Series 6: Technicians Reports, 1942-1945
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 6: Technicians Reports (1942-1945) consists of reports submitted by the technicians of the RDC. Each report contains information concerning an already existing or respective rubber site. Every report includes information on location, statement of purpose, itinerary, conclusion and recommendations. Also, transportation, speed of action and supplies are frequently commented on. The physical attributes of the location are described such as soil, altitude, rainfall, tree density, and quality of rubber. Generally, maps are included and show the routes taken to the site. Finally, there is a fascinating and detailed Rio Negro diary accounting the daily travel events of two technicians.
The reports in this series are arranged in two sections: by technician's name and, by region. Both sections are arranged alphabetically.
No information about appraisal is available for this collection.
