The Ward-Coonley Meteorites at the American Museum of Natural History was a collection of 603 meteorite falls (1, 1911, p. 18). Curator L.P. Gratacap oversaw the collection. Scientist, explorer, and founder of Ward’s Natural History Science Establishment in Rochester, NY, Henry A. Ward and his wife, Lydia Avery Coonley loaned the collection to the Museum in 1901, where it was originally exhibited in seven cases in the Hall of Geology and Invertebrate Palaeontology. The collection moved to the Foyer in 1910. Ward died in 1906 and in 1912, Lydia Coonley sold the collection to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago (2, p. 277-278; 3, 1910, p. 46).
