Historical Note:
Edward Albert Chapin (1894-1969), a leading authority on beetles, received a bachelor's degree from Yale University in 1916, a master's degree from Massachusetts State University in 1917 and a Ph.D. in Zoology from George Washington University in 1926. From 1917 to 1920 he worked for the Bureau of Biological Survey. He then worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (from 1920 to 1926 in the Bureau of Animal Industry and from 1926 to 1934 in the Bureau of Entomology). In 1934 he joined the United States National Museum, Division of Insects, and remained there as curator until his retirement in 1954. After moving from Washington, DC, to West Medway, Massachusetts, he became an associate of the Museum of Comparative Zoology.
