Cassinia

  • Since 1890, the DVOC has published an ornithological record of the Delaware Valley region: a journal that was named Cassinia in 1900, to honor the great Pennsylvanian ornithologist John Cassin (1813–1869). The current editor of Cassinia is Matthew R. Halley.

    The DVOC is proud to offer the complete Cassinia archive below, now 126 years in the making. PDF files can be downloaded by clicking on the article titles.

  • Cassinia_cover

Several indexes are available for the Abstracts and the Cassinias. Entries for Number 1 (1890-1891) to Number 63 (1988-89) were prepared by Frank and Barb Haas, Bob Mercer and Chris Dooley at the time of the 100th anniversary of the Club. These indexes have been updated to Number 70 (2002-2003) by Lynn Jackson. This index has been further updated to reflect Number 71, 72 and 73 (2004-2009).
