(A84-75; A11-55)
This Record Sub-Group contains professional and personal papers and records created, received, and collected by William Hanna Elder during his academic and professional career as a student at the University of Wisconsin and as a faculty member at the University of Missouri. The papers and records in this Sub-Group include correspondence, memoranda, notes, research data, journals, reports, publications, teaching records, student work, photographic prints and negatives, and a few research samples and specimens.

Biographical Note

William Hanna Elder was born in Oak Park, Illinois, on December 24th, 1913. He received a Bachelor's degree in Science Education in 1936, a Master's degree in 1938, and a Ph.D. in Zoology (dissertation on Rabbit Endocrinology) in 1942, all from the University of Wisconsin. Elder married Nina Leopold, daughter of naturalist and conservationist Aldo Leopold, in 1941. His second marriage was to Glennis Fast in 1973.

In 1941 Elder began work as a game technician for the Illinois Natural History Survey. From 1943 to 1945 he held a position in Pharmacology (Chemical Warfare) in the Toxicity Laboratory at the University of Chicago. In 1945 Elder began his teaching career at the University of Missouri as an Assistant Professor of Zoology. He attained the rank of Associate Professor in 1947 and that of Professor in 1951, serving as department chairman from 1950 to 1953. Elder was named the William J. Rucker Professor of Zoology in 1954. He retired in 1984 as Professor of Forestry, Fisheries, and Wildlife and was distinguished as Professor Emeritus. His teaching interests included wildlife management, range and wildlife habitat management, ornithology, and mammalogy.

In general terms William Elder's research interest was the physiology of wild birds and mammals as related to their productivity, populations, and management. Specific research ranged widely, however, and included ornithology, hunting pressures in waterfowl, fertility in waterfowl, bats in Missouri, endangered species, the Hawaiian Nene goose (funded in 1956 by a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Yale-Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum Fellowship), and elephants in Zambia (funded by a 1968 National Science Foundation Grant). He published more than 50 technical papers and many other general articles. In 1964 Elder received patent rights for an oral chemosterilant for nuisance birds. The patent was assigned to the University of Missouri and licensed to G. D. Searle and Company, Chicago, Illinois. Subsequently the patent was assigned to the Avitrol Corporation, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

William Elder served on the Board of Directors of the Missouri Nature Conservancy and was awarded the organization's Oak Leaf Service Award in 1975. He was a member of numerous other nature and conservation organization, including the Wilson Ornithological Society, the Wildlife Society, the Conservation Federation of Missouri, and the L-A-D Foundation.

William Hanna Elder died in Columbia, Missouri on August 14, 2006, at the age of 92.

Series Descriptions:

This Record Sub-Group is divided into five series.

Series One - Personal contains general records and documents of Elder's life, including those pertaining to his education.
Series One is further divided into two Sub-Series:

  • Sub-Series One - Personal Documents contains documents, records, and photographs related to William Elder's childhood, genealogy, and activities, including diplomas, honors and awards, popular press accounts, and publications productivity. It also contains his private journals, which include both personal and wildlife observations and information.
  • Sub-Series Two - Graduate Education contains material Elder saved from his graduate education at the University of Wisconsin, including course work, seminar presentations, and graduate teaching files.
    Research for his PhD dissertation can be found under Series 3, Sub-Series 1 - Rabbit Endocrinology.

Series Two - Professional Experience contains a wide variety of material relating to Elder's professional activities with the Illinois Natural History Survey, the University of Missouri, and various academic publications.
Series Two is further divided into five Sub-Series:

  • Sub-Series One - Illinois Natural History Survey contains reports, data, maps, photographs, and correspondence related to Elder's work with the Illinois Natural History Survey as a Game Biologist from 1941-1943.
    Additional data, research, and correspondence pertaining to the Illinois Natural History Survey can be found in Series Four: Publication and Research. If a clear topical connection was found between later research and work done for the Illinois Natural History Survey, those file folders will be located in that particular Publication and Research Sub-Series.
  • Sub-Series Two - Employment at the University of Missouri contains material from Elder's years of employment with MU between 1945 and 1984. Files include Elder's university appointments and salary, his university research grants, committee participation, administrative records, documents about the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife, and various correspondence with university faculty and administration.
  • Sub-Series Three - University Teaching contains materials related to the courses Elder taught at the University of Missouri, including Wildlife Management, Range and Wildlife Habitat Management, Ornithology, Mammalogy, and Zoology. Records consist of course syllabi, schedules, hand-outs, lectures, seminars, assignments, examinations, field trips, and student evaluations.
  • Sub-Series Four - Student Records contains material concerning Elder's students.
    Sub-Series Four is further subdivided into two Sub-Sub-Series:
    • Sub-Sub-Series One - Student Work contains documents and course work produced by Elder's students, including course assignments, course examinations, course projects, reports on various wildlife, papers, and graduate school examinations.
    • Sub-Sub-Series Two - Student Files and Correspondence contains Elder's files for specific students with whom he corresponded personally and collaborated professionally after graduation. Records consist of advising forms, course work, examinations, research reports, publications and correspondence. Also included in this Sub-Sub-Series are Elder's collection of student publications and letters of recommendation.
  • Sub-Series Five - Peer Review and Editorial Board Service contains reviews and correspondence regarding various papers submitted to the Journal of Wildlife Management, the Journal of Mammology, and the Transactions of the Missouri Academy of Sciences. The Sub-Series also contains wildlife book reviews and documents relating to Elder's service on the editorial board of the Journal of Wildlife Management from 1956 to 1968.

