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, 1953. 

Throughout the year the problem of financial support was upper- 
most in the minds of the Trustees and the administration of the 
Museum. A special committee, consisting of Hughston M. McBain, 
chairman, Marshall Field, Jr., Henry P. Isham, and John G. Searle, 
was appointed early in the year, and this committee, in co-operation 
with President Stanley Field, assembled necessary data and prepared 
plans that now promise a brighter financial future for this institution. 

Studies by the committee clearly established the fact that every 
reasonable effort had been made toward financing through private 
sources. In the ten years from 1943 to 1952, income from endow- 
ments had increased from $213,250 to $753,836. During the same 
time, support from tax funds had increased only from $121,642 to 
$128,478. It was immediately apparent that, while benefits to the 
public had greatly increased during the ten-year period, support by 
the public had not. The Board of Trustees was naturally reluctant 
to look to taxation for increased support, but, in view of the facts 
established, this appeared to be the proper approach toward solvency. 
An approach was made to the Chicago Park District Commissioners 
by all the museums that, under the authority of state law, are 
entitled to share in the museums' tax levied by the Park District. 


As a result, the Park District Commissioners, after careful study 
and a public hearing that brought no dissenting opinion, voted an 
increase in the tax levy, which, although far below the amount 
authorized by the state legislature, will add approximately $52,000 
per year to the Museum's income beginning in 1955. It is desired 
to record here the thanks and appreciation of the Museum to the 
members of the Park District Board for their action in granting 
necessary relief while at the same time maintaining every effort to 
keep the taxation at the lowest possible level. Meanwhile, rigid 
economies in the operation of the Museum permitted some re- 
adjustment in compensation to employees late in the year. 


Total attendance recorded at the Museum during the year was 
1,204,855, a figure somewhat less than for the period a year ago 
but still impressive and within the range of normal attendance 
fluctuation. Of this group, only 132,198 people (slightly less than 
11 per cent) paid the regular admission fee of 25 cents and 1,072,657 
visited the Museum without charge, either coming on free days or 
being members of those groups that are admitted without charge 
at all times (see page 87 for comparative attendance statistics). 
It is essential, of course, that an educational institution of this type 
be available to all persons, regardless of their ability to pay. The 
work of the James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation 
for Public School and Children's Lectures (see page 25) continued 
as in former years to be a great drawing-card for the school children 
not only of Chicago but also of cities and rural communities in 
several surrounding states. May is the peak month of school-group 
attendance, although April and November were higher in 1953 
than in previous years. As usual, the Museum entertained the boys 
and girls who attended the National Congress of 4-H Clubs held in 
Chicago early in December. I am especially happy to report that 
the 4-H Donor Merit Award was presented to the Museum by 
G. L. Noble, Director, and Kenneth Anderson, of the National 
Committee on Boys and Girls Club Work, through the National 
4-H Club Congress. It is anticipated that the co-operation between 
the 4-H Club movement and the Museum will continue as long as 
these two organizations exist. Local organizations that used the 
Museum for their meeting place during the year included the Nature 
Camera Club of Chicago, Kennicott Club, and Illinois Audubon 
Society, which also holds its series of public lectures here. 



In recognition of his eminent service to science, Professor H. 0. 
Beyer, of Manila, who has won international acclaim as the out- 
standing authority on the ethnology and archaeology of the Philip- 
pine Islands, was elected an Honorary Member of the Museum by 
the Board of Trustees. This is an honor that has been accorded 
only to eight other persons in the history of the Museum (for names 
of Honorary Members see page 100) . The total number of Members 
of the Museum at the close of the year was 4,800. The number in 
each membership classification was as follows: Benefactors — 25 
Honorary Members— 9; Patrons — 15; Corresponding Members — 6 
Contributors — 186; Corporate Members — 38; Ldfe Members— 146 
Non-Resident Ldfe Members — 23; Associate Members — 2,174; Non- 
Resident Associate Members — 12; Sustaining Members — 12; Annual 
Members — 2,154. The Museum thanks its loyal Members for their 
public-spirited support of its scientific and educational work. Names 
of all Members of the Museum during 1953 are listed at the end of 
this Report under the various kinds of memberships that are offered 
by the Museum (see above). 


The third annual Members' Night was held at the Museum on 
Monday evening, October 5. The featured exhibit was the display 
of thirty-two magnificent colored folio prints of flowers published 
between 1798 and 1807 in London by the noted English physician 
and botanist, Robert J. Thornton. This collection, known as The 
Temple of Flora, is the most famous of all florilegia. The collection 
was lent to the Museum by one of its Members, Walter S. Ross, 
of Chicago. I desire here to record our sincere appreciation to him 
not only for the loan of the collection but also for his assistance in 
meeting costs of exhibition. A second feature was an exhibit ar- 
ranged by the Library of the Museum and the Department of Botany 
showing botanical illustration from its inception to the present 
time. The Museum is indeed fortunate to have in its own Library 
the volumes necessary to produce such an exhibit. This year no 
special entertainment was provided, so that Members could make 
the most of their opportunity to visit the scientific departments, 
laboratories, and workrooms of the Museum, which are not open 
at other times. Members of the staff were present to explain the 
work of the different departments. 



Member of the Board of Trustees since 1939 

Chairman of the Building Committee 

Member of the Executive Committee and Finance Committee 


It is with sincere personal regret that I record the death of Albert 
H. Wetten, a member of the Board of Trustees since 1939. As 
chairman of the Building Committee he had been extremely helpful 
to me on every occasion when I found it necessary to seek his aid. 
His fellow members of the Board of Trustees adopted the following 
resolution at the October meeting: 

"The Board of Trustees of Chicago Natural History Museum 
wishes to express on behalf of its members their deep affection and 
admiration for Mr. Albert H. Wetten who died suddenly on Sep- 
tember 3, 1953, after an eminently successful business career of 
sixty-five years. 

"Mr. Wetten became an Associate Member of the Museum in 
1926 and in 1939 was elected a member of the Board of Trustees. 
In 1948 he was elected a Contributor. He served as a member of 
the Building Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Executive 
Committee, in each of which he served with distinction. 

"His interest in the work of the Museum was evidenced by his 
generous gift that made possible the inclusion of color plates in the 
Museum publication by Dr. Ch'eng-chao Liu, Amphibians of 
Western China, and it was characteristic of his devotion to the pur- 
poses of the Museum that he should have remembered it with a 
generous gift in his will. 

"He had a long and varied experience in real estate and finance 
upon which he drew to the great advantage of the Museum in 
helping it deal with its many financial and investment problems, 
and in addition he gave freely of his time and counsel to other 
educational, cultural, and charitable institutions, among which were 
The Newberry Library, The Children's Memorial Hospital, and St. 
Luke's Hospital. 

"The loss of his inspiration and counsel will be keenly felt by 
his associates in the Museum. 

"Therefore, be it resolved that this memorial be recorded in 
the minutes of this meeting and that the Secretary send a copy to 
Mrs. T. Lloyd Kelly and to Mrs. James S. Pennington." 

For the forty-fifth consecutive time Stanley Field was elected 
president of the Board of Trustees and all officers of the Board 
were re-elected with him at the annual meeting in January. The 
officers are: Marshall Field, first vice-president; Henry P. Isham, 
second vice-president; Samuel Insull, Jr., third vice-president; 
Solomon A. Smith, treasurer; Clifford C. Gregg, secretary; and 


John R. Millar, assistant secretary. John T. Pirie, Jr., who was 
elected in December to fill the vacancy on the Board of Trustees 
caused by the death of Albert H. Wetten, was simultaneously 
elected a Corporate Member of the Museum. 

Clarence B. Randall, Trustee, and Clifford C. Gregg, Director, 
each were honored by a Freedoms Foundation Award for 1952, 
announcement of which was made on February 22, 1953, by Free- 
doms Foundation. The award to Mr. Randall was made in recog- 
nition of the excellence of his article, "FVee Enterprise Is Not a 
Hunting License," printed in the Atlantic Monthly, and the award 
to Colonel Gregg was made in recognition of the merit of an address, 
"Renewing Our Faith in Freedom," that he gave before the Young 
Men's Christian Association of Springfield, Illinois, at its annual 
retreat. (The Freedoms Foundation Award is a citation for effective 
interpretation of American institutions based on the philosophy 
of government by free men.) 


Again the Museum presented the free Saturday-afternoon lectures 
that it has offered to the public every year for more than half a 
century. The lectures are provided by the Edward E. Ayer Lecture 
Foundation Fund. A total of 16,010 adults attended the lectures, 
which this year numbered seventeen, and many letters of commenda- 
tion were received at the Museum. Such letters, either critical or 
commendatory, are always welcomed as guides to the selection of 
speakers and subjects for future lectures. 


The thirteenth series of Sunday-afternoon lectures by our Layman 
Lecturer, Paul G. Dallwig, was concluded in April. Demands of 
his business interests prevented him from opening his fourteenth 
season of lectures in the fall, but plans have been completed for that 
series to begin in January of 1954. A total of 2,372 people attended 
his lectures in January, March, and April of 1953. To keep his 
presentations up to date, Mr. Dallwig is continually revising his 
lectures to include new scientific information as it becomes available. 
I am pleased to express to him the sincere thanks of the Museum 
for his gift of time, energy, and effort in producing his unique 
series of lectures for Museum audiences. 



The James Nelson and Anna Louise Raymond Foundation continued 
with estabHshed programs and activities for school children and 
added new ones as need arose. Established programs included 
tours for school children according to their interests and according 
to suggestions in their course of study, special school-programs 
of illustrated introductions followed by supervised study in desig- 
nated halls (39 of these programs were given, with 5,297 in attend- 
ance), and motion-picture programs on Saturday mornings in 
March, April, October, and November and also on six Thursday 
mornings in July and August. Members of the increasing number 
of summer play-groups and day camps are the greatest part of the 
summer audiences, and attendance required a second showing of 
each program. Series of "Museum Stories" (Desert Life and Life 
in the Polar Regions) were distributed free to children at the Satur- 
day-morning motion-picture programs. Extension-lecture service in 
Chicago public schools continues but is decreasing, and the emphasis 
of all Raymond Foundation activities centers in the Museum where 

Special program in the Museum for Chicago public schools consists of illustrated 
introduction, directed study in selected halls, and general discussion of the results. 


the exhibit material is most usable. New types of programs resulted 
from needs of the organization of Girl Scouts in Chicago. Seven 
programs, offered as helps in nature-badge work, were given, with 
a total attendance of 580. On "Monday is Girl-Scout Day in the 
Museum" in July and August, several exhibits were marked to help 
the girls find their own answers in their nature-badge work, and a 
staff member of Raymond Foundation was on hand both morning 
and afternoon to help the girls. Eight of these programs were given, 
with a total attendance of 550. Brownie Scouts (girls of 7 through 
9 years) needed help too, and so a program was planned for them in 
October and November after the nine regular Saturday-morning 
movies. A "game" or "exploration sheet" was selected from several 
that had been prepai'ed, and then the Brownie leader took her girls 
to the exhibits to find the answers. A group of Girl Scout Museum 
Aides helped with these programs, in which a total of 1,019 Brownie 
Scouts participated. Another group of Girl Scout Museum Aides 
mounted plants in the Museum Herbarium under the supervision 
of Miss Olive Doig. Valuable and needed work has been accom- 
plished by these girls, and the Museum is grateful for their help. 

A summary of all activities of Raymond Foundation for the 
year, with attendance figures, follows:

Twenty new exhibits of macroscopic fungi grouped according to 
mode of spore-production were prepared in the workshops of the 
Department of the N. W. Harris Pubhc School Extension during 
the year by Albert J. Franzen, Preparator, and installed in portable 
cases for use in schools. These exhibits duplicated a set of five 
prepared in 1950 that had been tested for their effectiveness as 
visual aids through the co-operation of Research Associate Bertha 
M. Parker, science teacher at the Laboratory School of the Univer- 
sity of Chicago. A habitat exhibit of the red fox was also completed 
during the year, bringing the total of new exhibits to twenty-one. 

The Harris Extension prepares and maintains museum exhibits 
mounted in standard portable cases to be used in classrooms to 
supplement the teaching of science and social studies in the schools 
of Chicago. Two trucks operated by the department take the ex- 
hibits to schools according to a planned system of regular rotation 
during the school months whereby every two weeks each school 
receives on loan two exhibits that are exchanged two weeks later. 
Seventeen exchanges are made during the school year, and the order 
of circulation to elementary schools is so planned that no school 
receives the same exhibits twice during the eight years any one 
child is in attendance. Circulation during the year of portable ex- 
hibits functioned normally according to established procedure. 

