Notes

This field book is the typed transcript, in 48 leaves, of an original field book that is part of a collection of Waldo L. Schmitt papers. Schmitt was a carcinologist. During the summers of 1924 and 1925, Schmitt was at the Carnegie Institution's Marine Laboratory at Tortugas, Florida, surveying the crustacean fauna of the area, identifying crustaceans found in the stomachs of fishes, and taking underwater photographs. The transcript reproduces the original, which consisted of unbound pages 47 to 118 of a notebook, with field notes dated from July 15 to August 26, 1924. It also included drawings of specimens, which are reproduced in pencil in the transcript.
