Alfred Brazier Howell (1886-1961)

HOWELL, Alfred Brazier “Bray” (1886-1961), Maryland-born ornithologist and mammalogist interested primarily in the comparative anatomy and morphology of birds and mammals. He attended the Sheffield Scientific School in 1905-1906 and Yale University for a year in 1908. In 1910 Howell and his mother moved to Pasadena, California. Soon after their arrival, Howell began studying the avifauna of the California Channel Islands and Los Coronados of Mexico, which, at the urging of Joseph Grinnell, resulted in the publication of his first long monograph in 1917. Various members of the Cooper Ornithological Society contributed their island information to Howell for this work, and he also used the extensive library of W. Lee Chambers in its preparation. During his studies, Howell accumulated a large private collection of birds and mammals, and spent time in the field with O. W. Howard, A. J. Van Rossem, Chester Lamb and Lawrence Huey. In the summer of 1926 Howell and Huey spent two weeks studying whales at the commercial whaling station in Trinidad, California. During his life, Howell wrote four books and about 180 published contributions about mammals, birds, and anatomy. Ultimately Howell’s collections were sold to his friend, Donald R. Dickey.
