Scope and Content Note

The series consists of personal and professional correspondence covering areas of interest to Schroeder such as cod tagging, shark attacks, red crabs, and a Cuban trip, and documenting his relationship with WHOI, Henry B. Bigelow and Roman Vishniac. There are several folders documenting Schroeder’s appointments and work with the Bureau of Fisheries (box 2 ff. 16-19); a letter of commendation from Herbert Hoover (box 2, f.26); and letters from Schroeder’s father, known as “ Pop Schroeder,” who was then Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds at WHOI (box 2, f. 31). General correspondence includes ichthyological discussions between Schroeder and the scientific and commercial fishing community as well as personal letters. Some photographs are interfiled with correspondence where appropriate.
