Summary

John Brooks Henderson, Jr., (1870-1923), was appointed a citizen member of the Smithsonian Institution Board of Regents in 1911 and retained that post until his death. Interested in shell collecting as a youth, Henderson later concentrated on the marine life of the West Indies and participated in several expeditions to the Caribbean. His collections were donated to the United States National Museum, now the National Museum of Natural History. He did volunteer work in the Division of Mollusks in his spare time, and wrote several articles for the Proceedings of the United States National Museum and Bulletin of the United States National Museum.
