This collection contains a name index from registers of specialized personnel from NARA's Access to Archival Data. It includes professionals in the field of biology, chemistry, economics, geology, mathematics, psychology, and meteorology, physics, anthropology, political science, and sociology. These registers were created from data compiled from survey questionnaires sent to social and natural scientists. Some of the content in these records changes depending on the year it was gathered, but each record contains important genealogical information.
