Arthur W. Stelfox - Diary 1: Hymenoptera
About the Project
Take a trip through Ireland at the end of the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921) with naturalist and architect Arthur Wilson Stelfox. Stelfox, Assistant Naturalist at the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin, began this set of field notes in May 1921, and documents his specimen collection work through May 1926. In addition to his observations on the weather ("a wettish, dull day!"), Stelfox's field book includes data about specimens including insects to bats.
