Abstract:

Collection is derived from the personal activities of Hornaday (1854-1937), rather than from his official duties as Director and General Curator of the New York Zoological Society, 1896-1926. Papers include correspondence, manuscripts, scrapbooks, and printed matter dealing primarily with his role as a conservationist. Documented in detail are his activities as administrator of the Permanent Wildlife Protection Fund, ca. 1913-1937. Other subjects discussed are passage of the Bayne Law in New York State, status of the fur seal herds, wildlife censuses, excessive hunting, importation of wild bird plumage for millinery purposes, and protection of migratory game and wildlife.

Also, correspondence concerning real estate in Buffalo and publication of his TAXIDERMY AND ZOOLOGICAL COLLECTING, 1911; notes on mountain sheep, 1901; a survey of zoology in schools, 1905-1910; and a short series of miscellaneous writings including a photocopy of his unpublished autobiography, "Eighty Fascinating Years." Prominent correspondents include Frank Baker, Boone and Crockett Club, F.W. Castle, Jay N. Darling, L.L. Dycke, Rosalie Edge, Henry W. Elliot, G. Brown Goode, George Bird Grinnell, the National Committee of One-Hundred, A.H. Nelson, S.D. Platford, Cyril W. Plattes, Edward Seymour, Willard Van Name, Frank Winch, and the Bureau of Biological Survey of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
