This project would not have been possible without the support, guidance, and devotion of Malcom and Delaine Strandberg. This digital collection is dedicated to the memory of artist Harriet E. Bennett Strandberg and naturalist William Beebe.

Harriet Bennett Strandberg, Malcom Strandberg, and William Beebe, circa 1957.

The majority of the illustrations were digitized in 2019 by Connie Allen Studios. Some illustrations were digitized by Martin Parsekian in 2016 for the exhibition Exploratory Works: Drawings from the Department of Tropical Research Field Expeditions.

Project staff included Paula Cafiero, Delaney Duvall Linehan, Sana Masood, Cassandra Paul, and Madeleine Thompson.
