Curator's Corner: Big Band Story


It is nice to know that we all still appreciate a good laugh. A 1975 edition of Fish & Wildlife News featured an article and photo of two Service biologists “banding the world’s largest Laysan albatross.” They were putting a fake band on a very large statue of an albatross on Midway Island. Some things never change, including silly articles from Service folk— like curators!

Jeanne M. Harold, curator of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Museum and Archives at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, says the history surrounding the objects in the museum gives them life.
