Biographical or historical data
Martha Maxwell was a naturalist and taxidermist. She was born Martha Ann Dartt on July 21, 1831 in Charleston, Tioga County, Pennsylvania and later married James Alexander Maxwell in Appleton, Wisconsin (1845). The couple moved to Denver City, Kansas Territory in 1860. She relocated to Boulder in 1868 and began to collect and prepare specimens for preservation. Maxwell first exhibited her completed specimens at the Third Annual Exposition of the Colorado Agricultural Society and was invited by Colorado Governor Alexander Hunt to represent Colorado at the St. Louis Fair (1870). She later received national recognition at the Centennial Exposition held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1876). Martha Maxwell died at Rockaway Beach, Long Island, New York on May 30, 1881.
