Description:Harris B. Stewart, who eventually became the first director of the NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory in Miami, FL, joined the February 1958 New York Harbor Circulatory Survey and the March 1958 Winyah Bay Current Survey in South Carolina. At this time Dr. Stewart was the Chief Hydrographer for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in Washington, D.C. The main goal of both expeditions was to monitor water currents. Dr. Stewart's papers were donated to NOAA by his family upon his passing in 2000. This is an example of one of his field diaries. The field diary written for New York Harbor and Winyah Bay contains descriptions of the day-to-day ship activities.
It includes scanned manuscript pages of the original field expedition diary by H.B. Stewart, 1958.
