Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Arthur W. Clime (1885-1962) worked as general assistant to Clarence Moore from 1906-1910, joining him for excavations on the Ouachita and Mississippi Rivers and ancient cemeteries of Arkansas and Mississippi. While working with Moore, Clime collected animal specimens and examples of modern stonework, which he donated to the Zoological Society of Philadelphia and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. Shortly after finishing his work with Moore, Arthur Clime moved to Washington, DC, with his new wife, Louise B. Wollersheim. There, he worked as secretary and laboratory assistant for Alexander Graham Bell at his Volta Bureau, conducting research into deafness. In 1917, he began working for the Federal government, later becoming an inspector and then manager of public buildings and parks with the Public Buildings Service (part of the General Services Administration).
