E. W. Nelson and E. A. Goldman
The Flickr set documents the field work of Edward William Nelson and Edward Alphonso Goldman. The two men worked for the US Biological Survey and collected in the field together for 14 years. Much of their joint collecting occurred in Mexico during the turn of the twentieth century. Images were selected to demonstrate the range of natural history and contemporary life they documented during those years.
