Bimini

 Collection
Identifier: Film Collection no. 202

Scope and Contents

The Lerner Marine Laboratory, on Bimini in the Bahamas, was established in the same year this film was made, 1948, and given to the museum by Michael Lerner. The film opens with travelogue material: markets, streets, traffic policemen, adults and children, before it moves to the research center, with views of the grounds of the center, Lerner's yacht, the Playmate, and Helen Lerner, Lerner's wife, fishing from a skiff. At the laboratory, Lerner, William King Gregory, AMNH vertebrate paleontologist, and Ross Nigrelli, of the New York Zoological Society, discuss various species of fish. Most of the footage in this film is devoted to the fish and other marine animals in the various collection tanks.
