A talk by Joy Kiser on "America's Other Audubon"
The author of America's Other Audubon, Joy has worked for years researching the remarkable story behind Genevieve Jones and the Jones family's Illustrations of the nests and eggs of birds of Ohio (Circleville, Ohio, 1880-1886). During that time she has lectured widely on it, from conferences at the Society for the History of Natural History in London to the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, and has published articles in the Ohio journal of science and the magazine Biblio, among others. Her book (New York: Princeton Architectural Press, 2012) has been a resounding hit – reviewed and highlighted in newspapers and magazines from the Columbus Dispatch to the Paris Review, from the Wall Street Journal to the journal Nature, and she has been interviewed by the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and National Public Radio, among others. There have even been spin-off publications and products, a sure sign of popular success.
Joy was born and raised in Ohio and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from the University of Akron in 1989, followed in 1990 by a Master's in Art History from Case Western Reserve University. She began working in libraries and archives and earned a Master's in Library Science in 1994 from Kent State University. From 1995 to 2001 she worked at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, rising to Head Librarian and Curator of Rare Books, and it was there – on her very first day on the job – that her involvement with the "Nests & eggs" began.
When she moved to Washington in 2001 for a job as Head Librarian at the National Endowment for the Arts, Joy also began volunteering for the Smithsonian Libraries, and she produced an online display and essay about the "Nests & eggs" for the Libraries' website. Intrigued by Joy's research and the Joneses' book, Princeton Architectural Press undertook to publish a modern reproduction of the beautiful images that Genevieve Jones and her family produced over 100 years ago, and I invite you to join us at Fort McNair on the 16th to hear the full story of their fascinating work.
The event will begin with a cash bar at 11:30am followed by lunch at noon. The cost for the lunch is $26.00 per person. Places MUST be reserved in advance, and please note the names of any guests. Please send your check, made out to WRBG, to be received by Monday, May13th to William E. Baxter at 2524 North Florida Street, Arlington, VA 22207. If you have any questions, contact Bill at email@example.com or at 202-633-2067.
The lunch will also constitute the Group's annual meeting, including the election of officers for the coming year. I look forward to seeing you all at our last event until next fall.