Because of the growing importance of science in the school 
curriculum and the well-known meagerness of equipment for science- 
teaching in elementary schools, we have recognized more fully our 
part in fostering in the school children of Chicago greater under- 
standing of natural history. We have tried, therefore, to prepare 
exhibits that would be meaningful to the city child and have made 
every effort to keep the exhibits in repair. During the year work- 
shop repairs were necessary on 384 of the 1,000-odd exhibit cases 
circulated by the department. Most of these repairs were made 
during the months when circulation was halted for summer vacation 
and the drivers were in the Museum. At this time, too, the rack 
room in the Museum was rearranged to permit orderly filing of the 
newer exhibits. 

In the past, circulation of exhibits has been extended to private 
and denominational schools as well as to public schools and to 
public-service institutions that have demonstrated a need for the 
exhibit material. But because of the mounting school-population 
and the consequent establishment of new public schools in Chicago, 
we have found it necessary to establish rather rigid controls regarding

Chicago schools by the Department of the N. W. Harris Public School Extension. 

acceptance for service of instititions other than public schools. In 
spite of these controls the department has been severely strained in 
maintaining an adequate supply of exhibits to fill its obligations. 
At the end of the year the circulation list totaled 517, an increase 
of 7 over December of the year before. Forty-eight requests for 
specific exhibits and for study-kit material that can be handled 
directly by the students were received (as in other years, the material 
most in demand was birdskins). In filling these requests, 30 stand- 
ard exhibits and 865 bird, mammal, and rock specimens were sent 
out on special loans. 

There were several short field trips to wooded areas round about 
Chicago for collecting plant material accessory to the exhibits under 
preparation. Some small mammals, amphibians, and birds that 
were also brought in from these trips have been prepared and stored 
for installation in exhibits until the services of an artist for painting 
habitat backgrounds are available to the department. 



A bequest of $50,000 was received by the Museum from the late 
Thomas J. Dee, of Chicago, for the purpose of estabHshing the 
Thomas J. Dee Fellowship Fund, and the will of the late Albert H. 
Wetten, Trustee of the Museum, provided $7,500. S. C. Johnson 
and Son, Incorporated, Racine, Wisconsin, again gave $4,000 for 
research on wax-bearing palms; Dr. Maurice L. Richardson, Lansing, 
Michigan, added $4,350 to the Maurice L. Richardson Paleonto- 
logical Fund; and Miss Margaret B. Conover, Chicago, added $1,100 
to the Conover Game-Bird Fund, which was established by her 
brother, the late Boardman Conover, a Trustee of the Museum and 
Research Associate in the Division of Birds. Stanley Field, Presi- 
dent of the Museum, gave an additional $8,000 for the endowment 
of the Museum; Sewell L. Avery, Trustee, gave $10,000; Enterprise 
Paint Manufacturing Company, Chicago, gave $1,000; Hannifin 
Corporation, Chicago, gave $1,000; and $434.45 was received from 
the estate of Mrs. Abby K. Babcock. Gifts of money in memory 
of Albert H. Wetten were made by Wm. McCormick Blair, Stanley 
Field, Clifford C. Gregg, Arthur Rubloff, and Mrs. Roderick S. 
Webster, Other gifts of money were received from Allport Chari- 
table Trust, Atlas-Boxmakers Incorporated, Wm. McCormick Blair, 
Miss Frances J. Carter, Peder A. Christensen, C. Suydam Cutting, 
Albert B. Dick, Jr., William W. Judd, National Society of Colonial 
Dames of America (Illinois), Joseph H. Optner, Clarence B. Randall, 
John G. Searle, and Mrs. Ellen T. Smith, and there was even a gift 
of ten cents from Bobby Melville. 

Gifts of materials are listed at the end of this Report and under 
the headings of the scientific departments (see page 89). Donors 
who have given to the Museum $1,000 to $100,000 in money or 
materials are elected Contributors by the Board of Trustees (see 
page 101 for names of Contributors). Contributors elected in 1953 
are: Thomas J. Dee, posthumously elected (in recognition of his 
bequest listed above); Dr. Alfred E. Emerson, Chicago (gift of an 
important collection of termites); and Langdon Pearse, Winnetka, 
Illinois (gift of a collection of valuable books) . 

The Museum thanks its faithful volunteer workers for their help 
during the year. Some of them, designated as Research Associates 
and Associates, are included in the List of Staff at the beginning of 
this Report. Other volunteers are: Stanley Auerbach, Miss Holly 
R. Bennett, David Benson, Earl A. Cross, Tom Dolan, Richard 
Duffey, Miss Ruth Griswold, E. D. Hester, David Kistner, Miss 
Holly Merki, Harry G. Nelson, Edward Sella, and Ronald Ward. 



Lieutenant Colonel Robert Traub, of the Medical Service Corps of 
the United States Army, was elected Research Associate in the 
Division of Insects by the Board of Trustees, who also elected 
Clarence B. Mitchell, of Chicago, Research Associate in Photog- 
raphy. Dr. Waldemar Meister, of Chicago, was appointed Associate 
in Anatomy and Archie F. Wilson, of Flossmoor, Associate in Wood 
Anatomy. In October M. Kenneth Starr was appointed Curator of 
Asiatic Archaeology and Ethnology to fill a place long vacant in the 
Department of Anthropology, and John W. Thieret was appointed 
Assistant Curator of Economic Botany. Other appointments during 
the year were: Miss Lorraine Anderson, Assistant Registrar; Forest 
Highland, Assistant Recorder; Miss Mary Sue Hopkins, Secretary,

ciate, Department of Botany. Mathias Dones, Preparator in the 
Department of Botany for many years, retired in January. George 
Woodward, Captain of the Guard, who joined the guard force in 
1939, retired on September 30, and David Dunsmuir, member of 
the guard force since 1944, was appointed Captain of the Guard. 


It is with deep regret that I record the death on October 2 of 
John Emil Liljeblad, former Assistant Curator of Insects, who was 
in the service of the Museum for twenty-five years before his retire- 
ment in 1940, and the death on November 30 of Alfred Cleveland 
Weed, retired Curator of Fishes, who joined the staff in 1921 and had 
charge of the Division of Fishes for twenty-one years. 



The special exhibit for Members' Night of prints from Thornton's 
folio The Temple of Flora, lent by Walter S. Ross, of Chicago, and 
the supplementary display of botanical books from the Library of 
the Museum (see page 21) remained on exhibition in Stanley Field 
Hall until the end of October. Publication in April of Birds of 
Mexico, A Guide for Field Identification (see page 78), written by 
one member of the Museum's staff and illustrated by another (see 
1952 Report, page 51), was chosen as the occasion for a special 
exhibit, arranged in co-operation with the University of Chicago 
Press, to show how such a book is made. Other special exhibits 
during the year were fifty photographs by Dr. Justine Cordwell, 
anthropologist, showing life and art of Nigeria; fifty photographs by 
Cyrus Townsend Brady, Jr., of New York, part of an exhibit of 
Australasian native arts; twenty-nine paintings in tempera by Ber- 
nard and Harriet Pertchick, of New York, of flowering trees of the 
Carribean, sponsored by Alcoa Steamship Company; drawings made 

Loss of plant specimens from excessive tropical moisture was prevented by use of 
special drying equipment at base camp of the botanical expedition to Venezuela. 


in this Museum by students in the Junior School and Day School 
of the Art Institute of Chicago; Third Annual Amateur Handcrafted 
Gem and Jewelry Competitive Exhibition, sponsored by the Chicago 
Lapidary Club; and Eighth Chicago International Exhibition of 
Nature Photography, held as an annual event under the auspices 
of the Nature Camera Club of Chicago and the Museum.

Research and Expeditions 

The Southwest Archaeological Expedition of the Museum under 
the direction of Dr. Paul S. Martin, Chief Curator, assisted by Dr. 
John B. Rinaldo, Assistant Curator of Archaeology, spent four 
months in New Mexico digging in a thirty-room Mogollon Indian 
pueblo built about a.d. 1200. This pueblo, named Higgins Flat 
Site, is located a few miles northwest of Reserve, county seat of 
Catron County. Fourteen of the thirty rooms were completely 
excavated, a job that entailed moving from each room about ten 
to fifteen tons of rocks and a ton or so of dirt — the rocks were parts 
of collapsed walls and the dirt was wind-blown dust that had ac- 
cumulated during the centuries since the pueblo was abandoned. 

At various times since 1939 we have conducted researches on 
the life and culture of the Mogollon Indians, who lived in Pine 
Lawn Valley, New Mexico, from about 2500 B.C. to A.D. 1300, but 
most of our digging has been done in pit-houses (semisubterranean 
dwellings) . During the 1953 season, however, our work was confined 
entirely to the Higgins Flat Pueblo (or village), which was entirely 
a surface dwelling — that is, the walls were erected on top of the 
ground and the floors of the first-story rooms were not depressed 
but were at ground level. We believe that a portion of this pueblo 
was two stories high. The masonry was not so finished as that found 
in some of the large pueblos in Chaco Canyon, but it may be ranked 
as good. The exterior walls were a composite of laminated slabs 
and shaped blocks of tuff (for the outer face) and of random rubble 
packed in mud (for the inner faces). The partition walls of the 
interior, usually thin and not so carefully laid up, were field stones 
or rubble laid in thick layers of mud mortar. 

Our excavations demonstrated that this village (or clan apart- 
ment house) was the home of a dynamic, spirited, progressive 
people. Every room that was uncovered showed unmistakable 
signs of change, enlargement, redesigning, and alteration. Old walls 
had been torn out and new ones erected; partitions had been moved 
to provide greater or smaller space or storage space. Original 
floors, including appurtenances such as firepits and grinding bins, 
had been completely covered or re-covered by a thick superimposed 
layer of adobe plaster. In some rooms we found the original floor 
with two more above it. Nor had the building been completed in 
one operation. From a close study of the bonds and abutments at 


the corners of the masonry walls and from a study of the ages of 
the pottery-types found in the various rooms we can state with a 
high degree of probability that the pueblo first consisted of a nucleus 
of six rooms and that as the clan increased in size and there were 
more children, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, and grandfathers to 
house, more rooms were added. The size of the rooms indicates 
that the people were not niggardly in outlook but tended to have a 
bountiful attitude, for most of the rooms were of generous dimen- 
sions (10 feet by 14 feet to 18 feet by 26 feet). 

One of the rooms that was added in late times may have been 
used for religious purposes because it contained fewer domestic 
objects and yielded a tiponi of stone (symbol of an ear of corn). 
In another room we found five ceremonial objects on the floor near 
the firepit. These objects, well-carved from tuff (volcanic ash- 
stone), are two animal effigies, both of which are equipped with 
small receptacles for offerings (?) of turquoise and corn meal, a tu- 
bular tobacco pipe (7 inches long), a dish, and a disk about 8 inches 
in diameter, all of them gaily painted with mineral paints in stripes 
of four colors — black, red, yellow, and green. The disk may represent 
a sun-symbol and the colors may have indicated the cardinal points. 
The use of these objects is problematical, but from our knowledge 
of modern near-by Indians (Zuni) we guess that they played an 
important ritualistic role in ceremonies having to do with hunting, 
good crops, rain, and general prosperity. Undoubtedly these para- 
phernalia were of undescribable sanctity and are a rare find. 

One architectural feature is of special interest. We found that 
several of the inner rooms had been supplied with enough fresh air 
to keep the fires going by means of special masonry-lined ducts 
(10 inches by 12 inches) that ran under the floors of the rooms. 
The flow of fresh air, which was brought from an outside aperture 
through the ducts and introduced into the inner room at floor level, 
was induced by the building of a fire. 

Under the floors of several rooms we found fourteen skeletons, 
carefully buried and in many instances provided with tools, orna- 
ments, and dishes for use in the life hereafter. The ages of these 
individuals at the time of death ranged from one year to thirty 
years, but most of the burials are of individuals who were less than 
five years old at death. It seems probable that careful interment 
and mortuary offerings of clothing, jewelry, food, pottery, and the 
like were provided because ideas concerning a spiritual life had de- 
veloped. Furthermore, in all our digging experience we have rarely 
encountered infant burials so liberally endowed with material ob- 
jects for use in the spirit world. 


