Edward W. Nelson - Alaska, April 1 - December 23, 1879

About the Project

Beginning his third year in Alaska, naturalist Edward W. Nelson (1855-1934) continued to monitor the weather around the Bering Strait as part of the U. S. Army Signal Corps. And, as in the two years prior, he continued to observe and document the flora, fauna and indigenous people in that region. His habit of recording in detail earned him high praise from Theodore Roosevelt who called Nelson "one of the keenest naturalists we have ever had." Will you join us in transcribing year three of Edward Nelson's work in Alaska?
