Biography/History

Archibald James Campbell was an ornithologist. He was an active member of the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria, specialising in ornithology. He was a founding member of the Royal Australian Ornithological Union and was twice elected President, once in 1909 and again in 1928. In 1900 Campbell published his book Nests and eggs of Australian birds, which became a standard work on Australian ornithology. For many years he was editor and co-editor of the Union's journal, The Emu. Campbell was also a founding member of the Wattle Club in 1899, and involved in the establishment of the Australian Wattle Day League in 1911. He was made a life member of the League in 1912.
