Annie M. Alexander tried a variety of academic interests in schools from Hawaii to Massachusetts including explorations in Europe. Her focus eventually was sparked by Dr. Merriman at the University of California at Berkeley. First, she funded several of his fossil hunting expeditions. Then in 1901 she participated in a California expedition. Two Ichthyosaur skeletons were named after her. Annie Alexander then decided to fund a Museum of Vertebrate Zoology to house her collection at the University of California. One year later she helped fund the university’s Department of Paleontology and by 1921 she had established the Museum of Paleontology.

Annie Alexander died in 1950, and her contributions were recognized by naming two mammals, two birds, six fossils, and two plants after her.
