Cape, Japan, Java, Ceylon. {SAm not mentioned } Often ridiculed during and shortly after his life, commonly quoting such "Thunbergisms" as: "Water is the element which makes sea journeys both outside and inside of the Netherlands so nimble and comfortable." or his comment on first entering France: "To me it could not but seem both strange and ridiculous to hear Burghers and Farmers all speak that, in other places so noble, language."

Traylor, Melvin Alvah ,Jr. 1915-2008 FMNH Email note (2008.02.13) announcing his death (2008.02.11):
Mel Traylor, curator emeritus at the Field Museum, died at home over the weekend, at the age of 92. Mel may be best known for his collaboration with the late Raymond Paynter on the series of gazetteers for South American countries, works that now form an important backbone for many of our distributional and taxonomic studies, and for which Traylor and Paynter were awarded the Elliot Coues Award by the American Ornithologists' Union in 2001. But Mel published extensively over his career, not only on birds of the neotropics but also on birds of Africa (including authoring a major monograph on the birds of Angola), of China, of Nepal, and of many other parts of the world. He hated to see a worthwhile project that was left incomplete, and he was not afraid of tough challenges; it was no surprise that Mel was chosen to revise the tyrannid chapter for the Peters checklist series, a task that he completed successfully and that led to many productive side papers on tyrant flycatcher taxonomy. Mel described a number of bird taxa, including at least one species (Cisticola restricta, of Africa); and at least one species, Tolmomyias traylori, was named in his honor. Mel was a careful worker in the museum, with a keen eye for detail, but also was cautious in interpreting his results. The collections at the Field Museum contain several specimens that Mel recognized "didn't fit," but in the absence of additional material, he refrained from describing them; his instincts were borne about when the specimens that Mel "flagged" later were described by others as new species, including at least two specimens of "his" Tolmomyias (!).

As a Marine Corp officer, Mel was severely injured during the battle of Tarawa in the Pacific theatre during World War II, where he lost one eye and suffered arm and upper body wounds during the famous beach assault. He returned to Chicago and resumed his volunteer participation in the affairs of the Field Museum's bird division, where he later became employed as a curator along with Austin Rand and Emmet (Bob) Blake. During the last few years of his employment he served as Chairman of the Zoology Department, and was as gracious and helpful an administrator as he always was a colleague and friend.

Mel continued to visit the Field Museum for many years after he retired, until this was no longer practical. He always was interested in the work of his younger colleagues, and did his best to keep up with advances in the field. His deep curiosity about the world around him, his good humor, and his gentle spirit were a source of pleasure and inspiration to all who knew him.
