Abstract

Eugene Amandus Schwarz (1844-1928) was an important figure in American entomology, especially in the work of the United States National Museum and the United States Department of Agriculture. His papers concern the taxonomy and biology of insects, especially the Coleoptera, and include correspondence and diaries of Schwarz for trips to Florida (1876, 1919), Cuba (1903-1904), Texas and Arizona (1898 and 1901-1902), Guatemala (1906), Panama (1911); diaries and detailed letters listing itineraries of Shannon; biographical information on Hubbard and Schwarz; and notes and miscellaneous publications. This field book includes, from the front end, notes from a trip to Florida in 1876 and, at the other end, notes from Cuba in 1903-1904. The notes on Florida start from March 8 and end on June 29, 1876. The notes on Cuba start on March 15, 1903 and end on February 18, 1904. The notes are written mostly in German, with some in English. A few notes and cards are inserted.
