Abstract:

The collection consists almost completely of handwritten, signed letters received by Lawrence from other ornithologists and naturalists, discussing the classification of birds and the exchange of bird skins. Some of the folders contain drafts or copies of Lawrence's replies. The collection also contains an inventory of the correspondence compiled by Ralph J. Chodes in 1940.

Much of the work of identifying and describing species of birds in the 19th century relied on cooperation among taxonomists and the exchange of specimens. Lawrence corresponded with ornithologists throughout the United States and in Europe. While there is a small number of official letters from institutions, almost all of the letters are from individuals. In addition to 228 documents from Baird, there are significant numbers from many other correspondents (number of items shown in parentheses) including: J.A. Allen (49); Maria Rebecca Audubon (5); Adolphe Boucard (29); T.M. Brewer (38); William Brewster (24); J.G. Cooper (11); Charles B. Cory (27); Elliott Coues (11); William Dutcher (14); Otto Finsch (25); George F. Gaumer (54); J.P. Giraud (20); John Gould (51); Johannes Gundlach (63); John Henry Gurney, Sr. and Jr. (20 combined); Henry W. Henshaw (16); Frederick A. Ober (47); Robert Ridgway (137); Osbert Salvin (25); Philip Lutley Sclater (100); George B. Sennett (19); A.L.J. Franðcois Sumichrast (71); and John Grant Wells (71).
