Horace W. Wright was a naturalist and a Reverend who lived in Jamaica Plain (Massachusetts). His careful observations of New England birds were often (as here) recorded in various publications including "The Auk" (the organ of the American Ornithologists’ Union).

The collection was probably assembled by George Lyman Hinckley (a Masschusetts librarian) to whom these are inscribed.
