This is the eighth of sixteen volumes that document the life and work of William Henry Holmes, compiled during 1931 or 1932. Holmes combined text and supporting documents including original drawings, watercolors, photographs, correspondence, official documents, news clippings, and memorabilia. The volume covers 1897 to 1902, and is divided into five sections. | The first section describes work in Cuba and Jamaica in 1900 with Smithsonian Institution Secretary Samuel P. Langley and J. W. Powell, Director of the Geological Survey and of the Bureau of American Ethnology. Langley was recording field observations of a buzzard, locally known as the John Crow, for the purposes of his work on “flying machines”. Holmes includes notes and measurements relating to this work. He references photographs of the birds, not included in the volume. Section two covers his trip to study ethnology and anthropology in California with W. J. McGee in 1898. Section three describes a visit to Mexico with Major Clarence E. Dutton and G. K. Gilbert in 1899 to make geological and archaeological observations. Section four covers the organization of the Division of Physical Anthropology. Section five covers Holmes archaeological work.

William Henry Holmes (1846-1933) was an anthropologist, archaeologist, artist, and geologist, who spent much of his career affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution. He studied art under Theodore Kauffman, and went on to work as a scientific illustrator with Smithsonian staff. In 1872, he was appointed artist-topographer to the United States survey of the territories under Ferdinand V. Hayden, and in 1874 was appointed assistant geologist. He went on to work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE), until returning to the Smithsonian Institution, United States National Museum (USNM). Holmes eventually became head curator of the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Anthropology and Director of the National Gallery of Art.
