Annual Report 

of the Director 

To the Trustees: 

I have the honor to present a report of the operation of the Museum 
for the year ending December 31, 1949. 

Care and preservation of the building and its contents came in 
for major study, which resulted in heavy expenditures being made 
to block the ravages of time and climate. Early in the year it be- 
came evident that the Museum heating plant, more than thirty years 
old, would require rebuilding or replacement because of hard usage 
and obsolescence. A contract was thereupon entered into for new 
modern boilers that were estimated approximately to cost $182,000. 
Of this sum, $130,791.52 was paid out during 1949, $10,000 being 
charged to current operating expenses and the balance of $120,791.52 
being charged to a previously established "Reserve for Depreciation 
of Mechanical Plant." The reserve fund declined during the year 
from $208,572.99 to $87,782.78. As a result of the change the 
Museum's heating equipment is in superior condition, and, owing 
to the greater efficiency of modern boilers, economies are being 
realized in lower costs of fuel and maintenance charges. 

Gradual settling of the filled land surrounding the Museum had 
during the past thirty-five years brought about a sinking of the 
terrace walks to a point where they had become uneven and, in 
some measure, dangerous. The situation was remedied by the 
application of a black top-covering that, in addition to giving safe 


and ample approaches to the building, provided a completely water- 
proof topping to the areas affected. The installation of air-con- 
ditioning equipment promises longer life to the Museum's extensive 
collection of motion-picture films and photographic negatives by 
controlling both the heat and the humidity in the storage area. 
Continuation of tuckpointing and the addition of lightning-rod pro- 
tection completes the program of building rehabilitation undertaken 
as soon after the war as it was possible to obtain materials. Except 
for changes necessitated by expansion and operating requirements 
the maintenance of the building in the immediate future, while still 
extensive, may be looked upon as normal. 


Stanley Field, President of Chicago Natural History Museum, was 
re-elected at the Annual Meeting of the Board of Trustees in January 
to serve for his forty-first consecutive year. All other officers were 
Hkewise re-elected. They are: Marshall Field, First Vice-President; 
Albert B. Dick, Jr., Second Vice-President; Samuel Insull, Jr., Third 
Vice-President; Solomon A. Smith, Treasurer; Clifford C. Gregg, 
Secretary; and John R. Millar, Assistant Secretary. 


It is regretted that only a slight net increase can be reported for 
1949 in the number of new Members of the Museum. The total 
number of Members at the close of 1949 was 4,782. The number of 
Members in each membership classification was as follows: Bene- 
factors — 23; Honorary Members — 8; Patrons — 18; Corresponding 
Members — 6; Contributors — 168; Corporate Members — 41; Life Mem- 
bers — 168; N on-Resident Life Members — 15; Associate Members — • 
2,336; N on-Resident Associate Members — 11; Sustaining Members — 
22; Annual Members — 1,966. The names of all Members of the 
Museum in 1949 are listed at the end of this Report. 

Grateful appreciation is here expressed to the Members of the 
Museum for loyal support that has helped to make possible the prog- 
ress and continuation of the work of this institution. An expression 
of appreciation for past support is given also to those Members who, 
for various reasons, found it necessary to discontinue their mem- 
berships. It is hoped that whenever they find it favorable to do so 
they will again become Members and resume their association with 
the activities of the Museum. 



The popularity of the lecture programs for adults presented by the 
Museum in spring and fall is indicated by an increased attendance 
this year of almost 4,000 people, the total recorded attendance for 
the year being 18,888. It is interesting to note the great improve- 
ment in quality of portrayal that has taken place over a period of 
years. When the Museum began its series of lectures late in the 
19th century, the presentations were either unillustrated or illus- 
trated with black-and-white slides. Later the 35mm motion picture 
brought about a complete change in our offerings, while today the 
lectures are habitually illustrated either with color slides or 16mm 
motion pictures in color. So, too, the technical lecture has given 
way to lectures that present scientifically accurate information in 
language readily acceptable to the general public. The lectures this 
year, as usual, offered a wide range of subject matter. 


For the twenty-third successive year attendance at the Museum 
exceeded a million. The total number of visitors in 1949 was 
1,145,359, of which number 1,002,580 were admitted without charge 
because they came on free admission days or belonged to classifica- 
tions admitted free on all days — school children, students, teachers, 
members of the armed forces of the United Nations, and Members 
of this Museum. (For comparative attendance statistics and door 
receipts for 1948 and 1949, see page 87.) 

The number of out-of-Chicago school groups visiting the Museum 
during the spring months reached an all-time high in May of 1949. 
These groups, which each year are steadily increasing in number as 
regular visitors of the Museum, come by bus, train, and automobile, 
and many of them start at three or four o'clock in the morning in 
order to spend a day in the Museum. Members of 4-H Clubs repre- 
senting communities in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and all parts of the 
United States, who win their trips to the International Livestock 
Exposition in Chicago by constructive work in their own 4-H 
Clubs, again were welcome visitors in the Museum. Of all the young 
people who visited the Museum during the year these 1,200 teen-age 
boys and girls were among the most appreciative and by their conduct 
demonstrated their qualifications as chosen leaders. The Museum 
was host also to a number of organizations, among them the 
American Association of Museums during its annual meeting in 
Chicago and the Illinois Audubon Society. 



The James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation has 
continued its ever-widening plan of offering programs and infor- 
mation of all kinds to individuals and groups both in the Museum 
and in its extension service. These programs consist of many com- 
binations of tours, lectures, motion pictures, demonstrations, printed 
stories, radio stories, and illustrated extension lectures in the schools. 

Many revisions and additions were made in the extension- 
lecture series. One lecture, "Chicago's Green Mantle," was com- 
pletely reorganized with the addition of an excellent color motion- 
picture of the growth and movement of plants. One entirely new 
lecture, "Indian Folk Art," was added. This lecture demonstrates 
in still and motion pictures how art was an integral part of the daily 
and ceremonial life of the North American Indians. Two series of 
"Museum Stories for Children" were published in connection with 
the spring and fall series of motion pictures for children. The spring

and animals, school children point out fossils in the marble of the Museum floor. 


series, on living giants, described the biggest mammal, snake, lizard, 
bird, fish, invertebrate, tree, and grass. The fall series was on 
children of Indian America and included stories about the children 
of the clifi" dwellers, Aztecs, Mayas, and Incas. 

Raymond Foundation again co-operated with the Radio Council 
of the Chicago Public Schools in presenting eight programs in the 
Museum following radio broadcasts. These programs provided 
additional information on the radio subjects as well as opportunity 
for the students to see and study the materials discussed. Co-opera- 
tion continued with radio station WCFL, from which a weekly 
children's story is broadcast on "Children's Corner." Fifty-one 
stories were written for this program and broadcast during the year. 
A television sketch on primitive hats was presented just before 
Easter over station WGN-TV. 

A summary of all activities of Raymond Foundation for the year,

S. C. Johnson and Sons, Incorporated, of Racine, Wisconsin, gave 
$4,000 to the Museum to be used for research on wax-bearing palms. 
Elmer J. Richards and Donald Richards, Research Associate in 
Cryptogamic Botany, of Chicago, each made an additional gift of 
$5,000 to be used for the purchase of specimens for the cryptogamic 
herbarium. A. Rush Watkins, of Chicago, added $2,000 to The 
Rush Watkins Zoological Expedition Fund. Dr. Maurice L. Richard- 
son, of Lansing, Michigan, added $1,250 to The Maurice L. Richard- 
son Paleontological Fund. C. Suydam Cutting, of New York, a 
Patron of the Museum, again gave $500. Peder A. Christensen, of 
San Francisco, made an additional gift of money. Accretions for 
the year in trust funds were: from the estate of Mrs. Abby K. 
Babcock, $284.27 for The Frederick Reynolds and Abby Kettelle 
Babcock Fund; from the estate of Mrs. Joan A. Chalmers, $666.67 
for The Joan A. Chalmers Fund; and from the estate of Martin A. 
Ryerson, $704.47 for The Martin A. and Carrie Ryerson Fund. The 
Museum received $32,000 from Stanley Field, its President; 
$10,000.51 from Marshall Field, First Vice-President, for the Mar- 
shall Field Fiftieth Anniversary Fund; and $3,391.57 from Board- 
man Conover, Trustee and Research Associate in the Division of 
Birds. Other gifts of money were received from Mrs. Ellen T. Smith, 
Associate, Division of Birds; Miss Lillian A. Ross, Associate Editor, 
Scientific Publications; Harry Hoogstraal, Field Associate in Zoology; 
Karl P. Schmidt, Chief Curator of Zoology; Clarence B. Randall, 
Trustee; and Colonel Clifford C. Gregg, Director. 

In recognition of eminent service to the Museum in repeated 
assistance to various expeditions from the Museum, Brother Leon 
(Joseph S. Sauget y Barbier), of the Museo de Historia Natural del 
Colegio de La Salle, Vedado, Havana, distinguished Cuban botanist, 
was elected by the Board of Trustees a Corresponding Member of 
the Museum, the membership designation for scientists or patrons 
of science residing in foreign countries who have rendered important 
service to the Aluseum fsee page 102 for names of Corresponding 
Members). Donors who give or devise to the IMuseum between 
$1,000 and $100,000 in money or materials are elected by the Board 
of Trustees to a special membership classification designated as 
"Contributors" and their names are enrolled in perpetuity (see 
page 102 for names of Contributors). Contributors elected in 1949 
are: Walther Buchen, of Chicago; Henry S. Dybas, Assistant Curator 
of Insects; John W. Moyer, Chief of the Division of Motion Pictures; 
and Mrs. L. B\Ton Nash, of Highland Park, Illinois. Mr. Buchen 


gave zoological specimens and $1,158.83 in cash; Assistant Curator 
Dybas, natural-history specimens and books; Mr. Moyer, natural- 
history specimens, books, and motion-picture film; and Mrs. Nash, 
Polynesian ethnological specimens and an exhibition case. A com- 
plete list of gifts of materials from individuals and institutions 
appears elsewhere in this Report. Some of the collections are 
described under the headings of the scientific departments. 


Half a million Chicago school children know Chicago Natural History 
Museum chiefly through the portable exhibits prepared and main- 
tained by the Department of the N. W. Harris Public School Exten- 
sion. These exhibits, which are circulated on a planned schedule of 
regular rotation among Chicago schools, are designed both for free 
observation and for directed study. Most of them deal with bio- 
logical subjects. During the ten school months of the year two 
exhibits are delivered every tenth school day to each school on the 
circulation list, and the two exhibits left on the previous routine 
visit are taken away and delivered to the next school in the rotation. 

Benjamin Cascard and Chris Priesmeyer load exhibition cases into one of the new 
trucks of the N. W. Harris Extension Department for delivery to schools of Chicago. 


This plan assures that there will be no repetition of exhibits in any 
school over a period of several years. In a school year seventeen 
exchanges are made; that is, each school receives thirty-four exhibits. 
Five hundred and four schools and social-service institutions were 
receiving Harris Extension service at the close of 1949. 

In past practice the four drivers who deliver Harris Extension 
exhibits on school days repaired damage to cases and assisted in 
the preparation of new exhibits on Saturday mornings. With the 
adoption of a five-day work week for the Museum staff in the summer 
of 1949 the delivery schedule was revised so that the services of 
the men would be available in the workshop every tenth school day 
and yet each school would receive the same number of exhibits as 
under the old schedule. After thirteen years of duty the two trucks 
used to deliver the exhibits were replaced in June by two half-ton 
panel trucks. During the summer the Museum maintenance staff 
equipped the interiors of the new trucks with the racks and rubber 
padding essential to efficient and safe transportation of exhibits. 

Eight new exhibits were prepared in 1949, and seven were revised. 
Repairs were made on 313 cases. Thirty exhibits were damaged in 
circulation, a more normal figure than the high number of forty-six 
reported for 1948. Special loans of exhibit material other than the 
standard portable cases amounted to thirty-four for the year. 


A special exhibit on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the 
birth of Charles Darwin was held in February in Stanley Field Hall 
to display the series of eighteen letters by Charles Darwin that was 
presented to the Museum in 1948 by the estate of the late Mrs. 
Charles V. Riley. The letters (nine in Darwin's hand and nine by 
an amanuensis) are addressed to Benjamin D. Walsh, of Rockford, 
Illinois, Darwin's one zoological correspondent in the Middle West. 
Various memorabilia collected by Museum expeditions that followed 
Darwin's travels in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and the Galapagos 
Islands were available for the exhibit. Darwin's fox from Chiloe 
Island, for example, was obtained at the type locality by the late 
Wilfred H. Osgood, for many years Chief Curator of Zoology, and 
"Darwin's lost bird" from Uruguay was rediscovered in 1926 after 
nearly one hundred years by Colin C. Sanborn, Curator of Mammals. 
The exhibit of Darwiniana was planned and installed by Mrs. 
Ellen T. Smith, Associate in the Division of Birds, with the aid of 
other members of the staff (see page 60).