Series Three - Publication and Research contains a broad range of material related to Elder's various research projects.
Series Three is further divided into ten Sub-Series that were designated for topical continuity. Although some overlap may be observed between Sub-Series, the designations were made for identifiably disparate research projects:

  • Sub-Series One - Rabbit Endocrinology contains Elder's doctoral research about the seasonal changes in body weight and the endocrine glands of cottontail rabbits, including notes, data, collected papers, and correspondence.
  • Sub-Series Two - Hunting Pressure and Lead Poisoning Effects on Waterfowl Populations contains material from Elder's studies of the effects of hunting and lead shot on waterfowl populations in North America and Europe. The records consist of grant information, notes, data, collected papers, lectures, photographs, x-rays, fluoroscopy information, correspondence, and publications.
  • Sub-Series Three - Hawaiian Goose (Nene) Research, Conservation and Publication contains material related to the study and conservation of the Hawaiian Goose (Nene), including fellowship and grant information, notes, data, field journals, collected papers, reports, conservation proposals, maps, photos, slides, correspondence, manuscripts, and publications. At the time of Elder's study, the wild population of the Nene had dropped to an estimated count of less than 50 and was highly endangered.
  • Sub-Series Four - Research on Bird Fertility and Patent of Ornitrol contains Elder's pioneering research in bird fertility and patenting of the first oral contraceptive for nuisance bird control called Ornitrol, including licensing and royalty information. The records consist of notes, data, collected papers, field trials in Missouri and New York City, correspondence, manuscripts, publications, and legal documents.
  • Sub-Series Five - Research on Big Game in Africa contains material related to Elder's study of big game populations in Africa in the later half of the 1960's. During this time, he traveled to Zambia, Bechuanaland (Botswana) and Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), pursuing a wide range of research regarding African Antelopes, the Elephant and the Hippopotamus. The records consist of grant information, travel receipts, field journals, notes, data, maps, collected papers, photographs, x-rays, correspondence, travel brochures, seminar and lecture material, manuscripts, and publications.
  • Sub-Series Six - Bat and Cave Research contains grant information, notes, data, collected papers and legal documents, conservation proposals, correspondence, and manuscripts regarding Missouri bat populations and cave ecology.
    Topics in this Sub-Series have a large degree of overlap between each other and have therefore been broadly grouped together.
  • Sub-Series Seven - Ornithological Banding and Research contains diverse material regarding Elder's ornithological interests and research, especially concerning waterfowl. Specifically, this Sub-Series includes Elder's research with Bluebirds, Canadian Geese, Chickadees, game birds, bird migration patterns, the preen gland of birds, the Tufted Titmouse and Woodpeckers, and others. This records consist of bird banding information and permits, notes, data, field journals, maps, collected papers, photographs, correspondence, manuscripts, and publications.
  • Sub-Series Eight - General Wildlife Research contains Elder's interest, research, and correspondence regarding a variety of wildlife topics. Some topics, such as mink ageing, mammal distribution in Missouri and Raccoon populations, contain notes, data, maps, collected papers, correspondence, manuscripts, and publications. Other topics in this Sub-Series may only contain correspondence.
  • Sub-Series Nine - Wildlife Research Stations contains information, research, and correspondence relating to various wildlife research stations. The records consist of notes, data, field journals, seminars, photographs, newsletters, brochures, and correspondence.
  • Sub-Series Ten - Supplementary Research Materials contains documents that Elder collected over the years that do not reflect any original research or correspondence. Many of these file contain only single documents or general collections of wildlife publications.

Series Four - Organizational and Civic activities contains material relating to Elder's involvement with national and local organizations, as well as activities regarding state and local government. Contains newsletters, reports, meeting programs, proposals, committee documents, lectures and correspondence.

Series Five - Correspondence contains some of Elder's personal and professional correspondence with individuals. The correspondence series is arranged alphabetically according to surname. Some of this correspondence may also contain information on various research projects, depending on the correspondents. The Series also contains Elder's letters to politicians and general inquiries to Elder.
Note to Researcher: It should be noted that while this separate Series has been established for correspondence, additional correspondence can be found in all the other Series as necessitated by both original and logical order.
