Excerpt from Birds From Siam and the Malay Peninsula in the United States National Museum Collected by Drs; Hugh M. Smith and William L. Abbott Dr. Hugh M. Smith went to Siam in 1923 as adviser and expert in fisheries to his Siamese Majesty's Government, to investigate and develop the fish resources of the country. In addition to his official duties, he immediately began collecting material in other branches of natural history in his spare time and forwarding the results to the United States National Museum. Dr. Smith collected in eastern and southeastern Siam early in 1924 and visited Koh Chang, a large mountainous island lying about 10 miles off the coast of the southeastern part of the country. Not many birds were collected on this visit, however. In May he visited Bangnara, Patani, and later in the year returned to southeastern Siam. He collected there and around Bangkok for the remainder of the year and early the following year. On January 1, 1926, Dr. Smith went to Koh Chang again, then explored the adjacent country and the Korat Plateau, revisited Bangnara and Patani, and made collections in Nakon Sritamarat and Koh Tao, off Bandon. In addition, he made collections around Bang kok. Dr. Smith was still on Koh Tao early in 1927 and then collected on the mainland for a few days, returning to Bangkok. From there he went to eastern and southeastern Siam and was back in Bangkok late in March. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
