About the Author:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR EDWIN WARREN THE BIRDMAN OF TREADWELL Edwin Warren was born in Quincy, California on June. 20, 1881 and died in Oakland, California, January 1974. Edwin was very religious as the warrens were very stern Methodist's, as they were among the original Methodist's that founded Pacific Grove as a religious retreat. Edwin made two journeys to Alaska were he worked as a miner at the Treadwell gold mine on Douglas Island, Alaska the first journey was in 1903 and then again in 1904. Edwin went to Alaska for two reasons the first was to earn his tuition at Stanford University were he attended in the years of 1904 - 1908 and studied ornithology, Zoology and English literature. The other reason he went to Alaska was to pursue his interest in ornithology. While on these journeys Edwin kept his dairies which are now with the passage of time historical over one hundred years later. Edwin tells of death & injury in the mine. He worked as a miner, powder man and as a cage tender as well as in the 300 stamp mill. Edwin owned a Dairy in Menlo Park, California shortly after attending Stanford and later owned a three hundred acre Ranch in northern California were he was a rice grower. In Edwin's later years he once remarked to my mother Margaret Kibler that he had missed his calling and that he should have been a professor, I was told by an aunt that Edwin senior was a professor, but that has not been confirmed. Edwin was a true Gentleman at all times under even the worst of situations and never raised his voice in anger and never used a profanity under any circumstance. &am
