BROOKVILLE SOCIETY OF NATURAL HISTORY.


The Brookville Society of Natural History was organized in the month of February, 1881, and one year from the date of its organization was incorporated under the laws of Indiana.
In membership, in name, and in actual results -- enlarged interest in the study of nature, the establishment of a valuable museum, and the founding of a large and excellent library, the society has largely exceeded the expectations of its originators. What has been accomplished justifies the endeavor now made to issue a Bulletin which shall proclaim the worth of the Society, and afford such a medium of literary exchange as will bring it into relationship with scientists and scientific institutions all over the world. As may be seen from the list herein published, all departments of study in natural history are represented, and measures taken for the pursuit of research in all, under the supervision of competent curators. The local field of the Society presents the necessary material for each and every department to an extent in variety and abundance exceeding any other portion of the state. In the prosecution of its work the society has endeavored to make itself profitable to the community at large by means of scientific lectures given by lecturers invited from abroad.
It is to be hoped that this Bulletin is the first of many similar publications concerning our local Natural History. It will serve to strengthen us in the esteem of old acquaintances, and to make us new ones, of whom, one and all, we ask hearty co-operation.

BROOKVILLE, FRANKLIN COUNTY, INDIANA.
