WILLIAM BEEBE. Signature: "William Beebe" on verso of 5½x3¼ postcard. 1-cent postcard, addressed to E.H. Lloyd in Iowa, postmarked New York, N.Y., August 21, 1944. Charles William Beebe (1877-1962), a naturalist who taught himself taxidermy while still a teenager, was affiliated with the Bronx Zoo in New York for over 50 years. Beginning in 1905, he wrote a series of popular travel books detailing his studies as a naturalist. Originally focused on birds, Beebe shifted his research to deep sea creatures, beginning helmeted dives in the late 1920s. In 1932, Beebe and Otis Barton, the inventor of their "bathyscape", dived to a then record depth of 3,028 feet near Bermuda. Lightly creased and soiled. Pencil note (unknown hand) at lower margin. Lightly shaded at upper margin on verso. Irregular upper edge. Overall, fine condition.
