Artist Biography

Roger Tory Peterson�(August 28, 1908 � July 28, 1996) was an American�naturalist, ornithologist, artist, and educator, and held to be one of the founding inspirations for the 20th-century environmental movement. Peterson's first work on birds was an article "Notes from field and study" in the magazine�Bird-lore, where he recorded anecdotally two sight records from 1925, a Carolina wren and a titmouse. In 1934 he published his seminal�Guide to the Birds, the first modern field guide, which sold out its first printing of 2�000 copies in one week, and subsequently went through 6 editions. One of the inspirations for his field guide was the diagram of ducks that Ernest Thompson Seton made in Two Little Savages�(1903). He co-wrote�Wild America�with James Fisher, and edited or wrote many of the volumes in the Peterson Field Guide series, on topics ranging from rocks and minerals to beetles�to reptiles. He developed the Peterson Identification System, and is known for the clarity of both his illustrations of field guides and his delineation of relevant field marks