One of the special exhibits in Stanley Field Hall displayed water-color paintings 
of orchids by H. Gilbert Foote in combination with living plants furnished by the 
courtesy of William C. Blaesmg and Merton C. Logsdon, of Chicago Park District. 

During the year the Department of Botany prepared or assisted 
with four special exhibits: water-color paintings of California flowers 
by Miss Ethelynde Smith, on exhibit in April; a case demonstrating 
present methods of making plant models, prepared in connection 
with the forty-fourth annual meeting of the American Association 
of Museums, on exhibit during May; dawn-redwood material, on 
exhibit during July; and a group of fifty life-size water-color paintings 
of orchids shown in combination with a display of a series of living 
plants furnished by the Chicago Park District, on exhibit in No- 
vember. Other special exhibits during the year were the Fourth 
Chicago International Exhibition of Nature Photography, held 
under the auspices of the Nature Camera Club of Chicago and the 
Museum; drawings and paintings done directly from Museum ex- 
hibits by students of the Junior School of the Art Institute of 
Chicago; and anatomical models of the common malaria mosquito. 
Additions to the permanent exhibits of the Museum are described 
in this Report under the headings of the scientific departments. 



James E. Trott, Artist-Preparator in the Division of Insects, Depart- 
ment of Zoology, began leave of absence in March and resigned 
from the staff of the Museum in September. Mrs. Mary W. Baker, 
Associate Librarian Emerita, who came to the Museum in 1930 as 
Assistant Librarian, retired at the end of March. Harold Hinshaw, 
Assistant in the Herbarium, Kent Jones, Preparator in Geology, and 
Miss Norma Lockwood, Staff Illustrator, resigned during the year. 

George Langford, Assistant in the Division of Fossil Plants, 
Department of Geology, was promoted to Assistant Curator, and 
Henry U. Taylor was appointed Preparator in Geology. George A. 
Davis was appointed Assistant in the Herbarium, Department of 
Botany. Robert F. Inger, Assistant in the Division of Amphibians 
and Reptiles, Department of Zoology, was transferred to the Division 
of Fishes as Assistant Curator, and Robert Kanazawa was made 
Assistant. The title of Harry Hoogstraal was changed from Assistant 
Curator of Insects to Field Associate in Zoology. Douglas E. 
Tibbitts, temporary assistant in the Division of Vertebrate Anatomy, 
was appointed Staff Illustrator on November 1. Mrs. Anne Strom- 
quist, formerly associated with New York Botanical Garden, joined 
the staff of the James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation 
in February. Mrs. Eunice M. Gemmill, Assistant Librarian, was 
promoted on January 1 to Associate Librarian. Miss Hilda Nord- 
land, of the Recorder's office, was given the title of Assistant Re- 
corder, and Harold M. Grutzmacher, of the Division of Printing, 
was made Assistant to the Chief of that Division. 

It is with regret that I record the death of three Museum 
pensioners and one Museum employee: E. S. Abbey, former Captain 
of the Guard, who retired in 1947 after more than forty years of 
service; C. H. Carpenter, former Chief Photographer, who retired 
in 1947 after almost fifty years of service; Joseph Freeman, retired, 
formerly assistant engineer; and Carl Gervens, plant mounter in 
the Department of Botany, employed by the Museum since 1924. 

The Museum thanks its volunteer workers for their faithful con- 
tribution of time and effort. Names of some of them are included 
in the List of Staff at the beginning of this Report, where they 
are designated by the titles "Research Associate" and "Associate." 
Other volunteers in 1949, not in that list, are: Department of Anthro- 
pology — Miss Rose Marie Allen, Mrs. Harvey Bumgardner, Leo 
Shigut; Department of Botany — Miss Margaret Feigley; Department 
of Zoology — Gus Kalous, Edward Palencsar.

Research and Expeditions 

Archaeological researches were conducted in Pine Lawn Valley in 
the Apache National Forest of western New Mexico under a permit 
issued to Chicago Natural History Museum by the Forest Service, 
United States Department of Agriculture. The excavations, com- 
menced in June and continued until late September, were under 
the direction of Dr. Paul S. Martin, Chief Curator. Assisting him 
were Dr. John B. Rinaldo, Assistant in Archaeology, Dr. Ernst 
Antevs, Research Associate in Glacial Geology, and two students, 
W. T. Egan and James Barter. 

The Pine Lawn Valley of western New Mexico was chosen for 
field work because it lies in the heart of the Southwest. This region 
has largely been unexplored archaeologically and for this reason our 
work there has proved fruitful beyond measure. The Mogollon cul- 
ture, a fairly recent discovery, has become better known through 
the researches and publications of this Museum. The report of our 
work of 1949, when published, will throw even more light on the 
development of this culture. 


The objectives of the 1949 expedition were: (1) to excavate 
several pueblos of the Reserve period, which is tentatively dated 
at about A.D. 900 1000 (stone-walled surface houses first occur in 
Pine Lawn Valley in the Reserve period) ; (2) to continue the search 
for more evidence of the cultural remains of Early Man; and (3) to 
hunt for deposits of cultural materials indicating human occupation 
that might help close the gap in our time-scale of 800 B.C. to A.D. 500 
(the estimated date of the SU site). 

Three pueblos containing a total of twenty rooms were completely 
excavated. These pueblos were named Wet Leggett Pueblo, Three 
Pines Pueblo, and South Leggett Pueblo. In addition, while search- 
ing for the cemeteries and ceremonial rooms of these pueblos, three 
early pit rooms were found. These, too, were completely excavated. 

Briefly summed up, these excavations added enormously to the 
knowledge of the prehistory of this area and of the time-period of 
A.D. 900-1000. Previous to this era the Mogollon Indians had lived 
in underground structures called pit houses and had produced pottery 
that was typically Mogollon — namely, red-on-white ware. In the 
Reserve period we find that the centuries-long isolation of the 
Mogollon people had been breached. Influences from without — 
probably from the northern part of New Mexico — had penetrated 
the Mogollon stronghold and had profoundly changed the existing 
culture patterns. Surface houses of contiguous rooms built with 
masonry walls were introduced. Thereafter the people lived in multi- 
roomed surface houses instead of isolated, underground pit houses. 

A surface house, in effect, constituted a small village, and that 
mode of life probably entailed changes in the social organization of 
the Mogollon Indians. Not the least important of these social 
changes would be the need for some governmental mechanisms, 
such as chiefs or councils or both. No longer could each family go 
its own way. Forms of social control with which to co-ordinate 
effort and reduce friction in a larger and more compact community 
would be needed. Habits of co-operation would develop. Farming 
would probably be done communally. This might produce a greater 
food supply, and this in turn would create more stability and a 
somewhat greater density of population. Since all the time of all 
the population would not be needed for food production, some 
energies could be devoted to the development of specialties — such 
as pottery-making, weaving, basket-making, architecture, art, re- 
ligion, politics. All the patterns of human relationships were 
probably changed by this invasion of ideas or of people from the 
north. Although these small towns were distinctly rural, yet they 


had started along the road toward urbanism, speciaHzations, different 
roles (ruler and ruled, priests, artisans, etc.), and co-ordination of 
human efforts. 

Thus, in these humble ruins one can observe the very first 
faltering steps that man took on the way toward civilization. 
The road to civilization is fraught with many uncertainties; the 
Mogollon Indians never attained this goal because enough time was 
not available. Shortly after their start on this road they were 
forced to abandon the Pine Lawn Valley and all adjacent areas. The 
reasons for this exodus are unknown at the present time. This is 
one of the ultimate problems that Chief Curator Martin and Dr. 
Rinaldo are seeking to solve. Where the Mogollon Indians went is 
likewise unknown, although Dr. Martin conjectures that they might 
have joined some other village or tribe and thus have been absorbed. 
This is a problem for future research. 

Dr. Antevs continued his climatological studies of the Pine 
Lawn Valley to check the work and conclusions of past summers. 
This was important because heavy precipitation during the winter

Pueblo, New Mexico, shows

of 1948 49 had changed the exposures in the arroyos and uncovered 
more strata. With the aid of Dr. Rinaldo, twenty more stone tools 
of the Cochise culture (about 1500 B.C. to about 800 B.c.j were 
recovered in these geological studies. 

In this connection, a most important discovery was made — the 
finding of the floor of a Cochise house or camp site. The area that 
showed irrefutable proof of occupation was small, perhaps seven 
feet in diameter. It is possible that this floor, on which two Cochise- 
type grinding stones were found, may have been roofed over by a 
tent of skins or possibly of brush. This is the first Cochise "house" 
found in the area. Now, it is known that the Pine Lawn Valley was 
occupied by the Cochise people from about 1500 B.C. to about 800 
B.C. and by their descendants, the Mogollon people, from about 
A.D. 500 to about a.d. 1300. However, one puzzling problem re- 
mains: was the Pine Lawn Valley occupied continuously from 800 B.C. 
to A.D. 500? On the basis of indirect evidence. Chief Curator 
Martin and Dr. Rinaldo feel strongly that the answer should be in 
the affirmative, but as yet no cultural remains of human occupation 
for this period have been discovered. Another puzzling item is 
the absence of kivas (ceremonial rooms). To date, none have been 
found for the villages of the Reserve period. 

In April the Museum Press issued Cochise and Mogollon Sites, 
Pine Lawn Valley, Western New Mexico by Chief Curator Martin, 
Dr. Rinaldo, and Dr. Antevs, a detailed and well-illustrated report 
of the results of the 1947 Southwest Archaeological Expedition. At 
the end of the volume is a summary written especially for interested 
laymen. This publication, which has brought forth new and much- 
needed data and has settled several controversies, has been cited as 
a model for students to follow in drawing up comprehensive data. 

The Mexican (Sonora) Archaeological Expedition, sponsored 
jointly by Chicago Natural History Museum, the University of 
Chicago, and the University of Arizona, started field work in Febru- 
ary and finished in May. Work was done under a permit granted 
by the Direccion de Monumentos Prehispanicos of the Instituto 
Nacional de Antropologia e Historia. The expedition was under 
the direction of Donald J. Lehmer, University of Chicago Museum 
Fellow in Anthropology, and Bryant Bannister, student at Yale 
University. Dr. Antevs joined the expedition in the last weeks to 
study the geological exposures. The purposes of the expedition were : 
(1) to determine if possible the southern limits of the Cochise cul- 
ture — the same culture that Chief Curator Martin, Dr. Antevs, and 
Dr. Rinaldo had found in west-central New Mexico (the Cochise 


culture was first discovered in southern Arizona and has been 
tentative!}^ dated at 8000 B.C. to 500 B.C.) and (2) to find traces of 
prehistoric contacts between the Indians inhabiting the southwestern 
United States and those in Middle America. 

Although the expedition was greatly hampered by the worst 
floods in fifty years, it managed to travel some five thousand miles 
over a mountainous terrain. Unfortunately, contemporary erosion 
had not progressed far enough to determine if early sites had been 
buried by later depositions. However, some Cochise stone tools 
were found, and these may date at about 1000 B.C. Pottery ap- 
peared in the Southwest about the time of Christ, and it is generally 
believed that this art came from Mexico. But the pottery dis- 
covered by Mr. Lehmer is fairly late (that is, about a.d. 1000). 
Therefore it seems safe to say that if the art of pottery-making 
difi"used northward from Mexico, the diffusion did not take place 
through the Sonoran area. The collection of stone tools and pot- 
sherds made by Mr. Lehmer will be divided between the National 
Museum of Mexico and Chicago Natural History Museum. 

During the year Dr. Wilfrid D. Hambly, Curator of African 
Ethnology, completed a bibliography of African anthropology. This 
work, which covers the period 1937-49, brings up to date the material 
presented in his Source Book for African Anthropology (Museum 
Press, 2 vols., 1937), now long out of print. In preparing the bib- 
liography, the word "anthropology" has been broadly interpreted 
to include archaeology, physical anthroplogy, and the general situa- 
tion resulting from contact of Europeans and Africans. The section 
dealing with periodicals containing articles on African anthropology 
comprises 260 titles. Work has continued with the manuscript 
"Craniometry of Malekula," which is of exceptional interest because 
of the Museum's unique collection of deformed skulls from that 
island. To this work has been added a section on the craniometry 
of New Caledonia. 

Dr. Alexander Spoehr, Curator of Oceanic Ethnology, conducted 
work on comparative problems in Micronesian ethnology based on 
the results of postwar research in the area and prepared for publica- 
tion two papers on social organization. In November the Museum 
Press issued his report, Majuro, A Village in the Marshall Islands, 
a comprehensive study of the contemporary, formal social organiza- 
tion of an acculturated Micronesian community. Although much 
of the report is meant for anthropologists, there are sections that 
will interest many people who are concerned with our responsibilities 
in the administration of the Micronesian peoples.

shell pendants displayed in the Hall of Indian America before Columbus (Hall 4). 

