This field book includes field notes documenting specimens collected in the Indian Ocean. The notes focus on corals, some of which were sent to the Smithsonian Oceanographic Sorting Center. This may have been part of the International Indian Ocean Expedition. The notes show a list of procedures, then record diary notes on corals collection at various field stations. The notes are dated from July 21 to September 4, 1964. The last notes record entries that were left out mistakenly, and they end with an unfinished sentence. Some additional notes are inserted.
