Summary
The bulk of the records of the National Audubon Society document the activities of the organization from its incorporation in 1905 through 1991, reflecting the stewardship of its successive presidents (and vice presidents) including William Dutcher, T. Gilbert Pearson, John H. Baker, Carl W. Buchheister, Charles H. Callison, Elvis J. Stahr, Russell W. Peterson, and Peter A.A. Berle, and the work of its several departments and divisions. The records chronicle the transformation of the National Audubon Society from a relatively small association of ornithologists concerned primarily with the protection of migratory birds along the Atlantic seaboard, into one of the largest and most influential members of the movement for environmental conservation. Files include general and subject correspondence, minutes, reports, photographs, clippings, printed matter, posters, maps, land surveys, sound recordings of meeting minutes and miscellaneous ephemera.
Also present are collateral papers and records dating from 1883. These concern William Dutcher and the Audubon movement in its early stages, including correspondence, field notes, diaries and reports; records of the American Ornithologists' Union; the papers of Frank M. Chapman; records of the Audubon Society of the State of New York; and records of the National Audubon Society's predecessor organization, the National Committee of the Audubon Societies of America, founded in 1901.