In October Curator Spoehr left for a year's field work in the 
Marianas Islands, Micronesia, with headquarters on Saipan. The 
expedition has two objectives: The first is an examination of the 
culture change that is taking place among the native inhabitants of 
the northern Marianas Islands. These islands were greatly disturbed 
by the war, and one aspect of the problem is to investigate the manner 
in which community life is re-forming among the native peoples of 
the area and the processes of culture change that are of particular 
importance. The second objective is archaeological. It is planned 
to conduct surveys and excavations on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota — 


the major islands in the Northern Marianas in order to throw 
Hght on the problem of when and how these islands were first peopled 
as well as to delineate the culture flows that have emanated from 
the Malaysian area into Micronesia. The archaeological project in 
the Marianas is a first step in a little-known field, for excavations 
conducted according to the refined standards of modern archaeology 
have not heretofore been made in Micronesia, although valuable 
information has been collected by lay observers. The Micronesian 
expedition has been arranged through the Pacific Science Board of 
the National Research Council, which is currently sponsoring a series 
of scientific investigations in Micronesia. The expedition has also 
been greatly assisted by the active co-operation and support of the 
Navy Department. 

Curator Spoehr and George I. Quimby, Curator of Exhibits, 
collaborated in preparing a paper on historic Creek Indian pottery. 
This pottery is of particular interest in that it is a culture trait that 
bridges the gap between the prehistoric and historic periods in the 
southeastern United States. Also in collaboration with Curator 
Quimby, Curator Spoehr worked on a research project dealing with 
acculturation as manifest in specimens in the Museum collection 
from the Oceanic and North American areas. The aim of the project 
is to delineate regularities in culture change during the period when 
tribal cultures were first modified through contact with Western 
civilization. An illustrated paper on this project has been prepared 
for publication in the Museum series. 

Curator Quimby carried out research in North American eth- 
nology in conjunction with the exhibition program and undertook 
research on stone and bone artifacts from ancient sites in the Aleutian 
Islands. In April he spent two weeks at Louisiana State University 
in Baton Rouge in order to select type specimens illustrative of 
the archaeological sequence in the lower Mississippi Valley. He also 
obtained larger collections from late period sites for analyses and 
eventual inclusion in reports dealing with the archaeology of the 
Plaquemine and Natchezan culture types. 

Chief Curator Martin and Donald Collier, Curator of South 
American Ethnology and Archaeology, spent January and February 
in Mexico making a selection of specimens and arrangements for an 
extensive exchange of collections with the National Museum of 
Anthropology in Mexico City. The exchange is still in negotiation. 
This trip was made possible by a grant from the Viking Fund, Inc. 
While in Mexico, Chief Curator Martin and Curator Collier were 
able to study thoroughly the archaeological collections in the National 


Museum of Anthropology, to discuss current data and problems with 
Mexican archaeologists, and to visit ten important archaeological 
sites. About 120 kodachrome pictures of archaeological interest 
were taken. Dr. Martin returned to Chicago by way of New York 
City and Washington, D.C. Visits to the anthropologists of these 
cities were of great benefit because mutual problems concerning 
archaeological work and the technique of exhibitions were discussed 
and several problems solved. 

On his way from Mexico Curator Collier spent two days in Wash- 
ington, D.C, with Dr. Gordon Willey, of the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion, in order to work on a paper they have written jointly with Dr. 
John Rowe, of the University of California, on their investigations 
of Huari, a little-known but extremely important archaeological site 
of the Tiahuanaco period in the south-central highland of Peru. 
Curator Collier next spent ten days in New York conferring with 
Junius Bird and Dr. James Ford, of the American Museum of 
Natural History, and Dr. Duncan Strong, of Columbia University, 
concerning problems of classification of the pottery excavated in 
the Viru Valley during the Museum's 1946 Archaeological Expedition 
to Peru. Crucial samples had been shipped to New York, and these 
were compared with pottery excavated by these men in the same 
region. During the remainder of the year time was devoted to re- 
search on this collection and to the preparation of a report, not yet 
completed, on the 1946 expedition. 

During the first months of the year Dr. Rinaldo collaborated with 
Chief Curator Martin in preparing a detailed report on the excava- 
tion during the summer of 1948 of Turkey Foot Ridge village located 
in the Pine Lawn Valley of west-central New Mexico. He also 
prepared graphs showing the development of Mogollon pottery and 
pottery designs for this report. He continued research on and 
cataloguing of the extensive Herzfeld collection of Persian antiquities. 
In addition he prepared for the Museum Press a paper on culture 
change in the Ackmen-Lowry area, a detailed analysis of trends and 
rates of change in the culture of the prehistoric Pueblo Indians of 
southwestern Colorado. During the summer he assisted Chief 
Curator Martin in the excavation of three Indian-village ruins in 
the Pine Lawn Valley of west-central New Mexico and, after his 
return from the field in the fall, made a detailed analysis of the 
pottery and artifacts recovered from these sites preliminary to the 
preparation of a report on the summer's field work. He also wrote 
a short paper entitled "Notes on the Turkey Foot Ridge Site Dates," 
to be published in the Tree-Ring Bulletin. 


Accessions— Anthropology 

The Museum is happy to record a valuable gift of 75 rare and 
beautiful Polynesian specimens from Hawaii and Samoa presented by 
Mrs. L. Byron Nash of Highland Park, Illinois. These specimens 
were collected by Mrs. Nash's maternal ancestors. The collection, 
much of which is on exhibition in Hall F (Peoples of Polynesia and 
Micronesia), consists of fly whisks, capes, and ornamental bands of 
gay-colored feathers, many of which are from birds now extinct. In 
addition, there are old necklaces of ivory and amber and numerous 
tapa (bark) cloth blankets. It would be impossible to duplicate this 
collection today, and the Museum is fortunate to be the recipient 
of a gift of this value and character. 

Exhibits— Anthropology 

One hall of exhibits was completed and a new series of exhibits 
on Indians of eastern North America was begun under the direction 
of Curator of Exhibits Quimby, Chief Curator Martin, Curator 
Spoehr, Curator Collier, and Dr. Rinaldo, with the assistance of 
Artist Gustaf Dalstrom, Dioramist Alfred Lee Rowell, Preparator 
Walter C. Reese, Ceramic Restorer John Pletinckx, and Preparator 
Paul J. Warner. The Hall of New World Archaeology (Indian 
America before Columbus) was moved from the ground floor (Hall B) 
to James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Hall (Hall 4) on the 
main floor of the Museum. This hall was opened officially on 
Columbus Day, October 12, with a tea and a special preview for 
Members and friends of the Museum. On May 19 and 20 there 
was a special showing of this hall for the meeting of the American 
Association of Museums. 

The new exhibits for Mary D. Sturgis Hall (Hall 5) are devoted 
to the subject of the historic Indians (ethnology) of eastern North 
America. This hall is divided into the following sections: Indians 
of the Prairies, Indians of the Chicago Region, Indians of the 
Northern Woodlands, Indians of the Middle Woodlands, and Indians 
of the Southern Woodlands (see pages 30 and 39 for pictures of two 
of the five new exhibits that have been completed for the section on 
Indians of the Northern Woodlands). 

Eleven exhibits and one diorama were completed for the section 
on Indians of the Chicago Region (the Indians of the Chicago region 
were the Miami, Illinois, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, Sauk and Fox, 
Ottawa, Menomini, Winnebago, and southern Chippewa). These 


exhibits illustrate men's clothing, women's clothing, decorative art, 
household goods, warfare, hunting, games, farming and gathering, 
the Medicine Society, medicine men, and physical appearance as 
shown by portraits painted by George Catlin about 1832. The 
diorama shows a summer village of the Sauk and Fox Indians of 
Illinois of about 1750. Five exhibits for the section on Indians of 
the Northern Woodlands were completed (representative tribes of 
the Northern Woodlands are the Cree, northern Chippewa, Algonkin, 
Montagnais-Naskapi, and Micmac). These exhibits illustrate travel 
and transportation, hunting, decorative art, women's clothing, and 
men's clothing. One exhibit completed for the Middle Woodlands 
section deals with decorative art and clothing of the Iroquois. Many 
additional exhibits are planned for all of the sections of the new hall 
of historic Indians of eastern North America. 

During the year a diorama showing excavation of an Indian 
mound was rebuilt and modernized. This diorama illustrates the 
excavation of a Hopewell type of mound in the middle-western 
United States (the Hopewell culture existed sometime between 
500 B.C. and A.D. 1300). The work on this diorama was carried out 
by Dioramist Rowell, and the exhibit was installed in Hall 4. Two 
exhibits illustrating Polynesian featherwork and mats were installed 
in Hall F (Peoples of Polynesia and Micronesia). These exhibits 
were arranged by Curator Spoehr and Artist Dalstrom.

Research and Expeditions 

During 1949 Paul C. Standley, Curator of the Herbarium, continued 
his expedition to middle Central America, where he visited 
botanically unexplored regions in Honduras and Nicaragua and 
discovered many new and interesting records. Dr. Theodor Just, 
Chief Curator, studied living and fossil Cycadaceae in connection 
with the revision for publication of the manuscript on this group of 
gymnosperms by the late Professor Charles J. Chamberlain, who was 
a Research Associate in the Department of Botany, and Professor 

A. W. Haupt, of the University of California at Los Angeles. Dr. 

B. E. Dahlgren, Curator Emeritus, continued his studies of American 
palms and collected for several months in Cuba. 

Dr. Julian A. Steyermark, Associate Curator of the Herbarium, 
studied his large collections from Ecuador and Venezuela as well as 
the Venezuelan collections made by Llewelyn Williams, Associate 
in Forest Products. In connection with the "Flora of Guatemala," 


now in process of publication by the Museum Press, Dr. Steyermark 
visited the United States National Herbarium and the New York 
Botanical Garden to check critical material and records of distribu- 
tion. After his return he spent considerable time on the identification 
of miscellaneous collections sent to the Museum, especially from 
Central and South America, Mexico, and the United States. In 
connection with his work as Research Associate of the Missouri 
Botanical Garden, he was in the field at several times during the 
season to get new records of Missouri plants and to make surveys. 

J. Francis Macbride, Curator of Peruvian Botany, carried on 
studies of the flora of Peru at various herbaria in California. Dr. 
Jos4 Cuatrecasas, Curator of Colombian Botany, was occupied with 
organization, identification, and monographic studies of his extensive 
collections of Colombian plants. Dr. Earl E. Sherff, Research 
Associate in Systematic Botany, visited Guatemala in search of tree 
dahlias and carried on cultural investigations of critical species of 
this genus. He also pursued his monographic studies. 

Dr. Francis Drouet, Curator of Cryptogamic Botany, returned 
in February from an expedition along the Gulf of Mexico from 
Louisiana to Florida. Some 15,000 specimens, chiefly algae, were 
collected, largely in co-operation with Robert P. Ehrhardt, of Seattle, 
Percy Viosca, Jr., of New Orleans, Dr. Lewis H. Flint, of Louisiana 
State University, Dr. R. L. Caylor, of Mississippi Delta State 
Teachers College, Dr. A. J. Bajkov, of the Biloxi Oyster Laboratory, 
Harold B. Louderback, of Roosevelt College, Dr. Melvin A. Brannon, 
of the University of Florida, and Dr. Chester S. Nielsen, Dr. Grace C. 
Madsen, and Miss Dorothy Crowson, of Florida State University. 
Most of these collections, along with hundreds of algae received from 
other people for identification, were named and filed in the Her- 
barium during the year. With William A. Daily, of Butler Uni- 
versity, Curator Drouet continued work on a revision of the non- 
filamentous Myxophyceae. Mr. and Mrs. Daily photographed 
several hundred type specimens concerned in this project. Dr. 
Hanford Tiffany and Donald Richards, Research Associates, pursued 
their studies of algae and bryophytes respectively. Miss Margaret 
Feigley, volunteer worker, determined the species of large numbers 
of mosses and hepatics. Miss Crowson, who spent three months at 
the Museum, studied algae and assisted with the last of the prepara- 
tion of the fungus collections. 

During January and February Dr. Hugh C. Cutler, Curator of 
Economic Botany, accompanied Dr. Dahlgren on an expedition to 
Cuba to study and collect palms. Curator Cutler studied some of 


this material after his return and, during the summer, made viabihty 
studies on pollen samples collected by Curator Emeritus Dahlgren 
on his second trip in 1949 to Cuba. During April and May Curator 
Cutler studied populations of desert plants, especially of Ephedra, 
in northern Arizona. Several large collections of cultivated plants 
made by archaeologists and ethnologists in various parts of the 
New World were identified, and work on an especially large and 
complete collection from Peru is being continued. During the last 
part of the year considerable time was spent in assembling materials 
for displays and for reinstallations of the economic plant exhibits. 
At the end of the year he went to the Bailey Hortorium, Ithaca, 
New York, where he studied collections of useful plants. 

