Dorothy maintained a high standard of editing and quality. One of her classic contributions to Bird Observer was her article “On Records of Birds,” published in Volume 12, Number 1 in February 1984. Although digital photography now makes documentation of bird identification easier, this article is still a standard for reviewing the aspects of writing a rare bird report. The article details the history of record keeping of birds in Massachusetts, the certain minimal data required of a report, and a list of difficult species that can be confusing. Dorothy loved to travel, was a friend to many, and was an enthusiastic field companion. She will be missed.
