During FY 1964 major changes were made in the administrative organization of the Museum of Natural History. The Division of Insects was abolished as part of the Department of Zoology, and a new Department of Entomology was established with Divisions of Neuropteroids, Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, and Myriapoda and Arachnida. The Department of Geology was abolished and in its place were created the Departments of Paleobiology and Mineral Sciences. The Department of Paleobiology included the Divisions of Invertebrate Paleontology, Vertebrate Paleontology, and Paleobotany. The Department of Mineral Sciences contained Divisions of Mineralogy and Meteorites (the equivalents of the old Division of Mineralogy and Petrology).