Approximately forty-four thousand specimens and type photo- 
graphs were mounted and distributed in the phanerogamic and 
cryptogamic herbaria. Under the direction of Mrs. Efhe M. Schug- 
man more than twenty thousand specimens and photographs of 
cryptogams were mounted on sheets. These were filed in the 
herbarium cases by Curator Drouet. From its large collections of 
negatives of type and historical specimens of American plants in 
European herbaria the Department of Botany sold and sent in 
exchange during the year more than nine thousand prints to other 
institutions and to botanists for study purposes. 

Exhibits— Botany 

Considerable progi'ess was made toward the reinstallation of the 
botanical exhibits to take full advantage of the new lighting recently 
introduced in Martin A. and Carrie Ryerson Hall (Hall 29, Plant 
Life), a project to which the entire staff of the Plant Reproduction 
Laboratories devoted most of its time. During the year forty-three 
exhibition cases and their respective contents were reconditioned 
and rearranged. Two new plant models were added to the synoptic 
exhibit of plant families in Hall 29 — a flowering plant of meadow 
beauty (Rhexia), the only local member of the tropical Melastoma 
family, and a reproduction of a wood or shield fern (Dryopteris), 
a widely distributed genus of handsome ferns with compound foliage. 
A leafy branch of the American linden (Tilia) was prepared and 
installed in Charles F. Millspaugh Hall (Hall 26, North American 
Trees). Ten small models to illustrate the principal groups of the 
plant kingdom, including bacteria, fungi, algae, mosses, and vascular 
plants, which were requested over a year ago by the Department 
of Geology, have been completed and delivered. 


Accessions— Botany 

A number of important additions to the phanerogamic herbarium 
were made during the year. The most noteworthy of these are the 
following: 1,178 plants sent as exchange by the United States 
National Museum, representing specimens mostly from South 
America and the West Indies; 1,018 Illinois plants collected by 
Virginius H. Chase, sent as exchange from the Peoria Academy of 
Science; 708 specimens from Colombia and Brazil collected by Dr. 
Richard Evans Schultes; 560 specimens from Chiapas, Mexico, 
collected by Eizi Matuda; 522 Kansas plants collected by W. H. 
Horr, sent as exchange from the Department of Botany, University 
of Kansas; 462 plants from Texas and neighboring states, collected 
by Dr. Rogers McVaugh and sent as exchange from the University 
of Michigan Herbarium; and 380 Panama plants collected by Paul H. 
Allen, sent as exchange by the Missouri Botanical Garden. Aside 
from material accruing from Museum expeditions, more than 9,000 
cryptogams were accessioned. About 5,000 cryptogams were pur- 
chased with funds provided by Elmer J. Richards, of Chicago, and 
Research Associate Richards. Among these were 2,011 algae of the 
herbarium of the Reverend Francis Wolle, which had been on loan 
to the Museum from Philip W. Wolle since 1939. More than 2,000 
cryptogams were received in exchange; the remainder were gifts.

Research and Expeditions 

Dr. Robert H. Denison, Curator of Fossil Fishes, studied one of the 
primitive Arthrodires, a group of peculiar Devonian armored fishes, 
and, in an attempt to determine the exact geological age of the fossils, 
visited the area in eastern New York State where the specimens 
originally were collected many years ago. His studies essentially 
have been completed, and he expects to submit the manuscript for 
publication early in 1950. Dr. Everett C. Olson, Research Associate 
in Fossil Vertebrates, continued his work on the evolution of the 
amphibians and reptiles of the Early Permian of Texas. He com- 
pleted seven papers on various components of the fauna and sub- 
mitted these for publication. 

Eugene S. Richardson, Jr., Curator of Fossil Invertebrates, was 
occupied chiefly with the work of identifying, checking, and selecting 
specimens for the new exhibits of invertebrate fossils for Frederick 


J. V. Skiff Hall (Hall 37, Fossil Invertebrates and Fossil Plants) 
and also wrote a large number of labels relating to these exhibits. 
Curator Richardson thus had very little time at his disposal for 
concentrated studies, but nevertheless he prepared for the Museum 
Press a description of a new species of Devonian sponge that was 
collected during the summer by Dr. Sharat K. Roy, Chief Curator, 
at a quarry near Buffalo, New York. In addition. Curator Richard- 
son spent his spare time surveying the fauna of the Pennsylvanian 
deposits near Coal City, Illinois. For many years the flora of these 
deposits has interested George Langford, Assistant Curator of Fossil 
Plants, and he was actively engaged in preparing a comprehensive 
report on this flora before joining the staff. During the year he 
revised and added considerable new material to his manuscript. 

Dr. Rainer Zangerl, Curator of Fossil Reptiles, completed Part III 
of "The Vertebrate Fauna of the Selma Formation of Alabama," 
dealing with a revision of a marine turtle family Protostegidae. He 
also made considerable progress in his studies on the turtles of the 
family Toxochelyidae. In connection with this he visited various 
museums in Kansas, Texas, and the eastern states to examine their 
collections for certain hitherto undescribed specimens of these groups. 

Bryan Patterson, Curator of Fossil Mammals, continued his 
work on the mammalian fauna from the Vieja formation in trans- 
Pecos Texas and problems associated with it. The fauna is an ex- 
ceedingly interesting one that stands in time very near the Eocene- 
Oligocene boundary. Comparison of the Viejan mammals with 
related forms from earlier formations suggests that current concepts 
of the ages of certain faunas hitherto regarded as Late Eocene may 
have to be revised. Other work carried on by Curator Patterson 
during the year included studies on the auditory region of edentates, 
in collaboration with Dr. Walter Segall, of Northwestern University, 
and on the early Cretaceous triconodonts discovered in Texas. 

Chief Curator Roy, in collaboration with Robert K. Wyant, 
Curator of Economic Geology, completed studies on three meteorites 
— Mapleton, Navajo, and Benld. The results of the studies of the 
first two of these meteorites were issued by the Museum Press 
during the year. The manuscript on Benld has been completed and, 
save for making up the plates, is ready for the press. Metallographic 
studies and chemical analysis of another meteorite, La Porte, have 
been completed, but the results of the work have not yet been 
summed up. Other work by Curator Wyant, done independently, 
consisted of chemical and petrographic examination of several 
silicified country rocks from Missouri and southwestern Illinois. 


William D- Turnbull, Preparator in Geology, is shown at work on the remounting 
of Eryops, an Early Permian amphibian from the University of Chicago Collection. 

Chief Curator Roy began his studies on the so-called veins in meteor- 
ites with the object of determining whether they are terrestrial or 
extraterrestrial. This has been a debatable subject for many years. 

Almost by accident an exceedingly interesting discovery was 
made during the year. On their way to attend the annual meeting 
of the Geological Society of America, held in El Paso in November, 
Curators Zangerl and Denison made a brief stop in northern Texas 
to examine an area that had been recommended by Glen L. Evans, 
of the Texas Memorial Museum, as a promising one for Early 
Cretaceous turtles. Noticing minute bone fragments on the surface 
of the ground, they made a close examination and, almost at once, 
Curator Denison picked up a partial lower jaw of a mammal, the 
most exciting paleontological find of recent years. Further search 
yielded hundreds of fragmentary remains of other vertebrates, 
among which were those of dinosaurs, crocodiles, flying reptiles, 
and frogs — the first thus far found in deposits of Cretaceous age. 

On a return visit following the meetings, Curator Denison found 
a second mammal jaw, better preserved than the first. The interest 
of the discovery lies in the fact that it was made in Early Cretaceous 


deposits and so begins to close a gap in our knowledge of mammalian 
history that, except for a few isolated teeth found at a locality in 
southern England, extends from the end of the Jurassic until near 
the end of the Cretaceous, a span of some sixty million years. The 
two specimens thus far found belong to an extinct group, the Tri- 
conodonta, that was not ancestral to any living forms, but their 
finding holds forth the prospect that such ancestors may be found 
there in the future. Further work in the region, in co-operation 
with the Texas Memorial Museum, is planned for 1950. 

Curator Denison spent the months of May, June, and July, in 
Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, inspecting a number of 
localities from which Ordovician and Devonian fishes had been 
previously reported. Considerable collections were made, of which 
the Early Devonian forms from Utah and Wyoming are now being 
prepared and studied. 

In September Curator Richardson visited three localities in 
western states to secure specimens required for certain exhibits in 
Hall 37. These included fossil mollusks from Oligocene beds near 
Rocky Point, Oregon, impressions of fossil leaves from Miocene 
lake beds in Nez Perce and Idaho counties, Idaho, and from Tertiary 
beds near Decker, Montana. 

In November Curator Richardson and Assistant Curator Lang- 
ford visited well-known localities in Tennessee, where they collected 
Late Cretaceous mollusks from the Ripley formation on Coon Creek, 
McNairy County, and from the Selma formation near Michie, in 
McNairy County. These mollusks will be the basis for a group- 
restoration of life in a Cretaceous sea to be made during the year by 
George Marchand, dioramist, at his studio in Ebenezer, New York. 
They also collected Late Cretaceous (Ripley formation) leaf im- 
pressions from Carroll County, among which are some interesting 
undescribed forms, and from the Early Eocene (Wilcox group) in 
Henry County. Specimens from these two trips not placed on 
exhibition will constitute a needed addition to the paleobotanical 
study collection. Curator Richardson accompanied Assistant 
Curator Langford on one of his many short collecting trips to the 
Pennsylvanian deposits near Coal City, Illinois. 

Chief Curator Roy spent six weeks in August and September in 
various localities in western New York collecting Ordovician and 
Devonian invertebrates. During the first two weeks of the trip he 
was accompanied by Orville L. Gilpin, Chief Preparator. Although 
Mr. Gilpin is primarily trained in collecting and preparing vertebrate 
fossils, he mastered the technique of collecting invertebrate fossils 


almost the first day he was in the field. Together they made a 
comprehensive collection and succeeded in securing the particular 
specimens needed for the new exhibits and dioramas now being in- 
stalled in Hall 37. 

Early in the year Curator Zangerl and CM. Barber, of Flint, 
Michigan, were given a grant from the Geological Society of America 
that enabled Mr. Barber to make one more intensive collecting trip 
in the Mooreville Chalk of the Selma formation of Alabama, an area 
that had been visited by several Museum expeditions and has 
furnished a wealth of interesting Late Cretaceous reptiles and fishes. 
Mr. Barber was accompanied by J. A. Robbins, of Flint, Michigan, 
who assisted him in the field and who materially helped in making 
the project a success. Curator Zangerl will study the specimens 
collected and write up the results for publication. 

The skeleton of the American mastodon that has been on exhibi- 
tion since the Museum first opened its doors is a rather unsatisfactory 
representative of this well-known fossil mammal because it is com- 
posed of bones from several individuals. Mastodon remains come 
to light frequently in the Middle West and a number of such occur- 
rences are reported to the Museum every year. Any that appear to 
be particularly promising are investigated in the hope that a specimen 
complete enough for exhibition or study purposes will be recovered. 
One such find, a few miles southwest of Valparaiso, Indiana, was 
reported during the year by Myron Benedict. Curator Patterson 
and Chief Preparator Gilpin spent the greater part of October in 
excavation of the site. The specimen proved to be badly scattered, 
so that a great deal of digging was required, and only one-third of 
the skeleton was recovered, the missing parts evidently having been 
washed away shortly after the death of the animal. On account of 
the general local interest that the excavation aroused, arrangements 
were made to present the specimen to the Porter County Historical 
Society. The bones occurred on the boundary between farms 
owned by Mr. Benedict and C. J. Spindler, both of whom kindly 
permitted the necessary digging to be done. 

Exhibits— Geology 

Installation of new exhibits in Frederick J. V. Skiff Hall (Hall 37, 
Fossil Invertebrates and Fossil Plants) began in September, 1948. 
During 1949, sixteen additional exhibits have been completed. Of 
these, three are restoration groups executed in various mediums and 
thirteen are of fossil invertebrates and plants arranged in taxonomic 


and stratigraphic sequence. With the exception of the restoration 
groups or dioramas that are the work of George Marchand, a noted 
sculptor-artist of Ebenezer, New York, all other exhibition work in 
this hall has been done under the supervision of Curator Richardson 
and the technical direction of Harry E. Changnon, Curator of 
Exhibits, with the assistance of Preparators Henry Horback, Henry 
U. Taylor, and Kent Jones. Curator Changnon, who is to be com- 
mended for his able planning of the exhibition material, is largely 
responsible for the esthetic qualities of the exhibits. The Prepar- 
ators also deserve equal commendation for the infinite care with 
which they have installed the specimens and labels. Other members 
of the Museum staff who have contributed to the success of the ex- 
hibits are the three Artists, Gustaf Dalstrom, John Conrad Hansen, 
and Joseph B. Krstolich, and Emil Sella, Curator of Exhibits in the 
Department of Botany. 

