This accession consists of the records of Ian G. Macintyre, Curator Emeritus, who specializes in carbonate sedimentology with a multidisciplinary interest in post-glacial history of coral reefs, submarine lithification, skeletal mineralogy of reef organisms, bioerosion, and Holocene sea-level history in the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific. The records primarily document Macintyre's curatorial activities in the Department of Paleobiology at the National Museum of Natural History in regard to field work, professional societies, research publications, speeches, and when he served as Chairman of the Department of Paleobiology (1982-1987) and as coordinating editor of "Atoll Research Bulletin." Earlier records date from when Macintyre was a research scientist at the Duke University Marine Laboratory (1967-1970), as well as during the years he attended McGill University where he earned a doctorate degree in 1967.
Materials include correspondence, memoranda, and notes; meeting agendas and minutes; proposals; agreements; information about conferences, committees, symposiums, and workshops; reports; articles and newspaper clippings; research publications; book reviews; speech papers and presentation material; survey information; Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) photomicrographs and negatives; field notebooks and data; photographs, slides, and negatives; drawings; maps; brochures; audiotapes; and supporting documentation.
