ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR 

1940 

To the Trustees of Field Museum of Natural History: 

I have the honor to present a report of the operations of the 
Museum for the year ending December 31, 1940. Again I am 
privileged to report substantial successes in many lines of activity. 
Perhaps the principal emphasis has been placed upon the rehabili- 
tation of the building itself. For several years financial conditions, 
and the pressure of new construction and expansion have interfered 
to some extent with both ordinary and extraordinary maintenance 
of the splendid structure housing our collections. During the 
past year it has been possible to refinish completely the roof of the 
building, replacing all materials found to be defective or in a state 
of deterioration. The renewal of downspouts begun the year before 
was brought to completion. The exterior of the entire building was 
gone over carefully by tuckpointers so that all open cracks which 
might work to the detriment of the structure were cleaned, filled, 
and properly pointed. The terrace wall surrounding the building 
was also checked over in detail and all cracks filled and pointed. 
Many of the marble blocks which had been pushed out of position 
by repeated frosts were removed and reset. Excavations were 
made behind the walls for the purpose of removing and replacing 
any of the supporting structure in need of attention. Every effort 
has been made to perfect this work so that the building will be 
water tight and winter tight. A severe degree of wear and tear is 
normal in any building subjected to the climatic extremes charac- 
teristic of the Chicago area, particularly any structure in such 
an isolated and exposed location as the Museum's site. It is a 
source of great satisfaction, therefore, to realize that increased 
maintenance efforts have now checked the effects of these conditions, 
and that necessary repairs have been made or are well under way. 

The principal exhibition feature of note was the opening on 
July 31 of the new Hall of Babylonian Archaeology (Hall K), 
bringing to a culmination the work of about seventeen years, begin- 
ning with the Field Museum-Oxford University Expedition to Kish 
(1923-33). The central feature of this hall is the reconstruction of a 
gateway of the Sasanid period (Plate 15). A new departure is the instal- 
lation of a frieze composed of enlarged copies made from impressions 
of tiny cyhnder seals excavated at Kish. The cases, lighting, and

armnKemcnt of the hall are such as to brinj; it into complete harmony 
and unity. It tells a most interesting story of this ancient civilization 

Another outstanding new exhibit completed is a habitat jfroup 
representing? the "home life" of fur seals in the Pribilof Islands, 
Alaska < Plate 19 >. instalU^I in the Hall of Marine Mammals ' Hall N). 
Containing forty animals, including! huj^e "bulls," as the mature males 
are calle<l. the much smaller "cows" or females, and the "pups" 
or youn« seals, this ^oup is one of the larjjest exhibits in the Museum- 
and i)robably is the larjiest fur seal jn"oup in any museum. Twenty, 
four birds of species inhabiting the same environment as the seal.^ 
also appear in the proup. The animals were collected in 1937 by 
a special expe<lition conducted for the purpose by Staff Taxidermist 
r. J. Albrecht. who s]>ent more than two years after his return in 
preparation of the exhibit. 

romi)letion of another irnpDrumi new exhibit which has long 
been in preparation occurred! with the han^in^j of the last jrroup of 
"The World's FcmmI Plants' murals, painted by Mr. Julius Moessel, 
in the Hall of Pood Plants Hall 2') . Ki>jht of these were hung in 
the previous year, and the nine additional ones placed on the walls 
in 1910 complete the project. The paintings depict vividly the 
husbanding and transportation of the world's important vegetable 
pnxiucts. They are of interest not only for the story they tell, 
which co-onlinates with the exhibits of economically important 
j)lants and plant products in the hall, but also as decorative 
works of art i Plate 16). 

Detailed accounts of other new installations, and rLai.sLaiiaiioii.< 
of exhibits, will be found in the departmental sections of this Report 

The exhibition program at Field Mu.seum is approaching the 
point where a vastly difTerenl type of exhibit will come more and 
more into use. The plans for the construction of habitat groups of 
animals and birds of the world have almost come to complete 
reali7^tion. The next few years will bring about a change in exhibi- 
tion technique as new material is prepared. The emphasis will 
turn from "what things are " to the "how " and "why" of their bein^ 
.A pioneer in this program is the new exhibit, brought out during 
1940. entitled "What is a Bird? " This exhibit shows graphically 
the main features distinguishing the birds from mammals and 
reptiles, and gf>es into such detail as the presentation of cross sections 
of the tubular bones of birds, enlargecl sections illustrating the 
structure of feathers, and other diagrammatic and explanator. 
material. 



Introduction 191 

In connection with the opening of the Hall of Babylonian Archae- 
ology (Hall K) the Museum published an illustrated leaflet, Ancient 
Seals of the Near East, by Mr. Richard A. Martin, Curator of Near 
Eastern Archaeology. Likewise, when the last of the "World's 
Food Plants" murals was hung in Hall 25, a leaflet. The Story of 
Food Plants, by Dr. B. E. Dahlgren, Chief Curator of Botany, 
was published. 

On the radio Field Museum continued its educational work 
through the medium of a series entitled "How Do You Know?" 
given through the courtesy of the National Broadcasting Company 
over its Blue Network. I am especially indebted to Miss Judith 
Waller of N.B.C. and to the University Broadcasting Council for 
their fine co-operation and help in this series. It was our attempt 
not only to tell the listening public facts revealed by science, but to 
reveal as well the methods by which scientific conclusions are 
reached. Through this program it was hoped further to establish 
in the popular mind the authenticity of scientific research and the 
correctness of its resulting conclusions. 

Upon the invitation of the Zenith Radio Corporation, Field 
Museum presented a series of television programs. These, of course, 
were entirely experimental and were devised for the purpose of testing 
the effectiveness of television as an educational medium for trans- 
mitting scientific information. The results clearly indicate the 
tremendous value this medium will possess when it has been per- 
fected, as it will then carry to millions of children in schoolrooms, 
as well as to other audiences, a story of science which will reach 
them both aurally and visually at the same time. It will be possible 
to demonstrate chemical experiments or to exhibit poisonous reptiles 
without any danger whatever to the observer. It will be possible 
to show rare specimens, which should not be entrusted to the risks 
of even the best transportation facilities, to persons many hundreds 
of miles distant. The possibilities are, in fact, such as to challenge 
the imagination and best efforts of all who are interested in producing 
an enlightened citizenry. 

In the expansion of the educational work of Field Museum I am 
particularly pleased to commend the work of Miss Miriam Wood, 
Chief of the James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation 
for Public School and Children's Lectures, and of her entire staff 
of guide-lecturers. This small and effective group of workers is 
seizing every possible opportunity to promote progressive education 
through lectures in the Museum and in the classrooms of Chicago's

m'h«M)Is. through the printwi "Field Museum Sloric«/' and ihrouRh 
mime<>j;nii)he«l shoots of information or of questions and answers. 
In conjunction with the Chicaj^o Puhhc Sch(K)l HroadcistinR Council 
and radio stations assix-iateil with il, there has been developed a 
system of radio follow-ups whereby desijjnated represcntiitives from 
various soh(X)ls come to the Museum after the broadcast* and receive 
additional instruction in the subjects that were featured over the air. 
Mrs. liOota G. Thomas of the Raymond Foundation, as Chairman of 
the Chicago Museum Sch(X)ls Relations Committee of the Progressive 
Education A.HwxMation, has been instrumental in patherinji and 
co-ordinatinp material of preat value in the furthenince of co-opera- 
tive e<lurational endeavor. It is rejrretted on the part of the liay- 
mond Foundation that Mr. I/)ren P. WcxkIs, for two and one-half 
years a member of its stalT, was transferred to the Department of 
Zoolojo' at the end of the year. In comi)en.s;ition, however, Mr. 
WixKJs has assumed a pasition of increased responsibility and 
opportunity, as Assistant Curator of Fi.shes. 

Kqually important in the field of co-operation with the schools 
are the activities of the X. W. Harris Public School Kxtension, 
which had another successful year of operation. Resides continuinjf 
its regular bi-weekly .schedule of circulating traveling exhibits to 
nearly .')(X) schools antl other institutions through which an aggregate 
of .some r)00,0()() children are repeatedly reached even.- year, the 
Harris Kxten.sion has developeil new types of exhibits, new ser\-ices, 
and various technical improvements. How well this department 
of the Museum is fulfilling its functions was shown again in 1940, 
as in so many other years, by the many letters of commendation 
receiveti from teachers, principals, school oflicials, and large numbers 
of the .s<'hool children themselves. 

Due to troubled conditions in Kurope and A.sia. Field Mu.seum 
.sent out no exi>editions beyond the limits of the western hemi.sphere. 
It is essential, however, that research work be continued, and 
expeditions must ever be one of the es.sential activities of a great 
research mu.seum. F'xpeditions are neces.sar>- in order to procure 
examples of new and unknown .species; they are necessar>- to round 
out incomplete representations of plant and animal life, human 
cultures, or rocks and minerals, .so as to establish comprehen.sive study 
collections as a basis for reference and further determinations; 
they are necessar>- for the training of the newer and younger members 
of the scientific staff, becau.se a comprehen.sive knowledge of the 
subjects within the scope of a museum cannot be obtained alone 



Introduction 193 

from the study of books and isolated specimens. It is essential that 
the biologist have knowledge of plants and animals in their native 
surroundings; that the geologist have knowledge of rocks and 
minerals as they naturally occur; that the ethnologist and archae- 
ologist have knowledge from personal contact with contemporaneous 
civilizations or the buried relics which their predecessors left behind. 

This year, for the fourth time, Mr. Leon Mandel sponsored and 
led an expedition aboard his yacht, collecting birds, mammals, 
fishes, and reptiles that inhabit little-known islands and keys of 
the Caribbean — almost forgotten tiny possessions of the United 
States, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, and British Honduras, At the 
end of the year, Mr. Mandel was planning another expedition to 
the Galapagos Islands and the coast of Peru. The expedition was 
scheduled to sail early in January, 1941. 

The Magellanic Expedition of Field Museum, which began during 
the summer of 1939 its work in various parts of South America, 
including the southernmost tip of that continent, completed its 
work in 1940. Dr. Wilfred H. Osgood, Chief Curator of Zoology 
and leader of the party, returned in April, and Mr. Colin C. Sanborn, 
Curator of Mammals, returned in June. 

Details of these and other expeditions will be found in the 
departmental sections of this Report. 

From the Chicago Park District the Museum received during 
the year $58,130.33 as compared with $86,093.85 received in 1939. 

In my report for the year 1939 I stated that the legislative act, 
under which the Chicago Park District levied a tax to aid in the 
support of Field Museum of Natural History and other museums, 
was invalidated by the Illinois Supreme Court during the year. 

I am now happy to report that during the year 1940 an act 
was passed by the Legislature of the State of Illinois which corrected / 
the technicality which led to the nullification of the first act. The ■ 
first tax collections under the new act will become due in 1941. 

Credit for framing and passage of this act is due to one of our 
Trustees, Colonel Albert A. Sprague, and to Mr. Frederick C. Hack, 
Mr. Charles J. Calderini, Mayor Edward J. Kelly, and Mr. Robert 
J. Dunham, President of the Chicago Park District, without whose 
help and co-operation the matter could not have been brought to a 
satisfactory conclusion. 

Of considerable interest and importance is a change in the staff 
of Field Museum brought about by the retirement of Dr. Wilfred H.

the routine details of administerinj? a department. It ha« long been 
a matter of sincere rejfret on my part that the system in vojfue in 
our ureat mu.s«nmis has been such as to reward outstanding scientists 
by making them chief curators, in which jxjsiiion administrative 
duties largely interfere with the scientific re.-^arch which is of out- 
standing interest to them and of panimount value to the world. 
Since the system cannot be changed arbitrarily at the moment, it 
is gratifying to know that the workings of the pension fund may 
at least bring back into active scientific study many of those men 
who have served well, who have l>een honored by appointment to 
positions of administrative resjKinsibility. and who are willing at 
last to lay aside those cares to re-engage in the activities in which 
they are pre-eminently neetled. 

Mr. Karl V. Schmidt, who has headefl the Division of Amphibians 
and Reptiles at Field Mu.seum .^nce .August 1. 1022, succeeds Dr. 
OsgcKKJ as Chief Curator of the Department of Z(K)l()gy. While I 
rejoice at this honor so justly bestowed upon him, I must voice 
my regret at the interference with his .scientific endeavors that it is 
bound to pnxluce. Mr. ClifTord H. Pope joined the stafT of Field 
Museum during the year and .succeeds Mr. Schmidt as Curator 
of Amphibians and Reptiles. 

Other retirements, new ap|K)intments, promotions*, and chanj^es 
in jKTsonnel occurred, ;us follows: 

Mi.Hs Miriam Wood was appointed C hief of the James Nel.son 
and .Anna I/iuise Raymond Foundation for Public School and 
Children's Ixvlures. taking the place of Mi.ss Margaret M. Cornell, 
who retirefl at the end of l^'.VJ. Mi.ss Woo<I had been a member of 
the Raymond Foundation staff .since 1U20. Karly in the year, Mr. 
Bert K. Grove joined the Raymond P'oundation .staff as a lecturer. 

Mr. F.mil I.iljeblad. .V.ssistant Curator of In.sects, retired on 
pen.sion. and Mr. Rupert L. Wenzel was appointed to the position 
thus vacated. 

Dr. .Alexander Spoehr was appointed As.sistant Curator of 
American F^thnology and Archaeology. 



Introduction 195 

Dr. Francis Drouet, having completed a two-year appointment 
as Curator of Cryptogamic Botany, was given a permanent appoint- 
ment to that position. Mr. D. Dwight Davis, Assistant Curator 
of Anatomy and Osteology, was promoted to Curator; Mr. Paul 
0. McGrew, Assistant in Paleontology, was promoted to Assistant 
Curator, and Mr. James H. Quinn, Assistant, was promoted to 
Chief Preparator in Paleontology, these promotions to be effective 
from January 1, 1941. 

Mr. John Janecek was appointed Assistant Illustrator, and Mrs. 
Eunice Gemmill was appointed Assistant Librarian. Mr. Farley H. 
Wade was placed in charge of the Division of Printing, succeeding 
Mr. Dewey S. Dill. Miss Nellie B. Starkson was appointed Artist- 
Preparator in the Department of Zoology. 

Mr. John William Harrison, a preparator in the Department of 
Anthropology for many years, was retired on pension, as were Mr. 
A. W. Mahlmann, pressman in the Division of Printing, and Messrs. 
John Weber and Patrick Walsh, Museum guards. 

A few temporary appointments for specific tasks and periods of 
time were made, and several new preparators, guards, and clerical 
assistants were employed during the year. 

The Museum was again indebted, as it has been for several years 
past, for assistance in research work and other activities by a group 
of volunteer workers who have toiled faithfully. Some of these 
workers are named in the List of the Staff at the beginning of this 
book, being designated by the titles "Research Associate" and 
"Associate," which distinguish them from salaried workers. One 
other in the list, Mr. Paul G. Dallwig, with the title "The Layman 
Lecturer," also serves without compensation. Grateful acknowl- 
edgment is herewith made to all the volunteers so listed, and also 
to the following: Miss Anne Harding, Miss Virginia Coward, Miss 
Jane Darrow, and Miss Margaret Ross, who worked in the Depart- 
ment of Anthropology; Mr. Donald Richards, Mrs. G. B. Stifler, 
and Dr. V. 0. Graham, who assisted in the Department of Botany; 
Mr. Leonard C. Bettson, Jr., and Mr. John M. Schmidt, who 
helped in the Department of Geology; Miss Elizabeth Best, Mr. 
Melvin A. Traylor, Jr., and Mrs. M. J. Taylor, who worked in the 
Department of Zoology; and Mr. Clarence L. Brown, who served as 
a volunteer on the lecture staff of the James Nelson and Anna Louise 
Raymond Foundation for Public School and Children's Lectures. 

As in former years, it is my privilege and pleasure to commend 
especially the splendid work done by workers supplied by the Work

Projects Administration, a fcnlenil Rovernment aRency. Over the 
|)eri«Kl of years that this agency has co-oi>enile<I with Field Museum 
many of its workers have (levelope<I a hi^h degree of skill. Re})ea' 
ediy, \\ r A workers have become employees of Field Museum aa 
vacanrie.s (Hcurre<i for which they were fjualified. Many of the 
tasks on which they were engayo*! have he<-ome pnictically dei>endent 
upon them, and it is with regret that the tendency toward re<luction 
of personnel on this project is noted. Many objectives have been 
reached, however, and new methods coupled with improved efficiency 
must be relied upon to hold the gains made passible with the xssist 
ance of this organi/^ition. It is especially desire<I to commend the 
whole-hearted co-ojx^ration of Mi.ss Jessie Steers, Resident Superin- 
tendent of the Project. The average number of men and women 
employefl by the WI'A at Field Mu.^eum during 1940 was 165. 
The highest number at any one time was 2(X). The aggregate man- 
hours worketl by the entire force was approximately 257,400. 

On September 1. the Director of the Museum was called into 
the service of the I'nited States Army, serving as a Major of Infantr>* . 
on the Special Staff of the Sixth Corps Area Headquarters, in 
Chicago. It is desired to express here to the President and the 
Hoard of Trustees of the Mu.seum his appreciation for their 
liberality in aminging for the continuation of the essential control 
of the institution by the Director despite the limited time which, 
temporarily, he is able to devote to that responsibility. It is also 
desired to record the appreciation of the entire staff of the Museum 
for the action of the Hoard of Trustees which guarantees, to ever>* 
man called into service of the armed forces of the United States for 
a one-year periofi under Public Resolution No. 96 or the Selective 
Ser\ice and Training Act of 1940. the return of his former position 
when he is able to resume it. and the continuation without cost t 
him of all in.surance and pension benefits then in force. 

For the third successive year, paid admissions to the Mu.seum 
decline<^i despite an increase in total attendance. The total number 
of visitors received at the Museum during 1940 was 1.450,68.'i. 
exceeding the 1939 attendance by more than 40,000; the paid admis- 
sions, however. numbere<l only S0.SH8 as against 8.'i.518 in VXV.r 
91.097 in 193JS. and 94.217 in 1937, which was the last year shoeing 
an increase in paid admissions. 

The uninterrupted growth of total attendance year by year shows 
that the Museum is fulfilling its educational and cultural mi.s.sions 
for an ever greater public. This fact is a source of gratification. 



Introduction 197 

The decrease in paid admissions is not in itself a matter of great 
moment since it is not the Museum's aim to develop door receipts 
as a major source of revenue. Nevertheless, in times like the present 
and the several years past, when income from other sources has 
declined, the decrease also in paid admissions emphasizes the financial 
problems of an institution dependent chiefly on income from invest- 
ment of endowment funds, and on contributions. 