In the Hall of Economic Geology (Hall 36) five new exhibits 
were installed during the year. Four of these exhibits concern the 
ores and uses of lead, zinc, and copper, while the fifth exhibit, for 
which photographs were donated to the Museum by the Standard 
Oil Company, is a photographic presentation of the story of oil. 
The exhibits show the subjects with remarkable clarity and sim- 
plicity. In Vertebrate Paleontology a beginning was made in the 
task of remounting the skeletons of Permian amphibians and reptiles 
that were donated by the University of Chicago in 1947 and put 
on temporary exhibition in 1948. In order to place these skeletons 
in cases of standard Museum design it was necessary to remove them 
from their bases. Since many of them had been mounted more than 
a generation ago, it was decided to take this opportunity to remount 
each specimen in accordance with modern knowledge of these very 
early land vertebrates. Remounting of seven skeletons has been 
completed and work on another skeleton is well advanced. The 
remountings are being done by Chief Preparator Gilpin and Prepar- 
ators Stanley Kuczek and William D. Turnbull. 

Accessions— Geology 

A large portion of the year's important additions to the collections 
were made by Museum expeditions. The collection of primitive 
fossil fish was more than doubled as a result of the expedition of 
Curator Denison to the western states. From Colorado came 
numerous remains of Ordovician ostracoderms, the earliest known 
vertebrates. Early Devonian fishes were obtained from Beartooth 


Butte, Wyoming, and the Bear River Range, Utah. A good collec- 
tion of Late Devonian marine fishes was made in central Arizona, 
while the fresh-water fish fauna of this age was represented by smaller 
collections from a number of localities in the mountains of Colorado 
and Wyoming. By far the most noteworthy addition of the year, 
reference to which has been made earlier in the Report, was the two 
Early Cretaceous mammal jaws belonging to an extinct group, the 
Triconodonta. Other additions to the vertebrate collections con- 
sisted of Cretaceous reptiles and fishes from Alabama, collected by 
CM. Barber under a grant from the Geological Society of America, 
and Permian reptiles and amphibians from Texas, collected by 
Research Associate Olson, whose field work was sponsored by the 
University of Chicago. 

Among the gifts, mention should be made of the invertebrate 
fossils and fossil plants presented by Dr. and Mrs. R. H. Whitfield, 
Associates in Fossil Plants, and their son, Jon S. Whitfield, of 
Evanston, Illinois. The Museum was again fortunate to receive 
three meteorites as a gift from Stuart H. Perry, of Adrian, Michigan, 
two of which are new to the Museum's collection of meteorites. 

This scene, a lifc'size reconstruction of animals extinct for almost 400 million 
years, is one of three completed by George Marchand for installation in Hall 37.

Research and Expeditions 

Research within the Museum led to progress on various long-term 
projects and to the completion of some manuscripts and the publica- 
tion of others. In the Division of Mammals Curator Colin C. 
Sanborn, a world authority on the classification of bats, continued 
his studies on the taxonomy of these creatures, which constitute one 
of the most sharply defined of the mammalian orders. In connection 
with his expedition to Siam he was able to study collections of bats 
in the Raffles Museum in Singapore, the Indian Museum in Calcutta, 
and the British Museum (Natural History) in London. Luis de la 
Torre, temporary assistant, worked on Guatemalan collections of 
mammals through January, when he returned to his studies at the 
University of Michigan. 

South American and Central American birds occupied Associate 
Curator Emmet R. Blake and Research Associate Melvin A. Traylor, 
Jr., in the Division of Birds. Curator Austin L. Rand continued 


his studies on the taxonomy, distribution, and ecology of African 
and other Old World birds. The conclusion of Catalogue of Birds of 
the Americas with the publication of the section on birds of prey, 
by Research Associate Boardman Conover and the late Charles E. 
HellmajT, forms a landmark in the history of the Division of Birds, 
for this work, begun in 1909 by the former Curator of Zoology, 
Charles B. Cory, had grown to fifteen volumes. Mr. Conover con- 
tinued his studies on game birds, especially the South American 
tinamous. Mrs. Ellen T. Smith, Associate, carried on considerable 
curatorial work in addition to her work with exhibits. 

Clifford H. Pope, Curator of Reptiles, continued his detailed 
studies of the altitudinal and ecological distribution of the remarkable 
salamander fauna of the Appalachian Region. Curator Pope's 
studies bear on the currently much-discussed topic of "speciation," 
i.e., the origin of species. Robert F. Inger, Assistant Curator of 
Fishes, on loan from the Division of Fishes, made much progress 
on his report on the amphibians of the Philippines, based on the 
specimens collected by the Museum's Philippines Zoological Ex- 
pedition of 1946-47. 

In the Division of Fishes Curator Loren P. Woods continued the 
studies on fishes of the northern Marshall Islands in co-operation 
with Dr. Leonard P. Schultz of the United States National Museum. 
He engaged also on a review of the marine fish family Pomacentridae, 
the damselfishes. It was agreed late in the year that Curator Woods 
should bring to a close the work on the marine and fresh-water fishes 
of Panama. This work, of which five volumes have been published 
by the Museum Press, represents a definitive account of the Panama 
fish fauna undertaken by the Smithsonian Institution on the occasion 
of the construction of the Panama Canal. The former Assistant 
Curator of Zoology at the Museum, the late Seth E. Meek, was 
associated with Samuel F. Hildebrand (representing the Smithsonian) 
in both field work and publication. The manuscript for the supple- 
mentary volume on the marine fishes was well advanced by Mr. 
Hildebrand at the time of his death, and Curator Woods had had 
the advantage of association with him during his 1947-48 studies 
at the National Museum. The collections made by the Museum's 
Bermuda Deep-Sea Expedition in 1948 were supplemented by collec- 
tions of shore fishes, most notably by the deposit for study of the 
Mowbray collection, accumulated in Bermuda during the past 
thirty-nine years by Louis L. Mowbray, Sr. Studies on the deep- 
sea material by Mrs. Marion Grey, Associate, and on the shore 
fishes by Robert Kanazawa, Assistant, promise important results. 


Dr. Austin L. Rand, Curator of Birds, and Miss Pearl Sonoda, secretary. Division 
of Mammals, unpack incoming collections of birds and mammals from the Philippines. 

In the Division of Vertebrate Anatomy the major research 
program continued to center around the giant panda and related 
carnivores. Curator D. Dwight Davis is attempting to determine, 
as the final and most important phase of this study, the nature of 
the adaptive changes seen in the panda, to define some of these in 
terms of mechanics, and to elucidate their bearing on broad evolu- 
tionary questions. Excellent progress was made on completing and 
labeling the drawings that will illustrate this report. Curator Davis 
also made a detailed study of the head of the dogfish shark, the 
example of a generalized vertebrate used in all courses in com- 
parative anatomy, in order to bring together the results of numerous 
special studies on the shark's head reported in the literature of the 
subject and to combine them with original data. The burrowing 
locomotion of specialized amphibians and reptiles received continuing 
attention during the year, and observations and photographic records 


were made of "sand-swimming" lizards. Dr. R. M. Strong, Research 
Associate in Anatomy, continued work on his detailed anatomy of 
the salamander Necturus. 

In the Division of Insects, research by the staff was of necessity 
subordinated to the work of distributing new collections for study 
and of rearrangement of the collections in new cases. Continuing 
studies on beetles of the families Histeridae and Ptilidae were carried 
on by Assistant Curators Rupert L. Wenzel and Henry S. Dybas, 
on the Mordellidae by Eugene Ray, temporary assistant, and on 
the Staphylinidae by Research Associate Charles H. Seevers. Re- 
search on the Museum's collections of insects is in progress at 
various museums and other institutions by specialists to whom 
special collections have been sent. Thus Major Robert Traub, of 
the Army Medical Center, Washington, D.C., is reporting on fleas, 
and Dr. P. J. Darlington, of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, 
at Harvard University, is engaged on the carabid beetles, both studies 
being based on the collections of the Museum's Philippines Zoological 
Expedition of 1946-47. 

In the Division of Lower Invertebrates Curator Fritz Haas 
concluded his studies of the mollusks of Lake Titicaca, collected by 
the Percy Sladen Trust Expedition in 1937 and consigned to him for 
report by the British Museum (Natural History). Chicago Natural 
History Museum will retain duplicate specimens of the surprisingly 
large number of new species and new genera to be described. Curator 
Haas identified and described much new South American material 
from miscellaneous sources, especially from the Museo de Historia 
Natural "Javier Prado," in Lima. 

Chief Curator Karl P. Schmidt was engaged during the year in 
the revision of Ecological Animal Geography (Hesse, Allee, and 
Schmidt) for a new edition. He also completed the final proof- 
reading of Principles of Animal Ecology (with W. C. Allee and others), 
which appeared in October. 

The major expedition of 1949 was the Rush Watkins Siamese 
Zoological Expedition. A. Rush Watkins, sponsor of the expedition, 
Curator Sanborn, and Frank C. Wonder, Taxidermist, left in May 
for Bangkok. Six weeks were spent in the north-central part of 
Siam at the Gairdner rice plantation at Wang Pratart. After speci- 
mens of the rare Eld's deer were obtained, together with a series of 
small mammals including a representation of the squirrels for which 
the fauna of southeast Asia is remarkable, the party moved to 
southern Siam, on the Malay border, where Curator Sanborn and 
Mr. Watkins were successful in obtaining two Malaj^ tapirs, to be

used in a projected habitat group for William V. Kelley Hall (Hall 17, 
Asiatic Mammals). In addition to mammals, the expedition col- 
lected fresh-water fishes, amphibians and reptiles, and birds. 

The Colombian Zoological Expedition, which went into the field 
in 1948, is directed mainly toward a comprehensive report on the 
mammals of Colombia. Philip Hershkovitz, Assistant Curator of 
Mammals, had been engaged on this project for the Smithsonian 
Institution before coming to the Museum, a project that forms a 
logical continuation of Andean studies begun by the late Wilfred H. 
Osgood, Chief Curator, and continued by Curator Sanborn in Peru 
and Chile. Assistant Curator Hershkovitz established his base for 
the early part of 1949 in Barranquilla, collecting at six localities in 
northern Colombia before moving to Medellin in November. 

Field studies within the borders of the United States included 
Curator Pope's collecting and field observations on salamanders in 
Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, and Arkansas. He worked 
effectively during July and August from the convenient base afforded 
by the University of Virginia summer school at Mountain Lake, 


Virginia. In early autumn Assistant Curator Dybas visited Florida 
and other southeastern states to collect the minute beetles of the 
family Ptilidae on which he specializes. Because these beetles are 
especially to be found in the pores of the polypore fungi, the trip 
was arranged to coincide with the peak of development of the poly- 
pores. Assistant Curator Dybas was accompanied by two graduate 
students in the Department of Zoology of the University of Chicago, 
Harry Nelson and Robert Sokol, University of Chicago Museum 
Fellow in Zoology. In the local field, the remarkable autumn 
aggregation of blue racers in the Indiana Dunes was again observed. 
Assistant Curator Inger, assisted by various willing members of the 
zoological staff, marked and released snakes and recaptured eight 
of the specimens marked in 1948. 

Chief Curator Schmidt represented the Museum and the National 
Research Council at the Seventh Pacific Science Congress in New 
Zealand in February. This enabled him also to make collections in 
the field of lizards and frogs and to study the lizard-like reptile of 
New Zealand, the tuatara. To observe this remarkable creature, 
he visited the outlying islands of Karewa, in the Bay of Plenty, and 
Stephen and Middle Trios islands in Cook Strait. He was aided 
by William H. Dawbin, Lecturer at Victoria University College, 
Wellington, and arranged for Mr. Dawbin's continuance of studies 
on the tuatara. 

Field work in the Philippines and Peru was supported by the 
Museum during the year, with gratifying resulting additions to the 
collections. D. S. Rabor, Professor of Zoology at Silliman University, 
who had aided the Museum's Philippines Zoological Expedition in 
1946-47, continued collecting on Negros Island. Celestino Kali- 
nowski, who returned to Peru after a year's training and study in 
the Museum's laboratories, began collecting immediately on his 
return to the Kalinowski estate, "La Cadena," at Marcapata, in 
the "montana" of Peru. The first installment of collections received 
from him indicate that he is established in a favorable region to aid 
in the program of studies on the zoology of Peru initiated by the 
Museum in 1911, the logical continuation of the Chilean program. 

