Benjamin Pickman Mann, one of the founders of the Cam- bridge Entomological Club and its first secretary and editor of its journal "Psyche", died March 22, 1926. He was born April 30, 1848, the son of Horace Mann, well known as a teacher and advocate of public schools. He graduated from Harvard College in 1870 and for several years lived in Cambridge, where meetings of the Entomological Club were held at his residence in 1874. In 1881 he entered the Entomological Bureau of the U. S. De- partment of Agriculture at Washington and in 1887 became an examiner in the U. S. Patent Office. He was specially interested in entomological literature and bibliography, and while editor of Psyche, a record of entomological publications occupied a large part of the journal. While in Washington he took part in many organizations for social and public work. He was one of the Childrens' Guardians of the City, trustee of a church, member of the Single Tax Association and of the Esperanto Associo.
