KIMBALL, Henry Hungerford (1877-1945) was an ornithological collector who worked in localities primarily in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. He visited San Clemente, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz Islands in 1914:

Guiraca caerulea lazuna. Western Blue Grosbeak. Two males observed feeding on wild oats near Mosquito Harbor, San Clemente Island, April 21, 1914. Dendroica townsendi. Townsend Warbler. A male secured near the same place on April 18, 1914. Riparia riparia. Bank swallow. A considerable colony of some kind of swallow, certainly not Petrochelidon, and apparently bank swallows, were present about an outlying rock at Alamos Landing, Santa Cruz Island, California, during June 1914.” [Condor XXIV:97, May 1922].

Kimball registered for the World War I Draft Registration on September 12, 1918 when he was 41 and living in Long Beach, California. He listed his occupation as naturalist working for himself; his place of employment as Paradise, Cochise, Arizona; eyes blue and hair brown. Kimball spent the last ten years of his life in Matagorda, Texas, where he died of a cerebral hemorrhage on February 23, 1945 at age 67. His sister, Alice Kimball Meyrs (1873-1950) inherited Kimball’s collection of 15,146 bird skins and numerous sets of eggs, which she sold to Dr. Max Minor Peet in 1945. Dr. Peet donated the Kimball collection to the University of Michigan, Museum of Zoology.
