Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Bond (January 4, 1900 - February 14, 1989) was a leading American ornithologist whose name was appropriated by writer Ian Fleming for his fictional spy, James Bond. Bond was born in Philadelphia on January 4, 1900. He was a well known Ornithologist. His interest in natural history was spurred at an expedition his father, Francis E. Bond, undertook in 1911 to the Orinoco Delta. Bond was originally educated in Concord, New Hampshire, but after the death of his mother he moved with his father to England in 1914. There he studied at Harrow and later Cambridge University, where he obtained a B.A in 1922. After graduating he moved back to the United States and worked for a banking firm for three years in Philadelphia. An interest in natural history prompted him to quit and accept a place on an expedition to the Amazon run by the Academy of Natural Sciences.show more
