Excerpt from Expeditions Organized or Participated in by the Smithsonian Institution in 1910 and 1911
The National Museum has participated in most of these enter prises, sometimes furnishing equipment or supplies, and at other times detailing members of its scientific staff t... o conduct investigations or to make collections.
In recent years, opportunities have been afforded for participating in exploring and hunting expeditions organized by private enterprise, whereby scientific collections of great importance have been obtained. These collections, with those from other sources, are preserved in the National Museum for exhibition to the public. Or for promoting scientific studies.
