Notes:

Daily diary, front matter preprinted with information such as a calendar, telegraph and postal instructions and weights and measures. Laid in items include a railway ticket, typewritten list of partial items collected, a folded envelope and drafts of telegrams.

Only date ranges February 27 to July 6 and August 19 to October 11 have been filled in. All other dates are blank.

The Australian leg of the Whitney South Sea Expedition began in 1939 and ended in the latter half of 1940. This daily diary format journal represents his notes on weather, habitat, as well as the collection and observation of specimens (primarily birds, some mammals) in 1940. Notes on front and back endpapers provide tire pressure and mileage information for the trip. Locations in northern Australia cited include the Bunya Mountains camp and Birdsville. Macmillan led the Whitney South Sea Expedition from 1935 to 1940 and his wife Joy accompanied him on the expedition, acting as assistant.

Lindsay Macmillan was trained by A.J. Marshall, a well-known Australian ornithologist. Before joining the expedition, Macmillan was already well-versed in skinning and collecting bird specimens. He left the Whitney expedition to join the Australian military during World War II.

Cataloged through a 2015 Leon Levy Foundation Archives grant.
