Abstract

This field book is part of a collection of field notes by Robert (Bob) A. Bartlett (1875-1946). Bartlett was born in Brigus, Newfoundland. He spent much of his career at sea in the Arctic, taking part in and later leading expeditions in the region. These field notes concern an expedition from July 25 to September 4, 1933 to Greenland through the Foxe Basin. The field notes show dredge work, plankton collection, fish observation, and the study of birds' stomachs.
