Notes:

Alexander Wetmore went to the western United States in 1932 to conduct field research and collect natural history specimens, particularly in Arizona. He also visited colleagues in California. Some specimens such as the rough-legged hawks were collected alive, and sent to the National Zoological Park. Includes correspondence, itemized expense report (including destinations), notes, expense records, permits, and memorabilia. Correspondence documents communications with state officials including Game Wardens, colleagues, and the Smithsonian. Subject matter includes specimens collected and limits to types allowed; on-going business of the Smithsonian; possible expedition with Bartsch and Stejneger to lesser Antilles to study fish; and possible "semi-scientific" yacht cruise funded and organized by Mr. Albert D. Willard; and applications for permits to State Game commissions (in some cases bird names are listed). Correspondence with John Enos Graf and others. Collecting sites include Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
