The collection consists of six notebooks (four composition, one small spiral notepad, one leather), kept as part of Hyman’s research work on invertebrate, including taxonomic identification of Turbellaria. The notebooks range from 1927 to 1964. They feature mathematical equations, trial and error scientific testing and a log of specimens. The majority of the journal content details specimen numbers, as well as information when these items were received, from where and whom. They are all handwritten. Subjects include Hydra, Polycladida, Acoela, and Tricladida classifications. The collection spans Hyman’s research from her time at the University of Chicago, her work at the Bermuda Biological Station and through her affiliation with American Museum of Natural History as a research assistant.
