The holidays are just around the corner, so we wanted to take the time here at the Archives to say warmest wishes to you! To celebrate the season, here is a card to share with friends or family, featuring a photo of some very cute penguins in Antarctica found in the Archives’ collections in the field books of former Curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the National Museum of Natural History, Waldo LaSalle Schmitt (1887-1977). Some of Schmitt’s photos were recently added to the Flickr Commons by the Smithsonian’s Field Book Project team. The Field Book Project, as you’ll remember is a joint initiative between the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the Archives to create one online location for scholars and others to visit when searching for field books and other field research materials.
Simply click here, or on the image below, to download a PDF file of the card, easily printed at home on letter-sized paper.
And again, happy researching and Happy Holidays to you and yours from all of us here at the Archives!
