Biographical History

Frederick M. Chamberlain (1867-1921) grew up in Indiana. He studied under ichthyologists Carl Eigenmann and Barton W. Evermann. In 1897 he joined the U.S. Fish Commission (and later for the United States Bureau of Fisheries) as a Scientific Assistant and later promoted to Naturalist in 1903. He took part in research in Alaska, Bering Sea, Hawaiian Islands, and the South Pacific including the Philippines. In 1911 he became an agent for Alaskan salmon fisheries. Much of his research and study focused on fisheries, native fish populations in Alaska and California, as well as design and construction of collecting equipment.