Higgins Flat Pueblo, western New Mexico, excavated by Southwest Archaeological 
Expedition in 1953, is shown in this photograph taken from plane of L. H. Keys. 

The Mogollon Indian bill of fare of the 13th century was varied 
and nutritious. The staple crops were corn, beans, and squashes, 
and these were supplemented by several wild foods such as yucca 
pods, walnuts, pinyon nuts, sunflower seeds, pigweed, amaranthus, 
wild grapes, tansy mustard, and prickly-pear-cactus fruit. Not 
content with the corn of his grandfathers, the Mogollon Indian 
constantly selected and bred strains better suited to this environ- 
ment. Varieties were sought that were resistant to drought and 
would hybridize with the older local varieties. We know from our 
previous research in the area that these Indian farmers were re- 
sponsible, in part at least, for a continuous improvement in the size 
of the ear and of the kernels and in a reduction of the number of 
kernel-rows. For example, at about the beginning of the Christian 


Era, the cobs were short (about 2 inches long) and the number of 
kernel-rows was predominantly 10, 12, and 14. By A.D. 1300, the 
ears of corn were longer and fatter and the predominant number 
of kernel-rows was 8. This makes for more food per ear. 

The site on which we worked this season spans the property of 
two ranches owned repectively by Owen McCarty and Ray Hudson. 
Lester H. Keys, M.D., made his airplane available and with the 
assistance of James Barter took photographs from aloft. The 
expedition returned with an excellent collection of materials that 
will aid in piecing together the culture of the Mogollon Indians of 
New Mexico in the 13th century. The collection includes about 
seventy whole or restorable pots, bits of charred matting and san- 
dals, charred corn, beans, and squashes, implements of bone and 
stone, ornaments of shell and turquoise, and ceremonial objects. 
Some of these materials will be used for exhibition purposes and the 
remainder for study and exchange. 

During the first months of the year Assistant Curator Rinaldo 
collaborated with Chief Curator Martin in the preparation of a 
detailed report on the excavations during the summer of 1952 of 
caves and cliff -dwellings in western New Mexico. From his strati- 
graphic and statistical analysis of the stone, bone, and clay artifacts 
recovered from these caves he concluded that projectile-point and 
grinding-tool types are useful as horizon markers in this area. He 
also prepared a section on methods of excavation for the report and 
directed preparation of maps and illustrations. From June to Sep- 
tember he supervised excavation for the Southwest Archaeological 
Expedition and, after his return from the field, began a study of 
the sequence in which the rooms were built in the prehistoric village 
excavated during the summer and started an analysis of the stone, 
bone, and clay artifacts collected there. From time to time he did 
research in Southwestern Indian ethnology and archaeology for the 
revision and installation of exhibits in Hall 7 (Ancient and Modern 
Indians of the Southwestern United States). 

Donald Collier, Curator of South American Archaeology and 
Ethnology, completed the illustrations for his report on excavations 
in 1946 in Viru Valley by the Archaeological Expedition to Peru 
and finished revision of the manuscript. He collaborated with Dr. 
A. L. Kj-oeber, Research Associate in American Archaeology, on a 
study of the Museum's Nazca collection from the south coast of 
Peru and also worked on a general study of the development of 
civilization in Peru. He continued to assist Dr. Willard F. Libby, 
of the Institute for Nuclear Studies, University of Chicago, in 
selecting archaeological samples for radiocarbon dating. 


Five painted stone objects of great sanctity were found in Higgins Flat Pueblo: 
two animal effigies (above), a tubular tobacco pipe, a sun-symbol disk, and a dish. 

During the first part of the year Miss Elaine Bluhm, Assistant 
in Archaeology, analyzed cordage, sandals, and textile fragments 
from Cosper Cliff Dwelling, Hinkle Park Cliff Dwelling, and 
Block Cave, New Mexico, results of which study are included in the 
final report by Martin and Rinaldo on the sites excavated in 1952 
(to be published in 1954), and continued study of ceramic and lithic 
material from the Sawmill Site, a Mogollon village with large rec- 
tangular kiva excavated by the Southwest Archaeological Expe- 
ditions of 1951 and 1952. For a period of ten weekends in the sum- 
mer she and David J. Wenner, Jr., of the Earth Science Club of 
Northern Illinois, directed the excavation of a late prehistoric In- 
dian village near Thornton, Illinois. A digging crew of volunteers 
and members of the club undertook the project to salvage as much 
information as could be recovered from the site, which will be de- 
stroyed by a new highway. After it is studied, material recovered 
from the excavation will be given to the Museum and to the De- 
partment of Anthropology and Sociology of the University of Illinois. 
During the year she reorganized the photographs in thirty albums 
and completed a cross-reference index for them. 

M. Kenneth Starr, Curator of Asiatic Archaeology and Eth- 
nology, joined the staff in mid-October. In addition to familiarizing 
himself with the materials in the Asiatic collections, he has begun 
to direct his energies toward four salient aspects of his duties: (1) 
planning for the complete renovation of the exhibits on East Asia, 
(2) expanding and rounding the Asiatic collections, (3) selectively 
adding to the Museum's library of writings on the anthropology of 
the Far East, and (4) continuing his research on the Chou period 
(traditionally 1122-256 B.C.) of China, research that involves the 
study of a portion of the Museum's collections. 

George I. Quimby, Curator of Exhibits, continued research in 
North American ethnology and archaeology for the exhibition pro- 
gram. He completed a report on Paleo-Indians and paleogeography 
and continued research on Paleo-Indians in the Great Lakes and

Mississippi Valley regions. For the exhibition program it was 
necessary to reorganize the reference collections in several store- 
rooms, to strip cases formerly on exhibition, and to make inventories 
of reference collections and of specimens placed on exhibition. This 
work was carried out by Phillip Lewis, assistant, until the latter 
part of March and by Whitney Halstead, assistant, for the rest of 
of the year under the supervision of Curator of Exhibits Quimby. 

Accessions— Anthropology 

Whole or nearly whole pottery vessels from any archaeological site 
are seldom found, and pottery vessels of any kind from the extinct 
Mogollon culture are singularly uncommon. Therefore, when about 
seventy whole or restorable vessels were found in an ancient Mogol- 
lon village in New Mexico, it was an occasion for rejoicing. These 
pots, dating from about A.D. 1200, include not only utility or cooking 
jars but also painted and decorated types, such as black-on-whites, 
black-on-reds, and polychromes. From deserted rooms, from graves, 
and from garbage dumps tools of bone and stone, objects of baked 
clay, charred textiles, and garden products were recovered. A most 
remarkable find on the floor of a room consists of five painted 
stone objects that undoubtedly were used in religious performances 
concerned with prosperity of the town (see pages 34 and 37). 

Exhibits— Anthropology 

Under the direction of Curator of Exhibits Quimby nineteen new 
exhibits and twenty-three reinstallations were completed during the 
year by Gustaf Dalstrom, Artist, Alfred Lee Rowell, Dioramist, 
Walter C. Reese, Preparator, and John Pletinckx, Ceramic Restorer. 
Fourteen of the new exhibits (including two miniature dioramas) 
were added to Hall 6 (Indian Tribes of Western North America), 
thus completing the California section as well as the hall itself, 
which contains fifty- two exhibits and is divided into three parts: 
Indians of the Plains, Intermountain tribes that show Plains in- 
fluence, and Pomo Indians of California. In George T. and^iancee^' 
Gaylord Hall (Hall 24, Ancient Chinese Civilization) sixteen exhibits 
were reinstalled on green backgrounds. Revision of Hall 7 (Ancient 
and Modern Indians of the Southwestern United States) was begun 
with reinstallation of seven exhibits and creation of five new ones. 
This hall will consist of four divisions.

Research and Expeditions 

Paul C. Standley, Curator Emeritus of the Phanerogamic Her- 
barium, in residence at the Escuela Agricola Panamericana near 
Tegucigalpa, Honduras, devoted his time to identification of speci- 
mens collected by various contributors, work on an annotated 
check list of plants of Honduras to be published by the Honduran 
government, and preparation of several papers on Honduran plants 
that were printed in Ceiha, the scientific journal issued by the 
Escuela (see page 77). J. Francis Macbride, Curator of Peruvian 
Botany, spent his full time preparing another part of his Flora of 
Peru, including a number of families following the Theaceae. Dr. 
Hugh C. Cutler, former Curator of Economic Botany and presently 
a staff member of Missouri Botanical Garden, continued his archaeo- 
logical explorations in the Southwest with the aid of a grant from 
the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research. 

Dr. Earl E. Sherff, Research Associate in Systematic Botany, 
prepared a series of papers on various dicotyledonous plants of the 
Hawaiian Islands and on certain composites of Mexico and south- 
eastern Africa (see page 77) . Dr. Jos^ Cuatrecasas, former Curator 
of Colombian Botany, continued his studies on the flora of Colombia 
with the aid of a grant from the National Science Foundation. 
Several papers based mainly on his own collections and on specimens 
received on loan from various herbaria were published during the 
year (see page 76). 

Dr. B. E. Dahlgren, Curator Emeritus of Botany, continued his 
research on palms, particularly of the genus Copernicia, which 
includes the well-known wax palms of northeastern Brazil and the 
less-known one of El Chaco, with two or three other less-important 
species of South America, while all others of its thirty-odd species 
are confined to the island of Cuba or growing almost within sight 
of its shores on the Isle of Pines and in Haiti. To gain knowledge 
of plants of this kind, of which only small fragments can be pre- 
served well in any standard herbarium, extensive studies in the 
field as well as in the laboratory and herbarium are required. With 
the aid of funds provided by S. C. Johnson and Son, Incorporated, 
the Curator Emeritus spent two months in Cuba, accompanied by 
John W. Thieret (see page 43), and brought back to the Museum 
considerable material, notes, and photographs. Thanks to the 
kindness of L. W. Hansen of Camagiiey and of Dr. Ian D. Clement, 


director of Atkins Garden and Laboratory of Harvard University 
at Soledad, seeds from palms marked in the spring were received 
from various local collectors and forwarded to the Museum. Some 
of these were germinated and grown in hydroponic solutions for 
seedling stages and cytological studies. During the latter part of 
the year large and excellent collections of Paraguayan palms col- 
lected by Dr. K. S. Markley, Dr. E. S. McLoud, and E. D. Kitzke 
were received from the S. C. Johnson Company. 

Dr. Theodor Just, Chief Curator, continued his study of living 
and fossil cycads and cycadeoids and wrote two invitation papers 
advocating the preparation of generic sjmopses of the entire plant 
kingdom. One paper was written as an introductory essay to a 
symposium on "Plant Genera" sponsored by the American Society 
of Plant Taxonomists and the other for a conference called by the 
National Research Council on "The Importance and Needs of Sys- 
tematics in Biology" (see page 76). 

Dr. Julian A. Steyermark, Curator of the Phanerogamic Her- 
barium, left the United States on March 7 from New Orleans for 
an expedition to Chimanta-tepui, an unexplored mountain in the 
"Lost World" of Venezuela, and returned to the Museum in August. 
During the first month and a half he was accompanied by a 
young naturalist, Charles Griffin, who collected animals of various 
groups for the Museum. The expedition first approached Chimanta- 
tepui from the western side by way of the Rio Apacara and Rio 
Abacapa and spent a month penetrating this section, but, because 
the Indians insisted on returning to their homes at the end of a 
month, it was not possible to continue the exploration of this part 
of the mountain to the highest portion of the summit where the 
most unusual species are found. Starting on May 4, the expedition 
approached the same mountain from the south by way of the Rio 
Aparur^n and Rio Tirica and, after nearly two weeks of arduous 
canoe travel over perilous rapids, reached the first camp site. From 
this base camp, at 3,000 feet above sea level, collecting continued 
for the rest of the time at various levels of Chimanta-tepui up to 
its summit, which was gained after weeks of difficult climbing and 
trail-making through an elfin forest over aerial roots and branches 
of low-growing trees and shrubs. Several camp sites were estab- 
lished between the base camp and the summit camp at 8,200 feet. 
A large camp was also made at the base of the bluffs at 500 feet on 
a spur leading to another section of the mountain. 

The flora varies at each level — the degree of endemism and species 
new to science increases with the elevation, and the majority of 
species found on the summit are entirely unknown to science. 


