LAMB, Chester Converse (1882-1965), Massachusetts-born ornithologist who moved first to Los Angeles in 1896 and then to Berkeley in 1900 where he attended high school and the University of California. Lamb married in 1905 and had two sons. For many years he was connected to the Outdoor Advertising Division of the B. F. Goodrich Rubber Company. In about 1920 he was able to devote all his time to his first interest of birds and mammals. In March 1925 Lamb received an appointment to the staff of the University of California’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology [MVZ] in Berkeley where he worked until 1932. He started as a field assistant and became Assistant Curator of Mammals.

Lamb visited San Miguel Island September 16-October 5, 1927 collecting both bird and mammal specimens with J. Elton Green. According to Lamb’s field notes, he “engaged Captain Charles Hansen to take us there at the price of $50, and also to bring us back for another $50.” A San Miguel Island fox they collected is at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology in Washington, D.C. Lamb’s field notes and photographs from this trip are on file at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, Berkeley. Dr. Joseph Grinnell named the Rufous-crowned Sparrow, Aimophila ruficeps lambi, in his honor.

July 8, 1909 [LAH]: “Long Beach, July 7. The party of sixteen members of the Cooper Club of California who went to Santa Barbara Island July 3 in Captain W. H. Graves’ launch Flyer, returned last night with a large assortment of relics and interesting discoveries and with a story of having weathered one of the sharpest storms known among the Channel Islands for some years. Several different times members of the party were thrown overboard while trying to make landings through the heavy surf, and once several of the men had to stay all of one night and the following day in a small cave, being unable to return to their boat. In the party were Harry Lelande, city clerk of Los Angeles; attorney Howard Robertson, O. W. and Arthur Howard, Dr. Otto J. Zahn, W. B. Judson, H. F. Hossack, Antonio Jay, Emerson Knight, Dr. Horace Gaylord, H. N. Lowe, W. S. McQuilling, Chester Lamb, C. S. Caldwell, Clarence B. Linton, Horace Linton, Captain W. H. Graves, Mate Granis Crandall and Chef Victor Sepulveda.”

Lamb, San Miguel Island, survey station established by Robert W. Knox in 1934. It is located “on Cardwell Point on a flat spot on the easterly end of the bluff along the south side of the island. About 30 feet eastward from the station, the ground slopes sharply downward to the beach. About 75 feet to the westward is a small ravine leading southward towards the beach. The ground in this locality has some short vegetation and is practically free of stones.” It was marked with a standard disk stamped LAMB 1934. This triangulation station appears on the San Miguel Island East topographic map. [UTM 10: North 3,767,815 East 747,767].
