  • Under the Walter Rathbone Bacon Traveling Scholarship, established by Virginia Purdy Bacon in order to promote the fauna of regions outside of the United States, Alan Mozley conducted a study of the land and fresh-water molluscan fauna of Siberia, from the spring of 1932 through 1934. Headquarters for this expedition were in Tomsk, Siberia. During the expedition, trips were made to the mouth of the River Ket and the Akhmolinsk Steppe. Mozley, of the Johns Hopkins Department of Zoology, reported the cordial cooperation of local authorities and scientific institutions. While not in field season, during the winter, Mozley was given facilities at the University of Edinburgh to work on his collections.
