Historical Note:
George A. Boardman (1818-1901) was born in Newburyport, Massachusetts. He moved to Calais, Maine, with his family in 1828, and lived there for the remainder of his life. Boardman owned a lumber business for over 30 years, retiring in 1871. An amateur ornithologist, Boardman was acquainted with many prominent naturalists and corresponded extensively with Spencer F. Baird of the Smithsonian Institution. After his retirement from business, Boardman spent his winters in Florida collecting specimens, many of which were donated to the United States National Museum. His primary contribution to ornithological literature was the "Catalogue of the Birds Found in the Vicinity of Calais, ME., and about the Islands at the Mouth of the Bay of Fundy" which appeared in the Proceedings of the Boston Society of Natural History in 1862.
