About this book

Contains the history of the Washington Biologists' Field Club as well as a short biography of all the past and present members of the Club. Members of the Club conducted research on Plummers Island in the Potomac River and this land is considered the most intensely studied natural area in North America. The cumulative total of 267 members represents all branches of natural science, with a strong emphasis on biology. In addition to the scientists, members have included famous naturalists such as John Burroughs, administrators like Ira Gabrielson, and well-known artists such as Roger Tory Peterson. All members of the Club resided in the Washington, D.C. area while they were members and many continued as nonresident members after leaving the area.

The biographies provide excellent reference material for those interested in many of the biological science leaders during a span of over 100 years and is especially of value to those persons with genealogy interests.
