Lincoln Nutting: Photographer and Naturalist
Born in Wellesley, MA, and educated at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Lincoln Nutting, Linc to his friends, came to Western New York in 1941 to work in the chemical industry in Niagara Falls. In his spare time, he pursued his interests in nature and photography, earning respect and praise for his photographs of insects. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Linc assembled a portfolio of Kodachrome slides of common local wildflowers and shrubs. Linc has graciously permitted the Eckert Herbarium to digitalize these photographs and make them available free to the public. Linc maintains active memberships in the Buffalo Audubon Society, the Buffalo Ornithological Society, and the Niagara Frontier Botanical Society and has been a long time supporter of the Central/Western New York chapter of the Nature Conservancy.
The Eckert Herbarium and Department of Biology are grateful to Mr. Nutting for permitting the reproduction and distribution of his fine photographs. Thanks also to Bruce Fox of Instructional Support Services for his patient effort in scanning the slides and preparing the web pages.
