This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
This collection contains notes taken and plates prepared for the following: Diptera, Heteroptera, Hemiptera, Orthoptera, Homoptera, Hymenoptera, Neuroptera, Coleoptera, and Lepidoptera, and to a lesser extent, Arachnida, Myriapoda, Crustacea, Annelida, and Entozoa. They include rough notes, prepared notes, and in some cases, lithographed final copies for Glover's projected publications, many of which were never printed.
Historical Note:
Townend Glover (1813-1883) was the first entomologist of the United States Department of Agriculture. In 1854 he was appointed to the Bureau of Agriculture of the Patent Office to collect statistics and other information on seeds, fruits, and insects. He remained in government service with one brief interruption until 1878.

Glover began publishing his drawings and notes in 1871 and continued through 1878. In 1872 he published an author's edition of the plates of Orthoptera. A publication on the Diptera followed in 1874, and one on Hemiptera in 1876. In 1878 he issued his last publication, 12 copies of his entire set of 273 plates. He deposited most of his notes and plates in the National Museum before 1878, and the government purchased the set of his copper plates.
