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 an expedition to Frobisher Bay in 1942. The notes record specimens collections, including some that were done by E. C. Rigby for the Smithsonian Institution. The notes, on loose leaves in a fabric folder, are dated from July 27 to July 29, 1942.
