Descriptive Entry:
For a brief history of the American Ornithologists' Union (AOU), see Record Unit 7150, American Ornithologists' Union Collection, 1883-1977.

These records supplement Record Unit 7150, both in extending coverage in early records and providing records from the mid-1970s. Particularly noteworthy are early records of presidents - especially Joel Asaph Allen, Jocelyn Van Tyne, and Ernst Mayr - as well as presidents' and secretaries' papers since the mid-1970s. Much information about early committee work is found in Allen's and Van Tyne's papers. Photographs are of individuals and groups at scientific meetings and strongly supplement the earlier collection. Editorial files cover chiefly Ornithological Monographs, with small amounts pertaining to the Checklist of North American Birds and The Auk.

Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
These records document the history, operation, and activities of the AOU, 1883-1977. For many years the papers were scattered in the hands of various officers until 1969 when the Committee on Archives was established. In 1974 the collection was brought together at the Smithsonian Institution. The records include correspondence, constitutions and by-laws, minutes, membership lists, nominations, fiscal records, contracts, manuscripts, reports, biographical and bibliographical materials, drawings, memorabilia, programs, abstracts, scrapbooks, and photographs.
Historical Note:
The American Ornithologists' Union (AOU) was organized by three members of the Nuttall Ornithological Club, Joel Asaph Allen, William Brewster, and Elliott Coues, who wanted to establish an American society for ornithologists similar to the British Ornithologists' Union. They issued a call which was answered by twenty-three noted American ornithologists, later designated the founders, to meet on September 26, 1883, at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Formal incorporation occurred in 1888 in the District of Columbia. The aim of the AOU is the advancement of ornithological science through annual meetings, membership, committees, and publications. There are several classes of membership: Patron; Benefactor; Member; Elective Member, bestowed upon those members who have made contributions to ornithology; and Fellow, the highest class, which is bestowed upon Elective Members who have made the most significant contributions. Publications of the Union include its quarterly magazine, The Auk; the Handbook of North American Birds; the Check-list of North American Birds; and Ornithological Monographs. The affairs of the AOU are administered under a constitution and by-laws by elected officers and a council.
