Finding Aids to Official Records of the Smithsonian Institution Archives
Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center
Research Records, circa 1975-2001
This accession consists of records documenting the research activities of ornithologist Russell Greenberg (1953-2013). Greenberg began his career in 1977 at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) and was founder and first director of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center at the National Zoological Park in 1991. His earliest records document his research as a graduate student. Judith Gradwohl, STRI Research Associate, circa 1977-1991, and Director of the Office of Environmental Awareness, circa 1991-1994, who was Greenberg's field assistant and, later, his wife, also significantly contributed to these research records. Particularly well-documented in this accession are birds and their habitats on Barro Colorado Island, Panama. Materials include field books, field observations, data sheets, compiled data, journals, proposals, correspondence, slides, articles, notes, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
