August Busck Papers

Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Manuscripts
Date:
1886-1889, 1902-1933
Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
These papers consist of professional correspondence between Busck and his colleagues and other collectors on entomological subjects. Correspondence with Edward Meyrick and Lord Walsingham (Thomas deGrey) may be of special interest. Related material is in the National Museum of Natural History, Department of Entomology: August Busck's Copy of Meyrick's Microlepidoptera, includes extensive marginalia and interleaved correspondence; and August Busck's Rearing Notebooks.
Historical Note:
August Busck (1870-1944) was born and educated in Denmark. In 1893, he came to the United States and settled in West Virginia, where he became an American citizen. After an interval as a florist, Busck began work for the United States Department of Agriculture in 1896, where he remained until his retirement in 1940. A friend and colleague of both Lord Walsingham and Edward Meyrick, Busck was himself a microlepidopterist of real distinction. He made numerous field trips on expeditions into various regions of the western hemisphere, as well as conducting field studies in the United States. While his knowledge of the Lepidoptera was extensive, Busck chose to restrict his main efforts to American fauna, especially the groups formerly known as the Tineira and Torticina.

Date:
1882-1927
Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
This record unit includes papers relating to entomology, especially the taxonomy of the larvae of lepidoptera; correspondence, 1887-1927, between Dyar and others regarding identification and exchange of specimens, comments on published papers, and other professional concerns; Dyar's "Manuscript Notes on Lepidoptera," "Notes On Bombycidae of the United States," and materials relating to his List of North American Lepidoptera, rearing records, and one diary of field trips, 1905-1908; and Dyar's Catalog of Lepidoptera, a list of specimens which he placed in the national collection. The correspondence is located in the Smithsonian Institution Archives. Other materials are housed in the National Museum of Natural History, Department of Entomology; and the National Agriculture Library in Beltsville, Maryland. Consult the Smithsonian Institution Archives for further information.
Historical Note:
Harrison Gray Dyar (1866-1929) was honorary Custodian of the National Museum's collection of lepidoptera for more than thirty years; he served largely as an unpaid curator, although he was briefly on the payroll of the Department of Agriculture. A graduate of Columbia University (Ph.D. 1895), he worked on lepidoptera, especially their larvae; larvae of saw flies, larvae of mosquitoes, and bacteria. Around the turn of the century, interest in mosquito-borne diseases attracted his attention; he and Frederick Knab were responsible for the taxonomic portions of the work on mosquitoes of North and Central America and the West Indies for the volumes published by the Carnegie Institution between 1912 and 1917. He collected and reared insects in New York, Colorado, Florida, British Columbia, Panama, and elsewhere. He was proprietor and editor of Insecutor Inscitiae Menstruus, 1913-1927, as well as editor of other publications.

Descriptive Entry:
This collection of photographs of noted lepidopterists active primarily from the 1840s through the 1950s was assembled over a period of years by staff of the Department of Entomology. Many of the lepidopterists pictured worked for either the United States National Museum or the United States Department of Agriculture.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records created and maintained by Paul J. Spangler, curator at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH). These records include correspondence, grants, loans, administrative records, research materials, manuscripts, specimen information, reference information, and materials related to his work with professional societies.

Paul J. Spangler (1924-2011) received his B.A. from Lebanon Valley College in 1949, his M.S. from Ohio University in 1951, and his Ph.D. in entomology from the University of Missouri in 1960. From 1951 to 1953, he worked as Museum Assistant in Entomology at the University of Kansas. Spangler then accepted a position at the University of Missouri, where he worked as an Instructor in Entomology from 1953 to 1957. In 1957 he was stationed in Juneau, Alaska, as a Fishery Research Biologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, a position he held until 1958. In 1958, Spangler joined the staff of the Entomology Research Division, Agricultural Research Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), located in the United States National Museum (USNM). He was a Systematic Entomologist with the USDA until 1962, when he took a job as an Associate Curator in the Division of Insects, USNM. When the Division of Coleoptera was created in 1963, Spangler became an Associate Curator with that division.

Date:
1963-1967
Descriptive Entry:
A great majority of the records concern donation of other receipt of specimens in the National Museum; distribution or loan of specimens from the Museum; requests for determination of specimens by other entomologists and the general public (a considerable proportion of the determinations were made for state departments of entomology); and general research questions from the public. The Department corresponded with institutions all over the world, including most major United States and Canadian natural history institutions, state entomology departments, and institutions in Latin America, Great Britain, Continental Europe, Australia, and India.

Less prevalent is correspondence between entomologists concerning their research; correspondence concerning manuscripts submitted for publication in the National Museum series or submitted by Department staff to other journals; applications for research grants, mostly by Departmental staff to outside agencies, occasional copies of itineraries for research trips; and a few manuscripts of articles. The most useful correspondence is between the chairmen Clarke and Krombein, and other entomologists regarding their research and collecting expeditions. In the folder list below the more substantial correspondence is indicated by an asterisk.
Historical Note:
The Department of Entomology was organized in the United States National Museum, now the National Museum of Natural History, in July 1963. In 1963 John Frederick Gates Clarke was chairman, and he was succeeded by Karl Krombein in 1966.

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.
