The Princeton Scientific Expeditions Collection brings together original
materials from the university archives that document the work of various scientific
expeditions conducted under the aegis of Princeton University and its corporate
predecessors. The connection with the university ranges from enterprises duly
authorized in the trustees' minutes to expeditionary tasks that happen to have been
carried out by members of the university faculty, often with little official notice
of Princeton as an institution.