Many species of plants found at the base of the bluffs did not occur 
on the dissected plateaus of the summit. The lower and upper 
shoulders of the plateau also differ strikingly in contrasting vegeta- 
tion, and fantastic forms of plant life, such as have not been seen 
anywhere, were photographed and adequately collected in series of 
duplicates. A number of genera new to science were found here. 
Conspicuous elements of the flora were: peculiar pitcher plants 
(Heliamphora); giant purple bladderworts (Utricularia humboldtii), 
with flowers the size of sweet peas, growing as epiphytes in the water- 
filled bases of the giant bromeliad Brocchinia tatei; peculiar species 
of the fern Pterozonium; the endemic bromeliad genera, Navia, 
Brocchinia, and Connellia; century-plant-like Aholboda sceptrum with 
needle-tipped rosettes of silvery dagger-shaped leaves; several species 
of the endemic ericaceous Tepuia; many strange species of the 
yellow-flowered Stegolepis and Rapatea; restricted forms of melas- 
tomes; rubiacs; woody members of the gentian family; many kinds 
of pipeworts (Eriocaulaceae) ; yellow stargrasses (Xyris) ; Ilex; Podo- 
carpus; Drimys; and Magnolia; as well as numerous species of 
orchids and ferns and many peculiar genera of Compositae. 

A total of 1,500 numbers amounting to 10,000 specimens of 
plants was collected. So much time was required to reach the 
summit that it was possible to devote only one week to collecting on 
the summit itself, and, because the mountain is very extensive and 
has many ramifications in its 50-by-40-mile areal surface, only an 
estimated one-thousandth of its summit-area could be investigated. 
It is hoped that a more intensive exploration of the weird summit 
flora can be made while the trails leading to the summit are still 
intact. Dr. Bassett Maguire and Dr. John Wurdack of New York 
Botanical Garden explored a section of the Acopan-tepui portion of 
the Chimanta Massif on the east about the same time that Curator 
Steyermark carried on his explorations from the west and south. 
The collections will be combined and the whole series studied as a 
joint project of New York Botanical Garden and Chicago Natural 
History Museum. The novelties resulting from these expeditions 
will be published in a joint report. 

After returning to the Museum, Curator Steyermark devoted 
his time to determinations of South American, Central American, 
and Mexican collections and continued to revise the manuscript of 
several parts of Flora of Guatemala (Standley and Steyermark). 
As a result of the study of collections that he made in Venezuela 
during 1943-45, the third part of Contributions to the Flora of Vene- 
zuela (Steyermark and collaborators), which contains descriptions 
and illustrations of new species of the families Ericaceae through 


A giant purple bladderwort growing as an epiphyte in the water-filled base of a 
giant bromeliad was photographed in Venezuela by Curator Julian A. Steyermark. 

Compositae, was published by the Museum in December. The 
fourth part of this work, a report on species and genera new to 
Venezuela, together with critical comments on range extensions and 
ecological notes of the regions visited, is in press. 

In September the second part of Orchids of Guatemala by the 
late Professor Oakes Ames (director of the Botanical Museum of 
Harvard University, 1935-50) and Dr. Donovan Stewart Correll 
(United States Department of Agriculture, formerly research asso- 
ciate at the Botanical Museum of Harvard University) was pub- 
lished by the Museum. Profusely illustrated. Part 2 contains de- 
scriptions and accounts of sixty genera and their species as repre- 
sented in Guatemala. The bound edition offered for sale to orchid 
lovers and horticulturists has been very well received. 

In the early part of the year John W. Thieret, Chicago Natural 
History Museum Fellow, Department of Botany, University of 
Chicago, continued his investigation of seed and fruit morphology, 
particularly of the Scrophulariaceae, and prepared his dissertation 
under the direction of Chief Curator Just. Following his appoint- 


ment as Assistant Curator of Economic Botany in October, he began 
a revision of the family Scrophulariaceae as represented in Central 
America. In addition he spent considerable time in reorganizing 
the Museum's wood collection, which now contains about 41,000 
specimens. Mrs. Ann Bigelow, assisted by Robert Yule, completed 
the labeling of approximately 11,000 specimens (including duplicates) 
and finished work on the collection of woods of the United States 
from the College of Forestry of the State University of New York 
and the identified numbers of the Williams and Krukoff collections 
of South American woods. In addition, she packed in readiness 
for sale or exchange over 5,000 duplicate wood-specimens. A large 
collection of samples of Ecuadorean trees was cut into standard-size 
wood-specimens by Walter Huebner, Preparator. 

Dr. Francis Drouet, Curator of the Cryptogamic Herbarium, 
identified numerous algae and did research, with William A. Daily 
of the herbarium of Butler University, on the classification of micro- 
scopic algae. Dr. Hanford Tiffany and Donald Richards, Research 
Associates in Cryptogamic Botany, continued their studies of Oedo- 
goniaceae and mosses, respectively. Dr. E. P. Killip, Research 
Associate in Phanerogamic Botany, spent some time working on 
the algae of the Isle of Pines and the Florida keys. Dr. Rolf Singer, 
Guggenheim Fellow, pursued his research on tropical American 
fungi in the cryptogamic herbarium during the period from January 
to May. During the summer, W. Jan Newhouse of the University 
of Hawaii studied the Myxophyceae of the Society Islands, and Dr. 
Chester S. Nielsen and Dr. Grace C. Madsen of Florida State 
University studied the algae of Florida. Miss Linda Newton of 
the British Museum (Natural History), Mrs. Fay K. Daily of 
Butler University, and Miss Margaret E. Barr of the University of 
Vancouver each spent a week or more at the Museum in research 
on various groups of cryptogams. 

Since 1947 Joshua Daston, Assistant in Botany, has duplicated 
some 25,000 negatives of the type-photograph collection housed in 
the Museum. Far larger than any similar collection, the type- 
photograph collection of the Museum contains at present 41,943 
catalogued negatives of type or historical specimens of tropical 
American plants deposited in the major herbaria of Europe. Pre- 
pared before World War II during a ten-year period under the 
supervision of J. Francis Macbride, Curator of Peruvian Botany, 
the negatives were made on nitrate-base film. Unfortunately a 
number of these negatives showed signs of deterioration, and there- 
fore constituted a fire hazard. Their great scientific value made it 
desirable to convert the entire collection from nitrate-base film to 


Deteriorated negatives of type-photographs are being replaced by restored negatives 
through the skillful work Joshua Daston, Assistant in Botany (see opposite page). 

modern safety-base film. The results obtained by Assistant Daston 
through skillful use of special physical and chemical methods and 
processes are phenomenal (see the accompanying illustration). 

Emil Sella, Curator of Exhibits, left early in the summer with 
his son Edward on a four-week collecting trip to Tennessee and 
North Carolina. The last two weeks in June were productively 
spent in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the vicinity 
of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Working facilities at park headquarters 
were made available through the courtesy of Edward A. Hummel, 
park superintendent. Arthur Stupka, park naturalist, gave valuable 
assistance that saved Curator Sella considerable time and effort in 
locating and collecting the desired material, leafy branches needed 
for reproductions to supplement exhibits. Taking advantage of the 
abundant flowering period of June, some additional specimens were 
also collected, among them flowering branches of purple rhododen- 
dron and mountain camellia (Stewartia). The second half of the 
trip centered in Chapel Hill at the University of North Carolina, 
where ideal laboratory facilities were offered by Dr. J. N. Couch 
and generous aid was given by Dr. H. L. Totten. 


Accessions— Botany 

The largest gifts this year to the phanerogamic herbarium include 
2,545 plant specimens from the Chicago area. Major collections of 
plants acquired through exchange came from Cuba (1,270), Haiti 
(438), Honduras (326), Africa (362), Japan (400), and Mexico (134). 
The 10,000 specimens gathered in 1953 through the Museum's 
botanical expedition to Venezuela represent the largest single col- 
lection added to the phanerogamic herbarium. Notable accessions 
of the cryptogamic herbarium were 2,739 algae of the Hansgirg 
Collection (gift) and 378 miscellaneous algae (exchange), chiefly 
Romanian, from the Natural History Museum in Vienna and 2,500 
fungi of Michigan purchased from Dr. Rolf Singer, of Nebraska 
Wesleyan University (see page 44), with the funds provided by 
Research Associate Richards. During the year 3,268 plants were 
mounted in the phanerogamic herbarium. Poisoning and mounting 
was done by Miss Olive Doig, Mrs. Jennie Pletinckx, Miss Maruja 
Kalinowski, and Nils Siegbahn. Mrs. Effie M. Schugman and Miss 
Alice Middleton mounted plants in the cryptogamic herbarium. 

Exhibits— Botany 

Continuous progress is being made in Charles F. Millspaugh Hall 
(North American Woods, Hall 26). During the year eight leafy 
branches were completed and added to the exhibits. Of these, the 
models of sweet gum (Liquidambar styraciflua), pecan (Carya pecan), 
osage orange (Madura pomifera), and chestnut (Castanea dentata) 
were assembled by Artist-Preparator Samuel H. Grove, Jr., and the 
branch of ironwood (Ostrya virginiana) and restoration of shortleaf 
pine (Pinus echinata) by Curator of Exhibits Sella. Technician 
Frank Boryca assembled the models of sweet birch (Betula lenta) 
and willow oak (Quercus phellos) and prepared the necessary foliage 
for the entire group. The two important installations in Martin A. 
and Carrie Ryerson Hall (Hall 29, Plant Life) were reproductions of 
a branch of camphor (Cinnamomum camphora) in the fruiting stage, 
which was added to the Laurel family exhibit, and a branch of 
silver-bell in flower (Halesia diptera), a member of the Storax family, 
prepared, respectively, by Artist-Preparator Grove and Curator 
Sella. In the Hall of Food Plants (Hall 25) rearranged installations 
were made of exhibits of some important small grains, including 
wheat, oats, rice, barley, and rye. In this, Curator Sella was assisted 
by Preparator Huebner, who also reinstalled the transparencies. 


Department of Geology 

Research and Expeditions 

As reported previously, Bryan Patterson, CuraU.r of Fossil Mam- 
mals, spent 1952 and the early part of 1953 in Argentina studying 
type and other specimens of fossil mammals in collections there. 
For the opportunity to carry out this work thanks are given to the 
John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and to the authori- 
ties of Argentine museums, especially the Museo Argentino de 
Ciencias Naturales and the Museo de la Ciudad Eva Peron (formerly 
La Plata). While in Argentina, Curator Patterson prepared two 
papers on fossil mammals, both published in 1953 (see page 77), 
and others, some in collaboration with Jorge L. Kraghevich of 
the Museo Argentino, are in preparation. Since his return he has 
continued working on these and on completing other studies laid 
aside during his absence. 

Dr. Rainer Zangerl, Curator of Fossil Reptiles, continued his 
researches on the vertebrate fauna of the Selma formation of Ala- 
bama, and the results of his studies on the turtles of the family 
Protostegidae and Toxochelyidae were published by the Museum 
during the year. He also completed a paper, "Die Oligocaenen 
Meerschildkroten von Glarus," to be published early in 1954 in 
Abhandlungen der Schweizerischen Palaeontologischen Gesellschaft. 
His current studies, in co-operation with Preparator William D. 
Turnbull, include a restudy of the Miocene sea-turtle Procalpochelys 
grandaeva and the genus Catapleura. Another sea-turtle from the 
Mooreville Chalk of Alabama is also a subject of his present studies 
and continuing research. 

Dr. Robert H. Denison, Curator of Fossil Fishes, continued his 
work on Devonian fishes, of which the Museum now possesses an 
excellent collection as the result of the field work that he has been 
conducting during the past several years. His paper on Heterostraci 
from the Early Devonian of northern Utah was published during 
the year by the Museum. An opportunity to extend his studies 
and collecting farther afield was afforded by the award of a John 
Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for 1953 and 
1954. During 1953 he worked in Norway and Sweden, comparing 
North American Devonian material with the unrivaled collections 
in museums there, and he will devote the first half of 1954 to study 
and field work in the British Isles. He had planned field work at 
Beartooth Butte, Wyoming — the outcome of a favorable reconnais- 


sance made there in 1949 — but his departure for Europe prevented 
his taking part. In his absence the project was ably carried out by 
Orville L. Gilpin, Chief Preparator of Fossils, assisted by Preparator 
Turnbull and Mrs. Priscilla F. Turnbull, Assistant in Fossil Verte- 
brates. The work of integrating the collections of fossil vertebrates 
from the University of Chicago into those of the Museum was con- 
tinued by Mrs. Turnbull, who systematically arranged the Cre- 
taceous, Eocene, most of the Oligocene, and the Pleistocene mam- 
mals and also gave attention to the fossil turtles and fishes. Al- 
though taking proper care of the collection is routine, this work 
facilitates both research and exhibition and thus forms the valued 
background for success in the varied activities of the Museum, par- 
ticularly those connected with research and exhibition. 

