This file, probably started by Robert Ridgway, consists mostly of measurements of birds, locality data, and general notes. This file still receives periodic additions from staff members of the Division. This collection has little, if any, correspondence. NOTE: These papers are located in the National Museum of Natural History, Division of Birds.
