Abstract

These field notes were created as part of the ‘Smithsonian African Expedition, Under the Direction of Col. Theodore Roosevelt (1909-10).' This volume contains a list of initial identifications for specimens numbered 1 – 1858. Pasted throughout are typed notes documenting landmarks and geographic features (e.g., West Forest Kenia Station, Katheroni River) and altitudes. The geographic coverage spans what was then known as British East Africa, including frequent references to the West Kenya Forest Station and the "giant heath" zone. Also found in this volume is a typewritten page entitled ‘Documents on the plaque of Dr. E. A. Mearns on Plummer’s Island’ which cites documents from the Washington Biologists’ Field Club Archives (compiled by Dan H. Nicolson, 2000).

Documents on the plaque of Dr. E. A. Mearns on Plummer's Island The following information has been compiled from the Washington Biologists' Field Club Archives concerning Edgar Alexander Mearns (11 Sep 1856 - 1 Nov 1916) and the fact that he has a plaque on Plummer's Island, although he was never a member of the Club. Note: the 1984 Revised Edition of the Members & History of the Club says (p. 48) "... although he was not a member, there rest on the island, through his special request, the ashes of an early distinguished friend of the Club, Edgar Alexander Mearns." 1. letter of 10 Jan 1917 from J. H. Riley (U. S. National Museum, Washington, DC) to Dr. A. K. Fisher (member of Board of Managers) "Mrs. Mearns called at the office this morning and states that Dr. Mearns' ashes were still at the undertaking establishment. She said that the doctor [i.e., E. A. Mearns] had expressed a wish that his ashes be taken to Plummer's Island and there scattered or deposited. It seems to me there could be no objection and it would really add to interest to the Island as the last resting place of the greatest of natural history collectors. If you would call around in the near future I would like to discuss some plan to carry out Dr. Mearns' wish. /Very truly yours,/J. H. Riley. 2. Annual meeting 12 Apr 1917 [p. 3] "Dr. Fisher brought up the matter of the spreading of the ashes of the late Dr. Mearns on the Island and by motion it was ordered that the Club give appreciative and solemn acceptance to the proposition of spreading the ashes of Dr. Mearns on Plummer's Island and the a committee of three be appointed to carry out the wishes of Dr. Mearns. "The Chair [President Henry C. Fuller} appointed Mssrs. [A.K.] Fisher, [David] White and [W.E.] Safford. "It was moved and carried that the question of installing a suitable tablet commemorative of the spreading of ashes of Dr. Mearns be left to the Board of Managers." 3. Annual Business Meeting 12 Apr 1918 [p. 2] "Dr. Fisher then reported on the activities of the Committee appointed on the memorial for Edgar Alexander Mearns and presented designs for a suitable tablet to be cast in bronze and placed on an upright face of stone on a high point on the island immediately north of the cabin. Dr. Fisher then presented a motion to the effect that, in installing such a tablet, friends of Dr. Mearns who were not members of the Club be given an opportunity to subscribe and that the club meet the rest of the expense, this not to exceed $50. The motion was seconded and carried. The chair directed that the /[p. 3] committee in charge of this memorial continue." 4. Annual Business Meeting 18 Apr 1919 [p. 3] "Dr. A.K. Fisher, Chairman of the Committee on a suitable memorial for Edgar Alexander Mearns, stated that a bronze tablet, the design for which had been approved at the last annual business meeting, had been secured. There had been unlooked for delay in placing this tablet through difficulty in securing an experienced man to do the necessary work but it was hoped to have it installed by the date of the spring Field Meeting."
5. Annual Business Meeting 16 Apr 1920 [p. 2] "Dr. Fisher reported for the Committee in charge of the Mearns memorial that the tablet to Dr. Mearns had been installed in the rock on the cliff north of the cabin a few days before the last fall field meeting [Sunday 9 Nov 1919]. Photographs of the site, with a description of it had been forwarded to Mrs. Mearns and her daughter and a letter received from them had expressed their appreciation. Mr. Coville commented on the peculiar fitness of a natural monument to the memory of Dr. Mearns. It was moved and seconded that this report of this committee be accepted and the committee discharge with the thanks of the club for the very satisfactory way in which they had handled their commission. Note: In reviewing the Field Club signed sheets for Plummer's Island (1913-1918) I noted that Dr. Mearns visited twice during that period with his wife and daughter: 1. On Sunday 2 Nov 1913, 4 members (including A. K. Fisher, E. w. Nelson, Paul Bartsch, and H. S. Barber) visited Plummer's Island with a number of guests, including Edgar A. Mearns, Lillian H[athaway]. Mearns [his daughter], and Ella W[ittich]. Mearns [his wife, married in 1881]. 2. On Friday 20 Nov 1914, F. Hollister visited Plummer's Island with Edgar A. Mearns, Ella W. Mearns, and Lillian H. Mearns. Dan H. Nicolson 8 Nov 2000
