This accession consists of materials created by Reginald J. Sayre (1909-2000), preparator and model maker for exhibits at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), 1959-1980s. He participated in an expedition to British Guiana in 1962 to collect specimens and make molds and drawings of the site for the rainforest section of an exhibit in the Hall of Plant Life at NMNH. Much of this collection consists of slides of several of his trips and projects as well as techniques for drawing and model making. Materials also include correspondence, postcards, notes, illustrations, clippings, photographs, exhibition drawings, and audiovisual materials.
