Abstract

During the first 30 years of The American Society of Mammalogists (ASM), a small but notable group of women made significant contributions to the Society and to mammalogy in general. The limited opportunity for women in mammalogy at the time of the founding of the ASM in 1919 is evidenced by the observation that only 16 of 435 Charter Members were women. To highlight the contributions of early women mammalogists, we describe the accomplishments of 23 women in short biographical treatments. To facilitate our presentations of activities and accomplishments, each woman was placed into one of six categories, although some individuals could have been listed under more than one category. The six categories were research in the field, research in the museum, research in the laboratory, service to the ASM, other naturalists involved in the ASM, and relevant nonmembers.
