This accession consists of field notes, research, and catalogue records created or maintained by Roger B. Clapp. Clapp worked in the Biological Survey Unit, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, United States Geological Survey from 1970 until his retirement in December of 2011. (In 1989, the Biological Survey Unit was called the Biological Survey Group, National Ecology Research Center, United States Fish and Wildlife Service.) His research interests included hole-nesting birds, birds of Virginia, and birds of the Pacific Ocean.
The majority of these records relate to his earlier work with the Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program (POBSP). These records consist of field notebooks created by Clapp and others conducting a biological survey of islands in the Pacific Ocean (see Record Unit 245). A small portion of this collection consists of catalogue records, manuscripts, and field notes of birds in Virginia and Florida. Materials include field notebooks and manuscripts.
