Elected first vice-president

Here’s a photograph from the November 21 1927 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of an ornithologist based in Toronto.

James Henry Fleming (1872-1940) had been a fellow of the American Ornithologists’ Union since 1916. He went on to become its president from 1932 to 1935. He also became a British Empire Member of the British Ornithological Union, Corresponding Member of the Zoological Society of London, and Membre d’Honneur Étranger of the Société Ornithologique et Mammalogique de France. Upon his death, his specimen collection and research library was donated to the Royal Ontario Museum.
