Carnegie Museum of Natural History often benefits from the personal interests of volunteers and former employees. George M. Sutton became the Assistant Curator of Ornithology in 1918, at the tender age of 20. From 1918-1925, he only went on two expeditions to the Far North, but they were enough to allow him to fall in love with the Arctic. After leaving the museum to become State Ornithologist of Pennsylvania in 1925, he took frequent sabbaticals and made many trips to the Arctic. Thanks to Sutton’s personal love for the Arctic, the Museum was able to add fine specimens to its collection over the course of many years.
