GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE (INCOMING AND OUTGOING), 1874-1955.
United States National Museum. Division of Birds Search this
Prior to 1931 outgoing correspondence of the Division of Birds was kept in bound letterpress books, with incoming correspondence kept in loose files in alphabetic
order by name of correspondent. There are, however, a few bits of outgoing correspondence prior to 1921 in this series. Included is some correspondence of Robert Ridgway as
early as the 1860's. The year 1874 was arbitrarily picked to date the early chronological limit of this series because Robert Ridgway came to the Smithsonian as an "Ornithologist"
in that year, although the Department of Ornithology did not officially exist until 1880. The correspondence was usually carried on by the Curator, with some correspondence
of Associate Curators included. The correspondence appears to be incomplete: for instance, the outgoing correspondence of Charles W. Richmond in box 10 above apparently has
no parallel incoming correspondence in this series.
Correspondents represented in Boxes 12-29 include: Charles Conrad ABBOTT, Clinton G. ABBOTT, William Louis ABBOTT, Alexander AGASSIZ, Errett Cyril ALBRITTON, John Warren
