Specimen notes and photograph
McCoy Society for Field Investigation and Research (estab. 1935, closed 1998)
Circa Jan 1938
Six McCoy Society cards and one black and white photograph of a skull diagram. The McCoy Society cards were printed to inform attendees of a time change to their film viewing event on the 11th of August 1937. These cards have been repurposed as specimen labels for collections the Society made on an expedition to King Island from 6 December 1937-26 January 1938. The cards refer to specimens of quolls, kangaroos, red-necked wallabies, and Tasmanian pademelons - the latter two being described as being collected on King Island by Alan Tippett, a missionary and anthropologist who accompanied the McCoy Society on their expedition. The photograph is of a diagram of the dorsal view of a macropod skull drawn by Frederic Wood Jones, similar to diagrams in his book, The Mammals of South Australia.