George Langford, Curator of Fossil Plants, has added several 
new forms of Pennsylvanian plants to the monograph on Pennsyl- 
vanian flora that he has been preparing for the past few years. 
During the field season he collected from the Pennsylvanian deposits, 
west of Wilmington, Illinois, a number of specimens showing large 

One of the few known skeletons of the spectacular reptile Edaphosaurus is now 
exhibited in Ernest R. Graham Hall, with illustrations (on wall of case) showing 
suggestions by paleontologists of the probable function of its weird back-spines. 


stem-scars hitherto known as Caulopteris and Megaphyton. He 
beheves that he has secured evidence to conclude, at least for the 
time being, that they are not scars of branches or stems of fronds 
but that they represent nut-like fruits growing directly out of the 
stem, and he will seek further confirmatory evidence during the field 
season in 1954. He also collected a large number of plant specimens 
from the Upper Cretaceous and Lower Eocene clays of Tennessee 
and Mississippi. These specimens, being embedded in friable clay, 
necessitate careful preparation for their permanent preservation, 
and a great deal of his time was devoted to the task. 

Eugene S. Richardson, Jr., Curator of Fossil Invertebrates, 
continued his studies of Coal Age insects from the strip mines of 
Will and Grundy counties, Illinois, and completed a manuscript on 
them in which several new species were described. His studies 
were based on specimens collected by staff members of the Depart- 
ment of Geology and on specimens borrowed from other collections. 
In connection with his studies of the Coal Age fauna of that area 
he prepared manuscripts on the general occurrence and paleoecology 
of the fossils, on a new form of marine worm, and on some prob- 
lematical spirally grooved fossils. Currently he is working on a 
species of amphineuran mollusk ("sea-mouse") and a rare giant 
arthropod from the same deposits. His interest in the invertebrate 
fauna of Will and Grundy counties led him to several brief collecting 
trips to the strip mines during the field season. 

Dr. Sharat K. Roy, Chief Curator, devoted much of his time to 
supervisory work and to writing descriptive labels in connection 
with the reinstallation of the Hall of Physical Geology (Hall 34). 
Early in the year he studied the post-eruptive stage of the volcano 
Paricutin in Mexico and collected in and around the crater a number 
of specimens that could not have been collected while the volcano 
was active. While in Mexico he went through various areas in 
which silver, opal, and onyx mines are located. He continued his 
studies of meteorites and spent three weeks at the United States 
National Museum seeking data relating to various problems that 
had arisen in the course of his work. A paper on fresh-water lime- 
stone from the Torola Valley of northeastern El Salvador, prepared 
by him in collaboration with Robert K. Wyant, Curator of Economic 
Geology, was published by the Museum. It is also to be published 
in Spanish early in 1954 by the Instituto Tropical de Investigaciones 
Cientificas, San Salvador. The material upon which the paper is 
based was collected by Chief Curator Roy in 1951 during his stay 
in El Salvador as the Museum's representative for research in 
geology at the Tropical Institute. 


In the geochemical laboratory, Curator Wyant worked on the 
separation of schribersite and cohenite by chemical methods in 
several iron meteorites and made a statistical correlation of trace 
elements in sedimentary rocks that have undergone metasomatism. 
In connection with a paper on chondrules (see page 73) he examined 
the thin sections of chondritic meteorites in the collection of the 
Museum, prepared about one hundred color microphotographs of 
various types of chondrules, and, as comparative material, photo- 
graphed a number of spherulitic forms in obsidian and natural glass. 
Late in September he visited the United States National Museum, 
where he conferred with Dr. E. P. Henderson on problems of 
meteorites and meteorite analyses. 

Accessions— Geology 

A portion of the skeleton of an American mastodon found near 
Michigan City, Indiana, was presented by Ernest Delco, Mrs. D. L. 
Casey gave a fine skull and jaws of Eporeodon from the John Day 
formation of Oregon, and an excellent specimen of the uncommon 
Pennsylvanian amphibian Phlegothontia was found and presented by 
the Turnbulls. Of special importance to the current studies of 
Curator Richardson are the gifts of five rare fossil insects from the 
Pennsylvanian of Illinois, one each from George Langford, Jr., 
Charles A. Ross, the Turnbulls, Jon Whitfield, and Mrs. Robert H. 
Whitfield. The largest number of specimens added to the study- 
collection during the year^265 fossil invertebrates from various lo- 
calities—came from the collections of Dr. John H. Britts (deceased), 
of Clinton, Missouri. E. E. Schneider presented a hand specimen 
of blue opaline quartz porphyry and several small crystals from 
Texas, and a double strand seed-pearl necklace was the gift of 
Mrs. Marion Rubens, of Chicago. 

Exhibits— Geology 

Nine new exhibits were completed and installed in the new Hall 
of Physical Geology (Hall 34), bringing the number of exhibits now 
on display to eighteen. When completed, the hall will contain 
thirty-seven exhibits. All efforts are being made to present the 
subject-matter to the public and to students of geology in as lucid 
and attractive a manner as possible. When specimens seemed in- 
adequate to explain fully a certain conception, appropriate illustra- 


tive materials were painted directly on the wall of the exhibition 
case as a substitute or as a supplement with excellent results. 
Participating in the program, as before, are Harry E. Changnon, 
Curator of Exhibits, Miss Maidi Wiebe, Artist, and Henry Horback 
and Henry U. Taylor, Preparators. Chief Curator Roy acted in a 
supervisory capacity and wrote the descriptive labels. The skeleton 
of the reptile Edaphosaurus was remounted by Chief Preparator 
Gilpin and Preparator Stanley Kuczek and placed in Ernest R. 
Graham Hall (Hall 38, Fossil Vertebrates). This carried to a suc- 
cessful conclusion the reinstallation of the magnificent series of 
Permian amphibian and reptile skeletons included in the gift of fossil 
vertebrates received from the University of Chicago in 1947. Work 
has now been resumed on dinosaurs and other reptiles that were laid 
aside in 1948 when the program of remounting the Permian skele- 
tons was begun (typical case for these is shown on page 48). 

This is one of nine new exhibits placed in the Hall of Physical Geology (Hall 34).

THE aiunc or TMC CikKTM 



Department of Zoology 

Research and Expeditions 

In intervals of time salvaged from his administrative duties, Chief 
Curator Karl P. Schmidt continued his long-term studies of American 
coral snakes and the herpetological fauna of southwestern Asia and 
prepared two historical essays, "A Century of Studies in Herpe- 
tology, 1850-1950," and "A Century of Studies in Animal Ge- 
ography, 1850-1950," to be published in a centennary volume by 
the California Academy of Sciences. He made a two-week recon- 
naissance of Israel, where, with the active aid of colleagues at the 
Hebrew University in Jerusalem, the Biological Institute in Tel 
Aviv, and of the Teachers Seminary near Haifa, he was able to visit 
nearly all parts of the country, to see the several distinctive environ- 
mental provinces, and to see living specimens of Palestinian snakes 
and lizards long known to him from preserved material. 

Research in the Division of Mammals has been varied and 
almost world-wide. Curator Colin Campbell Sanborn continued 
his special studies of bats and completed reports on small collections 
of mammals from the Philippines, French Equatorial Africa, Vene- 
zuela, Peru, and Arabia. Assistant Curator Philip Hershkovitz 
has undertaken revisions of five genera of South American rodents 
and is engaged also on a reclassification of New World deer. The 
Peru Zoological Expedition, 1953-54, of which Celestino Kalinowski, 
Assistant Taxidermist, is in charge, left in March to make general 
collections of vertebrates in south-central Peru and reports satis- 
factory results at the end of the year. Dominick Villa, Tanner, 
continued his effective care of skins of large mammals and the 
preparation or reconditioning of smaller specimens, with the aid of 
Assistant Taxidermist Kalinowski before his departure for Peru. 

In the Division of Birds the studies of Curator Austin L. Rand 
on Philippine birds were crystallized in a check list of birds of the 
archipelago, which was completed at the end of the year, and other 
studies of North American, Central American, African, and Asiatic 
birds have resulted in manuscripts in press. In addition he revised 
the manuscript by Dr. V. G. L. van Someren on habits of East 
African birds for publication by the Museum. The manuscript of 
"Handbook of Birds of El Salvador," prepared by Curator Rand 
(who in 1951 was the Museum's representative in zoology at the 
Instituto Tropical de Investigaciones Cientificas in San Salvador) 
and Research Associate Melvin A, Traylor, Jr., was translated into 


Spanish by the Tropical Institute for pubHcation by the Institute. 
At the end of the year Curator Rand was in the PhiHppines collecting 
and studying birds with Field Associate D. S. Rabor. Associate 
Curator Emmet R. Blake continued his study of neotropical birds, 
with special reference to Mexican fauna and to Panamanian, Colom- 
bian, and Bolivian collections, and completed the bibliographic 
work for the revision of the American jays, blackbirds and allies, 
and vireos to be published as sections of Peters' Check-List of Birds 
of the World by Harvard University Press. In May he began a 
three-month field-survey of Mexican bird-life and, with his own 
field guide. Birds of Mexico, in hand (see page 78), devoted special 
attention to problems of distribution, ecological association, and 
field identification. The departmental carry-all, which provided a 
mobile base and effective transportation, enabled him to visit twenty- 
six of the thirty-one Mexican states and all but five of the eighteen 
recognized biotic provinces, leaving out only the Yucatan and 
Lower California peninsulas. This journey was, in effect, a recon- 
naissance of Mexico of great importance to future studies by Ameri- 
can ornithologists. Mrs. Ellen T. Smith, Associate, who continued 
her volunteer aid, worked several days each month identifying birds 
in collections from Borneo. 

Curator Clifford H. Pope, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, 
continued his study of amphibians and reptiles of Mexico and of 
salamanders of western North America. He engaged in field studies 
and collecting in northwestern Mexico, California, and Oregon early 
in the year and in July took a six-month leave of absence to work 
on his book on reptiles of the world. Hymen Marx, Assistant, 
completed a study of the snake genus W alter innesia, described a 
new Colombian species of the remarkable worm snake Anomalepis, 
and did bibliographic work for the study-collection of frogs of the 
Belgian Congo (received from Pares Nacionaux du Congo Beige). 
He engaged in studies of Bornean reptiles with Robert F. Inger, 
Assistant Curator of Fishes, and on crocodilians with Dr. Frederick 
J. Medem, Guggenheim Fellow who, as guest-scholar at the Museum, 
is studying his own material together with that of the Division of 
Amphibians and Reptiles (Dr. Medem is Professor ad honorem of 
the Instituto de Ciencias Naturales, Universidad Nacional, Bogata, 
Colombia). Miss Laura Brodie, Assistant, continued her study of 
the autumn aggregation of blue racers in the Indiana dunes. Stanley 
Rand, of DePauw University, who served as temporary assistant to 
Chief Curator Schmidt during the summer, worked on problems of 
Central American herpetology. He had made a collection of am- 
phibians and reptiles in El Salvador in 1951. 


The panoramic background on the curved wall behind the specimens in the habitat 
group of Upper Nile marsh birds was painted by Douglas E. Tibbitts, Illustrator, 
from a scale-painting made from kodachromes that were taken in the field (Hall 20). 

In the Division of Fishes Curator Loren P. Woods continued 
his investigation of the fish fauna of the Gulf of Mexico and adjacent 
Caribbean waters in regard to geographic and ecological distribution 
and taxonomy, with particular attention to the little-studied pelagic 
fishes. He completed a revision of the Western Atlantic fishes of 
the genus Eques. Assistant Curator Inger continued his studies of 
Bornean fishes and completed papers for publication on the genera 
Plesiops and Brachygohius. Study of feeding habits of fishes in 
tropical streams, begun last year by Inger, was advanced by the aid 
of Thomas E. Moore and Richard B. Selander, entomologists from 
Illinois Natural History Survey. In connection with this project 
the fishes of a local stream are being investigated. Mrs. Marion 
Grey, Associate, completed her check list of the deep-sea fishes 
found below one thousand fathoms and her revision of the fish 
family Gempylidae. The West Indies Zoological Expedition, under 
direction of Donald Erdman (formerly of the Division of Insects, 
United States National Museum), made an excellent collection of 
specimens from the coasts of Panama, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and 
Haiti that are essential to Curator Woods's studies of fauna of the 
Gulf of Mexico and Panama. Dr. Edward M. Nelson, of Stritch 
School of Medicine, Loyola University, has been studying the 
anatomy of the swim bladder and inner ear of fishes. 


