Historical Note

Barnard D. Burks (1909-1990) studied at the University of Illinois and received his B.A. in 1933, M.A. in 1934, and Ph.D in entomology in 1937. From 1935 until 1942, he worked for the State Natural History Survey in Urbana, Illinois, as Assistant Entomologist. During World War II, he worked for the United States Army Sanitary Corps from 1942 to 1946. He then returned to the State Natural History Survey in 1946 as Associate Taxonomist, but resigned three years later to accept a position as Entomologist at the Division of Insect Identification, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), located in the Natural History Building in Washington, D.C. After 1972, the Division became the Systematic Entomology Laboratory. In 1964, his title was changed to Collaborative Scientist, and he continued the study of parasitic Hymenoptera until his retirement from the USDA in 1974. Burks also served as Associate Editor of American Midland Naturalist from 1954 to 1967, reviewing entomology papers for the journal.
