Alexander Wetmore- Field notes, November 1901- April 1902

About the Project

For many Smithsonian scientists, a passion for field research is at the core of their work. But for some—like Smithsonian Secretary Alexander Wetmore—field work started long before their careers did!

Wetmore began his ornithology research when he was a teenager, growing up in North Freedom, Wisconsin. This set of notes documents his early bird observations in his hometown (and on a trip to Minnesota!). Help transcribe Wetmore’s field notes, taken from 1901-1902, for another generation of aspiring scientists!
