Covering dates 1868 - 1993
Held by Natural History Museum
Extent 9 series
Archival history The bulk of James Fisher's papers remained in the upstairs study in his house in Ashton, Northamptonshire, for many years after his death. Some small collections were distributed in 1971, when material concerning the rook was sent to the British Trust for Ornithology, and that concerning seabirds, including the fulmar, went to the Seabird Group of the Trust. Papers relating to his work as Deputy Chairman of the Countryside Commission was passed to the commission, and all the bird diaries and records of Fisher's uncle, A W Boyd, were given to Liverpool City Museum. A collection of bibliographical and other records relating to avian palaeontology were sent on long loan to the British Museum (Natural History) and have been incorporated into the present collection (D157-D207).
Margery Fisher's death in December 1992 led to the clearing and eventual sale of Ashton Manor. James Fisher's books were sold at auction by Bloomsbury Book Auctions on 16 September 1993, and the manuscripts were consigned to the same auction house early the following year. Messrs Bruce Coleman and John Burton, themselves naturalists and admirers of James Fisher, purchased the collection by private treaty and immediately presented it to the Library of The Natural History Museum, where it arrived in June 1994.
On arrival the Fisher Collection occupied 42 cardboard boxes and 97 box files.
Appraisal information With the agreement of the donors, the following disposals were made:
1. Certain purely personal papers and photographs were returned to the Fisher family.
2. Letters, notebooks and a scrapbook of A W Boyd were given to Liverpool Museum.
3. Sound recordings were transferred to the National Sound Archive and cine films to the British Film Institute.
4. Unannotated journal issues, offprints, maps and books were divided between the donors and the Museum libraries.
5. Unmarked printers proofs, duplicate typescripts and printed papers and some non-natural history material were destroyed.
These disposal reduced the bulk of the collection by about one third.
Creators Fisher, James Maxwell McConnell, 1912-1970, scientist and ornithologist
Arrangement The nine collection divisions emerged quite naturally from a study of the collection. The research files (C), housed in green box files and mostly bearing Fisher's own reference codes were separated first. The indexes and bibliographies (D) were physically distinct and occupied their own run of boxes. Newscuttings (H) and photographs (I) were housed, in some disorder, in nine large cardboard boxes, and clearly deserved their own divisions. Material relating to books and broadcasts (E) was also held in apparent disorder in a six large cardboard boxes and a plastic carrier bag. The files relating to organisations (G) could have been included among the research files, but were put into a separate division as their subject matter seemed distinct and they did not carry reference codes. Diaries and notebooks (B) occupied two boxes, and others were found in with other material. Publications artwork was separated from other book-related material because of its size, and a few files of more or less miscellaneous correspondence (A) was virtually all that remained.

Administrative history:
James Maxwell McConnell Fisher was born on 3 September 1912. His father, Kenneth, was headmaster of Oundle School and a keen naturalist, while his mother was sister of the Cheshire naturalist A W Boyd. Fisher records that he 'started bird-watching on father's knee at age of two'. He was a King's Scholar at Eton from 1926, and went up to Magdalen College, Oxford, to read medicine in 1931. He joined a University expedition to Spitsbergen in 1933, and it was this that persuaded his father to allow him to change from medicine to zoology. He graduated with 2nd class honours in 1935. James Fisher married Margery Turner in 1936 and, after a period spent teaching in Bishops Stortford, worked with Julian Huxley as assistant curator at the London Zoo from 1936-1939. During the war Fisher worked at the Bureau of Animal Population and later at the Edward Grey Institute in Oxford. He was one of the instigators of Collins' New Naturalists Library, and served on the Editorial Board. His own first book was Birds as Animals (1939), but it was Watching Birds, published as a Penguin paperback in 1940, that first made his name. Fisher records that he wrote it all in a fortnight and 'I distinctly remember writing parts of it to my wife in an eight horse power car in Gloucestershire'.
Seabirds became Fisher's main preoccupation, and he undertook extensive researches into the breeding distribution, history and population of the fulmar, and published a New Naturalist monograph on the subject in 1952. He followed this up with an important volume entitled Seabirds (1954), written jointly with R M Lockley. His studies of Rockall, Iceland, Spitsbergen and in the Orkney islands all followed the seabird theme. It is fitting that his memorial should have been the purchase of the Island of Colinsay as a nature reserve.
Fisher was best known to the general public as a broadcaster, and Nature Parliament (1946-1964) and Birds in Britain (1951-1963) were enormously popular in their day. He was equally at home on television, and was to be seen on the small screen, both on location and in the studio, from 1948 until the end of his life. Fisher was described in an obituary as 'one of the greatest ornithological advocates of his generation.'
Another important aspect of Fisher's life was his unstinting service to a large number of voluntary bodies concerned with zoology, ornithology, natural history and nature conservation. These included the British Trust for Ornithology, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the Northamptonshire Naturalists Trust, the National Parks Commission and many others. He was a tireless office holder, committee member and supporter.
James Fisher was killed in a car crash on 25 September 1970. He was 58.

