Spencer Fullerton Baird, Report of the Curator of the Musuem, July 11, 1848

Spencer Fullerton Baird, 1850, detail
In an annual report to Dickinson College’s Board of Trustees, Spencer Baird noted the quickening pace of the school museum’s acquisition of new specimens. This was a credit to Baird’s role as a professor as he sparked scientific interest among his students. Baird continued his own collecting and many of the items on the Museum’s inventory were “deposited by the Curator.” (By Rebecca Solnit)
