Abstract
William and Lucile Mann travel with the National Geographic Society-Smithsonian Institution Expedition to the Dutch East Indies in 1937. William Mann collects a birds, animals and reptiles, a list and quantity of which is recorded at the end of the diary. While traveling, they meet with local officials, visit pertinent local institutions (zoos, etc). The diary is a typed account kept by Lucile Mann, arranged by date, and provides location changes; descriptions of daily activities; explanations of collecting efforts; issues with securing, caring for, and transporting them; and observations. Some specimens were collected, others purchased from collectors or governments. Lucile includes notes of interest handwritten on the backside of the typed pages. These include short stories, word definitions, and additional descriptions of events.
