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. This field book includes notes taken during an expedition to West Greenland. The notes are written on loose pages in a fabric cover, and they record the collection of birds' stomachs as well as dredge and haul work, with plankton collection.
