Biographical:
Robert Porter Allen is a noted naturalist and ornithologist. Born in 1905 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Allen began working for the Audubon society in 1930, first as a librarian and then as a field biologist. Known for his precise fieldwork and impassioned conservation activism, he is credited with rescuing the Whooping Crane and the Roseate Spoonbill species from extinction. Allen's close ties with Florida began in 1939 when he moved to Key Largo to the study the Roseate Spoonbill on behalf of the National Audubon Society. That same year, he founded the Audubon Research Center in Tavernier, FL, now known as Everglades Science Center. Robert Porter Allen retired from National Audubon service in 1960 after serving as the Society's first Director of Research. Shortly after his death in 1964, the U.S. Park Service recognized Allen's contributions to Florida conservation by naming the Bob Allen Keys in his honor.

abstract 520$a Abstract This collection consists of the research materials left behind by renowned ornithologist field researcher Robert Porter Allen. While doing research for the Audubon Society, Allen researched and wrote extensively on the flamingo, roseate spoonbill, and whooping crane, among others. His groundbreaking research on the whooping crane, including his identification of Canada's Slave Lake as the crane's northern nesting place, is acknowledged to have brought the species back from sure extinction. The approximately 30,000 pages of material includes bird counts, field notes, sketches, photos, reports, correspondence, and other materials documenting Robert Porter Allen's research, mostly between 1940 and 1950.

Robert Porter Allen is a noted naturalist and ornithologist. Born in 1905 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Allen began working for the Audubon society in 1930, first as a librarian and then as a field biologist. Known for his precise fieldwork and impassioned conservation activism, he is credited with rescuing the Whooping Crane and the Roseate Spoonbill species from extinction. Allen's close ties with Florida began in 1939 when he moved to Key Largo to the study the Roseate Spoonbill on behalf of the National Audubon Society. That same year, he founded the Audubon Research Center in Tavernier, FL, now known as Everglades Science Center. Robert Porter Allen retired from National Audubon service in 1960 after serving as the Society's first Director of Research. Shortly after his death in 1964, the U.S. Park Service recognized Allen's contributions to Florida conservation by naming the Bob Allen Keys in his honor.
