Notes

  • When Wetmore made his trips to Panama, he always requested Ratibor Hartmann to be his assistant. Ratibor Hartmann was the eldest son of Alois Hartmann, who had helped on medical and naturalists' expeditions because of his knowledge of the area and Panamanian archeology to explore the jungles of the Western Highlands of Chiriquí. Ratibor took over from his father leading expeditions from the Gorgas Memorial Institute, where he worked, and several United States academic institutions in the field. Ratibor and his brother Gedón (Armagedón) Hartmann accompanied Wetmore on many of his expeditions.
  • The image was taken during a scientific expedition to Panama by sixth Smithsonian Secretary (1944-1952) and ornithologist Alexander Wetmore.
