Biology Laboratory Manual

National Museum of American History
In 1963, the biology department at Jamaica High School in Queens, New York, published this pamphlet for its students. Forty-two laboratory exercises are described. These include observations with a microscope, dissection of a frog, and study of digestion, blood circulation, respiration, and reproduction. Other units concern evolution. The final exercise is a campus field trip. Each section sets a problem, describes procedures for solving it, and has a series of summary questions. There are scattered illustrations done by students at the school. The cover shows a compound microscope and nerve cells.

Radiation Biology Lab in Rockville, Maryland

Smithsonian Archives - History Div
This image is included in Interview 15 of the Shropshire Oral History Interviews, its original negative number is building-15-60.

Image of the southwest corner of the Radiation Biology Lab's building in Rockville, Maryland. It is sometimes called the Parklawn facility since it is located on Parklawn Drive. A hydraulic lift with the solar radiation instruments can be seen on the roof.

The history of the Radiation Biology Laboratory (RBL) can be traced to May 1, 1929, when the Division of Radiation and Organisms was established by Secretary Charles G. Abbot to undertake investigations of the effect of solar radiation on living organisms. In 1941, the Division was administratively placed under the Smithsonian's Astrophysical Observatory.On February 16, 1965, the Division of Radiation and Organisms was abolished. Its work was continued by the newly established Radiation Biology Laboratory (RBL). The research program at RBL was three-pronged: regulatory biology, or how sunlight regulates growth and development of biological organisms; solar radiation measurements; and carbon dating. In 1970, RBL relocated to Rockville, Maryland, but closes in 1986 when some of its programs merge with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center.

See Neg. SIA2011-1456 for a view in 1987 of the area.

Aerial view shows buildings of the National Zoological Park's Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), previously known as the Conservation and Research Center, located in Front Royal, Virginia. SCBI has played a leading role in the fields of veterinary medicine, reproductive physiology and conservation biology since its founding in 1974. Visible among the rolling hills are CRC houses and animal buildings.
