Alexander Wetmore - Report, November 1905

About the Project

When you were a student, did your teachers ever find your homework "exceedingly interesting"? Future Secretary of the Smithsonian Alexander Wetmore's professor sure did! Wetmore wrote this report about the spring bird migration in Southern Kansas for his (9 a.m.!) College Rhetoric class at the University of Kansas in 1905. Wetmore, a freshman at the time, received an "exceedingly interesting" as his grade. Wetmore later went on to have an exceedingly interesting career as an ornithologist and curator, observing birds for decades to come.

Join us in transcribing this report and make a young Wetmore's scientific exploration available for generations of new researchers.
