Sidney Bahrt Ornithology Photographs on Display

Selections from the Sid Bahrt Maine Ornithologist Collection are on display in the corridor of Fogler Library’s first floor.  Bahrt was an ornithologist and avid photographer living in the Washington County town of Pembroke. Originally an advertising executive from Manhattan, Bahrt sold his marketing company in the late 1960s and moved to Maine to pursue his personal interests. Bahrt was also the author of A Wilderness of Birds: Portraits of Birds by Sidney Bart published by Doubleday and Company in 1974. The images in the exhibition are from the pre-digital camera era. They are prints from thirty-five millimeter Kodak Ektachrome color slides.
