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 gives a list of specimens received from various locations in the U. S. and abroad between December 31, 1919 and September 6, 1924. Each entry is marked as kept or returned. Some additional notes are inserted, included printed slips from the Dept. of Agriculture on specimens received for E. A. Schwarz.
