We have 13 game bird prints, stamped on the envelope "American Wildlife Institute". We think they are from the 30's or 40's and would like to know their value.

RE: American Wildlife Institute Prints

The American Wildlife Institute was a non-profit in the late 1930s, which later became the Wildlife Management Institute, which is still around. I googled "American Wildlife Institute" in Google Book/Magazine search and found the information in a 1985 issue of Field and Stream.

RE: American Wildlife Institute Prints

Good find. The only prints I could locate on a search were two bird prints sold for about $12 U.S. in the U.K. on their Ebay site. If you go to the site ideefixe linked, you can find a lot of info and contact info there, and maybe even get some answers of when they were published and who did the artwork. The pics I saw were quite nice.

I'd call their PR office (media relations), find out if they have an archive or library and ask about the prints. Who knows--they may want to buy them from you!
