Notes

Photograph album documents when Alexander Wetmore traveled to Panama in 1953 to visit the Canal Zone Biological Area and the Museo Nacional and collect bird specimens in Soná, Veraguas. This was the year Wetmore left the position of Secretary and became a Research Associate of the Smithsonian. He was assisted by Watson M. Perrygo. Photographs include numbers, date, and caption with description and location. Images are primarily colleagues, sites and events observed during visit; and vistas of the countryside in which he collected; and Perrygo working on specimens. Locations include the vicinity of Chiriqui and Barro Colorado. Includes photographs of Wetmore, Watson M. Perrygo, James Zetek, and Karl P. Curtis.
