Title

Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program (POBSP)

Description

From 1963 to 1969, the Smithsonian Institute sent researchers to many of the smaller and often uninhabited islands of the Pacific to record the living conditions and behaviors of native plant and animal life. Besides the thousands of photographs, journal entries, and other tracking data collected, over 1.8 million birds were banded.

This collection contains photographs and journal data from the researchers time on Palmyra, in early March of 1964, and March of 1967.
