Smithsonian Archives - History Div
In the 1880s, Robert Ridgway, Smithsonian Curator of the Division of Birds, sits at his desk located on the fifth floor of the South Tower, in the Smithsonian Institution Building, the "Castle". The room was reached by a flight of stone steps, which Ridgway delighted in bounding up two at a time. Ridgway worked in the South Tower from about 1875 to 1895. This was an extremely prolific period, during which he published over 300 articles on birds.

Dr. Anson Hines of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) uses a directional hydrophone to track an ultrasonically telemetered blue crab on the Rhode River. This investigation used ultrasonic telemetry to record the patterns of movement and habitat of the Atlantic blue crab, a commercially and biologically important denizen of the Chesapeake Bay. The research was carried out by Hines in collaboration with Dr. Thomas Wolcott, a professor in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences of North Carolina Sate University, Raleigh.
