Biographical / Historical
After the meeting of April 4, 1910, the Club lapsed into inactivity for nearly ten years. When it was reorganized in December 1919, the emphasis had shifted away from the more scholarly approach of the original members' papers to more of a field trip orientation, with particular concentration on the work of the Homewood bird sanctuary, especially feeding, banding, and observing the species in the Baltimore area. The newer incarnation of the Club was also very fond of taking photographs of their expeditions, several of which are preserved in the minutes.
Scope and Contents
A group of nitrate negatives were also enclosed in the collection, but were destroyed when prints were found in the bound volumes.
