D.V.O.C. SPRING ROUND UP – May 10, 1953

“Local Notes” Binder

The “Local Notes” binder was used in the 1940’s and early 1950’s to help keep track of interesting bird sightings reported by club members. The information was used to help the compiler write the year-end “Field Notes” section for Cassinia.

Although it is unsigned, the Field Notes Compiler during most of the years involved was C. Chandler Ross so it is likely he was the “keeper of the book” for most of it’s existence.

The sightings have been transcibed and the original binder is now in the collection of the Academy of Natural Sciences.
