Champlain Society Report of the Secretary, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1886-87

Contributed by Mount Desert Island Historical Society


Edward L. Rand, Secretary of the Champlain Society, reported the group's meetings that took place during the winter months of 1886-1887 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Champlain Society was a group of Harvard University students who camped, explored, conducted scientific research, and socialized on Mount Desert Island. Areas of study included botany, geology, ornithology, and zoology.

In addition to the attendance report of the five meetings and a treasury assessment, Mr. Rand noted an excursion in Massachusetts Bay in 1886, a list of published titles authored by the Champlain Society members, and missing books and maps from the group's library.
