Edward A. Chapin - Field notebook, Colombia, 1941-1942
About the Project
After studying beetles and other insects in the Caribbean, Edward Chapin expanded his scope to include Colombia in 1941 and 1942. He is known for his work on the scarab beetle family which includes Japanese beetles, dung beetles and grapevine beetles among others. His typewritten field notes are full of journal entries, photographs, correspondence, news clippings, maps, checklists and in one case a pressed vanilla orchid.
