This report is part of a collection of the 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. In 1925, Schmitt was awarded the Smithsonian's Walter Rathbone Bacon Traveling Scholarship "for the study of the fauna of countries other than the United States." The scholarship enabled him to collect marine invertebrates along the east coast of South America from August to December, 1925, and on the west coast from August 1926 to May 1927. From August 1925 to February 1926, he collected along eastern South America from Brazil south of Buenos Aires. Locations included sites in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, and Uruguay. He also participated in field work at Tortugas during the summers of 1930, 1931, and 1932.This folder contains the Annual Report of the Tortugas Laboratory, at the time directed by William Harding Longley, issued by the Carnegie Institution of Washington on December 9, 1932.
