DURING the past year the Museum, through the aid of a grant from the Eldridge Reeves Johnson Fund of the American Philosophical Society, has been able to publish several volumes of scientific publications that go a long way toward bringing its publication program up to date. These volumes are concerned with the results of extensive field work which the limited resources of the Museum had not previously been able to bring to press although several had long been awaiting publication and will be of great benefit to scholars and students. It is hoped that during the coming year this program of publication can be continued. The following volumes have been completed under this grant or will be within a short time.
