Davis, William E, Walter E Boles, Harry F Recher (Editors)

Nuttall Ornithological Club Memoir No. 23. The fourth and last of  four volumes on the history of Australasian ornithology, and is an important contribution to the field. It contains chapters on Australian ornithologist Gregory Mathews, the history of ornithology at the Queensland Museum, father and son Australian naturalists John and James Cockerell, ornithology at the South Australian Museum, and a history of ornithology in Western Australia.  Most of the chapters are written by people who participated in making the history they write about, and they bring to the account personal experience, an intimate knowledge of the subject matter, and rich anecdotal material that adds a distinctive character to descriptive and interpretive history.
