Biographical/Historical Note

Internationally known ornithologist, Alfred O. Gross, was born April 8, 1883, in Atwood, Illinois. His parents Henry, a merchant, and Sophia, were immigrants from Kadelburg, Germany. Gross received his Ph.D from Harvard in 1912. He married Edna Gross in Reading, Pennsylvania, July 3, 1913; they had three children, William (Bowdoin 1937), Thomas (Bowdoin 1940), and Edna.

Gross was instructor (1912-13) and professor of biology at Bowdoin (1913-53) and the first director of Bowdoin's Scientific Station on Kent Island (located in New Brunswick, Canada); he received an honorary degree from the college in 1952. A Fellow and Patron of the American Ornithologists Union, Gross served as ornithologist on Donald B. MacMillan's Arctic expeditions of 1934 and 1937, and was the author of 265 scientific articles and books. He devoted his life to the study of birds, with a special emphasis on the Heath Hen and the Ruffed Grouse.

Gross continued to conduct research and write articles and scholarly reviews until shortly before his death in Greenwich, Connecticut on May 9, 1970. He was a friend of poet and novelist Robert P. T. Coffin, and author Thornton Burgess.

Series Description:

This series contains both letters to Alfred Gross and many carbon copies of letters that Gross sent to colleagues, family, and friends. The earliest and latest years of the chronological series contain more letters from family members. There are also several letters from Edna Gross, Gross' wife, in the undated file. Along with many other ornithologists, Gross assisted A.C. Bent in writing a comprehensive reference work on birds, "Bent's Life Histories of North American Birds." Their letters to one another can be found mainly in the 1940-1959 folders. There is also a regular exchange of letters between Gross and T.E. Musselman (Blue bird ornithologist from Illinois) in the 1960-1968 folder. In addition to the chronological arrangement there are several folders devoted to the letters from one individual or entity to Gross and his responses. Additional personal correspondence folders include bird clubs to which Gross was a member, officers of the bird clubs, and fellow professors.

                                      This series contains finished works of various natures and notes to certain public lectures (1918-1959, undated) that Alfred Gross gave over the course of his life. The lectures range in focus from highly scientific discussions of birds presented to the American Ornithologists' Union to general bird observations presented to the Rotary Club of Brunswick, Maine. The notes vary in style and detail from typed speeches to handwritten note cards. Some of the lecture notes are accompanied by slide lists. Also included in the series is a folder of correspondence directly related to Gross' lectures (1921-1927, undated). They are from bird and social clubs all over New England, as well as carbon copies of letters from Gross, and discuss invitations to lecture, equipment requirements, payment, and appreciation. The printed works include final typed drafts of articles written by Gross and colleagues, submitted for publication and returned to the authors upon request. There are also copies of the printed publications in which Gross' work appears as well as works that he referenced or followed with interest. Newsletters and reports released by bird club organizations and state and federal offices are also included in this series. A small number of folders include printed ephemera such as advertisements, national park information booklets, and event programs.

Some of the items are specifically for recording scientific information. Others, such as his journals kept during his two around the world trips (1955-56 and 1957-58) record both his vacations with his wife and scientific information. many of the journals have handwritten indices, photograph guides, and page numbers. Several journals have letters, photographs, and articles pasted to their pages. While working on the Gull/Cormorant Control Project daily records were kept of project activities. The records from 1944-1951 are included in this series. Also in this series is a subject guide to certain species and locations of interest on note cards. These cards detail bird sightings and in many instances there is a reference to one of Gross' yearly journals and page number.

There are working drafts of Gross' publications, often with multiple drafts of the same publication at different stages in the writing process. These drafts are both handwritten and typed and include corrections and editorial remarks. There are some early drafts of work by other scientists as well as research performed by Gross' students. The Heath Hen, Ruffed Grouse, Snowy Owl, and Goshawk represent major topics in Gross' work and there are large portions in this series devoted to them (Owls and hawks are treated as one topic). The different animals are discussed in correspondence folders spanning several years each. Notes and drafts of reports and publications can also be found. Because of the collaborative effort involved in much of this research there are often letters and reports not authored by or directed to Gross. There are also data sheets and questionaries discussing teh Ruffed Grouse and "owls and hawks" in detail. The time periods in which Gross researched these birds overlap and many of the items address more than one species.

Reels of film include footage of the (now extinct) Heath Hen on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, circa 1932; Bowdoin College's Scientific Station (Kent Island, New Brunswick, Canada), 1936-; and trips to the Labrador region of Canada to study birdlife, including film of the 1934 MacMillan Arctic expedition where Gross was the expedition ornithologist. The films show Gross, his colleagues, and students observing and recording birdlife, and also document aspects of expedition life.

Most of the footage is black and white with some color spliced in. Scenes include Scientific Station personnel, landscapes, buildings, and birds; expedition vehicles leaving Bowdoin College and at the dock in Lubec, Maine loading equipment and supplies onto a boat the "Scientist"; the "Scientist" at sea towing a row boat and passing a fenced retaining area for boats, and unloading at Kent Island. Alfred O. Gross, William Gross, Ernest Joy, Thornton Burgess, and others are shown (reel 2). Also includes maps of Kent Island, scenes of the island and its buildings, the weather station, the research group (including students), nesting birds and chicks, early birdsong recordist Albert Brand (Cornell University) who came to Kent Island to record Leach's Petrels, student playing "Songs of Wildbirds" (by Brand) on a record player, student pressing plants, and wildflowers on the island (reel 3).

Gross filmed three male birds in 1928, but by 1929 only one male, named “Booming Ben” by the local press, remained. In 1931, Alfred Gross, accompanied by his friend, the well-known naturalist and children’s author Thornton Burgess, came to Martha’s Vineyard to make a complete record of the last Heath Hen. They trapped, banded, photographed, filmed, and then released the bird— the film documents all of these activities and explains them with intertitles.
