Notes:

Typewritten sheets bound with string between covers.

Maps and sketches throughout.

Items pasted or pressed into volume include organic material, newspaper clippings and loose notes.

Daily journal kept by Archbold during the 1st Expedition to New Guinea; possibly a combination of original typewritten entries and those transcribed from handwritten pages. Entries cover his journey to Papua from New York, expedition activities including the hiring of laborers, hunting, trapping and photography, and general description of the environment and people. Also includes pages of temperature readings and a catalog of expedition photographs and negatives.

Richard Archbold was a sponsor of scientific study, mountaineer, aviator and research associate at the American Museum of Natural History from 1931. He established Archbold Expeditions (formerly Biological Explorations) which sponsored field work, a collection and curatorial staff at the American Museum of Natural History. He also founded the Archbold Biological Station in Florida in 1941 as a center for scientific research and ecological study. One of the first to recognize the value of air transport in expeditionary work, Archbold led three of the New Guinea Expeditions, the third of which culminated in the seaplane Guba II's historic transcontinental flight.

Cataloged through a 2015 Leon Levy Foundation Archives grant.