Three crowned cranes and a whalc'headed stork dominate the exhibit in Hall 20 of 
marsh birds of the Upper Nile collected by the Buchen Expedition to East Africa 
(scene is on the Upper Victoria Nile where it broadens into marshy Lake Kyoga). 

In the Division of Insects effective support of all branches of 
work was given by Curator Emeritus William J. Gerhard, whose 
meticulous care of the pamphlet collection has made this a useful 
tool of research for the staff and for visiting entomologists (his 
principal work has been with transfer of the Strecker Collection of 
moths and butterflies to steel-case storage trays). Dr. Charles H. 
Seevers, Research Associate, has largely completed revision of his 
manuscript on the termitophilous staphylinid beetles of the world, 
to which large additions were made by the study of specimens in 
the Bernhauer Collection, purchased in 1951. He contributed about 
fifty days to the integration of this material into our collections 
and by the end of the year had transferred to unit trays more than 
90,000 specimens (about 11,000 species), adding Bernhauer Collec- 
tion pin labels to each specimen and reorganizing the collection in 
new drawers and cabinets. It is expected that there will be about 
2,000 more described species and perhaps 1,000 undescribed ones in 
the remaining part of this collection. It is hoped that the transfer 
may be completed in 1954. Curator Rupert L. Wenzel spent two 
weeks at eastern museums studying types of beetles of the family 
Histeridae. Associate Curator Henry S. Dybas, who was engaged 
mainly in collecting and labeling the minute beetles of the family 
Ptiliidae and preparing specimens for future study, made field trips 


This cranefly (enlarged 5 times) is from the collection of insects in Baltic amber 
acquired by the Museum (note perfect preservation of details of wing venation). 

to the Kankakee dunes area (where a large series of an undescribed 
scarab beetle was obtained), Lake Superior region of Upper Michi- 
gan, Great Smoky Mountains, and Louisiana and Mississippi. 
August Ziemer, Assistant, continued throughout the year his work 
of preparing insect specimens. Miss Lillian A. Ross, Associate, 
continued her studies of local and exotic spiders and, in addition, 
experimented with photographic and exhibition techniques for the 
study of spiderwebs. 

In the Division of Lower Invertebrates there has been a con- 
tinuing flow of specimens of land and fresh-water mollusks from 
South America from various sources. Their identification and study 
by Curator Fritz Haas has led to the description of numerous new 
species. During August and September he made a field trip to the 
Pacific Coast, working especially at the Pacific Biological Station 
at Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, and in the redwood region of 
the northern part of California. 


The major research of the Division of Vertebrate Anatomy again 
centered on the giant panda and related carnivores. The major 
problem during the year was formulation of a system for evaluating 
morphological data that will give an insight into the mechanism 
whereby structures of use to the organism are produced in evolution. 
This involves developing a distinctive approach to comparative 
anatomy, using the giant panda as a test case for new ideas and 
methods. Curator D. D wight Davis continued his work on a report 
on the mammals collected by the Borneo Zoological Expedition of 
1951, the scope of which work was extended to include new material 
received during the year. Study of the placenta and fetal mem- 
branes of the white shrew of Borneo by Curator Davis and Dr. 
Waldemar Meister, Associate, was completed during the year. 
William D. Turnbull, Preparator in the Department of Geology, 
continued his study of adaptive radiation in the masticatory mus- 
culature of mammals, which is of extreme importance to an under- 
standing of the bony framework by means of which the muscles 
operate. Dr. R. M. Strong, Research Associate, continued his 
studies of the anatomy of birds and salamanders. Mrs. Dorothy 
B. Foss, Osteologist, prepared skeletons for the reference collection 
throughout the year, work of interdepartmental value. 

Curator Davis engaged also in natural-history studies in the 
local field and, with the aid of Miss Harriet Smith, of Raymond 
Foundation, and Assistant Brodie, made a connected sequence of 
motion pictures to be used by Raymond Foundation to introduce 
children to the animal life of the Chicago region. He prepared, in 
addition, a 400-foot motion picture (in color) reviewing the biology 
of the lizards known as chameleons, animals that are remarkable 
for their specialized adaptations to feeding and locomotion. The 
specimens for this film were received at the Museum by air-express 
from Madagascar. Miss Margaret G. Bradbury, Artist in the De- 
partment of Zoology, prepared drawings of coral snakes, fish larvae 
and fish skulls, and beetles, all for publication in papers by members 
of the staff of the department. 

Accessions— Zoology 

The purchase of the A. F. Kohlman Collection of insects in Baltic 
amber amounting to 2,500 specimens is a unique event in the history 
of the Museum. The collection, obtained from F. E. Trinklein, 
science teacher at Lutheran High School, Racine, Wisconsin, is the 
second most important collection of these fossils in the New World, 


the largest being in the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard 
University. Among fossil animals, these ancient insects of about 
thirty-five million years ago are unique in the perfection of their 
preservation, which makes it possible to assign them with great 
accuracy in the system of classification and to relate them to modern 
forms. Thus they are highly significant in studies of the evolution 
and of the zoogeography of living insects. The world-wide collection 
of termites, presented by Dr. Alfred E. Emerson, Research Associate 
in the Division of Insects, contains approximately 6,500 specimens 
of 552 species, about 175 of which are represented by type material. 
The importance to research of such a collection, assembled by the 
leading authority on the group, is emphasized by the fact that this 
collection ranks as the fourth or fifth most comprehensive collection 
of termites in the world. A collection of 80 specimens of crocodilians, 
which includes one type and 20 paratypes of a new form discovered 
in Colombia, was presented by Dr. Frederick J. Medem (see page 53). 
Chief Curator Schmidt has long been interested in this group of 
animals and by personal efforts in Central America, South America, 
New Guinea, and the Philippines has built up the Museum's study 
collection. The gift of the Medem material thus makes the Mu- 
seum's collection of crocodiles, caimans, and alligators one of the 
richest in the world. Dr. Harald Sioli, of Belem, Brazil, presented, 
as in previous years, interesting fresh-water mollusks from regions 
never before visited by a collector. The generous gift of mammals, 
birdskins, reptiles, and amphibians from Field Associate Harry 
Hoogstraal, who is stationed in Cairo, Egypt, includes the first 
considerable lot of mammals from Turkey to be received by any 
museum in the United States. 

One of the programs of the Division of Insects most profitable 
in scientific results is informal and intradepartmental. This is the 
program, participated in by the vertebrate zoologists, of collecting 
the ectoparasites of birds, mammals, and reptiles while on ex- 
peditions. The staff of the Division of Mammals has been notably 
co-operative, and as a result of their efforts we have acquired a 
large number of lice, fleas, parasitic batflies, mites, and ticks, many 
of them rare or new. We feel that this co-operation is of particular 
importance, because our field personnel are frequently in a position 
to collect in areas that are relatively inaccessible or that have re- 
strictions on collecting that bar the non-museum naturalist. Fur- 
ther, the entomologist who is interested in the study of these ecto- 
parasites rarely has the training, facilities, or opportunities (unless 
he is associated with a public-health organization) that are necessary 
to collect, preserve, and identify the hosts and parasites. Hence 


the collecting of these parasites by Museum zoologists not only 
helps make known many forms that are of great biological interest 
(frequently of potential medical importance, as well) that would 
otherwise remain unknown for many years but also insures preserva- 
tion of the host animal for future verification of its identity, a 
matter of primary concern in parasitology. 

Exhibits— Zoology 

The original plan of Hall 20 (Habitat Groups of Birds) called for an 
exhibit showing the Upper Nile with the characteristic marsh-birds 
of its vast papyrus-covered lake shores and swamps. This plan at 
last has been realized, largely because of the active interest of 
Walther Buchen, Trustee of the Museum, whose expedition to the 
Lake Kyoga region of East Africa was reported in 1952 (see Annual 
Report, page 30). The Nile marsh-bird exhibit fully realizes the 
function of a museum habitat-group — life-like representation of 
an important natural habitat with an aggregation of animals in 
natural association. Taxidermist Ronald J. Lambert made a film 
showing stages in construction and installation of the exhibit in the 
Museum, which supplements the film-record made in the field by 
Mr. Buchen of collecting the birds and accessories. Thus the Mu- 
seum has for the first time the invaluable record from start to finish 
of one of its most characteristic operations, the making of a habitat 
group. In addition to his work on the Nile group Carl W. Cotton, 
Taxidermist, made progress on panels for the synoptic exhibits. 

The habitat group of sea otters in an Aleutian setting was 
completed early in the year and installed in the Hall of Marine 
Mammals (Hall N). Specimens for this group (a male, female, and 
pup), obtained by Curator Sanborn in 1952 through co-operation of 
the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, were mounted and ac- 
cessories prepared by Taxidermist Frank C. Wonder, with back- 
ground by Douglas E. Tibbitts, Illustrator, and L. L. Pray (formerly 
of the Museum staff). Preparation of the habitat group of Malay 
tapirs by Taxidermist Leon L. Walters was well advanced at the 
end of the year, as was work on artificial vegetation and background 
in the alcove in William V. Kelley Hall (Hall 17, Asiatic Mammals) 
where the tapirs are to be exhibited. Taxidermist Lambert rein- 
stalled four exhibits in Albert W. Harris Hall (Hall 18, Reptiles, 
Amphibians, and Insects), and a fresh mold and color notes of the 
remarkable tuatara were made possible by a fresh specimen of this 
lizard-like reptile of New Zealand that was received from the Chicago 


Zoological Society. Two new models of fishes (dolphin and pointed- 
tailed sunfish) were completed by Taxidermist Wonder for Hall 0. 
An exhibit to illustrate the biology of the marsupials and mono- 
tremes, being prepared by Artist Joseph B. Krstolich and other 
members of the staff, was in an advanced stage at the end of the 
year. This work represents the initiation of a program of greatest 
importance to Hall 15 (Mammals in Systematic Arrangement) — 
preparation of anatomical models, mounted specimens, maps, and 
other materials to show what is interesting and important about the 
animals in the hall and to explain the meaning of their classification. 
This major project, which involves the comparative anatomy of 
mammals, is under the supervision of Curator Davis. 

A family group of rare northern sea otters from the Aleutians is shown in Hall N. 



In order that the Library of the Museum may fulfill its primary 
function of serving members of the Museum staff and other research 
workers adequately, its policy of acquisition has been carefully 
planned so that a comprehensive representation of scientific litera- 
ture in the natural sciences may be provided. During the past year 
many desiderata were obtained (see a selected list on page 97). 

The Museum gratefully acknowledges gifts of books, pamphlets, 
and periodicals presented by individuals and by institutions. We 
are especially grateful to Langdon Pearse of Winnetka, Illinois, for 
his outstanding contribution of books on botany and zoology, to 
the Container Corporation of America for its excellent publication 
World Geo-Graphic Atlas, to the Chicago Historical Society for 
Conchology, or the Natural History of Shells by George Perry, and 
to John Crerar Library for co-operation in contributing to the Mu- 
seum Library the Concilium Bibliographicum covering the natural 
sciences. The extremely comprehensive work. Photomicrographs of 
Meteoric Irons (volumes 8 and 9), so generously contributed by 
Stuart H. Perry, is of inestimable value to the geology division of 
the Library. We are equally indebted to other donors (see page 97) 
for their genuine interest in the Library as shown by their gifts. 

A total of 1,872 volumes was added to the collection by purchase, 
gift, and exchange. The number of volumes withdrawn under re- 
classification totaled 466, including duplicates and books not needed 
by the Library. Some of this material was exchanged for wanted 
items or sold and the proceeds added to the annual book-budget. 
During the year the Library concluded the sale (through competitive 
bids) of duplicate volumes from the collection of ornithological 
literature bequeathed to the Library by the late Boardman Conover, 
Trustee of the Museum and Research Associate in the Division of 
Birds, and added the proceeds to the Conover Game-Bird Fund. 

