Alexander Wetmore was a hero of mine. I had a chance to meet him on a few occasions at ornithological meetings (when he was very kindly to a young ornithologist). He was a tall man with a deep, resonant voice - rather like Raymond Massey playing Lincoln. At one AOU meeting we had a showing of a film of the Tanager Expedition, narrated by Wetmore himself - a memorable experience!

Actually Wetmore was married twice. He married Fay Holloway in 1912, and a daughter, Margaret Fenwick, was born in 1916. After the death of his first wife in 1953, he married Annie Beatrice Thielen.

Dear Ms. Parilla -
Your commentary makes the project come alive for us as well. What a long and productive career. Wonder if he had a family along the way?
