Finding Aids to Personal Papers and Special Collections in the Smithsonian Institution Archives
Record Unit 7444
Photographs of Reptiles and Amphibians, 1922-1930, 1945 and undated
This collection was probably begun by Remington Kellogg of the United States National Museum, for whom see Record Unit 7170. Though Kellogg was a mammalogist, he also wrote popular illustrated articles in many aspects of zoology, including herpetology.
The collection contains photographic images of reptiles, chiefly snakes, crocodiles, horned toads, Komodo dragons, and iguanas, of specimens both in the wild and on museum display. The photographs were to illustrate popular articles on reptiles and some are in the form of photographs clipped from newspapers and mounted on board. Most were not created by Smithsonian personnel. Most are unlabelled, while a few have copyright registration numbers assigned by the Library of Congress.
