Smithsonian Geological Explorations


    DURING the past year, the Smithsonian Institution was represented in the field by nineteen parties and individuals engaged in the collection of data relative to astrophysics, geology, biology, and anthropology, besides nine representatives of the Bureau of American Ethnology, who secured information relative to the American Indian. While most of the exploration occurred in the United States, considerable work was carried on in Canada, the West Indies, Peru, Switzerland, Borneo, Cashmere, Egypt, Greece, and Italy.
