Notes

  • A collection of photographs of noted lepidopterists active primarily from the 1840s through the 1950s was assembled over a period of years by staff of the Department of Entomology. Many of the lepidopterists pictured worked for either the United States National Museum or the United States Department of Agriculture. The majority of the images are not original prints; they were cut out of professional journals and books.
  • Reverend George D. (Duryea) Hulst (1846-1900), entomologist, interested in plants and insects from boyhood on, became a pastor of a congregation in Brooklyn. However he continued studies in natural history and entomology and was recognized as an authority on geometrid moths. Hulst wrote on entomology, published books such as "Classification of the Geometrina of North America," with descriptions of new genera and species, and was an active member of the Brooklyn Entomology Society.
