In honor of New York Archives Week, the public is invited to come to the Library to discover the museum’s rich history of scientific exploration around the world.
The American Museum of Natural History Library has received a grant of $16,380 from the National Film Preservation Foundation to preserve the Great Gull Island Film Collection. The three films in this series offer a glimpse into the life work of AMNH Ornithologist, Helen Hays.
In 1904 Julian Anthony Dimock, then 31, and his 62 year-old father, Anthony Weston Dimock, found their way from New York City to Marco Island on the lower Gulf coast of Florida. Over the next decade the two former financiers traveled around south Florida by boat, canoe, and ox cart. Julian took photographs and both he and his father wrote several books and nearly 80 magazine and newspaper articles about the people, places, and the unique natural setting.
The Research Library at the American Museum of Natural History is pleased to announce the launch of its image database website, Digital Special Collections.
