Dearborn, Ned 1865-1948 b. 24 Nov. 1865 Alton, NH d. 1948 (? N.Y.?) Biographical data from Denver Library Ned Dearborn Papers: "BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE Ned Dearborn is known mostly for his work with the U.S. Biological Survey and his writings about birds of Eastern America. A native of New Hampshire, his writing focused on the ornithological occupants of his home region. Dearborn was born in Alton, New Hampshire on November 24, 1865. He attended Dartmouth University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1891. Later he attended the New Hampshire State College and earned a Master's Degree in Science in 1898. Following college, Dearborn taught public school for two years, supervised the lens department of Lord Brothers Optical Company, taught at New Hampshire college for four years, and served as the assistant curator of birds at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago from 1901-1909. His tenure with the Biological Survey lasted from 1909 to 1920, when he became the manager of the Dearborn Fur Farm in Sacket Harbor, New York.

Dillwyn, Lewis Llewelyn 1814-1892 Dillwy, Lewis Weston 1778-1855. Dillwyn, Lewis Llewelyn 1814-1892 Born: 14 May 1814 Member of Parliament. Died: 19 June 1892 (still an MP at time of death). (middle name often spelled "Llewellyn") Richard Morris, whose wife is a descendant of Dillwyn's writes (2002.01.11): "Lewis Llewelyn (correct spelling!) Dillwyn was a British Member of Parliament and an industrialist. His father, Lewis Weston Dillwyn FRS,FLS was the famous botanist and wrote a number of books on the subject. LLD did belong to the Linnean Society but as far as I am aware never wrote or published on botany. The elder brother of LLD was John Dillwyn Llewelyn, a pioneer photographer who married a cousin of Henry Fox Talbot. The family emigrated to America about 1682 and a grandson returned [in the] end of 18th c and settled in London. The township of Dillwyn, Virginia, is I believe, named after the family and the Parrish Museum on Long Island created by a descendant." Dillwyn, Lewis Weston Born: 1778 Died: Aug. 31, 1855 at Swansea, Wales. (Motley) & Dillwyn
