Quotes by others about Spencer Fullerton Baird (1)
I was a reasonably good student in college ... My chief interests were scientific. When I entered college, I was devoted to out-of-doors natural history, and my ambition was to be a scientific man of the Audubon, or Wilson, or Baird, or Coues typea man like Hart Merriam, or Frank Chapman, or Hornaday, to-day.
