


Visiting investigators. — Assistance was provided to other Govern- 
ment agencies throughout the year. Among those so assisted were 
the National Institute of Heraldry, of the Office, Chief of Military 
History; Historical Division and Technical Intelligence, Office, Chief 
of Ordnance, Department of the Army ; Prints Division and General 
Reference Service, Library of Congress; Army and Air Force Branch, 
National Archives; and Division of Naval History and Records, De- 
partment of the Navy.
