Charles Schuchert was appointed Assistant Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology at the United States National Museum in 1894 and remained there for ten years. During this time, he participated in Robert Peary's 1897 expedition to Greenland and represented the United States government at the International Geological Congress in Vienna in 1903.