The re-establishment of the Division of Asiatic Archaeology and 
Ethnology brings with it new demands on the Library's resources. 
Arrangements have been made with sources in Hong Kong for Chi- 
nese publications, Japanese publications are already being received 
by purchase and through exchange, and, if there is further need for 
Asiatic publications, additional sources may have to be discovered. 
The important work of cataloguing the vast collection of Orientalia, 
bequeathed to the Library by the late Dr. Berthold Laufer, has 
been held in abeyance because of the urgency of first completing 
the reclassification of the Library's main collection according to the 
Library of Congress system and because Library of Congress cards 


for books in the Chinese and Japanese languages have not been 
available. The question of standardizing the cataloguing of such 
publications has been referred by the Library of Congress to the 
Division of Cataloguing and Classification of the American Library 
Association, and it is hoped that printed cards will be available by 
the time that the work of classifying this entire collection is under- 
taken. Classification of selected material from the Laufer bequest 
will be performed concurrently, during the coming year, with the 
regular reclassification. Assistance in this difficult task has been 
assured the Library by M. Kenneth Starr, Curator of Asiatic 
Archaeology and Ethnology, who has kindly offered to work in 
close co-operation on this project with the cataloguing department. 

During the year 4,709 volumes were classified and 18,650 cards 
were added to the catalogue, which brings the total number of 
volumes under the Library of Congress classification to 40,993. The 
new card-catalogue is represented by the inclusion of 104,015 cards. 
In addition, monographs during the year were covered by 1,547 
analytics. Inasmuch as reclassification is performed concurrently 
with cataloguing and classification of incoming material, it is esti- 
mated that the program of reclassification may reach completion in 
another five to seven years. 

Work in the preparation of material for binding has gone well. 
The major portion of the collection in the Library consists of serial 
publications, which, in fact, make up the most important part of 
the collections of any research library because they serve to dissemi- 
nate important and timely information rapidly. Much of the data 
in periodical literature is continued in subsequent issues and so 
serials should be kept together in bound volumes. However, before 
such material is sent to a commercial bindery, many mechanical 
steps are necessary. In our Library, where the bulk of material to 
be bound consists of serials in foreign languages, the instruction 
slips accompanying each volume must be carefully prepared. All 
volumes are examined to determine that no pages are missing or 
mutilated. If title pages, tables of contents, and indexes are lacking, 
they are acquired from the publisher, and decision must be made 
whether supplements are to be bound in as paged or at the end of 
the volume. The bindery is furnished with proper instructions for 
panel positions and form of essential information to be printed on 
the spines of the volumes, and, in order to maintain uniformity for 
serial publications, color charts are kept. The fact that not one 
volume in the entire lot prepared for binding during this past year 
has been returned for correction has reduced the cost of binding 
considerably. During the year 1,478 volumes were bound. 


Records in the reading room show the actual use of 2,908 volumes 
as specifically requested by Museum patrons. The many telephone 
calls recieved weekly from outside the building by the reference 
librarian indicate recognition of the Library's research facilities and 
show the importance of this service. Many inquiries, both from 
outside the Museum and from patrons visiting the Library, require 
assiduous research. One hundred and seventy-seven pieces of cor- 
respondence were received in the Library for translation into English. 
The service of interlibrary loans continues to occupy a consider- 
able portion of the Library's program. During the year, 110 vol- 
umes were borrowed and 128 lent. Substitution of microfilm and 
photostats for material difficult to obtain was increased because 
this eliminated reloaning and reborrowing needed material. The 
Museum gratefully acknowledges the courtesy and co-operation of 
all libraries participating in this service. The Library continues to 
be engaged with the Division of Publications in a review of all 
agreements for exchange of publications made before 1947 with other 
institutions or individuals in order to bring the lists of publications 
exchanged up to date. Important new agreements are being estab- 
lished at home and abroad so that timely data covering the develop- 
ments and results of scientific progress in the Museum's areas of 
interest may be provided. 


During the year Douglas E. Tibbitts, Staff Illustrator, worked into 
an entirely new field. With the assistance of Leon L. Pray, who 
had recently retired from the staff of the Museum, he prepared 
backgrounds for the sea-otter exhibit and for the splendid Nile 
marsh-bird group and made a beginning on the background for the 
exhibit of Malay tapirs, which should be completed next year (see 
page 59). In the regular routine of his work he prepared illustrations 
for Curator Donald Collier's report on the Viru Valley of Peru, for 
Curator Bryan Patterson's study on early Cretaceous mammals, 
and for two series of "Museum Stories" by members of Raymond 
Foundation. In addition, of course, were the usual requirements 
for maps, labels, and various other illustrations. Increased demands 
on the Division of Photography were reflected in the total of 21,395 
negatives, prints, enlargements, and lantern slides prepared during 
the year. The growing need of publishers of textbooks and other 
reference works for good illustrative material is being met through 
the facilities of the Museum. 



A total of 21,763 publications of the Museum was sent to other 
scientific institutions during the year in exchange for their publica- 
tions, and fifteen new agreements for exchange were established 
(see page 63). Sales of publications were the highest in the history 
of the Museum, fifteen per cent greater than the previous year. 
The number of publications sold was 49,641. 

The Museum printed during the year twenty-three publications 
in its scientific series, two (one reprint) in its popular series, one in 
its memoirs series, one in its technical series, one annual report, 
and one index to volumes. The total number of copies printed was 
39,515, of which 38,615 copies were printed by letterpress, with a 
total of 1,248 pages of type composition, and 900 copies were printed 
by the Vari-type-offset process, with a total of 230 pages of Vari- 
type composition. Twelve numbers of Chicago Natural History 
Museum Bulletin were printed, averaging 6,050 copies an issue. 
Other work by letterpress included posters, price lists, lecture 
schedules. Museum labels, post cards. Museum stationery, and 
specimen tags, totaling 882,199 impressions. Two series of "Museum 
Stories" and miscellaneous work by the Vari-type-offset process 
totaled 596,384 impressions.

Research projects in which the Museum has been co-operating with 
other scientific institutions include a wide variety of activities. 
Some of them, undertaken in co-operation with museums and uni- 
versities throughout the world, are mentioned in the reports of our 
scientific departments. Also, the ever-increasing importance of the 
Museum's scientific collections is clearly indicated by the increasing 
number of notable scholars who come here from all over the world 
for study (see reports of the scientific departments for names of 
some of them). The imposing lists of visitors to the Department 
of Botany and the Department of Zoology, particularly, emphasize 
the fact that the important collections assembled by the great 
museums of the world are in every sense study-collections and not 
merely material in storage. 

Prince Akihito of Japan was an honored visitor at the Museum 
during his stay in Chicago on his recent tour of the United States. 
Dr. Bruno Molajoli, Director of Fine Arts for the District of Cam- 
pania, Italy, and Mrs. Molajoli spent a day at the Museum in sur- 
veying the exhibits and in conferring with members of the staff. 
Miss Katharine Bartlett visited the Museum to study the methods 
of organizing and classifying books in our Library in preparation 
for a new library at the Museum of Northern Arizona. George B. 
Thompson, Keeper of the Division of Ethnography, Belfast Mu- 
nicipal Museum and Art Gallery, Belfast, Ireland, who was in the 
United States on a Fulbright Fellowship, came to Chicago for the 
sole purpose of studying our museum and exhibition techniques in 
anthropology and spent four months here that were very profitable 
to us as well as to him. Professor H. Stiibel, of Erlangen University 
in Bavaria, Germany, student of non-Chinese peoples of China who 
also was here on a Fulbright Fellowship, spent several months in 
intensive study of our collections and of material in our Library. 
Among others who used the anthropological study-collections were 
John C. Ewers, United States National Museum; Dr. Jorge Lines, 
University of Costa Rica; Donald Marshall, Peabody Museum; 
and Dr. George K. Newmann, Indiana University. 

Botanists from other institutions who visited the Museum for 
consultation or study include Professor J. Lanjouw, Utrecht, Nether- 
lands; Dr. Karl Rechinger, Natural History Museum, Vienna; Dr.

Senckenberg Museum in Frankfort-am-Main and of Instituto 
Tropical de Investigaciones Cientificas in San Salvador, spent two 
months in our Museum under the supervision of D. D wight Davis, 
Curator of Vertebrate Anatomy, preparing cleared specimens of 
lizards for her study of the mechanics of locomotion. 

Several members of our scientific staff devote a portion of their 
time to lecturing and to supervising the studies of graduate or 
undergraduate students who carry on special studies at the Museum. 
George I. Quimby, Curator of Exhibits in Anthropology, gave a 
seminar on Eskimo ethnology and prehistory at the Museum for 
the University of Chicago during the winter quarter and, with 
Donald Collier, Curator of South American Archaeology and Eth- 
nology, gave a course on the ethnology of North and South America 
at the University of Chicago during the spring quarter. Dr. Theodor 
Just, Chief Curator of Botany, conducted a seminar at the Univer- 
sity of Notre Dame; Dr. Karl P. Schmidt, Chief Curator of Zoology, 
gave four lectures at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel; Robert 
F. Inger, Assistant Curator of Fishes, lectured at the University of 
Chicago; and Curator Davis gave a series of four lectures at Cali- 
fornia Institute of Technology. 


The quite inoffensive common American tarantula tliat is pictured above lives so 
very well in captivity that it lends itself admirably to studies of spider behavior. 

Individual students from De Paul University, University of 
Chicago, Chicago Teachers College, National College of Education, 
North Central College, Northwestern University, Roosevelt College, 
Valparaiso University, and Wheaton College as well as from more 
distant colleges and universities used the Museum as a source of 
information, and various classes (for example, the large group from 
McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario) visited the scientific 
departments and inspected the laboratories, workrooms, and her- 
baria. Art schools, among them Academy of Applied Arts, Chicago 
Academy of Fine Arts, Institute of Design, and School of the Art 
Institute of Chicago, use the Museum regularly for supervised study 
and class work, and in the summer the Museum presents a special 
showing in Stanley Field Hall of work by students from the School 
of the Art Institute. 

For its co-operation in a study-work-and-earn plan for college 
students, our Museum was awarded a certificate of recognition by 
Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio. Students at Antioch College 
divide their school year between periods of formal classroom work 
on the campus and on-the-job training in factories, business offices, 
and institutions all over the country. The Museum has been par- 
ticipating in this program since 1946 and, under this co-operative 
plan, has given temporary employment to seventy-two students 
during the past eight years. Fourteen young men and women from 
Antioch College were employed by the Museum in 1953 in its 
scientific departments and Library. 



In order to be abreast of scientific research in allied institutions it 
is essential that members of our scientific staff keep closely in touch 
with the scientific societies working in their fields of interest. Our 
Museum is always well represented at the annual meetings of the 
societies, and our staff members carry their full share of the duties 
and responsibilities of membership. 

Dr. Paul S. Martin, Chief Curator of Anthropology, Donald 
Collier, Curator of South American Archaeology and Ethnology, 
and Miss Elaine Bluhm, Assistant in Archaeology, attended the 
annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association in 
Tucson, Arizona, where Chief Curator Martin and Curator Collier 
presented papers. Dr. John B. Rinaldo, Assistant Curator of 
Archaeology, George I. Quimby, Curator of Exhibits, Curator 
Collier, and Assistant Bluhm attended concurrent meetings in 
Urbana, Illinois, of the Society for American Archaeology (of which 
Curator Quimby was elected first vice-president) and the Central 
States Anthropological Society (of which Curator Collier was elected 
president). Chief Curator Martin and Assistant Curator Rinaldo 
attended the Pecos Conference on Southwestern archaeology at 
the Museum of Northern Arizona at Flagstaff. 

Dr. Theodor Just, Chief Curator of Botany, presided at a sym- 
posium on "Taxonomy, Ecology, and Stratigraphy of Tertiary 
Angiosperms" sponsored by the Paleobotanical and the Systematic 
sections of the Botanical Society of America and co-sponsored by 
the American Society of Plant Taxonomists and the Society for the 
Study of Evolution at the annual meetings of the American Institute 
of Biological Sciences in Madison, Wisconsin (he was elected vice- 
president for 1954 of the Society for the Study of Evolution). 
He attended meetings of the Divisional Committee of Biological 
Sciences of the National Science Foundation in Washington and 
served as chairman of the Committee on Paleobotany of the Division 
of Earth Sciences of the National Research Council, as chairman 
of the Committee on Generic Synopses appointed by the American 
Society of Plant Taxonomists, and as a member of the Committee 
on Guidance appointed by the Botanical Society of America. Dr.

of the American Institute of Biological Sciences. Dr. Earl E. 
Sherff, Research Associate in Systematic Botany, presided as chair- 
man of the Linnaean Symposium, sponsored by the American 


Society of Plant Taxonomists and Systematic Section of the Bo- 
tanical Society of America as part of the meetings of the American 
Institute of Biological Sciences. 

