Biographical notes:

William Lyman Underwood was a naturalist and photographer with wide-ranging interests.

Known for his wildlife stories and photographs, Underwood also studied bacteriology and entomology, and wrote reports, illustrated with his own photographs, on insect pests such as mosquitoes, houseflies and gypsy moths. Underwood, who lived in Belmont, Mass., traveled regularly to Maine to photograph wildlife; his guide was Joe Mell, a Passamaquoddy Indian, the subject of the first two lectures.
