DF Digital Files, 1957-2007
Audio and video files and other digital content stored on compact discs, DVDs, and other media found in the collection. Included are audio recordings of interviews with Wilson as well as a digitized copy of a recording of one of his lectures during his first year of teaching in 1957. Video recordings of Wilson include lectures and book talks at the Université de Montréal, Arizona State University, Utah Museum of Natural History, and other places, as well as his appearance in 2007 at a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference after winning a TED Prize. Other digital content in the series was sent to Wilson from various sources, including the American Prairie Foundation, Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, New York Botanical Garden, Queensland Museum in Brisbane, Australia, and Barry Bolton who sent Wilson drafts of his keys to world subfamilies and genera of ants in 1991. Analog sound recordings and film of Wilson have been transferred to the Library’s Motion Picture, Broadcast, and Recorded Sound Division where they are identified as part of this collection.
Arranged and described according to the series, containers, and folders in which the digital media were found.