C - Research files  [no ref. or date]

Appraisal information: Files that contained unannotated printed matter only were discarded during listing.


Arrangement: The files are arranged in four broad groups.
1. The general research files (C1-112) have been arranged under the broad headings of conservation, places, people and ornithology. Where files were originally in a labelled box, that label has been retained as a subheading in the list.
2. Files C113-C200 and C495-C500 are numbered according to the Universal Decimal Classification, and contain the widest imaginable range of subjects, from bows and arrows (C183) to uncontrolled toxics (C188). This arrangement has been broadly retained, although the files are not ordered beyond the decimal point.
3. A series of geographical files follow (C201-C293), the British files being numbered according to the Vice-county system.
4. Items C294-C381 are devoted to mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish, and contain annotated offprints and cuttings accompanying notes or bibliographic information. There are a number of annotated Red Data Book sheets and many Christmas and other greetings cards depicting animals. Items C382 to C495 belong to a taxonomic sequence for birds which is similar in organisation to the Peter's list. Most of the data contained in these files is observational information, often through correspondence, together with bibliographic information and illustrations. Correspondents are not generally indexed unless they were close associates of Fisher who appear elsewhere in the archive.


Contents:
James Fisher held most of his working papers in a series of 250 labelled subject files, that we call the Research Files. They contain a mixture of correspondence, manuscript and typescript drafts of published papers, scripts for broadcast and television, notes, drawings, photographs and printed papers. Fisher's own headings for the files have been retained where possible, and are given in italics. Unlabelled or poorly labelled files have been renamed

D - Indexes and Bibliographies  [no ref. or date]

Arrangement: Fisher used two system of numbering; a combination of numbers and letters for taxonomy and the Universal Decimal Classification system for general subjects. Neither system is applied consistently or throughout the class, and most of the bundles of slips are discrete units.
D1 to D87 and D150 to D154 are either labelled by Fisher or have been identified. D88 to D122 are separate bundles of slips which are not labelled and have not yet been identified. D123 to D149 were originally with the material which now forms class C (the research files) and although the bundles are not labelled the labelling on the box files gave a contents list. D123 to D148 are all separate bundles, some of which are as yet unidentified. D149 and D155 consist of slips which were loose in boxes and no attempt has been made to sort them. D157-D207 all relate to Fisher's work on fossil birds undertaken in the late 1960s and 1970, and were originally placed on permanent loan to the Museum by Crispin Fisher in 1971.
D1 to D87 have been arranged in a manner which broadly reflects that adopted for the research files: taxonomic material follows general subject material, and items which form a sequence have been kept together. In the taxonomic indexes for birds the Peter's system has been used. No further attempt has been made to establish the original order. Fisher's own titles are indicated by italics.

E - Publications and Broadcasts.  [no ref. or date]

Archival history:
Most of the papers in this division were found together in a series of boxes when the collection arrived in the Museum and, broadly speaking, they were clearly kept together by Fisher himself.

Appraisal information: Printers proofs and duplicate typescripts were discarded during appraisal of the collection, but otherwise the division is as received.


Arrangement: The division is subdivided into four parts: books, articles, radio broadcasts and television. Within each part the arrangement is, as far as possible, chronological.



Related information: Many more papers relating to publications and broadcasts are to be found in the research files (division C), as well as in the publications artwork (division F).

Contents:
This collection division contains files, correspondence and other papers directly related to Fisher's publications and broadcasts.

Appraisal information: Files consisting only of printed journals and other publications have been removed, but otherwise the collection is much as Fisher left it.


Arrangement: Files are arranged alphabetically by the name of the organisation, with a collection of single items at G87.



Related information: Other material related to societies and organisations will be found among the research files, for example files C99-C104 and C213-C225.
Most material relating to Fishers expeditions and other journeys is to be found in collection division B, Diaries and Notebooks, however the file relating to the Oxford University Arctic Expedition of 1933 is held at G88.

Contents:
This collection division contains the files kept by Fisher for the printed papers, notes and correspondence relating to the many societies and other groupings that he was involved with as officer, council or ordinary member. Prominent among the groups represented are the British Trust for Ornithology (G12), the National Parks Commission (G38-G44), the Northamptonshire Naturalists Trust (G49-G59) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (G62-G69).
