George Dimmock Papers, circa 1878-1915
George Dimmock (1852-1930) specialized in anatomical studies of beetles. He also edited the entomological journal Psyche from 1877 to 1890.
In 1878 Dimmock began keeping a series of notebooks on his larval studies and his collections. Later he began calling the series Entomological Notes. The notebooks contained observations, notes on collecting localities, and illustrations, many in color. The notebooks are arranged numerically by specimen number. An index to the notebooks is also included. In addition, there is a manuscript, apparently a translation of Algunas Coccinellidae de Cuba which appeared in Estacion Central Agron. Annual of 1906 in Cuba.
