San Diego Natural History Museum Shell Department – San Diego CA

Description

"When the museum's curator of shells was retired on a pension, her WPA assistant on Project 597 was capable of stepping into a vacant place. This aid came at a time when three large shell collections were received by gift, that required immediate attention for cataloging and scientific classification at the Natural History Museum, Balboa Park, San Diego, CA."
