About this Item

12mo. "In 1875, the state legislature of Colorado requested Mrs. M.A. Maxwell, of Boulder, Colorado to place her Colorado animal exhibit in the Centennial Exhibition. That was probably the first such legislative action and serves to emphasize the importance of this exhibit at a national celebration.The newspapers had given her the title 'Colorado Huntress.' In spite of this title she was a kindly 4 feet 11 inches tall, and 'as shy as one of her own weasels.' " Viola S. Schantz, "Mrs. M.A. Maxwell, A Pioneer Mammalogist.". Bookseller Inventory # 248237
