New Light on the History of American Ornithology

May 16 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Discover the forgotten history of American Ornithology in a special presentation by Matthew R. Halley, PhD. In “Birds of the Philadelphia Museum: New Light on the History of American Ornithology,” Halley reveals his findings on the buried contributions of Charles Wilson Peale (1741-1827), and challenges our interpretation of the history and development of scientific ornithology in the United States.

The presentation will be held in the Copeland Room at the Delaware History Museum.

There will be time for questions at the end. Light refreshments will be provided.
