Falcipennis canadensis isleibi Dickerman & Gustafson, 1996

Just to start. In here p. 214 footnote we can read:

Quote:
This paper is dedicated to the memory of MALCOLM E. “PETE” ISLEIB (14 December 1938–18 June 1993), our friend and colleague, for over three decades a peerless and tireless alaskan field ornithologist.
The OD Dickerman, R. W., and J. Gustafson. 1996. The Prince of Wales spruce grouse: A new subspecies from southeastern Alaska. Western Birds 27:41–47 to find here claims:

Quote:
This subspecies is named in honor of the late Malcolm E. (Pete) Isleib, outstanding birdwatcher, collector, contributor to our knowledge of the Alaskan avifauna, and friend to the Alaskan ornithological community
All in accordance with the The Eponym Dictionary of Birds.

Malcolm E. 'Pete' Isleib (1938–1993) of Cordova, Alaska, was an American ornithologist, commercial fisherman and conservationist. He co-wrote Birds of the North Gulf Coast-Prince William Sound region, Alaska (1973). He died in an accident while re-fitting his fishing vessel.
So only the mystery is middle name E.. Maybe anyone here is able to contribute this last small piece.

According to the book Exploring Alaska's Birds, by Emanuel & Matz (2001), he's: "Malcolm Edward 'Pete' Isleib".

Yes, it seems his middle name. Probably born in Hartford, Connecticut.
