The Schmidt Museum of Natural History contains a comprehensive collection of approximately 600 taxidermy mounts of birds, mammals, reptiles, and fish from Kansas. A research collection of more than 2,500 bird and mammal skins from various parts of the U.S. is maintained for advanced study and research. The museum mounts are the work of Richard Schmidt whose career began as a school boy in 1925 and culminated with his retirement as taxidermist at Emporia State University (then Emporia Kansas State College). The specimens in the museum are grouped taxonomically and allow visitors to see clearly the color and structural details useful in identifying species. Other interesting features include displays of rare specimens collected in Kansas, invertebrates, an egg collection, unusual color patterns of certain species, techniques for preparing museum mounts, and a tallgrass prairie diorama.

http://vertnet.org/resources/norms.html KTSC is currently in the process of digitizing the collection in a Specify database and publishing data as it becomes available. Although KSTC routinely updates their data, outdated taxonomic names, mistaken specimen identifications, erroneous localities, and other problems inevitably occur. Investigators should verify data by direct examination of specimens, and notify KSTC if discrepancies are found.