Accessions— Zoology 

The more important gifts of specimens during the year include a 
collection of 452 East African bird skins and a rare African viper, 
from Mr. and Mrs. Walther Buchen, of Chicago; 247 South American 
bird skins from Research Associate Conover; the type and paratype 


of a new species of salamander from Dr. S. C. Bishop, of the Uni- 
versity of Rochester; 499 specimens of amphibians and reptiles from 
Panama, collected and presented by Harold Trapido; and 391 
specimens of reptiles and amphibians from East Africa, presented 
by Dr. Henry Field, of Washington, D.C. A notable collection of 
101 specimens of fishes from the Mediterranean, representing 28 
species, was presented by Leander J. McCormick, fishes that are 
of particular importance to West Indian (and Bermudan) studies 
of marine fishes because early descriptions of tropical marine fishes 
were mainly based on the Mediterranean fauna. In connection with 
enquiries regarding the relations of the domestic pig with its wild 
relatives, the Armour Livestock Bureau, through Colonel Edward N. 
Wentworth, presented the heads of five purebred pigs of different 
breeds, from which skulls were prepared. As in previous years, 
the Chicago Zoological Society, Brookfield, Illinois, and the Lincoln 
Park Zoo, Chicago, made major contributions to the Museum's 
materials for anatomical study and to the general collections of birds, 
mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. 

In the Division of Insects the largest single gift was of 3,035 
specimens from Mexico, Colombia, and Micronesia, collected by 
Assistant Curator Dybas on collecting trips before joining the Mu- 
seum staff and during his years in the Pacific Islands with the 
United States Army (1943 45). Important gifts of land and fresh- 
water shells were received in the Division of Lower Invertebrates 
from Dr. Otto Schubart, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Dr. Harald Sioli, 
of Belem, Brazil, and R. Wright Barker, of Maracaibo, Venezuela. 
Walter J. Eyerdam, of Seattle, Washington, presented mollusks 
that he had collected in various parts of South America. A collec- 
tion of marine shells especially selected to fill gaps in our collections 
was presented by Dr. Jeanne S. Schwengel, of Greenwich, Con- 
necticut. This collection contains a specimen of one of the living 
species of Pleurotomaria, a genus of snails, mainly known from fossils, 
whose lineage extends to the Silurian period. 

The largest single accession of mammals was that from the 
Colombian Zoological Expedition (1948-50), from which 755 speci- 
mens reached the Museum, together with unaccessioned birds, 
reptiles, and amphibians. An important purchase of West African 
bird skins from Reverend A. I. Good added 721 specimens to the 
growing African collections. In the Division of Reptiles Curator 
Pope's summer collecting added 863 amphibians and reptiles. For 
the Division of Fishes a collection of about 1,000 specimens of 
fresh- water fishes from northern Siam was the major accession of 


the year. In the Division of Insects an especially valued collection 
of beetles of the family Lucanidae (the stag beetles) was obtained 
by purchase. This collection, which amounts to 4,069 specimens, 
all identified, and includes some two dozen types and numerous other 
unique specimens, was, like other similar collections made by 
specialists, a "labor of love" extending over many years. Ex- 
changes of mollusks led to the addition of paratypes of species for 
the most part not previously represented in the Museum. 

Exhibits— Zoology 

The reinstallation of the habitat group of Alaska brown bears was 
a major improvement in Richard T. Crane, Jr., Hall (Hall 16), 
where American mammals are shown in their natural surroundings. 
The group now shows a gigantic male, in standing position, with a 
female and two yearling cubs. The specimens were collected by 
Mr. and Mrs. William S. Street at Mother Goose Lake in the Alaska 
Peninsula and mounted by C. J. Albrecht, formerly of the Museum's 
taxidermy staff, who accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Street in Alaska. 

In Hall 21, devoted to the exhibition of a systematic series of 
North American and exotic birds, the program of addition of "sub- 
jective exhibits" that present anatomical and other information 
has continued under the direction of Curator Rand, with Kenneth 
Woehlck, Assistant Taxidermist, in change of preparation. This 
program, initiated by Rudyerd Boulton, former Curator of Birds, 
has been emphasized by Curator Rand, whose plans resulted in 
the addition of four alcove cases of this nature in 1948 (see 1948 
Report) . Cases placed on exhibition in 1949 deal with the phenomena 
of reproduction in birds, with the association of birds with man in 
the suburban environment of Chicago, with the architecture of nests, 
and with the aberrant types of nests and the range of variation in 
birds' eggs, together with eggs of the commoner species nesting in 
the Chicago region. Mrs. Smith, Associate, directed the preparation 
of "Resident Birds of Chicago," the case exhibiting the principal 
species of birds resident throughout the year in the Chicago region 
as well as devices for attracting, sheltering, and feeding them. 

Progress was made in Albert W. Harris Hall (Hall 18, Reptiles, 
Amphibians, and Insects) in the installation of models of amphibians 
and reptiles made in celluloid by Taxidermist Leon L. Walters and, 
more recently, by Ronald J. Lambert, Assistant Taxidermist, under 
Mr. Walters' direction. A screen is devoted to the "front-fanged 
snakes," the cobras, mambas, coral snakes, and sea snakes. Re- 


arrangements of other screens were made to bring together the vipers 
and pit vipers (with an enlarged model of a rattlesnake head to show 
the pit) and to insert models of frogs and toads, such as the giant 
marine toad so abundant in tropical America, bright-colored tree 
frogs, and other forms new to the exhibits of these creatures. The 
protectively colored green tree-boa, in its typical resting pose in a 
saddle-shaped coil on the limb of a tree, is shown with the boas and 
pythons, and the large water snake of the East Indies, one of the 
principal sources of snake-skin leather for shoes, is placed with them. 
Further work of installation and reinstallation of the amphibian 
and reptile models is in progress. In the Division of Insects exhibition 
work was centered on the completion of the case showing the life- 
history of the malaria-bearing mosquito, which has been combined 
with an explanation of the malaria cycle in the human blood. 

This magnificent group of giant Alaska brown bears in Hall 16 was collected and 
presented by Mr. and Mrs. William S. Street, of Seattle, Washington. Taxidermy 
is by C. J. Albrecht and background by the late Arthur G. Rueckert, Staff Artist.

A series of eighteen letters written by Charles Darwin was displayed in a special 
exhibit. This valuable collection is a highly prized possession of the Museum Library. 


Demands on the resources of the Library become more exacting as 
research expands in the scientific departments of the Museum, and 
acquisitions through purchase and exchange have been made in 
terms of what the Library is expected to provide in printed informa- 
tion covering the speciaHzed fields. Bearing in mind also the relation- 
ship of the Library with the future of the Museum, trends in research 
and exploration are taken into account so that required material will 
be at hand when it is needed. 

The Library's resources are excellent, the collection is strong in 
scientific journals and serials, and, through continued effort, gaps 
in the periodical holdings have been filled and runs completed. Every 
effort is being made to secure additional basic material not already 
in the Library. Acquisitions during the past year from all sources 
aggregated 3,505, of which 375 were gifts. The total collection is 


now 136,126. Among notable acquisitions of the past year are the 
following representative selections of books and serials :

The growing importance of the Library collection has increased 
the interlibrary loan service not only locally but also throughout the 
country. The exchange of scientific and serial publications with 
other organizations has expanded the Kardex record to four files. 
As in any highly specialized research institution, the material 
published by other scientific organizations forms the backbone of 
the Library of this Museum. These publications consist of journals, 
bulletins, memoirs, proceedings, and transactions in which new 


species are described (of first importance in taxonomy and nomencla- 
ture) and a record of research published. In this field of literature, 
back numbers are never old. They are constantly referred to and 
are bound so that they may become permanent parts of the collec- 
tion. The Kardex system provides a control record that gives 
finger-tip information on the Library's holdings, last number re- 
ceived, and missing parts to be acquired. 

Recataloguing of the Library's collection according to the Library 
of Congress classification, begun in 1947, has continued. Progress 
has been made in reclassifying a sizable portion of the periodical 
holdings, many volumes in the Museum's four departments, and 
separate series of special publications. Collections such as the 
Berthold Laufer library and the Charles V. Riley collection of books 
on entomology, as well as all new purchases and material currently 
received, have been catalogued under the new classification. 

In May the card catalogue was moved to a new location in the 
center of the south end of the reading room. At the same time, 
to serve better the specialized needs of the Library, the plan of the 
catalogue was changed by dividing it into two sections: author and 
title section and classified subject section. The catalogue of the 
John Crerar Library was moved from a stackroom and aligned with 
the Museum Library catalogue in its new location so that convenient 
consultation of both catalogues is possible. A survey of the depart- 
mental libraries showed overcrowded shelves and resulted in the 
decision to transfer to the general library (with the approval of the 
Chief Curators and Curators) all volumes not needed for constant 
reference, a move that provided shelf space in the departmental 
libraries but added to the shelving problem in the general library. 
The space vacated by the change in location of the card catalogues 
has been used for additional shelving. 


The Division of Photography made during the year a total of 15,926 
negatives, prints, enlargements, lantern slides, and transparencies 
for the Museum, other institutions, the press, and general sales. 
More than 106,000 negatives are now in the files. 

Until her resignation in September Miss Norma Lockwood, Staff 
Illustrator, prepared drawings, lettering, and miscellaneous art work 
for the departments and divisions of the Museum as their needs 
required. The work of the office was ably continued by Douglas E. 
Tibbitts, who succeeded Miss Lockwood as Staff Illustrator. 



Activities during the year in the Division of Motion Pictures were 
devoted almost entirely to completion of the Museum's motion- 
picture production, "Treasure House." This film, which pictures 
the tremendous amount of work done by the Museum staff in pre- 
paring science and natural-history exhibits, will be ready for showing 
in 1950 as one of the Museum's educational services. In addition, 
two complete motion pictures were re-edited for use in the public 
schools, and similar productions are being put together from material 
in the Museum's film library. Color transparencies and motion- 
picture records of natural-history subjects were made for the scien- 
tific departments of the Museum, a type of material that has come 
to be important to the scientific staff both as visual aid and as help 
in research problems. 


Distribution of the Museum's publications to institutions and 
scientists on our foreign exchange list was brought back to a fairly 
normal basis by the resumption of exchange with western Germany 
and by the sending of accumulated wartime and postwar issues to 
that area, although publications intended for Berlin and certain 
other areas still await more favorable shipping conditions. Sevent}"- 
two names that had been on the exchange mailing list before the war 
were reinstated, and forty new names were added. A total of 21,436 
copies of the Museum's publications was distributed in both foreign 
and domestic exchange. Sales totaled 3,654 copies in the Scientific 
Series, 10,283 copies in the Popular Series, and 27,846 copies of 
miscellaneous publications, such as guides, handbooks, memoirs, and 
technique papers (see page 87). For future sales and other distribu- 
tion an additional 12,895 copies of publications were wrapped, 
labeled, and stored. 

The Museum Press issued during the year twenty-two titles in 
the Scientific Series of publications and one in the Administrative 
Series. The total number of pages printed in all books, including 
an index for one completed volume in the Scientific Series, was 
2,694, and the total number of copies was 27,289. Twelve numbers 
of Chicago Natural History Museum Bulletin were printed, averaging 
6,000 copies an issue. Other work of the Division of Printing in- 
cluded posters, price lists, "Museum Stories for Children" (Raymond 
Foundation), lecture schedules. Museum labels, post cards. Museum 
stationery, and specimen tags, totaling 850,292 impressions.

Report of the Director to the Board of Trustees for the Year 19Jf8, 138 pages, 
30 illustrations 


For an entire year the Museum was brought to the mind of every 
person who looked up a telephone number in The Red Book, Chicago 
Classified Telephone Directory. Through the courtesy of the Reuben 
H. Donnelley Corporation, directory publishers, and the Illinois Bell 
Telephone Company the Museum's name and a picture in colors 
of its north central fagade appears on the front cover of the edition 
of The Red Book that was distributed in June, 1949. Inside the book 
in prominent page-one position appears the story of Chicago Natural 
History Museum. Inasmuch as millions of people constantly consult 


The exhibit in Hall 19 showing the sumacs has been reconditioned and rearranged. 

this directory and the number of their references to it in a yedir 
mounts up to milhons upon milHons, the powerful cumulative effect 
of this important publicity almost defies estimation. The use of 
this space, free of all charges, was graciously extended to the Museum 
by the Donnelley Corporation, and the Museum acknowledges this 
valuable contribution with deepest gratitude to the publishers and 
the sponsoring telephone company. 

