Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records consist of administrative subject files and professional correspondence documenting the administration and activities of the Department of Entomology. Most of the records were created during the tenures of Chairmen Paul D. Hurd, Jr., 1971-1976; Donald R. Davis, 1976-1981; and Wayne N. Mathis, 1981-1987. A smaller portion of the records was created by earlier chairmen John Frederick Gates Clarke, 1963-1965, and Karl V. Krombein, 1965-1971, as well as by recent Chairman Ronald J. McGinley, 1987- .
These records provide information about specimen collections; specimen acquisition, loan, and distribution; budgets; personnel; publications; professional meetings and societies; and research projects. Also included are a few early documents dating from before the 1963 establishment of the Department of Entomology. These early records come from either the Department's predecessor, the Division of Insects, or from United States Department of Agriculture entomologists working in the United States National Museum.
