Abstract:

The collection consists of two letters received by Lucas, the first from Oldfield Thomas, the second from W.T. Hornaday. Both letters are answers to queries from Lucas.

Thomas's letter, a handwritten and signed single sheet, discusses when he first used the term "melano" for naming a new species. Thomas thinks it was 1902, but can't verify it, noting that he had considered the word for some time before publishing. Hornaday's letter, two typewritten sheets, signed, begins by responding to Lucas's assertion that the antelope group in the Brooklyn Museum is not a "fair" example of habitat groups. Hornaday goes on to praise various exhibits in the AMNH, including the Desert Group, the Orizaba Group, and the San Joaquin Valley group of birds. He refers to his and Lucas's common background of museum taxidermy, and encourages Lucas to write a history of the development of American museums from 1880 to 1910, mentioning the contributions of Henry [A.] Ward and G. Brown Good[e]. Hornaday closes by discussing his planned article for Scribner's magazine on masterpieces in American bird taxidermy, and asks for Lucas's opinion as to which of the collector Jen[n]ess Richardson's bird groups is his best, suggesting the loons.
