Summary:

The origin of the National Systematics Laboratory can be traced back to August 15, 1942, when Samuel F. Hildebrand moved into the Division of Fishes of the National Museum of Natural History to continue his ichthyological research for the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Fisheries; this followed the merger of the Bureau of Fisheries fish collection with that of the United States National Museum. The Laboratory, then the National Center for Systematics, was transferred from the Department of the Interior to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 1970 and renamed the National Systematics Laboratory. The Laboratory is administered by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Fisheries Service, but also is responsible to the National Marine Fisheries Service Research Council and all of the regional Fisheries Science Centers. The materials in this accession were compiled mainly during the tenure of Bruce B. Collette as Director of the Laboratory. Materials include correspondence, recommendations, manuscripts, articles, grant applications and proposals, research, and specimen loans.
