This folder appears to primarily contain research notes and possibly field notes. The notes are difficult to read due to handwriting; they appear to contain little or no identifying information as to date, locality, and creator. An envelope in the folder is addressed to W.H. Longley in Hawaii and there appears to be a letter written by Longley to his wife from Pago Pago; both of these items are dated 1920. It is unknown whether Longley is the creator of other materials in the folder. Notes that may have been created in the field appear to be measurements, color notes, a log of pictures, and data from timed behavior trials. Other notes in the folder list research questions, conclusions, and lists of research activities to complete.
