It is not a rare event when one is making a detailed study of ornithology to come upon the names of older students of the subject that are apparently unknown to the ornithological public. Their only contribution to the subject may have been a regional or local list published in some obscure periodical or a set of unpublished journals kept over a period of years. It is my purpose to make an attempt to fill in some of these "unknowns" in our knowledge of historical ornithology. This paper contains three biographies: J. H. Paarmann; Hugo H. Schroder; Burtis H. Wilson.
