True, Frederick W. (Frederick William), 1858-1914
Correspondence, notes, report, document the collecting and study of cetacean specimens, mostly for areas in Maryland. The material in this collection division is arranged alphabetically by either correspondent or scientific name of specimen. There appears to be no specific rule which determines where a particular item is filed, and correspondence with individuals is often filed by scientific name. This collection division includes material on the collection and description of specimens, professional correspondence on fossil whales, and information on collecting localities. Includes report on fossils found in Miocene formation in Maryland; Patagonian beds; and tidal data for Baltimore and Chesapeake Beach, Maryland for 1905.
