Biography Carrie Adeline Barbour
Barbour, Carrie Adaline:
(1862 Springfield, Indiana-1942 Lincoln, Nebraska)
A female paleontologist in a ‘man’s world’, Carrie Barbour had a major role in organizing and documenting archaeological expeditions in early 20th century Nebraska. In addition to scholarly writing, speaking on these subjects, and museum curatorial duties, she was affiliated for one year, 1893, with the University’s School of Fine Arts as an instructor of woodcarving and china painting. The paleontology part of her career came from working in tandem with her brother, Erwin Hinckley Barbour, who held professorships in geology and zoology and served as Nebraska’s official State Geologist, appointed by Governor John Thayer.
