Locations of collection primarily in Lake Daviembu, also include Sturt Island, Daru and Palmer Junction Camp. Austin Loomer Rand (1905-1982) was a Canadian ornithologist. His association with the American Museum of Natural History began with the Mission zoologique franco-anglo-américaine à Madagascar, the results of which would form his Ph.D. thesis. He also met life-long friend and collaborator Richard Archbold at this time and would continue to participate in and co-lead the first three Archbold Expeditions to New Guinea. He would also help Archbold develop the Archbold Biological Station in Florida and would ultimately retire there. The majority of his professional career was spent in curatorial capacities at the Ornithology department of the Field Museum in Chicago. en_US
