    Acquisition Information

    This material came to the Bancroft Library in January 1966 from the Gift Division of the General Library. Its provenance is unknown.

    Scope and Content

    The collection contains correspondence and papers, photocopy of some issues of the Gull, miscellaneous publications re birds, stationary and brochures, miscellaneous accounts, and minutes, 1930-1944. The Association, founded in 1917, immediately launched campaigns to preserve migratory birds from destruction around lighthouses, crusaded against the dumping of oil in off-shore waters, promoted Lake Merced as a bird sanctuary, and actively supported and initiated legislation on conservation matters.
    The original arrangement of the Papers has been preserved. Incoming and outgoing letters as well as miscellaneous papers are chronologically interfiled, with, at the end, a few folders of material segregated by subject. A partial list of correspondents is found at the end of the report.
