A. Remington (Arthur Remington) Kellogg, 1892-1969, is on a field trip to Rampart Cave, Mohave County, Arizona. Kellogg (with hat) and two young men are standing on the side of a rocky hill. The photographer Watson M. Perrygo accompanied Kellogg to excavate sloth fossils as well as skeletal remains of several species of mammals, birds, lizards, and snakes. Kellogg was the first Director of the United States National Museum, now the National Museum of Natural History, from 1948-1962. Prior to becoming director, Kellogg served in the Division of Mammals, beginning in 1928 as assistant curator, and becoming curator in 1941.