Publicity on all Museum activities was maintained at the usual 
pace by news releases, feature articles, and pictures. Direct news 
releases from the office of the Public Relations Counsel numbered 263. 
Additional publicity was obtained through issuing advance proofs 
of the Museum Bulletin to editors, through follow-ups by newspapers 
on released material, and through "tie-ins" with organizations whose 
scope of activity appropriately could be associated with exhibits or 
events in the Museum. Although the major emphasis was upon 
publicity in the metropolitan newspapers of Chicago, all releases 
were sent to community and foreign-language newspapers circulating 


among residents of the various city neighborhoods and groups of 
various national origins, to the daihes and weekHes pubHshed in 
Chicago suburbs, and to newspapers in the Ilhnois-Wisconsin- 
Indiana-Michigan area beyond the city's suburban radius. The 
more important news from the Museum was carried by wire and mail 
news-services to newspapers throughout the United States, and in 
many instances international circulation was obtained. 

For their interest in the Museum and their generous co-operation, 
acknowledgment is made to the publishers, executives, and editorial 
staffs of all the newspapers, large and small, that have contributed 
to keeping the public informed about the institution. Gratitude is 
expressed in particular to the Chicago Daily News, Chicago Daily 
Sun-Times, Chicago Herald- American, Chicago Tribune, Associated 
Press, United Press, International News Service, Science Service, 
Acme News Pictures, and the City News Bureau of Chicago. 

The Museum continued to be represented each Saturday through- 
out the year with a series of stories on the "Children's Corner" 
program over radio station WCFL. Among other radio stations 
that offered their facilities to the Museum for special-feature pro- 
grams, educational programs, and representation in general news 
broadcasts are WGN, WMBI, WMAQ, WIND, WBBM, WENR, 
WLS, WJJD, Columbia Broadcasting System, National Broadcast- 
ing Company, American Broadcasting Company, and Mutual Broad- 
casting System. The Museum was represented also in several tele- 
vision-newsreel programs and by two special-feature programs, on 
"Women's Magazine of the Air" over station WGN-TV, in which 
material from Museum exhibits was shown. Continuous contact 
between the Museum and its Members was maintained through the 
Bulletin, a monthly publication that gives coverage of all Museum 
activities and news both in articles and pictures. 

The usual other publicity activities were maintained. Folders 
by the thousands telling of the Museum's exhibits and services were 
distributed through the co-operation of department stores, libraries, 
travel agencies, hotels, civic bureaus, and through seven other 
Chicago museums in other fields of science and art that advertise 
themselves in a jointly published folder. The Museum's lecture 
courses for adults and the children's programs presented by the 
Raymond Foundation were advertised by posters displayed in rail- 
road stations and on suburban trains. This was made possible, 
without charge, by the co-operation of the Illinois Central System, 
Chicago and North Western Railway, the Chicago, Aurora and Elgin 
Railroad, and the Chicago Transit Authority. 



The laboratories and research collections of the Museum were open 
to visiting scientists, as in past years, and through interlibrary loan 
the resources of the Library of the Museum were available to other 
institutions. The Museum continued its co-operative educational 
plans with the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, 
Antioch College, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Classes from the School of the Art Institute, the Chicago Academy 
of Fine Arts, the Academy of Applied Arts, and the Institute of 
Design use the Museum exhibits regularly as a part of their class 
work. These students, ranging in age from children of six years to 
adults, can be seen sketching in the halls any day of the week, but 
they come in greatest number on Saturdays. They find that natural- 
history exhibits can take the place of living models and that the 
designs of primitive people offer many new ideas. Most of these 

Classes from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago sketch in the Museum halls. 


young students are from the School of the Art Institute, and results 
of their work are of such interest that for one month in the summer 
selected ceramic objects and sketches in water color, chalk, and oil 
are shown in a special exhibit in Stanley Field Hall of the Museum. 

The Museum is a school in another sense when teachers-in- 
training come in organized classes from near-by colleges in their 
search for the community resources available to them in future 
teaching. As they use the Museum exhibits they observe other 
teachers and school classes studying in the Museum and thus learn 
what to do and what not to do in planning trips to museums and 
other similar institutions. Roosevelt College, Northwestern Uni- 
versity, Chicago Teachers College, and Pestalozzi Froebel Teachers 
College make use of the Museum in this teaching project. Frequent 
use is made of Museum exhibits by individual students from Roose- 
velt College, with which the Museum co-operates by certifying 
attendance of the students at the Museum. The co-operative 
educational plan adopted in 1946 by this Museum and Antioch 
College, of Yellow Springs, Ohio, provides for the temporary em- 
ployment by the Museum of successive groups of undergraduate 
students who alternate periods of study on the college campus with 
periods of work with pay. Under this plan ten young men and 
women were temporarily employed in 1949 by the Museum in its 
scientific departments and administrative offices. 

The course in muscology covering all details of curatorial duties 
in a museum was continued at the Museum by the staff of the 
Department of Anthropology in co-operation with the Department 
of Anthropology of the University of Chicago. Donald Collier, 
Curator of South American Ethnology and Archaeology, supervised 
a research course at the Museum in South American and Middle 
American archaeology for three graduate students from the Uni- 
versity of Chicago. During the year Dr. Paul S. Martin, Chief 
Curator of Anthropology, Dr. Alexander Spoehr, Curator of Oceanic 
Ethnology, George I. Quimby, Curator of Exhibits, and Curator 
Collier gave lectures in their special fields at the University of 
Chicago, Northwestern University, and the Art Institute of Chicago. 
While in Mexico City in January both Chief Curator Martin and 
Curator Collier gave lectures for the Mexican Society of Anthro- 
pology and the National School of Anthropology. Dr. Martin also 
lectured at the Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe in June and at 
the Cranbrook Institute of Science, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, in 
December. He acted as consultant in anthropology for Wilson 
College, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. 


Dr. Theodor Just, Chief Curator of Botany, held a botanical 
seminar for faculty and students at the University of Michigan, 
Ann Arbor, in June, on aspects of plant morphology and evolution, 
conducted a class in the summer session at Northwestern University 
in biological evolution and modern society, and gave two botanical 
seminar talks in November at the University of Illinois, Urbana. 
Dr. Jos^ Cuatrecasas, Curator of Colombian Botany, spoke before 
the ecology group at the University of Chicago in November, and 
in January Dr. Julian A. Steyermark, Associate Curator of the 
Herbarium, was Biology Day speaker at William Jewell College, 
Liberty, Missouri. Classes in botany from the University of Illinois, 
the University of Chicago, and Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, 
Indiana, visited the Department of Botany at various times during 
the year and were conducted through the laboratories and herbaria. 

The second section of the graduate course offered by the Uni- 
versity of Chicago in vertebrate paleontology (reptiles and mammals) 
was given in the Museum during the winter quarter by Dr. Everett C. 
Olson, Associate Professor of Vertebrate Paleontology at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago and Research Associate in Fossil Vertebrates at 
the Museum. During the course Bryan Patterson, Curator of Fossil 

Ann Paton (left) and Anne 
Crawford, undergraduate stu- 
dents from Antioch College 
employed in the Department 
of Geology, check Museum 
photographs of meteorites 
with originals. The Navajo 
meteorite in the foreground is 
one of about 850 specimens. 


Mammals, lectured on various mammalian orders. An advanced 
course in the cranial morphology of vertebrates was offered at the 
Museum by the University of Chicago during the autumn quarter 
under the direction of Research Associate Olson. Lectures and 
demonstrations were given in the Division of Vertebrate Paleon- 
tology, Department of Geology, and dissection was conducted in 
the laboratory of the Division of Vertebrate Anatomy, Department 
of Zoology, under the supervision of D. D wight Davis, Curator of 
Vertebrate Anatomy. Dr. Rainer Zangerl, Curator of Fossil Rep- 
tiles, Curator Patterson, and Curator Davis participated with Dr. 
Olson in the instruction. Curator Zangerl and Curator Patterson 
served as Lecturers in the Department of Geology of the University 
of Chicago. 

Lectures presented at other institutions by members of the staff 
of the Department of Zoology include the conduct of the course on 
arthropods at the University of Chicago, in the spring quarter, by 
Rupert L. Wenzel, Assistant Curator of Insects; a lecture before the 
zoology club of the University of Chicago by Curator Davis, who 
continued his association with the university as member of the 
Paleozoology Committee; a lecture before the ecology group of the 
university by Henry S. Dybas, Assistant Curator of Insects; two 
lectures before the undergraduate course in biology at the same 
university by Loren P. Woods, Curator of Fishes; and lectures at 
the University of Illinois by Curator Woods and Colin C. Sanborn, 
Curator of Mammals. A series of demonstrations and lectures by 
Dr. Fritz Haas, Curator of Lower Invertebrates, was held in the 
Museum for a small group of students of the University of Chicago. 
The work of Clifford H. Pope, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, 
at the Biological Station of the University of Virginia at Mountain 
Lake was essentially a co-operative arrangement in which the 
students who aided him profited from his instruction. 

Scientists from other institutions continued to make use of the 
research materials and laboratories of the Museum. Adrian Digby, 
Assistant Keeper of the American Collections, British Museum, 
London, spent a week in the Museum in the course of his survey of 
storage and exhibition methods in museums of the United States 
and examined the Middle and South American anthropological 
collections. Dr. Jos^ Cruxent, director of the National Museum 
of Natural Sciences, Caracas, Venezuela, spent some time studying 
the South American anthropological collections as well as methods 
of exhibition in anthropology and zoology. Dr. Heinrich Doering, 
director of the Museum fur Volkerkunde, Munich, studied the 


Nazca ceramics from Peru; Miss Grace Denny, Professor of Textile 
Arts at the University of Washington, the Peruvian collection; 
Dr. Tullio Tentori, of the Royal Museum of Prehistory and Eth- 
nography, Rome, the collection of bows and arrows from North and 
South America; Dr. Henri Lehmann, of the Musee de I'Homme, 
Paris, the Aztec clay figurines; Dr. S. V. Cammann, of the University 
Museum, Philadelphia, the collection of Tibetan paintings and the 
Chinese collection; and E. B. Sayles, of Arizona State Museum, 
techniques of exhibition. R. B. Inverarity, director of the recently 
established International Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe, New 
Mexico, spent several days in consultation with the staff of the 
Department of Anthropology on problems of museum architecture, 
storage, and exhibition and, in connection with his researches on 
Northwest Coast art, studied the Northwest Coast collection. S. A. 
Cohagan, director of a museum-planning group in Waterloo, Iowa, 
consulted with Chief Curator Martin and other staff members. 

Many visiting botanists studied the collections in the Museum's 
Herbarium. Dr. Gabriel Gutierrez, of Medellin, Colombia, studied 
Cinchona and Leguminosae; Dr. David D. Keck, of the Carnegie 
Institution of Washington, Division of Plant Biology, Stanford, 
California, grasses; Dr. John T. Buchholz, of the University of 
Illinois, conifers of the Pacific area; Dr. Carlos Mufioz, of the 
Ministry of Agriculture, Santiago, Chile, Chilean plants; Emil P. 
Kruschke, of the Milwaukee Public Museum, Crataegus; Jesus 
Idrobo, of the Instituto Ciencias Naturales, Bogata, Colombia, 
Maranthaceae; and Dr. Grace C. Madsen and Dr. Chester S. Nielsen, 
both of Florida State University, Florida algae. 

Dr. Frank E. Peabody, of the University of Kansas, made use 
of the collections and facilities of the Division of Vertebrate Paleon- 
tology, Department of Geology, in his study of the type of Araeo- 
scelis. Dr. Charles A. Reed, of the College of Pharmacy, University 
of Illinois, worked on fossil carnivores; Dr. Walter Segall, of North- 
western University, continued his study of edentates; and Morris 
Skinner, of the Frick Laboratories, American Museum of Natural 
History, New York, investigated various fossil mammals. Dr. 
William E. Swinton, of the British Museum (Natural History), 
London, who was in the United States to study museum methods in 
many institutions, found time while in the Museum to investigate 
a few dinosaurs, his particular interest. 

The collections of the Department of Zoology in all of its Divisions 
were consulted by numerous visitors for specific studies, supple- 
menting the large use of the collections by loan to other institutions. 


Of especial interest were consultations with Dr. William A. Craft, 
director of the Swine Breeding Laboratory at Ames, Iowa, and 
Colonel Edward N. Wentworth, of the Armour Livestock Bureau, 
with regard to the living species of wild pigs and their relation to 
problems in the domestic breeds. Dr. Robert Mertens, director of 
the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfort, Germany, who as one of the 
University of Frankfort University of Chicago exchange of staff was 
invited to make the Museum his headquarters while in Chicago, 
spent two months working on the collections in the Division of 
Reptiles and engaging in local field work with members of the staff. 
Use of the laboratory and collections of the Division of Anatomy 
during the year by various persons engaged in medical research was 
a gratifying demonstration of the usefulness of this Division to a 
wide field outside the Museum. Among those making such studies 
were Dr. E. L. Du Brul, of the College of Dentistry, University of 
Illinois (architecture of the skull in rabbits) ; Waldemar Meister, 
Chicago College of Osteopathy (microarchitecture of bone) ; Arne 
Bjork, of Vasteras, Sweden (prognathism in primate skulls) ; Dr. 
C. 0. Bechtol, of Oakland, California (anatomy of the shoulder); 
and H. F. Moseley, Toronto (anatomy of the shoulder in primates). 