As I have noted in past years, the total effectiveness of the 
Museum's services to the public is by no means measured by the 
citation of any one figure such as total attendance of more than 
1,450,000. To get a truer picture of the institution's sphere of 
influence, it is necessary to add to this figure the numbers of children 
reached by the activities of the Harris Extension and the Raymond 
Foundation, and when this is done it is found that the total number 
of persons directly reached is close to 2,200,000. But even this 
does not tell the whole story, for there is a further and greater 
public whose numbers must run into many millions throughout this 
country, and abroad, to whom scientific information of Field Museum 
origin is brought indirectly through many other channels such as 
radio, publications, and press reports. 

Special programs within the Museum itself brought a combined 
total attendance of 126,951. Included in this category are the 
spring and autumn courses of lectures for adults on Saturday after- 
noons in the James Simpson Theatre; the spring, summer, and autumn 
motion pictures for children presented in the Theatre by the Ray- 
mond Foundation ; the daily and special guide-lecture tours for adults 
and children; the Sunday afternoon lectures presented by the 
Layman Lecturer, Mr. Paul G. Dallwig; and a number of programs 
for special groups to which the use of the Theatre and Lecture Hall 
was extended. 

Among special groups of visitors coming to the Museum during 
the year were the adult graduating class of the Chicago Public 
Schools, whose commencement exercises were held in the James 
Simpson Theatre in June; the Delta Delta Delta sorority, which 
attended a special lecture by Mr. Paul G. Dallwig, the Layman 
Lecturer, in July; a group of 65 librarians from Michigan towns and 
cities, sent in November by the Kellogg Foundation to make special 
studies at the Museum; the Mid-West Federation of Geological 
Societies, which held its meetings at the Museum in December; and 
the groups of young delegates sent to the Museum annually in 
December by the National Congress of Four-H Clubs. The Four-H

jn"oup> in VMi) numbercHi 1.522 boy.s and jfirls from farms of the 
I'nilCHl Slates and Canada, an increiise of more than 50 per cent 
over the jfroups of the previous year. These groups, CMpecially 
selected as rewards for k(xx1 work, represent the cream of North 
American rural youth. Their ronjrress is held simultaneoualy with 
the International Live Stock P>xp<>sition which also i« the source of 
many additional adult visitors received at the Museum each 
Deceml>er. At the Live Stock Kxpf>sition the Museum co-operated 
by displaying a number of the tnivelinR exhibits circulated by the 
N. \V. Harris Public School Kxtension. 

The Annual Meeting of the Board of Trustees w.is held January 
15, at which time Mr. Stanley Field was re-elected for his thirty- 
second consecutive year as President of the Museum. Mr. Silas H. 
Strawn was elected Second Vice-President, fiilinK the vacancy 
caused by the death in the previous year of Mr. James Simpsor. 
All other Officers of the Museum were re-electe<i. At the December 
16 meeting of the Trustees, Mr. Boardman Conover was elected to 
membership on the Board, filling a vacancy which had existed for 
a year. Mr. Conover for many years has been interested in and 
intimately associated with the work of Field Museum and has 
served voluntarily on the staff as Research Associate in Ornithology 
since 1924. He has been a member and leader of several important 
Museum expeditions, and has contributed jjenerously to help 
finance them. For his services and his contributions, the Trustees 
had previously honore<l him at various times by electing him a 
Patron, a Contributor, a Corporate Member, and a Ufe Member 
of the Museum. 

In recognition of recent eminent ser\ices to the Museum, Colonel 
Albert A. Sprague. Mr. PYetierick C. Hack, and Mr. Charles J 
Calderini were electe<l Patrons of the Museum at a meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held September 28. 

At the September meeting, the Museum Trustees also voted to 
add the names of Mr. Charles H. Schweppe and the late Charles K. 
Knickerbocker to the list of Contributors to the Mu.seum a list, 
maintained in perpetuity, of all persons whose contributions to the 
institution, in money or materials, range from $l,rHX) to $100,000. 
At their meeting of November 18, the Trustees elected Mrs. Frederick 
S. Fish, of New York, a Contributor. Mr. Schweppe's election was 
in recognition of generous cash contributions for the carrying out 
of an exhibition project now in preparation. Mr. Knickerbocker 
was posthumously elected in recognition of his gift of a notable 



Introduction 199 

collection of more than 10,000 birds' eggs, many of them extremely 
rare, which with previous collections in the Museum gives this 
institution representation of virtually all species of North American 
birds' eggs. The election of Mrs. Fish followed her gift of a pair 
of remarkable carved marble lions from China, which have been 
added to the exhibits in George T. and Frances Gaylord Smith 
Hall (Hall 24, Chinese Archaeology). 

One new Life Member, Mr. Hughston M. McBain, of Chicago, 
and one Non-Resident Life Member, Mr. Oscar U. Zerk, of Kenosha, 
Wisconsin, were elected during 1940. 

Beginning on page 302 of this Report will be found complete 
lists of all classes of Museum Members. The total number of 
memberships, as of December 31, 1940, was 4,225. There is thus 
a small gain over the previous year, when the number on the corre- 
sponding date was 4,171, and, as this is the second successive year 
in which a gain has been made, it may be hoped that it indicates 
a reversal of the previous trend toward decline. The administration 
of the Museum deeply appreciates the support given it by the civic- 
minded citizens who are enrolled as Members. The continued 
growth of membership represents an important source of hope for 
the continued expansion of the Museum's scientific and educational 
activities. 

At a meeting of the Trustees, held May 27, action was taken to 
change the name of the Hall of Plant Life (Hall 29) to "Martin A. 
and Carrie Ryerson Hall," in memory of the late Martin A. Ryerson 
and the late Mrs. Carrie Ryerson, both of whom were notable 
benefactors of this institution. 

With deep regret, record must be made of the death on February 4. 
1940, of Mr. Fred W. Sargent. Mr. Sargent had been a Trustee of 
the Museum from 1929 until June 19, 1939, when ill health compelled 
him to resign. For a number of years he was a member of the 
Auditing Committee. 

Note is regretfully made of the death of Mr. Rufus C. Dawes, 
on January 8, 1940. His passing was a great loss to Chicago, and 
to the Museum of Science and Industry, of which he was President. 
In this loss the administration of Field Museum feels a distinct 
share, for although his own institution demanded most of his time 
and energy, Mr. Dawes was keenly interested also in the work of 
Field Museum, and was a Life Member of this institution. 

Two veteran members of the scientific staff passed away during 
the year. Dr. Albert Buell Lewis, Curator of Melanesian Ethnology,

member of the Museum slafT since HM)H. prior to which he had built 
up a scholarly background as student and graduate student at the 
University of Chicago and Columbia Tniversity, and as instructor 
at the I'niversity of N'ebniska. Dr. Ix*\vis's leadership of the 
Joseph N. Field South Pacific Kxpt^lition il909 13t resulted in 
bringing to Field Museum an ethnological collection which ha.*^ 
few rivals anywhere in the world in the completeness of iLs represen- 
tation of the cultures of such regions as New Guinea, New Britain, 
and Xew Caledonia. As a result of his researches, the Museum wa.>^ 
able to publish noteworthy contributions to ethnology. He wa-s :t

Mu.seum, whose staff he joiner! in 1900, and innumerable prepara- 
tions in Field Museum's research collections remain as lasting monu- 
ments to his skill. 

Mr. John liuettner, a pen.sioner of Field Mu.seum. who had served 
as a carpenter and preparator from 1894 to 19.37, died on July 21. 

I'nder the Mu.seum's group insurance policy. $.3.(X>0 was paid 
to the widow of Dr. I>ewis, $2,r)00 to the widow of Mr. Gueret, and 
$2,000 to the widow of Mr. Huettner. 

As usual, the Mu.seum is indebted to a number of individuals for 
contributions of funds to insure its progress and the maintenance 
of its activities: and to many others for gifts of materials to expand 
the exhibits, the research collections, and the Library. The gratitude 
of the institution is herewith extended to the donors of all such 
contributions. In the following paragraphs will be found acknowl- 
edgments of some of the outstanding contributions of funds (the 
list is not complete becau.se in a few instances donors desiring to 
remain anonymous have requested that their gifts be not publicly 
noted): 

The continued generosity of Mr. Marshall Field, member of the 
Board of Trustees, which has been of such major importance year 



Introduction 201 

after year in sustaining the Museum over its most difficult financial 
problems, was again manifested with gifts in 1940 amounting to the 
munificent total of $284,680.73. 

Gifts from Mr. Stanley Field, President of the Museum, totaled 
$22,700 and were placed in a special fund to be used for such purposes 
as may later be announced. 

From Mrs. James Nelson Raymond, Founder of the James 
Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation for Public School 
and Children's Lectures, there were received gifts totaling $6,000 
to be used in meeting the operating expenses of that division of the 
Museum. 

Mr. Charles H. Schweppe contributed the sum of $2,500 toward 
the costs of a proposed exhibition project, and pledged himself to 
meet the further costs when ascertained. 

Mrs. Clarence C. Prentice made a contribution of $1,000 to the 
Leslie Wheeler Fund for the continued purchase of specimens of 
birds of prey required to expand the collection begun by the late 
Leslie Wheeler, former Trustee of the Museum. 

The Jewish Welfare Fund, of Chicago, by a final contribution of 
$500, paid the balance of its pledge of funds toward the salary of a 
scientist employed on the Museum staff. 

The Rockefeller Foundation contributed $1,000 as a salary for 
the temporary employment of an archaeologist to carry out a special 
research project in connection with Chinese archaeological and 
historical material. Mr. Malcolm Farley, the expert employed for 
this purpose, unfortunately died during the course of the work, but 
the project is being carried to completion by his widow, assisted by 
other archaeologists. 

The late Frederick T. Haskell left the Museum a bequest of 
$10,000. A legacy of $8,000 was designated for the Museum in the 
will of the late William B. Storey. 

In the departmental sections of this book will be found details 
of the many gifts of material received for the collections of the 
Museum; such gifts are noted also in the complete List of Accessions 
which begins on page 278. 

One of the most notable gifts received during 1940 consists of 
X-ray apparatus, fluoroscopic screen, mechanical devices for auto- 
matic control and timing, and all other accessories required for the 
installation of a unique exhibit whereby an Egyptian mummy will 
be shown intermittently with the projection of the X-rayed image

of its skeleton. This e<iui{)nient was presentwl to the Museum by 
the (leneral Klectric X-ray Corporation, of Chicago, which durinp 
two exposition seasons operate*! it, with a mummy lent by P'ield 
Museum, as a feature of the (Jeneral Klectric exhibits at the New 
York World's Fair ( 1939 40 >. The roentpenojfraphic and mechanical 
devices used for the purpose were espoiially designed and built 
by the technical and enpineerinp staffs of the X-ray company, and 
represent an investment of many thousands of dollars. The Museum 
plans to install this exhibit in a special chamber to be constructed 
in the Hall of Kpyptian Archaeology Hall J) early in 1941, and the 
General Klectric X-ray Corporation has generously offered the 
services of its technical experts to assi.st in completion of this project. 
The popularity of the exhibit at the Xew York P'air, where it was 
viewe<l by approximately 9.000.000 visitors, indicates that it should 
prove to be an outstanding public attraction when it has been 
permanently installer! at the Museum. 

Field Museum's collection of Chinese ivor>' objects was more 
than doubled by a bequest of the late Louis L. Valentine, gi\'ing 
his entire private collection to this institution. Some ver>' fine and 
old specimens are included in this bequest. P^.specially noteworthy 
are a number of late Ming ivories of the sixteenth and seventeenth 
centuries. 

From Mr. Michael Lemer, of Xew York, the Museum received 
two very- interesting specimens for u.se in the new Hall of Fishes 
(Hall Oi, which is in preparation. One of these is a large Pacific 
bl.T^k marlin: the other is a thresher .shark. 

-Mr. P^mil Liljeblad. As.sistant Curator of In.sects, who retired 
during the year, made a noteworthy gift of his personal collection 
compri.sing some 2.500 comparatively small beetles from California. 
This acqui.sition will greatly improve the Museum's representation 
of the many kinds of beetles found in that state. ^Ir. Liljeblad 
also made a notable contribution of books and pamphlets to the 
Museum Librar>'. 

A major project of reconstruction and rearrangement in the 
Museum Librar>- was begun in the latter part of the year, and 
should be completed early in 1941. This involves converting the 
former stackroom into a new reading room, and requires rebuilding 
the ceiling at a lower level to co-ordinate with a new system of 
indirect lighting by fluorescent tubular lights concealed in coves 
around the edges of the ceiling. In addition to improved lighting, 
the new reading room will offer better facilities for the comfort and 



Introduction 203 

convenience of visitors, and will be more accessible to them when 
they arrive on the third floor by the passenger elevator. Also, 
the better arrangement will make it possible for attendants to give 
more efficient service. Included in the reconstruction work are the 
creation of new offices for the Librarians, and the conversion of the 
old reading room into a stackroom. The plans for this work are 
so drawn, and the schedule of construction so timed, that all of the 
work will be completed without interruption of the Library's service 
to the public while the changes are being made. 

Plans were completed and the first phases of work undertaken 
for a complete reinstallation of H. N. Higinbotham Hall (Hall 31 — 
the Gem Room), and the hall was temporarily closed for this purpose 
on September 24. It is expected that the project will be completed, 
and the hall reopened, early in 1941. New types of exhibition cases 
and improved lighting will make the display of precious stones much 
more attractive, and make it possible for those who are interested 
to study gem characteristics under better conditions than heretofore. 

To protect valuable material in offices, laboratories, workshops, 
storerooms, and libraries on the third floor from casual marauders, 
wire partitions with sliding doors were installed at the head of the 
eight stairways leading to that floor. Such protection is most 
important, especially on Saturday afternoons, Sundays, and holidays, 
when the majority of the staff are absent. The doors are kept 
locked at all such times. 

In addition to painting backgrounds for several habitat groups 
opened during the year, and for others still in preparation. Staff 
Artist Arthur G. Rueckert made studies for certain murals. These 
are planned for addition to the series on outstanding forms of plant 
life, begun in Martin A. and Carrie Ryerson Hall (Hall 29) of the 
Department of Botany by a former Staff Artist, the late Charles A. 
Corwin. 

Success continued to mark the operation of the Book Shop 
established in the Museum in 1938. Indicative of growing public 
confidence has been an increase in the number of sales made on mail 
orders. Visitors to the Museum found a larger and more varied 
stock of books available for over-the-counter sales. The policy of 
offering only the best books in the fields related to the Museum's 
work was maintained. Before any book, either for adults or children, 
is accepted for display and sale it must first be passed upon by a 
member of the institution's scientific staff qualified to exercise 
judgment in the particular subject to which the book pertains.

The exhibits; at Firld Museum continued to serve as inspirational 
material for sketohinK and painting; by students of the School of the 
Art Institute of Chicago. The professional art school sent classes 
to study problems (x-currinj? in such courses as the history of art. 
drawing, composition and research, and pattern design. The classes 
for chiUlren. known as the Saturday Junior Department, were 
brought to Field Mu.seum by in.structors as a part of the regular 
curriculum. This co-operation is a source of satisfaction to both 
institutions. 

The five hundre<lth anniversary* of the invention in Europe of 
printing from movable t>7)e, and the four hundredth anniversary 
of the first printing in America, were commemorated in 1940 through- 
out the nation by printers, publishers, and libraries. Field Museum, 
in concert with other institutions, recognize<l this occasion. Two 
special exhibits of b(K)ks from the Mu.seum's Library were placeii 
on display, one in Stanley P'ield Hall in the summer, and one in 
Albert \V. Harris Hall in the autumn. 

The first of these temporar>' exhibits was devoted to some of the 
world's oldest, and some of its most beautiful, books on natural 
history. Among the old ones were Hriti.sh. French. Dutch, Venetian, 
and derman works publishe<l in the sixteenth and seventeenth 
centuries. Feature<l for beauty were such books as the great "ele- 
phant folio" edition of Audubon's The Birds of America. In order 
to demonstrate the progress of .scientific writing and printing, there 
were al.so shown .some outstanding bf)oks of more recent years. The 
second exhibit showed the development in books on natural history, 
and es|)ecially the histor>' of biology, from early printings down to 
the present time. Among works shown were those of Cuvier, 
Swammerdam, HufTon, Linnaeus, I^imarck, (ialton, and Dar\^•in. 

Field Mu.seum was represente<l by an exhibit at the Rotary 
Business Exposition held in the Hotel Sherman, April 9 12. Thi.- 
exhibit, which included the mounted giant panda Su-Lin, \%'as seen 
by at least 20,000 persons. Among other items in the display wen- 
ancient bu.siness d(X'uments on cuneiform tablets from Ki.sh. examples 
of X. W. Harris Public School Fxten.sion traveling exhibition cases, 
material illustrating the activities of the Raymond Foundation, 
and scientific publications of the Museum. Mr. A. J. Franzen. 
taxidermist of the Harris Extension, gave demonstrations of tht 
mounting of birds.

was held in George M. Pullman Hall. This was presented in con- 
junction with the national exhibits by WPA projects in all parts of 
the country during what was termed "This Work Pays Your Com- 
munity Week" (May 20-25). 

Field Museum was represented at the Exhibition of Persian Art 
in New York, sponsored by the Iranian Institute of America from 
April 15 to June 15. The exhibit was the largest of its kind ever 
attempted in this country, and illustrated the development of 
Persian art through six thousand years. Field Museum's part in 
it consisted of a display of stucco and pottery of the Sasanid period 
from a palace of King Shapur II (fourth century a.d.) excavated by 
the Field Museum-Oxford University Joint Expedition to Kish. 
The Board of Trustees agreed to send certain specimens only because 
they were available nowhere else, and were needed to fill a gap in 
the otherwise well rounded display. 

Especially fine examples of the arts and crafts of North American 
Indians, selected from the collections of the Department of Anthro- 
pology, were lent to the Museum of Modern Art, New York, for 
inclusion in a special exhibit to be held at that institution from 
January to April, 1941. Deviating from their established policy 
of many years, the Trustees consented to this loan at the special 
and urgent request of the United States Department of the Interior, 
which was interested in making this exhibit all-inclusive. 

Commerce, the magazine published by the Chicago Association of 
Commerce, accorded recognition to the Museum's many services 
for business and industry by assigning Mr. Richard Lyon Brown, 
a special writer, to prepare a comprehensive article on this subject, 
published in the August issue. 

