Scope and content

Professor Falls was much sought after as a speaker, both at academic conferences and other functions and by the general public. He was very obliging so over the course of more than fifty years he gave a large number of talks. Some of them are included in this series. The arrangement is chronological, and the files contain, in addition to the addresses themselves, notes, correspondence, and some background material.

The talks Professor Falls gave ranged across the spectrum of his research. Though he gave a number on small mammals, his most popular ones were on bird songs (see box 036(25)), for example] but not only to the general public. He gave a number of papers on his research on the western and eastern meadowlarks and the white-throated sparrow, in particular, at conferences ranging from those of the American Ornithologists Union and the International Ornithologists Committee (he chaired the scientific program of 19th congress of the latter in Ottawa in 1986 but also gave papers at Oxford, Berlin and Moscow) to the Wilson Ornithological Society. He was in close contact with many universities who invited him to give lectures, seminars and participate in field studies. Amongst these were the University of British Columbia, where he gave several seminars on birds in 1973, Rutgers University, Rockefeller University, Cornell, and the University of Wisconsin (1986). But he also was available for less formal presentations to students, especially at the University of Toronto, where he gave talks to student clubs and through the Division of University Extension, and across southern Ontario.
