Founded in 1873, the Nuttall Ornithological Club
was the first organization in North America devoted to ornithology. During
the Club’s 125 years, its members have included the premier names in the
field of ornithology, such as William Brewster, Ludlow Griscom, and Roger
Tory Peterson. A primary goal of the club is to publish ornithological
literature. Meetings are held monthly at Harvard University in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, and feature speakers from all areas of ornithological expertise.