In accordance with the spirit of co-operation existing among 
the various museums of Chicago, Field Museum presented to 
the Aluseum of Science and Industry twenty-seven volumes of 
Mining World and twelve volumes of the Brick Magazine. These 
fall more directly within the scope of the library of the industrial 
museum than that of this institution. 

Dr. Otto Haas, a well-known vertebrate paleontologist from 
Vienna, worked for several weeks as a volunteer, in collaboration 
with members of the staff of the Departments of Geology and 
Zoology, on a research project based upon the Museum's collection 
of vertebrate fossils. 

Members of the Museum staff were honored in various ways 
during the year:

conference wius sponsored by the Chicago Recreation Commission. 
Its theme was "Recreation and Prepare<lness," discussion being 
directed upon recreation as an aid to civilian morale in time of 
emergency. 

Many of the noted .scientists, and persons distinguished in other 
fields, who had occasion to visit Chicago during the year made a 
point of including Field Mu.seum among the institutions they cor 
sidereal of outstanding interest. It is possible to list here only « 
few t)f these. Among the many to whom the Museum was host were: 
Ixird I^othian. British Ambassador to the I'nited States; Dr. Julian ^ 
Huxley, Secretary, I>ondon Zoological Society; Mr. Arthur I'pham 
Pope. Director, Iranian Institute of America, Xew York; Dr. William

The Mu.seum Cafeteria served meals to 97,225 persons during 
1940. The rooms provided for children and others bringing their 
own lunches were use<^l by 7.^.738 persons. A .special lunch counter 
.supplied to the larger part of the latter group .supplementary refresh- 
ments such as hot beverages, .soft drinks, .sandwiches, ice cream, 
etc., but the tables and benches in these rooms are available to 
visitors regardless of whether they make such purchases or no;

Divisions of the Museum will be found in the pages that follow: 

DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY 

RESEARCH 

During the year work on various research problems was under- 
aken by members of the Department of Anthropology staff, and 
atisfactory progress was made. 

Dr. Paul S. Martin, the Chief Curator, and Mrs. Elizabeth S- 
Villis published their long-awaited book, Anasazi Painted Pottery 
n Field Museum of Natural History (Anasazi is a Navaho term 
[sed by archaeologists to denote all Pueblo and Basket Maker 
ulture periods of the Southwest). 

Most of the pottery illustrated in this memoir was collected in 
he 1890's by various Field Museum expeditions to the Southwest. 
?he collection, about 5,000 pieces, includes many rare and even 
mique items, most of which had never been exhibited to the public 
,nd none of which had been studied by experts. The volume illus- 
rates about one-fifth of the entire collection, both typical and rare 
lieces, and contains descriptions and pertinent data as to locality, 
ype, and chronology. This study, which took more than two years 
complete, makes the collection available to all interested persons 
-laymen, artists, teachers, and students, as well as archaeologists, 
^he work exemplifies the manner in which present-day methods of 
cholarship and research can be applied to make useful various 
aaterials collected in the haphazard fashion of fifty years ago. 
t shows how such methods can extract new details from a hitherto 
lead and useless collection, and how they can vivify it for all to 
ise and enjoy. 

Mr. Richard A. Martin, Curator of Near Eastern Archaeology, 
ompleted the research necessary for the installation of material 
rom the ancient city of Kish in the Hall of Babylonian Archaeology 
Hall K), which was opened to the public in August. A preview of 
he hall was held for the press, special guests, and members of Field 
kluseum. Further details concerning this hall will be found in this 
leport under Installations and Rearrangements. Mr. Martin also 
>repared a leaflet entitled Ancient Seals of the Near East, which 
[escribes in detail the frieze in this hall, and gives translations of 
nscriptions appearing on the seals. The specimens in Hall K were 
xcavated by the Field Museum-Oxford University Joint Expe- 
lition to Mesopotamia (1923 33).

the South Sea Islands iHHM) 13 . This is the larj^est collection of 
crania from New (kiinea that has yet been studied and the resullinv 
data made public. The report contains a comparative study o* 
Melanesian. Polynesian. Australian ai)oriKines, and African Negr«» 
skulls. 

This report is the forerunner of a .series of publications on 
craniometry, baser! on collections which have accumulated in P'ield 
Mu.^oum .since IM*:.. Research during PMO was concentrated on 
approximately KM) skulls from the i.slands of Melanesia and Poly- 
nesia. The j)lan of work is to produce a series of brief reports on vari- 
ous repions of the Pacific, and in summation a succinct, comparativr 
study of racial types of the whole Pacific region. 

Mr. C. Martin Wilbur. Curator of Chinese Archaeolog>' and 
Ethnolojiy, conducted research upon and directed installation of 
many newly ac(|uired spoi'imens. A lacqucre<l wooden jn"ille for 
a coflin. probably dating; from the third century n.( ., archaic bronzes, 
pottery, and porcelain from .sevenil j>erifKls, two monumental stom 
lions, and Chinese peasiint embroideries were put on exhibition. 
Mr. Wilbur also studied Chinese texts for information concerning 
social and economic conditions durinjz the last two centuries before 
Christ. This work was done in preparation for a forthcomin>; booK 
on Slarery in China During the Former Han Period. 

Dr. Alexander Spoehr, Assistant Curator of North American 
Archaeolojjy and Kthnolopy. prepared for publication a report fo* 
Field Mu.seum Press on Sk\d\ I'nunre Society, by the late Georp* 
A. Dorsey and the late James R. Murie. The notes for thi.> 
publication were collected from WHY.] to U»07 by Dr. Dorsey, aided 
by Murie, a Pawnee Indian. Dorsey later prepared a rough draft 
for this report from his notes. Dr. Spoehr used this first draft a 
the basis for the book in its final form. This publication was released 
in September. In addition. Dr. Spoehr super\'ised checking, sorting:, 
and cleaning of Middle American and South American specimen

in the archaeological storeroom, and worked on plans for rein- 
stallation of Hall B (American Archaeology). 

Up to the time of his death on October 10, 1940, Dr. Albert B. 
Lewis, Curator of Melanesian Ethnology, supervised the reinstalla- 
tion of many cases in Hall G (Malaysian Ethnology). This entailed 
writing more comprehensive labels, selecting suitable photographs 
to illustrate the specimens, and rearranging the material on the 
screens in a more attractive manner. 

During the year, Dr. Henry Field, Curator of Physical Anthro- 
pology, completed Part I, No. 1, of The Anthropology of Iraq— The 
Upper Euphrates. The manuscript on The Anthropology of Iraq, 
Part I, No. 2 — The Lower Euphrates-Tigris Region — has been turned 
over to the Museum Press. Dr. Field spent several weeks at 
Harvard University completing a research project on the physical 
anthropology of the modern peoples of Iraq. 

Mrs. Rose Miller continued volunteer work in studying and 
arranging the collection of 3,000 rubbings of Chinese historical 
monuments. 

Mr. John Rinaldo, Associate in Southwestern Archaeology, 
worked on The Su Site, Excavations at a Mogollon Village, Western 
New Mexico, 1939, a report of the 1939 Field Museum Expedition 
to the Southwest, led by Dr. Paul S. Martin. He helped also in pre- 
paration of a case showing the growth and development of stone tools 
in the Southwest, and a case of pottery and artifacts from Lowry 
Ruin (Hall 7). The latter embodies the latest ideas for exhibiting 
materials, the uses of which are vividly illustrated by means of four 
paintings by Miss Anne Harding. Mr. Rinaldo also helped in cata- 
loguing several collections. 

Miss Marjorie Kelly, who is likewise an Associate in Southwestern 
Archaeology, worked on skeletal material for the report of the 1939 
Field Museum Expedition. Her report was included in The Su Site, 
Excavations at a Mogollon Village, Western New Mexico, 1939, 
published in June, 1940. Miss Kelly also cleaned and sorted pottery. 

Miss Anne Fuller, Volunteer Assistant, aided in the arrange- 
ment of archaeological materials. 

Miss Margaret Ross, Volunteer Assistant, rendered valuable 
assistance in drawing layout sketches in color for the reinstallation 
of Hall B (American Archaeology). She also verified accessions and 
catalogue numbers for a periodic inventory. 

Miss Virginia Coward, Volunteer Assistant, gave valuable help 
in checking specimens and records in connection with the cataloguing

has been helpful in ei^iiting and revi.sing manu.scripts. 

The Department of .Anthropology contribute<l fifteen articles 
to Field Museum \eus, and dat-a for many articles published in 
newspapers. 

During the year, members of the staff of the Department devotcnl 
many hours to projiaration of .scripts for "How Do Vou Know?" 
a series of Mu.seum radio prognims. Several members of the Depart- 
ment likewi.se partici|)aie<l in experimental televi.sion programs 
spon.sored by the Zenith Radio Corj)oration. 

ACCESSIONS ANTHROPOLOGY 

The Department of .Anthropology listen! 2S acce.ssions, compri.sing 
1.014 specimen.s, of which 4.'?7 were gifts, 118 were acquired by 
exchange, one was purchase*!, an<l 460 were among previously 
uncatalogued material in departmental storerooms. 

As a result of an outstanding gift receiveti in 1040 from the 
Genenil Klectric X-ray Corporation, Chicago, this Department will 
be enabiwi in 11)41 to add a most unu.sual and .spectacular exhibit 
to the Hall of Kgyptian Archaeology i Hall J'. The gift includes 
all the X-ray equipment and acce,ssories required for installation in 
the Mu.seum of the exhibit featureri by (ieneral Klectric for two 
seasons at the Xew York World's P\iir < 1939 40 1 in which a mummy 
(sent to the Fair on loan from Field Mu.seum's collections) was 
X-rayed before the public view at intervals of less than one minute 
throughout the exposition visiting hours. This interesting exhibit 
will no doubt attract the same widespread attention at the Mu.seum 
that it did at the Fair. 

Xotable gifts of Chinese .specimens during the years included 
two monumental stone lions from Peking, now exhibited in George T. 



Department of Anthropology 213 

and Frances Gaylord Smith Hall (Hall 24). They came from Mrs. 
Frederick S. (Grace Studebaker) Fish, of New York, and probably 
date from the eighteenth century. In recognition of this valuable 
gift, the Trustees of the Museum elected Mrs. Fish a Contributor, 
an honor which continues in perpetuity. 

A collection of carved ivories was received from the Estate of 
Louis L. Valentine, Chicago; and eleven ceramic specimens, ranging 
in date from the Han to Ch'ing dynasties, were given by the firm 
of Grow and Cuttle, of Chicago. 

The Cenozoic Research Laboratory of Peking Union Medical 
College presented a colored cast of the reconstruction of the "Peking 
Man," one of the oldest representatives of the human race. This 
most welcome gift has been placed on exhibition in the Hall of the 
Stone Age of the Old World (Hall C). 

The Estate of Mrs. A. L. Fisher, of Colorado Springs, presented 
to the Museum 1,200 negatives and prints forming a pictorial survey 
of Iraq. Five albums of these prints were added to the Department 
files. The Museum now possesses one of the finest existing series of 
photographs of Iraq and her peoples. 

Dr. Henry Field, of Chicago, contributed ethnological specimens 
from Syria and Iraq, pottery from Petra, Trans-Jordan, and pre- 
historic artifacts from the type Mousterian station at Spy, Belgium. 

cataloguing, inventorying, and labeling — ANTHROPOLOGY 

During the year, 20 of the 27 new accessions were entered, as 
well as all or part of 55 previous accessions. 

The number of catalogue cards prepared during the year totaled 
7,974, and 7,500 cards were entered. Since the opening of the 
first inventory book, the total number of catalogue cards entered 
is 226,495. 

For the current year, the distribution of catalogue cards was 
as follows: North and South American archaeology and ethnology, 
294; Chinese, Japanese, Tibetan, and Korean archaeology and 
ethnology, 212; African ethnology, 49; Near Eastern archaeology, 
194; Melanesian and Polynesian ethnology, 361; physical anthro- 
pology, 6,864. 

From copy prepared by members of the Department, the Division 
of Printing issued 962 labels (1,985, if duplicates are included) for 
use in exhibition cases. Distribution was as follows : North and South 
American archaeology and ethnology, 176; African ethnology, 2;

storerooms. 

In the Depart' 1 albums, r),263 additional pholo^'raphs were 

mounte<l. This nr- i;v.itate<l opening new albums. About 8,074 
prints in the library of rarial tyj)e photographs of the peoples of the 
world were checke<l. 

Cataloguing and reammging of ethnological .specimens from 
Europe and st)uthwestern A.^^ia were completed. 

.\ collection of jewelry and ornamental stones, chiefly from the 
Kabyles of North .Africa, was catalogued. New labels were prepared, 
and about one hundred of the best .samples are now ready for incor- 
poration in a larger collection which will be installed in a room 
shounng gems and personal ornaments from many parts of the 
world (U. X. Higinbotham Hall Hall 31). 

installations and rkarrangements anthropoixk.y 

Hall K, the new Hall of Babylonian .Archaeology, was completed 
and opened in August under the direction of Mr. Richard A. Martin, 
Curator of Near Eastern Archaeolog>'. 

The exhibits are made up of thou.sands of objects excavate^! 
from Kish, for four thou.sand years an important city of ancient 
Babylonia. It is located in Iraq, east of P.abylon. The excavation 
was done over a period of ten years by the P'ield Mu.seum Oxford 
University Joint E,xpeflition to Mesopotamia. The staff of the late 
Professor Stephen l>angdon, of Oxford, composed of archaeologists 
from Great Britain, F'rance, and the I'nited States, supervised the 
excavating and laboratory research. Hundreds of native laborers 
performed the actual digging. P^ver since the termination in 19^ 
of ten years of field work, efforts and time have been directed 
towards recon.struction and preparation of the material selected 
for exhibition. This hall represents the longest period of civili- 
zation which has been reconstructed by Field Mu.seum. F>om the 
potter.*, sherds, statuar>\ tablets, bronze work, and building materials 
recovered it has been possible to identify this ancient city and recount 
its histor>*. 

One of the important exhibits is the reconstructed gateway of 
the Sasanid p)€riod. Curator Martin reconstructed this portal at 



Department of Anthropology 215 

the Museum, using wherever possible the original stucco from the 
royal buildings. Other interesting and valuable features are the 
earliest chariot wheels ever found; the miniature reconstruction of 
a chariot complete with horses and riders; and a frieze of seal repro- 
ductions. The frieze illustrates the high attainments of the glyptic 
artists of the Near East. In order to illustrate the history of this 
art from 3200 B.C. to a.d. 350, Curator Martin selected, for enlarged 
reproduction, impressions from eighteen cylinder seals and six 
stamp seals. These impressions, magnified twenty-five times by 
projection, were modeled in clay from the projections, and then cast 
in plaster with the help of the Federal Art Project of the Work 
Projects Administration. The resultant reproductions have been 
made into the frieze, for which special illumination is provided. 
The scale for these reproductions is such that the most minute 
details are clearer (even when viewed at a distance of twenty feet) 
than they are on the originals when examined with a hand lens. 
The impressions depict nearly all of the life of the times, with 
emphasis on the mythological aspects. 

During the year it was decided to dismantle the old installation 
of jewelry in H. N. Higinbotham Hall (Hall 31) in order to catalogue 
and rearrange some 2,500 specimens. These include materials from 
Peru, India, Arabia, North Africa, Egypt, Rome, and Syria. The plan 
is to install them in new, well-lighted cases. When completed in 1941, 
this will be one of the leading exhibits of its kind in the country. 

A case of archaeological specimens from the Lowry Ruin, Colo- 
rado, was prepared by Mr. John Rinaldo, Associate in Southwestern 
Archaeology, under the direction of Dr. Paul S. Martin, and placed 
in the Hall of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Southwestern 
United States (Hall 7). One side of the case shows the artifacts 
from Lowry Ruin in Southwestern Colorado. They are grouped in 
panels, each panel illustrating a different activity of the prehistoric 
inhabitants, such as building houses, hunting, and holding a 
ceremony. The objects in each panel are grouped around a water 
color picture illustrating the activities in which they were used. 
The other side of the case shows the progressive development, in 
stone and bone artifacts, of the Pueblo culture from Basket Maker 
times to historic times. The objects are grouped together on a panel, 
period by period, thereby showing the lineal sequence or "life history" 
of each type of artifact shown. 

The Department prepared a case of materials illustrating the 
growth and development of writing for a special event at the Rotary

At the re<|uest of the Department of Arts and Crafts of the 
Cnitefl States Department of the Interior, the Mu.seum lent to the 
Mu.seum of M(Kiern Art, New York, eighteen rare .specimens repre- 
senting excellent examples of Indian Art. 

A collection of North American ethnological specimens was lent 
for three months to the I'niversity of Minnesota Art Galler>' for a

DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY 

EXPEDITIONS AND RESEARCH 

In continuation of the Museum's botanical exploration in Guate- 
mala, reported in 1939, Dr. Julian A. Steyermark, Assistant Curator 
of the Herbarium, who arrived there in October, 1939, remained until 
May, 1940. He was accompanied by Mr. William H. Coibion, a 
University of Illinois student, as volunteer assistant. They visited 
a great number of localities in which botanical collections had never 
been made. Dr. Steyermark succeeded in amassing some 11,000 
numbered collections containing 25,000 specimens which, though 
yet imperfectly studied, have shown conclusively that the flora of 
Guatemala is still inadequately known. The Museum's efforts to 
contribute to the knowledge of it are proving decidedly valuable: 
several new genera, hundreds of new species and, especially, new 
extensions in the known distribution of hundreds of plants, not only 
of Guatemala but of North and South America as well, point to the 
far-reaching scientific importance of this endeavor. Typical of such 
"range" extensions, and of interest to many readers of this Report, 
was the discovery of the partridge berry — a plant of the northern 
and eastern United States and familiar in the Indiana Dunes — for 
the second time south of the United States. 

The wealth of plants in Guatemala is not altogether surprising, 
for conditions in some of the regions where Dr. Steyermark collected 
practically duplicate those of other lands. Thus, for example, exten- 
sive cloud forests in the Sierra de las Minas, never before ascended 
by a botanist, proved to be a natural habitat for some high Andean 
as well as North American plants. 

