Figure C. J. ALBRECHT Noted Explorer, Photographer, Zoologist and Animal Sculptor of the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago. 22 Expeditions from Africa to Arctic Alaska. Outstanding and Thrilling Motion Pictures REDPATH BUREAU C. J. ALBRECHT Noted Explorer, Zoologist, Photographer and Animal Sculptor of the Field Museum of Natural History C. J. ALBRECHT after graduating from the Iowa State University, served successively as a faculty member of the University of Washington, as curator of zoological exhibits in the State Museum in Seattle, and as a staff member of the American Museum of New York and Field Museum, Chicago. Mr. Albrecht is both an explorer and a zoologist. His scientific research and collecting include a series of twenty-two expeditions that extend from arctic Alaska and Siberia to the jungles of Africa. He is a crack shot, not only killing big game with a rifle, but, on one occasion, an American bison with a bow and arrow. As a photographer of wild life he was awarded first prize in an international competition on outdoor photography. As a sculptor of animals and a taxidermist he has prepared many habitat groups, including the famed African Water Hole and Su-Lin, the Giant Panda. About the African Water Hole, Field Museum News says: One of the finest groups in Field Museum was recently completed and opened to the public. This group, called the 'African Water Hole', is by far the largest animal group in the Museum, and, so far as known, the largest in the world. With this marvelous background Mr. Albrecht is eminently qualified to tell the story behind the scenes in an interesting and fascinating manner. He has, also, the most unusual still and motion pictures to illustrate the dramatic presentation of his lecture subjects. Wins Highest Praise as a Platform Speaker The Brooklyn Museum His previous lectures at this Museum on the Pacific Northwest, Laysan Island, and other subjects have been eminently satisfactory and we shall be glad to reserve for him a booking during the next season. Academy of Sciences, Philadelphia, Harold T. Green, Director Ludwick Series of Lectures Legend and Romance of the Northwest Indian was a lecture greatly enjoyed by all of us. Its unique features and beautiful as well as unusual motion pictures placed it among the best we ever had at the Academy. Milwaukee Public Museum, S. A. Barrett, Director Our four audiences who heard his fine lectures on the fur seal, were highly pleased both with the informative lecture itself and with the very fine illustrations and motion pictures you used. It was a real pleasure and I trust that we may soon have another one of his lectures on our course. North Park College, Chicago, Walter J. Moberg Mr. Albrecht is to be congratulated for such excellent results. His lectures well received, and the educational value of the talk was enhanced by frequent bits of humor that made it entertaining as well. I am happy to recommend him. State Teachers College, Superior, Wis., Kathryn Ohman An interesting speaker as well as a charming personality. State Teachers College, Moorhead, Minn., R. B. McLean, Pres. His pictures were engrossing. Mr. Albrecht's experiences were real and vital to him, and he made them so to the audience. University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minn., Thomas A. M. Teeter Good. I would not hesitate to recommend his lecture. Goodwin Institute, Memphis, Tenn., C. C. Ogilvie First class in every way. Fine, clear, enthusiastic speaker. Splendid personality. Captured us completely. The C.J. Albrecht Lecture Series Ottiga, the Master of the Harem or the Life History of the Alaskan Fur Seal. Filmed in Alaska, the home of glaciers, totem poles and the midnight sun, the story of Ottiga vividly and dramatically portrays the life cycle of a great harem bull from tiny puppyhood until master of a hundred cows. Traveling nine months of the year along our Pacific coast, the great seal herd of two million spends three months on the Pribilofs, Treasure Isles of the Mists, to bear their young and breed. Here the law of the herd is the survival of the fittest. Excitement ranges from birth to death as Ottiga's struggle goes on, seeking nourishment, learning to swim, dodging killer whales and poachers, running the gauntlet of the fur Seal industry and arriving at the pinnacle of power by terrific fights. A story that is one of the seven wonders of nature. (Illustrated with motion pictures) Round the Year with Wild Life. A travel tale of nature through the four seasons. Familiar things seldom photographed. Booming prairie chickens, dancing grouse, singing tree frogs, fighting lizards, hatching woodcock, cocoon spinning caterpillars, snowshoe rabbits, shy fawns, bold moose, microscopic and telescopic marvels of the game of forest and stream, and feathered friends of the air. Nature in all her moods, from tranquility to turmoil, from moonbeams to blizzards. A lecture of beauty, filmed by one who has been a nature lover for a life time. (Illustrated with motion pictures) By Caravan Through the Lost Kingdom. A year's Safari through Abyssinia, Kenya Colony and Tanganyika, collecting material for the huge Water-hole group in Field Museum. A guest of Haile Selassie; viewing his golden treasures, roaming his palace grounds. A caravan of seventy camels and mules and sixty men across plains and mountains toward the Southern Cross. Weary and exhausted; pack animals dying in their tracks; that great cry for water; facing bandits and dangerous game; photographing wild tribes; hobnobbing with killers and princes; stopping death-dealing charges of big game. A caravan trek that cannot be repeated in a land that breathes of mystery and is reminiscent of Biblical times. (Illustrated with slides and motion pictures) Legend and Romance of the Northwest Indian or Wild Life of the Pacific Northwest. Covering a period of twelve years' intimate acquaintance and association with the Indian and wild life of the Northwest while a member of the faculty of the University of Washington, and curator of the State Museum, Seattle.
