This accession consists of correspondence, memoranda, reports, price lists, and publications documenting relations between the National Zoological Park (NZP) and domestic and foreign zoological parks and animal dealers. Much of the material documents the acquisition, loan, and exchange of animals. Most of the records were created during the tenure of Director Theodore H. Reed, with smaller amounts created by his predecessor, William M. Mann, and by Associate Director, J. Lear Grimmer.