Making its headquarters in strategic places, the party explored 
many types of terrain, including several volcanoes, notably the mag- 
nificent Tajumulco, which rises to 11,000 feet above San Sebastian. 
The slopes of these great mountains are cut by hundreds of streams. 
Associated with them are steep thousand-foot gorges and cliffs 
which make exploration very difficult, for frequently one has to 
travel several miles in order to ascend or descend. Through the 
generosity of Professor Ulisses Rojas, of Guatemala City, excellent 
headquarters were provided at Finca Pirineos for collecting the 
flora of this volcanic region. Likewise, through the courtesy of 
Don Erich Zoller, of the Central American Plantations, hospitality 
was provided at Finca El Porvenir. Dr. Steyermark explored the 
jungles along the Atlantic coast and the mountains adjacent. These 
areas contributed largely to the knowledge of the relationship of 



218 FiKi.i) Mi'st:iM of Xatiilm- History Rkports, Vol. 12 

floras of other Central American rounlries Hon<lura-s, British 
Honduras, and Costa Rica. The expcililion yielde<l an unusually 
lar^e number of specimens of palms, orchids, bromcliads, and ferns. 
In addition, sovenil hundreti collections of .seeds and living specimens 
of ornamental or interesting plants were brought back as a contribu- 
tion to the Ciarfield Park and other Chicago Park District con- 
ser\'atories. Some of these plants have already been displayed or 
have been used otherwise to supplement the botanical collectiona 
there. 

The botanical e.xploration in (Juatemala is being continued into 
1941 by Mr. Paul C. Standley, Curator of the Herbarium, who left 
Chicago late in September. During the three months already passed 
in the field, he has made extensive collections in eastern (tuatemala. 
These have resulte<l thus far in more than 5,000 numbered col- 
lections, with .some 10,000 .specimens. The rainy season made 
conditions unusually favorable for collecting. 

Mr. Llewelyn Williams, Curator of Economic Botany, was 
grante<l an extension of his leave of ab.sence to permit the continu- 
ation of his botanical explorations in Venezuela as aide to Dr. Henr>* 
Pittier. Chief of the Botanical Service of the Venezuelan Ministr>* 
of Agriculture. During 1940 Mr. Williams made excursions to the 
coast range above Caracas, where a large tract of forest land in 
the state of Aragua is set aside as a national park. He al.so vi.sited 
many other areas along the north coast. However, as in the previ- 
ous year, his principal investigations were in the region south of the 
Orinoco. M the end of October Mr. Williams returned to resume his 
work at P'ield Museum. An article based on his ob.ser\'ations of last 
year, entitled "Botanical Exploration in the Middle and Ix)wer Caura, 
Venezuela," was published in the June number of Tropical Woods. 

Material and data on inter-tidal vegetation, tide pools, and other 
details necessar>' for the preparation of a north Atlantic coast 
habitat group of marine algae were collected by Emil Sella, Chief 
Preparator of Botanical Exhibits, on a field trip to the Maine coast. 
The collections supplement thase made by a previous expedition to 
Maine and the Bay of Fundy. A number of localities were visited, 
some as far south as Bar Harbor, but most of the collecting w^as 
done on the shore of Quoddy Head near Lubec in the Bay of Fundy. 
This is the easternmost point within the borders of the United 
States. The tidal range on this coast is from twenty-three to twenty- 
five feet, and Mr. Sella found the low tide period ideal for working 
during the best part of the day.

Department of Botany 219 

In the phanerogamic herbarium there have been mounted and 
distributed 38,431 sheets of specimens and photographs. More than 
2,680 typewritten descriptions of plant species, prepared in the 
Department or received in exchange, also have been added. These 
descriptions, when available in the study series, facilitate determina- 
tion and study of new or old material. Work of mounting current 
collections has been kept well up to date, and at the end of 1940 
only a relatively small quantity of material awaited preparation. 
The filing of new accessions to the Herbarium kept pace with the 
mounting, making new collections immediately available for use. 
Many hundreds of new covers for genera and species were prepared, 
and the alphabetical and geographical filing was checked and cor- 
rected in many groups. The purchase of twenty new metal her- 
barium cases provided considerable space for expansion and for 
some desirable rearrangement. In the cryptogamic herbarium the 
addition of two new eight-door metal cases furnished much needed 
space for filing the material recently acquired. New specimens 
were mounted as soon as they were received. An inestimable amount 
of help in writing labels, packeting specimens, filing herbarium 
sheets, determining species, and preparing duplicate material for 
exchange was given by Mr. Donald Richards, of the Hull Botanical 
Laboratory, University of Chicago. Other assistance in determina- 
tion of specimens, chiefly in the collections of fungi and lichens, was 
given by Mrs. G. B. Stifler, also of the Hull Botanical Laboratory, 
and Dr. V. 0. Graham, President of the Illinois Academy of Sciences. 
The project of repacketing the older specimens and of mounting each 
upon a single sheet has been continued from previous years, and at 
the end of 1940 the entire algal and moss collections had thus been 
renovated. 

During the past year, 9,496 prints, from the negatives of plant 
type specimens obtained in European herbaria by Associate Curator 
J. Francis Macbride, were supplied to botanists of North and South 
America at cost, or in exchange for similar type photographs or for 
specimens desired by Field Museum. 

As usual, many plants were submitted to the Department dur- 
ing the year for study and determination. Numerous local specimens 
were brought to the Museum for naming by residents of the Chicago 
region, and hundreds of inquiries regarding the most varied aspects 
of botanical science were answered by letter, telephone, and interview. 

Throughout the year the collections of the Department were 
consulted by visiting botanists from near and remote parts of the

' 111 t'i States, and from .scvenil fi)riiKn rcjuuincs. Much use h.; 
lut'n made of them l)y .seientists and students from the e<luealionai 
instiiutions in or near ChicaK", <>r el.sewhere in lUinois and neijjh- 
borinjr states. A number of slu<lent.s of the aljjae and bryophytea 
thus \vorke<i in the rryptonamic herbarium for pericxls of a week or 
more each durinp 1*>40. Mr. Donald Richards, of the rniversity of 
Chicago, si)ent a considerable part of the year studying the collections 
of bryophytes. Mr. J. C. Strickland, of the I'niversity of Chi 
and the I'niversity of Vir>jinia, devoted the perifKJ from March until 
June to a study of the N'ostocaceae. Mr. Richard Wood, of North- 
western I'niversity, was en^aj;e<i in work on the Characeae. Dr. 
G. W. Prescott, of Albion College, visite<l the Museum for ten days 
in October to consult the cr>'ptojfamic herbarium in his work on the 
plankton aljjae of Wiscon.sin. Mi.ss C^ile I.anouette, of the Cni- 
versity of Montreal, studied the Myxophyceae during the month 
of December. Mr. William A. Daily, of the University of Cincinnati, 
was at the Mu.seum for ten days in Augu.st working; jointly with Dr. 
Francis Drouet. Curator of Cryptojjamic Botany, on a revision of 
the Chrooctx^caceae. 

Pul)lications of the Department of Botany during 1940 were as 
follows: Botanical Series, Volume 9, No. 4, Flora of the Aguon 
\'alley and the Coastal Regions tiear Im Ceiba, Honduras, by T. (.

Karly in the year, the Spring Flora of Missouri, by Asaistai 
Curator Steyermark, was publi.she<l jointly by the Missouri Botanical 
Cfarden,of St. Ixiuis,and Field Mu.seum. It includes descriptions and 
illustrations of each of the 1.4(X) species of planus which bloom before 
June 1. Most of the keys to families, genera, and .species are illus- 
trated, thus facilitating their use. About twr>-thirds of the draw- 
ings were made by artists of the Work Projects Administration. 
The staff contributed numerous signed articles and brief notes to 
Field Museum Xeirs and to Tropical Woods, and supplied informa

:ion for numerous newspaper articles. Curator Standley and Assist- 
int Curator Steyermark published during the year many short 
papers dealing with plants of the United States and tropical America. 
Botany Leaflet No. 25, published toward the end of the year, 
!s entitled The Siory of Food Plants, and contains plates reproducing 
the seventeen mural paintings in Hall 25 by Julius Moessel (text of 
the leaflet is by Chief Curator B. E. Dahlgren). 

ACCESSIONS — botany 

In 1940 there were received in the Department of Botany 345 
accessions, comprising about 80,000 items. The accessions included 
material for the wood and the economic collections, as well as for 
the exhibits and the Herbarium. Classified by sources, 14,057 
:ame as gifts, 16,936 in exchanges, 8,057 as purchases, and 41,173

of hepatics, fungi, and lichens. The largest accession was of about 
12,500 cniDtogams collected by Curator Drouet and Mr. Donald 
Richards in the Mexican state of Sonora, and in New ^Mexico, 
Arizona, and California on the Field ^Museum Expedition to Sonora 
and Southwestern United States (1939-40). Some 2,000 mosses 
and algae came from the Sewell Avery Expedition to Guatemala 
fl938-39), and from Florida in 1940, all collected by Curator 
Standley. Further collections were made by members of the staff 
in the vicinity of Chicago. Several thousand cryptogams, mostly 
algae, collected by Dr. Drouet in Massachusetts and ^Maryland in 
July, have not yet been accessioned. 

Many gifts came from indi\iduals. ]VIr. Donald Richards, of 
Chicago, contributed 945 specimens, mainly bryophytes of Minne- 
sota, Illinois, and Indiana. From Mr. William A. Daily, of Cincin- 
nati, came 373 specimens of the Chroococcaceae of Ohio, Indiana, 
and Kentuck\\ Dr. ]M. J. Groesbeck, of Porter\-ille, California, 
who is engaged in a survey of the hot springs and alkali flats and 
lakes of eastern California and western Nevada, sent 253 specimens 
of algae. An additional 225 specimens of the algae of Burma were 
accessioned from Dr. L. P. Khanna, of Rangoon. From Professor 
William Randolph Taylor, Ann Arbor, Michigan, were received 
138 specimens of ^Myxophyceae. Dr. George J. Hollenberg, Red- 
lands, Cahfornia, sent 107 specimens of ]M\-:xophyceae of California. 
Eighty-eight specimens of Canadian M\-xophyceae from the Pro- 
\ince of Quebec came from Dr. Jules Brunei, of Montreal. Mr. 
Hermann C. Benke, Chicago, contributed 83 specimens of cn-iDtogams 
of Wisconsin. Dr. G. W. Prescott, Albion, ^Michigan, made a gift 
of 76 algae of the Canal Zone and Wisconsin. ]\Ir. Lawrence J. 
King, of Richmond, Indiana, presented 69 algae of WajTie County, 
Indiana; Dr. Herman Kleerekoper, of Sao Paulo, 45 algae of Brazil; 
Mr. James R. Hui't, of Columbia, ^Missouri, 44 algae of Missouri; 
and ]Miss Barbara Willis, of Bennington, Vermont, 42 mosses of 
the Canal Zone. 

The largest collection received by gift, but not yet prepared for 
accessioning, is a complete set of the several thousand numbers of 
Myxophyceae in the herbarium of the late Professor Nathaniel 
Lyon Gardner, of the University of California. One set of specimens 
of this collection is to remain at the university, and the dupHcate 
sets are to be distributed from Field Museum. 

A considerable portion, containing about 5,000 specimens, of the 
algal herbarium of the late Professor K. Okamura, of Hokkaido

Ohio State I'niversity, consisting of 227 specimens from Cluatemal;i. 
Ohio, and Kuro|H\ was place<l in the cr>'j)togamic herbarium of 
Field Museum through the courtesy of Dr. Clarence E. Taft and 
Mr. William A. l);iil\. This was acquired partially by gift and 
partially by exchange. 

In exchanges, 291 sjKvimens of algae and mosses were received 
from the New York Botanical darden; 257 algae and br>ophytes of 
California and the Pacific Islands from Dr. V. Raymond F'osberjj, 
Arlington. \'irginia: 252 Myxophyceae of the Philippines, collected

land, Charlottesville. \'irginia. Field Museum sent in exchanges t" 
various institutions. 1,171 specimens of cryptogams. 

The study series of wcxxls was increased considerably by material 
acquired mostly through exchange. The largest item, numbering 
close to 2,400 specimens, was received from Mr. B. A. Krukoff, of 
New York, as part payment for a complete set of photographs of 
type herbarium sjKvimens. This includes more than seven hundred 
samples collected by Mr. KrukotT on his fifth expedition to the 
Brazilian Amazonia in 19.'14 35; approximately eight hundred num- 
bers assembler! in the .same general region during 1936 37; a set of 
38.') .specimens from the Bolivian Amazonia: 261 hand samples from 
the Sultanate of Asahan, Sumatra. Dutch Fast Indies; and a dupli- 
cate set of the material collected in 1929 by Mr. G. Proctor Cooper 
III in Liberia. West Africa, for Yale University School of Forestr. 

Several hundred study specimens were received from the F?otani- 
cal Service of the Ministry of Agriculture of Venezuela. These were 
collecte<l by Curator Llewelyn Williams during his botanical explo- 
rations of the National Park. State of Aragua. and on his recent 
expedition to the region .south of the Orinoco. Through the gener- 
n>ity of Senor Joaquin Avellan, of Caracas, the Museum received

nine panels suitable for exhibition purposes, representing some of 
the most widely used woods of Venezuela. 

Mr. F. A. McClure, Curator of Economic Botany for the Lignan 
Natural History Survey and Museum, contributed 85 hand speci- 
mens of Chinese wood. Mrs. B. B. Lewis, of Guatemala City, gave 
22 samples. 

To the economic collections Dr. Elizabeth Bacon, of Seattle, 
Washington, and Captain W. J. Moody, of the British Legation at 
Peshawar, India, contributed 107 specimens of plant drugs sold in 
the markets of Meshed, Persia, and Kabul, Afghanistan. Other 
material received included samples of beans from Mr. Clayborn 
Wayne, State College of New Mexico; fruits of the ivory palm 
(Hyphaene) from Victoria Falls, Southern Rhodesia, donated by 
Mr. Robert B. Dickinson of Lake Forest, Illinois; and 73 specimens 
of fruits, seeds, oils, and palm material collected in Venezuela by 
Curator Williams. 

The total of numbered specimens in the botanical collections at 
the end of the year 1940 was 1,067,247.

During 1940 there were distributed in exchange to institutions 
and individuals in North and South America, and Europe, 91 lots 
of materials, totaling 9,917 items, including herbarium specimens, 
wood specimens, photographs, and typed descriptions of plants. 
Fifty-four lots of material, comprising 2,429 separate items, were 
received on loan for study or determination, and 119 lots, comprising 
14,876 specimens, were lent for determination or for use in mono- 
graphic studies. 

Hundreds of index cards were typed for the study collection of 
woods, and all the wood specimens received during the year were 
stamped with the collector's catalogue number. Typed copies 
were also made of field notes to accompany herbarium specimens. 

For convenience in reference, specimens of economic plant 
material, fruits, seeds, fibers, etc., were selected from the large 
quantity of material stored in the lockers under the cases in the 
exhibition halls. When properly classified and arranged for con- 
venient access they will constitute a ready reference collection. 

installations and rearrangements — BOTANY 

In the exhibition halls of the Department of Botany the most 
notable additions were made in the Hall of Food Plants (Hall 25),

and in the Hall of North Arneru-an WcmkIs Hall 2ii.. In the fof 
ten new murals wert* addwl to thos<» rTiwirttnl in 1939, incre;i i!!;; 
the total niimlHT to seventeen and complt'tinK the series now 
deconitinp three sides of the hall. 

These ixiintinps de[)irt human activities concerned with the 
gathering, plant inn. Jind cultivation of Man's more important types 
of vejretable Umm\, and the preparation, transportation, and com- 
merce of fcMKlstufTs. Two of the new murals are maps. One shows 
the ancient trade routes over which the prmlucts of the Kaul were 
formerly bmujjht to the Western World. The other show*s the areas 
of orijrin of the principal cultivate<l foml plant,s in the Old and New 
Worlds. The entire series thus constitutes a pictorial 8tor>' of food 
plants and serves to enhance the interest of the botanical exhibit^s in 
this hall. These new murals, like thase mentioned and figured in 
the previous years Report of the Director, are the work of Mr 
Julius Moessel, Chicajjo artist, well-known for his decorative paint- 
ings. Reproductions of the whole series have been publi.shed, with 
an accompanying text, in Motany Ix'aflet No. 25, The Story of 
Food Plants. An example is shown in Folate 16 of this Report. 

The exhibits of North .American trees and woods in C. F. Mill.- 
paugh Hall Hall 26 1 have been supplemented by the addition ot 
many photogi-aphic tran.sj)arencies showing forest types and wood 
lanfl formations. Most of the photographs from which these have 
been made were obtained by loan and represent a selection from the 
vast number of negatives in the files of the I'nited States Forest 
Service. A few are from the Mu.seum's own files, and others have 
been obtained from individuals and as.sociations such as the Save 
the Re^lwood I>?ague, Amrrican Lumhcrman, etc. Here, as in Hall 
25, the presence of colored out-door scenes contributes greatly to 
the appearance of the hall and to the interest of the related specinv - 
A few of the installations of conifers in the northwest quarter of tnc 
hall were rearranged recently to provide a more orderly sequence. 

In the Hall of Foreign Woods (Hall 27 1 several additions wore 
made to existing installations. These include a splendid plank of 
"ipil," a Philippine wood, donated several years ago by Mr. Ralph A 
r*.nrH nf Chicago, and a fine sjiecimen of West Coast mahogan-. 
\\a humitis), the gift of Mr. L. Lind Petersen, of P>cuin ., 
Ouatemala. From material received in 1937 from the Mexican gov- 
ernment, and other sources, the exhibit of woods from Mexico was 
increased by the addition of an assortment of eleven species, mr> 
from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Other installations were Central

In Martin A. and Carrie Ryerson Hall (Hall 29, Plant Life) the only 
additions made during the year were a ginger plant, reproduced by 
Artist-Preparator Milton Copulos, from a specimen of ginger grown 
in the Museum, and a large fruiting branch of a rose to illustrate a 
type of fruit hitherto lacking in the exhibit of the rose family. To 
the palm exhibits in Hall 25 there was added a reproduction of a 
handsome cluster of dates received a few years ago from the govern- 
ment experiment station at Tucson, Arizona. This reproduction is 
in large part the work of craftsmen working with the aid and under 
the supervision of Mr. Emil Sella, Chief Preparator of Exhibits, and 
Mr. Milton Copulos. The time and effort of the preparators of 
botanical exhibits have been devoted throughout the year mainly to 
work on new plant habitat groups for Ryerson Hall. 

