Ward's Staff

This list of employees of Ward's Natural Science Establishment was compiled from the Rochester City directories (1862-1899). In some cases it is clear that the name of an individual appears with different spellings; where that is not clear, two listings have been made. The specialty of the individual also varies from year to year, and those variations are noted below.
