HARRISON, Ed Newton (1914-2002), oologist and natural historian born in Cody, Wyoming who became a Los Angeles businessman. He established the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology [WFVZ] in 1956, whose mission is to acquire, integrate and preserve avian collections. Other founding board members included C. V. Duff, J. R. “Bill” Pemberton, Frances Roberts and William Sheffler. The WFVZ was formed at a time many natural history museum were unwilling to add eggs to their holdings, thus the Foundation was in a good position to become the home of the world's largest collection of eggs. Harrison donated his 11,000 egg sets, 2,000 nests, and 1700 study skins, after which he became a collector of collections. In 1992 a large warehouse was purchased in Camarillo, California as home to the Foundation.

Ed Harrison died in 2002 and is survived by his Foundation, the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology.

Harrison collected a total of six bald eagle egg sets from the Channel Islands:

  • Anacapa Island on
March 10, 1935
March 1, 1936 [WFVZ #172982; #172984]


  • Santa Cruz Island on
March 10, 1935; February 29, 1936
March 11, 1939 [WFVZ #172981; #172983; #4216]
  • Santa Rosa Island on March 12, 1934 [WFVZ #172985]