DEPARTMENT OF GEOLOGY 

EXPEDITIONS AND RESEARCH 

An expedition led by Mr. Paul 0. McGrew, Assistant in Paleon- 
tology, spent four months collecting fossil mammals from the lower 
Miocene deposits of South Dakota and western Nebraska. The 
extensive series of specimens secured include two skeletons of a 
small gazelle-like camel, Stenomylus, and ten skulls and a large 
number of other bones of the primitive deer Aletomeryx. A rich 
microfauna of extinct rodents (Aplodontoidea, Geomyidae, and 
Heteromyidae), containing at least two new genera and several new 
species, was also obtained. 
|l Bones of the giant fossil sloth Megalonyz were collected by Mr. 
Bryan Patterson, Assistant Curator of Paleontology, and Mr. James 
H. Quinn, Assistant in Paleontology, at London Mills, Illinois. 
Although far from a complete skeleton, and not to be compared in 
this respect with the giant sloths collected by the Marshall Field 
Expeditions to South America, it is much more complete than any 
of the other specimens of the genus found in Illinois. 

Mr. Sharat K. Roy, Curator of Geology, spent three months 
collecting specimens relating to physical geology. During this time, 
eighty-five localities in nine states — Nebraska, South Dakota, 
Colorado, Wyoming, Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York,

Fossil Vertebrates was prepared by Mr. Elmer S. Riggs, Curator of 
Paleontology, and is ready for publication. 

Curator Roy spent the greater part of the year upon the comple- 
tion of his memoir, The Upper Ordotician Fauna of Frohisher Bay, 
Baffin Land, which is now in press. This paper, based on his field 
work as a member of the Rawson-MacMillan Subarctic Expedition 
for Field Museum (1927 28) consists of the description and illustra- 
tion of 116 species and the determination of their stratigraphic range. 
Of the species described, forty-two are new. The memoir is supple- 
mented by a chapter, "Narrative of the Expedition with Notes on 
the Coastal Geology of Labrador and Baffin Land." This chapter 
has been introduced to maintain continuity of geological observations 
and to give the reader a bird's-eye view of the expedition as a whole. 

The study of the fossils upon which the memoir is based reveals 
that no Black River or Trenton time is represented at the head of 
Frobisher Bay as previously reported, but all the strata therein 
present are of late Ordovician or Richmondian time. This con- 
clusion clarifies a long-standing controversial phase of Arctic 
Ordovician stratigraphy. 

The National Museum of Costa Rica, at San Jos^, sent Field 
Museum a collection of varied geological specimens to be identified. 
All of these, except six fossil leaves which are now being studied by 
Dr. Ralph Chaney, of the University of California, were identified. 
The invertebrate fossils were identified by Dr. Otto Haas, formerly 
of Vienna, acting temporarily as a volunteer assistant. A paper by 
Dr. Haas, describing the fauna, is undergoing some revision and 
amplification before publication. 

In the chemical laboratory four meteorites were analyzed by 
Assistant Curator Herpers. He also treated eighteen bronzes for 
the Department of Anthropology by the Fink process for curing 
malignant patina. None of the many specimens sent in for examina- 
tion as possible meteorites proved to be meteorites. Numerous 
necessary qualitative analyses and microscopic studies were per- 
formed as usual. Also, 585 gallons of alcohol were purified for the 
Department of Zoology, and distilled water was provided as needed. 

The equipment for sawing and polishing stone was, until August, 
in constant use, cutting and polishing the agates, fossil wood and 
other ornamental stones obtained by the Expedition to the Pacific 
Northwest (1938). When a supply of finished specimens ample 
for several years' needs had been accumulated, this work was 
discontinued, and the saw was put to use cutting to exhibition

size and shape the many specimens illustrating physical ^t^'I^J^' 
collected in 1910. 

In the vertebrate paleontoiojfy workrooms molds were made 
from a plastic rubl>or mixture intnMlucc<i and i>erfoctefl by Assistant 
l^uinn, and s<'rios of casts were made by this mclh(Kl from specimens 
of MtstmhriDrtus. liarylambila, HaphtlamMa, SjxiraclolaynMa, lialhyp- 
aoides, Hippitiium and Arpyoruis. Copies of these casts were sent 
to ten museums by exchange, sale or pift. In return for the exchanges, 
many casts valuable for study and research were secured. 

Plaster mcxlels were made of the primitive deer-like animal 
Lfptnmeryi. of the Miocene camel Orydnrlylus, of the armored 
mammal (tlyplodon, and of the great sloth Mrgntherinm. These 
tiv'ures. all but one in miniature, are intended to supplement exhibits 
of fossils. 

ACXrESSlONS GEOLOGY 

The Department of Geology recordefl rluring the year sevent 
two accessions which include*! 890 specimens. Classified by sources, 
TjIG came as gifts. ."iO were from exchanges, 29S were from expetlitions 
or were olher>vise collectwl by members of the staff, and 2fi were 
purcha.scfl. These figures do not include the three collections, 
estimate<i to contain more than a thou.sand specimens, from the 
expe<litions conducted by Curator Roy, Assistant Curator Mather, 
and .A.ssistant McClrew. The unpacking and classifying of these is 
under way, but has not advance*! to the stage of accessioning and 
cataloguing. N*o large collections were received by gift or purchase. 
Additions to the mineral collection, while not numerous, were im- 
portant becau.se they added many mineral species previously either 
lacking or poorly represente<l. Of these, the following are worthy 
of siKvial mention: maz«ipilite and du.ssertite from Mapimi. Durango, 
Mexico, the gift of Mr. Francis Wi.se, of Colorado Springs. Colorado; 
dahllite. presented by Mr. O. J. Salo, of Red Lodge, Montana; 
shortite from Wyoming, the gift of Mr. Bryant Mather, of Chicago; 
ferritungstite, presented by Mi.ss Ann Trevett, of Caspar, Wyoming; 
clinozoi.site and thinolite, received from Dr. M. J. Ciroesbeck, of 
Porterville, California: chiastolite in the form of two plaques of 
tran.sparent .sections of cn.-.stals from Au.stralia and Mas.sachusetts. 
the gift of William P>. Pitts, of Sunnyvale, California; and a small 
gem opal of fine quality, mounted in a .silver hand, presented by 
Mr. H. W. Plantz, of Chicago. 

The meteorite collection was increased by the purchase of twenty- 
three specimens of meteorites not before represented. Another 



Department of Geology 231 

interesting addition was a meteorite which came from near the 
Odessa meteorite crater, presented by Professor Lincoln La Paz, 
of Columbus, Ohio. It has special interest because it was excavated 
from a bed of limestone. The tektite collection, temporarily placed 
with the meteorites until the true nature of these puzzling objects 
is determined, was increased by the addition of seven specimens. 
Six of these are tektites presented by Mr. R. Schaap, of Batavia, 
Netherlands East Indies, and one is a fragment of Darwin glass 
obtained by an exchange with Mr. John D. Buddhue, of Pasadena, 
California. 

The more important additions to the vertebrate fossil collection 
came from the Expedition to South Dakota and Nebraska, and are 
mentioned elsewhere. 

Professor Arnim D. Hummel, of Richmond, Kentucky, owner of 
the ground near London Mills, Illinois, in which a partial skeleton 
of the giant sloth Megalonyx was buried, presented the fossil to the 
Museum. It was excavated by members of the staff. Other gifts 
of vertebrate fossils included nine fossil mammals, from Assistant 
James H. Quinn; a lower jaw of a fossil raccoon, from Mr. Grayson 
E. Mead, of Chicago; eighteen groups of fish teeth, from Dr. R. R. 
Becker, of Gainesville, Florida, and a skull of a fossil dog, from 
Mr. Robert G. Schmidt, of Homewood, Illinois. 

The collections of rocks and physical and economic geology 
material were increased by important additions estimated to contain 
several hundred specimens from two expeditions conducted by Curator 
Roy and Assistant Curator Mather. These expeditions were not only 
eminently successful in their primary objective of obtaining speci- 
mens for the improvement of the physical geology exhibit, but they 
also obtained many specimens for the other collections of the Depart- 
ment. Forty-six miscellaneous specimens came from expeditions 
conducted by other Departments. Other accessions to the collec- 
tions, which were fewer than usual, include eighty-nine specimens 
from fourteen donors. 

CATALOGUING, INVENTORYING, AND LABELING — GEOLOGY 

During 1940, there were 890 specimens catalogued in the Depart- 
ment's twenty-eight record books. All classified card catalogues 
have been kept up to date. The map catalogue, begun in 1939, 
is completed. A classified card catalogue of the gem collection in 
H. N. Higinbotham Hall (Hall 31) was made, and proved useful 



'2:V2 KiKi.i) MrsKi'M of Xati?rai, History I{kp<)KI><, Vol. 12 

in the preliminary slapes of reinstallation of this hall. In all, the 
olassilieil catalo^'ues were increasc<i by the addition of 4,258 cards. 

Copy for 1,12') labels was prepare^! and sent to the Division 
of Printinp. I-ibels instalktl numbereil 1.2(>4. 

INSTALLATIONS AND KEARRAN(;KMKNTS GKOIXXiY 

rhanpcs in the mineral installation in Hall 'M were limited to 
some re[)lacements of inferior .sj)e<Mmens by better ones, and the 
addition of mi.'^ellaneous specimens receive<i during the year. This 
collection, with iu .T2,0(X1 specimens, now covers almost the entire 
range of mineral species and varieties. In the nearly forty-eight 
years of Field Mu.^eum's existence the number of specimens in the 
mineral collection has {iuadruple<l, largely through the efforts of the 
late Dr. Oliver C. Farrington, former head of the Department, and 
the goal of complete repre.sentation has been ever more closely 
approache<l. Of the S24 distinct mineral species known in 18i»2, the 
original collwtion purchase<i at the time of founding the Museum 
included 491, and up to the beginning of 1940 there had been added 
120 more. In 1940, examples of five more of these "original" mineral 
species, as well as of four other species not before represented, were 
added to the collection. 

The meteorite collection was enlarge<l by the addition of twenty- 
four meteorites and eight tektites. Much of the interest in iron 
meteorites lies in the Widmanstiitten figures, which are interlacing 
patterns of bands and lines developer! on polished surfaces of the 
meteorites by etching with acid. Old methods of etching meteorites 
pr(Kiuce<l results much inferior to those obtained by applying the 
technique more recently developed in the laboratories of the United 
States National Museum. The figures on many of the older specimens 
are dull, often imperfect, and .sometimes spotted with ru.st. A 
program of re-etching such meteorites as inspection shows can be 
improve<l, has been started, and twenty-four have been treated. 

Revision and reinstallation of the exhibits of physical and 
economic geology and paleontolog>' in Halls 35, .36, 37, and 38 con- 
tinued. As this involves transfer of exhibits between the halls, 
reinstallation of all four is proceeding simultaneously. Xone of the 
halls have been closed, and although many cases have been emptied, 
it has been possible so to conduct the work that the major part of 
the exhibits always remains on di.splay. 

Installation of the improved physical geolog>* collection which 
occupies the east half of Clarence Buckingham Hall (Hall 35; was 



Department of Geology 233 

interrupted when early reports from collecting parties in the field 
indicated that material superior to any now in the collections will 
soon be available. These collections were received late in the year 
and the work of preparing them for exhibition was started. Many 
of the new specimens require cutting on the stone saw to a size and 
shape suited for exhibition. The large model of the Natural Bridge 
of Virginia was moved from Hall 34 to a better location in the 
corridor connecting Halls 35 and 36. 

Reinstallation of the industrial mineral exhibit in Hall 36 con- 
tinued during the first part of the year as fast as reconditioned 
exhibition cases became available. As the new installation includes 
much material transferred from Frederick J. V. Skiff Hall (Hall 37), 
a necessary condensation was made by transferring to the study 
collections specimens primarily of interest to specialists. There 
they remain available to those competent to profit by their study. 
It is believed that the new installation, although holding fewer 
specimens of most groups, will be of more general interest. Three 
and one-half cases of fiuorite, barite, and sulphur were installed. 
Further installation was postponed to allow closer attention to 
preparations for reinstallation of the gem collection. 

Removal from Hall 36 of overflow material from the industrial 
mineral exhibit (which formerly filled the west half of Hall 37) is 
nearly completed. This change provides space for the invertebrate 
paleontology exhibit, which is to be moved from Hall 38. Some of 
the exhibits were reinstalled in Hall 36, others were taken to the work- 
rooms for revision before reinstallation, and still others were trans- 
ferred to the study collection. The marbles and building stones for 
which no space could be found in the new installation were retired. 

In the ore collection (east half of Hall 37) one case of tin and 
antimony, and one case of rare metals were reinstalled. 

The conversion of Ernest R. Graham Hall (Hall 38) from a hall 
of general paleontology into a hall of vertebrate paleontology, for 
which plans were made in the preceding year, was actively prose- 
cuted throughout 1940. This required, besides preparation of new 
specimens and of specimens not before shown, remounting and re- 
finishing many of the older exhibits. 

New exhibits include a skull of the large horned dinosaur Anchi- 
ceratops, and an unusually large skull of the swimming reptile, 
Tylosaurus. Skulls of the extinct mammals Achaenodon, Doli- 
chorhinus, Daphaenus, and Desmathyus were prepared for exhibition, 
and a large number of other mammalian specimens were added to 



231 FiKi.i) MrsKiM of Xatikai. History Rki'orts, Vol. 12 

the study rolUviion. A skull ol Liu- lussu amphibian liiuHnena, and 
shells of two lar>ie fowil turtl(»s. were prcpartHl and mounted for 
exhibition. More notable spe<Mmens are a skeleton of thp (riant 
beaver, CastoTouies, and a skeletal restoration of the jfr- ith 

American carnivorous bird. Mfsrmhrinrnis (Plate 20), both mounted 
by A.vistant James H. Quinn. A lar^e .section from the famous bone 
dejxjRit at Agate, N'ebniska, was prepare*! under his supenision. A 
skeleton of the Pliocene camel I^rttcnrndus was prepared and mounted 
under the .supervi.sion of Assistant Paul O. McClrew. 

Fossil .skeletons remountetl include one of the great South 
American armore<i mammal, (Uyptodon clarijyrff, to which leg bones 
and iH?lvis were adde<l to make an essentially complete specimen 
The older collections of fossil fish-li/^irds. crocodiles, and plesiosaurs 
of the Kuropean Jurassic were refurbished; seven of the specimens 
were remounte<l, and all were installed in two cases with new labels. 
A case of I*aleozoic and Jura.ssic fishes, and one of Cretaceous and 
Eocene fLshes, were likewi.se gone over and reinstalled, as were two 
cases of Cretaceous swimming reptiles and fl>-ing reptiles, all under 
the super\i.sion of C^urator Klmer S. Riggs. 

A new type of ca.se without shelving, and with lower base and 
conse<iuent enlarged exhibition space, has been adopted for Ernest 
R. (iraham Hall Hall 38). A new type of lighting also provide^ 
much more effective illumination for exhibits. In this new t>'p€ of 
case, the exhibits enumerateil above were installed. 

Preparation for a complete reinstallation of the gem collection in 
H. X. Higinbotham Hall Hall 31 > occupietl much of the time of the 
staff during the last four months of the year. The new installation 
will be in especially designed cases with improved illumination. 
Methods of display have been adopted which will bring out the full 
beauty of the gems in a manner imprwwible in the old installation. 
As no catalogue of the gems was available, and as many of the .speci- 
mens are of great value and so small as to be easily mi.slaid, extraor- 
dinary means were Liken to prepare and check a list of all speci- 
mrr.< .ind to .safeguard them from the time of di.smantling the old 
c< n until reinstallation. 

P>efore the cases were opened a check list was made containing a 
description of each specimen with a copy of its label and such data 
as could be found in the records. All cut stones which could not be 
numbered without impairing their appearance were measured and 
weighed to the nearest milligram, and these figures recorded against 
the catalogue numbers assigned to them. It will always be possible

from these records to identify any gem that at some future time 
might accidentally become separated from its label. All other speci- 
mens were numbered and the numbers recorded. A card catalogue 
has been prepared from the check list, and as the cards contain 
records of the size of every specimen, it has been possible to mark 
on blue prints of the interior of the cases the place each specimen is 
to occupy in the new installation. The use of these plans will greatly 
expedite the actual installation when the cases are ready, and will 
allow the installation to proceed with a minimum of handling 
specimens. 

Thirty-five sections of steel tray racks were placed in rooms 108 
and 116 to provide increased accommodation for the study collec- 
tions of physical geology and mineralogy. Over-crowding of the 
study collection has been relieved, and the collection is now in as 
good order as is possible until the contemplated increase of storage 
facilities becomes available. 

DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY 

EXPEDITIONS AND RESEARCH 

The Magellanic Expedition of Field Museum, sponsored by 
President Stanley Field, in 1940 completed the work in South America 
which it began in 1939. The party, led by Dr. Wilfred H. Osgood, 
Chief Curator of Zoology, included Mr. Colin C. Sanborn, Curator 
of Mammals, and Mr. John M. Schmidt, field assistant. The Chilean 
city of Punta Arenas, on the north side of the Strait of Magellan, was 
reached about the middle of December, 1939. Punta Arenas, head- 
quarters for the expedition from December 15 to March 15, is the 
southernmost continental city in the world. Far removed from other 
parts of South America, and with a population of about 30,000, it 
is the metropolis of a little world of its own in a region devoted 
mainly to large scale sheep raising. 

A two-ton Ford truck, purchased for the work in the Magellanic 
region, proved invaluable in transporting the party with its equip- 
ment and collections. A representation of the mammals from the 
great island of Tierra del Fuego (the "Land of Fire"), which is cut 
off from the mainland of South America by the Strait of Magellan, 
was the main objective of the expedition. Various collecting sta- 
tions were established on the island, two in the far south on Lakes 
Fagnano and Yewin. Headquarters for a considerable stay were 
generously provided at the Reynolds' Ranch at Via Monte, and a 
short stop was made at Estancia Cullen, to the north. A very satis-

A rompreliensive colleelion of all of the small mammals of the rejrion 
w;i,s ol)taine<l, including all the forms known with the exception of 
a burrowinj; nnlent, now apparently extinct. However, two sj • 
mens of a new spei'ies, representative of the form thought to be 
extinct on the mainland, were obtained on Riesco Island. In al; 
the colle<'tion includes 472 mammals, and is much the most exten- 
sive ever made in the Magellanic region, now esi)ecially imi)or" 
in view of the trend toward extinction of many forms under mu 
alterations of soil and vegetation prrxiucefl by the vast flocks of 
sheep. The collection includes al.so 1.').') birds and a fpw lizards of 
the .southernmost form in South America. 

Work endefi the middle of March at the end of the brief Antarcti' 
summer. Mr. John Schmidt returned to New York with the col 
lections via the west coast. Dr. O.sgfMxl and Mr. Sanborn procee<led 
by steamer to Buenos Aires, whence Dr. ( Osgood returneti to Chicag 
via the east coast of South .Vmerica. vi.^iting Sao Paulo, F.razi 
en route, for a conference with Dr. Oliverio Pinto, Director of the 
Museu Paulista in that city. 

