This journal contains field notes documenting Richard Blackwelder's research in Montserrat, Antigua, and Saint Kitts (Redonda was also visited, but no collecting occurred there) from 13 July to 27 October 1936 to study insects, especially beetles. Staphylinidae is one common family of beetle collected. This journal contains 120 pages. Blackwelder provides descriptions of flora and fauna of his surrounding environment. He also includes elevations, weather information, and other observations. Abundance of insect genera is noted when applicable. Also, description on how specimens were obtained (ex. in cow dung; rotten fruit) is included. Maps for Montserrat, Antigua, and Saint Kitts are included and are annotated to show locations of stations and route taken (copies of maps on tracing paper inserted in the back). Stations visited include station 262-314 (262-271, Montserrat; 272-295, Antigua; 297-314, Saint Kitts). Examples of localities visited on these islands include Woodlands (Montserrat), Hodge Point (currently Beggars Point) (Antigua), and Canyon Village (Saint Kitts).General Index on pages 106-118 and Index to Insects on pages 118-120.
