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 are from a trip to Northeast Greenland. The expedition was conducted in cooperation with the New York Zoological Society and the Smithsonian Institution. (On this trip was established the Morrissey's farthest north for the East Coast, at 77° 15′.) The field notes are dated from July 6 to August 31, 1939, and are mainly related to bird specimens’ collections, especially birds' stomachs.
