Spencer Fullerton Baird, 1850, detail
07/06/1846
On July 6, 1846, Dickinson College appointed Spencer Baird as a full professor of natural history, one year after Baird first joined Dickinson’s faculty. During Baird’s brief four-year tenure at Dickinson he made a favorable impression on his students as he popularized field excursions into the local fields and forests to supplement classroom lectures.
