Documents are from around 1909 and contain information on localities including but not limited to Java, Indonesia. Notes are loose and in no discernible order. Included are bird and mammal specimen lists and field notes, many of which do not contain dates or localities. These notes may contain species names, sex, field numbers, USNM numbers, and additional information on observed behavior or physicality. Some sketches and manuscripts are present, as well as a collection of bird feathers.
