Subject: [texbirds] Early Female Ornithologist Florence M. Bailey visits Texas & Mexico in 1900 (1916 Condor)
Texbirders: 
Another historical ornithology article I found interesting recounts a 1900 spring visit through a slice of Texas from Texarkana to the Rio Grande Valley and into Mexico by Florence M. Bailey (1863-1948) of the U.S. Bureau of Biological Survey. She was the first female member of the AOU, helped found the Washington D.C. Audubon Society and authored several of the earliest bird field guides in the U.S.
Article in the 1916 Condor in three short parts about the trip.https://sora.unm.edu/sites/default/files/journals/condor/v018n04/p0151-p0155.pdf
