Descriptive Entry:
The papers of George B. Vogt primarily document his entomological research and field work during his career with the USDA. They also concern, to a lesser extent, his work with the United States Public Health Service, 1942-1947, and entomological research before and after his career in federal service. They include correspondence and memoranda concerning the identification of specimens, publication of scientific papers, professional activities, and field work, especially his trips to Burma, Spain and southwestern Asia, and South America; field notes, 1933-1991, which contain information on specimens collected; and correspondence, notes, and drafts from his work on a chapter on Coleoptera which appeared in Insects of Panama and Mesoamerica: Selected Studies, 1992.
Historical Note:
George B. Vogt (1920-1991), an entomologist and authority on leaf beetles and longhorned beetles, was educated at the University of Maryland (B.S., 1941; M.S., 1949). His professional career began in 1942 when he joined the United States Public Health Service as an Entomologist assigned to various World War II studies. In 1949, Vogt was appointed Entomologist with the Insect Detection and Identification Branch, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and assigned to taxonomic work at the United States National Museum. He remained with the Branch, and its successor organization, the Systematic Entomology Laboratory (SEL) until 1972, when he was reassigned to the USDA's Southern Weed Science Lab (SWSL) in Stoneville, Mississippi. Vogt retired from the USDA in 1978, but continued his research at the SEL and SWSL until his death.

Vogt participated in several field expeditions during his career at the USDA. From 1950 to 1952, he was in Burma working on a mosquito survey. In 1956, Vogt explored Spain and southwest Asia for potential biological control agents for the weed Halogeton, and from 1960 to 1962, he traveled to South America to conduct investigations on the natural enemies of alligator weed.