The Museum co-operated with Dr. Willard F. Libby, of the 
Institute for Nuclear Studies, University of Chicago, in his develop- 
ment of the carbon-14 method of dating archaeological, paleonto- 
logical, and paleobotanical remains. A number of wood samples of 
contemporary age from various parts of the world furnished to Dr. 
Libby from the Museum's anthropological and botanical collections 
were used in a world assay of organic materials that proved that the 
carbon-14 content of contemporary organic matter is the same re- 
gardless of the climate, altitude, and latitude of the place of origin. 
A sample of planking from the mortuary boat of King Sesostris III 
of Egypt, who died about 1849 B.C., was furnished to Dr. Libby 
as one of a half-dozen ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian speci- 
mens of known age used to test further the carbon-14 method. The 
carbon-14 date for this sample was 1751 ±400 B.C., the deviation 
from the known date, which is not absolutely accurate, thus falling 
well within the range of the calculated error. Dr. J. R. Arnold, of 
the Institute for Nuclear Studies and the carbon-14 project, visited 
the Museum's archaeological camp in New Mexico in order to co- 
operate with Chief Curator Martin on the techniques of gathering 
suitable samples to be used in carbon-14 dating of archaeological 
materials. He also wished to obtain first-hand knowledge of the 
most advanced methods of doing archaeological work. 


Interested grammar-school students listen to their teacher's story of the panda. 

Students of African ethnology and physical anthropology, who 
came to the Museum mainly from the Air University Libraries, 
Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, and the dental schools of the 
University of Illinois and Northwestern University, were given 
assistance in their work. Miss Vivian Broman, of the University 
of Chicago, undertook the classification of the Maya collection in 
terms of the phase or period names in current use in Maya archae- 
ology; Miss Rose Lilien worked with the Museum's collection of 
Peruvian clay figurines in preparing a thesis for the degree of master 
of arts at Columbia University; and Philip Dark, graduate student 
at Yale University, made a study of the Djuka collection from 


Dutch Guiana for a thesis on Djuka art. Miss Margaret Murley, 
graduate student in botany at Northwestern University, wrote her 
doctoral dissertation on seeds of the Cruciferae of eastern United 
States under the supervision of Chief Curator Just, and Nicholas 
Hotton III, a graduate student in geology at the University of 
Chicago, worked on the jaw apparatus of Xenecanth fishes under 
the direction of Research Associate Olson. Two graduate students 
at the University of Chicago, William J. Beecher, working on the 
functional anatomy of birds, and Robert F. Inger (of the staff), 
working on the Philippines Amphibia, were assigned to the general 
supervision of Chief Curator Schmidt, as Lecturer in the Depart- 
ment of Zoology of the University of Chicago. Much of the work 
of Robert Sokol, University of Chicago Museum Fellow in Zoology, 
studying plant lice under the direction of Research Associate Alfred 
E. Emerson, was done in the Museum's Division of Insects. 

Several staff members took part in radio and television programs 
during the year. Chief Curator Martin gave an interview-talk for 
the Voice of America radio program, which was broadcast to twenty- 
eight countries in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. He participated 
in a roundtable program on archaeology of the Southwest for the 
radio station in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was interviewed for the 
20th Century Limited radio program concerning the 1949 Southwest 
Archaeological Expedition, and, with Curator Quimby, gave an 
interview over radio station WMBI on the Museum's new Hall of 
Indian America (Hall 4). Chief Curator Schmidt made a transcrip- 
tion at the WMAQ radio studios for the radio station in Norfolk, 
Virginia, on the nature of a natural-history museum. Curator Woods 
appeared on a television program dealing with the Marineland 
aquarium at St. Augustine, Florida, and acted as consultant to 
Coronet Films in connection with short educational films.

three. Dr. Martin also visited Gila Pueblo, Globe, Arizona, for a 
conference on Southwestern pottery. As representative from the 
American Anthropological Association, Curator Collier attended the 
annual meeting of the Division of Anthropology and Psychology of 
the National Research Council, held in Washington, D.C., in May. 
He continued to serve as a member of the Committee on Carbon-14 
Dating of the American Anthropological Association and during the 
year attended three meetings of the committee, two in Chicago and 
one in New York. In September he attended in New York the 
annual meetings of the Institute of Andean Research, the Viking 
Fund seminars, and, as official representative of the Museum, the 
International Congress of Americanists. Curator Quimby also

mittee on Paleobotanical Nomenclature, of which he is chairman. 
He served in 1949 as chairman of the membership committee of the 
Society for the Study of Evolution and was elected secretary of the 
society for 1950-52. Curator Cuatrecasas was appointed a member 
of the organization committee of the Third South American Botanical 
Congress, to be held in Bogata, Colombia, in 1953, and Associate 
Curator Steyermark was elected secretary of the Systematic Section 
of the Society of Plant Taxonomists. Research Associate Tiffany 
as president presided over the meetings of the Phycological Society 
of America, and Research Associate Richards was elected chairman 


of the nominating committee of the American Bryological Society. 
During the year Associate Curator Steyermark was elected to 
honorary membership in Friends of Our Native Landscape, re-elected 
president of the Harrington (Illinois) Natural History Society, and 
re-appointed delegate from the Museum to the Conservation Council 
of Chicago. 

Bryan Patterson, Curator of Fossil Mammals, and Dr. Albert 
A. Dahlberg, Research Associate in Fossil Vertebrates, attended a 
conference on the fossil man-apes, Australopithecinae, of South 
Africa, held in New York in August under the sponsorship of the 
Viking Fund, Inc. Dr. Rainer Zangerl, Curator of Fossil Reptiles, 
Dr. Robert H. Denison, Curator of Fossil Fishes, Dr. Everett C. 
Olson, Research Associate in Fossil Vertebrates, and Curator

Associate Olson served as secretary-treasurer of the Society of Verte- 
brate Paleontology throughout the year. 

Emmet R. Blake, Associate Curator of Birds, and Melvin A. 
Traylor, Jr., Research Associate, attended the 1949 meeting of the 
American Ornithologists' Union at Buffalo. Dr. Austin L. Rand, 
Curator of Birds, is a member of the Council and chairman of the 
Brewster Award Committee of this society. Curator Rand and 
Associate Curator Blake served on the board of directors of the 
Illinois Audubon Society, of which Dr. R. M. Strong, Research 
Associate in Anatomy, is president. Rupert L. Wenzel, Assistant 
Curator of Insects, was president in 1949 of the Chicago Entomo- 
logical Society, and Dr. Fritz Haas, Curator of Lower Invertebrates, 
was elected president of the American Malacological Union. Karl 
P. Schmidt, Chief Curator of Zoology, continued as treasurer of 
the Society for the Study of Evolution. As representative of the 
American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists on the 
National Research Council and to the American Institute of Bio- 
logical Sciences he attended the annual meetings in May of both 
Council and Institute, and as delegate of the Museum and of the 
National Research Council he attended the Seventh Pacific Science 
Congress in New Zealand in February. He is a member of the 
Pacific Science Board, the committee of the National Research

At the annual meeting of the American Association of Museums 
held in Chicago in May the Director of this Museum was elected a 
member of the Council, governing board of the Association. Miss 
Miriam Wood, Chief of the James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond 
Foundation, spoke on teaching botany to children before the 
Children's Museum Section of the Association, which met in the 
lecture hall of this Museum, and Mrs. Meta P. Howell, Librarian 
of the Museum, read a paper on exchange of serial publications among 
scientific organizations before the Librarians' Section, which met at 
the Oriental Institute. Mrs. Eunice M. Gemmill, Associate Li- 
brarian, and Mrs. Howell attended the Midwinter Conference of 
the American Library Association in Chicago in January and meet- 
ings during the year of the American Library Association, Chicago 
Library Club, Illinois Regional Group of Cataloguers, and Special 
Libraries Association. 

Several staff members of the Museum serve in editorial capacities 
on scientific journals. Upon his departure in October for field work 
on Saipan Curator Spoehr resigned the book-review editorship of 
the American Anthropologist, and Curator Collier, who continued as 
contributing editor of El Palacio, was appointed to the position. 
Chief Curator Just is editor of Lloydia and on the editorial board 
of Ecology and Evolution, and Research Associate Sherff is a member 
of the editorial committee of Brittonia. Curator Zangerl continued 
as regional editor of the news bulletin of the Society of Vertebrate 
Paleontology. Chief Curator Schmidt is herpetological editor of 
Copeia, section editor of Biological Abstracts for amphibians and 
reptiles, and consulting editor of American Midland Naturalist. 

One of the busiest spots in the Museum is the children's lunchroom, where tables 
and benches are provided for the hundreds of school children who bring lunches. 



Sales in the Museum's Book Shop totaled $29,614.53, of which 
mail orders amounted to $2,137.98. The Book Shop is the exclusive 
distributor of a number of items, including the book Heads and Tales 
by Malvina Hoffman, the ''Map of Mankind" (a chart and pamphlet 
that deal with the world distribution of racial types, both illustrated 
with photographs of Hoffman sculptures), and certain publications 
of the Geographic Society of Chicago. During the year the Museum, 
through the Book Shop, undertook to act as distributor for the 
publications of the late Dr. A. J. Grout, well-known authority on 
mosses, by taking over from the executor of his estate the entire 
stock of his books. In acting as agent, the Museum is chiefly con- 
cerned with making these fundamental reference works and text- 
books available to students and research workers in the special field 
of cryptogamic botany. A reprint of eight bird plates from the 
portfolio of paintings by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, Abyssinian Birds 
and Mammals, a Museum publication long out of print, was placed 
on sale in the Book Shop late in the year. The sale of "Museum 
Stories for Children," written by members of the Raymond Founda- 
tion staff, continued as an important activity. Orders received by 
mail accounted for the sale of 30,589 copies of these stories. 


The Museum again achieved new records in attendance in its cafe- 
teria and lunchroom. In all, 256,179 people were served, an increase 
of almost 7,000 over last year, which marks the first time that the 
service has reached more than a quarter of a million people. Total 
sales, however, were slightly less than in the preceding year. Altera- 
tions in kitchen and serving equipment have speeded up service, 
resulting in considerably less delay to customers. 


Tuckpointing and masonry repairs in all light courts of the Museum 
building were completed during the year. The lower marble steps 
at the North Entrance were reset where necessary and tuckpointed, 
and a black top-covering was put on the north and west-door terraces 
and over the shipping and boiler rooms to re-establish smooth 
walking surfaces and to waterproof the areas beneath them. Light- 
ning-rod points were installed on high points of the roof and stack. 
Extensive measures for the extermination of termites were continued. 


Moving of exhibits and exhibition cases from Hall B on the 
ground floor to Hall 4 (Indian America) on the first floor was com- 
pleted. Larger poison pans were installed in the cases in eight of 
the exhibition halls to provide for the use of a bulkier insecticide 
that would eliminate any possibility of fire or explosion hazard. A 
room on the third floor in the Department of Botany was remodeled 
for use as a plant-poisoning room. A much-needed addition was 
the installation in the photography storage room of a large air- 
conditioning unit that allows valuable film negatives to be stored 
under the ideal conditions of temperature and humidity necessary 
for safe preservation of all photographic emulsions. 

Lighting of exhibition cases was improved in several exhibition 
halls, and Hall 4 was rewired to accommodate the exhibition cases 
moved from Hall B. Installation of fluorescent lighting was con- 
tinued, and maintenance work was done on electrical fixtures and 
plumbing as needed during the year. The heating plant was com- 
pletely renovated. One of the four old boilers was rebuilt for use 
in emergency and three were replaced with two new boilers of larger 
capacity. This improvement necessitated wrecking three old boilers, 
tearing out and replacing the boiler-room floor and foundations, and 
contracting for plumbing, electrical work, pipe covering, steam 
fitting, and brick work. Fires were laid under the rebuilt boiler the 
last of September to dry out the brick work, and steam was furnished 
with this boiler until completion of the new units, which were placed 
in service about the middle of November. An automatic firing- 
control panel and a new feed water-heater tank were installed. The 
steam pressure has been raised from eighty to one hundred pounds, 
with the result that more even temperature can be maintained 
throughout the building than was possible with the old boilers. 
Under contracts in force, 13,443,747 pounds of steam were furnished 
to the John G. Shedd Aquarium and 14,222,792 pounds to the 
Chicago Park District, a total of 27,666,539 pounds delivered.
