Place:

Date:
circa 1933-1991
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.

Melford E. Spiro was a psychological anthropologist whose career included fieldwork on the Pacific Atoll of Ifaluk, on kibbutzim in Israel, and in Burma. His research topics included child rearing, cooperation, aggression, and supernatural beliefs. He was renowned for his "careful, insightful, and insistent emphasis upon motivational and psychological underpinnings of human behavior…and upon the need to take them into account in cross-cultural analysis." (Jordan)

While a PhD student at Northwestern University, Spiro was introduced to psychological anthropology by A. Irving Hallowell, who became a lifelong mentor and friend. After receiving his PhD in 1950, he went on to teach at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Universities of Connecticut, Washington, and Chicago before becoming the founding chair of the anthropology department at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in 1968. He recruited the department's first faculty members in 1969 including Roy D'Andrade, Marc J. Swartz, Theodore Schwartz, Robert I. Levy, David K. Jordon, and Joyce Bennett Justus. Spiro also received training in psychoanalysis after arriving in San Diego and practiced as a lay analyst while establishing links to the medical school to provide anthropology graduate students with general psychiatric training.

Spiro served terms as president of the American Ethnological Society and the Society for Psychological Anthropology (SPA). He was one of the founders of Ethos, the SPA's journal. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and was the recipient of two Guggenheim fellowships and an Einstein Fellowship from the Israel Academy of Science. He also received an Excellence-in-Teaching award from the Chancellor's Associates at UCSD based on his mentoring of anthropology graduate students.