Curator S;»nborn spent two weeks in further collecting in Ar/- • -

bamba, liolivia, to examine collections otTere<i for sale. After a 
short stop in I^ Paz. he crossed I^ke Titicaca to Puno, Peru. 

The work of the Magellanic P'.xpedition in Peru during 1939 had 
defmei^l certain geogniphic problems in the distribution of small 
mammals, and indicated desirable additional collecting stations in 
southern Peru. Collections of mammals, birds, and reptiles were 
made at Yunguyu and at Pocosani in the l^ke Titicaca region, at 
Baftos de J6»us above Are^juipa, and at Chucurapi, a sugar plan- 
tation near the coast. At the latter place a remarkable bat, hitherto 
extremely rare in collections, was obtaine<l in good .series. The 
mammals collei^ed in Peru in 1939 and 1940 total 633. The total 
number of mammals collected by the expe^lition is 1.419. Birds 
collected number 334, and reptiles and amphibians 1,694. 

The Museum is greatly obliged to the personnel of the American 
embassies and consulates in Peru, Chile. Argentina, and Bolivia, 
for aid and advice to the Magellanic Expedition. In addition,

important assistance was rendered by Dr. Carlos Nicholson and 
Seiior Fernando Lopez de Romano, of Arequipa, Peru; by Mr. 
George Hodgson, of Talca, Mr. Fred Turner, of Osorno, Mr. William 
Fell and his son, of North Arm Station, Mr. John Dick and Messrs. 
Greer and McLean, of Punta Arenas, all in Chile; by the Bridges, 
Reynolds, and Goodall families of Tierra del Fuego; and by Mr. 
Hal Hodges, of Buenos Aires, Senor Jose Maria Perez Bustos, of 
Bahia Blanca, and Sehor Gaston Pawley of Chimpay, Argentina. 

The Mandel Caribbean Expedition, led by Mr. Leon Mandel, of 
Chicago, and conducted aboard his yacht, the Buccaneer, was in the 
Caribbean region from January 1 to February 9, 1940. Messrs. 
Rud^-erd Boulton, Curator of Birds, and D. D wight Davis, Assist- 
ant Curator of Anatomy and Osteology, accompanied the expedition. 
By means of the Buccaneer, they were able to make collections of 
birds, mammals, and reptiles on remote and little visited islands, 
together with considerable collections of fishes, numerous inverte- 
brates, a specimen of the rodent genus Capromys embalmed for ana- 
tomical study, and a specimen of the relatively rare Cuban crocodile. 

The party visited Swan Island and the Bay Islands off Honduras, 
various islands off the coast of British Honduras, including Glover's 
Reef, Half Moon Cay and Turneffe Island, and Mujeres, Cancun, 
and Contoy Islands, off Yucatan. No opportunity was lost to 
obtain collections from these little-visited islands. The expedition, 
in addition to various lots of invertebrates, collected more than 500 
fishes, 350 reptiles and amphibians, 150 birds, and 36 mammals. 

A motion picture record of the Mandel Caribbean Expedition, 
in color film, was made by Messrs. Boulton and Davis. This includes 
especially interesting views of the nesting rookeries of sea birds on 
the islands visited, and slow motion flight pictures of various birds, 
especially of the frigate bird. 

The year's publications in the Museum's Zoological Series

In the Division of Amphibians and Reptiles, Curator Schmidt 
continued studies on the amphibians and reptiles of Central 
America and southwestern Asia, and the fossil representatives of 
the living orders of reptiles, preparing a paper for the Museum's 
Geological Series on a fossil turtle from Arkansas, with another 
publication well advanced on a Miocene alligator from Nebraska. 
In the Division of Insects, two papers by Assistant Curator Rupert 
L. Wenzel were ready for the press at the end of the year, and two 
further papers based on Field Museum material had been accepted 
for publication, one on termitophilous Diptera by Dr. Charles H. 
Seevers of the Central YMCA College, Chicago, and one on 
Mallophaga by Miss Theresa M. Clay, of the British Museum. In 
the Division of Fishes, Curator Alfred C. Weed agreed to prepare 
an account of the mullets for a comprehensive work on the fishes 
of the northwestern Atlantic, and made some studies in preparation. 
In the Division of Anatomy and Osteology, Assistant Curator Davis 
continued the accumulation of drawings and manuscript toward a 
comprehensive account of the anatomy of the giant panda based on 
the dissection of the famous "Su-Lin." 

Various members of the staff attended scientific meetings during 
the year and engaged in studies at other museums. Chief Curator 
Osgood attended the Eighth American Scientific Congress in Wash- 
ington in May, as the representative of the Museum. Curator 
Boulton and Assistant Curator Blake attended the meetings of the 
American Ornithologists' Union in Boston, and Mr. Boulton was 
re-elected treasurer and business manager of the Union. He gave 
an illustrated lecture on the Mandel Caribbean Expedition, and 
Mr. Blake read a paper on the birds of the Brazilian frontier of 
British Guiana. Curator Haas attended the meeting of the American 
Malacologists' Union in Philadelphia in June. Assistant Curator 
Davis visited several eastern museums in October to examine ana- 
tomical exhibitions, and to discuss his important work on the anatomy 
of the giant panda with colleagues engaged in similar studies. 

ACCESSIONS — ZOOLOGY 

The accessions for the year numbered 482, comprising a total of 
41,756 specimens. Classified, these consisted of 1,621 specimens of 
mammals, 7,463 birds, 10,525 birds' eggs, 4,936 amphibians and 
reptiles, 6,487 fishes, 7,384 insects and related forms, and 3,340 lower

paratyi>es of new .species of termitophilous flies from the neotropirs. 

.\ con.'^iderable gift of mollu.^ks and other marine invertebrates 
came from Mr. Hen Casoard, of Gar>-, Indiana. 

The study collections of the Divi.sion of Anatomy and O.steo|og>' 
have grown chiefly through the gift of specimens from the Chicajro 



I 



Department of Zoology 241 

Zoological Society. The Division co-operates closely with the 
Society's Brookfield Zoo, taking charge of animals after they die, 
and arranging for their best scientific use. 

The collections received through Museum expeditions, includ- 
ing collecting of insect parasites from the collections of birds and 
mammals in the Museum's existing collections, amount to 12,021 
specimens. Of these, the most important are the mammals, birds, 
reptiles, fishes, and various invertebrates from Chile, Argentina, 
and Peru, obtained by the Field Museum Magellanic Expedition. 
The Museum bore a minor share of the expense of an expedition to 
Yucatan by Messrs. E. Wyllys Andrews and Melvin A. Traylor, Jr., 
whose large collections have been credited as gifts. The collections 
of birds, mammals, reptiles, fishes, and marine invertebrates made 
by the Mandel Caribbean Expedition amount to more than 1,000 
specimens. 

Exchanges were made during 1940 with the British Museum 
(Natural History), the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Cambridge, 
Massachusetts, and with various individuals. Purchases include 
noteworthy specimens from Mexico, the United States, and Bolivia 
for addition to the reference collection. 

Through the fund established in memory of the late Leslie 
Wheeler, former Trustee of the Museum and Research Associate 
in the Division of Birds, 85 specimens of birds of prey were added to 
the collection. An additional 5,133 study skins from the Bishop 
Collection were received from Dr. Louis B. Bishop, of Pasadena, 
California, supplementing the 35,076 specimens received from this 
source in 1939. 

CATALOGUING, INVENTORYING, AND LABELING — ZOOLOGY 

The entries in the departmental catalogues for 1940 number 
26,559, of which 2,127 are for mammals, 19,371 for birds, 2,565 for rep- 
tiles and amphibians, 157 for fishes, and 2,339 for lower invertebrates. 

Storage space for the reference collection of mammals was 
increased by forty-one cases, eighteen in Room 76 and thirty-three 
in Room 78. A complete rearrangement of the collection, made 
possible by these additional cases, has been undertaken, and about 
half the work of relabeling the drawers and cases completed. The 
reattachment of the original labels to specimens received before 1908 
has continued, and 975 such specimens have been relabeled. Other 
specimens labeled total 8,548 skins and 4,298 skulls in bottles and 
boxes. New index cards typed and old ones retyped total 5,647.

The catalojrue onlrii»s for birds represonl 19,(KS<3 skinft, 220 skele- 
tons, 19 alcoholic specimens, and Ifi sets of ejiRS. The orjiani 
of the reference colUvtion, involvinjf the incorporation of the liiMi";. 
Collection and other recent lar^ie accessions, was a major activity 
of the Division of Hirds in VMO. The assignment of ninety-four 
large spei'imen c.uses on the west gallery of the fourth floor to bird* 
makes possible a complete rearrangement. The families of birds 
Iiste<l in the first two volumes of the Check-list of Birds of the World 
(Strut hionidae to Alcidaei have l)ecn arranged in this space, while 
the remaining families (Pteroclidae to Fringillidaei occupy the cases 
on the third floor in Room 76. 

The work of the Division was gieatly advance^! through the 
services of four volunteer assistants. Mi.«vs Sally I.«iwson, of \'a.ssar 
College, worke<l full time from July to mid-September and finished 
sorting the P.ishop Collei-tion for the catalogues. Mrs. Herman 
Dunlop Smith, of I^ke Poorest, averaged two days a week in ths 
Division throughout the year. Mrs. John A. Holabird and Mifli 
P^lorence Cluett, both of Chicago, devoted several days each week 
to routine work during the latter part of the year. 

A complete rearrangement of the reptile collection was under- 
taken by As.sistant Curator ClifTord H. Pope upon his arrival to 
join the staff of the Museum in June. This was made possible by the 
expan.'^ion of the storage and laboratory .space of the Division of 
Reptiles mentioneil in the VXV^ Report. Many new labels for the 
cases, drawers, and bottles were made during the course of this work. 

Newly catalogued specimens in the Division of Fishes were 
numberwl. label wl. and placet! on the storage shelves, together with 
a considerable number which were identified by Dr. Carl L. Hubbs, 
of the University of Michigan, during his several Nnsits to the 
Museum. 

In the Division of Insects, besides pinning, .spreading when 
necessary, pin labeling, and distributing most of the specimens 
received, a number of butterflies, moths, and flies were tran.sferred 
to new drawers. Much necfied attention was given to specimens in 
alcohol, which were .sorted, labele<^l. placet! in more suitable con- 
tainers, and arranged in sy.stematic order, making them more 
accessible and u.^eful. Spread and respread were I.IT)? butterflies 
and moths, the old bra.ss pins being replaced with japanned pins. 

In the Division of Lower Invertebrates the principal activity 
for the year was also the arrangement of the collection in new cases 
on the fourth floor. In addition to the cataloguing of new material,

with 2,128 entries in the catalogue of mollusks and 211 in that for 
other invertebrates, 1,158 older entries were checked and the lots 
of specimens relabeled. In the course of unpacking the collections 
from storage in the basement of the building, several collections of 
scientific importance have come to light, such as the Sonshine 
collection of mollusks from California, and the uncatalogued Elihu 
Hall collection from various parts of the United States. A capable 
volunteer worker, Mrs. M. J. Taylor, classified, catalogued, and 
labeled most of the collection of echinoderms, but was compelled 
to relinquish her work in May on account of ill health. 

INSTALLATIONS AND REARRANGEMENTS — ZOOLOGY 

The habitat group of northern fur seal (Plate 19) is a notable 
addition to the Hall of Marine Mammals (Hall N). The scene 
depicted is on St. Paul's Island, one of the Pribilof group in the 
Bering Sea. Forty mounted seals are included, showing old bulls 
with their "harems" of females and many small pups. A herd of 
young seals is shown in the background. Among these are some 
of the three-year-old males called "bachelors," the surplus of which 
supplies the market with sealskin furs. Various sea-birds such as 
the auklets and puffins, which nest in the seal rookery, are also 
shown. The materials and studies for the group were collected by 
Staff Taxidermist C. J. Albrecht in 1937, and he prepared them him- 
self, aided by Assistant Taxidermist Frank C. Wonder. The back- 
ground, in which the foggy atmosphere of the Pribilofs is captured 
with extraordinary realism, is by Staff Artist Arthur G. Rueckert. 

Additions to the systematic collection of mammals in Hall 15 
include a Mongolian wild ass mounted by Staff Taxidermist Julius 
Friesser. The case of South American monkeys was revamped by 
Staff Taxidermist W. E. Eigsti, seven new specimens being added; 
it now includes all but one genus of the South American primates. 
Mr. Eigsti also mounted specimens of the Guinea baboon, wombat, 
and Tasmanian devil for the systematic series. 

Mr. Friesser completed the mounting of six African forest hogs 
for a group, to be completed in 1941, with accessories to show their 
African forest habitat. He also mounted a Philippine pig, a river 
hog, and a bush pig for the systematic case of pigs. These were 
supplemented by a reproduction of a babirusa, prepared by Staff 
Taxidermist Leon L. Walters. This was made in celluloid, by the 
special process originated and developed at the Museum by Mr. 
Walters more than twenty years ago, and increasingly used ever 
since that time.

A new hahitat jjroup in Hall 20 has its scene laid at the base of 
sno\v-cappe<l Mount Kjrniont in New Zealand, to provide a setting for 
Mantell's kiwi. The kiwi.s are remarkable fliKhtless birds rhara< 
i.slio of \ew Zealand. The mother bird in the ffroup stands bfM'ic 
a nest which contains its two disproportionately larjje epjrs. Tly 
^oup (Plate 21 ) was prepare<l by Staff Taxidermist John W. Mover, 
with accessories by Preparator Fnink H. Lell, and background by 
Staff Artist Kuwkert. 

In the sx'stematic collection of birds in Hall 21, the introduction 
of a case near the east entrance under the heading "What is a bird? 
forms a step toward the more subjective and educational type of 
exhibit which has become of increasing importance to a logical growth 
of the Museum's public displays. This case shows the place of 
birds among their vertebrate relatives, and demonstrates some of 
the major pe<niliarilies of the bird group, such as the modification 
of the arms into wings, the elaborate feather structure, and the sys- 
tem of air-sacs which per\ade the bo<ly. Much care was expended 
on the preparation of the models for this screen, and on the accon 
panying exj)lanatory labels, by Mi.'vs Nellie H. Starkson, Artist - 
Preparator, under Curator Moulton's super\'ision. The systematic 
series was amplifio<l further by the installation of two screens of 
the ducks of the world, one of the eagles, hawks, and vultures, and 
one of the herons, storks, and ibi.ses, all the work of Mr. Mover. 

A temp<irary exhibit of eggs, base<l upon the recently acquired 
Knickerbocker Collection, was prepared for exhibition in Stanley 
Field Hall at the Piaster season. It attracted much favorable atten- 
tion, and was later removed to the southwest corner of Hall 21 

A considerable number of celluloid models of reptiles and am- 
phibians was fini.-^heti during the year, but none were placed on 
exhibition, pending reamingement of the cases. Staff Taxidermist 
Walters was engaged in the completion of the habitat group of the 
loggerhead turtle, shown laying its eggs at night on a Florida sea 
beach. This group will not he opened until the individual lighting 
of the adjacent systematic cases and the opposite crocodile group, 
planned for completion in 19-11, makes possible the solution of a 
serious problem of reflections. Two cases of enlarged models of 
tadpoles were in an advanced .«^tape at the end of the year. These 
are the work of Preparator Frank H. I>etl and Mr. J. B. Krstolich, and 
embody much research in the use of plastics suitable for this purpKwe. 

Much progress was made in the preparation of fish exhibits in 
1940. The specimens exhibited in Hall 18 were transferred to new 



N. W. Harris Public School Extension 245 

cases in Hall O on the ground floor. New individual labels were 
ordered prepared for the entire collection, and experiments were 
made in the style of the large case labels. The new built-in cases 
with fluorescent lighting are a great improvement over anything 
previously used in the Museum for fishes. The habitat group of 
fishes of the Texas coast was enlarged and improved for its permanent 
installation in Hall 0. It shows the fishes of the sandy bottom and 
their association with the "oyster lumps" which develop in such 
situations. A colorful habitat group of the New England fishes, 
exhibiting the marine life of a tidepool on the rocky coast of Maine, 
was completed during the year. Installation and preparation of 
both systematic collections and groups was the work of Staff Taxi- 
dermist Leon L. Pray. Accessories for the groups were produced 
under Mr. Letl's direction. Hall requires only finishing touches 
and the completion of labels, and is scheduled for opening in 1941. 

Experiments were made by the Division of Insects to decide on 
a style of case, and on labels and other details, for the exhibit of 
insects planned for Hall 18. A small group of Florida tree snails 
was installed among the lower invertebrate exhibits in Hall M. 

The construction of a workroom for the Division of Birds on 
the fourth floor is an especially important improvement in conjunc- 
tion with the establishment of a large share of the bird collection 
in the new cases in the west gallery on that floor, as it provides 
adequate working space accessible to the collections. 

N. W. HARRIS PUBLIC SCHOOL EXTENSION 

Because of the reserve of material acquired in preceding years, 
no extensive collecting was necessary during 1940 to enable the 
work of the Harris Extension to proceed at an active rate. Neverthe- 
less, ten days were spent by staff members in local field work to 
procure specimens needed for immediate use or to add to reserve 
collections. Forty-seven birds were obtained, of which thirty-one 
were mounted for exhibition purposes, and the remainder added 
to reserves. Twenty-seven bird skins were purchased to replace 
an equal number destroyed while on loan at an elementary school. 
Numerous plant specimens, particularly common trees, were col- 
lected for inclusion in the loan herbarium now maintained by this 
Department. 

During the year twenty-four exhibits were prepared, of which 
sixteen were installed in standard-sized cases, and eight in a new 
type of hand case. Worthy of special comment among these exhibits 



24<j KiKi.i) MrsKiM of N'atirai, Histokv Kki'okts. Voi,. 12 

are six relaiinjj to the life of the honeybee in which etfective \. > 
was made of photomacropraphs to show those details of the instil > 
anatomy which are ordinarily pointe<l out in elementary s<i«r"< 
instruction as remarkable inst,'inces of adaptation. Also, in !■ 
cases containin>i realistic mcKlels of a poison ivy plant, tinted phm.,. 
praphs were used to portray a typical case of ivy poisoning The | 
original illustration, also a tinted photograph, was supplied by Dr. 
A. \V. Stillians, of Northwestern I'niversity Me<lical School. 

