Finding Aids to Official Records of the Smithsonian Institution Archives

Curatorial Correspondence and Memoranda, 1966-1968
This accession consists of the records of Ian G. Macintyre, Curator Emeritus, who specializes in carbonate sedimentology with a multidisciplinary interest in post-glacial history of coral reefs, submarine lithification, skeletal mineralogy of reef organisms, bioerosion, and Holocene sea-level history in the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific. The records document Macintyre's participation in rock-dredging and bottom-sampling work near the shelf break of the Atlantic continental margin off the southeastern United States, between Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The work was performed aboard the research vessel Eastward of the Duke University Marine Laboratory, where Macintyre was a research scientist before coming to the Smithsonian Institution. Materials include dredge data printouts and drawings.
