Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
This record unit contains records of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology, 1964-1972, as well as records created by its predecessor, the Department of Zoology, 1952-1964. Most of the latter records document the Department of Zoology under Head Curators Herbert Friedmann, 1957-1961; Fenner A. Chace, Jr., acting head curator, 1961-1962; and Horton H. Hobbs, Jr., 1962-1964. A small amount of records were created during the head curatorship of Waldo LaSalle Schmitt, 1947-1957. For administrative histories of the Department of Zoology see record units 143 and 243. Included in the record unit is general correspondence of the Department of Zoology, 1952-1964 and the Department of Invertebrate Zoology, 1964-1973; files of the chairman of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology, 1964-1973; annual reports, 1956-1972; and administrative records, 1954-1972.
Historical Note:
The Department of Invertebrate Zoology was created in 1964 when the Department of Zoology was divided into three new departments: Vertebrate Zoology, Invertebrate Zoology, and Entomology. The Divisions of Marine Invertebrates and Mollusks were under administrative control of the newly created Department. On July 1, 1965, the Division of Marine Invertebrates was abolished and three new divisions were formed--Crustacea, Echinoderms, and Worms--and were joined with the existing Division of Mollusks to form the Department of Invertebrate Zoology. Chairmen of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology have included Donald F. Squires, 1964-1965; Joseph Rosewater, acting chairman, 1966; Raymond B. Manning, 1967-1971; David L. Pawson, 1971-1976; and W. Duane Hope, 1976- .
