Summary

Creator:
Barber, Herbert Spencer 1882-1950
Title:
Herbert Spencer Barber Papers, 1903-1950
Data Source:
Smithsonian Institution Archives
Dates:
1903, 1903-1950
Notes:
Herbert Spencer Barber (1882-1950) was associated with entomology in the United States National Museum, Division of Insects, from 1898 until his death in 1950, for many years as an assistant to Eugene Amandus Schwarz. For most of this time, Barber was an employee of the Department of Agriculture.
Summary:
These papers mostly concern Barber's professional work as an entomologist and administration of the work of the Department of Agriculture and the National Museum. His field notebooks include information on his trips to California, 1903; Texas, 1904 and 1918; Guatemala, 1906; and Arizona, 1914; and lists of photographs of specimens taken during the trips. In a series of outgoing correspondence, 1904-1909, family and other personal correspondence predominates, but in later correspondence, professional and museum matters assume priority. Some letters to and from Schwarz are included, probably a result of their close association. This latter correspondence is concerned with Museum and Department of Agriculture business, including acquisition of specimens, arrangements for study at the Museum, internal administration, acquisition and loan of specimens, and answers to questions and requests for determinations. A substantial proportion of the correspondence consists of professional communications between Barber and other entomologists concerning questions of taxonomy and biology of insects.

Historical Note

Herbert Spencer Barber (1882-1950) was associated with entomology in the United States National Museum, Division of Insects, from 1898 until his death in 1950. A man with little formal education, he was appointed as assistant preparator of insects in 1898, and until 1902 worked directly for Eugene Amandus Schwarz. From 1902-1904 he was employed by the United States Department of Agriculture, part of which time he spent studying cotton insects in the southern states. From 1904 to 1908 he was back in the museum with Schwarz. From 1908 until his death in 1950 he was a specialist on beetles in the Division of Insect Identification in the Agriculture Department. During these years he worked mostly in the museum, in association with Schwarz until the latter1s death in 1928. Barber collected insects in the United States, Mexico and Guatemala, and he was an internationally recognized authority on chrysomelid bruchid and lampyrid beetles. He had wide knowledge extending beyond his own specialties, the coleoptera, and even the field of entomology.

Descriptive Entry

These papers concern mostly his professional work as an entomologist and administration of the work of the Department of Agriculture and the National Museum. His field notebooks include information on his trips to California (1903), Texas (1904 and 1918), Guatemala (1906), and Arizona (1914), and lists of photographs of specimens taken during the trips. In a series of outgoing correspondence, 1904-1909, family and other personal correspondence predominates, but in later correspondence, professional and museum matters assume priority. Some letters to and from Schwarz are included, probably a result of close association. This latter correspondence is concerned with Museum and Agriculture business, including acquisition of specimens, arrangements for study at the Museum, internal administration, acquisition and loan of specimens, and answers to questions and requests for determinations; a substantial proportion of the correspondence consists of professional communication between Barber and other entomologists concerning questions of taxonomy and biology of insects.

Prominent correspondents are listed in the description of each series, followed by folder lists. Some Barber material remains in the Department of Entomology, notably random nomenclature and taxonomic notes on various genera of Chrysomelidae (.75 cubic foot) and card files of collecting and research work at Plummer's Island.

Series 1

NOTEBOOKS, 1903-1918, 12 VOLUMES.

These notebooks include field notebooks or diaries of field trips. Barber kept detailed diaries of his trips, which reveal his methods of collecting and much about his personality. Most of the trips were collecting expeditions, although he also records information about conversations with colleagues and research in literature and study of collections. These notebooks contain some information about specimens sent to the National Museum. Additional notebooks contain information about Barber's publications and the numerous photographs he took on trips.

OUTGOING CORRESPONDENCE, 1904-1909, 1 BOUND VOLUME WITH PARTIAL INDEX.

Box 2

Primarily personal and professional correspondence of Barber during his second period of work with Schwarz. Personal correspondence predominates, including letters to his father, brother, and sister; in addition to personal topics, these letters document some of the relationships between persons on the Museum and Department of Agriculture staffs, mostly from Barber's point of view. Other letters relate mostly to collection or identification of specimens, and some letters are written in the course of executing business for Schwarz. Correspondents include: George Charles Champion, Douglas Harrison Clemmons, Charles Dury, Henry Clinton Fall, Adelbert Fenyes, C. J. Gahan, Vincent Warner; and Eugene Amandus Schwarz when he was away from Washington. (1 bound volume)

Series 3

CORRESPONDENCE, 1906-CIRCA 1939.

This series, 1906-circa 1939, and the following series, through 1950, comprise the major professional correspondence of Herbert Barber. It is primarily concerned with Museum business, including acquisition and loan of specimens, arrangements for study at the Museum, internal administration, and answer of questions and requests for determinations; but a substantial proportion of the correspondence consists of professional communications between Barber and other entomologists concerning questions of the taxonomy and biology of insects, including drafts of articles, mostly Barber's, and exchanges of correspondence about publications. Correspondents for whom there is correspondence of substantial interest include: John Merton Aldrich (especially regarding trip to Guatemala); Gilbert J. Arrow; Kenneth G. Blair; Frank E. Blaisdell; J. R. de la Torre Bueno; Francisco Campos R; Frank Hurlburt Chittenden; Kenneth W. Cooper; Charles Dury; George Paul Englehardt; Henry Clinton Fall; Howard B. Hinton; Walther Horn; Charles William Leng; Frank Alexander McDermott; Andrew J. Mutchler; Frank J. Psota; John D. Sherman; Joseph Mason Valentine. The correspondence is international, including especially Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, England, France, Germany, Japan, and Spain. Administration is the primary topic in folders of Leland Ossian Howard, Harold Morrison, and Sievert Allen Rohwer. Correspondence exists with many institutions, but it is especially extensive with the American Museum of Natural History, the Carnegie Museum (see John R. Bowman), the Deutsches Entomologisches Institut (see Walther Horn), and Museum National D'Histoire Naturelle (see R. Jeannel). Barber wrote an article on an unrecorded journey of Thomas Say in Mexico, on which he had correspondence with Philip P. Calvert (also see Thomas Say).

Numerous letters to or from Eugene Amandus Schwarz are included in these two series, notably in the file for Raymond C. Shannon. Probably this was the inevitable result of the the thirty-years' association betweem Barber and Schwarz.

The two series of correspondence, divided about 1939, apparently were retained by Schwarz, although they may have resulted from later arrangement.
