The photograph album documents Alexander Wetmore's work in South America for the U.S. Department Agriculture, Bureau of Biological Survey, 1920-1921.

Locations include vicinity of Mendoza, Buenos Aires and Pampa in Argentina, and Montevideo, Uruguay. Includes photographs of Wetmore, James Lee Peters, and Wilfrid B. Alexander.
