Peterson was born in Jamestown, New York on August 28, 1908. One of the inspirations for his field guide was the diagram of ducks that Ernest Thompson Seton made in Two Little Savages (1903).He co-wrote Wild America with James Fisher, and edited or wrote many of the volumes in the Peterson Field Guide series, on topics ranging from rocks and minerals to beetles to reptiles. He developed the Peterson Identification System, and is known for the clarity of both his illustrations of field guides and his delineation of relevant field marks.
Peterson was awarded the Linnaean Society of New York's Eisenmann Medal in 1986 and the United States Presidential Medal of Freedom. He received nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize and honorary doctorates from numerous American universities. The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History in Jamestown, New York is named in his honor.
