Administrative history

The Department of Entomology was formed in 1922 in the Faculty of Agriculture. The department remained in the Faculty of Agriculture until its merger with the Departments of Botany, Genetics, Microbiology and Zoology into the Department of Biological Sciences in the Faculty of Science.

"In addition to teaching the application of scientific principles to the solution of agriculture and forestry problems, and through research, the acquiring of new knowledge ... the Department covers the major fields of entomology [and is] especially mindful of the importance of a strong program of graduate study" (PACCR, 1987). Among the aspects of insect biology studied are morphology, development, physiology, genetics, biochemistry, insect/plant relationships and population biology.

Heads: 1922-1954 Edgar Harold Strickland; 1954-1969 Brian Hocking.

Chairs: 1969-1974 Brian Hocking; 1974-1984 George Eugene Ball; 1984-1989 Beverley K. Mitchell; 1989-1994 Ronald H. Gooding.

Custodial history

These glass plate slides resided in the original wooden box inscribed with E.H. Strickland's name until they were cleaned, scanned, and transferred to acid-free archival enclosures in 2015.

Scope and content

The glass plate slides, also known as lantern slides, were used by the Faculty of Extension, the Department of Entomology, and E.H Strickland for lecture purposes. The 121 slides feature photographs and illustrations of beetles, ants, flies, and many other insect specimens, as well as charts, graphs, and material from textbooks, research, and field work.