The new type of hand case was desi^nefi as a container for sn 
specimens which are best examine<i at close range. It is approxi- 
mately 4xl.*^xlS'j inches, is constructed of plywood, and ha> 
metal-bound corners, a hinpe<l lid and suitcase latches. The bott. " 
of the ca.'^e may or may not be covere<^l \v\lh glass, depending on liji- 
nature of the material, and the inside of the lid is suitable for descrip- 
tive matter, charts, or photogniphs. Four .such cases were in.stallH 
with .synoptic collections of insects to illustrate the principal comn. n 
orders, two were installe<i with in.sects directly or indirectly beneficial 
to man's economy, and two were in.stalletl with injurious insect*. 

The remaining .six of the twenty-four cases were in a sen.se rein- 
stallations becau.se the original mounted animal .specimens wert- 
retaine<l. However, .since revisions were radical and extensive, with 
much new material adde<l, they have been counted as new exhibi's. 
The subjects thus treatefl were the prairie dog. prairie chicken, trt* 
sparrow, and hummingbird, of which two cases were prepared. 

Scenic backgrounds painted by a Work Projects Admini.stration 
artist, were added to ten ca.ses. The marker! sui)eriority of painted 
backgrounds over the tinted enlarged photographs extensively u.sed 
heretofore greatly improved the elTect of realism in these habitat 
groups. Considerable work al.so was done to the specimens and 
foregrounds when the new paintings were placed. 

.A hand-powered hydraulic press with electrically heated platenfly I 
capable of exerting a pressure of thirty tons, was purchased to 
facilitate the prrxiuction of celluloid or other plastic casts from ■ 
metal molds. With this machine, the Harris P2xten.sion now em- 
ploys a technique in which high temperatures and great pres.sures are 
used to produce artificial foliage with the quality of goo<i wax leaves, 
yet with the greater strength and durability to be had in nl-i^tjc 
materials. 

Many highly complimentary' letters of appreciation were received 
from teachers and principals who find that the portable Museum 
exhibits aid materially in the teaching of science in the schools.

Fourteen additions were made to the list of those receiving 
Harris Extension cases, and three recipients were removed. The 
net gain of eleven brings the total served at the end of the year 
to 485. Since the lending service of the Museum includes practically 
all of the public schools, increase in the number reached is to be 
expected only through the gradual growth of the public school 
system and the inclusion of more denominational schools and social 
service agencies such as the six Chicago Boys' Clubs and three 
hospital schools added in 1940. 

Thirty-four cases each were delivered during the year to 481 
schools and other Chicago institutions. In addition to the 962 
cases thus kept in constant circulation, twenty-four loans totaling 
sixty cases were made in response to special requests. Thirteen of 
these requests included unattached objects such as bird study 
skins, herbarium sheets, or geological specimens, all of which could 
be handled by pupils, and nine were for standard cases only. Various 
exhibits and specimens were supplied for the elementary school 
science teacher conferences held in the Lecture Hall of the Museum 
under the auspices of the James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond 
Foundation for Public School and Children's Lectures. 

A metal stand with casters was designed to increase the usefulness^ 
of the portable Museum cases in special schools where many pupils 
are confined to beds or wheelchairs, and a trial stand was constructed 
in the Museum shops. It supports two Harris Extension cases in 
a way which enables them to be wheeled into position at bedsides, 
or to be viewed conveniently by a seated person. This type of 
stand will be used by at least ten special schools, and there are 
prospects of its being adopted by many other schools using Harris 
Extension cases. 

The two Museum trucks traveled a total of 11,865 miles in the 
distribution of cases. Such work as was necessary to keep the 
trucks in good mechanical condition, and preserve their appearance, 
was completed during the summer months. 

With a certain minimum of material required to maintain the 
pattern of service which has developed over a period of years, the 
efforts of the Harris Extension staff have been devoted in a large 
degree to the task of re-working old exhibits as well as creating 
new ones. After a few years, damaged or obsolescent material tends 
to accumulate at a rate faster than the preparation of new exhibits 
to replace it. Repairs must be made quickly and continuously in 
order that no deficiency of loan material may be experienced.

Neveriheloss, there was a markc<l retlurtion in the amount of 
damapc to ciises directly attrihut^ihle to accident or misuse in any 
particular school. The front glasses were broken in twenty cases, 
31 per cent less than the previous year: fifteen label frames were 
damaKe<l, a re<iuction of Tf) per cent; and the wcMMJwork of nine 
cabinet^ was injured as against ten in the prece<linK perio<l. These 
figures lose sipnificance, however, in view of the total repairs made 
necessary through wear and tear accumulated over a period of 
time. Kxclusive of complete reinstallations, repairs were made to 
installations in sixty-nine cases, cabinet repairs to eighty-one cases, 
and label frame repairs in 125 instances. Xew bottoms were fittH 
to eijjhty cases, hanger strips were adde<i to ninety-two cases, and 
auxiliary label guides to 108 cases. The two latter items were 
strengthening members calculated to reduce the amount of dama^'e 
sulTcri'fi by the case assembly. The gray or soile<i interiors of 12-'^ 
cabinets were painte<l bull to conform to the standard color in gen- 
eral use in the Museum. 

An additional 116 feet of shelving was constructed in the new 
ground floor storeroom to accommodate those Harris Extension 
cases which have been withheld from circulation for some time but 
which are gradually being restored to usefulness or replaced. 

The usual annual cleaning, polishing, and inspection of cases 
were accomplished in July and August when all of them were in I 
storage in the Museum.

FOrXDATIOX FOR PFBLIC SCHOOL 
AXD rniLDRKXS LFCTFRKS 

In 1940 the James Xelson and Anna Ixiuise Raymond Foundation 
continued the presentation of various programs of motion pictures, 
lectures, tours, and other activities to supplement the educational 
work of the schools and to provide enjoyable and educational hours 
of entertainment for the children. 

Included were the regular spring, summer, and fall series of 
motion picture programs for children shown in the James Simpson 
Theatre, and two special patriotic programs; guide-lecture tours in 
the exhibition halls; four series of special science programs; radio 
follow-up programs; extension lectures given in the classrooms and 
auditoriums of schools; a special course for leaders of recreational 
groups "Recreation Through Xature" — given in co-operation with 



Raymond Foundation 249 

the Leaders' Training School of the Work Projects Administration; 
a series of five talks arranged for the guidance of science teachers in 
the elementary grades, and a series of twelve experimental educa- 
tional programs by television in co-operation with the Zenith Radio 
Corporation. 

Special efforts have been m.ade to fulfill the increasingly great 
number of requests for lectures and tours in the Museum. These 
demands are heaviest during April, May, June, October, and Novem- 
ber, when good weather makes it possible for groups to travel hun- 
dreds of miles. During January, February, and March, when groups 
find it difficult to come to the Museum, the extension lecture service 
is stressed. 

ENTERTAINMENTS FOR CHILDREN — RAYMOND FOUNDATION

The loial number of motion picture programs offered in the 
James Simpson Theatre was twenty-.«;ix. Twenty of these were 
repeated at a second showinj;, which makes the total of proprann 
given forty-six. The attendance at these children's entertainments 
was 29.1 10. Of this number 9,r)2r) attende<i the spring course, 5,ST6 
the summer course, 10,400 the fall series, and 3,309 the special 
patriotic programs. 

Publicity was given to the programs by the Chicago Daily Seirs, 
Chicago Tnhuue, Chicago Ht raid- American . Chicago Daily Times, | 
Doinilnwti Shopping Xeirs, and many neighborhood and suburban 
papers. 

FIKLO MUSEIM STORIKS RAYMOND FOUNDATION 

Two .series of Firifl Museum Stories for Children were prepared 
by members of the staff of the Raymond Foundation. They wen 
illustratwi with line drawings and photographs, each illustration 
being .selected! to add information as well as to make the stor>' more 
attractive. The subject.s of the stories correlated with films shown in 
the programs given in the Theatre, and were of seasonal interest to 
the children. Following are the titles of the stories in each series:

LECTURE TOURS FOR CHILDREN — RAYMOND FOUNDATION 

By means of conducted tours, the use of exhibition halls for 
lassroom work was extended to the following groups : 

Number of 

groups Attendance 

Tours for children of Chicago schools: 

Chicago public schools 446 19,146 

Chicago parochial schools 38 1,709 

Chicago private schools 14 322 

Tours for children of suburban schools: 

Suburban public schools 334 11,704

Tours for special groups of children: 

Children's clubs 40 2,609 

Special science programs 112 5,858 

Miscellaneous 68 2,615 

Thus guide-lecture service was given to 1,079 children's groups, 
ind the aggregate attendance was 44,911, an increase in number of 
>,736 over 1939. 

In a number of instances, the schools and groups receiving such 
;ervice were also given illustrated talks and discussions in the lecture 
lall preceding the tour in the exhibition halls. These talks and 
pictures provided the background for a better understanding of the 
exhibits in the Museum halls. The total number of these supple- 
.Tientary lectures was 165, and they were attended by 11,693 children. 

f As in years past, many groups came in from outside the state, 
especially during the months of April, May, September, and October. 
The principal influx of such groups came from communities in 
Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana. 

The Museum was host on December 3 and 5 to parties of 4-H 
Club boys and girls who were delegates to the National Congress of 
4-H Clubs held in Chicago. These groups numbered 772 girls and 
750 boys. A flood of letters has been received from these fine young 
citizens expressing their appreciation for Field Museum's part in 
their entertainment. 

SCIENCE PROGRAMS — RAYMOND FOUNDATION 

In the last few years a greater emphasis has been placed on 
science in the schools of the Chicago region. To meet the greater 
need thus engendered for lectures, tours, and supplementary mate-

Four of the six programs were repeated, making a total of ten 
programs with an attendance of 849. 

The program on "Trees and Their Products" was repeated by 
request at the Fourth Annual Broadcast Conference held at the 
Congress Hotel early in December for the benefit of the 1,200 visiting 
delegates. This demonstration was made as similar as possible to 
the original program in Field Museum. 

EXTENSION LECTURES — RAYMOND FOUNDATION 

Groups in educational institutions were offered extension lectures 

as in the past. These lectures, illustrated with slides, were given in 

classrooms, laboratories, and assemblies. At the conclusion of 

lectures, if time permitted, an open discussion followed in which 

teachers and students were invited to ask questions and participate 

in the discussion led by the Field Museum speaker. The following 

subjects were offered to high school groups:

Administration. A course, "Recreation through Nature," given a* 
the Museum, consisted of ten sessions during which ways of iv ' 
inp nature through recreation were (liscusse<i and demonstruif\i. 
Museum exhibits and slides were use<l in these demonstrations. The 
total attendance at the ten meetings was 508. 

In the Sixth Annual Recreation Conference sponsored by the 
Chicago Recreation Commission, a member of the Raymond Four, 
dation staff, Mrs. I^eota G. Thomas, was invited to participate ir. 
"Information Please." This quiz program, with a board of experts t- 
answer the questions, was modelwi on a well-known radio feature pn

T?:ArnER.s' training coursk ray.mond foundation 

As in 1939, the science super\'isors and science consultants of th^ 
Chicago Public Schools co-operated with Field Museum in pn 
ing a .series of talks and tours for teachers conducting science cour -< 
in grades from the third to the eighth inclu.sive. These teachers 
particularly intereste<i in knowing what the Museum had to olU 
them and their students in supplementary material, and how t 
make u.se of it. The following five programs were offeree!:

SUMMARY OF ATTENDANCK AT KNTI-IRTAINMENTS, LECTIRF:S, ETf. 

RAYMOND FOUNDATION 

In all, the various activities of the Raymond Foundation provided 
senicea for a grand total of 2,16.3 ja"oups with an ajiprejfate attend- 
ance of 243,256 persons. 

The effort to brinp the greatest possible number of people to th« 
Museum, and re<luce the number reache<l extra-murally resulted ir 
an increase of 157 groups and 21,882 persons served at the Mu.'ieum 
and a decrea.se of 99 in the number of extension lectures and 47,391 
in the number of persons reached outside.

sons, of whom 9,908 attended the spring series and 10,289 the fall 
series. Included in the aggregate attendance were 2,313 Members 
of the Museum. 

LAYMAN LECTURES 

During 1940 the Sunday afternoon lectures presented by Mr. 
Paul G. Dallwig, The Layman Lecturer, attained the highest 
point of attendance since their inauguration in October, 1937. 
Thirty regular lectures were given, with an aggregate of 2,784 per- 
sons attending, or an average of 93 to each party. In addition, one 
special lecture was given for a group of 67 out-of-town visitors. 
Because of necessary restrictions on the size of the groups, to make it 
practicable to conduct them through the halls containing exhibits 
illustrating Mr. Dallwig's lectures, the number actually attending 
was far below the number applying for reservations. In most 
instances reservations had to be made several weeks in advance. 
Even though the permitted size of the parties was somewhat increased 
over previous years, it was impossible to meet more than a portion 
of the requests for reservations.

LIlUiAIvV 

During 1*>10 the Library continued to make progress both in 
expanding its collections and increasing its ,«;er\ices to .scientists and 
the public in genenil. Approximately 120. <^M) btxiks and pamphieti, 
divide<l among the (Jenerul Librarj' and the four departments, now 
make up the collection. 

The Librar>- der>ends for its growth to a large extent on the 
exchanges of publications with other institutions, and in IIMO, at 
in previous ye:irs. many im|)ortant additions have been made through 
this merlium. However, because of war in K^urope and Asia, e% 
changes from foreign countries have been curtailed, and in many 
instances su.spended entirely, to the great detriment of this an'? 



Library 259 

other reference libraries. But in this country, at least, some new 
arrangements for valuable exchanges have been negotiated with 
mutual benefit to Field Museum and the co-operating institutions. 

Some 2,800 books were accessioned, and for these, as well as 
2,172 pamphlets received, there have been written 23,966 cards. 
These include cards which have been distributed in the files of the 
General Library and also in the departmental libraries. 

It has been noted with gratification that more and more students 
each year are using the resources of Field Museum's Library for 
assistance in their studies. In 1940 more than twice as many availed 
themselves of the opportunities presented as in 1939. Some of the 
Library's visitors have come from as far as the east and west coasts 
of the countrj', to consult books not available in other libraries. 

The Union List of Serials, an almost indispensable reference aid, 
is in process of revision, and all libraries participating (of which this 
is one) have been assisting in the task by work on their individual 
lists. This has taken a good deal of the Library staff's time, but it 
is one of the "musts" for successful reference work. Publication of 
the new Union List is anticipated some time in 1941. 

The disposition of duplicate material in an advantageous manner 
is always an important problem for libraries, and requires much 
attention. The Museum Library during the past year considerably 
reduced such material in its collections, both by sales and by ex- 
changes. Much satisfaction is derived from this accomplishment 
because the material has thus been placed where it can be of use in 
:ompleting files in other libraries. 

For a long time it has been desired that the reading room should 
36 located where it would be more convenient to visitors arriving 
m the passenger elevator. Such relocation is now being accom- 
Dlished by reconstructing and refurnishing the stack room as a 
-eading room, and moving the book stacks into the present reading 
"oom, a task which will be completed early in 1941. The new reading 
•oom, in addition to being more conveniently arranged, will be 
provided with an entirely new system of fluorescent lighting much 
nore effective and agreeable for readers. The fluorescent lights are 
)eing installed in both the reading room and in the stacks. Revision 
>f the arrangement of the Library rooms has provided opportunity 
replace the wooden stacks with modern steel ones (grained and 
tained like mahogany), and to improve working conditions in a 
nanner which will increase efficiency of all operations.

It has bot»n the aim of the Libniry each year to fill out a few of 
it.H incomplete files of periodicals, and in 1940 it had the Rotxl fortune 
to obtain some desidenita of lon^ standing- The Zoologist, completed 
by the purchase of seventy-four volumes, is perhaps the outstan-' • ■ 
example. The much ne<Mle<i Sprcinl /'n/wr.s of the (ieoUtgical <'■ 
of America were al.so purcha.'^.'<i. A subscription was ent* : 
CuUureel Indie, bejrinninji with the first volume. Sub.scriptions -. 
taken als<i for the Sntiimnl Unrticulturnl Magazine, the HuUetin f 
the American Aasttciatinn of Petroleum (icoUtgists, the Journal i 
Geomorphologn, and the Botanical Reriew. Among interesting pur 
chases of b(M^ks were: Kern Institute, Annual liibliographu of In' 
Archarology: Reeve, Conchologia Ironira 20 vols. >; Institut Fran<..i; 
Damas. Mrmoire!< (4 vols. », and Documents d'Etudes Orien''' 
(7 vols. I ; Kncyclofxiedia of Islam; a reprint of Andreas \*f*s;i . .

Animal, h\s Xiinres (2 vols.); Ix» May, Buddhist Art in Siam 
Cordillera Expedition 1901 1902 , and al.so the popular account 
of the last. 

Mr. Stanley Field. President of the Mu.seum. again presented 
the year's issues of the weekly Illnstratrd lyondon \eus, a periodical 
of value for its scientific articles and pictures, especially in the f*^*''' 
of archaeolog>'. The Director presenter! numerous publicati 
including the files of various peri(xlicals. From time to time thr< 
most of the year Dr. Albert H. I>ewis, Curator of Melanesian Kthnol- 
ogy, presente<l b(X)ks of travel, and after his death in October tlv 
Mu.seum purcha.'^eil a collection of Wf)rks from his libran.*, man; 
of which concerne<l countries he had visited on the Jaseph N*. Fiel- 
South Pacific Kxpe<lition il909 13 . Dr. Henry Field. Curator oi 
Phy.sical .Anthropology, regularly contributes! .«;everal current period 
icals as well as many books that were of interest to members of th' 
staff. Dr. Field al.so presenter! a fine collection of books, mar 
of them rare and beautifully bound volumes of the seventeenth an' 
eighteenth centuries. These include books of travel, science, histor} 
and some of the classics. Dr. Wilfre^l H. Osgood. Chief Curator 
of Zoolog>', presenter! a copy of Mis Viajes a la Tierra del Fufg< 
by Alberto M. de Agostini. This book has a wealth of exce ' 
illustrations, and is a comprehensive account of what is kntns 
of the Chilean and Argentinian island at the extreme southern ti} 
of South America. 

Mr. Emil Liljeblad, former Assistant Curator of Insects, presents

early date, and they form a notable addition to the entomological 
division. Mr. Bert E. Grove, of the Raymond Foundation staff, 
gave eleven scrapbooks containing historical records of Chicago's 
Century of Progress Exposition (1933-34). He also gave several 
scientific books of the early nineteenth century. Dr. E. E. Sherff, 
Research Associate in Systematic Botany, as in previous years 
generously contributed many botanical monographs as well as parts 
of botanical periodicals. Among these were a copy of Dr. Sherff's 
Labordia printed on special paper, a copy of DeCandolle's Origine 
des Plantes CuUivees (fourth edition), and works on the flora of 
different parts of the world. 

