Moses Ashley Curtis (1808-1872): Contributions to Carolina Ornithology

Record #:
Contrary to ideas that no serious zoological studies were conducted in North Carolina until after the Civil War, there is considerable evidence that Reverend Moses Ashley Curtis was the first modern scholar of animal life in the State. Although known mostly for his studies in botany, Curtis' earliest ornithological investigations began almost 30 years before the Civil War and almost 50 years before the well-known studies by John S. Carins and the Brimleys. Appendices include lists of North Carolina Birds.