Dr. Sharat K. Roy, Chief Curator of Geology, Bryan Patterson, 
Curator of Fossil Mammals, and Robert K. Wyant, Curator of 
Economic Geology, attended the annual meetings in Boston of the 
American Association for the Advancement of Science, where 
Curator Patterson read a paper on the history of non-hominid 
primates in the Old World and where Chief Curator Roy and Curator 
Wyant, in a symposium on origin of meteorites, presented a paper 
(illustrated by color-slides) on the composition, structure, and 
probable origin of chondrules in stony meteorites. The three men 
also attended the meetings in Toronto of the Geological Society of 
America, and Curator Patterson and Curator Wyant attended the 
concurrent meetings of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. 
Curator Patterson, with Orville L. Gilpin, Chief Preparator of 
Fossils, Preparator William D. Turnbull, and Assistant Priscilla F. 
Turnbull, took part in a field conference of the Society of Vertebrate 
Paleontology in Uinta Basin, Utah. Eugene S. Richardson, Jr., 
Curator of Fossil Invertebrates, attended the meetings of the 
North Central Branch of the Entomological Society of America in 
St. Louis, of the Pennsylvania Academy of Science in Annville, 
and of the Illinois Academy of Science in Macomb and presented 
technical papers at each meeting. 

Dr. Karl P. Schmidt, Chief Curator of Zoology, represented the 
Museum and the National Research Council at the Fourteenth 
International Congress in Copenhagen in August, where he served 
as chairman of the section on zoological nomenclature. Mrs. 
Marion Grey, Associate in the Division of Fishes, who had been 
invited to attend the Congress to take part in a colloquium on 
problems of the deep sea, spoke on fishes found below two thousand 
meters. In November Dr. Austin L. Rand, Curator of Birds, 
represented the Museum at the Eighth Pacific Science Congress in

Insects, attended the meetings in Philadelphia of the Eastern Branch 
of the Society. Dr. Fritz Haas, Curator of Lower Invertebrates, 
represented the Museum at the meetings in Lawrence, Kansas, of 
the American Malacological Union. 

Miss Miriam Wood, Chief of the James Nelson and Anna Louise 
Raymond Foundation, attended the meetings in Buffalo of the 
American Association of Museums and presented before the Inter- 
national Relations Section a report on the international seminar on 
the role of museums in education that was sponsored by UNESCO 
in 1952 (Miss Wood was chairman of the delegation representing 
the United States in the seminar). Miss Wood and Miss Harriet 
Smith, Guide-Lecturer of Raymond Foundation, attended meetings 
in Chicago of the Educational Film Library Association and the 
National Audio- Visual Association. As usual, the meetings in Chi- 
cago of the various professional library associations were attended 
by Mrs. Meta P. Howell, Librarian, and members of the staff of 
the Library. 

Chief Curator Just continued as editor of Lloydia (quarterly 
journal of biological science published by Lloyd Library and Mu- 
seum, Cincinnati), as editor of Paleohotanical Report (published by 
the Division of Earth Sciences of the National Research Council), 
and as member of the editorial board of American Journal of Botany 
(official publication of the Botanical Society of America). Dr. 
Rainer Zangerl, Curator of Fossil Reptiles, continued as foreign- 
news editor and Assistant Turnbull as a regional editor of the 
Society of Vertebrate Paleontology News Bulletin. Chief Curator 
Schmidt continued as a section editor of Biological Abstracts (pub- 
lished under the auspices of the Union of American Biological 
Societies) and as a consulting editor for American Midland Naturalist 
(published by the University of Notre Dame).

The Division of Public Relations this year concentrated its efforts 
upon consolidating the program of innovations made in the pre- 
ceding year, primarily in television, and upon continuing in full 
measure the dissemination of information in all the other ways used 
in the past. Throughout the year spot announcements about the 
Museum continued to appear daily in the intervals between many 
major programs on all four Chicago television stations: WBBM-TV 
(Channel 2, Columbia Broadcasting System), WNBQ (Channel 5, 
National Broadcasting Company), WBKB (Channel 7, American 
Broadcasting Company- Paramount Theaters, Inc.), and WGN-TV 
(Channel 9, Chicago Tribune-Dumont Television Network). Re- 
newed appreciation is given to the officials and technical staffs of 
each of these organizations for their continued contribution of air- 
time free of charge and for their generous co-operation with the 
Museum staff in preparation of material. It is estimated that, at 
commercial television-advertising rates, the time devoted to the 
Museum would have reached a cumulative total of around $100,000 
for the year. Members of the Museum staff appeared as guests on 
a number of full-length television programs to present the stories of 
their expeditions and other activities or, as scientific authorities, to 
answer questions and talk on subjects within the scope of the 
Museum's fields of interest. 

Daily newspapers in Chicago and throughout the country and 
magazines continued to devote quantities of space to Museum news, 
features, and photographs, and radio stations and networks matched 
the air-time contributions of the television organizations. For this, 
grateful acknowledgment is made to Chicago Tribune, Chicago Daily 
News, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago American, United Press Asso- 
ciation, International News Service, International News Photos, 
Associated Press, Science Service, City News Bureau of Chicago, 
Mutual Broadcasting System, American Broadcasting Company, 
National Broadcasting Company, and Columbia Broadcasting Sys- 
tem and to radio stations WGN, WBBM, WMAQ, WLS, WENR, 

Besides using stories and photographs from the more than four 
hundred publicity releases prepared by the Division of Public Rela- 
tions, both press and radio-television outlets used much of the 
material printed in the Museum Bulletin, which thus fulfilled its 
secondary function as an additional source of general publicity as 


well as its primary purpose of maintaining monthly contact between 
the Museum and its thousands of Members. Placards advertising 
the free lectures for adults provided by the Edward E. Ayer Fund 
and the motion pictures for children presented by Raymond Founda- 
tion were displayed on station platforms and in passenger coaches 
through the continued courtesy of Chicago Transit Authority, Chi- 
cago Aurora and Elgin Railroad, Illinois Central System, and Chicago 
and North Western Railway. The Museum takes this opportunity 
to thank the transportation organizations for their important and 
generous assistance in publicizing its free educational programs. 

This reproduction of a branch of camphor (Cinnamomum camphora) in the fruiting 
stage was added to the exhibits in Martin A. and Carrie Ryerson Hall (Hall 29). 



Sales in the The Book Shop of the Museum totaled more than 
$74,000, over $5,000 more than total sales in 1952. The Book Shop 
was established in 1938, and it is interesting to note that each 
succeeding year, with the exception of 1940 and 1948, has brought 
an increase in sales. The endowment fund created from proceeds 
amounted to slightly over $120,000 at the end of the year. The 
number of sales by mail continued to be large, although the dollar- 
amount was small in relation to number of sales. Shipments were 
made to forty-six states and territories and to a number of foreign 
destinations. The continuing increase in our mail-order business 
is another indication of the ever-widening influence of the Museum 
in its educational work. 


Again the number of people served in the cafeteria and lunchroom 
showed an increase, the total being 324,461 in comparison with the 
total of 321,248 for last year. Gross receipts amounted to almost 
$137,000, an increase of about $5,000 over the year before. In 
order that visitors may obtain refreshment at hours when the 
cafeteria and lunchroom are not open, automatic vending-machines 
for Coca-Cola were installed in a ground-floor corridor. As in pre- 
vious years, thousands of school children who brought their lunches 
were accommodated in the lunchroom and picnic room. 


Of major importance is the conversion of Hall H on the ground 
floor, which formerly housed our Philippine ethnological collections, 
into a convenient and well-equipped storage room for our collec- 
tions from Polynesia, Melanesia, Micronesia, Africa, and Madagascar. 
Reinstallation of the exhibits from Melanesia, Micronesia, and Poly- 
nesia will retire to the study-collections a great deal of material 
that in the past has been on display. This will result in more 
attractive exhibits and will improve the study-collections by making 
more of our unique and interesting material available for detailed 
study. The vacated hall is being equipped with steel shelving, 
adequate lighting, and hoisting equipment. Eventually all of the 
specimens from the South Seas will be housed in this single storage- 
room, adjacent to the halls where related material is exhibited. A

220-volt power line has been run into the room to provide power 
for the exhaust fan that is to be installed in the poison room reserved 
for materials susceptible to insect damage. Construction work was 
more than half completed at the end of the year. 

Revamping was completed of two areas on the ground floor 
where the floors were out of alignment because of settling of the 
sand fill during a period of more than thirty-five years. The floors 
were brought back to their proper levels by the "mud- jacking" 
process, in which a wet mixture of earth and cement is forced under 
pressure through holes drilled in the floors. In one place a settlement 
of seven inches was completely restored. New plastering of walls 
was required in some instances, and all the rooms were entirely 
redecorated. Subsequently, the publications office, formerly in this 
area, was moved to the south end of the building close to the pub- 
lications storage-vault, the print shop, and the shipping room so 
that a great deal of transportation is now unnecessary. The Audi- 


tor's office was moved into the vacated space, resulting in a consoli- 
dation of the business offices in the area nearest the offices of the 
Director and Registrar. The office of Raymond Foundation was 
moved from the second to the first floor into the office formerly 
occupied by the Auditor. This move also results in economy of 
time by having the guide-lecturers in the office closest to the north 
entrance of the Museum. The Division of Public Relations returned 
to its former office after the changes were completed. 

Cleaning and painting of the building are constant processes. 
Stanley Field Hall and the adjacent vistas were completely redone. 
This undertaking was of such magnitude and required such special 
scaffolding that the work was done by contract. In addition, the 
Meeting Room, Hall N, the lobby of James Simpson Theatre, and 
fourteen other rooms were repainted. Walls were washed in the 
cafeteria and five of the exhibition halls. A new carpet was installed 
in the aisles of the Lecture Hall after the floor had been refinished. 
Reupholstering of seats in the Theatre, which has been under way 
for some years, was completed. 

Special attention was given to the outside of the building through- 
out the period of favorable weather. All of the exterior marble 
was sprayed with silicone waterproofing in the hope of preventing 
the gradual erosion of the surface. The blacktop on the terrace 
levels at both the north and south entrances received an additional 
application of liquid waterproofing, and the steps approaching both 
entrances were tuckpointed where necessary. Window sash was 
repaired or replaced outside of Halls 25, 26, 27, 28, and 36. All 
window frames and sash were repaired on the outside, and the 
outside freight-elevator was completely repainted. 

During the summer shutdown all boilers were thoroughly cleaned 
and tubes turbined. Silica jell was placed in the boiler drums and 
all manhole plates were tightened to prevent the entrance of any 
moisture that would cause corrosion during the shutdown period. 
The entire heating plant was rechecked, cleaned, repaired where 
necessary, painted to prevent corrosion, and put in first-class con- 
dition. A new coal lorry was installed, and a half key removed 
from each grate-bar to allow for the passage of more air through 
the fires. Thermostatic traps were substituted for worn and obsolete 
equipment on radiators and coils, thereby increasing the efficiency 
of the heating plant. The usual plumbing maintenance was carried 
on throughout the year, and new hot-water lines were run in to 
many locations where needed. Two large exhaust fans were mounted 
at the end of the main skylight at the south end of the building to 
remove the hot air during the summer months, thus lowering the 


temperature of the entire fourth floor. The program of installing 
new panel-boards in the interest of both efficiency and safety was 
continued. In addition to its own needs, the Museum, under con- 
tract, furnished almost 25,000,000 pounds of steam to Shedd 
Aquarium, the Administration Building of the Chicago Park 
District, and Soldier Field. 

The Divisions of Maintenance and Engineering assisted in the 
installation and reinstallation of exhibits in many of our exhibition 
halls. Halls 6 and 7, housing American Indian collections, and 
Hall 24 (George T. and Frances Gaylord Smith Hall), housing 
Chinese exhibits, were greatly improved by case alterations, re- 
arrangement, and new lighting. The large built-in case in Hall 20 
and a smaller case in Hall N were made ready to receive the exhibits 
prepared by the Department of Zoology (see page 59) and sub- 
sequently were glazed and poisoned. A multiplicity of requisitions 
for the manufacture, alteration, or moving of special equipment, for 
special lighting, and for special-exhibit cases was handled expedi- 
tiously throughout the year. The splendid appearance of the build- 
ing, its adequate lighting, and the constant improvements of its 
working facilities bear testimony to the efficiency of the Engineering 
and Maintenance staff.