Mr. Karl P. Schmidt, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, 
presented many maps secured on expeditions to South America. 
He also contributed current periodicals, and various books on 
Reptilia. Mr. Henry W. Nichols, Chief Curator of Geology, presented 
files of periodicals, including many complete sets, which are difficult 
to obtain. The Chemical Abstracts of the American Chemical 
Society are among those especially well represented — the first two 
volumes are exceedingly rare, and this set contains Volume 2. 
Mr. Paul C. Standley, Curator of the Herbarium, and Dr. Julian 
A. Steyermark, Assistant Curator of the Herbarium, also presented 
desirable books. Among Dr. Steyermark's gifts were copies of 
two new books of his own authorship. Spring Flora of Missouri, 
and An Annotated List of the Flowering Plants of Missouri. 

The Carnegie Institution of Washington continued to send its 
valuable publications which are of much use for reference in connec- 
tion with work conducted here. Several years ago Mr. Kojiro Abe, 
of Mikage-Hyogoken, Japan, presented the Library with Volume 1 
of Soraikwan-kinsho, a much appreciated work, and in 1940 he gave 
Volume 2. The publishers of the Naturaliste Canadien sent many 
of the numbers of this useful periodical. Other friends of the Museum 
have given many valuable works which add greatly to the usefulness 
of the Library. The Museum gratefully acknowledges all these. 

The Library is indebted to various learned institutions for the 
loan of publications needed for special consultation. Among these 
are the John Crerar Library, Chicago; the Libraries of the University 
of Chicago; the Library of Congress; the United States Department 
of Agriculture; Harvard University (Libraries of the Peabody 
Museum, of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, and of the 
Gray Herbarium); the Missouri Botanical Garden; Rochester Uni- 
versity Library, and Columbia University Library. The Museum

PrBLICATIONS AND PRIXTIXG 

As is customary each year, the publications of F'ield Museum 
were generously distribute<l during 1940. The Museum sent i 
institutions and individual scientists on iLs domestic exchange list, 
and to about half of its foreign exchanges, 11,782 copies of scientif: 
publications. 1.142 leaflets. 984 miscellaneous publications ar 
pamphlets, and r)(M) copies of large maps relative to tribal distribution 
in the Near P^ast. Shipment to the other portion of the foreign 
exchanges various European, Asiatic, and African institutions 
mu.seums, libraries, and scientists was of necessity withheld becau 
of unsettled conditions abroad. However, the publications in thej-' 
consignments have been prepared for transmittal and stored to auii 
more favorable shipping conditions. 

To Members of the Museum 3,759 copies of the Annual Report 
the Director for 1939, and 602 copies of leaflets were sent. 

Sales during the year totaled 1,923 scientific publications, 7,( 
leaflets, and 13,321 miscellaneous publications and pamphlets, su*"*" 
as Guides, Handb(M)ks, and Memoirs. 

An incrciLse of twenty-one was made in the number of names oi_ 
institutions and scientists on the Museum's exchange lists. 

Twenty-two large boxes and three cartons cont<iining 4,458 im 
vidually addresse<i envelope parcels, 354 wrapi>e<l packages of publ 
cations, and 135 tubes containing maps, were shipped to the Smil 
sonian Institution at Washington, D.C, for distribution to th< 
foreign countries to which it was possible to forward con.signmentf 
during 1940. Field Museum gratefully acknowle<iges the cordiai 
ro-operation of the international exchange bureau in effectioi 
deliveries. 

The publications held for the present time, but destined f< 
foreign distribution at the end of the war, total 6.899. These bookl 
together with 156 maps, have been packed in 2.229 addressed env© 
lopes and 383 UTap|>ed packages, and are stored in eighteen U 
boxes. 



Publications and Printing 263 

For future sales and other distribution, 21,989 copies of various 
publications and leaflets, and 768 maps, were wrapped in packages, 
labeled, and stored in the stock room. 

One new leaflet was added to the Botany Series — The Story of 
Food Plants, by Dr. B. E. Dahlgren, Chief Curator of Botany, as 
illustrated in Field Museum by a series of murals painted by Julius 
Moessel. Reproductions of the murals appear in the leaflet, one of 
them from a photograph in natural colors by Mr. Clarence B. 
Mitchell, the Museum's Research Associate in Photography. 

To the Anthropology Series of Leaflets was added Ancient Seals 
of the Near East, by Richard A. Martin, Curator of Near Eastern 
Archaeology. The leaflet contains collotype plates of certain exhibits 
in the new Hall of Babylonian Archaeology (Hall K). 

The sales of The Races of Mankind and Prehistoric Man totaled 
1,410 copies, again exceeding the number of sales of any other two 
leaflets, as has been the case each year since these two booklets first 
were pubHshed in 1933. 

The total number of post card sales during 1940 was 83,050, of 
which 8,904 were grouped into 506 sets. 

The year's production of the Division of Printing included 
twenty-five new numbers in the Museum's regular publication series. 
These comprised 2,096 pages of type composition. Five of these 
were anthropological in subject matter, nine botanical, three geo- 
logical, seven zoological, and one was the Annual Report of the 
Director for 1939. The aggregate number of copies of these printed 
by Field Museum Press was 25,426. One botanical index consisting 
of 26 pages (827 copies) and one new number in the Museum Tech- 
nique Series consisting of 22 pages (927 copies) also were printed. 
Two new leaflets were issued, one on a botanical and one on an 
anthropological subject, and one botanical leaflet was reprinted. 
The number of pages in these three leaflets was 108 and the copies 
aggregated 6,460. A reprint of the nineteenth edition, and a revised 
edition (the twentieth) of the General Guide, consisting of 56 pages 
and ten illustrations each, were issued, followed by a reprint of the 
latter, the three printings totaling 11,000 copies. A reprint of 
the eighth edition and printing of the ninth edition of the Handbook 
of Field Museum, each containing 76 pages, totaled 3,590 copies. An 
anthropological Memoir consisting of 284 pages was issued. The 
total number of pages printed in all books was 2,856, and the total 
of copies issued was 48,051.

I'HOTOCRArnV AND ILU'STRATION 

The pnxluction of the Division of Photography during 1940 
totaled 21,738 items, which includf^ negatives, prints, bromide 
enlargement5, lantern slides, transparencies, etc. A ver>* small 
percentage of these were prints, enlargement,'^, and slides for sales 
on order.-^ received from the public, from publishers, and from other 
institutions, but well over 97 per cent were to fulfill refjuiremente 
of the various departments and divisions of the Museum. 

Of the total production, the Mu.seum staff photographer and 
his assistant were responsible for 10,7G() items. Workers assigned 
by the fe<ieral Work Projects Administration were respon.sible for 
the remainder, consisting chiefly of the making of prints of a routine 
character. These were largely prints of t>'pe specimens of plants 
for the Herbarium from negatives secure<l in Kurope through the 
recently concluded ten-year project of the Department of Botany. 
Photographic work re^juiring special skill and attention was dona 
by the Museum's own stall men. 

The photogniphic files of the Museum now contain nearly 90,000 
negatives, and the task of classifying, indexing, and numberii 
negatives and prints has become a major one, and a ver>' urgently 
necessan.' one in order that a systematic order and full usefulnt 
of this material may be maintained!. This work, as for sever 
years past, has been continued by clerical helpers furnished by th 
WP.\, and during U»40 it involved approximately 80,000 iter 
handled or operations performed. 

A total of 720,378 prints was produce^l by the Mu.«*eum Colli 
typer during 1940. These included illustrations for publicatioi 
and leaflets, covers for books and pamphlets, picture post 
hp.idings for lecture posters, and miscellaneous items. 

The Museum Illustrator and his assistant performed a gre 
amount of miscellaneous work, including the dra\\'ing of 74 illustra-j 



Maintenance and Construction 267 

tions for publications, slides, labels, transparencies, etc. ; the drawing, 
lettering, and coloring of 57 maps; the coloring of 279 stereopticon 
slides; the retouching of 134 photographs; the blocking of 127 
photographic negatives, and such items as rough sketches for a 
book of colored photographs, cutting stencils, etching negatives, 
lettering, tinting photographs, tooling cuts, etc. 

MAINTENANCE AND CONSTRUCTION 

Comment has been made, in the Introduction to this Report, 
upon some of the most outstanding tasks undertaken during the year 
towards proper maintenance of the Museum building. Following 
is a summary of other principal accomphshments: 

Seventeen wdndow sashes and frames on the fourth floor were 
replaced. The entire third and fourth floor roofs, and the greater 
portion of the first floor covered skylights, were re-coated with 
fibered asphalt roofing. Worn linoleum in the Cafeteria and the 
passenger elevator was replaced. The Cafeteria floor and the rubber

and repairs carried out, and new equipment was supplied in the office 
of the secretary to the President, the offices of the Director and his 
secretarj^, the Raymond Foundation office, the Lecture Hall, and 
various other parts of the building. The sashes and frames of the 
boiler room windows were repaired and painted, and the roof of 
this room was caulked. An area adjacent to Hall J was reconditioned 
for use as a children's cloak room. 

Cases and screens were prepared for various special exhibits. 
The Museum's large information signs outside the building were 
repaired, cleaned, and reset. The flagpoles in front of the north 
terrace of the Museum were thoroughly reconditioned; the cast 
bronze balls surmounting them, 19 inches in diameter, and weighing 
195 pounds apiece, were removed for the application of new gold 
leaf, after which they were reinstalled. The west pole, which had 
developed a slight lean, was straightened and reset; checking of the 
timber in both poles was "pointed up"; and both were repainted 
and equipped with new sheave bushings and halyards.

The program. in.stitute<i in 1939, of improving illumination 
exhibition halls, offices, and workshops by application of technique 
employing the new tj'pes of tubular fluorescent lights, was continue 
during 1940 in various parts of the building. Altogether, 1,31 
fluorescent lighting units were installed during the year. Of the 
468 were used in the Hall of Kg>'ptian Archae<)log>- fHall Ji, 41 
in Ernest R. (iraham Hall < Hall 38 . and 207 in George T. ar 
P'rances Gaylord Smith Hall Hall 2-1 . This change made possibi 
the removal of the old ceiling fixtures and resulted in much improvi 
ment in the appearance of the halls.

Fluorescent lights were installed in coves around the ceiling. Pro- 
vision was also made for stack lighting. Nine fluorescent units 
were installed in Room 87 on the third floor, and six portable lamps 
were made for the Department of Zoology. The Division of Print- 
ing was equipped with fluorescent lights, and a number of individual 
installations were made throughout the building. 

Frederick J, V. Skiff Hall (Hall 37) was completely rewired to 
provide outlets for individually lighted cases. A total of 600 feet of 
new raceway and 1,500 feet of wire were required for this purpose. 

A new power feeder and distributing panel box were installed 
in the Division of Printing to care for the additional load required 
by a new typecasting machine purchased during the year. Various 
repairs and improvements were made on presses and other machinery 
used in the Division. 

The mezzanine storage space on the fourth floor was wired for 
lights, 150 feet of conduit and thirty outlets being installed. Ten 
fixtures in the Lecture Hall were replaced with a more efficient 
type. New circuits were run into several work rooms to supply 
current required for new equipment. Twenty-eight drop cords 
were installed throughout the third floor. 

Work was begun on the necessary equipment for the "X-raying 
a mummy" exhibit planned for Hall J. One hundred and fifty feet 
of drain pipe, 80 feet of water pipe, and 350 feet of conduit and 
feeder cables for electricity are required for this project. 

Included among special services performed for the Department 
of Anthropology were completion and installation of four cases in 
Joseph N. Field Hall (Hall A) for exhibits of tall carved ancestral 
figures and drums from Melanesia. A new exhibition case was con-

wvrv (listributo<l through the usual channels, and were publishe<I in 
the sevenil ]zrv:i[ metropolitan dailies of Chicapo, and in many other 
me<iia. All releases with more than Kx'al interest were carried ir 
the wire and mail services of such national and international new

assivrntxi their stall writers and photojjraphers to follow up the 8torie> 
submitte<i by the Mu.seum and exi)and upon them. Occasionally 
Museum story was even made the subject of an editorial. 

Attention was piven in the Mu.'^um's publicity efforts not onl 
U) the metropolitan newspapers and nation-wide news a^jencies. bii 
al.s<i to reaching the many jjroups who read sevenil hundred c •■ 
munity papers publishe<i for the populations of distinct neigl. 
hcHxIs within the city, foreij^n lan^uape new.*;papers circulating; an 
Chicapoans of a wide variety of national origins, and the princip.i 
papers j)ublishe<i in meslium-sized cities of Illinois and neighborin, 
states, particularly those within the Chicapo suburban area. New 
releases from the Museum covere<i all such subjects as e,xpe<iition^ 
research, new e.xhibits, lectures, children's programs, and mi 
laneous activities of the institution. For their co-operation in V- 
inp the public informe<i repardinp the Mu.^^eum. spei'ial appreci.i 
is due to the (liicnqn Daily Sens, Chicago Daily Times, Chi 
Tribune, Chicago flrrahl-American, Chicago Journal of (^omm- 
and Dountnwn Shopping \eirs. Among local weekly period: 
giving the Mu.seum much desinible publicity were the Down'

The monthly bulletin. Field Museum Sews, publi.shed for th' 
Members of the Mu.^um, w.-us continues] in the enlarged fom 
inaugurated in the precetling year, and even.' effort was made cor 
stantly to improve the quality of articles and illustrations. Tw« 
i.<vsues, September and December, were graced by four-color illustra 
tions of selected mural paintings from the series by Julius Moesse 
(Mexican Market Scene, and Camel Caravan Xorth of the Persian 
Gulf ^ This was made possible by u.se of some of the special proces- 
plates generously presentesl by Mr. Clarence B. Mitchell, th* 
Museum's Research Associate in Photography, who was respon.sibl* 
also for making the artistic color photographs. Such plates, provide^ 
by Mr. Mitchell, had made possible previous color work in the AVif 
in 1938 and 1939. 



Public Relations 273 

The 1940 volume of the News constituted the eleventh since 
publication of the periodical was begun and, as in past years, copies 
were distributed to all Members promptly and regularly at the 
beginning of each month. This bulletin, in addition to keeping the 
membership informed about Museum activities, supplements the 
mimeographed news releases circulated by the Division of Public 
Relations, and many of the articles in it are reprinted or quoted in 
newspapers and magazines. It also serves as an exchange medium 
in the Museum's relations with similar institutions all over the world. 

The arrangements with the General Electric X-ray Corporation 
whereby an Egj^ptian mummy was lent for display in that company's 
fluoroscopic exhibit at the New York World's Fair, were renewed 
for the second year of the fair. The exhibit was improved, and the 
Museum was featured more prominently by the addition of a lecture 
which was heard by millions of visitors to the fair from special 
records automatically transmitted by a sound machine synchronized 
with the operation of the X-ray apparatus. Following the close of 
the fair, the General Electric Company presented the fluoroscopic 
equipment to the Museum, and it will be installed with the mummy 
as a feature of the Egyptian Hall (Hall J) next year. It alternately 
shows the mummy's exterior and the skeleton inside. 

Notable as a publicity project, as well as for its educational 
value, was the series of radio programs presented by the Museum 
under the title "How Do You Know?" This series of weekly drama- 
tized broadcasts on scientific subjects, which ran from January 25 
to June 13, was made possible by the co-operation of the National 
Broadcasting Company and the University Broadcasting Council. 
The series was presented from coast to coast over stations on the 
Blue Network of that company. Members of the Museum staff con- 
tributed the scientific data upon which the programs were based, 
and expert radio technique in presentation of the programs was 
furnished by the National Broadcasting Council, which provided a 
skilled script writer, Mr. William C. Hodapp, and actors and ac- 
tresses for the casts required in the various dramatizations. The 
programs were expertly produced under the supervision of Miss 
Judith Waller, Chicago Educational Director for the National 
Broadcasting Company. 

The Museum received further publicity through other broad- 
casts on various stations and networks, and through a series of tele- 
vision programs presented in co-operation with the Zenith Radio 
Corporation. Attention was directed to this institution likewise, as 



274 FiKi.n MrsKiM of NATtKAi, History Kkports, Vol. 12 

in past years, by placards a«lvertisinj; Museum Uvlurcs and exhibits. 
These were displaye<l in ears and .stations of various transportalion 
comiKinies, and in hotels, department stores, libraries, travel bureau% 
office buiidinjrs, .sch(H)l.s. and other public institutions. Throuj^ 
these .s.'ime orRani/^itions. many thou.sands of folders announcing iht 
Sunday afternoon le<tures presentetl by Mr. Paul (i. Dallwijj, tht 
I^ayman IxH-turer. and other folders containing information about 
Mu!^eum exhibits, were distribulcfl both to residents of Chicago 
and travelers visiting the city. Spe<"ial appreciation for their co--"- 
emtion in advertising the Mu.^eum i.*; due to the Chicago, Aurora ...^ 
Elgin Railroad, the Chicago. North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad, 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Lines, the Chicago and North Western 
Railway, the Illinois Central System, and the Chicago Surface Lines. 
Following its custom of many years, the Museum sent invitation 
and folders to the delegates attending several hundred convention 
held in Chicago. 

The Mu.seum was representee! during the year by its I'ublp 
Relations Counsel at the meetings of the newly formed Chicago 
Conference on Association Tublicity. This is an organization wh- • 
purpo.st> is to promote better {)ress and radio relations for ii.. 
educational, public health and welfare, and other non-rnmmerri.i, 
institutions. 

DIVISION OF MFMBKRSHIPS 

It is most gnitifying again to report an increase in the numb* 
of Mu.seum Members. During 1940 there were 411 new Member 
enrolled, as against a loss of 862 Members incurred through tran.sfer 
cancellations, and deaths. The total net number of membership 
as of December 31 . 1940. was 4,225. An expression of deep apprecia- 
tion and gnititude is due the many Members who have continued 
their loyal support of the institution, and al.so to the new Members 
who have become associated with the cultural activities of the 
Museum. The increasing burdens of taxation imposed on citizen 
today present an important difficulty, and make all the more laudab 
the contributions of those who continue their support of civi 
activities such as mu.'^eums. The continuance and expan.sion of 
the educational program of this institution is in large part dependeiv 
upon the support of Members. 

For their past support and interest, an expression of apprecia- 
tion is due those Members who found it neces.«iary to discontinue 
their memberships, and an invitation is extended to them to avail
