    Excerpt from Annual Report of the Director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard College to the President and Fellows of Harvard College for 1923-1924

    The disadvantages under which much of the curatorial work is carried on, owing to lack of room and equipment, is also deplorable. To note specifically a single instance: the collection Of inverte brate fossils was considered twenty or more years ago to be well provided for a normal increase and development. Appointed Curator in 1912, Professor P. E. Raymond has by his knowledge, persistence, and in great measure by his personal field-work, SO increased the collection that four large rooms are overcrowded with classified material awaiting distribution, and large accumula tions as yet unstudied. These additions are not duplications, but are in large part from faunas unrepresented or poorly represented in previously acquired collections.

    The same condition prevails with the collections of lower verte brates, birds, mammals, and with many groups of invertebrates.

    As noted several years ago, the only betterment of Museum research facilities involves the elimination or further curtailment of laboratory work in the Museum; a realization Of the former would lessen the natural anxiety felt for the safe preservation of absolutely irreplaceable collections, collections that should be free from the dangers unavoidable with present-day experimental work.
