We're excited to announce our latest Flickr set, images from the field work of Watson Perrygo in Haiti, 1928-1929.
Watson M. Perrygo (1906-1984) was a field collector, taxidermist, and exhibits specialist for the United States National Museum (USNM). During his career at the Museum he traveled extensively and conducted field work with several notable scientists, including Alexander Wetmore and Remington Kellogg.
In 1928 to 1929, Perrygo traveled and collected specimens with W. M. Poole in Haiti. Photographs in this Flickr set were selected from Perrygo’s personal papers to demonstrate the range of natural history and local communities he observed and documented.
