I have made a few posts on James Perry Wilson’s work. If you are interested in finding out more about him, the place to go is here: (or click on the word here)
Michael Anderson has been writing Wilson’s biography for some time and has just released chapter eight, which covers Wilson’s work in the North American Mammal Hall at the American Museum of Natural History. Well worth a read.
When I was doing my research into Wilson’s projection methods Michael Anderson was amazingly helpful, both with his knowledge and expertise but also in arranging access to material and sites. He is the Wilson expert.
