Descriptive Entry

The administration of the United States National Museum required curators to submit regular reports on the activities of the departments, divisions, and sections. Prior to about 1900 these reports were often made monthly and semiannually as well as annually. The reports were traditionally submitted to the Director of the National Museum to be used in preparing the published Annual Report of the United States National Museum. The individual reports, however, were not reproduced in their entirety in the published Annual Report and generally contain more information than is to be found in the published version.

Reports were stored by the Office of Correspondence and Reports (later known as the Office of Correspondence and Documents), and then by the Office of the Registrar.

Includes reports submitted to the Director of the United States National Museum by curators and administrators.

FY 1948 - In 1947 a major reorganization of the U. S. National Museum took place. The Department of Biology was split into Departments of Zoology and Botany. All the old Divisions of Biology, with the exception of Plants were placed under the new Department of Zoology. The new Department of Botany (the old Division of Plants) administered the new Divisions of Phanerogams, Grasses, and Cryptogams.

FY 1958 - During FY 1958 the organizational structure of the U. S. National Museum underwent a major revision. The U. S. National Museum was divided into two administrative subdivisions: the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of History and Technology. The new Museum of Natural History included the Departments of Anthropology, Zoology, Botany, and Geology, all of which retained their old administrative structure. The Museum of History and Technology consisted of the Departments of Science and Technology (with Divisions of Physical Sciences, Mechanical and Civil Engineering, Transportation, Agriculture and Wood Products, Electricity, and Medical Sciences); Arts and Manufactures (with Divisions of Textiles, Ceramics and Glass, Graphic Arts, and Industrial Cooperation); Civil History (with Divisions of Political History, Cultural History, Philately and Postal History and Numismatics); and Armed Forces History (with Divisions of Military History and Naval History).

FY 1964 - During FY 1964 major changes were made in the administrative organization of the Museum of Natural History. The Division of Insects was abolished as part of the Department of Zoology, and a new Department of Entomology was established with Divisions of Neuropteroids, Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, and Myriapoda and Arachnida. The Department of Geology was abolished and in its place were created the Departments of Paleobiology and Mineral Sciences. The Department of Paleobiology included the Divisions of Invertebrate Paleontology, Vertebrate Paleontology, and Paleobotany. The Department of Mineral Sciences contained Divisions of Mineralogy and Meteorites (the equivalents of the old Division of Mineralogy and Petrology).
